I was really happy with the location at South Beach! You get what you payed for. Booked it for the second time after 3 weeks holiday because we found it to be affordable, decent and central. The breakfast was bad (sugarbomb!) but didn't really expect much either. You could also borrow chairs to bring to the beach and it's 24...

The whole area around Miami Beach is rather expensive so we can't complain about the under-the-average room quality, since the price we paid was pretty low. Bad things first: our room window was "blinded" by the concrete wall of the next door building, the separation being a narrow and noisy (due to the AC systems) alley. Good things now: the...

Well where do i start. Island house seemed ok for a group of 4. A couple and two friends in separate rooms. We arrived and learnt it was a dump. Everything is rundown. The floors, walls and beds are all rubbish. The reason i am compelled to write this review is because of an incident that occurred while staying here....

Great location, one block from ocean drive. Loved the continental breakfast and how late it is open, a great cushion for the late nights. Also loved the front porch, our best nights were spent drinking and making friends just hanging out. The beds however had stains upon arrival, dont know if they just weren't cleaned or were literally stained but...

This hotel is close to the beach and there are many restaurants near this hotel. The staff are not always at the desk and a lot of the time sleeping and when you do catch one there or awake it isn't always a good thing. Not very helpful and they act like you are putting them out. It is an...
