“Great Place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The hotel has really good amenities like 24h tea, coffee and water in a public lounge area. Room is equipped with a "Keurig" coffeemaker and a little fridge. Daddy O has a really cozy atmosphere because it is a boutique hotel. Location was perfect for us and really calm, kept the window open the whole night. (a 15 min drive from busy south beach). Great and helpful staff at all time. Will definitely come again.

A nice hotel in a quiet area, if you have a car it is close to everything but still away from the noises of south beach and traffic. Very nice staff, OK breakfast (yoghurt, bagels & muffins). Rooms were not soundproof, sometimes we heard the neighbors tv, but it never became a problem. We would stay there again!

The daddy O hotel location can’t be beat. We truly are “close to everything but away from it all” with a 10 minute walk from the beach, a 15 minute drive to South Beach and a short ride to most all tourist attractions. Our staff is always ready to help with anything we can, and we thank you for the acknowledgment. Thank you so much for staying with us and for the great review you posted on tripadivsor.
Best Regards,

Stayed at Daddy O Hotel for 13 nights due to an extended business assignment. What an amazing find! The hotel is clean, service is outstanding, staff professional, friendly and helpful. Excellent and very safe location ( walking distance to beach, Bal Harbour Shops and many local restaurants. Highly recommend and will for sure stay again. Gosia Eberle.

I'm so happy we found this little gem in Miami! Thanks to tripadvisor, and I hope my review can do the same for someone else. We had been hopping around changing hotels a few times because Miami was so busy during New Years and we hadnt planned well enough in advance.

We stayed here for 5 nights, in two rooms with a connecting door, we also had a car. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated, modern and just big enough. A continental breakfast is included, which I found to be quite nice, even though its simple.
A really nice lady put out cupcakes, bagels, cream cheese and jams every morning in the lounge, where there is also a nice coffee and juice machine.There is also a really good coffee machine in the room.

Staff is super friendly and eager to please and help which was not very common at other hotels in Miami. They also speak good enligsh which was also not very common at other hotels. Not even at big fancy hotels as Eden Roc.

A few notable things that we thought was really positive;

1. We paid a little extra sum to be able to park our car at the hotel parkinglots.(The hotel has some deal, so you can park by lots with a parking meter) and then its cheaper than if you put in coins yourself also more convenient because then you dont have to get up early every morning and refill). However one night most of the parkinglots were taken probably because of a nearby restaurant. By mistake we parked where we shouldnt have and used our hotel permit, of course we got a ticket. When we showed the ticket to the hotel staff they kinly offered to cover it, without hassle, which we found very nice and accomodating.

2.Pets are allowed, and one night there was a dog barking all night. I called the front desk around 01.00 am complaining, and they apologized saying they were doing all they could to help the owner calm the dog and to work out the problem. When we checked out they apologized again, whithout us bringing it up and said we did not have to pay for parking for the 5 days spent at the hotel because of the dog barking and disturbing our sleep. I thought this was really really nice of them.

3. They allowed for an afternoon checkout without extra charge so we could relax at the beach and then take a shower before checking out and heading to the airport.

On top of these nice gestures staff was attentive, smiling, friendly, laid back and relaxed. They always seemed eager to help you with all kinds of stuff.

They dont have a pool, but I really dont think they need one. We found that pools in Miami are a little bit redunant because the ocean is gorgerous. The hotel is only a short walk from Surfside Beach, which we found to be much nicer than Miami Beach, its just further up Miami Beach and its cleaner, calmer and not even nearly as crowded. Mostly its residents using the beach.

I would stay here again, and recommend this hotel to friends!

Spent 2 night there last weekend for the BCS game. The hotel is small, clean and has very comfortable rooms. Great Location in Bay Harbor only 20 minutes from South Beach action.
Staff was pleasant and always accessible. The Palm is next door. Nice free breakfast in morning.
Only issue is the thin walls. Would return here.

Room Tip: go for second floor towards back.

Lovely hotel, great room. One of the best beds ever!!! Room small but very comfortable. To go breakfast included, no where to sit to eat it.
Staff polite and helpful
Sadly will not return to Miami due to an horrendous experience of having car towed. All tourists need to be made aware of the $317 charge to recover your vehicle

We’re sorry to hear about your car being towed. That is honestly a rare occurrence and we are happy to hear that your car was not towed while on Daddy O Hotel property. Otherwise, thank you for the wonderful review. Our beds are one of the most requested items after a guests stay. Just in case you were wondering, these beds are especially made for wholesale distribution to hotels, so unfortunately, you would not be able to purchase one for domestic use. Thank you for recognizing the effort, and friendliness of all our staff. And hopefully you will reconsider coming back to Miami so that you can return to the Daddy O Hotel.
Best Regards,
Daddy O Hotel Staff
