Recent guest reviews

Very nice hotel, close to everything, across the street from the beach. The Staff was wonderful, very pleasant and caring. Fernando at the front seat was awesome. Don't get caught in reviews it was a very quiet, nice, clean place. You will be pleased. I was and I'm picky.

Was upgraded to a studio like room with a kitchen. Hotel is right across the street from the beach and walkable distance to popular places like Wet Willies and Mangos. Fernando, the guy at the front desk was really nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Very friendly, helpful staff. The room was very nice and spacious and kept very clean. It's right across the street from the beach and close to many restaurants as well as liquor stores and a Walgreens. The rooftop pool is small but the area and view are awesome!The only problem I could see others having with this hotel is the Mexican restaurant next door, Jalapenos, plays loud music so if you are on the left or front side of the hotel you will be able to hear the music and they stay open late. However, if you're looking for "quiet" you shouldn't stay on Ocean Drive anyways. Highly recommended!

It was great! I was able to check in a little early because there was a room available.

Very nice location but, don't eat on Ocean Drive. Food is good but very pricey. Search local private restaurants instead of tourist locations. Miami cuisine is fantastic. Ask locals for advice, not the hotels.

Stay here!!!!! Best location & price. Huge partial suite

We were staying one night before our cruise. The hotel room was not at all like the pictures. We were right off the lobby and it was noisy. The location was fun as we had never been to south beach but the room was a disappointment and then at the end got charged a resort fee. Really??!!

The hotel looked lovely. The staff was nice. The location in proximity to the partying on Ocean was ok, kind of away from it all, but the distance to walk to get to the more vibrant area wasn't far to walk. Great proximity to the beach! The room however was enclosed and sat on the side of the building so it was hard to sleep some nights, listening to the music pumping at the restaurant next door. Also the room smelled really musty. We never figured out why. We were there 4 nights, when I returned home, the musty smell was in my clothes!

Good location, with a lot of restaurants near by. Good value for money. Vallet service is very slow.

Great location, on the quieter end of south beach and across from the beach.

Had a great time. Staff friendly and accomadating. Beds very comfortable, pool warm, great view

location was perfect right cross street from the beach and close to walgreens, flafel and hummas resturant. hotel was clean room was specious i has studio, was very comfy. staff were very helpful when i first checked in i had a room in front of the lobby which was very noisy and when i asked to change the room they gave me better room fight away no question asked. little pet noisy at night time from people who were on the street or drinking in the restaurant,,,, but was not big deal

The staff was friendly and helpful . The beach was located across the street. Lots of wonderful resturants on ocean dr. Especially CJ Crab shack.

suite looked nice and was spacious, but shared a balcon with suite next door. a nicely renovated, older, no frills hotel with a great location.

I absolutely loved this hotel! Perfect location , close to literally everything. The room we stayed in was the junior suite. It was clean, spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. We will most definitely be back to see Mr. Fernando, he was do good to us. Great staff as well!!! glad I found this place!

My buddy and I stayed at the Fritz and were pleasantly surprised by the rroom size, comfort, and location to Ocean Avenue while beig at the more quiet end of the popular street. The nearby restaurants and shops were fun to visit and the hotel staff were very responsive to our requests for service. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to the South Beach area for a vacation.

We had a good time at the fritz. The staff was very nice and helpful. The walls were pretty thin, however so when our neighbors arrived at 4:00 am, they were pretty present in our room. Overall, it's pretty quiet and can't beat the location!

Location may be not be ideal but there are a lot of great things about this hotel! I was a but nervous about having booked the studio but it is actually more spacious than many of the rooms I've seen or stayed at on Ocean. The room is ideal for 3 people. Sofa bed is hard but the front desk provided additional bedding (not a problem if you don't use the room much). Front desk is friendly and accommodating (proving additional towels/ beach towels) Rooftop pool. Size is perfect, again most hotels on ocean don't have pools. Cab ride from 4th to 11th/12th street about $5 Maid not available 24/7, let them clean when they come. Very modern. Wood floors. It appears to have been recently redone.

The hotel was fine and the location was fine as well. It has been recently updated but in a way that looks good in a photograph but not for actually utilizing the room. The sink was a "vessel" which is trendy and nice to look at but there was nowhere to put the soap. You could put it on the toiletry shelf where it would make a mess or leave it in the bowl. Also, two towel racks not enough. Minor issues. The shower was lovely. We had rooms on the first floor around the hotel desk so it was probably noisier than other floors. We were under the impression that through orbxxxx, the entire stay was paid for. When we checked in they made us sign a sheet that we'd pay a $12/day "resort fee" which covered pool towels and internet use. That didn't seem right. The weather was not great for the roof top pool and we only used it once. Not thinking I should be paying for towels I'm not actually using. And the information and amenities sheet we were given mentioned complimentary wi if internet. We brought this to their attention so I'm pretty sure they will revise their amenities sheet. Besides the rooftop pool there were no "resort" offerings.

This is a great one as far as location price and quality. The staff is very friendly. Only con is that some rooms on the ground floor dont have windows that can be opened. Other then that everything was excell:)
