Nestled on the corner of quaint Espanola Way and Washington Avenue, The Clay Hotel is a jewel among places to stay in the historic Art Deco District of Miami Beach. Twenty- four hours a day, you can step through wood carved French doors into the cool, terra cotta tiled lobby where you'll be greeted by our multi lingual staff at the front desk-the same desk that's been there since 1925. After you've checked in and unpacked your bags, take a stroll down Espanola Way and observe the exotic features that make this one of the most alluring streets in South Beach.

Sort of Cute

Ok I am writing this 2 years late but its still my valid opinion. This is definitely a 3 star hotel, very boutique. It lacks many amenities hotels nowadays have but you get just what you need for a short stay in South Beach. The architecture is very old style; and that's a good thing. You feel like you are in South Beach! While its no treasure I have no problem recommending anyone I know to stay here for the very nostalgic, sexy, scenic and inexpensive location.

Perfect for What I was Looking For

I had a wonderful experience at The Clay Hotel. Although my flight got in at 5AM, Miami time, and they couldn't guarantee my early check in, it actually worked out that I was able to hang out with some friends who were in town for the first half of my day. Once I officially made my way to South Beach, I was greeted warmly by the staff, set up properly in my room, and was given awesome treatment and tourist tips throughout! I will say that the room was very simple, so if you're looking for luxury, this might not be your first choice. However, I wanted a nice clean room to store my stuff and freshen up in while I explored Miami and drank rum on the beach. The room was clean - no creepy crawlies- the bed was very comfortable, the TV worked and had cable, and there was a fridge. The bathroom was small, but came with all the essentials, and some very nice smelling toiletries. Thus, for my entire package being less than $800, I was not disappointed. You also cannot beat the location!!! Right in the middle of AMAZING restaurants - seriously, you walk right out of the door into an alley of tapas bars and yummyness. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, and if you want to do shopping at almost any store you can think of, Lincoln Blvd is within walking distance. The night clubs and party spots are all within a short cab ride or walking distance as well! Come prepared to shake your tooshie!! The last day was the best! After I cleaned up and checked out, I asked the front desk man if I could store my bag in the luggage holding room and go to the beach for a couple hours. Not only did they hold my stuff [and gave me a ticket to claim], they called a cab for me as well! Needless to say, I can't wait to come back to Miami.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Most restaurants charge an automatic 18-20% gratuity, even if you're dining alone. Also, alcohol is pretty expensive at the restaurants. Thus, I would suggest, if you enjoy libations the way I do, to visit one of the numerous liquor stores who provide cheap alcohol and keep your meals as meals. You'll be far happier when you're not spending $15 for a cup of juice.

Great one night stay...

This place is in a great location...waking distance to everything...the valet packing is the best...don't try to look for parking elsewhere...the street is closed for the night and lots of restaurants to choose from.

Great location, lovely & comfortable room

It's was second stay at the Clay. They finished renovating all their rooms so their rooms are tip top shape. Comfortable beds, AC works fab, room has a fridge, maybe a microwave (based on room type), bathroom are fitted (small but functional, clean, hot water, hair dryer), I stayed in their "standard" room in the far back building & it helped with avoiding the music from Espanola Way, I enjoyed my stay thoroughly as the clay is walking distance to Ocean Drive, Collins, the beach, many great places to eat/drink, close to Lincoln, & CVS/Walgreens. The value of the stay was just fantastic. No pool but the ocean is just two blocks away. The staff were accommodating & I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again next time.

Great location to party

The hotel experience was really good. It was actually my second time staying there in less than a year. Staff is really friendly, helpful, and polite. My particular room has complimentary coffee maker, a fridge, blow dryer, iron board & iron. Room was comfortable and decent size. Our rooms were cleaned everyday without any issues. Only thing I wish this hotel had was an ice machine. The location is great if you're trying to party and have fun. Many night clubs, several bars, tons of restaurants, and the beach is within walking distance. Many of the restaurants is pricey so if you're looking to save, try walking a little further down the road and you'll eventually find places to eat for cheap. Many convenient stores and liquor stores as well in the area. Hint hint, buy your own bottles to save money off those expensive drinks they serve on south beach. Many different business around this hotel so it shouldn't be any issue finding things. Overall, the hotel is very good and I would reccomend to anyone trying to stay close by to the action.
