“Great location but that's about it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

To be fair we were travelling on a budget and this hotel fitted what we were looking for. A central location on the beachfront. Bar as you walk in which smells horrendous. Our room faced a wall and bathroom unclean and tiny. Staff helpful. Dodgy lift!

We stayed one night in miami, at starlite hotel. Very good location I admit.
Otherwise, we found cockroaches in the room, nasty mould around the shower. Tiny room (we had #111) located right in front of the storage room. We appreciated not hearing the loud music from the bars, but we got awaken by trash trucks. Our view from the room was the garbage, employees smoking in the back street. "Kitchenette" with doors that don't close properly. Oh and dont forget to add 22$ to parking valet.
We are not fancy customers but this is limit to insalubrity.

While I was reading comments, yes I was a little afraid to stay here, however this was within our budget, I even brought my own sheets. Needless to say, I didn’t have to use my sheets. The place was very clean-even smelled like Clorox. I would recommend if you are on a budget this is a great place to stay. I would defiantly stay here again due to low cost. The staff was really friendly as well.

Really good value in SoBe! The rooms were just ok and it's great for if you don't want to spend too much time in your room. It's right in the middle of the action on ocean road and south beach is directly across the road. Restaurants line the street so you have many options. Shops are one street down and all nightclubs about a 5-10 minute walk!

Only thing that was abit dodgy was that they don't have storage rooms when u leave your luggage at reception after checking out. They just like the hallways with them.

Small room and tiny bathroom with a bad bed and street light making it seem like a gloomy day all night long made the Starlite a bad choice. The surly check-in person was a preview of the room experience. The location is the only thing the Starlite has going for it. Parking is a pain there so hunt up one of the garages first thing.

We were a bit hesitant checking in since we knew the lobby was razor thin, and it was, but when were notified that we had been upgraded to front beach-view room we were feeling pretty upbeat..and it continued when we saw the big twin corner windows looking out to the beach & activities! And, the room was very large..with 9 feet of extra room at foot of bed so to move around..plus a sofa/2 chairs, small fridge, nice double sliding door closet with upper shelf..and the rest room was updated with nice Italian-looking marble tile (ceiling too). Oh, had hot water on demand..nicest car parking service attendant out front..and plenty of nearby sidewalk cafes to dine morning or night. We were attending the Clemson/Ohio St Orange Bowl Game 12 miles away, and it was easy to get car & return it in AM to lobby staff. A surprise..and the best price we found in that two block area due to Holiday period.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach front room on 2 or 3rd floor..and don't worry about the Wet Willie's next do...
