In the corner of the charming Espagnola Way, 5 minutes from Lincoln Rd. Colonial style, small room, but clean and with all the comforts necessary. We even had free access to the beach just 10 minutes from the hotel... that was perfect! Loved this little cheap hotel!!!!!!

Stayed there for 1 night and found it was in the perfect location with lots of restaurants, bars and shops nearby and the beach just a short walk away. The room was very spacious and clean which made for a comfortable sleep. If back in Miami, I would stay again.

The room itself was good, bed was comfortable and air con ran well. Bathroom was big and had nice amenities. Room had a fridge and microwave. Only downside was our room was right on the restaurant side and the music was very loud until about 2am every night. It's fine if you don't mind but maybe not for families.

Room itself is a decent size. The kitchen-et would benefit from a toaster but there is a microwave l, fridge and coffee maker. The toiletries provided are a good quality. The bathroom only has a shower, no tub. THE ROOMS ARE VERY NOISY. We requested a quiet room but got room 301. It was VERY noisy from the bar bellow... More

I had one day in Miami after recently enjoying a cruise, so we opted to stay in South Beach. I booked The Clay and realized it was expensive for the little time we needed the room, but still wanted to unload a bit. Our room was about a half way down the block and up a tight flight of stairs.... More
