“Nice beach front hotel in North Miami !”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Nice old world charm hotel. Not a modern hotel but basic. We stayed for 02 nights and the room given on check in smelled bad but was immediately changed on the request. It was a corner room and had two windows. The room was small but comfortable.

Had a safe for which they charged us $2 a night. The first hotel I have seen in my entire travelling experience that charges you for a fixed amenity in the room.

Location is excellent on the north beach. The bar in the adjoining hotel is lively and you can enjoy a drink or two in there. The breakfast at the hotel was good. It was enjoyable to sit outside and have the breakfast. The staff was friendly.

Enjoyed my stay and would return to stay. I would recommend this hotel to all those travelers who enjoy being on the beach rather than stay in the hotel.

If your thinking of coming here for a good Miami experience please don't. first the AC doesn't work in all the rooms second they have ants in bugs in most of the rooms third the refrigerator in the rooms are dirty and have been cleaned in years fourth there is no curtain in the rooms with the window with the bathroom. I had to put my shirt in the window so my girlfriend could use the bathroom.

This is the worst hotel I have EVER stepped foot in. Our shower floor was black....there were stains on the counter in the little cubby whole they called a bathroom. There was only ONE elevator that could only fit two of us at a time. We left because we were scared to let our skin touch the bed!!! Horrible experience for the little bit of time we were there. They should tear this place down and completely remodel it. I promise you there is NOTHING about this hotel you would like unless you are a run away or dont have a place to live. I would give this place negative stars but thats not an option unfortunately!!! I wish I would have taken photos but I was too much in shock.

Room Tip: you dont want to stay in any room

Nice Art Deco hotel for the price. Clean and staff friendly. I have been there 3 times and would go back. Beach across the parking and bicycle path near. Shopping all around and close to everything. The only downside is the noise due to the age of the building build in 1940. But there is so many things to see that this is only a minor detail. Anne

First do not be fooled, this same hotel is called "Ocean Surf Hotel" too, and this place is horrible! The pictures displayed do not match how the hotel actually looks. The receptionists are rude, the rooms are tiny, and it is not safe. The hotel is run down, and dirty. Also smells very musky, for breakfast they serve toast, tiny prepackaged muffins and if you're lucky a small orange. It is not a family friendly hotel, it is mostly people wanting to party. It's not in a convenient area, is it across the street from the beach? Yes, but that it THE only positive thing about this hotel. To sum it up DO NOT STAY HERE!
