“TOP OF THE LINE ON OCEAN DRIVE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

i just finished another great week in south beach. I always book my trip at the Bentley because of the service and cleanliness of the property. Carlos at the front is always there to attend to any extra needs of myself and my guests. The property is located in the most prime location of the beach as well. i have stayed in about 10 different rooms in the hotel throughout all my miami trips and they are always very clean and well maintained. A top choice for me every time...

We have stayed at the Bentley twice now (early December 2011 & 2012). Both times have been perfect. The location is excellent and the hotel and rooms are bright, clean and well maintained. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. The Front Desk Manager Carlos especially was very pleasant and attentive to any of our questions or requests. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 400 or 500 are the best. Lots of room, quiet and a great view of Collins Park, the beach and t...

The Bentley Hotel was the perfect place to stay on Miami Beach for my son and me. We stayed 2 nights December 15/16 2012. We had a King Suite with an ocean view. Room was large had a comfortable bed, nice linens, decent Kitchen(which could use some ice trays) nice sitting room with a great view of ocean drive and the Atlantic. Great location right on ocean drive. Saturday night was a little noisy on the street late but what would you expect for a South Beach hotel. Access to beach chairs and towels at the Hilton Bentley down the street a few blocks. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Price was right for a room right on the beach! Definitely not a luxury hotel some of the hallways and decor could use updating. The Pool deck was great although we didn't spend any time there.

I will definitely come back and stay again.

We stayed at Bentley for our 1st Anniversary and this place didn't disappoint us. The location of this hotel is just great....right on the south beach as this is where all the fun lies. The suite was clean and the hotel is nicely decorated with antiques....The person in service gave us some free entry coupons which made our day. Bentley is associated to Hilton so we could on Hilton's private beach also...which was a great experience.

Clean, cool, quality service. Close to pretty much everything on South Beach yet the rooms are quiet and secluded from the chaos outside. If we are ever back in Miami, we'll be choosing The Bentley again for sure.

The suite we stayed in was very pleasant. A cosy loungeroom with a kitchen and a separate bedroom and two TVs. Very nicely decorated and the bathroom was beautiful with a bidet as well as a toilet and shower. There were a few negatives - the shower had very little water pressure which is very annoying. The corridors to get to the room were extremely shabby and need fixing very badly. The location of the hotel was also very testing - hustlers all trying to get you to eat in their restaurant. But the art deco buildings in the area are interesting.Continental breakfast was included. Overall quite expensive for what you get but very pleasant place to stay in the trendy South Beach

From begining to end, we had to hassle with the manager, who is very polite and accomodating, but the hotel is so poorly managed. First of all we reserved an ocean view w/terrace and got a small, dark oceanview, no terrace. Since we checked in late, I didin't realize the discrepency until the next morning. I called the manager who apologized and seemed surprised that no one explained why when we checked in. Aparently the owner of the terrace unit we were supposed to get decided to sell it. Yeah, right...
He did give us a choice of other rooms and we selected a larger, lighter one bedroom. Still no terrace. The did reduce the rate however.
It took almost 35 minutes for the valet to get our car. Again I had to go see the manager and he called them. I told him to remove valet from our bill and we ended up putting the car in a self-park a half block south. Worked just fine that way!
When the bill came, the valet charges were on it, as well a double billing of resort and other taxes, which my husband caught and had them take off. The muttered something about the computer being the problem with that.
And the 25% off breakfast at the restaurant downstairs is a joke. It's only on certain items. Still cost us over $30 every morning.
There is no fitness room. The rooms are run down and I swear we got a double bed...not even a queen. You can do much better!!

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!

Dear Guest, please accept my apologies for your recent issue during your stay with us. As a condominium hotel, we try to accommodate our guests to have the most pleasant experience at the Bentley. Unfortunately, we are in a high traffic area of South Beach, but that is only because we are located in the busiest and trendiest location in South Beach. We recently upgraded to continental breakfast served on the 2nd floor as well as the unlimited Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, we do not have a Fitness center however we have a special package with Mali gym located 2 blocks away from the hotel. I hope that you were able to take advantage of our rooftop pool and our beach access. Once again, please accept my apologies and we hope you give us another opportunity next time you plan to visit Miami Beach.
