“Good place for a good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Location is convenient. Room is clean and housekeeping was done well every day. Free valet parking. We had a bay view which was beautiful especially with the full window wall. Most of the walls were mirrors so it made the room that much more chi, the full room has a modern look. Desk staff was friendly. The guard at the entrance was rude though, but she works for Caste Beach so it's not fair to judge Design Suites by her attitude. I think different companies own different rooms by how the set up looks. Hotel has pool which is not very clean and has access to the beach, but that portion of the beach is not great; but we weren't planning on swiming at that beach or using the pool so it wasn't a big deal for us.Overall we enjoyed our stay. We had a problem with a bathtub the first morning, we called the maintenance guy and told him we had a tour booked so he can come fast, he made it there within a couple of minutes, fixed it fast and didn't have any maintenance problems afterwards. There is a convenient store on the lower level floor, as well as tour agencies and a turkish spa.

Don't waste your time on this one. I booked this room with the thought that because we would not be in the room, i could save some money by going cheaper. This is a strategy that I have effectively employed in the past. In this case we got a shambles of a hotel, with multiple rental agencies occupying the same building, and some kind of weird Turkish bath/Pool feature that assured a constant stream of dubious looking people hanging out in front of the hotel. Spend a little more coin and stay somewhere decent.

This place is filthy and disgusting. We did not get what we were promised and the room and place was not as advertised. We left and tried to get our money back, to this day we are out 800 bux because they are liars. Don't stay here its super nasty!

We were given first class service from the time we arrived until the end of the week! Loved our room. It was exactly as pictured on their website. The pool was huge! Tropical music playing and bar. On the beach. Beautiful clean white sand and blue ocean. Definitely recommend.

confused from the reception till parking, this hotel has many administrators, so the door beside you is not the same as yours. weird don't?
the hotel has only one elevator, very rotten but with touch screen commands, weird again, the other elevator doesn't work.
so, you have at least 3 different receptions and the staff is not very supportive.
well if you did a reservation, good luck to your adventure, because there's no phone in the room and no room service.

Room Tip: weird and confused.

This is apartment run by some security guards.no service at all. At 12 am they told me there was some error in assignment of rooms and I have to move.
They are cheating customers calling it hotels.
I was in a room the bed was broken.

Dear Suvojit,
Did you stay with Design suites at Castle Beach? I looked for your reservation on our system and I couldn't find you.
There are different management companies in the building and we have systems in place to prevent what you are saying on the review.
Consequently, in our on line profiles we advertise as a condo hotel and we provide a service according to that.

This is a great place for Miami! It's not in SoBe but it's close and there are buses allthe time! It's really clean and thebest part: parking is free! Also, they accept deliveries from Amazon even if you are not there! I didn't even see the pool, but I saw many guests going there! I trully recommend! I found it cheaper at otel.com
