Richmond Oceanfront Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I loved this Hotel. The pool area left a lot to be desired- more like someone's back yard pool than a Beach hotel pool, but the guest rooms were very nice and the staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly. I would definitely stay at Hotel Richmond, again. It is old school Miami, to be sure!

Met some lovely people there and we keep in contact still.

We were welcomed with smiles and access to our room even tho we were there 2 hours before check-in. Chairs on the beach and beach towels were included in our resort fee, along with internet which worked well. A free cocktail for each of us to drink while relaxing at the pool after our long drive was wonderful.

The room was old and shabby. Bathroom creepy. Excellent location on Collins but the room was just dated and gross.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Great location.

The place charges for everything you need on top of everything you will prepay, the workers were very nice and I understand they only follow protocol.

Loved the retro feel! Clean, friendly nice hotel with great pool and close to beach & nightlife. Dated but in a cool art deco way. Would stay again.

Very charming smaller hotel with all of the basics covered. If you want a clean place right on the beach then this is your spot.

The hotel itself is ok.The lobby is upgraded and very nice however the rest of the facility is dated but clean. Do not spend the extra for ocean veiw. You cannot see any of the ocean due to the large palm trees blocking any veiw. Valet parking is expensive due to the fact there ia no where to park

Great location, very clean, right in front of the beach. Helpful staff at the front desk and lobby.

I would've given this hotel a higher rating, but we had to move due to our room not having hot water. The first room was also very small and in need of some updating. We informed the front desk of the water issue and they upgraded us to a nicer/brighter room overlooking the pool and the beach. Hotel staff provided us with beach chair vouchers and new towels each morning. They even gave us a complimentary continental breakfast voucher and extra beach chair vouchers for friends that were not staying at the hotel. Overall, we had a great experience and would stay again as the hotel in on the beach and in a great South Beach location.

It was less than expected. Staff was very friendly, but hotel room was out dated and in poor condition. Wanted to check out after checking in. Very strange smell in room had to keep the window open throughout the stay. Bathroom in room was less than clean. Would not stay again.

The staff was excellent. Keno the valet can give you any information you need to know about the city. Nice place to stay.

My experience was awful. The air condition didn't work. The bathroom was dirty. I would not recommend this hotel.

It is a lie , the hotel is worse than it looks like and very old

Walked right out the pool area to the beach. The drinks on the beach was pricey, kind of odd since they make them at the hotel. Other than that great service and food.

The total staff from front desk to room service were warmly efficient & helpful w/every sort of question. The pool & all other amenities were guest oriented to make the stay comfortable, casual & relaxing. Our room was superbly located w/direct access to the pool, 5 steps away, but set back w/our own deck of the French Doors w/perfect shade & protection from the wind. The neighborhood was away from the tourist noise from the bars & tour promoters. The neighborhood was interesting & charming in every direction we chose to explore the architecture, shops & beaches. The availability of bikes & off street parking made our every pursuit convenient.

Small basic room. Very expensive drinks and food. Nice pool and access to the beach

Staffs are very friendly and helpful but room service is pretty lame and requires a major improvement!

Should be rated a 1 star hotel! Walls are paper thin and can hear people talking in rooms( every word). I tried to find another hotel in the area, and I didn't care how much the cost would be. Would never stay here again!

Dear Kym, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your comments. We are proud to boast one of the best locations in South Beach at a great value, and we’re sorry this was not your impression. While our rooms admittedly aren’t the most modern, we do strive to offer clean and well-maintained accommodations in our authentic Art Deco property . We hope that the issues you mentioned didn’t keep you from enjoying our courtyard and pool area, direct beach access, and our proximity to Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive. Once more, we appreciate you being our guest and hope you had an amazing time in Miami! Best regards, The Richmond Hotel

Dear Guest, It was a treat to have you here with us and we’re delighted that you enjoyed our South Beach location! Many of our guests rave about our proximity to Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive, and of course we’re right between Collins Avenue and the Atlantic Ocean, so you really can’t be that! We’re glad our amazing team made you feel welcome and took good care of you. Come back and see us all again son! Best regards, The Richmond Hotel

Dear Crabby Andy, It was a pleasure to welcome you and we appreciate your feedback! While we’re glad to see that you enjoyed our prime South Beach location, we were sorry to learn that other aspects of your stay fell short of what you expected. We’re sorry if our resort fee came as a surprise to you, but you’ll find that this charge is typical of oceanfront hotels here in Miami. Among other benefits, our resort fee includes beach towels and lounge chairs, as well as Wi-Fi in our guestrooms. We’re glad that our team took good care of you and we thank you for mentioning their hospitality. We all hope to see you again when you return to the area so that we may have a second opportunity to impress you! Warm regards, The Richmond Hotel

We appreciate you staying with us and hope you’ll come back again very soon! Warmest regards, The Richmond Hotel

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with us and your recent South Beach vacation and for sharing your feedback. We are pleased to hear that you were impressed with our lobby upon arrival, and we appreciate you highlighting the cleanliness of our accommodations. Attention to detail is critical to us and we are pleased to learn that you noticed those efforts. We have shared your feedback with the team and they extend their gratitude.
