“Excellent location to explore Miami beach ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Minutes from the beach and in the centre of the Art Deco district

Good sized room and friendly staff

Free breakfast buffet was a nice surprise.

Our shower didn't provide hot water and parking is a two block walk away which wasn't fun when dragging cases in the Miami heat!

The location of this small hotel is really great but the current construction going on along Collins Ave leave a lot to be desired. No parking facility, so no valet parking, nearest parking is a multi story on 16th Street or open lot parking on 13th Street. If you have suit cases and plan on staying more than one night be prepared to haul your luggage. Not sure why they bill you a $10 Resort Fee but they do. On a plus side the room was very clean, as was the facility, the staff very friendly, A/C in room is thermostat controlled by you so that is good. Ah but breakfast is a joke, coffee, OJ, banana or apple and muffins cut into quarters plus limited seating inside as outside are the smoke areas. Again, for an overnight, which we did, it is an OK place but don't be looking for any more than average.

The hotel is very good located, kind attention. The room was not for two, full size bed and bath to small, almost no place for your clothes, the window it has not blackout, very noisy you wake up every morning with the garbage truck and the chat of the cleaning ladies, not on sunday.

The Delores was the first accomodation during our trip through Florida.
Reservation: We booked the stay with a 3rd party provider. Unfortunately, we messed up the dates and wanted to correct them immediately. Calling the hotel was not successful so we just booked another night with the provider and hoped for the best. At the arrival the staff was kind enough to allow us to keep our room during the whole stay.
Arrival: Tired from a long overseas flight we were glad that the bus took us directly from the airport to a station within a 5min walk from the hotel. The check-in was quick and efficient.
Room: You do not book this hotel for a nice view and that's fine. Everthing was pretty tidy, A/C didn't make any noise either. Although there was a lot of road and construction work going on right in front of the hotel, we did not hear a thing in our room.
Breakfast: The small breakfast buffet included a tray of different very delicious pastries, some juice and coffee.
Area: From the hotel you can access the shops, bars and restaurants of Washington Ave, Collins Ave & Ocean Drive within a few minutes on foot.
All in all, the Delores was a nice place to start off our stay in Florida with little extras but at a very reasonable price.

The room was very bad, especially for what you pay. My brother and I stayed here the end of March for 3 nights. I stayed in better hotel in 3rd world countries. The location is good, some friendly staff, after that, the room was bad. The room had holes in the wall, fixtures missing from the bathroom, no cot, (which I asked for). I would never stay here again. Don't let pictures fool you, this is like a hostel and getting a private room.

We stayed at the Delores for 1 night (June 17) with my wife and 11 year old son in a double queen suite which was ideal for our small family. Our room was room # 2 (first room on left when you enter hotel),which has a window facing the street with the front desk/lobby area just outside the door. It worked well for us and made for a good one nighter.
Two separate rooms with 1 bathroom(large shower) separating the rooms, both with (32"?) flat screen TVs w/Direct TV remotes, cool rock memorabilia on the bedroom walls( The WHO, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors,etc ), a safe, a kitchen area. We put our son in the back bedroom and discovered we could (temporarily) lock his bathroom door from inside and not worry he would walk in on us which afforded us some privacy. If you are travelling with 2 couples there is only one bathroom and you would have to pass through the front bedroom and bathroom to get to 2nd bedroom. So deal with it or pony up and get 2 separate rooms.

We loved the place. Beds were extremely comfortable, nice white linens which were very clean. Tile floor throughout unit and kitchen area, bathroom were recently updated ( granite counter top in small kitchen area with sink, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker). Yeah there were people hanging out til 3AM right outside our window in the front bedroom so I simply closed the blinds and kept my wife up later than usual. I couldn't sleep with noise after 1AM so figured if can't beat 'em join 'em, grabbed a cold drink from fridge, left my room, hung out in lobby for a bit, watched World Cup highlights, sat outside and checked out all the people walking by after leaving the clubs. What a scene...
We hit breakfast around 8 o'clock in the hallway/ corridor down from our room and coffee was great along with pastries, etc. It was fine.
Keep in mind that if you have a rental car there is NO FREE PARKING in SOBE, so be prepared to pay $20/day at nearest public parking garage 1 1/2blocks away ($1/hour up to 15 hours). The cheapest one is $16/day( 2 blocks away)but is usually full by afternoon check-in time.
I'd recommend the Delores to anyone visiting SOBE area, especially if you're budget-minded.

I had a great weekend here. The room was clean and nice although it was a little small. The staff was very friendly and willing to help you get what you want. When I checked in I did think that I had already paid for the resort fee in my payment online, so that was a little confusing.
