South Beach Plaza Villas is in a great location on Collins, near 13th Street and next to it's sister hotel South Beach Hotel. Our room was comfortable and clean with air conditioning. A small but adequate bathroom with a decent shower. Room rate included breakfast which was a buffet style affair, in the bar area...they also have a patio area between the two hotel which is pleasant for dining or lounging in. Free wifi is included along with 2 free glasses of wine between 5-6pm. We found the staff to be very pleasant. Valet parking is offered for a fee but there is a public car park on 13th which offers much better rates. Location wise this is a great choice one block from South Beach and within easy walking distance of Lincoln Road and Esponala Way...great areas with lots of bars and restaurants (there are also dining options on Ocean Road opposite South Beach). All in all enjoyed our 3 day stay at the hotel.

Stayed in King room. Has a king bed, night stand. No other furniture. Most of our belongings were on floor. The wi-fi Internet never worked the 4 nights we were there. Front desk said it was a problem with Apple/Mac ? Bedspread was very worn out and needs replaced. The blanket was the same, didn't feel comfortable sleeping with it. The a/c is a window unit and leaked water on the floor when it rained. Would not stay here again.

This place rocks, but the utmost of this place is the guy named "Jose" who treated us with such respect and caring that certainly we will back there next vacation. It is a must! The happy hours are great and you can enjoy everything at the patio!

OK so South Beach is an animated area and can be noisy at times.

But I knew we were in trouble when I stepped in and saw people drinking and yelling in the lobby over cheap music in the cheap bar... (drink as much as you want for $20 during 1hr). Our room was right next to the dumpster bin. At 7AM, trucks started picking up trash in the alley. It sounded like 3rd World War bombardments. This hotel attracts the kind of people who do not respect the other customers' sleep.

Staff was not welcoming, they avoided asking us how was our stay and did not thank us.
Rooms were outdated. The beds crack and the whole rooms just don't convey any friendly nor relaxing atmosphere. "Plush pillows"?

Disappointed it was advertized as a 3* hotel on Hotwire. (with pending reviews) Contrary to what the hotel says on their website, there is nothing elegant to this place. Avoid.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the lobby or by the back of the building.

The hotel is old and rundown, outside open place scraggy with uncomfortable chairs etc. The room was so-so. But worse was to come. There was no hot water in the morning and the complaint was very badly managed. The maintenance crew were not available. Many clients simply went out without a hot shower. The manager was not available and played hide and seek with us; she was in but didn't meet us, we were told she woud call us in the room but didn't and when I finally put in a written complaint, the reception clerk refused to give an acknowledgement for receiving it even threatening to call security to remove us for making a legitimate complaint in the best language and in a low civil voice! Fortunately, the security person acknowledged the complaint. MY ADVICE DON'T STAY HERE. LOTS OF BETTER PLACES ON OCEAN DRIVE AVAILABLE

We came from Finland, and stayed in South Beach Villas 3 nights. It was worst nightmare ever, there were little bed bug nymphs all over our bed, table and floor. I found those bugs even in bathroom! Discusting thing ever!!! There were also big holes in the floor, and walls. The room was so filthy, that I had to wash the floor by myself. I washed the floor with an white handtowel.. and when I was finished, the towel was black!! They defininetly do not clean up the rooms!!!! This vacation should have been my greatest dream, I saved money for this trip one year. We had an wonderful week in Orlando, but South beach villas ruined our last days in Florida. I just cried when I saw this place.. I felt like cheated. The staff were arrogant and unfriendly, and when I finally got back home in Finland, I had red bedbug bites all over my body. Please, do NOT go in south beach villas!!!!
