Great Location in Art Deco hotel
This is a great location on Ocean Drive in one of the many small 1930s Art Deco hotels that line shoulder to shoulder along the street. It is a short walk to everything. The folks who work here are all as nice as can be. This is a fairly simple, no frills place. I was in the back corner, 3rd floor and it was nice, clean and quiet but a back alley view. Also, the wifi was poor back there. For the included breakfast, they rely on the adjoining Mexican-style restaurant whose outdoor seating stretches across the front of the hotel. The beach is a short walk across the street and beach towels are provided. Be sure to take the Art Deco Architectural tour by the Miami Design Preservation League. If you don't want to walk places, you can get a Lyft in about 1 minute.

Poor 2.0
Dissapointed
Rooms are tight but what was expected.very noisy as we were in the back of hotel on the alley where there was constant slamming of garbage bins and then garbage trucks and other service vehicles each morning at the crack of dawn. My main gripe was although the front desk was nice they did not honor the price I received making the reservation, charging an additional 20$ per night for one room (though they held price on second room?). Wasn't worth arguing over but would never go back to place that doesn't keep its deals.

it was amazing living
It was amazing living. I believe U could not find this value price in South Beath area.Walk to beach just 2 mins. My kids and me off cruise on that day. I just wish have a good rest there before fly to vancouver. I thought in this price maybe a tidy room and not clean. But everything was surprise. THE bathroom is big,huge than normal, shower is big drop,tower look like brand new. Even my english is not good, but they tryed to help me what I need. I got over my expect. Next time we will stay more days.
