Clevelander South Beach Hotel
Ranked #50 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 16, 2014

While in Miami Beach with my wife we stopped by here for drinks on three different occasions. I don't really like loud crowded places but heck your in Miami Beach and if you want atmosphere well then this place has lots of that. Drinks are expensive but if your here on weekdays you can catch the happy hour and for three hours the beers were three dollars and the other drinks were on special too. They have girls dancing in the evening and there was always something to see. This was our favorite place in Miami Beach for sure. I did not stay in the hotel so I cannot give a review on that but because we like the bar so much the next time we are in Miami Beach we will stay at this hotel for sure.

If you are looking for a genuine South Beach experience, with energy and flair added to the mix, this is the place for you..the renovations are stunning! The room was edgy and modern but very comfortable - the staff were consistently some of the most welcoming we have ever encountered...young, full of energy and fun...we ate and drank at the hotel's facilities and were very pleased...let me ask you this - what could set a better tone for your stay in South Beach than a pina colada handed to you as you check in!?? Will be back for sure...

We had an amazing experience. The front desk staff, Jamal, was very helpful and accommodating. We had to leave our other hotel in the middle of the night because of bed bugs and he helped us out and made us feel at home. The hotel was very nice, fun and in the heart of south beach.

I don't waste time with reviews, but Clevelander deserves it.

The best place to have drinks and people watch in Miami Beach, the employees are all cool, just walk in and they are all smiling. entrance is free, no dress code, no red ropes, no b**s like all the other places on the Beach.

I'm a local and I go to the Clevelander. Even the owner Mike P is cool, he is always speaking with guests making sure all details and everyone has a good time.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: they installed noise proof windows so its quiet even with a pool view, all rooms are cool, always ha...

Great hotel with excellent people watching. We were visiting for our anniversary which also happened to be Art Deco wknd. We arrived early Friday and our room wasn't ready so we drank at the pool bar for a couple hours and people watched. Be careful-the $2 doubles will hit you FAST but it's a great deal. We found that the clevelander had cheaper and stronger drinks than other bars. The food is greasy and delicious too. Our room was ready around 3pm. We were kinda disappointed they didn't do anything since we told them we were there celebrating our anniversary and that we met there 3 years ago. We weren't expecting anything but it would have been a nice touch. Anyways-we stayed in room 203. The room is on the front corner of the hotel facing ocean dr and the pool area. Do not stay there unless you plan to party until 4am every night. The bass and music was so loud but we used ear plugs and usually were tipsy when we went to bed so that helped. The rooms are small but updated and modern with clean sleek lines. The front desk was helpful and accommodating. Overall a great stay. We will return but probably won't stay there again just due to the noise.

probable a lot of fun if your young and interested in partying all night. Heard everyone all night long on the 4th floor. So much security, guys dressed in black at every door, made me wonder what went on. Street was closed, had to drag suitcases in from parking structure, to Ocean entrance. The boys in black wouldn't let us cut in side. Friday night with suitcases on Ocean. lots of fun. (not) Room small, ocean view was pretty, directly east. Air conditioner frigid, couldn't adjust to warm up. The guys at check in were terrific, personable and very helpful. We were going to stay 4 days but opted out after 2 for a quieter place. no issues with checking out except parking. We had to use the parking structure behind hotel; we were told that they had agreement with hotel. they made us pay the full 4 days upfront. no refund when we left early. my suggestion would be to just pay them by the day as hotel guest, in case your plans change.

While spending an afternoon in Miami Beach for the first time in our lives, we passed by the Clevelander which has a large outdoor restaurant bar. What caught our attention was the GoGo dancers that were performing on several of the mini-stages.

We had some time to kill so sat down and enjoyed the entertainment. The waitstaff was quite friendly and the entrainment was fun.

We read about the larger entertainment floor and wished that we could have stayed to enjoy some of South Beach night life. We hope that during our next visit we can spend an evening enjoying what should be a wonderful time.
