Everyone at the hotel was pleasant and helpful. The room was on the small side, but clean and comfortable. Plenty of places to eat nearby. I enjoyed my stay. I would definitely stay at the Clifton again.

Mattfu, thanks for noting how helpful our team was. We certainly have an amazing location on Collins and a block to the beach. Also I'm pleased that you found everything clean and comfortable. Thanks for noting you'd stay with us again. David.

The staff is great and made the small things that were wrong not a big deal. The tv and AC weren't working but you're out all day anyway so it didn't matter too much. The room is a little small but that's fine because again you shouldn't be in your room in Miami. The location is perfect a block away...

Thank you for noting the great location. The TV's are a little complicated because they require you work both the TV and Cable box. I am aware that the condenser went out on your AC, and fortunately Tirso - our General Manager was able to replace it same day. Thank you for staying with us and for your valued feedback....

Walking distance from everywhere. They don´t have parking lot (in case you rent one), but don´t leave it o the street. In the corner is a public parking place, cheaper than leaving the car on the street and it is safer. The rooms are good enough. Not for luxury seekers. But you get everything you need. Ice at the reception,...

Melissa, well said. We really are in the best location in South Beach. And yes, that city garage next door is a great parking option at about half the price of parking at the fancier hotels that provide parking. And yes, we have a great tour desk with some amazingly helpful staff who can ensure you see the best of...

Paper wall hotel. You can hear aby little sound or noise from neigbhors. The doors are non insulation - you hear every step at the corridor.. Very noisy AC. The windows in 1st floor are locked(if to open - you can get fine 100$). Windows view is to another building in 2m. Super small rooms.

DSCornish, Owner at Clifton Hotel South Beach, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. Our rooms are small and functional. We ask guests to keep the windows closed because many like to open them and keep the air conditioning on. If I could hear every step in the corridor, I too would be disappointed, and while I have heard occasional guests when staying on property, I did not personally...

Don't plan to stay and relax! Platform bed with the cheapest mattress. Bathroom needs to be updated. Carpet needs to be cleaned. It's half residence half hotel so they don't care about how loud they are. There is an ice machine but it's a little ice maker. Room was not cleaned daily & towels were not replenished let alone being...

Nichole - We appreciate your feedback. Our standard is to clean rooms daily - not sure what happened in your situation, it is a very rare complaint. We replenish towels using the green program - so if re-hung we do not replace. If left on the floor we do replace. Guests in South Beach can be noisy, although having stayed...

Thanks for your compliments about the friendliness and helpfulness of Tirso and his team. We're glad you found the hotel clean, and as you mentioned, walking distance to all of South Beach - no rental care needed - and if you want one for the day, we have them available ON SITE. David.

Overall this hotel is in the perfect location. You can walk to anything you want to do in South Beach. The outside of the place is dated, but most of the SOBE hotels are older from the outside. We got a deluxe queen room, which had two queen beds and an additional room with bunk beds. We never touched the...

The hotel was very trendy and close to the best part of Ocean Drive.The rooms were kind of small. There was a bar downstairs in the lobby, but we opted to just hit ocean drive. I would stay here again.

Pros: location, price Cons: cockroachs, lack of customer service, additional charges to my card, not to mention the entire hotel has a awkward smell i can't seem to pinpoint. Spend a little more and stay somewhere else. Being a "boutique" hotel is not excuse for the lack of cleanliness

If you are going to spend the night out, and not drink & drive it's perfect. Because the thin walls will allow you to listen everything. Definitely request a room in the second floor. The front desk people is moody.
