We stayed in room 105 which was located just off the lobby. Did not really notice the noise from the street or lobby so perhaps the clientele was quieter than during the previous reviewer's stay. Room was actually an efficiency apartment with a sitting area and small kitchenette. Nice shower in the bath although lack of towel racks was a minor drawback.
Front desk is not staffed 24/7 but they were very attentive and helpful when there. Beach was just a short walk and we found several reasonably priced restaurants in the area. Not necessarily a prime location but we found it to be more relaxing than the alternative of having to deal with the hustle and bustle of South Beach all of the time. It was a $15-20 cab ride to get there when we wanted and we could avoid the crowds when we wanted to relax.
