Pre-Cruise Stay

Would recommend Fri, Sep 18, 2015
My husband and I stayed at The Clay the night before boarding our cruise. We stayed here for our last cruise and enjoyed it. The Clay is smack down in the middle of South Miami Beach nightlife on The Espaniola Way, a street lined with restaurants. Expect lots of late evening noise and excitement. If you want an exciting change to your hum-drum normal life then this is the place to be. The room is just large enough for the queen size bed, small desk and small TV, microwave and small fridge. The Clay property includes 3-4 buildings along the same street which they have renovated into clean and contemporary rooms. I liked the bathroom especially. Since our last stay, a complimentary continental breakfast has been added to their amenities. Very nice and appreciated. Very good value for just a one-night stay!

I've stayed here whenever I am in South Beach. It's of great value, clean, & offers speedy wifi (available everywhere), comfortable beds, good toiletries, & central to many of the places you will end up going to.

Great location for a decent price. The only bad thing was that the lobby and room were not connected, so we had to walk a bit to get to our room with our bags but the staff was nice and friendly and I did like the location of the room as well as the view.

Great location, small rooms..

Would recommend Thu, Jul 16, 2015
Espanola Way is fun in South Beach, Miami and The Clay Hotel is in the corner of this way.The hotel has a strange concept, where the front desk is located right at Washington Ave, and the rooms are all located in sequence of 1 or 2 floors buildings along Española Way. The location couldn't be better: on South Beach and in a way I would say its quiet economical.

Would recommend Sun, Apr 19, 2015
My husband and I love the Clay Hotel. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. We also loved the location near all shops and restaurants on Hispaniola Way. Not noisy either, considering the nightlife nearby. I highly recommend it for an economical yet comfortable stay!

Perfect for true SoBe Experience

Would recommend Tue, Feb 24, 2015
Staff was super friendly and helpful showing us to our room. The room was confusing to get to but a staff member stopped what they were doing and with out a problem walked us up. I honestly have not had a good experience with hotel staff in a longgggg time. Breakfast was good as well packaged so you could take back up to hotel, nap more, then eat. Only negative was the loud music. I can sleep through a lot of things though so if you are a light sleeper I would recommend not even staying on SoBe unless you stay further down the boring side of the strip. Would definitely recommend to a friend!
