ATTN: Miami Board Of Health -- SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN

This place should not be open - PERIOD!! The place is in dangerous state of construction!! Stay away!! -No AC / Can't open windows / Room smelled of rotting feces and cigarettes. -Elevator is unsafe - Floor numbers held up by duct tape, 1' gap between elevator door and foundation. Wood splinters coming up from the floor. -Rugs in hallway we're dirty and last washed in the 90's -- Graffiti throughout the hallways. -Odd sized Windows dangerously replacing wrong size windows -- I opened a window and and fell out cus it's too small and almost impaled me. -Pool shut down for construction -South Beach entrance shut down for construction -No parking -Staff not familiar with area or suggestions on where to park. -When we called on the AC, they said they would "fix it from a different room". And this was the first 10 mins. I grabbed my GF and headed to a beautiful hotel around the corner! I cannot believe this place is still open in this state... PLEASE SAVE THE TIME and pay the extra $60-100/night for safe place!!!

not good

when my girlfriend and i first got there we knew right away that we were not lucky in picking out this hotel. looked old.. smelled old.. lots of construction and run down rooms throughout. you can hear the toilets flushing from all around. the toilet in the room is so far against the wall that you cant even sit straight up on it.. have to lean to the side. just wasnt happy...

Continental Oceanfront Review

I don't know if we got lucky or what, but the reviews we had read for this hotel were awful. That was not our experience at all. Granted, going to the hotel, we saw boarded up windows and got scared, but our room was very spacious and very nice like a regular hotel. Rooms were clean and staff did a very good job of room service like any regular hotel. Nonetheless, this is not the place you go to for the hotel itself: there is no life in the lobby, no bar, and no one goes to the pool. What you do go there for is to get a cheap rate for a very good location. Unless you have a car (in which case you'd also need a DD), places like Shelbourne, RED, and Fontainebleau are very far away from all the clubs that people go to (except for Liv, which is in the Fontainebleau) and from the heart of Ocean Drive. So, that's what you're paying for with this hotel and I definitely enjoyed it.

Air Conditioning Broke

Tried to check in early and they said to come back at normal check in time at 4pm. They didn't say at the time the air conditioning was broke since 9am, so I could have tried to find another hotel. Air conditioning was not fixed until midnight which was a big inconvenience. The halls smelled like cat urine. This hotel needs to be knocked down or completely renovated. Perfect location but that's it!
