Ocean Five Hotel
- What's Included
As nice as the hotel was it was not for us. The staff were great, but we were a little disappointed compared to other USA hotels we have stayed in. The bathroom has a distinct lack of shelving and storage for personal washing items. I also did not like having to walk through the restaurant at 8pm in the evening when diners are eating while I pull my suitcases through and had to struggle up a flight of steps while being watch, bit awkward really for us and them.
Our rooms was very clean and tastefully decorated. It's a bit small but that's too be expected on a Miami Beach location. The staff was very helpful. I was less impressed with the 25 dollar a day parking and the scratch on my rental car.
We recently stayed here for 3 nights as I've always wanted to see the fabulous Art Deco buildings in Miami. The hotel is situated at the bottom of South beach right on Ocean Drive. Very friendly staff/owner and they made us feel welcome on our arrival. Room was small for 4 people but we managed ok, decor ok although some areas could do with refurbishment. Air conditioning unit was extremely noisy to the point where sleeping was difficult for me. Complimentary breakfast was included and it was basic to say the least! I ended up just having toast every morning as only other choice was watermelon, yogurt & cornflakes. The area close to our hotel was incredibly busy with people going up & down Ocean Drive posing in their very loud cars and I actually felt rather intimidated by the types of people that were around in the evenings. It gave it an undesirable undercurrent though once further into Miami it felt much nicer. Overall hotel was ok which I expected given its 3 star rating.
This place has the perfect location for access to the beach duringvthr day and restaurant or night life in the evenings! Clean comfortable and friendly staff made this an all round enjoyable place to stay. It doesn't look like much from the outside but once you're in you will have a great stay.
Check in on arrival was quick and pleasant although I didn't realise before arriving that to park the car would be I think it was $25 per day? We booked as part of a package holiday with Virgin so not hotels fault we were unaware. As with pretty much all hotels you will need to pay deposits on all rooms which is refunded on departure, I certainly had no problems.The location of this hotel is perfect it is directly on the infamous Ocean drive you leave the hotel cross the road and the stunning beach is just in front of you, the hotel will lend you a beach towel and umbrella if you wish, very handy indeed! Simply just cross the other side and you have all the lively restaurants and bars to choose from.It did feel a little odd at first walking through the hotels restaurant but it really wasn't an issue, we were on the first floor the rooms were a generous size and clean, I did think because of the location we would be kept awake by noise but this wasn't the case at all, my only complaint was the beds were a little uncomfortable for me personally but did not make my stay an unhappy one. I had seen the reviews regarding Breakfast and was a bit worried I'd noticed reviews saying dishes were plastic and they still are, this didn't bother me at all. There was selection of white/brown bread to toast with a variety of spreads, two cereals, yogurt & fruit, the orange juice was delicious and fresh coffee was available, All in all plenty to give you a good start to the day! In fact we had one evening meal in the restaurant at the hotel and it was delicious.Wifi very good (great for the teenagers)Miami is pricey especially eating and drinking out but I expected that. If you like a party Miami is the place for you, the harbour is very beautiful and you can catch a variety of boat tours including the millionaire cruise.All in all we enjoyed our stay at this hotel in Miami 🏖
