We stayed at the Casa Grande for a night before a cruise. I'd booked through Hotwire, paying much less than the rate through the hotel or other sites. At that discounted rate, I would say the cost of the room is mostly for the location - and not the room itself.

The lobby gives the appearance of a stereotypical South Beach boutique hotel - the saltwater aquarium, club music, nice seating area all give off a hip, funky feel, but the upper floors don't reflect this vibe. From the upstairs hallways on, the hotel is in dire need of a facelift. (To be fair, after getting a glimpse of other rooms through open doors, it seems not all rooms are the same - I can only speak to common areas and our room, 306).

The hallway reaked of old cigarette. The room doors needed a fresh coat of paint, and inside our room, the carpet badly needed to be replaced - there were big rips and even holes in it. We had no view - in fact, we looked directly into another window about two feet away. The general cleanliness of the room was somewhere between iffy and okay, except for the kitchen, which was spotless.

On the flip side, however, the room was huge, and travelling with kids, it was especially nice to have all the extra space. Best of all, however, and probably worth the price, was the location. There's an entrance to Miami Beach immediately across the street, and great restaurants lining the street in either direction. Casa Grande is literally in the middle of it all.

I'm not sure if I would book this hotel on a future trip, but wouldn't complain if I ended up there again. Just be warned: there's a $25 resort fee for their "breakfast" (stale cookies, and the worst coffee in the world, which isn't even served with milk or cream but whitener, of all things), beach towels (which we didn't use given the cold weather), and wi-fi Internet.

Even if you pay your total through bookit.com or expedia when you arrive at the the hotel they will charege you a 25 dlls extra fee per night! They say is for breakfast (coffe, oranges and cookies), beach towels and internet wich in their website they say is complimentary! So I think that for the money, you can stay at a much better place!

Dear Past Guest,

Thank you for taking time to review the Casa Grande. Perhaps you overlooked the terms and conditions when you accepted your reservation on Bookit? On all 3rd sites (including our own) we clearly show the fee, we have no reason to "hide it". Like many other hotels in the area we have a resort fee. Ours includes, wifi, beach towels, morning coffee, freshly baked cookies and complimentary in room phone calls.

I hope that clarifies the fees for you
Best,
Steven Annicharico, Assistant Manager

How do I say this nicely....do NOT stay here. We came for a girls weekend and it was a major disappointment.

Here just a few things we learned during our stay:
Website - The website claims to have all of these great amenities, but it took us showing up to find out that it certainly does not and many claims are just an out-right lie. There is NO spa, no nightly turndown service, no robes....and the list goes on and on.
Noise - Of course, South Beach is going to be loud (that is the best part!), but when there is a 24-hour Fashion Show across the street from you and manager doesn't even give you a heads up when you arrive -- it is just plain rude. As someone who lives in Manhattan and deals with noise very well, it was one of the more painful experiences. In fact, someone from a our group left and stayed somewhere else.
Resort Fee - Most hotels in South Beach have this, but they have it for a good reason. This hotel does not deserve to ask for this. The staff said this was for the coffee, cookies and fruit in the morning. Again, a lie. We never saw a piece of fruit and both mornings we had to ask for cookies. Don't think you are getting real milk either....oh that would be too much.
Rude Staff - They were rude and unprofessional and in fact made a rude remark to one of our friends. Also, they promised to call me for my cab to the airport and "forgot" which meant us trying to hail down a cab early in the morning and barely making my flight.

My advice -- pay a little bit more money and stay some place else in the same location. It is not worth it at all and you will be disappointed in your experience.

We stayed at the Casa Grande for the 2nd year in a row. They rooms are great, the staff is nice, some fruit and coffee for breakfast and right in the heart of all the action. This hotel is on Ocean Drive and does not have a restaurant/bar attached which makes sleeping a bit easier. Still would recommend ear plugs while staying anywhere in SOBE. There is no pool but we didn't want a pool we just wanted the beach the beautiful beach that is right across the street. The hotel provides towels and chairs for the beach if you want them. There is a room resort fee of $25 that is added to your credit card when you check out. This is at every hotel except at least this is worth it covers towels, chairs, fruit, coffee, cookies etc. The is a man right out front that will take your vehicle and park if for you for $25 a day. This is cheaper than the valey parking offered by the hotel. They give you a card with a ticket number so you can give to front desk to call for your call to be brought to you. You can get your car as many times as you want also. It does take about 15 minutes so give yourself some time to order the vehicle...Once again another great stay at Casa Grande we will be returning every year and will not hesitate to stay here and only here.

I booked the Casa Grand for the great location and low price. If you want to be in the midst of the action, this is your place. The rate was great for a suite with a separate bedroom and sofa bed in the living room. Admittedly the hotel is a bit run down, but the pleasant staff and location made up for it. Don’t stay here if you are expecting luxury, but the room was BIG with a kitchen and suited our needs fine.

We loved the hotel! We were there on a Saturday night (Feb 17 2013). From the vibe in and around the entrance / lobby to the suite, so enchanting! Love the aquarium, artwork and blue lighting, always a bowl of oranges in the lobby for guests, the smell of incense - Customer service was exceptional! I'd recommend this hotel to anyone staying on South Beach! Oh, and it is pet friendly!!!
