I ended up just staying here because of the slightly lower price I was able to get for a hotel right on South Beach. It's in a great location, right near Lincoln Road on Collins.
It's a pretty lowkey hotel; feels almost like a motel. The lobby is nice, nothing special. Checkin and everything was fine. The hallways however were probably the most offputting part of my stay at South Seas. Old dirty carpet and just felt like a dingy motel. The room however was totally fine; nice and clean.
The best part of the hotel was really the pool area; I guess you're really not going to be spending a ton of time staying inside in your room. The pool area was well kept and almost felt like a different hotel. There was an area a bit further back with hammocks, and direct access to the boardwalk and beach behind it. Complimentary continental breakfast was nice and good.
