This is a great value hotel in a superb location to explore South Beach. Check in was stress free even though we hadn't booked in advance. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful, especially Joel.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2016

If you like more people around go the partner hotel around the corner, the Cleveland hotel. Here, you'll find a rooftop par with a view across the ocean and the Ocean Drive.... More

We were lucky to be given upgrade to a suite which was fabulous. We cannot fault any of the staff on reception. Always given beach towels daily, as much... More

The bathroom was clean and equipped with a hair dryer, soup and shampoo. We didn't use the adjacent sports bar area or ESPN Sports Studio, but they... More

Brown stains around the toilets and shower walls. Old carpet, small rooms. And old toilets. You can smell meldew the second you walked in the rooms..we booked 4 rooms and 3 had to be upgraded. They claim nothing else was available. Only stay in suites at this hotel/motel
