“FOND MEMORIES”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

My father and I vacationed at this little hotel back in the early 1950's. I have many fond memories of these vacations. Dad & I would sit on the patio at the front of the Mcalpin and just people watch. The magnificent beach and ocean were just across the street. Busy Collins Avenue is just a short walk, where you can still find shops and restaurants.

Great location on South Beach but 2-3 blocks from night clubs so it is relatively quiet at the property. Nice rooms but the amenities are minimal. Across the street from park and the beach. Rooms have been recently renovated and are comfortable.

We go to Miami every year and now that we own at HGVC we will book here every year! Great location! Awesome staff! At the time we went the gym was closed for renovations, however, they made arrangement and I was able to go to the gym nearby. No noise from construction! Only issue was we could not find a luggage cart.

Very nice hotel with very courteous and helpful front desk staff. First time in Miami and staff made it very enjoyable. Helped us locate great restaurants. When checking out had cab waiting at 4:30 AM and a luggage cart had been placed outside our door. Just little things like that made the trip so much more enjoyable. Also had the most comfortable sleeper sofa that I have ever slept in. Nicer than my bed at home!!!

Stayed a week in a 2 bedroom hall & kitchen suite (handicapped accessible) sleeping 6 people. Location wise - brilliant! Direct ocean view from your bed!!! Situated on Ocean Drive you are literally in the centre of things - the beach in front, ocean drive's art deco buildings, cafes, entertainment hotspots just next door, shopping and more restaurants just a 2 block walk down an adjacent alley to Washington Avenue.Front desk service was very helpful and anything you needed for the rooms was on demand. Laundry service available in basement with free detergent. Couldn't ask for more!!!!

Great location for South Beach FL. Windows in all rooms face the alley but timeshare was very nice. Best location on the South Beach strip and close to everything. Lots of restaurants close by and the beach is located across the street.

I was really satisfied almost overall with this resort, it it in the best place of South Beach (end part of Ocean Drive were it is quieter). Even though we were 4 adults staying at a one-bedroom facility it was very comfortable......the only downside was the lack of a pool or jacuzzi.
