Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is in a great location, only a few blocks from Ocean Drive. It is part of Espanola way, which is a strip of street cafes and restaurants with a Spanish feel. The lobby has tons of local character. The staff were exceptionally attentive and helpful. Since the hotel is quite old, the rooms are very small and basic...

The road outside at the moment is being dug-up. I haven't reflected this in my review but it's worth noting/checking because it's a mess and very noisy. The room is sparse but OK and very clean. Needs a bedside lamp as the main lights are blindingly bright, I resorted to using my phone light. It's valet parking at $32 per...

The location is great and the price not too bad considering how expensive Miami Beach can be, but I wouldn't recommend the hotel. Very old fashioned, very noisy because of all the refurbishment works, smelly, poor housekeeping, unfriendly staff.

I arrived at the Clay Hotel early Friday. They had convenient valet parking and I was immediately greeted by the front desk, who checked me in very fast. I was escorted to my room and extremely happy with the room. The room was super clean, everything from the blankets, pillow sheets, drapes, shower curtain- very clean with not 1 piece...

I had a small room that had just been renovated. Freshly painted, nice bathroom fairly quiet except for some light construction in the hallway. Light breakfast. Some at the front desk during the day appeared indifferent but Peter working n the evenings was very hospitable.

I'm giving this hotel a 5 star rating because of the price, location and added amenities. Complimentary beach towels and chairs is a nice touch. Granted the complimentary continental breakfast could have been better but it was enough to get us through until lunch. The room was clean which is more important to us than the size or the decor....

I booked this hotel because of the location and it's historic charm. Both were good. The location is a nice area with many restaurants and the beach 2 blocks away. As other travelers have noted, I was able to get a beach chair for free with my room booking. I traveled mid-week and they were able to accommodate a early...

Very clean room, excellent management. Enjoyed the history, location and set up. We were down the street, but did not mind at all. Would have given the hotel 5 stars, however the free breakfast was unfortunately, laughable. I would still highly recommend

We absolutely loved our stay at The Clay Hotel. The staff was very friendly specially Nini at the reception, she was very sweet, always smiling. The room was bigger than what we imagined. Everything was clean. Definitely coming back soon.
