Reviewed 20 April 2013

I admit I was very worried after I read these reviews on TripAdvisor, but at the time I didn't have much choice. I was traveling to Miami Beach for a conference on a very limited budget and the other options within walking distance of the convention center were well out of that budget.

The first thing you need to know is that you check in and check out at the Richmond Hotel (sister property on Collins road a 5 min walk away). I went straight to the property and realized this, not a big deal. Knowing that this was a budget property, I did not have high expectations, I was incredibly happy to have those expectations exceeded by Richmond Studios. In contrast to earlier reviews, this was not a shady street at all. It is nicely kept with lots of other small hotels and private apartments on each side. It's located on the same block as Sanctuary hotel and spa and their highly rated restaurant Ola. There were no homeless people or any other activity going on that made me feel unsafe at all.

The spartan but comfortable rooms are really large studio apartments. The queen-sized bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the towels were soft. I couldn't ask for much more for under $100 a night. There is a small dining table and kitchen with a mini-fridge, a microwave and a Keurig coffee machine. The TV is nothing fancy, not a flat screen and small, but I didn't even turn it on. There is also free wifi.

Was it a luxury suite, no, but you definitely get your money's worth if you are on a budget and want to be in the center of the action on South Beach.

The "suites" are a block and a half away, on a shady side street, with homeless people taking residence in the outside stairways. The outside smells like urine, the rooms have outside access (and doors that are pretty much see-through except for the broken blinds), and there is no locking gate on the street entrance. The floor was dirty (left the bottoms of my feet black just from walking), the bathroom was old, the cheap IKEA furniture was beaten up, the TV was at least 20 years old, there was no internet access (not even any to pay for), there were hairs on my towel, the air conditioner sounded like a plane taking off, you can hear everything going on outside, the kitchen is outdated and dirty and comes with no utensils or cookware... I could go on and on about how awful these rooms are. It's pretty much like staying in a crack den. I had to switch to a room at the actual Richmond Hotel because I felt unsafe. It's ridiculous how nice the Richmond Hotel is compared to their "studios" property. Ridiculous.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the actual Richmond Hotel. It's only $50 more per night and the staff will actually be accommodating.

The Richmond Studios are our budget-friendly option located on James Avenue (one block from our Collins Avenue property and the home to many other hotels). It features "old Miami Beach" charm and has been a successful lodging alternative, especially in the past six months, and has been refurbished and now offers daily housekeeping and complimentary WiFi service to our guests. Richmond Studio guests are welcome to enjoy all of the amenities of our oceanfront Richmond Hotel; which is just around the corner from this property.
