The hotel is great. The staff is even better.

It was an impromptu stay. Very much a pleasant surprise. Was taken aback at how nice and sometimes funny the staff was. Very accommodating. Love them!

An enjoyable DECO experience

Pros: Location
Cons: A/c noise, sink drain
The facility was clean and very convenient to shops, the beach, bike rentals and numerous dining options and on a one-time basis it was worth the price (mid $300's per night x 2). Although quite small, the room (306) was clean and nicely appointed. The air conditioning system appeared to be quite modern but despite this, it was extremely noisy and there was nothing to be done about it, the king bed was comfortable. The bathroom was remodeled but also quite small, the shower was reminiscent of a cruise ship in size and the sink did not drain. Because of the building's age, it had but single public elevator which was not particularly fast because of demand. The staff was always pleasant and with that we enjoyed our stay. PS - Don't forget about the $30+ per night parking fee...

Good hotel but very noisy

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast
The hotel and the room were clean. The whole is a little on the old fashionned side, and the room was a little small but ok for the price and location I guess. If you are not a heavy sleeper, I would not recommend this hotel. The walls are so thin we felt like our room neighbours were inside of our bedroom and could hear every single word they said as well as the doors closing. the resort fee of 11 usd per day is a little of a rip off, the amenities are the beach towels (ok) but the chairs are dodgy and the included continental breakfast is quite cheap on quality. Except from that, our stay was pretty pleasant.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, Poor breakfast
My friend and I Travel in the month of July 2011. When we first arrive at the hotel, we had to take a double look to see if this was the correct address. The place had construction boarding posted up outside the front. We decide to give it a try thinking that are room will not have the same feeling , but we was wrong, we should of turn around to start a new search for a better hotel, when we first walk up to the lobby and seen the old dirty out dated carpet and furniture. We goes to our room to find that one of the window was fully boarded.The room was small as for only one individual can occupied it. the best thing in that room was the bathroom and the comfy of the bed. Then to be on vacation with the noisy of the construction rambling, wasn't pleasant at all. The continental breakfast was boiled eggs and cantaloupe fruit everyday, the daily snacks was apples and oranges. Don't waste your time and money on this hotel. I hope they improve in the near future.

Always enjoy my stay here

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
A nice little hotel on south beach. A great location that doesn't have the hectic dining in the front. It has a nice seating area in the front to just sit with a drink, enjoy the breeze, and watch people walk by. The staff was very courteous and even let me check out a little late. This is my favorite place to stay in south beach.

Absolutely wonderful

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This is one of my favorite hotels in South Beach. It's quiet and clean. Right on Ocean Drive, close enough to the action but far enough so you're not right in the middle of it. Directly across the street from the beach. The staff is wonderful, friendly and very accomodating. The rooms are clean. The bathrooms a bit small but serve their purpose. Every morning there's breakfast served in the lobby, ranging from eggs, waffles, cereal, fruit, pastries, coffee, juice & milk. Every afternoon they have snack put out for your convenience. There's a bar when you walk into the lobby and drink specials are offered daily. It's perfect for the solo traveler or for the family that travels together. Definitely enjoyed my stay there and would stay over and over again.

One of my most favorite hotels on Ocean Drive

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The hotel is situated right across the street from the beach. Close enough to the action but far enough away from it so that you're not right in the middle of the party. It's quaint and the staff makes you feel at home. They're very friendly and accomodating. Every morning you can help yourself to breakfast including fresh made waffles. In the afternoon they keep snacks out in the lobby, which you are also welcome to. The rooms have safes and are equipped with beach chairs for your day trips across the way. I've stayed at this hotel before and would stay over and over again. Absolutely amazing.

Exactly what I wanted/needed!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Winterhaven hotel was all that I thought it would be and it was just what the doctor ordered for a week of solo relaxation!! It was convenient to the beach and Lincoln Rd and plenty of clubs, but it's location toward the north end of Ocean Drive made for some serene times as well. The hotel staff was pleasant and made me feel at home right away. Comfortable bed...I guess that's why I kept missing the included breakfast! Oh well, that means I had plenty of good nights...Most definitely will be back and would recommend it highly. By the way, I've been in the hospitality industry for the last 6 years and I know good accommodations and good service. See for yourself!

Great Hotel as Long as You Understand What It Is

The first thing you have to understand is that this is an old building. That means that the elevator is slow, the rooms are small, and the walls are VERY thin. When I say the walls are thin, I mean that we could hear the guy next door snoring and participate in the argument the couple next door was having in the middle of the night. If you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. It is on the quieter end of Ocean Drive, so you don't have the club noise that other hotels on Ocean Drive would have. On the positive side, the staff is super friendly. Our room was exceptionally clean. They forgot to re-stock our towels a couple of times, but they took care of it immediately once we contacted the front desk. Unlike most of the hotels on Ocean Drive, Winterhaven does not have a restaurant out front. This means you can sit out on the front porch to people watch during the heat of the afternoon or while sipping a cocktail from the martini bar while watching the moon rise over the palm trees. As long as you understand that the building is old, it's a great place to stay.
