Its ok not a fancy elegant room but its ok.. The manager or owner he's a great guy

Our overall experience at this hotel was very good. It's quiet, clean, not a wide-range breakfast but still pro for a hotel that close to the beach. The staff was nice and helpful (offered beach towels to lie on when at the beach). We had comfy beds, a small kitchen with a refrigerator, too.

Our experience was pleasant, perfect for a short stay. It included breakfast, comfy beds and great appliances.

Great location. The room was OK as far as comfort and cleaness. But the bathroom was very old, bathtub was painted, plumbing was rusted. We didn't dare using it to shower. The personnel was very friendly . Breakfast was awesome.

The location is great. Five minutes at the most walk to the beach. Very simple hotel. No ramp for suitcases and no elevator for suitcase either. Its only a 2 level but if your luggage is heavy, you have to take it upstairs by your self. No ice machine but if you ask staff in the office they will fill your bucket with ice. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bed very firm though. I was fine with it all but some people are much more picky though. Located right by Española avenue where the night life is. It was quite inside the room though. I would book again.

This hotel is in good location. Staff were very nice.

Good service and good people Very close to the ocean , free umbrella , parking almost free

Great little place! Proprietor was very nice. Great location, as well.

It was awesome, we were near to a lots of place like ocean drive or Shops.The breakfast was great too, but the shower was bad. The bed was perfect so perfect, we slept well. So we loved this hotel and Miami, thanks for everything..

perfect location, everything walking distance from the hotel. Staff is friendly.

Located nearby to both beach and SoBe bars; happily does not charge a resort fee unlike 99% of South Beach accommodations; good value for price paid compared to others around; would definitely return.

I honestly booked this hotel for the complimentary breakfast at the beginning. When I got there I wasn't sure what to expect cause of the mixed reviews I had read beforehand. I absolutely loved the hotel though. Sure, it's older than other hotels but that didn't bother me. The staff was very friendly and the location was wonderful. They also had extra beach towels and beach chairs/umbrellas to use at no cost. I'd definitely stay again.

Had a wonderful time here; staff was very accommodating when stuck because of northeast winter blizzards shutting down airports; not the glitziest place in south beach, but the relatively low prices for SoBe and comfortable rooms more than met my expectations.

I just needed a cheap hotel to stay. I would say if you are looking for a nice hotel experience I would look elsewhere. If you're looking to experience Miami Beach and just need a reasonable place to stay then this would be your place.

i love the location of hotel right in the middle of everything, I wish the had a place to park at

I would recommend this spot to anyone who is going to South Beach to party, shop, eat, party, go to the beach, and party! The room was clean, the AC worked (I even had to turn it down a little), and the hotel had a nice complimentary breakfast. The valet was $20/ night, and there was also metered parking on the street, and a parking lot a fewe blocks away for $20/night. We left our car with valet for the weekend and walked everywhere.

The hotel's website indicates that there is a social hour daily with complimentary wine and beer, but that was discontinued long before my stay.

This was a great place to "crash" at night after spending all day at the beach - convenient to the beach, shopping, and dining. The staff was very helpful and considerate of our needs. Our only real complaint was with the valet service, not the hotel - they were quite slow about coming to pick up the car, and the next morning were unable to start it when we wanted it back (they left the lights on all night - killed the battery).

Friendly staff..Mins from South Beach and other various night clubs. Zesto next door has great food and is fairly cheap. I would stay here again. Not a place for family but perfect for partying all night and sleeping most of the day..lol..

The hotel has not beeen maintained for at least 20 years. Torn matresses, blankets that are 30 years old, cracked bathtub and mirrors.
