We stayed here for the Miami Ock and Roll Half Marathon. Excellent service and the place was better than we expected. "Richard" was helpful with directions and other relevant beach informatioin. Would stay again for next year's 1/2 marathon.

Genuinely helpful staff and a really good location on Ocean Drive near Lincoln outdoor mall make this a great find.

Room was large - like a junior suite with small kitchen. Newly refurbished with modern furniture.

There's no pool (the beach is across the road) and the balcony looked onto a small service road but these are to be expected for the price.

Only a few details would make this hotel better:

- the room was very dark at night and needs at least one more lamp
- the bathroom towels were thin and cheap - in contrast to the bathroom itself which was very smart
- the wifi was particularly fiddly to log into and has been set to log you out every few minutes.

But overall, a very nice property. Recommended.

Very nice location and very nice service. Really nice hotel. The restaurant is also very good. Big rooms with lots of space and light. Near the beach and the restaurants and bars. in a quiet place in Ocean Drive

Thank you for choosing us, Sergio. Our rooms are definitely different than your usual hotel rooms and this is why our guests feel more like at home than in a hotel. Hope to see you again.

So pleased with this hotel - great location, decent room (very clean and good size) and the staff are just super helpful and friendly. We were travelling with 2 kids (toddler and newborn) and naturally I was super nervous but the staff were so incredibly helpful and nice that I felt totally at ease. I would definitely come here again. Highly recommend edgewater hotel!

This hotel could not be better located if you want a south beach hotel close to all the action. It's at the quiet end of ocean drive which means its a hop across the road to the beach and a short walk to Lincoln Road mall, Espanola Way etc where you find very nice shops and restaurants.
We had a deluxe sea view studio which was spacious and view out onto ocean drive and sea was perfect.There was a background noise from out the front which did not bother us at all. People who complain about a bit of noise at this hotel should research their holiday plans,this is Ocean Drive, Miami!!! It's not a quiet place. Stay off ocean drive if a quiet holiday is what you want.
The beach chairs and towels were a big bonus. The breakfast is very basic but adequate. Happy hour free drinks a nice touch. Wi fi worked very well.
The staff are all very friendly and keen to help.
If a central location, close to the action,at a reasonable price is what you want then look no further !

stayed here for 1 night. the loocation is very central and the staff was very friendlly and helpful. I had the smallest type of room which was really really small. basically just a bed, almost could not open my suitcase on the floor! fortunately I was alone. for 2 this type of room would have been really too small!,The room was very clean, .not get fooled by the "free breakfast" offer. it is only a "take away" type of buffet with pastries and coffee. ther eis no place to sit down and actually eat your breakfast! ,I would like to mention to the Maintenance staff and the Fast service to Open my Room and safety box......

Room Tip: Try room 502

Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for staying with us and for deciding to share your experience. Your comment about the room size comes quite as a surprise, we usually receive the opposite since our smallest room is 361 square feet. Please keep in mind that we also offer one bedroom suites which average around 600 square feet.
Sorry that you did not enjoy our breakfast offering, we do pay attention to what our guests enjoy and change the selection every so often. We do not advertise it as free, it is actually part of the resort fee. We use our rooftop terrace for breakfast and we do have plenty of seating, not sure if you noticed.
Thanks again for staying with us, hope we will have the pleasure of being at your service again.

This hotel is in a great location right on Ocean Drive and within easy walking distance of Washington Avenue and Collins Avenue. We used the valet parking for about $30 a day, although if you don't have a lot of luggage there are plenty of multi storeys you can use close by. We arrived before check in and our room wasn't ready so the staff took care of our luggage and advised us to get some lunch, when we returned our room was ready.
The happy hour on the roof terrance was great with amazing views out to sea. We also used the hotel beach towels and chairs and walked over the road to the beach.
Rooms are large but the view from balcony wasn't great. The bath towels are quite small and the hotel doesn't have a sign on the front making it tricky to locate. Also no swimming pool but with the beach so close it didn't matter.
