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.

Great location and very clean

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!

Good and perfectly located

Had a night at this hotel on Espanola way. The location is just perfect. 5 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes to the Lincoln Mall. The rooms and hotel are a bit old but everything was clean. Nice personal both at the desk and the room maids. They where nice and smiling and had answers to the questions we had. The only thing that was negative was the breakfast. Well, we had to go to another location at the street and was served some kind of continental breakfast in a plastic tray just as on a plane. That could be done better, without having extra cost for the hotel. There were so many things that was just thrown out, because you could n´t decide what to have in the tray. But as I wrote in the beginning a nice hotel on a charming Spanish street in South beach. Shape up with the breakfast and I would recommend it to everyone visiting Miami Beach

Perfect for true SoBe Experience

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!

Unique and awesome place

The hotel was broken up and confusing with lack of staff to help direct, there was also remodeling in our building which looked half done with carpet ripped up in spots throughout the building, if they did a section at a time it would have looked less trashy. But the room was fantastic, perfectly laid out, amazing modern and unique fixtures, quiet, clean, really enjoyed the stay a lot, the location was perfect alongside my favorite Cuban restaurant in south beach, was an amazing get away.

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.
