“"DO NOT STAY" ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile

Once you enter the hotel the smell of a subway cafe is the first thing you see as you enter the lobby. The entrance area is very basic (PLAIN) . I called over the phone to confirm my reservation. The person was" BEYOND RUDE". When I checked in someone else took care of me she was friendly and (not very helpful) . There is no parking at the hotel no valet parking. The parking garage is $45 dollars per day. There is also a public parking lot , if you find a spot it's over $20 . Alternatively you search the streets for a space which is $3 per hour 3 hour max, so you need to keep feeding the meter.

The room is BASIC . NO THERMOSTAT you can not control your own Air conditioning FYI there's no HEATER as per the front desk. It happens to be very cold tonight the solution (a blanket)Really?!?!? Gets better There is a lot of noise as the windows are very old standard with no soundproofing. The walls are thin so you pick up noise from the adjacent bedroom you can clearly hear toilets flushing and water running.
The room was supplied with a safe, but half the numbers did not work.

The room was not very dark as the curtains were short and did not meet properly at the middle, so let in light from the street. They were missing another part of the curtain.

I do not recommend to stay here I. Having surgery and my DR is in the area this ISN'T the right place to feel at home.


The lie about having FREE WIFI ita available at a cost of around 11 dollars for 24 hours.

2 Stars rating in my opinion overpriced for a hotel that everything is far from it accept the beach.. Not worth it!!!!!!

I slept maybe 5 hours my entire stay at this hotel the reason why is because this hotel is in an ideal location perfect and cheap my two favorite things I spent most of my time either on the patio or on the beach which is across the street if you are from Miami and just need a break and don't want to spend a lot of money this is the perfect spot , also if you are trying to vacation and save this spot is for you.

Ocean Spray is located a block from the beach aprox. 20-30 mins walk from SouthBeach (Collins ave and 41st Street) Older Art Deco building with ok rooms.
Breakfast is at Subway next to the lobby. You get a egg and cheese 1/2 sub for US$ 3,-
Nice staff, parking in public garage (5 min walk) and older elevator.

This hotel is nothing special but if you're traveling on a budget the price is great. We stayed for 3 nights right after New Years and it was hard to find a hotel close to South Beach at a decent price.

Some noise from the hallway and from neighbouring rooms.... but you don't check in here to spend more time in your room than you have too:-)

I had a great stay here. If you are looking for a great place to stay by the beach, on the cheap. Get a room here! TV worked boom box works had a fridge and bathroom
Was in order. Nice view of the street with palm trees swaying. Don't go to the boardwalk after dark or u are at risk but enjoy a close walk to the beautiful beach and boardwalk is great during the day. Close walk to convenience stores liquor stores Walgreens etc. subway and snack machine. Use the stairway to get to upstairs if you aren't too lazy! Comfy bed, staff at desk, subway, and room service were very cool. 100 dollar deposit due at check in. Taxi is good just hail one don't bother calling them Unless it is early über is best of you have a smartphone. I would give them
5 stars but I think it's not THAT great but it is perfect for a nice get away!

For an older, Art Deco Hotel, about a blocks walk to the beach - this wasn't a bad place to stay!
Plain and simple, and it was clean! Beds were comfy. Coffee maker in room, mini fridge, flat screen TV, mini safe, hair dryer & even had a portable stereo! And for Miami it was the most reasonably priced. And it even has an actual "Subway" Sandwich shop in the lobby!
When you walk in, you smell the delicious smell of bread baking.
Parking is a bit of an inconvenience as most places are. It's about a four block walk away. $8 a day.
We were gearing up for a cruise - if your budget is tight - this is a good place to stay for the money. Miami hotels are not cheap, (in Winter) so this was the most reasonable place we could find that was clean and had a fairly good location.

Hotel is old, but it's not big issue. It's horribly maintained: rooms, linen, lobby, etc. "Subway" cafe in the lobby generates "great " smell in the property. Worth $50/night even at Miami Beach location.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel from December 20th through December 25th. The impression about the hotel was not good. The staff was kind of rude. It took me forever to check in. Their credit card device didn't work so I had to withdraw cash in the ATM standing near the reception. I am now curious if it's done with a purpose. The room was very noisy because of the AC working on the roof very loud. We got a room on the 7th floor (the last one). The view from the room was great! We could see a part of the ocean and the Collins Ave. The carpet in the room was old and teared apart in some places. The flush in the bathroom didn't work so I had to call the reception to fix the problem. The TV was old and din't work properly. No parking, of course. The closest parking garage was about 5-7 minutes from the hotel on Royal Ave/ Sheridan Ave and 42d St. No free breakfast. The hotel has Subway on first floor so you can order a sandwich. But because of the Subway, the smell wasn't great near the reception. The only good thing is the location. It take about 2 minutes to get to the beach which was nice.
