“great location + modern & clean rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

I (24) stayed at this hotel for 6 nights with a friend (23). Here are our findings and recommendations:

Room:
The room was rather small, BUT as you are only in your room to sleep and take a shower, this is not a problem!! The shower is great and the room is very clean with nice floors. The bed was very comfortable, though rather short. This was not a problem for us, but if you are a tall man, the bed may be a little too short. There was also a tv and a fridge etc. Overall, a modern and cleam room!

Hotel: The location of the hotel was perfect ! It's very central, right in the middle of ocean drive. You just have to cross the street to get to the beach and there are so many restaurants nearby! We had a room on the 3rd floor, facing another building (not the street side), so we didn't had noise problems. They do, however, provide earplugs. The staff at the front desk was very friendly.

Overall, choose this hotel if you go to south beach, cause everything (restaurants, beach, shops, ...) is in walking distance!! I think this hotel is perfect for couples (young and old) and friends.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the 3rd floor, not facing the street !

Dear Caroline,

Is great hearing you liked us that much, you know since you left we were waiting you or any one close to you to be back.
Regarding to the size of the rooms, rather than small I would say compact, but as every hotel here in Ocean Drive, and the reason is not other than all this hotels were built in the 30' and the city regulation doesn't allow to touch the structure of this buildings as far as all of them are protected for belonging to the Deco days, but don't tell me that you did not like our hotel the way it was decorated
Thanks again Carlonie for staying with us and any time you want will be here for you

I would not recommend this hotel as it was very laud with no sound proof between the walls. We could not sleep for 2 nights that we stayed there because of the noises in the corridor and from the people upstairs. It felt like the room had no walls and you could hear anything other people do and say in their rooms.
When we arrived to our room there was still sand on the floor from the previous guests which means that these rooms don’t get cleaned properly. The bed was very squeaky and old – it’s seen better days. On top of all this as we were leaving our room one day we saw a cockroach trying to get to our room from the corridor.
All in all unless you need a room to crash after crazy night where you would not notice or care about all these things, I would not recommend this hotel.

Dear Anna

As you see I´m responding to your comment as soon as it arrived, I can understand and accept any comment about our hotel, there are lots of guest that pass by and everyone has his own way of experiencing the same situation, but when it comes to the cleaness issue is something that is needed to be treated inmediatly. I apologise if you found sand in your room, and I would please if you dont mind tell me in wich room were you and the dates, then I can track who was incharge of that room, and find out what happened, for this porpouse Im leaving you my private mail frcasaux@gmail.com.
Regarding to the noise issue, our windows are double sound proof, and the walls between the room have of course the sound proof chamber, but still I understand you, its true that this days have been a bit loud sometimes, we are in the middle of spring break and that means this part of the city get to sleep a bit late, and although we have a special person during this days trying to keep the spring break partyers low some times for what you say the result is not what everyboby spects.
Sorry for this incovinient, and believe me that every time we dont achive to make feel everyone willing to come back, is a huge failure

For the past three years we have traveled to Miami and stayed at the Room Mate Waldrof. We would never stay anywhere else. The room (s) are super clean, decorated nice. The location is incredible, located right on the beach and in walking distance of several great eateries and boutiques. The staff is super friendly and couldn't ask for a more helpful manager. Lazaro assisted with all of our needs regardless of how small. Looking forward to our next vacay. Thank you for providing outstanding service Laurence Hurling & Tangela Smith

Just came back from a trip there this week for 3 days. This hotel was in the perfect location right across the street from the beach, along with being walking distance from Collins, Lincoln, and Washington. Once we dropped off the car the first day we didn't have to use it until the car ride home (Valet was $25 a night, which was very reasonable compared to other places). Room was great and I was very impressed by how perfectly clean the room was! One down side was our room was right behind the elevator and we could hear it going up and down all night. They provided ear plugs, but next time I would ask to be moved into a room further away. I'd definitely stay there the next time I'm down in Miami.

Room Tip: Try not to get the room behind the elevator, you'll end up hearing it all night long.

Visited Miami on a 3D/2N trip while transiting to Santiago de Chile. Chose to stay at this amazing property right at Ocean Drive and next to famous clubs like Mango's and Clevelanders. The room I was staying at (101) was right across the road from Mango's. There's no restaurant at the hotel but then it's SoBe. PrimeTime does the job well and is like the hotel' sown restaurant. You even get a discount if you're staying at the hotel. Extremely courteous staff. Would specially like to mention Juan Carlos who did all he could to make my stay comfortable.

Nice decoration for honeymoon :)
Nice beach infront of the Beach. Our wedding was there and was beautiful. So for it we got a ocean view room. There were not any swimming pool, we could try, unfortunatelly. I think this is only bad thing at the hotel.

I am very happy that you choose our hotel to celebrate such an important event in your life like a honeymoon. I will communicate with my staff about what a amazing time you had here in Miami, and in our hotel. I also would like a pool in hotel, but maybe in the future we can have one. We hope to have you here with us on your next vacation to Miami .
