Good 7.8 From 485 reviews

Very good 8.0
Okay
Could be a great hotel if they spent some of what they charge to stay there in fixing it up. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Parking is expensive.
Kelly, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
perfect location for a one night stay
Great location we were arriving late at night and only staying one night so didnt want to waste money on a nice hotel as we would not be in it long. For that it was fine. If you are on a tight budget or young couple this is a ideal hotel for you as the location is great. Staff helpfull and breakfast options good. All those who say the hotel breakfast was cold, the reason for this if you are listening hotel is that you have the fans on behind the burners heating the food trays so its blowing all the heat away if you reverse your breakfast layout you will avoid this.

Good Little Hotel close to the beach
Great Location and Comfortable Room. Friendly Staff and Nice Welcome Drinks.
DANIEL, ie1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Good location, cold breakfast
Was ok for our needs (a couple of days stay before flying back to UK from MIA) but would say more geared towards couples rather than families. Room was very small - couldn't open bathroom door if someone on toilet!!! Also, the safe was not secure - wasn't bolted to anything meaning I could lift it up!! The real disappointment was the breakfast - the selection was actually very good with egg, bacon or sausage, hash browns, toast, bagels, fresh waffles etc; however, the hot food was cold even when we came down for breakfast at 7:45 on the second day (breakfast started at 7:30). On the positive side, location was excellent for the beach and use of cool little rooftop swimming pool at sister hotel behind it.
Michael, gb2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great little stay!
Great location on Ocean Drive right by SouthBeach! This is next to so many little restaurants and you are steps from the beach. The cons were a very hard bed, if they upgrade it would of been an amazing little stay. The place was very clean, perfect for a cheap getaway. Room and bathroom was small but just right. Breakfast and complimentary drink for each guest was provided. Parking is not great anywhere on ocean drive but there is a parking lot around the corner that will let you park for $40 from check in time 3:00p to 1:00p next day if you ask them! Otherwise most places charge $20 for 4-5 hours or you have to get out of the garage at 5am.
