    Superb

    the location, the breakfast and the value for money were excellent.the beach is very near, only one block..

    Nice Art Deco building on Ocean Drive, good location.

    Service -if existent- was disastrous, which is completely atypical for the USA. Valet parking totally overpriced. The staff leaves you with the feeling to be an unbidden guest, is ill-tempered an harsh. Highly not recommended!

    Fabulous

    Location. If you go to South Beach, it's part of the experience to stay in an art deco place, and this one gives a good location with a reasonable price (not to mention that you are a bit further away from the noice of the Ocean Drive's central part).

    Breakfast was poor - just tea and bagels basically. And there weren't even enough toasters for the bagels...

    Very good

    I liked the location. The room was small but comfortable. I appreciated the white noise machine.

    The hotel charged $10 a person for a package that included free happy hour and a continental breakfast. We didn't make it to the happy hour, and the breakfast was disappointing. They offered only toast and bagels. They didn't even have cream cheese for the bagels. There was no juice or fruit or cereal or yogurt. A bit more effort would make the breakfast feel like more of a value and less of a joke.

    Fabulous

    Staff is friendly and helpful (Manager himself helped me to set up my WLAN connection); Prime location, on Ocean Drive near South Beach, but almost no noise from the street.

    We had a room with a connection door to another room and some walls do not realy attenuate the noise, so we could hear too much from the conversations of our neighbours. But just as it is at home, it is a matter of luck to have nice or naughty neighbours.

    The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's right on Ocean drive, just a 1/2 a block south of where the hustle begins. The place is nice. Nothing to write home about, but definately nothing to complain about either.

    The only thing I remember that annoyed me was you could hear the a lot more than you wanted too, but you can't complain about people being up and talking at 10am waking you up in the morning...

    Location was close in proximity to the beach.

    Awful service from the hotel staff. The bathroom was dirty and looked to be falling apart. The elevator smelled like vomit, from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. We actually took the stairs to the 4th floor, each time we left and returned to our hotel, it was that bad. I never imagined I would ever be the person to give such an awful review (I am extremely low maintenance, and have backpacked all over Asia and parts of Africa), but this experience has opened my eyes to how bad a hotel stay can be.

    The only nice thing I can say is that it was across the street from the beach. The bartender was nice and the front desk guy at check in was very helpful.

    One of the worst. They stated it as "Art Deco" - I would state it as "Used Target." The beds were low to the ground and had no box springs. The bedspreads/comforters were orange and red stripes. The air conditioning was mediocre at best. The room was very noisy! You could hear people walking above you. My room was next to maintenance (on the third floor in the middle of the hotel). I was awakened at 1:30 AM to the weather channel! They had turned the TV up so loud that it was blasting in my room. It cost $30 to Valet park your car - yet I had to wait 30 minutes to give him my car. They charge $10 resort fee for Cont breakfast and happy hour. No juice or fruit in the AM and only watered down drinks for HH. No beer or wine.

    El hotel está muy bien ubicado, en pleno South Beach Ocean Drive, si bien aparenta un hotel un tanto viejo, está todo reciclado y es muy confortable, la atención es muy buena. Ideal para relajarse y pasar unos días muy cerca de la playa.

    Hay un bar que en ciertas horas ofrece tragos gratis...esos dejan mucho que desear. Desayuno sencillo pero incluido en el precio.
