“Room 201 gave us Great Beach & People Views!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We were a bit hesitant checking in since we knew the lobby was razor thin, and it was, but when were notified that we had been upgraded to front beach-view room we were feeling pretty upbeat..and it continued when we saw the big twin corner windows looking out to the beach & activities! And, the room was very large..with 9 feet of extra room at foot of bed so to move around..plus a sofa/2 chairs, small fridge, nice double sliding door closet with upper shelf..and the rest room was updated with nice Italian-looking marble tile (ceiling too). Oh, had hot water on demand..nicest car parking service attendant out front..and plenty of nearby sidewalk cafes to dine morning or night. We were attending the Clemson/Ohio St Orange Bowl Game 12 miles away, and it was easy to get car & return it in AM to lobby staff. A surprise..and the best price we found in that two block area due to Holiday period.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach front room on 2 or 3rd floor..and don't worry about the Wet Willie's next do...

We have spent only 1 night in this hotel even if originally we wanted to spend more. The staff (mainly the manager) was very unfriendly and event aggressive. The shower didn't work and in order to take a shower we were told to use other room which was just left but other guests so we took the shower in the dirty bathroom. In general the place is not very clean and old. The rooms are very noisy and small.

In the middle of everything on the south beach, this hotel is in an excellent location, with the beach right across. You may find better deals for a block or two away from the beach.

The rooms were small, but were clean and comfortable. Unlike other reviews, housekeeping was done to our rooms. There was no disturbing noise from the cafe downstairs or ocean drive. Beach towels are available. Ocean view room did not add much because of the park in between(may be rooms on higher levels have a good view). The cafe is okay and a bit pricey for what you get.

We made two separate bookings and they wanted us to shift rooms. Despite informing, they called us during the day and asked us to shift. But they were helpful in packing our things and keeping it safe until we returned to check-in to the new room.

Overall, a stay with not much to complain...

Stayed at this hotel for 10 days. The room was neat, clean and the price was right!! There was a mini-refridgerator, microwave, flat screen TV, two beds, sofa bed, small table and chair; bathroom was nice. We had an ocean view room which was lovely. Looked out the window everyday and saw lots of activity, it was great. If staying in an ocean view room though, then you may have to contend with some late night noise coming from the street down below. The noise isn't so loud though, so don't worry; it's part of the Ocean Drive ambience.

The maid and front desk staff were courteous. Check-in and Check-out was quick and convenient (We had late night checkin (1:30am) and checkout (1:00am) with no problems). (There is a $US100 deposit that would be returned to you at the end of your stay provided that you return their apartment in the same condition you met it.) Note one thing about the restaurant staff at this hotel and all the other restaurants that line Ocean Drive though: they literally beg and lure you to eat at their establishment! (Tip: Just cross the road to avoid all the heckling.)

We generally have no complaints really about the place though. Its a standard hotel, nothing fancy. It did its job of providing a comfortable roof over our head while in Miami. We pretty much were never in the room anyway as we went shopping everyday (Dolphin Mall, Aventura Mall and Sawgrass Mills to name a few!!) The location was perfect. Within walking distance to everything such as restaurants, groceries, supermarkets, cinema, stores and the beach. If you want to venture outside of South Beach, transportation is also easily accessible if you walk to Washington Avenue. You can take a bus and head into downtown or any other location. (Tip: Purchase an Easy Ticket for the bus as it will save you time and money if you plan to make many trips using the bus. Having a smartphone with GPS also comes in handy).

I have no hesitation in recommending this place for those looking for a no-fuss, reasonably priced accommodation on Ocean Drive, South Beach.

Room Tip: The rooms with the ocean view are nice, but may be closer to the noise on the street.

I was in Miami for 3 days and this was the hotel my friend has booked for us. The hotel was very underwhelming. The staff were not the least bit concerned with our needs. (asking for extra pillows wasn't an option seemingly) The lobby was constantly loud throughout the night (somewhat understandable for being on oceans drive, but I didn't enjoy it.) If you have the extra money I'd recommend staying somewhere with more amenities. This place isn't bad if you plan on spending no time in the room.

We stayed in Starlite hotel for 2 nights in January 2013. Location was excellent, ocean view room.
Room was clean and tidy and very spacious. Check in was quick and easy, staff were friendly enough, tried to sell us a few day trips but i guess thats all part of the job.
Loud outside at night but to be expected as surrounded by bars open to all hours.
For the price of other hotels around this, starlite will not be beaten on price for location you cant ask for anything better.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for ocean view

Stayed with family members for 3 days. Check in was quick, only due to having made reservations and the room was big with a huge King size bed, which took up 50% of the room, Air worked great. Mini-fridge was above average as the food was kept COLD not cool. Bathroom light was buggy as I had to keep clicking back and forth to get light to turn on. Now on to the bad. Service. You will be LUCKY to get towels for your room!! They seem to be in short supply and we literally had to WASH THEIR WASHCLOTHS AND TOWELS in order to have some available for us!! Also after 4 PM, FORGET ABOUT HOUSEKEEPING!! They are gone until the next morning and the management staff is no help. The only positive and that its free laundry and dry as you use their washing machine and drier (We ended up using their bleach and washing powder as well as we figured since we weren't getting paid to wash their towels) While the location is in the middle of everything, beware of being overcharged by the restaurants outside the hotel. ALWAYS ASK IF YOU DON'T SEE A PRICE! We ended up paying $12.00 for a Non-Alcoholic Strawberry smoothie!!! If you need a cheap place to crash, its a good spot. other than that. You'll need to come out of your pocket!!

Room Tip: Right in the middle of everything across from the Ocean and beach.
