We were searching for a quiet hotel near the beach and not too crowded. Elita was perfect and the location is amazing. It's a small hotel, so we didn't have to worry about crowds of people at the pool or in the common areas. Most of the time we felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. The staff is very friendly. It's a cozy environment and we even had some nice conversations with a few other guests around the pool.

It's also very clean and the staff are constantly walking around with spray bottles sanitizing surfaces in the common areas- we really appreciate the extra efforts. The grounds are also very well maintained.

There are bunch of restaurants nearby. There's a great vegan place directly across the street and some fancier restaurants just at the end of the street. The waits can be somewhat long for the nice restaurants, so we found it was best to just make a reservation for those. Also the beach is literally a few steps away.....less than half a block. So even if you're sitting on the beach and need to run back to the room to grab a drink or whatever, it only takes a minute.

This hotel exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to stay here again.

Room tip: Quiet and close to beach and lots of dining options nearby

The property is in nice shape. I needed a break from Winter and currently on work from home/anywhere. I chose Elita for location and price. A mistake for my purpose.
The wifi didn't work for most of the week I stayed in the hotel. Cell service was not great in the rooms, not allowing a hotspot to work consistently. Also, with limited housekeeping, I had to schedule this when I needed it - which was fine. However, the two times I scheduled, the person did not show up at that time and was more than an hour late. With various video calls for work, that doesn't work, unfortunately. Finally, the sound privacy between rooms was also terrible. I could hear conversations of the neighboring room as well as being on the first floor, could hear every footstep of the room above me. It may be fine for a vacation but clearly not a hotel that you could function as a business person.

Brad,

We sincerely apologize for not receiving the service you were aiming for.
We wished you would have called us beforehand to ask us how strong our internet was.
We do offer " free " Hotel WIFI , but unfortunately with so many guests running "zoom" all day it is impossible for us to give all the guest the internet strength they are seeking.
We hope you would give us another chance in the near future, when the Pandemic is over.
Hopefully we can offer you the service you so much deserve.
Thank you for being our guest.
Sincerely,

Ilona,
Sales, and Guest Relations Coordinator.

We stayed at the Elita Hotel to escape the cold of NYC. It has a wonderful small pool and a comfortable courtyard to relax in. The only thing the hotel needs to do is upgrade their pool chairs before the summer season. The chairs were very uncomfortable. Our room was very clean and tidy, but a little small. We also heard our next door neighbors' conversations, as the walls are paper thin. I don't know how the hotel might fix this, but it was definitely an inconvenience.

The best things were that it was a 2 minute walk from the beach and boardwalk. There are a lot of food choices on the boardwalk as well. Parking on the property is free as long as you display their decal. Lastly, the staff was very friendly & helpful. Very accommodating.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Yes, it's a high-end motel, but there's something nice about that in this day and age - where most hotels are corporate and soulless. Our check-in was seamless - Joey was incredibly friendly, and took the time to give us an overview of the property, where we could eat, etc. He's an asset to the place!

Before arriving, I was concerned about parking since it looked limited. We never had a problem finding a space, and the place was fully booked. They give you a parking pass to put on your windshield to avoid tickets.

The noise wasn't terrible. We had an adjoining room, and unlike other reviewers - it wasn't bad. Yes, you can hear some noise - but that's typical in any hotel/motel room. With the overhead fan on, and AC, you couldn't hear anything.

The location to the beach was excellent - a 2 minute walk.

Great location for driving into Miami for the day, or even the Everglades National Park (1.5 hours away).

We will return when in town!
