Hotel is literally in the middle of the entertainment strip. It goes bar, bar, bar, restuarant, bar, bar, this hotel, bar, bar, bar, bar, restaurant. So if you are here to party this is the place to stay. Also is directly across from beach. Rooms are clean, price is good.

Dear Past Guest,

Thank you for your review. I have to say, unfortunately 50 cent has not stayed with us yet but we've had MANY famous people stay at the Casa Grande.
Hope you will visit soon!
Best,
Steven Annicharico, Assistant Manager

First girls trip to Miami and the start of it was not so good!! It took us over an hour to check in and the staff (Ofilia & Carlos) saw us waiting, but they continued to walk around and do other things rather than one stay at the check in desk. Well, our reservations were wrong in their system bc they had us checking out a day earlier. Then we go to the room Ofilia puts us in and five minutes later Carlos is calling us saying we were going to be upset bc only famous people stay in this room, so we were insulted when they put us a the dirtiest room ever !!!!!!!! Food was all in the chairs and the carpet looked like everyone's dog / cat had urinated on it!!!! It was just disgusting!!!!! Finally we had to complain and stress how we preferred a room with tile and could not believe they even put people in that room!!!! We had to settle for a one bedroom with a king bed and a pullout sofa bed instead of a room with two double beds like we reserved. Ronnie is by far the best manager ever! He made things so much better and allowed us to have an enjoyable stay. Not sure if I would stayed here again just because of the location and I definitely wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Call ahead of time to reserve the room you would like and ask for a room that has tiled floors.

1 star is too much, should be 0 or -10.
This place is filthy dirty and scummy. Sure the lobby is nice, but once you get up to the 2nd floor you will be knocked over by the pet urine smell mixed in with old cigarette smell. Then inside your room you will find it stains on the walls and filth everywhere.

I found hair in my bed too, I am willing to bet that the bed sheets weren't even changed.

I found this place on the groupon, I booked 2 nights, I lost the 2nd night money because I left after the first night. I even had to pay room tax on the 2nd night. It was worth it to not have to stay there again.

Reserved a two bedroom suite....received a suite with king bed and a let out sofa.
No towels in room.
Needed to request toilet paper be refilled.
No soap in room.
Full kitchen but no pots, pans, utensils, glasses or dishes.
Room was quiet and in great location.
Water pressure is extreme....you feel as though you're going to have bruises.
Staff not very friendly.
Furniture was chipped, broken and very very VERY old.
Air conditioner was stuck on freeze your butt off.
Adjoining restuarant in decent and has a good brunch deal.
Every employee I spoke with had an excuse as to why the hotel didn't have what was in my reservation..................and let's not forget the additional fees.

I would only recommend this place to youngsters who simply wanted to be on ocean drive but actually never slept in their room.

Room Tip: Make certain you are VERY specific on what room you request and how many beds are included.

always call and confirm your bedding arrangements! Get your bedding confirmations in advance. Great host staff, housekeeping is very friendly. Very clean & quiet! Great location in the middle of nightlife and beachfront. Room size is awesome. There may only be (one) -two bedroom suite. Two bed suites go quickly! Full kitchens! One bedroom suite is great but pullout couch- maybe not so much. So to clarify please call ahead to confirm your choice of suites!! And specify suite type in your reservation. (either way - you can't lose!)

Room Tip: Confirm room type in advance

Stayed for 5 days and stayed in a suite. Very quiet room. Very important since the night doesn't end until 5 am. Lots of room, few issues, microwave was broken, converter didnt work in the living room. Great water pressure. Lots of channels to watch,TV in bedroom. Ronnie is excellent, notices you all the time when you are coming and going. Note $25 daily resort fee. Would go back.

I'm only giving this hotel 2 stars because of the location. Our room was stinky (as was the refrigerator), the sofa bed was broken forcing me to use pillows to make a mattress (and we had to beg the staff to help pull it out, which they even had a hard time doing), there were no washcloths or soap in the room (called for some, they never came), the tv remote had no batteries (called for some, none were available), we couldn't adjust the super powerful shower so we all basically fought the current while getting clean, the toilet barely flushed, and when the clerk INSISTED that I tell him what was wrong he complained that I had too many complaints (even though he asked and even went as far as stopping the elevator from closing so I could detail to him).

I've stayed in hotels of all degrees so I know what to expect. But I'd much rather walk a few blocks from a better hotel than to stay here again simply because it's on Ocean Drive. No thanks.
