My cousin and I went for a girls trip and the room ended up being a bit more decorated for romance, it made us laugh a lot. The location was great and the trip was wonderful!

The stay was ok. You have to make sure you get there at check in time and not earlier. I had to waste a lot of time when I really wanted to rest. The rooms are great.

Don't do it!

Would not recommend Sat, Apr 25, 2015
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!

Excellent !!!!

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
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 !

Great overnight stay

Would recommend Sun, Jan 25, 2015
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.
