“Close to beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Stayed here after a cruise. I was pleasantly surprised on the size of the room. There were four of us. And a free breakfast for all. Staff was very helpful and even allowed me to use their computers for free. We had stayed at another hotel before the cruise and this one was by far the better of the two. This hotel is probably above average if you consider price. They are upgrading the elevators which is a good thing.

I stayed for 3 days with friends to celebrate a birthday. The staff was friendly and accommodating throughout our entire stay, particularly their concierge, Charlie. They stowed our bags when we arrived before check in time, and until 5pm without a charge ($5 per bag after 5pm) when we checked out. We stayed in a cabana room by the pool. It was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Bring earplugs though, as it was a little noisy in the early morning hours. We loved the complimentary water in the lobby, and daily free drink at the bar. The beach was just a block from the hotel. This area of south beach is a bit less crowded than the area near Ocean Drive, but thats not necessarily a bad thing since all the hustle and bustle is only a short cab or bus drive away. Charlie helped us plan our trip and find great spots to eat, shop, and sightsee. She was also able to give us coupons for places the hotel was affiliated with, like Nikki Beach restaurant/lounge. little extra perks like that always make me happy. Overall, the value and decor of this hotel definitely exceeds its cost. I would definitely come stay again.

This is an older hotel with all the amenities necessary. Very small bathrooms two people cannot fit in the bathroom at the same time, If you are taller than 5'7" your knees will hit the wall while 'sitting down'. The elevators are slow and old, I actually tried the stairs once because it was so slow but the stairs are uneven and very dangerous indeed. Amazing staff working very hard to help you with anything.

Dear Heather W:

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge our amazingly hard working staff. Your wish is our command.

Our Petite Queen rooms are, as indicated in the name, small in nature. In the future, we might recommend you reserve a standard king or pool view room, providing additional space for you and your guests to enjoy.

In regards to our elevators, we have just undergone a technical modernization and we are working on some additional cosmetic embellishments for Spring.

So we may best ensure your comfort, in preparation your next visit please contact me directly (concierge@redsouthbeach.com).

Enjoyed joining the small community of this hotel for one night. Charlie hooked us up with the pool cabana. Fun people watching and cosmic decor. Loved the water in the lobby and the laid back feel. Thank you, Charlie!

From check in to check out we were treated famously by all of the staff, especially the reception. Had a great time. Really enjoyed dual flat screens playing the NCAA games even though we lost. Thank you y hasta pronto Miami.

Free complimentary drink each night of your stay
The Hotel bell boys are great, friendly and informative on the city
Bartender was friendly and welcoming
Rooms were spacious for a small boutique hotel, bed were so comfortable I felt like I was in a 5 star room.
Clean and modern looking.
The onsite restaurant was a good value for breakfast and lunch, but a 5 minute walk will take you to a grocery store, subway, liquor store, bar, and 2 restaurants.
Think it was great deal.
Beach access from across the street and the hotel provides you with towels and a beach chair.
$7.00 cab ride to the heart of Ocean Drive, but if your not wearing heels you can certainly enjoy the 15-20 min walk along the strip and enjoy the shoppes and food.
Dont think im gonna bother with a big hotel after seeing the value of this boutique.

The decor at this place was what drew me to book here. I found out that they don't really clean the showers to save water, but it sorta sucks when we go to the beach often. Definitely a reasonable priced small boutique. 10 minute walk to beach.
