“Nice little hotel that's in the midst of being upgraded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Despite the several bad reviews written about this hotel, this hotel was quite comfortable. On the exterior, the hotel could use some polishing. Your initial viewing of the outside of the hotel may lead you to think the hotel is a dump, but once you enter the lobby area and see the rooms, you'll see that the hotel is quite nice. Me and my fiance found the hotel to be very clean and it was very close to restaurants, bars, the beach, Walgreens, etc.. There is wi-fi but you have to ask for the password from the front desk. The maid cleaned our room everyday and supplied fresh towels. There is a small pool, but we didn't swim in it. The front desk personnel are very friendly and very knowledgeable about the area if you have any questions. The room we had was a premium king room and it was kind of small but the cleanliness made up for it. The room had a refrigerator that turned out to be very sufficient. The AC was great. The supply of hot water varied - during the evening and early morning, there was hot water but during the afternoon, the water was cold. The only noise we heard was the occasional door slamming from other people rooms, but if you have the AC on, that noise will be drowned out. Finally, the king size bed was absolutely amazing! Felt like one of those pillow-top mattresses.. I had some outstanding sleep. Oh and the rooms does not come with microwaves and irons. There is one iron that floats around from room to room - you'll have to check with the front desk. One downside is that in the room we had, the door didn't have a peep-hole. If someone knocked on our door, there was no way to see who it was knocking! Overall, I would definitely stay at this hotel again because it was clean, had a knowledgeable staff that spoke more than one language, and it was close to a lot of bars, shops, and restaurants, and the beach!

This cute hotel has clean new remodeled room. Recommend taking a bus to South Beach only $2; Cab cost around $20. This hotel is located across the street from the beach and has coffee/bars/grocery store near by. Friendly staff (:

Horrible hotel. We left the room on time and neatly as possible. upon checkout, they informed us that everything is fine..however, weeks later, I received a charge for dirty towels. Great. towels are used to clean and be cleaned. The rooms were small and the service is unsatisfactory. They staff is very rude. Ive called several times to take care of this manner. The manager is there when she wants, yells, hangs up, and lies. First it was a late fee, now dirty towels.

Upon entering the room, they had a view of the back alley. Nice! The flooring looked fine but it is not carpeted any where so whenever anyone moves a chair or goes down the corridor with a case it makes a lot of noise.

The shower wouldn't drain. When the guy came to the room, he barely spoke english. He eventually got out that there was no maintenance on duty and they would be unable to fix. Then the toilet wouldn't flush. We were informed the same thing. We were moved to another room and in that one the sink wouldn't drain very well so there is trouble with their pipes.

My girlfriend wasn't happy that there was only one mirror in the whole room which was in the bathroom. While the rooms are decent size, it takes longer to get ready with no second mirror.

The customer service was poor. One of the night staff was pretty good but other than that it was poor. We weren't asked on check out how our stay was. I wonder why?

In comparison, we stayed in Orlando for half the price. The place had a restraunt, gym, and jacuzzi. This place had none of that and the customer service was far superior. Avoid this place like the plague.

We where there for 6 nights, early in the morning there was always multiple noise coming either from a big construction in the front, either from the maids cleaning the corridor...simple the windows aren't noise tight!
The rest was simple but functional. Personal not caring

Room Tip: No way, pr you are an early bird, or let it be...

We stayed at the Collins Hotel 8 days while on vacation. 10/16-10/24 Hotel was very clean, modern and the staff was very nice and helpfull. We ask for two extra bath towles and the housekeeping had no problem giving us extra towles.

I Would recomemnd this hotel to anyone who wants a nice and clean hotel.

My final coment is to the staff at the Collins Hotel is "Keep up the good work"

The Collins Hotel is all what you need when you go to Miami, great access to interesting places such malls and beach. The price is perfect and the service was great. All the staff was always very nice. The rooms were very clean, as well as towels, sheets, etc. Also the amenities are from bath and body works, which was nice. And the wifi was a bonus! I hope I will be back son :)

Room Tip: Corner suites are large, and have a huge closet. Also they are quieter N.239 great!
