This quaint hotel nestled between some larger ones on Collins Ave in South Beach never disappoints! This was our 3rd or 4th stay here and our hotel of choice when visiting Miami. We usually visit during Fashion Week Swim and meet other family members there and all book this hotel because of its quaint charm, great location right along the... More

This was our first visit to Miami Beach. After reading reviews about this hotel on Trip Advisor it seemed like a diamond in the ruff and we booked our stay. Immediately when walking through the halls and getting on the elevator we got the impression this hotel may have been a mistake. The reviews were very understated regarding the ancient... More

The reviews are fairly accurate. 4 stars for location, but would give it give 3 stars for hotel condition. I would say, unlike other reviews, I had no issue with any staff member. I was allowed to check in early (11pm) and check out late at no additional charge. The rooms are small and a renovation is needed; however, the... More

Very simple, the staff is very helpful but the hotel needs upkeep. The rooms are basic and clean but nothing more. Breakfast: terrible!!! 100 or more guests with room for 50-60 to sit. The sausages and potatoes were the same batch from the first day (wrinkled with a dark brownish color ), Only strawberry conserve the whole 5 days. The... More

Not a single complaint, the only slight moan is the back lift is a little slow but this is due to the age of the hotel! Would love to return! Wonderful location, pool, and staff. The room sizes are more than adequate stayed for 4 nights, with 3 other friends.

The hotel's location was excellent. Walking was a lot to see and a taxi to the main shopping centers, convenience. The air conditioner was horrible and really loud. The pool area lived cute pet lizard.

I simply loved the hotel for several reasons. 1. The excellent service and kindness provided by the staff. 2. The Cleanliness of the hotel and rooms 3. The location was perfect with access into the beach as well to Lincoln Rd. I highly recommend this hotel if you're going to vacation in South Beach Miami.
