“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

We stayed for three nights and the location is great. Close enough to the beach, but quiet at night. The check in went well and staff efficient and helpful. The corridors look basic but the rooms are clean and have everything that you need.
Pleasant surprise to find coffee machine and microwave. Excellent fast free wifi.
Air con rather noisy, but overall very pleased.

Stayed April 2015, traveled as a couple

Hard to find a better location for the price they charge. That is their strongest point.
Clean but outdated, nice staff but scarce, good interned connection and free wi fi.
Helpful with us to take tours and transportation. But no pool, breakfast really basic but good and no possibilities to open windows of the rooms, bathrooms clean but without good ventilation. Good for people without great expectations and younger crowd.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms facing 8th street or Pennsylvania avenue.

A helpful staff and a very comfortable hotel. Great location. close enough to walk to Ocean Ave and Washington Ave. The one night we spent there was very comfortable. Parking is valet and cost $27 for the night ( the only drawback)

We spent one night in Miami Beach waiting our flight to Exuma. The hotel has a very good position, although not on the shoreline it is walking distance to the most important places as Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road. However the maintenance level is low, rooms may need some refurbishment and overall value for money is not good. It needs some improvement. Acceptable for a short stay, not suggested for a long one.

The cost is reasonable for this South Beach hotel. The location is amazing...2 blocks from the beach, restaurants on Ocean Drive, trendy retail stores, liquor stores etc. An Ok continental breakfast in the morning that will hold you to lunch time. The hotel is an old hotel but we found it clean. All we wanted was a place to sleep before the cruise the next day. It is perfect for that purpose.

We stayed for four nights in January and were very satisfied. Hotel has a perfect location, walking distance to everywhere. The staff was very helpful (first time in Miami) and friendly. The room was very clean but it could use some re modelling. Overall, we would stay there again.

We choose this discount hotel and were not disappointed. Excellent location just a couple blocks from the beach and from the art deco historic district. The staff was very helpful; they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite for no charge. Yes, the building is somewhat aged but still very serviceable.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the 3rd floor. The 2nd floor has the ice machine and a rooftop sundeck.
