A little quirky and off the beaten path. The carpet on the stairs could stand to be replaced. We were moved from our first room because the fridge did not work which apparently had gone unnoticed for a bit because there was mildew in it as well. In the second room, there was an alternate cable access that did not... More

I stayed a few days here while on vacation. I found the staff to be very courteous, knowledgeable about the surrounding area, places to visit, and willing to go out of their way to ensure my stay was enjoyable and comfortable! Thanks to Mai and all the staff at the Daddy-o I had an awesome stay!

Visited here for 3 days before a cruise. Have obviously been advised wrongly t come here as it's nowhere near the tourist area in Miami ( $45 in a cab each way ). The first room we were offered was not that clean and the carpet and the chair so badly stained we refused to stay. After seeing 3 other... More

Such a cute hotel with bright colors and friendly staff. I found this place very last minute while looking for a hotel near the beach. I like to stay in South Beach but hate the crowds. Check-in was a breeze. Breakfast was included and we woke up right in time to enjoy it. The rooms are very clean which I... More

This is an awesome property and Hana was such a wonderful person. Five Stars all around. 24 Hour coffee, breakfast, good food all around and the area is great. Everyone from management to Hana and other front desk personnel and house staff are top notch and so friendly.

We went to spend Halloween, it's definitely the best place to go to, the hotel succeeded our expectations, the customer service from the staff was amazing, i love the fact that it is in walking distance to Balharbour, and to the beach.

Initially it looks great, but beneath the 'boutique' styling it's not as good as you'd hope. The aircon in the room is very noisy, the carpet clearly needs a good shampooing and the wi-fi is next to useless. The laundry services don't exist ( despite being listed on the details on Hotels.com ) either. The staff are friendly enough and... More

I regret having to say it, but the Daddy O has gone into a housekeeping tailspin. I was there for three nights over Labor Day weekend. Every single day, we were short towels, there was sloppy or poor cleaning, and the electronic keys kept failing. The front desk tried very hard to keep us happy, but after five years of... More

Compared to other 5 star accommodations I have visited, this is not 5 stars, but definitely a 4+. I was visiting the area to get my child moved into Barry University, and I would absolutely recommend this if you are visiting the University.

We stayed here for two nights, asked for a quiet room, and happily got one. Overall this is a lovely hotel. It's modern, the staff is friendly and it is in a great location.
