If you want a party hotel then this location is for you. The clubs on either side of the hotel play music until 4:00 am every weekend. The service staff did ok but there was no offer of any kind to remedy the situation. I spoke to the staff at the hotel on the shift at 3:45

Breakfast cost nearly $50. A smoothie was over $12. Food and service left a lot to be desired. Location is good but that's all it has going for it. There are better places one street in towards Collins.

Great place to stay and enjoy South Beach - number of bars / restaurants close by. Beach towel and bicycles are a huge plus. Friendly staff. Basic but very tasty breakfast. The only cons its lack of parking space but this is the case for almost all hotels located on the Ocean Dr.

The hotel Breakwater is just fine, on Ocean Drive you take the noise with the noise and the vibes with the vibes, good fun. Crazy route to our room which was in the adjoining buidling through the outside cafe, left through the ice-cream shop and then there's a lift hidden in the corner, unique is the word! The corridor carpets...

Arrived at the hotel, paid for a balcony room. Got one overlooking an alley. Had to stick paper in the closet door so it would stay closed. I get that the hotel is old and Art Deco, but come on. Then get changed to another room with a balcony with an Ocean View. However balcony is undergoing renovations. So it...
