“Great location, big room, awful front desk guy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Location of hotel was excellent and the rooms were good. 1 block away from nice restaurants and beach. It is a bit older and there was construction close by so first impressions were not great. The size of the room and comfort of beds were nice so it is a great value. What dropped the rating was the first guy we met from the hotel.

The front desk guy in the afternoon was awful. We had 3 families traveling with us and they all had similar experiences. We were the 3rd family to arrive but the 1st 2 families warned us about him before we got there and they were right. He was rude and very unhelpful. He looked like he did not want to be there and resented the fact that he had to do some work when we arrived. It was so bad that if we saw that guy working and had a question we actually went to another hotel to ask our question. On the other hand, the girl working in the morning was helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Try to get top floor if possible. We were on bottom floor and we heard the people above us walking...

Dear Eric, thank you for the honest review - I am very disappointed reading your comments about the front desk in the evening hours, typically our most often praised quality is the staff and it's attentive nature so this is surprising to the least, but we appreciate your feedback! I will be using this review as a training tool for the next meeting with our staff so that I can point out the inconsistencies on our end with hopes that we will improve in the near future.

Enjoyed our time in Sobe and loved the attention we received from the staff there (Rosie in particular). The valet service was great and reasonably priced for the area ($20 a day with in/out). The room was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were also very comfortable. My only knock was the noisy A/C unit in the room (it was hot and humid so turning it off was not an option). If they figure out this out then it's a five rating for me.

Dear Guest, thank you for the wonderful review! If you could email me at sales@thekenthotel.com and tell me which room you stayed in we'll have that A/C checked out and fixed in no time! I assume it's just father time letting us know that we need to change that unit, but this is a simple fix, so if you could let us know it would be very much appreciated!

We were on holiday in Orlando and wanted to visit Miami....after spending night after night on the Internet looking for accommodation that would suit a family of three adults and four children,we came across these.
We booked a one night stay there,giving us two days to visit and do the tours.
We arrived before book in time and the staff went out their way to help ,storing our bags,letting us use the facilities to freshen up and then sort out parking for our hired car.
Rooms were bigger than we expected,clean and with a safe,fridge,small but enough kitchen area,ample storage space ...we had won a coconut with this choice.
Area was ideal for what we wanted to do.....visit Miami Ink( street behind us) .....visit Dash -the Khardasian shop ( street behind us) ..and with kids in the party ,a visit to the beach was a street the other way in front of this place...
Excellent location .
Thanks for all your help.
A great place that we as a family ,would happily recommend

Most of the staff was very helpful & pleasant. The room & beds were clean. There was plenty of room, however no place to store your clothes. you had to leave them in the suitcase. For that reason, they should have 2 suitcase stands, when 2 people are staying.There was some mold around the bathroom window in the shower. Overall I would def recommend this place!

Thank you Karen for the great review - we have come across guests in the past who have requested more storage options/space in their rooms, we are currently working on finding the most efficient furniture that we could to add to the room to help solve this problem, I expect this to no longer be an issue in the very near future! Once again, thank you for your feedback!

I would say average to very good .The staff was friendly, the room was clean, it was like a studio apartment. the extras you got from SOSB were:
Quiet area yet close to everything!
You could walk to post office, shops, and the beach,
Subway was right next store, the room came with a refrigerator and freezer! that was a bonus on the hot Miami nights.
I think its a great choice for the price, I have stayed at 10 or so different places on SB so check my other reviews. the only thing negative was one morning there was a lot of moving furniture or something going on above us, guests? housekeeping? and there was construction next store, but that is not this hotels fault. CONS: no fitness center or pool some people don't use those anyway

This place is perfect ! The location is a stones throw away from Ocean Drive & right in the heart of Collins Ave. The rooms are just like they are in the pictures (i had room 15) & they are clean, tidy & very well priced. Staff & service was excellent. Cannot recommend it enough & will be staying here again in May 2014 !
