The hotel is fine, theres nothing particularly wrong with it per se. The room wasn't very big but the bathroom was nice. I also thought outside got rather noisy of a night. There is no pool or anything like that, but there is free wifi. I just feel that for the same price, you could get a better hotel in... More

ok for one night, as it's a bit noisy when you're on a room with window on the street... Clean hotel...but no breakfast available before 7am, so not convenient if you have to leave earlier to catch you flight... Good price, but expensive to park your car!

This was the last hotel I had in US during my month-long travelling and it was excellent! Very welcoming staff, especially the woman from Germany, very helpful, great location - 5 minute walk to the beach, where you have the chairs reserved for you; the hotel itself is on Espagnola way, a little street with many nice restaurants next to...

After reading reviews we plumped for this hotel for one night. Our stay was to see south beach and then to downtown Miami the following day. We weren't disappointed. The hotel is situated on the corner of Espanola way with various restaurants underneath. It has beautiful courtyards with blue and white tiles giving it a Mediterranean feel. It was slightly...

very central located, close to the beach, the shopping area and restaurants. Quite glad with my stay.. the rooms need some renovation coz it feels a bit old but if you are looking for a middle level budget trip. That's the way to go, the breakfast is quite weak, so just take it for coffee and some cookies

Bit confusing finding your room but hotel is minutes from the beach and you have all the choices for a variety of food choices within a couple minutes. The rooms are being refurbished and are of a good standard but the room we had a musty smell about it, other then that very good for our needs. Good for a... More

This is a great place to stay in Miami, just in waking distance to the beach and around all of the restaurant. The room was clean comfortable and the front desk service was very nice and helpful. I booked on this hotel on priceline and had problems with the booking when we got there. But there was a young lady... More

I booked our hotel stay at The Clay through Priceline four days before our departure date. Of course I viewed the reviews on Trip Advisor. Long story short, my daughter and I missed our flight to Miami(now that’s a long story). I called Priceline to see what could be done even though their policy clearly stated NO REFUND for the...
