Reviewed May 21, 2013

First of all, stayed for one night for a wedding nearby. Good location, very cheap at $100 a night. The room was clean and the beds and décor vey nice. Decent pool downstairs and someone at the desk at all hours (we got in at 4 am). Great free parking in a gated area (which is unheard of in Miami Beach). Nice stay. Only complaint is blinds that let in a lot of light, and a large dead cockroach on the bathroom floor.

I stayed there for 9 nights with a friend and we could see that it was totally worth it to choose this hotel. The rooms are spacious and the beds are really comfortable. The bathroom isn't very big, but it still had everything we needed. The swimming pool is quite small, but it was definetelly enough, as we preferred to lay on the beach, which is 2 minutes away from Collins Hotel. What I personally missed was a breakfast room, as they don't serve food at any time. So we had to bring our own breakfast everyday or just take it outside. The members of the staff have been very kind and helpful, specially Lissy, Julian and Michel. During our stay, we went to the Bahamas for 3 nights and they stored some of our luggage there, which we really appreciate. From the front desk, people can book some tours, we actually did a couple of them. The location is not the best, but there are buses that took us everywhere we needed (bus S get to South beach and downtown). We would totally recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed at a hotel facing the pool, which was very nice

I travelled with my best friend from Barcelona to Miami (it was our first trip together) and it was awesome. The rooms are bigger more than we expected and it was very clean everyday.
We went to Downtown and South Beach (near the hotel there is S bus which takes you to all these places). We toke some tours from the hotel such as Everglades and DisneyWorld from Orlando.
The staff was really helpful with us answering all our questions (how to get to everywhere, recommendations of restaurants and where to go out at night).
We really appreciate your attention to us from all of you. If we come back to Miami (probably we will do next year) we will stay with us again!

Room Tip: Estuvimos en dos habitaciones la 220 y la 230. Esta última era un poco más grande y con una ventana...

Easy to find on Collins, large and well-marked hotel frontage with large entry gates to FREE and safe parking. Hotel is modern, probably recently refurbished. We had a disabled facilities room, which we did not require but seems very practical if you do. Room was white, good king size bed, refrigerator etc. Only one desk chair so we could not both sit outside in the evening. Pool looked good although we didn't use it. Almost directly across the road is a track through to the beach, where we walked in the early morning. Receptionist spoke poor English but was helpful with free internet, free hot water for tea in room, also free ice machine.

Not so good:
- lights stayed on outside all night and blinds did not make the room dark
- noisy air con unit (aren't they all?)
- tiled floors so upstairs were a little noisy moving furniture, but luckily not late at night

This hotel is not near South beach but we drove around there and found meter parking easy.

We also walked the board walk both ways from 26th to 43rd (or somewhere near) which was really enjoyable.

The Brazilian Cafe next door to the hotel looked good and the portions were large, but a beer was 6 dollars with service and tax - no way!

Overall a good way to stay in Miami Beach area in a clean, reliable and modern hotel. Thanks

Room Tip: Get a room facing the pool (most are) but also get 2 chairs to sit out on - we had just one.

We booked a king room through bookit.com for $92/night plus tax prepaid. The hotel was full but our clean, recently renovated, room was held for us to arrive near midnight. The room was large enough for a comfortable king bed - nice firm mattress - two nightstands and dresser with a small refrigerator. Closet was large with plenty of hangers and shelves. Bathroom was clean with a large shower, no tub. Not much character - stark white walls - but plenty of outlets, good free wireless (got password at check in), flat screen TV with cable. Easy walk to public beach access at 65th & Collins. Parking in a gated lot right next to the lobby was a good value for mid-beach at $10/night. You need a car to get to South Beach but with several good restaurants, liquor stores, and a Publix nearby on Collins you won't starve or dir of thirst. The pool is clean and has plenty of chairs, some with shade. No coffee in rooms. The damage deposit was not authorized to our credit card - the desk clerk took an imprint of our card at check in. Since we are not college kids on spring break we do not expect to break or take anything. Our room faced Collins buy noise was not a problem

This hotel is in a good location if you don't mind being far from south beach. It is quieter here than on south beach but that does not mean that there are few restaurants. There is Thai, Chinese, Brazilian, Italian and Mexican food all within walking distance of the hotel.

This hotel has a quiet pool where one can read and take some sun. I saw few children and those who were there were well behaved. My room was a clean and quite comfortable King at the end of the hall on the top floor. The prices are reasonable as well, so I would return to this hotel in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at the Collins hotel. Location was a 2 minute walk to the beach, and near some restaurants and shops. The room was very plain, although it was clean. Parking was in a private lot and was $10 a night. The pool was small but not crowded and a nice place to sit after a day on the beach. The only complaint i have is that the air conditioner was not cooling the room down as much as I like.
