Cons: Moped bathroom floors and vaccum everyday would be nice.
Location: You do a lot of walking. Traffic is heavy don't recommend driving around unless your familiar with area. Parking is full and caotic.
The staff at ESSEX Hotel where AWESOME! Very helpful with everything! Great location and the bed was nice and comfy. Anything we needed they bought too the room. From a ice bucket to more shampoo they where there!

Nice hotel in good location.

Posted 30-Aug-2014
Pros: The room was clean and comfortable. There was an iron & ironing board, and a hair dryer.
Cons: It was embarassing when a staff in the breakfast room stopped us and told us to throw those plastic cutlery, cups, bowls & plates in the bin.
Location: Five minutes walks to the beach. Lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Great just to swim and walk in the garden along the beach.
The hotel staffs were welcoming. I had used few local calls and I was pleased to find out later that it was free. It was lovely to have free lime drinks in a cooler provided opposite the reception counter, after a hot day out.

Decent hotel, very reasonably priced.

Overall a good hotel if you want a cheap place right on south beach. The facility itself is a little dingy, especially the reception area. For the money, not bad.

We had a great time! The hotel was in a great area and away from most of the noise of Ocean Drive, yet close enough to join the party when needed.

Besides from the water temperature in the shower my overall experience was GREAT! I would definitely come back and tell a friend. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Great location, very standard hotel

Posted 27-Jul-2014
Hotel is in a great location-walking distance to the beach and Oceans Drive. The entrance to the hotel is great-nice and clean, seems modern and the staff are extremely friendly. But the rooms in itself are very basic (judging by the room I stayed in with a friend): -television signal is very poor -no waste basket in the room (only in the bathroom) -no tea/coffee/kettle facilities -no safe in the room to store passports and other valuables -very limited closet space, had to keep all clothes in suitcase as there wasnt much space to put them anywhere else -the water for the shower/sink was cold on several occasions resulting in cold showers (not the greatest first thing in the morning) even when the taps/showers were left running for 10-15 mins it was still cold. -the power for the water from the shower was very poor -no ventilation in the room or bathroom. Unable to open the windows for fresh air Staying in this hotel felt more like staying in a hostel than a hotel. I felt a little mislead by other reviews. All thought the stay was ok, I would not stay here again unless the rooms are fully renovated and refurbished.
