The only good thing I can say about this hotel is a bartender that helped us out. It was his second shift, young, chill, nice guy! Other then that room service was horrible! I went looking for an ice machine on my floor and I was told to go to
other floors too look....... so I did and no ice on any floor then when I went back to the front desk I was told to go to the hotel next door! REALLY GUYS?!?!?! Don't get me started on breakfast! Breakfast ends at 10:30am we got there at 10:15am the server made a HUGE deal about it almost not wanting to serve us. I can not believe this hotel is still in business! I wish I could get my money back. Worst service I have ever had!
My Girlfriend and I just returned from a week at the Penquin Hotel. We are 40 year old Adults . We found the Staff , treated us like Family, great breakfast service enjoying the porch. All bartenders made GREAT drinks throughout the day and
evening. Also , boxed lunches from the menu anytime during the day for us to take to the beach, YUM! We really liked how quiet the hotel was at night for sleeping, No Loud music, Screaming teenagers, and Loud cars. The BAD time was the garbage truck at 630am Every day ! The Beach across the street was so inviting! Went there at least 6-8 hours everyday . We are looking forward to our next time there ! ENJOY !
This is a great location to enjoy South Beach, especially if you don't need the high-end Miami experience, and simply want a clean, convenient, comfortable, authentic Deco place as home base while you visit. It's toward the northern end of Ocean
Drive right on the beach, provides two free welcome drinks, free wifi, and free continental breakfast with a Lummus Park-front Starbucks with patios a half block away, a few blocks from Espanola, a few blocks from Lincoln Road, a few blocks from the busiest hotels/restaurants on Ocean Drive. Very nice staff, comfortable room. Easily recommendable.
Room was small but most are down there... not to sound proof you can hear every conversation going on in the hallways.. Food was good at restaurant but drinks were on the weak side, I love the beach and the fact that you can leave your car there
till 4pm after check out.
I was extremely happy with the location of hotel Original room next to staircase but I asked for different room which I received. No ocean view but that wasn't expected. Room was old and somewhat dirty. Toilet wasn't easy to flush! Shower head
from 70s you could pull off bracket NO ESPN on cable! Gotta have Sportscaster late night/early morning!
