This place is very nice. They don't kill you on the price and they give you everything you could want. Great staff!!! Isaiah and Lorenzo are the best guys on the beach!!! They take great care of you! Amazing trip!!! I have stayed at more luxurious places but not as good.

The room are literally cement prison cells. Floor and walls are concrete. The bed although it looks like it is a bed also resembled concrete. Terrible night sleeping. also odd permanent stains in the corners of the room., perhaps from too drunk guests of the past marking their territory. We had a junior suite with an ocean view. The ocean view you had to contort to see. Silly silly prison. Never again. Could hear below and above us at all times because sound seriously carries there. My fiancée on the other hand felt it was awesome and is planning his next visit. Clearly this was due to the pool scene that was never shy of skin. If you we're hoping to see a derrière implant in person reserve now. This is a "boys weekend" hotel. The food however was delicious and the service was great but the gym was surprisingly small.

Dear "Jenkr,"

I'm sorry you felt this way about Shore Club and had such strong views about the design of our rooms. They are modern and minimalistic with a Mexican sandstone on the floor. We apologize this was not your taste but so many guests love this look. As far as your comment on our pool scene never being "shy of skin" and having derriere implants... Miami is one of the sexiest cities in the world and if this made you feel uncomfortable having your fiancé checking the scene out, then maybe you should travel to a more conservative city together next time!

Kind Regards,
Dorothy Jean "DJ"

What a great hotel.
We arrived in Miami and our great experience started from the moment we were dropped off at the hotel. The hotel concierge was full of information. Knew everything was to know about Miami.
The checkin was super quick. The staff were very knowledgable and were so pleasant.
We left our luggage at the desk and it arrived at our rooms very quickly.
The rooms were spectacular. Clean and neat. Extremely comfortable beds and pillows. A beautiful big bathroom with top of the line products.
Hotel also had its own bar, two pools, cabanas, pool beds and access to the beach.
It's great proximity to Lincoln mall was fabulous and it was only a short cab ride to the main strip of clubs.
I would absolutely recommend the shore club to every person I knew was travelling to Miami.
Well done.

Arrived at hotel, told admission staff it was our anniversary & we were upgraded. Just got better from there. All hotel staff so helpful & friendly - couldn't do enough to make our stay a comfortable one. Access to beach was just outside hotel, short walk to beautiful restaurants, bars & shopping - not much further to see where all the ships left the harbour - a favourite pastime of ours. Free bike hire if you don't like walking too far. Only downfall is that the pool was a bit too warm & very crowded & noisy over the weekend. Couldn't recommend the Shore Club highly enough & if we ever went back would definitely stay there again. Very glad we didn't stay at Art Deco precinct about 500metres away, no balconies at hotels & very noisy at night - definitely designed for young, single people, although some great places to eat during the day

Let me start my review by saying that I am a little gun shy about hotels in Miami because I lived there for a number of years and had bad luck with hotels I referred people to and then had bad luck after I moved and started traveling to Miami - the complaints were generally along the same lines: small rooms, rude service, dirty hotel. I was pleasantly proved wrong by the Shore Club - the staff was uniformly polite, our room was exactly as promised and actually large enough for two adults and the common areas were well maintained. The hotel seems to have a bit of a split personality - inside the lobby and the first outdoor area were very peaceful but when you get to the pool the volume goes UP - it is not a pool to relax and catch up and all of the Jane Austen you wanted to reread. I was intrigued by my fellow guests - at breakfast it was business people and families (BTW, breakfast buffet was very good), the closer we got to happy hour I didn't see any strollers or business attire but lots of skin but everyone seemed to coexist. Overall very nice stay.

Overall, I had a great weekend at the Shore Club that was sponsored by a business event. I thoroughly enjoyed the location, the bath like temperature of the pool, and the poolside music. I found the hotel layout to be confusing and VERY poorly marked, but outside of that, have no real complaints.

The Good:
-Very friendly staff
-Amazing location
-Miami chic feel to the whole property
-Good sized rooms with comfortable beds

The OK:
-Hotel layout is confusing and somewhat strange. I had to walk through a restaurant with all my luggage to get to my room in the middle of dinner. There should be another way to do this.
-Signage does not help the hotel layout. They really need to install more signage to make things easier to find!
-Bellman did not greet or help me when I arrived, but may have just been a timing issue, as they were great upon departure

Overall, if you are looking for a fun, energetic South Beach place to stay, this one definitely fits the bill, and I would recommend. If you want low key and secluded, best to choose somewhere else!

Room Tip: Avoid the North Tower if possible, as you have to walk through a restaurant/bar to get to the elevat...

Well we appreciate your honest feedback both good and bad! We do have a friendly, genuine staff in an amazing location with comfortable beds and a chic feel to it :) The Morgans Hotel Group is known for not placing big signage throughout the hotel as part of our decor. We apologize that the bellman was not able to assist you as you were arriving... this is definitely not the norm. Please let me know the next time you will be heading down to Shore Club and I would love to meet you!

My boyfriend and I spent four days at the Shore Club and our stay was just perfect. The location is great, the garden beautiful, the pools impressive and the beach with private chairs right outside the hotel. The staff is really nice, especially the two beach managers Tony and Isaih who are very helpful and friendly.
We will certainly come back!
