The Best in South Beach

Pros: Very clean and all the staff we dealt with were extremely accommodating.
This is our second time at this hotel and it always exceeds our expectations. I have seen reviews about needing a paint job, etc but those reviews are far off. The hotel is in impeccable shape and the staff is accommodating and friendly. Our room was magnificent, clean, very roomy with plenty of hot water. The bar staff was very friendly and we found the prices very reasonable. We kept going from the beach to the pool with plenty of chairs so we never had a problem with that. Overall I would say I will definitely be back next year and wouldn't even look at any other places to stay.

Clean, quiet South Beach hotel

We stayed one night after a cruise. The hotel was clean. It is in South Beach and was in an active yet quiet area. There were 4 of us. They do not have cots, so we shared 2 double beds. On departure day, we had free continental breakfast in view of the pool area; very relaxing. I would definitely stay here again.

Reasonably priced hotel on the beach

South Seas hotel was the perfect hotel. Clean room, courteous staff, and breakfast was included. Pool was great and the beach was better. Would definitely recommend.

Great Deal at South Beach!

Pros: The hotel was in walking distance to Lincoln Mall and Ocean Drive. We walked to Lincoln Mall every night and enjoyed the restaurants and shops.
Cons: More towel racks in the bathroom were needed as the bathrooms are small.
Location: The Lincoln Mall has wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Also the Duck Tours are so close and enjoyable.
My husband and I stayed at South Seas from February 5- February 9, 2015. This was our first trip to South Beach, and we really enjoyed our stay at South Seas. The hotel is a good deal for the price, and the location is terrific. You are in walking distance to the Lincoln Mall and Ocean Drive, plus the hotel is right on the beach. The king bed was very comfortable, the staff accommodating, and the pool and pool area very nice. I enjoyed oatmeal, yogurt, toast and fresh oranges at the free breakfast each morning. The lunch at the restaurant at the pool was delicious, as were the half priced drinks at Happy Hour. You would be hard pressed to find a better deal at South Beach.

Right in the heart of it all

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, beach!
Cons: $29 parking
Found the room the night before I rolled into town for work. Staff was good, hotel is old = small rooms, toilets you have to sit sideways on because the towel rack is in the way, and a household AC unit. I'm not picky so none of this bothered me. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the beach was 50 yards from the back door. And their was a 40% off flash sale when I booked. It got me where I wanted to be, rested, and fed.

Not as good as it looks

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast
Stayed there in December of 2012. Great location, close to Lincoln Road restuarants. The rooms are a little small. The bathroom is tiny. The carpets in the hallways were dirty. I would spend a little more money and stay somewere else.

The hotel is in great location :)

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
The lobby and restaurant are remodeled and look great! Even though my reservation was less than an hour old, the service at the front desk was fast and efficient. The service in the bar is quite good and the waitress was very friendly. The hotel was built in the 1930s so it has some wear on it. The rooms were outdated and the beds were hard. The carpet was dirty in the halls. And, the elevator has not been updated in a generation and it was a long wait each time we used it. But, the location on South Beach was great, right by the Ritz and Loews hotel. Of course, it sits right on the beach too. This is a big plus. :)
