This hotel needs to be renovated badly. If you want to transport yourself back into late fifties and enjoy painted bathtub, oil stained carpets, plastic chairs etc.. do it. There are several choices on Collins Ave with in similar price range for you to consider. I used booking site to select this purely on price. I checked in around 10...

Don't expect much luxury here. The location is perfect though: quieter than Ocean Drive but only one street away. Staff (Ricky) is very welcoming and will lend you beach towels and chairs. The building is authentic Art Deco, if a bit rundown. I'd stay there again.

I had read reviews and booked because there were positive as well as negative comments. I found nothing positive in my stay here other than the location. I booked a "standard" room and it was anything but standard. This place makes Motel 6 look like 5-star in comparison. Old is good. But not maintained it not good. Hopefully I can...

I stayed in the Island House In the middle of September 2013 for a week and it was a pure nightmare. From the pictures and reviews I got a feeling I made a good choice, unfortunately soon I found out I was very wrong . As soon as I checked in I disliked it. The staff who was working on...

No issues with my stay, and for the price it can't go wrong. Staff was friendly and accomodating, even checked me in two hours early at no extra charge. The room was fine, but could use some updating. WiFi connection is poor in most rooms, so you have to use it in the public areas. Includes free breakfast, no annoying...

Been here at the end of September with my girlfriend for just one day. Did some last-minute booking via booking.com which worked out perfectly well, no problems during check-in. Overall happy with the location of the hotel (100m to Ocean's Drive, 300m to beach), unfortunately the hotel doesn't offer a free parking lot. Please keep in mind that you'll have...

We booked as a last minute thing for one night. I would highly recommend for you to spend your money elsewhere. We paid $149 for a studio. Hotel is extremely outdated and run down. Not Art Deco at all. Carpet was pratically coming off the floor and it was stained. Horrible experience and waste of money. I don't recommend at...

This hotel is a total waste of money! My husband and I were looking for a reasonably priced hotel in South Beach as we were traveling to The Keys! Made reservations online, however when we arrived I proceeded to go inside! As I walked in I immediately knew this was not a safe place! There was a long dark hallway...
