I just stayed here for one night and it was an exccellent stay. The room was nice and comfortable with all the amenities needed. They gave us beach towels and a ticket to one of the beaches to get chairs and an umbrella. Staff is really friendly and would go back again. The price is very reasonable and there breakfasts...

This is the second time I stayed at this hotel. This time was an 8 – night – stay. Location. In the Art Deco District. Great for people who do not rent a car and want to be near Ocean Drive, the beach, Espagnola Way and Lincoln Road. Rooms: Self-contained accommodation. Studio-style suites. Good-sized air-conditioned rooms. Ocean reef Suites features...

Anyone looking for a froo froo hotel with tons of amenities and top of the line brand new everything, this is not the place for you. People who want to be in a funky neighborhood with some amenities that's close to the beach and all the mayhem that is South Beach, this is definitely the place for you. Our room...

Some of the positive features of this hotel are that it is centrally located in the Art Deco District so easy to walk to multiple destinations, including the beach. Rooms are spacious with kitchen and dining area. If you want to be in the heart of the action, then this is the place to be. However, because it was an...

Really disgusting rooms that smelled of mildew, and old carpet and bathrooms rife with mold. Top that off with the rudest front desk staff, whom I frequently overheard scolding guests and then talking about them in Spanish behind their backs. Surprise - this Asian knows Spanish! One of the employees even rolled her eyes at me when I requested a...

Let me first say, there is NO parking at this hotel or anywhere close by. They do offer $25/night for the valet service which I STRONGLY recommend. There are two parking ramps each 1-2 blocks from the hotel and we ended up paying $42/night. Our check-in was easy and the gentleman helping was very pleasant and efficient. Our room was...

Ocean Reef Hotel is a nice hotel for the budget conscious traveler. Clean, very clean, nice kitchenette, and above all great service. We were a little worried about the breakfast service, but it ended up being better than we expected. As stated by many reviewers, location is great. Within ten block one can have everything from shopping, art, great restaurants,...

Added a few days in Miami to the end of our cruise holiday. I can't believe this qualifies as a hotel. In Canada when you rent a hotel you get a real bed. This hotel does not have real beds. Metal slat platforms with I don't know what for a matress ( it crinkles like newspaper) and rock hard old...

Room was very spacious and comfortable, breakfast good and staff kind and helpful. I would definitely stay in this hotel again, even if we woke up on two out of three nights on false fire alarms. It's also close to the beach and easy to reach from the airport by public bus.

The staff were the standouts of our stay: they were helpful and informative. The location is excellent, right near the beach and ocean drive. Rooms were reasonably priced and well equipped with cooking utensils. The rooms were quite spacious and had wifi in the rooms. They also offer a free shuttle form the airport, but it costs ~$20 to get...
