Great little stay!
Great location on Ocean Drive right by SouthBeach! This is next to so many little restaurants and you are steps from the beach. The cons were a very hard bed, if they upgrade it would of been an amazing little stay. The place was very clean, perfect for a cheap getaway. Room and bathroom was small but just right. Breakfast and complimentary drink for each guest was provided. Parking is not great anywhere on ocean drive but there is a parking lot around the corner that will let you park for $40 from check in time 3:00p to 1:00p next day if you ask them! Otherwise most places charge $20 for 4-5 hours or you have to get out of the garage at 5am.

End of summer stay
Great location right on Ocean Drive. Breakfast was decent, food just was cold every day. The towels were covered in hair EVERY day from the housekeeper. The floors also seemed dirty and covered in hair. The room set up was comfortable. Beach towels provided were small but we only used them to knock off the sand and dry off. Nice and friendly staff. Check in drink was a nice bonus!

Must stay on Ocean Drive
The hotel was amazing. Front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating. Went over to the beach and they called me when the room was ready. We had the private terrace room overlooking ocean drive with a billion dollar view. Was amazing. Nice and quiet for being on Ocean Dr and everything was right there. Saw a great sunrise too. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was perfect. Service was great! We will be back!

Cute little beach hotel
Location is great...right across from the beach. Free welcome drink was yummy. Breakfast was adequate--eggs, bacon, breads, waffles. Our bathroom smelled, and I think it was from the used cooking oil bin right outside the window. Kept the door closed so it wouldn't seep into the room, but it was pretty bad in the bathroom. Parking was a challenge. Valet is $48 for an SUV, so we wanted to self-park in the ramp a couple blocks away for $20. It was full when we got there around 5pm, but we lucked out and found street parking for a couple hours and then went back about 8 and got in.
