The Clay Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Not a big fan of dead pigeons on balcony. becoming just a sleeping headquarter with climbing rates, stuffing the place with as many rooms they can by eliminating a beautiful guest lobby on second floor sad.

They rented like it's in Washington Street and it's a full block away in a place that is nothing like they're advertised

Great location and price . It also comes with refrigerator and microwave

I was not comfortable with the condition of the hotel ...it needs a update bad and the rooms and hallways stink and the balconies is not safe

The main lobby is on Washington Street, and it also opens onto a closed-off street plaza with many patio-style restaurants. The area was still under construction, so there was lots of construction debris and broken tiles. We didn't know that our rooms were in a different building, one block down, through restaurant row. It was hard to navigate this with our luggage. There was a locked gate (we used our room key to open it) that led into a small spanish-style courtyard. There was no elevator, so we had to bring all our luggage up the stairs one flight. There was a locked door there too, so I felt there was really good security. I was traveling with my husband and my adult kids. Our room was fine, but the kids got a room that smelled moldy. They slept with the windows open and that seemed to help a lot. The staff was friendly and helpful.

great Authentic South Beach experience. ROOMS were so contemp and clean and cool as hell.. Close walk to the beach also.,.,They also have beach chairs on the beach.

Terrible experience, our room was on 3rd floor (this property does not have elevators nor do they provide any assistance with luggage) the shower was not functioning. Construction happening on the entire floor, with dust and noise all around. The breakfast is a joke - stale bread with coffee and if you're lucky some oranges! The desk staff is horrible and rude- didn't provide any receipt - gave a lame excuse that there printer was not working.

Great location and neighbor, hotel under construction too much noisy can't sleep at all. Room pretty clean and front desk lady ( tall skinny in late 50) she can be nicer. Breakfast poor and coffee is terrible( how you can go wrong right on Cuban neighborhood?)

The room was small but remodeled and clean. Perfect for me and my wife. We don't spend much time in the room so it's perfect to sleep, change and for the bathroom very simple. It's always clean when we get back with new clean towels and sheets.

The hotel is divided into four complexes non which have elevators the stairs are narrow and long which makes for a difficult journey as you try to climb them carrying your luggage the area is under construction so not a pretty site the ceiling fan in my room was not working I would say the only good thing was the free breakfast every morning that you that to walk to four buildings down.

Rooms super tiny, shower curtain smelled super gross had to ask them to change it. The last night there a bum was sleeping in the lobby, since I was put in the way back building. The only great thing was location.

Beautiful hot spot also the food was great. ..the complimentary breakfast was blah. .no eggs no meat please change that. .other than that I will come back again thx

Clean accommodations with energetic street and nightlife all around. Balcony added to the view and experience.

This was a pleasant surprise. Hotel is in a great location for restaurants. the beach is a nice 2-3 blocks walk. You can rent a beach chair and umbrella for free if one uses the renter they recommended.

Second time staying at The Clay...still love it!

.....and they never disappoint! Definitely will continue booking here whenever I travel to South Beach!

My husband and I stayed at The Clay the night before boarding our cruise. We stayed here for our last cruise and enjoyed it. The Clay is smack down in the middle of South Miami Beach nightlife on The Espaniola Way, a street lined with restaurants. Expect lots of late evening noise and excitement. If you want an exciting change to your hum-drum normal life then this is the place to be. The room is just large enough for the queen size bed, small desk and small TV, microwave and small fridge. The Clay property includes 3-4 buildings along the same street which they have renovated into clean and contemporary rooms. I liked the bathroom especially. Since our last stay, a complimentary continental breakfast has been added to their amenities. Very nice and appreciated. Very good value for just a one-night stay!

I've stayed here whenever I am in South Beach. It's of great value, clean, & offers speedy wifi (available everywhere), comfortable beds, good toiletries, & central to many of the places you will end up going to.

Reserved this hotel for a night before my girlfriends and I headed to the Caribbean. In the perfect location walking distance from Ocean Drive and Washington Street where Mansion is located.
