Considering we wanted to stay on South Beach and right near Lincoln Road – this was definitely the place to be - walking distance to the beach and shops. The hotel is pretty small but compared with the prices for other hotels on South Beach – this one suited us best for cost.
When you first walk into the reception area you are greeted by a fresh smell and nice little layout. We went to our room and it was very very small – we booked a standard double room and 3 girls shared and we both had 2 suitcases each so it was very squashy but manageable. The bathroom was tiny and no space whatsoever to place your beauty products. We just had to make do with what we had considering the great location.
Some faults - the toilet was always blocked!! we had to call someone to fix it. The TV would switch off and disconnect. The power would go out when we were using too many electrical appliances - ie. hairdryer and iron. Smells old and the hallways have carpet that looks 50 years old! But all in all - you need to think of location and it is liveable so the good and bad outweigh each other!
Breakfast was actually pretty good – big selection of cold meats, fruit, eggs, toast and spreads – it was nice to wake up in the morning, grab some breakfast and head out to the pool area. The beach is accessed through a door past the pool, cross over the boardwalk and then you are on the beach – nice and easy! I would recommend this hotel if you want something right in the heart of South Beach.
