Not too good

Unfriendly staff, not very helpful. Smelly room with terrible view. Only good thing about this place is a great location.

Mixed blessings.

The South Seas is a rehabbed older hotel with small, albeit nicely furnished rooms and really small, but very functional bathrooms. Overnight stay comes with a breakfast buffet including various breads and cereals as well as cold hard-boiled eggs, ham and cheese. The hotel's free WiFi connection was disappointingly slow, especially in the evenings and clearly needs to be upgraded.

"Amazing Trip"

Did some shopping, swam in the sea and went to Aventura Mall. Shops are pretty close to the hotel.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Prime One Twelve. (Best Restaurant in Miami). Known for its good quality food and awesome reputation, don't be surprised if you crushed into celebrities on your way into the restaurant.

Great hotel and service.

Excellent location and close to the shops and good restaurants. Lots to do in South Miami Beach. If you like great shopping, entertainment and great beaches then this is the place to be. We had a fantastic time!!

Great Location but smaller than expected

I went for a girls weekend and loved the location of the hotel (close enough to the action but far enough away that is was quiet and relaxing). We hung out by the pool during the day and went out at night to experience all south beach had to offer. We had a great time but the hotel was smaller than expected and not so art deco. They would have been better off with an antique type theme with their old time photos and original fixtures on doors and such. Rooms were adaquate but again nothing to write home about.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

If you are relaxing by the pool for the day food and drinks can add up. We recommend going to local stores to load up on your own snacks and drinks.

great location, friendly staff. QUIET

Right on the beach. Great location AND quiet. The only drawback was the "fitness center," which consisted of a treadmill, old beat up stationary bicycle and small hand weights tucked behind the pool with no AC. Great, friendly staff. Clean rooms. Apple Ipod radio great!

Great local for business at Miami Conven

Great location for Miami Convention Center, Lincoln Road & Ocean retaurants! Smallish rooms, but fine - could use a little clean up in bathrooms & definitely new towels! Staff was great, resturant fine & breakfast just right. Would stay again.

Good pic for young couples

The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of pretty much everything (shopping, food, clubs, liquor stores, 24 hour convenience stores and so on!) and right on the bus line if you need to travel further. Also, right on the beach. Hotel has continental breakfast (bagels, cereal, fruit, etc.). The staff was friendly as well. The only thing was that the pool/bar area closed at about 9pm on weekends, so instead of just being able to walk through the back of the hotel like you can during the day, you have to walk all the way around the block to get to the beach/ boardwalk if you want to go for a nice romantic night stroll . Also this rules out dining options within the hotel at night as far as their restaurant is concerned. This is a minor inconvenience for what you get, but still just FYI! I would recommend staying here b/c it is reasonably priced and cannot emphasize enough, an excellent location. The rooms aren't huge and no fridge or microwave, but if you're there as a couple or with a few friends, it's fine, and the view is nice. You won't be staying in the room much anyway!

Also short walk (about 10 minutes) to shops and more restaurants on Lincoln Ave., which is like the strip at night! Go!

Great location

The staff was very helpful and attentive. The location was great right in the middle of all the action and is right across from the beach. Fro the price you can't ask for more.
