Perfectly located. Excellent and friendly staff. Rooms are a perfect size. Very clean. Overall, a wonderful experience!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location to beach, shopping, and dining.

Very nice style and appearance but would have liked more space and carpet the tile floor is cold... Water to shower didnt get very hot but very accomodating staff.... Walking distance to everything! !

After coming to Miami for ten years for the fairs I had the best experience at Ocean Five. The staff is by far the nicest I have met. Rooms simple but updated and clean. The location removed from the beach restaurant crazyness and quiet. Will defenitely return.

Andy at the front desk was awesome. And the young Italian guy who's expecting a baby that works in the restaurant was also great. Made our visit fun and pleasant.

Stayed for three nights and it was great. Close to the beach and restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was ok. It was toast, juice, muffin, and fruit. The only thing is I am 6'3 and the room felt 4'3 in a since. But spent most of our time walking the strip and site seeing. Night life can get congested but overall the this hotel is great and would stay again. Four thumbs up if I had two extra. lol

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the staff was exceptionally kind and helpful.

I was really surprised by the quality of the rooms in this hotel for the price we paid. The rooms were really nice. The hotel is about a 3 minute walk to the beach which was perfect for me and my family. This hotel does not offer a pool which is on downside. Its a short walk to all the restaurants on Ocean Ave, about a minute from TGI Fridays if you're looking for something more familiar to eat. The walk to Wet Willies is about 7 minutes which is not bad. This hotel is positioned to be away from the noise but you're within 5 minutes of everything happening on Ocean. We had 4 people in in the two doubles and it was really tight, no room to move around, if you're going with more than two people try to get a bigger room.

The room that my friend and I stayed in was small but adorable and we enjoyed it. It was a great location in Miami and we just kept calling it our little bungalow. No pool but a nice hotel that doesn't cost a fortune.

Ocean Five Hotel provides a great value and location for staying in South Beach. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly and the room was more than functional for my needs. Those being a clean place to shower and change in between partying, because who sleeps in Miami right?

Ocean Five has the perfect location on Ocean Drive. Close to beach, eateries and the night life but offers a quiet oasis away from the madness that South Beach can bring. I will absolutely stay there again. The staff: Andy, Joshua, Chrissy and Lewis were hospitable, helpful, professional and fun. Cleaning staff was great as well. They made the stay very comfortable and memorable. I'll be back!

The hotel being right on south beach is such a great value! Staff is polite and courteous and rooms are an ok space because you will just use it for sleeping at the end of a long day in Miami! You do have to pay for parking but not extra for valet and you get a secure private lot, which is rare to find near the beach. They could offer a better breakfast because the downstairs nook acts as a full Italian restaurant at night. Overall, a great, clean hotel at a great location in front of the beach for an awesome price!

parking is not free and expensive. The hotel is in a perfect place

Small budget hotel near the beach. Rooms are small, plain, and dark, but clean. Was woken up by slamming doors and yelling in the hall in the middle of the night. Continental breakfast was cornflakes and a banana. Cheap place to sleep, but don't plan on spending much time there other than sleeping.

Location location Location. One block away from Miami Beach. Overall I enjoyed my stay at Ocean Five. The room was small (not very special) and the bathroom was tiny but everything was clean and the staff was very helpful. I did not spend much time in the hotel as the neighborhood had so much to offer. Easy walking distance to Miami Beach, food and nightlife.

This hotel is conviniently located in Ocean Drive... Not in the heart of Ocean Drive but quite close (walking distance) and has the beach just across the street.

very easy and covenient. We will stay again next year

This hotel is a great bargain for Ocean Drive. It is only a block away from the beach and a few blocks away from Lincoln Road. We stayed at the new additions that are very modern and chic. The room could have been cleaner and the floors could have been mopped once during our stay. The breakfast is horrible. It consists of cereal in a styrofoam bowl. If the food runs out it is not replaced.

Wife and I stayed from March 15th-19th, 2013. Hotel has a great location on Ocean Drive, but a couple of blocks away from all of the crazy noise that starts at about the 600 block. Art Deco in name only, however, as many of the rooms are located in a building to the south opposite the parking lot, which is nondescript at best. Rooms are large however, and have a nice airy feel to them. Hotel lacks amenities. No pool, no fitness facility, and the complimentary continental breakfast is awful. Parking is expensive at $25/day. would not book this hotel again.

The location was great! It was the only good thing. The room it self was so tiny. There was no furniture besides the beds, no tables with chairs like the pics showed or anything at all. The bathroom is super tiny with a small standup shower. The door of the shower would not close all the way so water would seep through to the floor which was really annoying. There was no counter room whats so ever in the bathroom or in the room to lay things like makeup or lay anything at all. The room is in general very old fashioned. The TV is poor quality and its the big back type. I just think those take too much room when theres little space already. The bed were made of the wooden type. They didn't have curtains instead they have wooden boards to cover the window. Do not believe the pics as the room do not look like that. Maybe they have one special room that's like that but we had a terrible one. One day the cleaning lady came by early and we were still getting ready to go to the beach so we asked her to come back in five minutes. They never came back and we didnt have towels. We took the initiation to grab some clean towels from a cart and placed the dirty ones in there and we were yelled at for doing that. Going to the beach everyday there was sand in the room and it was never cleaned. So our feet were always dirty. The breakfast is a joke. They have your name on paper which is so different , you have to literally sign ur name next to your room number to be able to get breakfast. Breakfast consisted of white bread, jam, and bananas. We never got breakfast after that first day.They also do not control noise level. Unless you are apart of the partiers expect to be woken up by loud and obnoxious people. Be careful when booking too, to save money I have placed two ppl in a room when really there was four. It has never been an issue at any other hotel, EVER. Here they keep track of people that go in and out and will charge you for them. Be warned, they are sticklers for rules.
