“BEST LOCATION”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

This was my first time in south beach, Starlite is no 5 star but it was clean, beds were comfortable and very affordable for South Beach. We had a room at the front of the hotel. Room 302 had the best view of the beach and the strip on Ocean Dr. Front desk reception were friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the water pressure in the shower was very weak. I would definitely stay here again. FYI if you dont want to break the bank when eating out do not eat any where on ocean drive its way over priced and the food is not even worth it. collins and washington st have more affordable places to eat only a short walking distance away.

We place was in a great location for taking part in South Beach activities. We were also upgraded in our room at no extra cost which was an added bonus. The only downfall is that it can be noisy at night. We were located at the front of the building so the noise from all the bars could be heard from our room. The staff was friendly and were able to buy discounted tickets for attractions at this hotel. The rooms were clean. I can sleep through noise so it was not a problem for me but my wife had trouble sleeping. It is close to the beaches, bars/restaurants and tourist shops. It is quiet in the daytime... so if you are a night owl, this would be a perfect place to stay... :)

My friend and I decided to have lunch at this place after being told we could get 20% off the total bill. I ordered a diet coke and received a cocktail sized glass of diet coke. I didn't think much of it because we were staying on Miami Beach, where everything is served in cocktail glasses. We ordered our food, after staring down our waiter and trying to get his attention away from his mobile phone and on to us, and after about a half hour wait our meals came. The food came out by another waiter from the hotel next door, and it was very oily for a wrap! The diet coke I had ordered did not taste as it should, so I didn't drink it. It was as though the soda and the syrup had not been mixed through properly. When we finished eating our meals (although most of it was left on the plate!) we again had to get our waiters' attention away from his mobile phone. We received the cheque and noticed that they had not taken the 20% off that they had promised. Upon further examination I also noticed that they had charged $12 for the diet coke, which did not taste like diet coke! I spoke to the lady about the 20% off and she got the waiter to change that straight away, however the waiter did not like to do so. I also wanted to get the $12 diet coke taken off cheque because I did not believe I had drunk enough of it to warrant me paying for something that was not what I expected. The waiter did not take this complaint very well. He was rude, arrogant and wouldn't listen to what I was saying. He refused to take off the diet coke, and stood over us, waiting for us to pay. He also declared that he wouldn't take off gratuity, tips or anything else from the cheque, which I thought was completely unreasonable, seeing as most of the time he didn't do his job anyway!

South Beach Miami is not somewhere that I'd rush back to. If you are English think a cross between Skegness and Blackpool but with sunshine! Hotel was OK I guess but rooms were small and cramped, bathroom was tiny and in need of updating. The shower issued forth a dribble that was just about enough to shower under but not pleasant. When we arrived the room smelled very strongly of bleach. Location is good in the middle of everything but product is definately budget although the price is not. To be fair the receptionist was pleasant and helpful, so overal location good but product dated and not that cheap either.

We needed an affordable place to stay for two nights ON ocean drive.

No this isn't a 5 star hotel but it was clean and the bed was fine.

Small bathroom but that would be my only complaint... (Well the headboard hit the wall too much but that's another story lol) . The air conditioner worked, the tv worked, their was a fridge in the room and a body length mirror. That's all I need when I'm in SoBe. We weren't really in the room much except to sleep, shower and get dressed. The desk clerk was nice (too bad i can't remember her name)

Great location.

If you want to live la vida loca de Miami, you won't be asking for more. A few steps away from the beach and the busy SoBe Avenues, this basic hotel offers you comfortable and convenient accommodation in the heart of the city. The rooms are spacious and so are the bathrooms, equipped with a microwave and a fridge.
Highly recommended to travelers on a budget (what's budget in Miami anyway? ;-) and families and groups of friends who are not looking for frills.

This was my second time staying at this hotel. the price is always much less then the colony and Avalon art deco hotels that are located beside the statlite. the staff was great again on this trip, always helpful and rooms were cleaned daily no matter what time we left for the day. the location is amazing. walk right onto the always busy ocean ave and head right to the beach. ppl who have reviewed this hotel negatively must have been expecting a Hilton with a huge business center and fitness room- news flash, all of the art deco hotels on ocean are old! but the starlite has done a great job of updating with modern furniture and finishes without erasing the art deco feel. can't say enough amazing things about this place!!
