My second year staying at The Park Central. Location on Ocean Drive is great, staff is wonderful. Nice to have the breakfast buffet in the morning, but it would be nice to have some variety in the breakfast options (eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes) from time to time. Also nice to have a beach chair in the room to carry to... More

Should be the manager. I found toenails in the floor the first night. I took them to front desk. Also the ice tongs are so disgusting,... More

I stayed here in October, last year. I was there for vacation, and I didn't find me bad. The room was clean and enough large, the ambient was really good. The personnel was kind, and most helpful, multi-language personnel (not only English and Spanish). I suggest this hotel, the price was right for the quality offered.

I was part of a corporate group 2 night stay at this hotel last September and had one of the most horrible & unfortunate hotel stays in my entire life- and that is inclusive of zero star hotels in third-world countries. I could really write ten pages on what went wrong here, but it just comes from poor management. The... More

This hotel is great! It's reasonable priced and the location is excellent! Take no notice of the other reviews because I've been staying here many years now and it's great. Ok, it could do with some renovation, but it is an art deco hotel!!! Beautiful ocean view.

...Having spent the last 7-years at The Park Central on 640 Ocean Drive in South Beach MIAMI Florida as repeat guest, I feel as though I can speak with some measure of authority, where this particular review is concerned. Although too numerous to mention, I will attempt to highlight a few details in order that this review be put into... More

Old and musty rooms. We stayed here during our Miami - Key west trip. The only plus point of this hotel is its location. You could walk to the beach from this hotel in a couple of minutes.Beware, they hold a deposit of $28 for the room keys and unfortunately they don't remind you to hand over the keys to... More

I stayed here for two nights after returning from a cruise. The pros: I got a good rate through a third-party website, the staff was wonderful, it's right on Ocean and it's a 2 minute walk to the beach. The cons: The hallways (other than the lobby) and dark and dank, my entire floor reeked of some weird smell (like... More
