“Loved our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Stayed 3 nights before a cruise & we loved the 'Aqua' and felt it was close to everything for us and had no issues with the room. The staff were friendly and directed us were we wanted to go. Would stay again if in Miami!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Receptionists are very positive and helpfull. The few complaints we had were handled immediately and competently. Great location right next to Lincoln Road Mall and close to the beach. The hotel probably has the cheapest valet parking in Miami Beach (20 $ a day). Rooms are basic with paper-thin walls.

I stayed here for one night in June. The place served it purpose and the purpose was to sleep there. No extras at all. Very basic

Pros: Nice location and wonderful staff. Helped me when the cab could not find the hotel. Water pressure in shower was great!

Cons: very basic. Bed small tv with few cable channels. Poor lighting. No a/c

I stood here last weekend and honestly it was by far the worse hotel I stayed at. Room was hot. They have better AC in lobby. I thought we were the paying customer, not the employees. Toilet didn't flush. Lights didn't work because light bulbs needed to be replaced. She switched our room for the same piece of garbage. When it rains the place floods so if you're going out of hotel make sure you wear swimming shoes. Overall a very uncomfortable stay. Btw, beware of the cement bag that sits in front of door when going to your room. Garbage!!!!!

If you pay cheap you will get a cheap room, so do not coplain if you are paying cheap. This Hotel is a very Cheap Hotel and nly have what you need, they room is average the service is poor but friendly, you cannot control de A/C, the WI-FI is free and it has a good signal. The rrom is not very good clean in fact the housekeeping made the cleaning of your room in 5 min, so do not spect more, the shower makes a lot of noise and the hotel have a papaer walls you can hear everything.

However it has a good location is near of Ocean Drive, Lincon RD and Washintong AV, is a nice Hotel at the outside, in the afternoons and morning is very quiet.

The continental breakfast has coffe and bread no do not spect a big breakfast.

I really recommend this Hotel if only you will goes to sleep, I spend 3 nights with my boyfriend and everything was good because we just slept there, if you want a service and room of 5 stars go and pay a more expensive Hotel, do not complain if you want pay cheap.

Room Tip: Do not come with car you will have a fee $20USD per day.

To be specific me & my boyfriend stayed in a "deluxe suite"(218). First thing that sucked is that we couldn't control the ac and the room was ridiculously HOT we asked front desk to turn it down and they said they couldn't!! Then we couldn't open the door with the key they gave us we went down to tell them, and all they said was "don't force it" so we came back and tried for like 20 more minutes after that we went back down to tell them again them the guy came with another key and said I think the knob is broken. This is where it gets worse he then opened the window to the room and my boyfriend jumped in to open the door! How could anyone sleep after that knowing anyone can open the windows as they please!! The toilets after you flush them they make a really loud beeping sound for like 30 minutes and if it doesn't make that noise the water runs for like 15 minutes and from the looks of it our bathroom wasn't the only one that made noice because we could hear the other bathrooms make the same noice. The bathroom is disgustingly dirty, the knobs to turn on the sink Kept falling off when we would turn on the sink you had to Screw it back on to turn the sink off. The bed squeaks terribly. Oh and the "continental breakfast" it's just toast, with jelly, coffee and oj. It should not be called a suite! I would never stay here again DO NOT be fooled by the pictures on their website it looks nothing like that! Motel 6 is heavenly compared to this dump!

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here and wow what a delight it was! The hotel staff was very nice and helpful to my girlfriend and I greeting us when we came in and left everyday. The hotel its self was clean and had awesome water pressure in the shower. Also it is located in great place right on Collins Ave centrally located to all great attractions in Miami. Another big plus as well was the Wi-Fi. It was nice to know that I could use my laptop to look up restaurants around South Beach and also right this review! Overall it was a very nice stay that had great location/access, Wi-Fi, cleanliness, and continental breakfast! I will be staying here again on my next trip to Miami!!

Room Tip: Any room at Aqua is a great room!
