    Historical Traveler Reviews Clevelander Hotel Miami Beach

    Big plus but careful on the larger negative!


    When we arrived it was difficult getting checked in at 12:45am due to the party atmosphere. There were more people in line for cigarettes than anything else. The elevator stops running at 9:00pm due to security. (Hint #1) After checking in finally after numerous times of running my credit card and charging $100.00 too much, we were finally sent on our way when we noticed a security guard approaching down the stairs in the hallway and securing it. It was 1:00am by now and the elevator which is normally closed at this time, but wasn't let us off on the 4th floor.(Hint #2) The big plus came after spending the day on the beach and coming back their was always plenty of food and TV's with everygame on lobby/sports bar. It was great for a sports freak like myself. Sunday and it rained so going into the lobby on football Sunday was great for wife too. She loved that!!!! The largest negative came when packing to leave Sunday night, my wife noticed that her leather jacket had been stolen which had been on a hanger in the closed closet under my jacket that I had brought. The biggest hint of all was when I signed a waiver that the hotel would not be responsible for stolen items at check-in during the party. WATCH YOUR LUGGAGE AND WHO CLEANS YOUR ROOM!!!

    Halloween In Clevelander - GREAT TIME


    Rated ***** Excellent for it's location, friendly people, fun things to do, nightlife and a great place to spend a few days.

    We are business owners, wife 56 yrs and I am 62. We can afford to stay in about any hotel. My wife found this location on the internet - we had no prior knowledger of the Clevelander.

    All the employees in the hotel, resurant and bars on the premises are great. They have hired all nice people that are easy to know and fun to be with.

    The rooms are fine and clean. A great place to clean up and sleep.

    Do you want to rest in a quiet, stuffy 5 star hotel? Go someplace else!

    You want to live in a friendly fun environment - try the Clevelander. I had a great time and will go back.


    Never stay here just party


    I will never stay here again. We were supposed to stay for 3 nights-left in 2. Elevator was not working, room service was not working, & people were not working. We had to walk up 4 flights of stairs with our luggage. Could not enjoy ourselves 1 bit-only time was when not inside hotel. Pool area was great, but hotel sucks. The windows don't open, therefore you could not get any fresh air. The hallways smell like piss and were very dirty. This place definetly needs some renovations.

    I felt like a Star !


    Pat and I (Gabriella) had a good dinner at The Clevelander; lots of Corona's, and lots of laughs with a few of the waiters. We had the perfect seat on the terrace, by Ocean Drive. The "only" thing that dissappointed me, was where the washrooms were located... in the back, by the pool, outside, with NO doors to enter the place. I kind of felt I wasn't private in there. The rest, pretty much OK. We slept at the Tudor Hotel, one block away from The Clevelander. (Which was great!) We think of coming back to South Beach in July 2004. I hope to see our picture posted at the restaurant. Ciao from me, Gabriella, and Pat.

    Clevelander . . . not for anyone over the age of 24


    I stayed at the Clevelander in July 2002 with my boyfriend, we're just under 30 years old. The rooms were ok, the pool was un-usable (and gross), the bathroom seemed relatively clean. It's not for anyone above the age of 24. It's loud and obnoxious (There was a wet t-shirt contest or something the day we got there).

    Absolutely Horrible


    This place was terrible. The rooms were disgusting and so was the service. The room and the bathroom were so tiny and the tub didn't even work. The decor made me want to puke, it was like a place you would take a dirty hooker for a few hours. The only good thing about this place is the crowd it attracts at night and that isn't worth the stay!!!! Don't go...unless you're a dirty hooker!

    Fabulous Time


    We stayed in the ocean front room and it was amazing. Had a little kitchen, room was spacious and clean, huge shower/tub. Towels? By the weeks end, with only 2 ppl in the room we were getting more towels then we could possibly use. Yes, it's the main party zone, which we took as a HUGE plus, it's "The Place" to party. If you're worried about sleep, just go up a floor or two higher. Had the best 4 days ever.

    Don't try to sleep!!


    This place is a non-stop party!! If you want action-this is a place to find it. It is LOUD and WILD, and a whole lot of fun. Doesn't matter what night or season. You don't stay here looking to relax with your family....

    The Clevelander is off the hook......


    The Clevelander Hotel was an absolute blast. The staff members were hot, awesome, and very helpful. The doormen were so friendly and assisted us on where to go and what nights would be the best night and it made our stay that much better. The place is always crowded, with chill people just looking to have a great time. The food is great, they have a great variety, and so is the music. The rooms are fine, it's just a place to sleep and shower. If you're looking for a great place to stay in the heart of South Beach with non stop fun and action, go to the Clevelander, you won't regret it.

    The Party That Never Ends


    My first thought of the clevelander hotel is, why the hell arn't we staying here!!! No matter where you are on the strip, the clevelander sucks you in to it's party atmosphere. The pool is cold & the women are hot and music is just what you need to put them all together. If you miss the clevelander when your in South Beach, then you'll just never know how much fun one can have on Spring Break!!! I know were I'm staying in March 2002 I'll see you there!!!!! Zoots

    ... of an aeroplane toilet. I got a haircut and we finally posted some presents home. The highlight of the week was Friday night when we parked at an Italian restaurant on an outside table for Halloween. So, I imagined kids dressed up and the occasional under 30s dressed up on the way to the pub or club for the evening. And all of this was here. But, what was quite different to back home, and as far as I’m aware everywhere else in the world, everybody dresses ...

Feeling a bit disappointed having been caught in another tourist trap, it seemed as if the wildlife that should have been enjoying this lush habitat had probably moved on to an area that wasn't bothered by a noisy boat full of tourists every five minutes. We were then ushered into a viewing pen where we had ...

    Anyway. I digress – from one tramp to the next – I had to transfer at some all American, American mall which wasn’t actually open yet, but full of your standard mall rats, one of which was having some schcitzo rant about BELONGINGS EVERYWHERE!!! Presumedly referring to all the items falling out of various dry sacks, plastic bags and broken zips of mine ( I told you I was becoming homeless) I gathered all my stuff, tried to ...

    2 days was definitely enough for Miami. Day 1. Following our breakfast of 2 pieces of white toast with a coffee and completely ignorant waitress, Alex and I decided to explore on foot. We went to the main Art Deco district on 'Lincoln Road' to try and capture some great photos. It seemed that neither of us have a natural eye or talent for photography, so instead we stopped for coffee. We chose Starbucks over Paul's endeavouring to embrace ...

    about hospitality! The first night staying in my new "home" was interesting to say the least. The house holds 13 people, one girls dorm and 3 for the guys. Not that I've ever lived in a frat house, but I could imagine it's something like this, adding in the cultural differences (which always prove for a good laugh). ...
