I very much want to give this little motel a great rating but just can’t. The staff are so lovely, the building charming and rooms clean. However there were just some issues we couldn’t overlook. First of all the parking. We knew before we arrived that there wasn’t much parking onsite. However, with it being spring break when we were in Miami Beach it took us 45 minutes to find a spot which was very frustrating. Try to arrive earlier in the evening so you can find parking near by. Second, the room was clean but laid out funny. We thought we were getting a room with 1 queen and 2 single beds but ended up in a room with 4 single beds. One which was around the corner near the kitchen. It was an odd layout especially since my husband and I weren’t even in the same room. One of the beds was also quite soft and didn’t seem that stable so only our youngest could sleep on it. The kitchen definitely needed updating as well, it was old and made the room seem dirty. Third and biggest issue. We were in room 5 which overlooks the very busy road below. The windows are thin and you can hear cars and street noise very clearly all night long. I think any room would have been better than the one we were in as far as noise goes. Also gets really bright in the morning with not a lot to block light out. If you are looking for a place to stay that is clean and cheaper than other places in Miami Beach this place is for you. There are just a few issues you need to know ahead of time.
Stopped for one night to avoid expensive Miami Beach. Two blocks from the beach which meant we caught a beautiful sunrise there. Check in was friendly and efficient. There was a problem with our room which I am not going to go into as it was solved to our satisfaction. The out of office hours manager living on site was not reachable in the morning. We were told later that she had to hand out the last key at 4am which probably meant she was still asleep. That to me is not an acceptable excuse though. It delayed our departure by more than an hour. From what we gathered by the way the courtyard was filled with bikes, peaks and toys, people seem to live there permanently. But with no one to be seen around it gives the place a bit of a funny feeling. The room was ok for the night, but I would try my luck elsewhere on a different occasion.
Stayed at the Sorrento villas with my family and i was suprised when I saw how big the room/apartment was. We had 2 rooms with a kitchen. The kitchen had a stow, microwaveowen, toaster and coffeebrewer. The room was clean and tidy. The staff was friendly and nice. There are 5 complimentary parkingspaces, on first to come basis, otherwise you can park on the street outside. The sorrento villas are just 2 blocks from the beach, less than 5 minutes to walk. There are restaurants and groceriesstores in the area. The northbeach area are less crowded than southbeach.
If you want to be in Miami but South Beach is full or too expensive, Sorrento villas is an option. Located in North Beach, bus 119 or 120 takes you to South Beach in about 30 minutes, and 15-20 minutes to Haulover Beach. The villas are not villas but basic rooms, and require a bit of renovation. My room (5A) had with 2 single beds, small bathroom and small pantry with fridge, microwave, coffee machine and cloth rack. Daily cleaning, friendly owners, 2 washers and dryers available (costs 4 and 6 quarters). Downside: No pool, and I had a noisy room (aircon, traffic). Nice beach, shops and restaurants in 5 minutes walking distance, More shops and restaurants in 10 minutes. I would go here again, if only I could get a quiet room.
The bathroom door couldn't close because it was rotten at the bottom likely from a flood. The shower drain almost didn't drain at all. There were cracks in the wall near the AC unit which was also very noisy. The only good thing about tis hotel is the location.
It’s a very nice small hotel near the beach. Rooms are big enough, it is clean and you have your own microwave and fridge. It has no breakfast or a 24hour reception. The lady from the hotel was very nice. We enjoyed our stay.
We only stayed here for one night, but the owners were accommodating of our late arrival considering the fact that this establishment is family-owned. This place is very close to the north beach (about 5 minutes walk) and many stores and restaurants. I would definitely recommend.
This place is on a side street a couple blocks from the beach. Absolutely nothing fancy. Some of the units are apartments. Priced extremely reasonable for Miami. Cleaned daily. Includes a fridge and microwave.
We were pleasantly surprised with this small hotel. Our room was quite spacious, and easily accommodated 2 adults and 1 child, who was sleeping on a separate bed behind the wall. Kitchenette with fridge, stove, oven, microwave and all utensils. Room was cleaned every day, towels were always fresh. Hotel is located in a safe, albeit noisy neighborhood. It took us couple of nights to get used to the road noise, but we weren't bothered by other guests, were enjoying quiet evenings in the yard with a book, and it is only 2 blocks to walk to the clean and peaceful beach, or 15 minutes to the North Shore open space park, where we were grilling very often in the shade.
We just stayed one night. The people are super nice, they waited for us with a smile, and made everything easy!! The place is clean and functional for one night. To hang the clothes in the kitchen it is something that I would not have liked if I stayed longer. And would have liked to be aware that my room was in a second floor without elevator. It is 20 minutes from south beach. Well comunicated and uber works very well. It was an ok experience, and think a bit too expensive for what we got.
