Pictures are deceiving. This hotel is outdated. The air doesn't work. The drinks are nasty. The food is horrible and sand was in the tub.

The Red South Beach will make you RED with anger!

Pros: Location was good
Cons: Don't let people smoke weed in the hotel!
Thermostat did not work. Fixture were falling of the walls, Hotel stunk from marijuana! The only thing that would fix it would to refund my money. Hotel made weekend depressing! Jimmy Stoitsiades

No complaints

I was greeted by the valet guys outside, who helped with our luggage and were very welcoming. The receptionist were friendly and helpful. The hotel charges an $11 daily amenities fee, but it's worth it, since free breakfast, complimentary alcoholic beverage between 5-7, beach chairs, and towels were all included. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. Everything worked and we had hot water. I've read other reviews and was a little concerned but everything was fine for me! The food was yummy and the happy hour drinks were even better! Buy one get one drinks! Can't beat that! I cancelled my rental car after I had read the reviews about valet and parking and caught a Lyft to and from the airport. $18-20 for a Lyft to the hotel. Prob a lot cheaper that way. Heads up this hotel is not considered south beach it's mid beach but it is a block away from the beach, which is nice. I would stay again. Hope this helped!

1 night more than enough

Stayed 1 night happy that was all-arrived at 4 pm was gone by 6 am wanted out of that town and hotel. Bad communication - small dated room. The bar is a total scam and rip off - careful on the happy hour special they don't tell you all the stipulations until after they pour and hit you for $18 a drink 6 oz!!! Also the menu under the door scam from local business / order food then it never shows give credit card and they drain your account / do not order from them and the front desk never told us - that was it we were gone never to return

Hello dear guest, we're very sorry to read that you were not pleased during your visit. We appreciate your feedback as it allows us to improve. Please note that the Red is a hotel maintaining its authenticity. Built during the Art Deco era, small spaces were common then and is seen throughout most Art Deco hotels in South Beach. We regret that you had a bad experience while ordering food from an external source. We specifically advise all guests and leave a note in all rooms stating that this companies are faulty and to avoid ordering from them. Our concierge and front desk can happily provide guests with recommendations of trustworthy places to eat. We thank you again for having stayed with us and for helping us improve our service.

Needs updating and very small bathroom

My family of 4 stayed in a room with two double beds which was expected but the bathroom was VERY SMALL and that part I was not pleased with... we also had a pool view which was cool until your ready to turn in for the night and you hear all the noise coming from the bar.. I traveled with my husband, 10, and 14 year old and when we were ready to relax after a busy day we were surprised the cable was OUT and it wouldn't be available at all... all in all we made the best of it and the staff was very nice, but I wouldn't stay there when we visit again

Hello MMKL, thank you for letting us know about your experience in our hotel! We are sorry to hear that you were unsatisfied with your room. The hotel's building is Art Deco architecture dating back to 1930, and so we try to make use of the space as best as possible. Unfortunately, during the time of your stay, there was a general maintenance done to all cable providers of the area and so the TV could not function properly. We are very sorry this happened when you were here. All of your comments will help us improve and we thank you for that. We hope you give us the chance to receive you again and make of your stay a wonderful experience.

good hotel for the cost

the hotel is in a great location, across the street from the beach, right on collins ave, in the heart of south beach... but other than that the hotel is very, VERY outdated and not very clean. our bathroom had a funny smell, the shower would not drain, the tvs are tiny and old fashioned.. my suggestion would be for them to pay more attention to detail. but we did get what we paid for.

Dear Lili, Thank you for your input. I apologize the hotel did not meet or exceed your expectations. The hotel did undergo a full renovation 4 years ago. I have shared your concerns about the bathroom with our housekeeping team. Please do stay with us should you come back to Miami Beach and let us earn back your trust. Kind Regards, Ronan

Close to everything.

The staff really makes you feel welcome upon arrival. The beach is with walking distance, access to tours and other adventures are also readily available. The Borak restaurant's food was so so, but always awesome service. Overall, my stay there was worth the price.

Great getaway

Pros: Eduardo the receptionist, and everybody else was great and accommodating. Except pool service and restaurants service.
Cons: They could hire servers that actually speak English and know how to actually do their job.
Location: 1 block away from beach, 15 blocks away from where the strip with all the bars are. I recommend über pool. Worked great and paid less than $5each time
Everything was great, can't say anything bad about Miami or the hotel we stayed at. Eduardo at the reception was the best. He upgraded us to a pool side room free of charge which was great. He also gave us directions and advice on what to do and see while we are there. He was very Pleasant and accommodating. Thank you Eduardo for making our stay pleasant and with no hiccups. On the other hand, service there is not the best. The server we had, tall blonde possibly Eastern European girl, could barely speak any English, forgot part of our order and overall forgot about us even though she was not busy at all. And that didn't happen only once. But whatever. We didn't let that ruin our awesome vacation, after all we had a great room, very nice and clean, awesome shower and housekeeping was on point.
