“Awesome Hotel! A Must Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Im from North Carolina and decided to come to South Beach, Miami for my Birthday and Im so glad I did. The staff at SBH(South Beach Hotel) were very friendly and helpful at making check In and Checking out a very smooth process. Maryrose and Erica made my stay at South Beach worth every penny. Next time I come to South Beach I will be staying here AGAIN! Thank you Maryrose, Erica, Michelle, Ramon and room service You all are the BEST!. I would recommend everybody to stay here. The rooms were great, the staff at their "sister" hotel which is next door were awesome as well. The clubs, bars,restaurants and Ocean is a block away, or short walking distance!(Great Location).

Very Respectful! A pleased Customer

Booked at the last minute. Hotel is very chic.. Carpets in gallways a little rum down eith stains. Room was very clean. I did find an old blood stain on inside of comforter, looks like it was washed, nonetheless should be discarded if stain doesn't come out. No pool on premises but you can use pool next door. Beach is 2 blocks away and Lincoln Rd is less than 1/2 a mile walk. Great location!

The room was so small. The service was nice. The breakfast was good. But parking was a total pain and overnight parking was 28/night. The a/c was fixed at 70 degrees and it was too hot. We had to pay a $20/resort fee...for nothing. There was NO pool. We overheard the clerk telling a guest that she could use the pool next door at their sister property but we were never told about it. It was just disappointing and inconsistent.

we were looking for a hotel close to the exhibition centre in Miami and the SBH became available with 2 rooms as we required at so short notice as we were only going to stay for overnight as we were holidaying in orlando.we arrived and on the outside it looked great matching the online photos we entered and on through reception we got one room down and one room upstairs.both rooms were great on the corner of the building the beds were great the rooms were clean what we didn't need was a shop in our room u can have a mini bar but this was over the top. could not even make a cup of anything without having to pay for it.and why would I want to buy ur towels or tee shirts? apart from that would I stay at ur hotel and recommend it yes I would .oh need to sort out odour upstairs.

Thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to share your experience.

We are thrilled you had a great stay, enjoyed our Clean Rooms and our Location was exactly what you expected. Our extensive mini bar is not meant to be a retail shop, yet a convenient amenity for our guests to take advantage of if the need presents itself.

We hope you will come back to visit us very soon!

Sincerely,

I recently traveled to Miami and before leaving I was looking for a hotel close enough to Lincoln Road but not directly on the strip. SBH South Beach Hotel is just off Collins Ave on 21st. The hotel is small but I liked how quiet it was so there wasn't much noise. The staff is super friendly and helped us in every way. Rooms are very clean, there isn't a tub in the room if you wanted to take a bath but otherwise its decent. Beds are very comfy and if you forget anything they have it available in the room like sun tan lotion or even sunglasses. Overall I enjoyed my stay. It felt more personal then other hotels I've stayed in and I would recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed here in June 2014. There was a rain storm as we arrived. We struggled into the reception after a delayed 9 hour flight . We were soaking wet and needed to ask where the parking garage was as there was no available space out front. The two young girls on the desk smiled politely but made not effort to help with the doors or our cases. We were told we would get the parking garage ticket when we filled all the checkin forms in and these were given to us. I asked if we could get the keys etc sorted later and just sort parking out first. The girl just shrugged and said we had to complete everything first . We then were given the whole talk on how to use the vouchers for breakfast , pool next door , extra towels etc. There was no feeling of being a valued guest - just someone who needed to be given the keys and vouchers.
The voucher for the parking worked fine. The garage was in the same block and the staff were efficient and friendly.
There was no restaurant at the hotel but vouchers for breakfast to be used at a place on the same block. The food was so good we went back for dinner. Vouchers were for drinks and either granola/ yogurt , pancakes or scrambled egg on toast. All were good.
We had a twin and King rooms. Both had a contemporary feel and plenty of space. The pictures on the wall were a little weird ( in the king room they were of a child in adult shoes wearing a Star Wars type white helmet and standing on a beach) but not offensive. The shower stall was large and the pressure was good.
The beds were really comfortable and the linen was white and crisp and clean.
On the second night the people opposite decided to play very loud music at about 1am. After about half an hour we rang guest services and asked if they could ask them to turn it down. Very soon after we heard someone knock on the door and politely ask that they turn the music off. The guest said it was his birthday and he was celebrating. The hotel employee was polite but insistent and the guest turned the music if. Whilst we didn't ask for off - just a lot quieter, we thought it was handled well.
Although we didn't use it we had access to the partner hotels roof pool and the hotel provided beach towels and chairs for guests.
The beach was easily and safely accessible with just one road to cross ( that had a proper crossing).
We would definitely consider the hotel again especially if the front desk service improved.

Had a great stay here with two friends. We had a junior suite with three beds, and the rooms looked very good and were perfectly cleaned every day. The staff helped us out with tickets to some events and taxis, so I'm also very happy with the service.

We didn't use the nearby pool, so I can't speak of that. 4 minutes walking distance to the beach, so it has a good location although not "perfect". The free breakfast was ok, the food was tasty, but it could have been a bit larger servings. You also have to walk around the block to the restaurant who serves the food.

Room Tip: The junior suite is great if you are three persons who wants to share a room.
