Stayed here as part of a fly-drive around Florida. Got the deal on Last minute as a secret hotel. Read some pretty damning reviews before we arrived but quite frankly they are well off-the-mark in my opinion.
Location - so you are 2 mins walk from the beach. Hotel supplies towels and fold-up seats to take- you can rent a parasol for $12 a day from the group with the orange deckchairs located just north of the jib. Be warned - the lady less than 5 metres away from us had her bag stolen whilst we were there - so they are some accomplished covert vagabonds in operation- just leave your valuables in the complimentary room safe! It will take you about 25 mins to walk to the main area of South Beach/Ocean Drive- which we enjoyed as it is away from the all the noise and lets you walk off the numerous cocktails you will most likely consume. We parked on the street 2 blocks away- $1/hr- 8am to 6pm, just need to top up in the morning.
Rooms very nice and red- kind of cool! There was noise in the corridors on one night when some fellow residents were trying to wake their sleeping friend, who presumably had the only room key, but you need to remember this is Miami Beach and not a health spa. All resolved quickly anyway.
There is some construction work going on over the road- but it's far enough away to not be an issue- there lots going on all the place actually.
Staff very friendly.
Pleasantly surprised and recommended!
