The location of this hotel is perfect. The beach is literally a 10 min walk. There is a CVS that is 5-6 mins walking distance. The street the hotel is located on is always exciting with plenty of activity and people moving about. There are several restaurants (you get a discount to eat at several just for staying at the...

Very nice and perfectly located hotel. Staff very kind and helpful If case of need at the reception Mimi and Nathalie are the two person you should ask for . Room service also very kind and we have leaarned that sometime just by asking you can achieve more than only thinking "they might not"

Located near South Beach which is the most interesting and touristic part of Miami, Clay hotel is a nice art deco style hotel. The room was a bit small but it had everything one could ask for a short stay.

My mom & aunt were visiting from up North for a few days & chose this hotel (which I had never heard of) because they read about the quaint area of SoBe on Española Way and thought it'd be a convenient location to stay at. When she mentioned the daily rate was a little less than $150 (including their daily... More

We arrived at 1 AM with a booking paid 3 weeks ago. First, we had to wait 20 minutes for a clerk to show up! Then that clerk y was very rude (did not apologize, did not make eye contact, barely said 3 words to us, no hello, no thank you). The name of that person is Luis. We hope... More

Stayed here one night after deciding to extend our stay in SoBe an extra night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a bit tricky finding our room initially but was no problem thereafter. There are multiple buildings, staircases and hallways. Kinda hard to describe. The hotel could definitely use some better (more) signage for way-finding. There did... More

This Hotel is in a very nice Location. 4 minutes walking to South Beach. 5 minutes walking to Lincoln Avenue. Price is good to the quality you got, dont expect a 4 or 5 stars service. The worst thing is that you need to carry your luggage yourself. I noticed it is a family business which makes it even cuter.... More

The Clay Hotel is the place to stay in South Beach. The location is great and the block-long promenade along side the hotel is full of good restaurants. The hotel is recently refurbished and the rooms, while small, are very nice and very clean. Stay includes reserved beach chaises and free breakfast. When we go back to South Beach, we're... More

One star more for perfect location. You can't get any closer to the best pubs, restaurants and clubs. 7min walk to the beach. Plesant service. Clean rooms, but they should clean the AC (air conditioning) -it smells. It is recommended to go there without a car. There is no parking at the hotel, but at this location You won't need... More

My friend and I were offered excellent service to make our stay comfortable. The front desk was really helpful and nice during our 2 weeks stay. The hotel is just two blocks away from the beach and surrounded with good restaurants.
