Great location perfect for visiting beach and shops. Best meal of our vacation at Ola restaurant downstairs. Average continental breakfast at hotel. Bathroom adequate and bed comfortable. Good price for location in South Beach. Didn't use pool in adjacent hotel and seemed inconvenient but nice to have option.

Thank you for this wonderful review. We are so glad you had a good time in South Beach but you are quite right: your stay was much too short. Come back to Sanctuary for another comfortable stay. Hopefully, very soon.

Location, location, location...and nice staff, although a bit too laid back (they are helpless when some food is missing for breakfast, while no one in the kitchen cares). BUT rooms are in a bad condition (non functioning lamps, peeling paint, shower that needs refreshing...). The icing on the cake was that when it was raining on the 2nd day of...

It is filthy! Walls are dirty and need paint, floors and grout in disrepair and gross. We left found another room and sent a bellman to get our luggage. Never consider this! Gates Hotel is awesome at a fair price.

Very nice hotel with a confort room. Small kitchen available at wonderful location. Close to beach, restaurants and Lincoln street. The ambient is cool and the Ola restaurant appears to be on the rise. Staff friendly and attentive.

AC in the room stopped working more than a couple of times. After the second time we told the staff, they sent someone to reset it for the last time and then told us that the hotel was full and we were pretty much on our own. The bathtub being in the ground made it very difficult to get in...

Great place to stay at a very reasonable price. The sister hotels are great if you want to use a pool or go to the beach and the location is perfect. I highly recommend staying there. There are so many dumps in South Beach and you cannot go wrong staying there.
