Free high-speed wireless Internet access and affordable breakfast also are offered.

Most of the 48 rooms at the Colony Hotel are best suited for couples with a queen or two double beds.

Book a suite for extra space and a view overlooking South Beach. Free high-speed wireless Internet access is available at the Colony Hotel.

Features

The Colony Hotel has the makings of an original Miami vacation. The beach beckons just a block away (grab a beach towel from the front desk on the way out). The neon façade casts a glamorous glow on the revelers who gather on the sidewalk bistro after nightfall. Amenities at the Colony Hotel include valet parking and a concierge who provides club discount passes and tour information.

Roach Hotel

This hotel is the best for location. However, the rooms are much too small,and we saw roaches on the bar area downstairs. I would never eat from this hotel. Maintance for the rooms were good, and the rooms were cleaned well. If your looking for the best location stay here, but you must realize everything else falls short.

unbeatable location for the price

Parking is a problem in South Beach but it was nice to have the Valet park the car at a flat rate of $22 for in / out. The hotel and the furniture is a bit old but the room was clean enough to hang your hat. Staff was very nice. I would go there again. You walk out the door and you're on the strip.

Miami Beach - overpriced

didn't know that I could park for free on the street with a disability plate: had to use valet parking. Fairly good response. No space in the bathroom to put your things. Small shower with shower curtain rod placed too high, permitting too much water on the floor, and the rod was barely holding the curtain. Except for mold, clean enough. Seat on toilet loose. Asked for seat and mold to be cleaned up. not done. I'd give it a one star

Great price, nice clean hotel.

Great location for the price. The rooms were clean and cozy. The ac wasn't as good as it should be but good enough. It was not as noisy as we thought it would be for being on ocean drive. If you don't have very loud neighbors, it's great. It doesn't have a pool or anything resort like but at least there is no resort fee. It's close to restaurants and 15 mins to good clubs. Nice hotel.
