Very close the beach!

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Its convenience. Thats it
Cons: The double beds should be bigger. They need to offer lobby amenities.
Location: The beach is literally a 3o second walk. Everything you need is in walking distance
I had a good experience. The hotel did not have a lobby. The rooms are kinda small and you have to ask for everything that you need. I didnt expect to much with the super low price.

Great Beach Location

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Great location in the heart of the South Beach experience. Staff was great. Big Props to my new friends Suzi, Jenny and Patty. Not a 4 star hotel but a great place to crash and experience South Beach. Clean, air conditioned and hot water was good enough for me.

I love Ms. PATTY

Posted Aug 20, 2014
I have been coming to Miami for 5 years now for vacation. 3 of those 5 years we stayed at the Starlite. The rooms are comfortable, the location is perfect, and Ms. Patty at the front desk makes our stay well worth coming back.

Miami 2014

The hotel is old, but the location was wonderful. With the beach right across the street and Wet Willies right next door, it's a great spot!

Perfect for those on a budget

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: The location.
Cons: Thicker Walls, Continental Breakfast, and a coffee maker.
Location: Right on Ocean Drive. The beach is right across the street,hundreds of restaurant to dine at and tons of stores to shop at one block west
Location was great, the beach is right across the street. The staff was friendly and their to help. Valet was fast and had our car delivered within 10 minutes. Family and children friendly environment. Only bad part was we were awaken at 4 a.m by the people next door arriving.

Not recommended for more than 1 night

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: cable, nice sized bed
Cons: Cleanliness, needs carpet, more towels, central air needed, bigger and cooler elevator, bigger lobby
Location: Right across from the beach. A LOT of restaurants and shopping. Have plenty of money. Food and drinks are overpriced. Liquor store on every block.
Hotel was really hot. Elevator probably was the hottest place in the building. The lobby was really small. It was basically a hallway. Barely had room to walk when there other people around. Lobby is also the place for employees to prepare drinks for customers. The only air conditioned part is the room. Which has a wall unit. Pillows had stains on them. Maid never made up the bed. Only gave new towels. Floor needed to be swept and mopped. It didn't feel clean, so I started wearing my sandals when walking around the room. Tub wasn't clean and fills up fast when taking a shower. I think something was on the sheets because I itched a lot.

Walk to everything

Posted Aug 6, 2014
Pros: Out of room, from the 3rd floor, and at the water ( Atlantic Ocean ) literally in 5 minutes or less, walking normal to slow !!
Cons: Had to go to 1st floor for ice ( big whoop ) No a/c in the elevator or hallways, but my room was freezing cold when I wanted it.
Location: Food - party - clubs - shopping - ocean - all close - anything you could possibly want is all nearby. Except grocery, the closet thing was a Wallgreen
Didn't need a taxi for anything, once I was there. You can walk to everything, and on weekends this place is a riot. Lots of people outside, but was quiet inside, mostly due to the a/c unit. A small trade off, when you are in Miami in August. You will be in the epicenter of all the South Beach experience. If your younger or 52 like me & think like a 21 year old this is the place for you. And the beach, wow, walk outside across the street ( 2 small lane traffic going very slow, Ocean dr ) across 100 yards of sand over a dune to the main beach & 200 yards down to the water - AWESOME - got to be one of the best beaches on the planet. I was in Hawaii for a week & as nice as their beaches are - South Beach is better.
