“Overall good hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

I stayed there from 26 June to 2 July 2015 (6 nights).
Overall good hotel.
No restaurant in the hotel, the breakfast has to be taken in a restaurant nearby (vouchers available at the reception). Same with the swimming pool : available for guests in a hotel nearby.
The whole crew at the reception were very nice and helpful, especially Anthony who was more than generous with information about good restaurants in the neighborhood and places to visit.
The hotel crew at the beach however was just unpleasant and arrogant.

South Beach Hotel was a very nice, decorative hotel with an economical price. The beds were comfortable; the room was spacious and clean. It had a small refrigerator stocked with beverages and beer. There was also alcohol and snacks in the room for purchase. The front desk receptionist was very nice and helpful. Her name was Yesenia. My husband and I enjoyed the 5 minute walk from the hotel to the beach each day. The hotel provides vouchers for a free breakfast, but the restaurant serving the breakfast is two doors down from the hotel. The restaurant is a little fancy and overpriced, but the dinner food was good and you will receive a discount voucher for your dinners at that restaurant. The breakfast is not much...you may be better off driving to IHOP if you are really hungry. Overall, our stay was comfortable and pleasant. We will definitely book a room there again when we are back in Miami.

My wife and I stayed at SBH South Beach Hotel in June 2015, with plans to join up with friends who stayed at the W. Our room was very clean and nice, with a great view of the park across the street. It's a short walk across Collins Ave to the beach, where the SBH staff provide towels, chairs, and umbrellas. Few people come to Miami Beach to stay in their rooms, so we were very happy to have an affordable place to stay, but still be close to the beach and to Art Deco District on Ocean Ave. Parking is definitely at a premium, so either don't bring a car, or plan on using the hotel valet (which is only slightly more expensive than parking it yourself, and is actually cheaper than using the parking meters).

Parking a nightmare so no option but to use the $38 valet parking service. Room hot and uncomfortable as the basic air conditioning unit could not cope with the Miami temperature. Drains flooded base of shower when showering, which was disgusting

Loved our stay here! So clean and the staff was wonderful....Especially Jonathon! We loved him! He was so nice and helpful when we couldn't find the pool. The bottomless mimosas at the orange blossom was a good idea at the time ;) Thanks Jonathon you're the best!!!
