I'll start by saying the location is directly across from the beach area. The staff for the most part were friendly. But actually getting a hold of someone is another story. No amenities, no closet in my room. When I arrived I hopped into bed to find the sheets were soiled. Felt like sand. Turns out it was tiny bugs.I...

Like another reviewer, we were also a little dubious about staying at this hotel due to some of the negative reviews we had read. Fortunately, we still decided to stay because of the positive reviews, the location, and the price. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished we had stayed longer. We didn't even have time to take advantage of...

"Tres Chic" is the best term to describe this funky, boutique style hotel on the strip in South Beach. You feel like a celeb even if you aren't. There is an Italian restaurant right out front with excellent food , wine and waiters, not to be missed. We had an ocean view and it is a premiere party place! The...

I had to book a hotel room in Miami one night before I booked the reservation. I booked it less than 24 hours from check in and I got such a great last minute rate. We checked into the room late that night and easily checked in. The staff were extremely friendly and helping. We expected our room to be...

We have stayed here for years and it has always been an exceptional value and great experience. The staff is lovely and the rooms clean and appealing. Being on Ocean Ave is great but the hotel is set back enough that you do not hear the noise. Highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in South Beach.

Here's the deal...all you are getting with Hotel Ocean is location. That's it. Nothing more. It's true that it is hard to find and you have to walk through a restaurant to get to it. The lobby can't be larger than 15x30. We stayed in room 205 which was above average size but nothing too spectacular. Best of luck with...

Just stayed there for 3 nites, left 1 nite early. Terrible hotel, no standards, arrogant, dirty, overpriced and noisy. First, it's hard to find as it's right above an Italian restaurant. The restaurant takes up the entire first floor and they play loud, Italian opera, rock and pop songs from 10:30 am to 1:30 am in the morning. The rooms...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel during WMC in March. The first room they put us in was in the "old tower" which was nice but a little grungy and we saw a few bugs so we asked if we could be put in the new tower. They gladly moved us into the new tower into an upgraded...

Yes the hotel is noisy, yes the parking is awful, yes the continental breakfast was a joke BUT the location is great and the rooms are fun! We loved the kitchen and well stocked mini bar for late night snacks and the funky decor of the room. The room was clean and comfortable. The TV is great and the glass...

Hotel Ocean has a very typical European feel, with a quaint courtyard in the middle of it. The rooms have a ton of character, being of fairly old construction, and the bathrooms are quite whimsical as they are tiled, with the showers all having an oval portico. We found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful, up to a...
