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.

No frills but nice and great location

The South Seas Hotel is a great place to stay. We found the hotel room was a little small, but it was clean and quiet. We liked the hotel's pool and hammock area, and beach access was convenient. The hotel is located in a quieter area of South Beach than we had previously stayed, and we found it a lot nicer because of that. Overall, a good experience.

Beautiful hotel but....

Beautiful hotel with clean rooms;direct access to the beach, very close to Ocean drive and lincoln Rd... Unfortunately spoilt by a 24h bar across Collins Av playing loud music almost all night long (windows not soundproof, bathroom window not shutting tight), somewhat careless staff (front desk staff very laid back, housekeeping staff never saying good morning, valet parking staff nice but sloppy). Breakfast was far below standards. Such a pity that the service is not up to the price!

Great location

The Hotel is located in a great area. Only 2 blocks from Lincoln Street Shops. The staff were nice and polite. The rooms need to be updated quickly, they are outdated and old. New carpet in the rooms and hallways are much needed,. As well as the room, bathroom and hallways need to be newly painted. The bathroom needs ckeaning. Overall the hotel was okay but probably wouldn't stay again unless the rooms were updated.

ok

[...] I ended up paying extra $$ for a cab both ways. The staff was nice, the beach is right outside the gated pool area which was very nice (the beach that is). The cushions on the pool lounge chairs were stained, time for new ones. The hotel wasn't a four star hotel in my opinion (3 star at most). The room was very small and not very clean (hairs in the bathroom, grime and dirt in the vents and corners) the rooms hair dryer didn't work and was gross w/ make-up all over the handle. I didn't care for the resturant in the hotel at all but there were plenty of resturants just outside.

A good room for the price

I would say it provided everything I expected for the price. The only thing I did not care for was the long black hairs left on the "cleaned" bathroom floor. I am a balding male and knew the hairs did not come from me.

Great Location

Location is great. Rooms are super TINY. Staff could be more welcoming upon check in. Free daily breakfast, towels and chairs are supplied which is great because it is unlike any hotel in the area, but you are not told ANY of this at check-in... If you need the bell captain upon checkout or your car from valet call about 40 minutes before you actually need to leave or you will be waiting all this time! Review your bill closely at checkout, extra restaurant charges and parking charges were added and front desk staff makes you feel as if they are doing you a favor to remove them from the bill, as if you are cheating or trying to get over on them! Since this staff is the first contact anyone has with the hotel I'd recommend REPLACING these two ladies!

First time visit

Great location, easy to get around, short walk to all the shops and cafes on Lincoln St. The room and bathroom were small due to the age of the hotel. All room views were of the hotel right next door locate 25 feet away! The elevators were extremely small and slow due to the age of the hotel. Pool was real nice and the cabanas and hammocks were all nice. And the ocean beach was real convenient. Staff was all pleasant. Breakfast was all continental, no hot food, just breads and fruit, cereal and yogurt.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

No need to rent a car. The local bus service and cabs are excellent. Hotel is right on the bus route. Easy to walk to everything. Walgreens is two blocks away if you need anything. Check out the Airport Express Bus 150 to get to and from the airport.
