“Good for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Not exactly in south beach,about a 45 minute walk to the happening areas for the adventurous walkers, but at least the beach was closeby. Appreciated the subway restaurant on the ground floor, reasonable prices considering the area. And the biggest plus is no extra resort fee which a vast majority force on you in SoBe for an unwanted cheap no-name liquor brand cocktail un-happy hour. I would definitely stay here again.

i found the Ocean Spray Beach Hotel online through cheaphotel.com.
i began reading the following reviews and then review the prices of the others further down on South Beach. i took a chance on this hotel, i must say if your a person that loves the peace, relaxation, reasonable price and feels like you own a private beach in walking distance, with friendly staff. then this is the place for you. i loved it. no regrets. it was simple, comfy, and easy to find. also a great location to the beach and can catch multiple buses to where you want to go. reasonable price means you can save more money to do more other things. i give it two thumbs up.

Room Tip: first, go to cheaphotel.com and purchase it within 3weeks before coming. you don't need a pool...

Great cafe and diner not far. Hot spots 3-5 blocks away. Tour office closes at four. Bus stops close by. We were on the fifth floor. The rooms looked clean. Bedding looked clean& new. There was a tv and a radio In each room. Beach is a short walk. The receptionist gave us the wrong room number. Either she is dyslexic or inept. Decent basic assistance but they didn't go out of their way to be social or helpful. Free wifi on ground floor. Old public computer available for free but too slow. Very nice patio with tables, chairs and big red umbrellas with the subway icon. Wifi free outside too. This hotel is great for vacationers who just want a room to sleep in. Vacationers who spend the day at the beach, Their nights out and just need a place to crash at night and take a decent shower in the morning. There is no pool or any reason to stay by the hotel unless you are just relaxing or having a sandwich. They do not have a ramp but they do have a lift for the disabled. But they do not offer it for luggage. So you have to carry your luggage up, one by one. They do have a water cooler in the lobby. That was nice. The lobby looked clean but the furniture was old, warn and needs replacing. Good rule of thumb, if the couches are ripped up, replace them. They do allow you to leave your luggage in the lobby by the desk or in the lift, but its not their fault if it rolls away. If They could install a cage or something for luggage storage with a lock, that would be a big plus. Due to allergies, when we booked we asked for a feather free room and asked if they could do a good cleaning due to my dust allergies. The room I stayed in seamed fresh. The other room seemed a bit stale and needed a good airing out. This is not a luxury hotel. There is no feathered bedding, no breakfast unless you count the subway and no thrills. The subway was great. Clean and fresh. Great customer service! Remember to bring subway coupons! Cafe not too far. Pricy but good. Ample seating outside. Dinner a walk or bus ride away. Good food, decent service. There are other hotels around with restaurants in them. There was no bad subway smell or loud noises from the other rooms. There are few sights and nothing to do but shop, walk around or go to the beach. There are no chain stores or malls near by. Overall it's good for singles and young families who are active and don't need or expect much from their hotel. My friends and I just needed a hotel for one night and were able to pay $50 a night. For us it was a fine choice.

Room Tip: There was construction going on behind the hotel when we stayed.

Avoid the highest floor- too loud (aircon)
Good rooms and bathrooms, old building with dirty window frames (windows were clean, though), just one block from famous Miami Beach (and a nice hotel bar/restaurant across the street)
Parking is a nightmare during the day (metered everywhere) so avoid bringing a car, even late it's hard to find parking
There are some small places to get food and two or three restaurants close by

The title says it all but while in Miami the other day the ocean spray tried to charge my credit card but I change the card numbers every 6 months. What happened is new managment would not allow me to drop my name and hold the room for me in good faith as old managment has done. So I called and let them know I would not be staying with them 14 days in adavance. The night I was in Miami the ocean spray called me to let me know they wanted to charge my account for not showing up and asked to give me my new number to charge me. SHAKEY!!!!!

Needed a place to stay last minute while in Miami Beach. Most hotels on hotels.com & other sites have hidden charges & multiple taxes. I'm not cheap but don't like trickery. I came across Ocean Spray Beach Hotel. I've stayed in Miami Beach many times, and I know unless it's 5 Star, most small hotels aren't worth it. Ocean Spray is in North Miami Beach (41st & Collins) Nice beach here and only about $10-$12 cab to South Beach. The hotel has been renovated. Staff was pleasant. The bed was (I think a memory foam) if not it was delightfully comfortable! I found room to be clean and ideal for my unexpected stay. The lobby hosts a Subway Sandwich shop in case you get hungry. I'd come back to the Ocean Spray Beach Hotel :)

I loved this trip mainly because I got engaged on this trip right across the street on the beach and she said yes! I will always remember that. It was cool they had a subway In the lobby and it always smelled like good sammiches lol so it was like you were forced to get something on the way in or out. Room was decent staff was nice overall a good trip
