Caribbean friendliness

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: EXCELLENT location convenient for walking almost anywhere, or just take the 25 cent city bus. They lend you beach towels and toys. No kids was nice
Cons: bathroom fixtures might be updated, and providing drinking water would be nice.
Location: very convenient to restaurants, bars, beach and shopping (Lincoln Road pedestrian mall).
Friendly & helpful staff. They lend you beach towels and provide a good breakfast (bagels, waffles, cereal, bananas, juice, danishes) until noon, which is highly appreciated for us night owls. Be sure NOT to accept room #4 as there are workers congregating below the window starting at 7:30am. After we insisted on changing, the staff acquiesced and the rest of our stay was quiet and peaceful.

Too expensive for what they offer.

Posted Jul 11, 2014
Old hotel, old furniture but clean. NO wify in the room. For me that was terrible. They have wify but not available from my room. No parking space nearby. But the continental breakfast was ok.

Fine for the price

Went in off season so it was really inexpensive. You get what you pay for, nothing more.

Very convenient and walking distance to the beach

Posted Jun 18, 2014
I had a good experience at the Island House. The pictures you see on expedia are very honest. The hotel was very peaceful and the staff were friendly. I would suggest you bring your own soap and wash towels and such but everything was good. It makes you feel like you're in a real apartment. It also has free breakfast!

Small hotel in the South Beach area.

Posted Jun 5, 2014
Excellent location. Close to beach and restaurants. Nice staff, but only one was fluent in English. Hotel needs renovation. Parked in the recommended government parking lot and vehicle was broken into.

Our experience at Island House was great. We heard a lot of negative comments about this hotel. NOT TRUE. Room was clean. Staff was professional. Breakfast every morning. Close to everything. Quiet rooms at night.

Good hotel very close to the beach

Posted May 12, 2014
Pros: Staff was very nice and the location is perfect.
Cons: The pillows on the beds are hardly pillows. That was the most uncomfortable thing I've ever slept on. Those pillows need to be replaced.
Location: The Island House is in the heart of South Beach and is right near everything. The location is perfect. 1 block away from Ocean Dr and the beach.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for just 1 night after a cruise and are glad we did. The hotel is in a great location and the staff are very friendly, but the "pillows" in the room were about as comfortable as sleeping on rocks and there were bugs in the bathroom. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking to stay in South Beach for a short time but would not recommend this for a longer stay. The guy at the desk was very accommodating and we could not ask for a better location.
