A very relaxing stay. There was a problem with our first room in a separate building. Mimi at the front desk, promptly moved us to another room in the main building. Since Mimi was aware of the music and activity of the sidewalk restaurants under rooms in the front of the hotel, she gave us a beautiful room on the...

Room was adorable and cozy! Don't waste on their continental breakfast, parking costs $$$- valet, wifi just ok. Yet the location can not be beat for pricing when you grab a deal. Fridge and microwave is a plus for me when i travel so they have it! yes its older yet has the charm so why bother with a chain....

The room was ok, but the location is very nice. You can just go down and walk to espanola way and eat, drink. I would definitely go back here if given a chance. Very pleased with our stay in this hotel.

I want to start off positive and say that the hotel was clean, comfortable, in an excellent location, and has friendly and efficient staff. However, please be aware of false advertising on their website. On the website, it says that rooms have: microwave, mini fridge, Keurig coffee maker, and iron and ironing board. The rooms have none of the above...

This hotel is in a great location, only a few blocks from Ocean Drive. It is part of Espanola way, which is a strip of street cafes and restaurants with a Spanish feel. The lobby has tons of local character. The staff were exceptionally attentive and helpful. Since the hotel is quite old, the rooms are very small and basic...

The road outside at the moment is being dug-up. I haven't reflected this in my review but it's worth noting/checking because it's a mess and very noisy. The room is sparse but OK and very clean. Needs a bedside lamp as the main lights are blindingly bright, I resorted to using my phone light. It's valet parking at $32 per...

The location is great and the price not too bad considering how expensive Miami Beach can be, but I wouldn't recommend the hotel. Very old fashioned, very noisy because of all the refurbishment works, smelly, poor housekeeping, unfriendly staff.

I arrived at the Clay Hotel early Friday. They had convenient valet parking and I was immediately greeted by the front desk, who checked me in very fast. I was escorted to my room and extremely happy with the room. The room was super clean, everything from the blankets, pillow sheets, drapes, shower curtain- very clean with not 1 piece...

I had a small room that had just been renovated. Freshly painted, nice bathroom fairly quiet except for some light construction in the hallway. Light breakfast. Some at the front desk during the day appeared indifferent but Peter working n the evenings was very hospitable.

I'm giving this hotel a 5 star rating because of the price, location and added amenities. Complimentary beach towels and chairs is a nice touch. Granted the complimentary continental breakfast could have been better but it was enough to get us through until lunch. The room was clean which is more important to us than the size or the decor....
