I booked this hotel after being told by Expedia that it was 2 star. We booked it for a two night stay and were absolutely horrified when we saw the state of the room. The door to the balcony was open and didn't shut properly. The floor was filthy, so was the bathroon. The furniture was old and the televsion...

The Clay hotel is nothing special room wise but was in a fantastic location right next to the beach. It was also close to lincoln rd which was a good place to shop and eat. The room was clean, it had a tv and fringe but was basic. For value for money fine. If you are a traveller i would...

We stay at the Clay Hotel twice in two weeks. Both of times we booked a standard room, but the second time we were upgraded to the VIP room since the air conditioning in our standard room was really loud. The hotel is in a great position: in the middle of the spanish area ( Espanola way), two blocks from...

The Clay is what it is - a simple, very basic room with a great location and dirt cheap price tag for SoBe. I had a pleasant stay. Staff very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are a bit worn, but the bathroom was very clean, plenty of towels (the only other supplies are toilet paper and hand soap) - hairdryers...

I live in Miami, visit the beach a couple of times a month and often stay on the beach over long weekends. I wanted to try something different so I stayed at The Clay Hotel over the Columbus Day Weekend. I was a little apprehensive because of the many poor reviews on this site. I have to say that I...

I booked a room at the clay over memorial day weekend. Great little place and a great location. We stayed in a 4-person hostel room (2 bunks) and it had an attached bathroom. I was traveling with a friend and the other girls in our room were great. One of the best things about the hotel is that it is...

My friend and I stayed at the Hostel part of the hotel over spring break. I recommend that you stay at the Hostel. The Hostel is nicer than the hotel itself (we ended up spending one night in hotel part because the hostel room that we were book for wasn't ready). We had other friends who stayed in other Hotels...

Me and a friend a friend of mine stayed here for the "infamous" Memorial Day weekend. It was affordable ad a convenient location. It was admist the popular night clubs, restauraunts, and the beach wasn't too far. The bathroom was pretty small and so was the room. It was pretty bland but you pay for what you get. It served...

Hostel is in a fantastic location, you couldn't ask for better. We were happy with the hostel, after all its only a base and somewhere to sleep. The bathroom was clean and we really enjoyed having a beer on the balcony over looking Esplanola Way. We asked for a quite room as other reviews had said hostel was noisy. This...

I have stayed at the Clay several times before, but this was my first visit in three years. The whole place seems to have been freshly painted and plastered. My room was a budget room with a shared bath. The people who shared my bath were reasonably neat and clean and never forgot to unlock my door after using the...
