“Great place to stay by the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We stayed at this little hotel for a couple of nights and it was super clean, spacious with great beds. Fantastic location, close to the lively scenes, however our room was very quiet when we went to bed. Can't fault it really as it was a great choice and within our budget. They even provided beach towels which I thought it was a nice touch.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay there.

You get what you paid for. For our party of 4, 2 double beds, was just enough room to sleep. The Wifi was free and it had a small refrigerator and microwave. The only thing you could do was sit on the bed because the little plastic chair and table they provide was extra small, wobbly and shabby. We found ourselves on the strip more because we didn't want to stay in the room. I only allow room service to come in if I'm staying more than 4 days, other than that, I just keep the room straighten and change out the bath supplies with the housekeeper.
When asking for service, whether it be for requests for housekeeping or to check lost and found, the staff was not so eager to be helpful. Please speak a little Spanish, there are a lot of Spanish-speaking only staff. If you decide to stay at this place, tol-las de playas are beach towels and tol-las de banos are bath towels. That's all you need to know because that's all it seems they can pretty much help you with.
To be honest, do not stay on Miami Beach but stay near the airport or anywhere on the mainland and drive to the beach. The hotels are better along with free parking.The beach is the best thing about the place so don't get caught up in the hype. You're better off visiting Wynwood, the Wingstop, and Patacon Piseo.
I would not stay here again. To add more, Patty, the front desk clerk, acted like she didn't remember Mr. and I, when we just had a whole conversation the previous day. You are better off paying the expensive price for a 4-star or better hotel on Miami Beach or paying budget for hotels on the mainland. This type of place is more meant for college students.

Room Tip: This isn't the best place to stay based on value.

We stayed at this hotel over a layover when we got back from a cruise. This hotel is on the Strip and directly across the street from the beach. Great location! The room was large and clean. The bathroom was large and clean as well. The bed was very comfortable and had many firm pillows, which was a plus. The ceiling could use a better spakleing but other then that it was a nice room. There was a closet with ample space and a dresser which we did not utilize. I would recommend this hotel because it is in close proximity to everything and that is what matters the most.

Ignore all the negative reviews of this hotel. I love this place! It's a beautiful little hotel which is kept extremely clean. It comes with a fridge and microwave, free beach towels, and a closet that is bigger than the bathroom! For the price, you can't beat this, especially in South Beach! Contrary to many of the reviews this place is well kept and maintained and the wi-fi works incredibly well which was good considering I am Canadian and only had 200 MB of data on my roaming package. I also loved the bathroom, very nice! Now about the location...........absolutely the best!!!! Close to the best clubs, bars, restaurants, clothing and souvenir shops, and of coarse, the beach is only across the street! You definitely don't have to rent a car if you stay here which is good because there is no where to park or even stop in South Beach. It's also a quick 15 minute bus ride to downtown Miami on an express bus which can be caught two blocks over on Washington Ave. One thing that is true though is the poor soundproofing of the walls inside the hotel. You can hear a lot of things, but just wear ear plugs to bed, it works well to filter out any sounds. No big deal at all! Most people are staying at this hotel to party anyways and all the bars are open until 5 0r 6:00 am. Knowing this, if you want peace and quiet, this is not the place for you. Also this is not ideal for families with young children for obvious reasons. In conclusion, I am so glad I chose the Starlite. Awesome hotel!

It was a pleasant stay. I stayed at the hotel for a couple days and it was great. It had nice rooms, a friendly staff, good food, great bar and my favorite part is that it was rite across from the beach! I recommend it.

I stayed at the Starlite hotel April 16-20. I chose this hotel because of the location. I'm going to break this review in Pro's and Con's

Pro:
-location! It's directly next door to wet willies. And I never heard noise coming from there.

-the front desk staff were very friendly.

Con:
-The night before we were checking out my fiancé saw a roach in the bathroom; and then saw another the next morning. Thank goodness we were leaving.

-when we first entered the room there was a pubic hair in the bathroom on one of the towels

-the maid service was mediocre at best. They Didn't empty the garbage or remove food from our room for an entire day.

-There is no chain lock on the door or peep hole.

We definitely will not be returning to the Starlite Hotel

Very outdated hotel, our room had bugs on the walls and it is extremely noisy. You wont miss a thing going on in other rooms, sex, arguments, drug use, you name it.
Young wasted hotelguests smoking weed outside the hotel and the hotel was smelling from the drug use.
We booked a bus trip via the hotel to Orlando but nobody picked us up, and they admitted that they forgot to contact the company.
Would not stay there again unless really broke and traveling with a strong muscular man. Did not feel safe for a minute there.
