“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights and it was quite a pleasant stay. Got to the hotel from airport via 150 bus, which was a quick n cheap way of getting there, only 2.65 dollars. the bus stop is situated near the hotel which made it convenient. The location of the hotel was brilliant everything was so close, restaurant and shops are just a few steps away! The beach is only like a 5 minute walk.
The room size was surprisingly big although it was not the nicest decorated room i have seen, it is still a pleasant condition to stay in. The bathroom was good size too but the showers got very confusing to use as it was hard to get it onto the right temperature.

Stayed in Private room. Room was spacious and clean. Had great amenities and wonderful location. No issues. This place had everything we needed. Nice cold a/c, tv and pool. Never really spent too much time in room as we were busy seeing the city. Great deal!

The bathrooms were ghetto and run down. Our room had no air conditioner or refrigerator. You get what you pay for. The only good things was the pool and the black cat hanging out in and outside the lobby.

OK came in on a Friday and this was the cheapest available hotel. Not terrible. I barely stayed in the room as I went straight to the beach! Service was good. The gentleman was very helpful. The room was two single beds....good sleep. The bathroom needs cleaning and some upgrade....but really cannot complain as I was only there before my cruise. Decent for the money! Location was the best for this hotel .....close to beach and shopping and dining

I think this is the best choice if you choose the hotel with low prices and good location. I stayed in this hotel for 1 week and my budget was limited, it looks quite old inside, but clean and nice for this price. My Macedonian friend advised me to stay here when she heard I was planning to go to Miami. She told me that I would not find anything better for this low price. I totally agree with her. The hotel is just 5 minutes walking to Ocean drive and Miami beach, I liked our room. The bed-linen was clean and fresh, same like the room, the tv was working, we had a small kitchen too. There is a pool in the hotel, which we couldn't even expect for this price. My friends and I enjoyed our time there. I will recommend for the people that are not looking for a luxury hotel and want to save their money and enjoy their time at the same time.

I visit South Beach twice each year and almost always plan my stay at The Tropics. I find the hotel to be clean, basic and comfortable and includes a nice pool for the money. The hotel is close to everything including the beach only a block away! I find the staff friendly andI enjoy meeting them each time I visit South Beach! I will return to this good value for the dollar in Miami!

I love the staff, they were so easygoing and friendly. Rooms are decent but people were great. Bathrooms are nice. The building is great and i like the location of that hostel very much! You can walk 3 minutes to Miami beach!
