I often come to Miami. It was 2nd chance to stay in catalina. I stayed in few 5star hotel's in Miami before , but if you are here just for fun and wanna enjoy 24hrs a day . Please go to this hotel . I can say the best in south beach. 7 to 9 pm
free drinks , amazing n sexy crowd, freindly staff, nice rooms, good pool, delicious restaurants. But if u think u wanna hotel just for sleep , please don't go to this hotel , I should say please don't go to south beach.
, suggestions : not for the family
Perfect Location, Good Food but Disappointing Rooms.
Awesome location for the price. Just walk across the street to the Beach, shopping and food. The two restaurents infront of the Hotel serve good food. Complementary amenities like bicycles, laptops, pool chairs and Happy hour cocktails are
awesome. But the down side is the hotel smells alcohol and mold through out. The corridors are dingy and smelly. We were checked in to a dirty room but the Front desk guy was quick to give us a clean room. Because of the mold smell, even the room was clean, we dint get the fresh feeling in the room. Over all not bad for the price.
The hotel is very nice with a real south beach ambiance.. If your ur staying in the on a budget rooms though if you need double beds there's a 30 dollar extra a day charge.. Also the rooms towards the front by the lobby are very noisy from about
3pm to 5 am so ask for a quiet room if you like to sleep between those hours.. Other than that the hotel was very nice clean and big enough for a weekend trip.. there's a restaurant next doors called Maxine's open 24 hrs which is very good..
This hotel is in a great location. The beach is only minutes away. There is shopping and eateries near by. It was real easy to get a cab. The rooms are small and the bathroom was real small. The hotel was small in general only two floors with
paper thin walls. The decor was red and white everywhere. The king size bed was really comfy, my husband and I got a good night sleep on that bed. The bellboy dirtied my husband tote bag with white paint because there was also painting going on. Free happy hour only included vodka, rum, and gin mixed with anything, no beer. Pool was around the back and not on the roof. No free breakfast or anything.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
We ate at Tap Tap restaurant... Waste of money
Groovy pizza down the street was yummy.
We had a old coil mattress that was super squeaky. I thought we would have tempur pedic mattresses like it said in the room description. Huge deal breaker for me. I need a good nights sleep.
Staff was friendly, great location right in the middle
Parking was $35/day or you could self park two blocks away.
Overall my experience at this hotel went well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and met expectations as outlined on website.
The location is great, close to South Beach, shops on Lincoln/Collins, and steps away from Ocean Dr. The
restaurants at the hotel have great food as well for decent prices. Pretty good bang for your buck.
The only down side was that we were given the wrong room on the first night of our stay (a much smaller room in size and less in price). And after several attempts to contact the manager with no response, we were not compensated in any way for this error on the hotel's part.
