Recent guest reviews

Hotel was clean overall. Nice employees. Simple as stated

This hotel is in the middle of renovations. We ended up getting upgraded because we got there so early and the only available room was the upgrade but NOT renovated. We didn't mind. It was a great room and had that retro Miami feel to it. It was really large (on the 5th floor), ocean view with a huge balcony and bathroom. The shower was tiny tho so it was hard to shave! Floor was dirty. Had to wear shoes in the room, which I hate having to do in a hotel. Also the AC was leaking a little bit so had to be careful not to put any of our shoes or luggage beneath it. But the balcony and view made up for all this. We only spent one night here so we put up with it. It was also in a great location. Right on Ocean Drive, in the middle of where all the action is, but farther down so you're not right where the mess is. Was convenient to walk home from Mangos/Hookah at 4:00am! The front desk girl and guy we met were very friendly. They also give you access to a pool a block down where Sugar Factory is. That was a nice touch. We went straight to the pool, ordered a Sugar Factory drink, and stayed there for a few hours. Loved it. Pool overlooks Ocean Drive and the beach. The little "courtyard" they have in front is really cute too. Hard to explain but you go up a few steps from Ocean Drive sidewalk, and there's a courtyard with tables and seating (restaurants are there) and the entrance to the hotel is towards the back. It was really really cute. Loved the feel of it.

Will Smith has it right, South Beach is the hottest beach in the USA. That the the Ocean Hotel is a great location to enjoy it from. We stayed in the Penthouse Room which is the totally cool. Large and luxurious with a private elevator and private balconies. Views are 360 degrees to the beach and town. Only complaint was the noise of the elevator but that was a small price to pay for staying in what may be the gitchiest room around. To top it off, the world cup was in progress, so being in multicultural Sobe to enjoy the energy and spirit of competition between the many nations represented by the staff and visitors to the beach was the icing on an awesome, sexy, fun, ultimately hot weekend in Miami. Thank you Hotel Ocean!
