We stayed at the clay hotel for three nights. I will say a very old hotel but our room was clean with new carpet and flat screen. The room was very small. We had a queen deluxe room, the bed seem like a full size. The location was excellent right in the middle of everything. They don't have ice machines or elevators but other than that it was ok.

Room Tip: If you want to be in the center of everything and do not have a lot of luggage, this would be a good...

It a lovely place to stay at! Almost everything was close to this hotel, beaches, restaurants things to see and do..It was easy to take the bus in different directions to see and find attractions in Miami.

Stayed at the clay hotel from the 3rd -6th of April after doing Disneyland in Orlando. When we arrived we were given a room with 2 double beds that was supposed to be a family room?? We have a boy and a girl of 7 and 9.
When we spoke with reception we were told that the hotel does not have any rooms with single beds in it? and that the room we had was a family room, eventually after many minutes of asking for a manager we were offered a room with 2 rooms that was ok but still not worth the money we had paid for the family room that was offered when we had booked the room originally.

Also after checking in we were given a room 2 blocks down from reception and up 3 flights of stairs and no lift, which isn't easy with 2 children and 6 Cases! The hallways were disgusting with part of the ceiling hanging down and electrical wires hanging out of the walls and a overbearing smell of old chip fat from the restaurant downstairs. Apparently the hotel is being renovated but we weren't told this when we booked it and saw no signs of work being done.

location is good as long as you don't mind being woken up at 4am by druken idiots that like to shout. If you have children pay a little more and don't get sucked into the promise of a great hotel that is cheap.

I stayed at the Clay hotel and it was beautiful and incredible. I think the Clay hotel should be a landmark for Miamis rich and cultural history. The flowers are evrywhere and the chairs are super cumfy. All the rooms have new TVs and carpet. I loved my room, but not as much as i loved the Food downstairs or the view from my balcony :)
A few of my friends went Marriot for the trip but i would much rather stay where the life of miami is. I am soooo happy with my choice.

From the moment i came in i was greeted by the concierge. Fresh flowers were everywhere and art upon the walls. In my bedroom were fresh towels, folded so nicely and the bathrooms were well stocked. The chilling areas were peaceful and filled with leather couches.
i had an amazing stay and the food downstairs was FANTASTIC!!!!

Room Tip: ask to try one of their newly renovated rooms :) the best rooms are on the second floor

The Clay is not a place to go if you're looking for the glitz and glamour of south beach, but it is very reasonably priced in comparison to other hotels in the vicinity. It is in a great location, you can walk to most of the main attractions from this place. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful, I would definitely go again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor, the hotel is located on two very popular streets filled with res...

I loved this hotel. It's gorgeous, clean, comfortable, and loaded with charm. Check in was a breeze, valet parking simple and quick, and the location couldn't be better. I was very wary because sometimes the older hotels are full of mold and dilapidated ... definitely not the case here. This antique has been beautifully preserved and upgraded without losing any of it's 1930's charm.

This will be my first choice next time we come to South Beach.
