Ocean Spray Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms alittle outdated and needs some updating, and elevator is extremely slow and inspection expired 1 yr ago. [ it may have passed this year but the old inspection certificate is in elevator ]. Room was very comfortable, bed was comfortable, had view of a waterway, ac was ice cold. For the money i paid it was well worth it.

The hotel very old elevator doesn't work and no hot water in the shower

Has an old school renaissance feel for decor. It felt like Antarctica all the time even with the air condition off, but that was the only negative.

The hotel is OK for the price. Most other reviewers are correct: very old building, paper thin walls, poor insulation around the guest room door, small rooms, hotel lobby smells with subway food, and you can forget about the elevator. However, our room was clean, bed was comfortable, and hotel was in perfect location, close to everything. They have no resort fee that most other properties charge around there and very reasonable early check-in and late check out fees. In other words the ratio between price and value is good -- you get what you paid for. If you have extra $$ and looking for a hotel experience, stay somewhere else. If you are there for the beach, then it is a decent choice for you. Just remember that you are saving money staying there and that if hotel figured out ways to address all the issues they have, they would double their prices. It is very basic, but it works if you are planning short beach escape.

the beds where very comfortable and the hotel was good for the price. one block from beach. overall good hotel but the front desk staff were not friendly. they made me feel as though they were doing me a favor by helping me. no smiles no greeting. and the older hispanic gentleman working the front desk was very arrogant and dismissive. I had my room changed 3 times because they got the bed size wrong. etc.

Ok for the price. Would be better once remodel is done

This hotel is the definition of you get what you pay for. The staff does not know the meaning of customer service. Additionally this hotel is beyond outdated. First and last time staying at this hotel.

Came here couple yrs ago n had a great stay but this time they charged 15 for roll away bed n 28 for extra person. Room barely fit roll bed n check in took way too long. The beach is across the street though thats only plus.

My room was freezing at night and the heater did not work, my toilet clogged several times which i unclogged myself, and the wifi in the rooms was not working until my 3rd night there.

Well they said it's free breakfast, but it's not! You still need to pay 3$ that's red flag. I reserved 8days stay in this hotel but we're not happy about their services so we check out 4 days early.. there beach towel is like rug they're too small and it seams like they're really old towel. Not gonna get reservation in this hotel again.

Hotel stall rude. Leaking sink? Loud noise. Horrible experience.

Great location foe my business needs. Decent restaurants and stores nearby. Top floors provide Ocean View.

Loved the location, we walked along the water and looked at the gorgeous houses and boats. The other side of the hotel is right across the street from the beach. Loved the cute little room. It was clean and quaint. Freezing, but that was easy to adjust. No frills but it was perfect for a couple nights stay. Look for the city parking garage down the street- under ten bucks. Subway smell took some getting used to. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Great value for me as I attend my Annual Business Convention.

I have never been in a worse hotel in my life and this is no joke. I paid extra for a late check out till 3pm and they have no communication at all. 4 times between 11 - 2 I had different room service people just walk in my room without knocking or anything. I ended up leaving early and asking for my $ back.

Hotel is an excellent stay for the money you pay. King size bedroom was very spacious & comfortable. AC was very cold. Bathroom could have been kept up a little more (tub was slow in draining). I didn't like the fact that there is a subway in the lobby due to the overwhelming smell soon as you walk into the lobby. Overall the Ocean Spray Hotel is a low key gem in the middle of Miami Beach.

The stay was good. You need to look into breakfast and parking included in the rates

I traveled alone. The room was excellent. Very nice and good staff. A metro bus stop just 45 secs away the hotel. The only issue was the hot water but the administration brought a company for fix it. For the price was EXCELLENT. I would stay again here.

Only complaint is the location is not on South Beach. It is at the of 41st Street & Collins Ave.

Hotel is nothing fancy but its close to the beach and cheap.
