Room was surprisingly cheap in one of the hottest destinations in the world. You cannot get any closer to South Beach than this, the hotel is right in the middle of it all on 8th and Ocean. It is next door to Wet Willy's, a popular South Beach Bar. If you get a room with a view you won't regret it. Just open the window and you have a front row seat to the Ferraris, Lamborghini, and of course the beautiful people... (though not always as beautiful as one might hope).
As far as the hotel itself... well, you get what you pay for in that regard. The staff was unfriendly, not very accommodating, and generally bummed out. Also, they changed the rate on us once we checked in versus what we reserved by 10 dollars a night. No biggie, but not a good practice. The room was small, not the cleanest, and had tile floors which became sticky and sandy very quickly. There was a small roach in the bathroom (yuk) and the maid smoked a cigarette outside our door upon checking out. yuk!
The room did have a nice sized fridge AND a microwave... Definitely a bonus!
All in all, I would stay here again simply because the price and location is unbeatable. If you want an affordable place to crash while partying on South Beach, this is it. If you want a nice hotel... well... you catch my drift.
