Friends from Vancouver invited me over to stay with them overnight. We were cramped in a small room (but who cares!) The room was reasonable for a couple but not for 3 people. Right across is Wallgreens. Valet Parking was $42/24 hours. A cheaper option are parkades 2 blocks away from the place for $16/24 hours. There's a bar by...

Just no. I have been in South Beach many times and this is the first time I really don't like my hotel. It's an old, decrepit, neglected hotel. Staff were nice, however the entire stay was horrible. Uncomfortable bed, walls have cracks and are like papers. Bad music from the hall, depressing atmosphere. Not recommended.

Dear Siuppolina, unfortunately we don't have you as a registered guest in our hotel and we can't knowledge any issues you say you had. Nevertheless, as much as we would try (as any other hotel) not every property is acquainted for every taste. We are priced based on what we offer to our guests and we understand that sometimes different...

We were a group of eight staying for five nights at South Beach Plaza Hotel. The hotel is conveniently located one block back from beach and bars. There is a Walgreens across the road. We paid a resort fee and a continental breakfast was included. We had a lovely big room on the ground floor, the others that we travelled...

It is an old-looking hotel, but the location is great, it is at 100 meters of the Ocean Drive and the Beach, opposite to the hotel you have a Walgreens supermarket. The rooms were perfectly clean and had a pleasant smell. The service was great and the staff very helpful. Highly recommended if you want to go to Miami Beach...

I have many reasons for suggesting not to stay here, but it is mainly their lack of belief in good communication. First of all I tried to contact the hotel 5 times before my arrival via email and had NO response. Then housekeeping took my towel from the chair it was hanging from as well as my shorts. These were...

Dear Mrs. Kirstyta2: We are sorry for your inconvenience but also for the inaccuracy of your statement. You were at the hotel when you misplaced your shorts. We checked with the laundry that takes care of our linens and they didn't receive any objects with the regular whites. The Housekeeping Manager talked you personally to let you know. The front...

Horrible, nothing like the photos on their website No customer service etiquette. Staff were rude. Rooms were very disappointing. Cracked walls, leaky faucets. Manager was just as rude as her staff!!! Not worth the rate. I don't recommend it!

Dear Mrs Janette, we are sorry that your perception of the room was different from what it shows on the internet. We do not use professional services for our pictures but are only taken with our camera and download them directly to the internet. We don't even use Photoshop. Regardless, our budget/economic hotel's prices are based on offer/demand for similar...

I have stayed in this hotel for 1 night when visiting Miami with my husband. The room was bigger size then expected however with interesting smell, which gave me headache. The hotel offered glass of wine each in the bar, which was a nice touch but we didn't try it. The reception staff always looked too tired and couple of...

The service was great until it was time for the staff to honor their promotional upgrade if you booked through their website and stayed at least 2 nights. First I had to inquire about it (as if it was going to be offered). Then coincidentally when I asked, "the room wasn't ready and come back tomorrow to check". When I...

Dear Mr. G.G: We are sorry about the confusion. The Complimentary upgrade is based upon availability (this is informed in the website) and we can honor it an average of 90% of the time. I am sorry this wasn't your case. If there is something we are proud of and we never have complaints is about the cleaning. I would...
