A friend and I stayed at the South Seas Hotel in Miami for a few nights. After the first night, we noticed a few bites on our feet. The second day, we searched the beds looking for the cause; we found several ants, larger than usual, in-between the box spring and the mattress as well as underneath the fitted sheet. We immediately contacted the staff, whose only response was “What do you want me to do about it?” Upon finally getting a supervisor to accompany us to the room, his response was to laugh at us and simply say, “Those aren’t bed bugs.” The staff was hesitant to give us another room and acted like it was an inconvenience to clean our room. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. For a few dollars more, you can get better service at a comparable hotel two doors down.
