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.

Good Winter Escape

A friend of mine and I were desperate to escape the New York winter and the South Seas provided a welcome respite. The room was clean and quiet, the staff friendly and the pool lovely. It's great that it's right on the beach and the continental breakfast (included) was adequate--although the coffee flavored water could've been better. The only real negative is having to pay for pretty poorly maintained seat on the beach.

There's a great spa on Lincoln Rd., Spa e, that's worth a stop for a pedicure or facial.

South Seas Experience

This hotel was great. It is located only a few steps from the beach and has a great pool/bar area. It is also conveniently located next to many good local bars and hang outs. The only problem I had was the valet service, which took over an hour to get my vehicle. I notified the front desk and they promptly removed the valet charge. I would recommend this hotel and would likely stay there again.

perfect place to stay in South Beach

The hotel staff were very attentive and friendly. The pool and beach area were lovely, as was the simple but adequate included breakfast which could be eaten inside or at the poolside. The hallways were kind of dingy, and the room was tiny (328), but the bed was nicely made and comfortable. Since we didn't spend much time in the room, we didn't care about its size. Aside from the great staff, the star feature of this hotel is that it is at the end of South Beach, so didn't get any noise at night. The neighborhood was busy but nice. We could walk anywhere to and from South Beach, so didn't need the car which we left in valet parking at the hotel.

Weekend Getaway

Nice small hotel on the beach. Friendly staff, close to everything. Free continental breakfast was good as Miami is very expensive.

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!

Relaxing Trip for Two

"This Winter Is Awful" "Why do we even live in Chicago?" "AHHHHHGHGHGH!!!" That lead us to the South Seas, and we couldn't of been happier. It was the perfect place for a couple (or family from what we observed) who wants to be on a beach, but doesn't need to be caught up in an all day rave. We had a great time relaxing at the pool, walking to the beach, hanging in the hammocks, and drinkings the tropical drinks! At the South Seas there is a good mix of young couples, young parents, singles, and those 50+. You Won't Regret Your Trip!

South Beach getaway

It was like entering paradise through the hammocks & spa areas right to South Beach! Fantastic location. Wonderful walk way just behind hotel along South Beach to Art Deco. Room was a bit small, but only used it for sleeping, we were out enjoying the 80s weather in April, South Beach and shopping all day. South Seas Hotel provided a good free breakfast for its guests.

Quite nice!

I was pleasantly surprised overall with the hotel. paid $20 extra for "beach view" room, which overlooked pool. the hotel is not fancy, but very well run, great location, clean, well-furnished room with good light--not overly large, but big enough for one person, or two. nice bathroom, very helpful staff. Nice pool. had a slightly musty feel in the hallways, but not bad. They even delivered the Sunday NY Times at my request! Pretty good value for money--although I don't know how other hotels stack up.
