Great quiet street with nice ambiance

Posted Mar 31, 2015
Stayed in a two bedroom double - separated by adjoining bathroom. Great setup for a low cost, reasonably large room two blocks off the beach.

What a wonderful surprise!

Posted Mar 29, 2015
Pros: Everything
Location: Great location, two blocks from the beach, across from a supermart, bus stop to get to downtown Miami, close to Lincoln Rd. Mall, restaurants.
I bought a flight & hotel package through Expedia for my daughter and I, (first time of me booking a hotel through a website) booked a double with queen size beds. When I open the door, all I saw was only one queen size bed and my first thought was "I was cheated, this is not what I booked, I have to let them know and I hope they have a room with two beds available to give me without paying any extra money; this happens to me because I paid for a room without actually seeing it first". That's when my daughter said: wait mom. We stepped into the room and was pleasantly surprised to discover that there was also a little hallway that lead into another room! So we ended up with 2 bedrooms, each one with a queen size bed, tv, air conditioner and the regular furniture, with their own front doors to the hotel hallway, separated by a little hallway that housed a mini refridge,coffee maker and microwave. It was wonderful that each of us had our own privacy, watching our own separated TVs at night, regulating our separated ACs. And very clean. All of the staff where very friendly, helpful and great at giving advise. And it was a really short walk to the restaurant in the mornings to get the complimentary breakfast, just a short beautiful block which everybody seem to enjoy strolling while taking pictures of the beautiful architectual details of Española Way. And it was only two blocks from the beach I will absolutely stay at this hotel again when visiting South Beach

Esperienza a Miami

Posted Mar 28, 2015
Pros: La posizione
Cons: Tutto
Location: Ottima posizione a pochi passi da Ocean Drive
Albergo vecchio e decadente; camere piccole, colazione ridicola! Unica cosa positiva la posizione: collocato nella famosa ' espanola way'

Good choice for the price, friendly staff

Posted Mar 25, 2015
Cons: Toilets had to be repaired twice and breakfast is quite basic.
Location: Espanola Way, cool for going out, 3 blocks from the beach
We were particularly happy about the double deluxe room, which comprises 2 separate corners, so it is almost like everyone having their own room.

Pros: The Location and Character
Cons: The hotel is old and needs some renovations, which they are currently working on.
Location: Location is wonderful. Just far enough away from the beach to not be too crazy, yet close enough for an impromptu late night walk.
We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Clay. No this is not a fancy hotel, however what it lacks in glamor it doubles with character. The location could not be better and the staff could not be nicer. If we ever come back to South Beach, we will definitely stay here.

Good location

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Don't overbook your rooms and expect people to be happy about being transferred to another hotel.
Location: Walking distance to the beach, shopping, and restaurants.
We booked our room in advance and checked twice to make sure it was confirmed Then when we appeared in the lobby with our luggage we were told they did not have a room for us and would take us over to another hotel several blocks away. Since we had already unpacked our rental car and looked forward to the convenience of being able to walk to restaurants, we were very disappointed. Actually mad is more like it. I was tired and said I was going to sit there until they gave us the room we had booked. So I did and used my IPAD to catch up on my Facebook and email while I was sitting there. The desk person went to talk to someone in the back (supposedly) and then came back and said there was a room we could use. Hmmmmm....what was this all about?

Leuk hotel vlakbij het strand en Espanola Way

Posted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: Hotel ligt aan de Espanonala Way. Vol met restaurantjes. Een drukte van jewelste, maar wel heel erg gezellig!
Cons: Het ontbijt was zeer matig.
Location: Huur een fiets om langs de boulevard te fietsen! Heel veel te zien!
Prima middenklasse hotel midden in het drukke Miami beach centrum. Prijs kwaliteit goed. Als je voor je rust gaat, zoek dan een ander hotel. Wel wat rumoerig, maar erg gezellig! Ontbijt is zeer beperkt. Zoek een leuk ontbijt restaurant. Er zijn er genoeg.

Older Hotel

Posted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: This Hotel is older and quaint.
Cons: Rooms definitely need upgrading which they seem to be doing but please separate the guests from it.
Location: This Hotels location is perfect which is why we stayed here
We were assigned a second floor room. We had to walk through and over extension cords and tools as men worked on the lower rooms just below us. Disappointed that we were assigned this room subjecting us to the construction below.
