I needed to ask twice to check the security box, It wasn't working. Also the air conditioning wasn't working, but they fixed it right away.
Location is great, Staff is even better. They did lend me bikes, beach chairs and towels. Breakfast is good (considering it is continental). Beach is just in front. Consider it is not the newest building (but what is in south beach).

We don't mind loud music but some may as the hotel is located directly on the road next to a bunch of restaurants and bars.
We had a great stay at hotel ocean! It is newly renovated and has big rooms and a cute style! The location was great, in the middle of where to be during your stay in South Beach If you want to be around night life. The beach is right across the street!

It IS South Beach, and the noisy bars in the hotel and across the street were really loud and going VERY late. The windows kept out most of the noise, but the noise of the AC didn't even drown out the load music in the evenings. The worst part, I came back to my room one afternoon and my door was propped open...I thought maybe housekeeping was coming right back. I left it that way, waiting 30 minutes with no one coming to the room before calling the front desk to complain. I have no idea how long my room had been "open" for anyone to come in. My laptop, my clothes, important business documents... everything could have easily been stolen. Luckily nothing was, but it was an egregious error! I travel almost weekly all over the country and I've never had that happen before...hope it never does again!
I was there for Art Basel and various art shows, so the location was conveneint. The staff at the front desk was very accomodating and nice, including Natalie and Robert, and Pablo, too.

If you go, do not get a room front of house. ( if you want to sleep that is ) they play loud music for the restaurant all day till late and you can hear it in the room like it was in the room. Poor breakfast.
Location is good on the Beach, nice room with big bathroom.

WiFi is not good if you are in for business. Too slow. Room'S floor was not clean. Furnitures were dirty and old.
The young women at reception (sorry I forgot her name) was very very nice and helpfull! The location is great. Nice breakfast.

The breakfast was kind of disapponting. Small amount of food and there is no hot water to make a cup of tea and you can't order it. There was a really rude female employee at the breakfast who been angry and rude with three of us just because we ordered hot water. I wish i knew her name
First of all i would like to mention the friendly and professional staff at the front desk who were really helpful and welcoming.Second,the location was excellent it was close to many things beach, restaurants and stores. I loved being there.

Properly is listed as pet friendly, but after we checked in, they advised us that they did not allow pets. They did allow us to stay, but charged us an extra $50 a night as a pet fee. Also, they had a band that played well past 2:00am every night of our stay, even on week days, right out side out window. Our window was also broken and would not close all the way.

1. The constant loud music from 9am to 2am from the bar/restaurant at the front of the hotel. This is why I consider my comfort level to be poor. 2. Being put in a room that was not renovated and was directly under the services on the roof so that in addition to the 'music' there was the 24hr noise that sounded like a vehicle revving up! 3. To the credit of the manager I was moved to a newly renovated room which was very nice but it was directly over the bar/restaurant and so the music was even louder. Ear plugs are a must if you stay in an Ocean Front room(which I paid extra for) at this hotel because even when the music does go off there is the constant noise from the people passing on the street until all hours!!! 4. Breakfast was poor quality if you ate late because the hot food had not been refreshed and so had congealed. 5. My room was not serviced one day due to under staffing I was told. 6. Beach towels and beach chairs are an extra 15 dollars a day and you have to carry the chair to the beach yourself!!! 7. If you are looking for party central this is the hotel for you. However, if like me you are looking for the luxury and relaxation which the hotel website promises with close proximity to the the hustle and bustle of south beach then you will be very disappointed indeed. This hotel on 12th street marks the beginning of the constant party vibe and LOUD music. The only respite is when you are out of the hotel. Like other hotels on this part of Ocean Drive it should tell people the truth about what their experience will be then there would not be any unhappy customers. 8. I want to leave the hotel early and so have requested a refund for my last two nights so I can move to a quiet hotel and get some sleep before I fly the 9 hours back to Europe and as of yet I have had no response from the manager to my request!
1. I liked the proximity to the beach 2. I liked the staff, they were very polite. 3. The 15 dollars per day also covered access to water, fruit, coffee and snacks in reception which was convenient. 4. I liked the proximity to all the amenities that South Beach has to offer like lincoln mall, the art deco area, museums etc....the location is great.

Rooms to small and it wasn't like I expected them to be. And the rooms definitely don't look like the pictures on the website. The breakfast was cold.

We took a red-eye into Miami and I informed the hotel we would be arriving very early. We got there and tried to check-in. The receptionist said the room would be ready by 12. She said she'd call me. I called a little after 12, was told by same receptionist room wont be ready til 3. Still didn't receive a call. Came back to hotel around 330, room was ready. Receptionist never called me back. Receptionist never explained to me the amenities of using the beach chairs, towels, or the other pools. The description of the room indicated that we would have our own elevator to our penthouse. It was the same elevator as the other rooms, you just have a key to enter & press the 5th floor. The elevator opens right up to your room. Because the elevator opens directly to your room, there is a door for the stairs. It is locked from the outside. But it was a little suspicious. The sliding door leading to the patio did not lock. We were very concerned our safety and the safety of our belongings. The microwave didn't work. We had an ironing board but no iron. We had a leak in the bathroom sink. The sliding doors for the shower kept getting stuck. Ice machine was on the bottom floor, outside the hotel. A lot of wasted space in the room. Mirrors were hung in odd places, not even close to bathroom or dressing area. It was a very odd experience. Of all the complaints we made, they only refunded us the resort fee for 2 days. If it wasn't for the price of the space, we wouldn't have stayed there. We probably will never return to this hotel again. We were very disappointed with this hotel.
I liked that we were right on Ocean Dr. The beach was across the street. Very close to a lot of shops and restaurants. It was a great deal for the penthouse, 1600sqft.

I'm going to start by saying we would stay here again - but we wouldn't bother paying the extra for the Penthouse - here's why: The curtains in the room were on a wire cable which was loose/falling down and not in a good state, some curtains were missing. It all needs to be ripped out and replaced - it would cost less than $300 to do this so I have no idea why they haven't done so. The seat covers on the sofa were missing and they had covered the cushions in a sheet. I would expect if you have a sofa in a hotel room, you have 2 sets of covers and change them up when they are stained. The back cushions had questionable stains on them (!) The microwave didn't work at all (then take it out of the room!) and I really had to push to get (only 4!) glasses sent up to the room by telling them to stick them on my bill if it was such a problem. There was this ancient old hifi system with a tape deck and a cd that must have come off the Ark and belongs in the trash (the top of it was all stained/damaged too) better not to have one than to have that so I hid it away. Overall we felt the space fell short of our expectations. It felt like it had been partied out from Spring Breakers, but really, that's no excuse, we expected it to look like the pictures on their website - is that really too much to ask? I emailed the hotel this feedback after we returned home and they have not even had the courtesy to respond.
I'd love to be 100% positive about this hotel because the location is fantastic and the staff were lovely. We chose the Penthouse because we were there for a music conference and wanted the extra room to work and entertain. The room was huge, the Jacuzzi worked well, the balcony was great, 360 degree views, lovely big bathroom, huge bed, very comfortable, great pillows - slept really well, 2 massive tvs, staff were efficient and helpful. Good WIFI and also got WIFI from The Tides next door.

The manager was great at dealing with problems I had. Some of the staff were great too.

It was very noisy. The metal doors slammed and people were very loud you could hear all the noise. Difficult to sleep. Maybe if the metal rooms doors were changed it would help.
Location and staff were wonderful and helpful. Breakfast was great- nice selection of warm foods. Loved the balcony room very roomy. Music was nice in the evenings..
