“Noisy girls partying with security”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

The hotel was full so I had to stay in this one.(several hotels in the same building, castle beach). the problems are common to all the hotels in the property. slow elevators, roaches, third world country service. Lots of very noisy drunk or in drug girls every night in the hallway, probably prostitutes, no phone to call security. Came down to see and they were partying with security at the front desk. went back to my room, no point in complaining. was like 4 am.

night before, they overbooked and people found guests still in their rooms.

mixed feelings, ocean front, cheap, generally good people, nice lobby, but run down and poor service. Food market are thieves, very high prices and they tax the food, closed at night, no restaurant, . the only bright spot is the pool bar.

Lots of fake reviews, it has become an industry. you will see them mixed with the terrible reviews. The city of Miami Beach once closed the place as it declared it inhabitable for two years. The city let the reopen and there is progress but, many of the owners are slum lords. Some are proud of their property and have very beautiful units.

I came many times here, there are apartments, townhouses and small hotel rooms.

Room Tip: locate an owner who has a great unit. Avoid the hotels and the slumlords. plan ahead, valet is very...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

I had read mixed reviews over the last years and was unsure of this hotel. Last year, my sister-in-law stayed there and had a great time so we decided to go with friends and family for Christmas.
The rooms are spacious, supposedly for 2/3 people, but we were 4 and the space was just fine (1 double bed, 1 sofa bed and an extra mattress). It even has a big walk-in closet, great to leave the luggage, a large bathroom and a fully-equipped kitchen.
Remember this is not a hotel, you have cleaning service for free one time during your stay, and you can pay extra for additional cleaning services. Also you have to exchange your towels on the lobby.
The condo is going through some renovations, it is not 100% modern, but it is very nice overall. The pool is great, and there is a restaurant in the hotel with excellent prices. The beach is not the nicest around, but you can always walk a bit.
Location is also good, although it is not located in South Beach it is very near both Miami Beach and Bal Halbour.
