Honestly, after reading review upon review of hotels in South Beach leading up to my April vacation, I was really starting to think I wouldn't find anything satisfactory in the price range my group was looking for... eventually I just sucked it up and book the Kent Hotel expecting the bare minimum but also being okay with that. We were just a group of 20-somethings that needed a place to sleep with minimal amenities anyway. After arriving to the hotel, I was happy to see that many of the things I had read in the reviews were not a bother for us. The main lobby was fine, no bugs, rooms were cleaned very well daily, front desk staff and the cleaning staff were also very friendly. Our group's only very MINOR complaints would be that the rooms didn't have microwaves (which we could obviously manage around), that twice a staff member entered our room while we were sitting in there and they never knocked or announced themselves, not very many outlets in the room due to it being an old building, and the strong odor of marijuana on the second floor on several occasions. Like I said, we dealt with all of these things and none of them ruined our trip. The kindness of the staff outweighed any of the negatives. It was in a great location, close to everything, we pretty much walked everywhere, and when we did request our car from the valet service that we used at our hotel, we never waited longer than about 15 minutes for the car. If I ever make it to Miami again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
