“Nice clean property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Located in quiet area of Miami Beach. Room was big and clean with kitchen area good for long stays. Collins Rd and Lincoln Rd close by. Only hassle is parking. You have to pay $20 per day on top of the $15 per day resort fee. Free wi-fi worked well.

Hello there Min_FL,

Thank you so much for sharing your honest feedback with us, regarding your recent stay! We are located a bit further north of all the action. A cab ride would take a few minutes, and only cost a few bucks. We only charge a $15 resort fee that covers all of the amenities that we include. We hope to see you again when coming to Miami!

Our whole stay at the Tradewinds Apartment Hotel from check in to departure was fantastic. All the staff was really friendly and helpful and our room was very clean and extremely spacious. The pool, outside seating area and various courtyards were very pleasant and it was great to have bikes on site (Free rentals). We will be back, and next time we will stay longer. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by an extremely friendly staff. Although, they were very busy I felt like they were very attentive to my needs and wants.

The staff is dedicated to providing great service and makes you feel like family. We plan to return and highly recommend this suite hotel when you visit SOBE. Publix is located less than a mile down the road.

Moreover, at the Tradewinds Apartment Hotel building; you will be notice pretty good interior finishes. A FULL kitchen with black peral granite tops, an under mount sink, dark wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances (Full Stove, refrigerator and microwave) and track lighting. Full bathroom include decent fixtures. (Bathroom is rather small, but not an issue because of the overall size of the room makes that a none issue.Central air conditioning throughout and basic porcelain tile flooring. Once outside this apartment, it is a 4 minute walk to the beautiful famous beaches of SOBE. Oh yeah, Wi-Fi is also included and parking is $20 a night in an adjunct uncovered parking lot. However, free parking is available in the front of the hotel but very limited. Please do not park in the restricted areas (You will get towed for a price of $170). Last but not least an EXCELLENT VALUE!!! Free airport shuttle too. The list goes on and on..

Special thanks to Joan and Jennifer they were exceptional and professional.

Nice apartments in south beach, with a nice small swimming pool with sun beds. Towels for the pool can you get at the reception. The apartment is very spacious with a living room with a large refrigerator, cooking range and a big flat screen tv and a bedroom with a small bathroom. The wifi signal was not very strong, because in half of the apartment it did not work. The cleaning of the rooms could be much better the floor was really dirty you could not walk barefoot, and two of the four pillows smelled bad. Parking around the apartments is very difficult, but the few in front of the building are free of charge.

Good and clean place near 23rd street. Not exactly at South Beach but easy to reach with LOCAL BUS (25 Cents). Have nice pool and garden. Fully equipped Apartments with microwave and fridge and cooking facilities, cutlery etc. Free shuttle from and to Airport. Shuttle is not named "Tradewinds" but "South beach Group of Hotels". So I missed it and paid for private Transportation.

Second stay, last time 5 days a year ago, this time 19 days. Location is very good, close to the beach but unfortunately some construction was going on so some beach access roads was closed resulting in a bit longer walk, temporarily.

This Apartment was even a little bit better than last time as the bedroom was bigger so we did not have the AC right by the bed (put a armchair in front of it to avoid it blowing straight on to the bed).

This Apartment was also pretty well equipped, but as we stayed longer we started missing some very small things that would make a world of difference in the kitchen, little thins like a knife, bowls, measures, and so on.... Would, together with other small problems mentioned later, probably take the hotel to another 5 rating instead of being a 3 (i´m really torn between 3 and 4 3.5? and considering the relatively good price (for the area) maybe leaning to a 4, shame about whose small things!!!).
A dishwasher wold also be nice, staying for a longer period....

Another very annoying but small thing that now lowers the rating is that housekeeping just can not manage to give back the same number of towels after cleaning, some day none at all an i do not think they got it right once in 19 days :-(
It feels like the place is going a bit downhill, not as spotless as last time, some cracks by the bathtub and details like that shows a bit of lack of maintenance....

Otherwise the cleaning is okay, they do wash the floor but it is still always a bit dirty.

The pool is pretty small and there´s not really enough chairs and beds around.
Here the hotel has another problem they should address! They do have pool rules as everyone do but in no way do they see to that they are followed, we only used the pool ones as it was occupied by rude guests, diving and splashing so that gusts with kids had to leave! They was even allowed to carry on after pools closing time, luckily we did not get a room by the pool as we requested!

The parking is provided by availability, The hotel was packed as we arrived but after 2 days we did get a spot, You might be able to haggle for the same or maybe even lower price in the private parking close by but otherwise the hotel parking is probably the best choice in the area, some spots on the street is free but almost impossible to get, seems as valet´s from other hotels use this spots to, they put another car in the spot as they get one car out :-(

The staff is nice especially one girl at front desk, cleaning ladies is an exception, we always say hi but they only answered on or two times, no smiles....

Notes.
According to the homepage You get free happy hour on several sister hotels, it´s not true, only one hotel and its not one of the listed.

Construction is going on at "Banana Bungalow" (was before anyway), did not bother us but maybe if you get a room on that side.

Experienced a new way of painting windows that really puzzled me! They spray the frame and part of the glass (see picture) when scrape of the paint from glass instead of masking before painting, very curious to way anyone would do that ;-)

At checkout the guy at the desk took a very long time as he started dealing with another guest, having parking problems. Ended up in him forgetting to give back our credit card, we had a lot of hassle, contacting the bank on the way to the airport.

Room Tip: Rooms on first floor has stairs, but you avoid noise from above. Rooms by the pool are probably nois...
