Just one night in Miami!

Husband & I are laying over in Miami (from Oklahoma) for one night in Mid-May and would SO appreciate a recommendation on a beachfront (or walking distance) hotel that's not too pricey ($150-ish). We're very excited about seeing Miami and can't imagine not staying on the beach! An airport shuttle would be a huge plus or at least a place within a reasonable distance from the airport by taxi.

Thanks for any pointers!

You will limit your choices if you want to be on a the beach and require a free airport shuttle. Better to use the $2.35 airport flyer #150 bus, or the $32+tip flat rate taxi. This is a partial list of south beach hotels within 2 blocks or less of the beach, which are decent and moderatley priced:

Penguin, Cadet, Winterhaven, Kent, La Flora, President, Dorchester, Albion, Townhouse, Essex House, Park Central, Avalon, Beacon, Villa Paradiso, Marlin, Blue Moon, St. Augustine, Catalina, Impala, South Seas, Courtyard by Marriott, Sherbrooke, South Beach Hotel, Congress, New Clinton, Richmond, Century, Cardozo, Astor...

Your are welcome. I did put a review on in june if you want to check it further. It isnt a five star hotel by any means. But its clean and the staff are superb. Also you may want to check out the airport flyer

bus there is a stop right by the hotel and at $2.35 each is a great bargain

we used it going to the hotel last year and it couldnt have worked better for us. We didnt use it going back to the airport (we did intend to) but we was having such a good time got the days mixed up and thought we

had an extra day so we was sat round the pool when we should have been at the airport!!! Thanks to the hotel they organised us a taxi and did a very swift check out and we made the flight!!

Have a great time
