“Small and noisy room.”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Green Hotel, everything is solar energy, Eco friendly so don't expect it to be bright and cheery, I could not see my face in the mirror to shave in the bathroom, the sink in the bathroom is so small that I did not have room to place my bag with my personal hygienic belongings. Our room was very noisy from the sound of our air conditioning, the hallway and the next door rooms. the TV is not easy to get it to work because of the solar system you have to wait for it to warm up for about 3 minutes, complicated when you don't know. Rooms are clean and OK for the price. after we complained about the noise and the size of the room we were given a larger room for the same price, and it was better, but the bathroom was the same, very tiny 5 X 4 and the bedroom is approximately 11 X 10 OK for one bed, too small for two beds,and there is no bed, only a box spring on the floor and the mattress. Overall for the price in the area, its OK. I do not want to discourage anybody from staying in this Hotel, just want to give more info.

Definitely not a four star hotel. Room was a little dirty, window was cracked, curtains were broken and falling down. The bathroom was nice but that was about it. You can also hear pretty clearly through the walls and down the hall from the lobby.

Also the person at the front desk did not make me feel comfortable. He was mumbling a lot of strange things.

Akupec,

Thank you for your recent review. I'm sorry to hear that we were not able to meet your expectations and although the Clifton Hotel, South Beach does not claim to be a 4 star property, it is truly our priority to ensure the service you receive from all of our staff is 5 star and I understand that was not your experience.

Good quality hotel overall. Fantastic location. Only 2-3 minutes to South beach. Room was very eco friendly. Good Wi-Fi internet connection. Room basic but just what you need if you are only sleeping in the hotel and going to be travelling around during the day. This is one of the best value for money hotels in Miami, especially considering the location on South Beach.

Free breakfast is very basic and starts too late. Think it starts at 8pm. Which is far too late for some travellers. Shower head is very annoying. Water leaks from the bottom of the shower because their are small gaps. Reception staff seem to always be on their phone or laptop watching videos. Not enough attention when someones walking to their desk. Valet parking at the hotel is expensive. There is a parking lot next door with 5-6 floors. They do parking for $20 per day. This is cheap for Miami.

This is overall a good quality hotel, with a fantastic location, and good quality room. Would recommend to friends.

DeepakTailor,

Thank you for taking the time to submit your recent review. As a Top Contributor, travelers appreciate your opinions and insight. The difficulties you've experience with maintenance issues in the bathroom and breakfast beginning at 8:00 am daily are unfortunate, but the lack of attention you've described from our staff is inexcusable. We look forward to an opportunity to leave a better impression in this regard during your next visit.

Room was tiny, bathroom was ok with a good shower, wifi good, two bottles of water good, 12,50 $ resort fee good compared to other hotels. Paper thin walls no good (if you have a hot couple in the room beside, you can imagine how funny it can be...), bed hard like a stone no good, no swimming pool, no exercise room. Location is great, close to Ocean Drive and Lincoln Rd., and not noisy as you think. Overall a decent choice for the price you pay (but South Beach has crazy hotel prices...)

Room Tip: Away from lobby and the street

Green Features: Good efforts to distinguish themselves through good environmental practices.

Workinp,

Thank you for your review! We believe the feedback of each of our guests is imperative to our growth and therefore truly appreciate you taking the time to share your opinions. Due to the property size at the Clifton Hotel we do not have a gym on site however, we have daily guest passes to the David Barton Gym which is considered to be one of the best in Miami Beach. Equally, we offer use of the pools at our sister property only two blocks away for those guests who prefer it over the beach only one block away.

This is definitely not a 4 star hotel. I did not feel comfortable taking off my shoes in the room and the bed left something to be desired. I guess for the price it was okay, but I would not suggest people stay there.

The guy at the front desk was definitely a little bit different and needs to lose the "I'm from Mars joke"

The bathroom was nice, but doesn't make up for the bed, hair on the towels, and not clean looking carpet. Also, hard to sleep when they have loud music booming from the lobby area

We stayed in Miami for Halloween and had a blast. This was walking distance to Lincoln Ave (tourist trap but where all the Halloween festivities were) and a 2 min walk to the beach. The hotel has a sister property right down the street that has a pool - we did not go this time but have actually stayed at that hotel in the past. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the fact it was a eco-hotel was kind of neat.
The room are small, the bed is kind of strange, and the shower door wouldn't close so water was all over the bathroom floor. But it was clean, had a fridge (to hold all of our pregame drinks before going out!), and was close to the beach. There is also a small place to get food in the lobby - it's expensive but it is there if you need it.

I reserved a room at the clifton for my boss and myself after reading the reviews and hearing that the property was "leed certified" which is amazing for a hotel. My company recycles office supplies and such but clifton goes far beyond. The staff was good, friendly and knew the area, location we couldn't ask for a better place but hands down the beds are the best I have ever slept in at a hotel. My boss liked it so much we are now staying here every trip. Only negative I have is the rooms are smaller than typical hotel but I guess thats because of the historic building.

Green Features: We chose this hotel because it was LEED certified, if you stay here read about how it is eco friendly you'll be impressed.
