The bed was very comfortable. We were very pleased with our stay.

Location was perfect.

Great location. Far enough from the heart of South Beach. So you get best of both worlds a little of fun nights on South beach a little of relaxation too. Hotel staff were great, rooms clean, pool nice added plus, and the beach chairs and umbrellas in the room great touch.

Super cute stay. Nice amenities. Felt safe. Great restaurant

Peaceful, private, low key environment with a highly professional and accommodating staff.

I stayed here June 26-28 the weekend of birthday. The hotel is beautiful, clean and steps away from the beach. There is a $20 resort fee daily. They provide beach chair,and umbrella. $50 a night incidental fee. You're on corner of Ocean drive. Everything is literally at your front door. Rooms are nice size,and super clean. Restaurant located in hotel have good food. Front desk ladies are very friendly,and helpful. They make sure you don't need anything. I'll definitely stay here again.

Well-run boutique hotel; I return annually for the excellent location in the quieter end of South Beach (SOFI) and proximity to beach, outstanding amenities (bikes, comp. wine, rooftop pool), and friendly and attentive staff.

The hotel was very hard to find as there is no sign on the building stating "Sense Beach House". The only sign there is states "The Local House" which we found out is their restaurant. The entrance to the actual hotel is located behind the restaurant entrance and the only way we found it is because I actually got out of the car to go ask where the hotel was. Other than that everything else was great. Took us a while to figure out how to turn the TV on, you have to place your room key in a slot next to the door to turn on the remaining of the electricity. We only stayed one night due to our flight out of Miami the next morning, but definitely would come back for the price and cleanliness.

I generally stay the Marriott two blocks down but will return to Sense. Lovely staff, intimacy only a small hotel can provide, and a well-kept facility. Loved the roof top deck and pool and 24 hour access to roof. beach chairs and towels were readily available. Accommodated my early check in and high floor requests. I was pleasantly surprised.

Great experience at this hotel. Near the beach with a nice restaurant as a part of it. Close enough where things get a little crazy but far enough for privacy and peace. Loved it. Nice rooftop pool too!
