Perfect oceanfront view

Posted 15-Apr-2014
Pros: right on the beach
Cons: bedding/pillows
Location: perfect location - just a short cab ride to South Beach/Ocean Drive/Lincoln Road
The hotel staff was excellent. The hotel had some issue with certain amenities being unavailable but over all it was a great stay in the perfect room.

Medium range hotel

Posted 6-Apr-2014
Totally enjoyed our stay in our ocean front room at best western miami beach. Staff very friendly and helpful! Food there a little pricey. Not many places to eat within walking distance. Food was very good here. Loved the fresh squeezed orange juice!! Right on the beach was awesome!! Needs a inside lounge. Bar outside by pool but was a little pricey. Loved it all. For medium range hotel.watched sunrise every morning from balcony of our room

Not good

Posted 19-Mar-2014
Says has parking but really on a few spots and our Prius hardly fit. Room was not clean. Hair in the tub. I could hear the entire conversation of the people in the room next to us. Pool area was dirty. Location is great.

Last glimpse of sunrise

Posted 8-Mar-2014
Pros: Ocean view off balcony
Cons: The access to pool and parking was a bit weird, but not a deal breaker.
Location: Short taxi ride to South Beach if one is so inclined for that madness
Booked this for our last night before flying west, hoping for a beautiful sunrise off the Atlantic as our final goodbye to southern Florida. Lovely view and clean beach.

Dated Hotel

Posted 27-Feb-2014
Though our room had a great location over looking the ocean, the room was dated, had a faint smell, and needed a lot of TLC. For the price on the beach was decent, but likely would look for another option next time.

Right on the beach, but ....

Posted 26-Feb-2014
Pros: On the beach.
Cons: Maintain property! Invest in beach towels & make them available. Update your gym. Ensure vending machines stocked. Why does this have to be said?
The only real positive about this hotel is that it sits right on the beach. Room was comfortable and clean. Negatives: long walk to Art Deco district and Lincoln Rd (at 41st street and art deco starts at 16). No iron in the room. Not a lot of places to eat close by. Staff not terribly friendly. All vending machines we checked were empty. Trying to get a towel for the beach was an ordeal. Room cleaned once and no fresh towels left, had to call. ATM in lobby out of service. Gym was tiny and contained only one weight in a dumbbell set (one 15, one 20 and nothing higher than 20-some of us rely on hotel gyms to maintain our routines.) No 'hotel store' to purchase items. This is a no-frills hotel at a frills price. It's a shame that a hotel has seemingly given up on simply trying to maintain its property, much less provide great service, because it knows it will get occupants because of its beachside location. I would never stay here again, and would not recommend it to anyone else.
