“Nice location and cool atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Nice hotel but nothing exceptional. you paid for what you get.
Place for holiday makers, clear, large room but lousy breakfast.
Late cleaning of the room is somewhat an issue other travelers have as well reported
Is 3 minutes on foot from ocean drive and the beaches and a couple of block down collins avenue so overall a very good price/quality ratio.

Thank you for your feedback. The hotel will gladly accommodate any requests for early or late service once the housekeeping department is informed. We are located in the heart of South Beach and is within walking distance from the major hot spots. Come and visit with us soon.

Our room was not ready at the 3pm check in time. We were upgraded to a room in the front of the hotel. It was a nice room but awful location. It was so loud we didn't sleep for 2nights. Also, upon arrival the first hotel clerk was very rude but all others were pleasant.

Thank you for your review. We do have rooms located at the front of the hotel which are larger and have more amenities. However, they overlook Collins Avenue which can be a little noisy depending on the activities in South Beach at the time of your stay. With that said, South Beach is not known for being a quiet city. Most guests expect to go out and have a wild time. We also have rooms facing the courtyard. Please be sure to request one of those the next time you come to visit. Our front desk agents are shown all reviews including yours and corrective measures are always taken to ensure improvement.

I Recommend this place if you want a clean, reasonable place in a great area! The service was fantastic too. Breakfast served until about 945. Tons of nice places nearby to eat, club and beach. I went to the club mansion nearby and also the clevelander, two cool spots

Okay, so it's not the Ritz, but then it's not priced to be, reception staf were helpful and friendly, given that the first room I was allocated, still had people in it.. they pretty quickly got me another, room was clean, bed was a good size, furniture a little 90's, the air con a bit noisey, like an old chevy or something, but I had plenty of storage space and mini dressing room, the safe battery ran out, but the shower was hot as a turkish sauna, and everything was kept as clean as possible.
Continental breakfast OJ and Coffee and Muffins for on the run.
On business, so just doing 3 nights, don't need luxury and it's just me, central / clean / cheap.

Room Tip: Try and stay at the back - off Collins as it's busy, try and check out the Air Con for noise.. t...

I had an awesome stay at this hotel. There were a few days that we had to wait for extra towels and wash cloths, but the staff made the wait less painful. Great stay for the price! Excellent service. Overall I rate this hotel 4 out of 5 stars. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your feedback. Carnival Weekend is indeed a fun weekend at the hotel. Come and visit with us during our Ultrafest and Winter Music Conference Parties in March! Those are even better.

First I want to say the employees did the best they could considering the situation. I applaud everyone who worked there during my stay but the owners of this hotel needs a reality check. The room was small ok I can deal with that, but when you have women coming to south beach to party and hang out we need 1. mirrors in the room and 2. wash cloths, towels to bathe with. If you decide to stay here make sure you bring your own items to bathe with. Trying to get a wash cloth and towel was horrible. The bathroom mirror was so close to the ceiling I had to climb on the toilet seat just to apply my lipstick. The lighting was terrible I felt like we were in the bat cave. Good location but the room needs major updating. Dont stay here if you plan on spending a long period of time in the room.
