Just to start off, I'm probably giving this place 5 stars because the night before I checked in I was staying at a terrible vacation rental with roaches and could not sleep. So just the fact that this place is clean made me overjoyed. Ok now the review: Very friendly staff and nice decor. There is a fenced in courtyard with a pool, tables, and a restaurant that has great breakfast. When you check in they give you a voucher for continental breakfast (7am-11am) which is a muffin and some yogurt, but for $4 more you can upgrade to the buffet which has pancakes, french toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, juices, bagels, toast, potatoes. It was all quite yummy and $4 is not bad at all. This courtyard is great for lounging and is very BYOB friendly. You are your group can have a nice spontaneous gathering here. The rooms are small but every south beach hotel has small rooms. The rooms are clean and bright. The TV worked fine. No fridge or microwave, but we knew that going in. Plenty of towels and maid service did a good job of replacing everything while we were out. The room is quiet at night. My only tiny complaint would be that the windows don't open so it can get quite humid in the room. The A/C worked fine and even though the sound was noticeable, it didn't bother us. The bed was very comfortable and there were extra blanket and pillow in the closet (we took the blanket to the beach). I'm not sure what the other rooms look like or if they have suites. The rooms size is good for 2 people only. No couch in the room. I would definitely stay here again. There are some very overpriced places on south beach, but I think this one is actually worth the money.
