Miami - South Beach - 1 day stopover Being Karin's first US experience it was only fitting that a large set (my nice words for FAT) American woman decided she was going to give us attitude for trying to catch the shuttle bus to South Beach because we had a couple of big bags. Finally when this was resolved and she had 'chilled her grill', the bus …
... about a 15 minute warm up they announced the starting line up and had the pre game show where the lights go down and they bring out big flame throwers. They play 7 nation army by The White Stripes and blow flames out of the flame throwers and then they get everyone to crack the red glow sticks that were given out on the way in, as the whole stadium lights up with the red glow sticks and flames and the starting 5 is announced. Everyone goes crazy for Lebron and Wade. ...
Woke up about 8 with the girl above packing all her kit away, why people cant do this the night before I don't know... Got up about 9 and went and had some coffee and toast, got chatting to a couple of nice girls from Brighton, Elle and Kat. Both 21 and very hot! Anyway, more on them later. Had a fag outside the pool chatting to some French dude then had a shower and hit the beach. Oh, bought some flopflips on the way, I decided it was time. Weather ...
... again, because it was a 4 hour journey and I was worried that there would be no doctor or anything if something happened. It seems illogical now but at the time I can't think straight and get so stressed. Anyway I spent the entire coach journey breathing the way I was taught, and it wasn't the best journey, but I managed to stay calm (and I skyped my mum and dad who really helped). Our hotel in Miami is literally right next to the beach, and we can't wait to spend ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Beach Plaza Hotel Miami Beach
I booked a room at this hotel because the reviews for a hotel up the block were horrible! I am a frequent visitor to South Beach, and was looking for a hotel closer to downtown and the beach. The best deal I've had since the Roney Palace had an "under construction sale"!
I thought this hotel was great. The rooms are nice and clean and the service is wonderful.
You could do way Worse than the BPH!
Attention wives, girlfriends, random secret rendezvous women -- fear not the scary reviews of the BPH. As best I can tell, the negative observations of the hotel were unfounded.
While the room is not palatial, it is comfortable enough for a 3-4 night stay. The high ceiling made it seem fairly roomy, the decor was pleasant, the bed was firm, the air conditioning worked well, and the bathroom was reasonably modern. The only legitimate complaint is that the water temperature was a bit erratic. The staff was quite helpful and they do try hard. The location is very convenient to the beach, local dining/drinking establishments and shopping at Lincoln Rd Mall.
If you have modest expectations about your stay, you will no doubt walk away quite pleased.
My mother and I stayed at this hotel through a vacation package and were immediately disappointed! The pictures online are NOTHING compared to this hole! The sheets were filthy, there was a huge brown stain on the ceiling, the tile was moldy, carpet SUPER dirty (I walked around in my shoes), and the shower left me feeling dirtier than when I stepped in. WE could hear the maids in the next room every morning and the noise outside was HORRIBLY loud! Please DO NOT STAY HERE! I was im Miami looking at modeling agencies, and this place just made me feel ucky and dirty. It was the longest 3 nights ever.
Perfect Place to stay
Wow! What a great place. From the minute we walked in the door we were given great service! Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The hotel has been renovated so everything is really clean and beautiful. The hotel has a garden area for guests which is private and quiet. The location is also great. It's close enough to everything but far enough that you are not bothered by the noise. We would Definitely return to this hotel on our next trip to South Beach!
Not too bad
I stayed at this hotel in November, yes my room was pretty shabb BUT the price was pretty good. Also the hotel was undergoing a renovation while I was there, perhaps it will improve.
I have stayed at the Beach Plaza about 6 or 7 times. It is in the Heart of South Beach, a major plus. You can stay here for about $80 bucks a night in season, another major plus. That is where it ends. You do not want to bring your girlfriend or wife to this place because it is filthy and the front desk is not at all helpful or professional. If you are on a budget and with your guy buddies this is a great place to stay for cheap and not have to drive anywhere. You are a block from the beach and all that South Beach has to offer. I love the fact that you can get a $200. flight from Boston-Miami during Spring Break, and split a room with your pal for $40. each a night. The money you save you can spend on booze and food. Just remember do not bring your girlfriend or wife here, they will be miserable. So while the Hotel and staff are terrible, it does offer a really cheap price in season to stay in the heart of the South Beach action. I saw a person gave this place a five star rating. That has to be a mistake. Do not go here thinking this is even a 2 star, you will be sadly mistaken. That ranking is totally bogus. Remember, great location, cheap rates in season, filthy rooms and hotel, rude uninterested staff.
Hidden Gem of a Hotel!
Down in Miami Beach is this cool hotel - great prices compared to the neighboring resorts, but just as clean and comfortable. Very friendly staff, and right across the street from an excellent restaurant. This is a place I will return to!
Good location, but...
This hotel has a good location, but not much else
going for it. They could not find our resevrations
despite repeated advance calls and confirmations!
Finally got a room towards the back of the hotel.
Average to small room, but a terrible moldy or
musty smell from the closet. How they could let that
pass without fixing it is incomprehensible. Front
desk staff generally indifferent and unhelpful, though this varied a bit depending on who was there at the time.
Would not stay here again.
(Note: above comments based on a stay in Feb. 2001)
Nasty, stinking, dirty!
If you don't mind taking a shower in the hair and filth that
the previous occupants left and sleeping on sheets that have not been changed since the dawn of time, this is the hotel for you! The room was small, there was only one bed and a cot, the doors were paper thin and the staff (when they could be found) was no help at all. If I was able to give scores in the negative range I would!! My stay here was the longest two nights of my life.
