Leaving Tallahassee after breakfast, we headed for Jacksonville. About a 2.5 hour drive, our plan was to hit the coastal highway and work our way down to Miami. Brad assumed the usual position for the drive, and before he knew it, we were in Daytona Beach, south of Jacksonville.
Stopping across the road from a Golf Car dealer, we decided to have a wander through the lot.
Heading South a short while ...
... to the hotel to check in. The first room they gave us was unacceptable. Small, damp, smelled bad. And the building was under HEAVY construction due to renovations. David was not happy. So we went in search of other options. We looked at a few other places then went back to The Clay. They showed us another room. A 2 room suite. Much better! Diner time! The hotel is on Espanola Way which is a pedestrian street lined with bars & restaurants. We had a ...
... my lighter and the one I had here didn't work, typical! ha. Kev's getting ready for Glasto which I just know he cant wait for... I don't think there's ever much rain or mud at Glasto is there?
After this I proceeded to drink through my beers and think in amazement about the call I had with Jane. I had a chat with Elle and Kat and there going to come on a road trip with me tomorrow to Key West, oh, I've rented a Ford Mustang also!!! Feel ...
... only thing open at that time of the morning was a place that sold pretzels and hot dogs cooked in pretzel dough (similar to Puka Dogs from Hawaii). I had a pretzel and Jay had a dog - quite good, even at 6:30 in the morning.
As we taxied for take-off, we looked to see if there were any souls at Sunset Beach, manning the fence, to get blasted by our jet. We could see two. No one was at the Beach Bar (no surprise, there!).
... there was a little photo session with a baby alligator and a quick walk around the park to see the rest of the crocodilians. Instead, with our departure time rapidly approaching, we headed for the little cafe and dined on swamp fries and a corn dog, both of which were far too small for the price. Kelsey played it smart and ate some trail mix she’d brought and an apple.
Back at the hostel, the three of us were all craving something ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mimosa Hotel Miami Beach
I was looking for a last minute escape to some warm weather without having to spend alot of money. After reading some of the reviews I was a little worried about the Mimosa Hotel.
The Mimosa was clean and the people were nice. The Mimosa was a very nice beachfront hotel.
I purchased a beach chair for $10 bucks down the street and enjoyed some of the local bars and restaurants and took advantage of the bus which easily took us to Bal Harbour and to Lincoln Rd. and South Beach.
I would recomend this hotel and will return.
Had the amenities of a Best Western or Travelodge, but more expensive. We were quite disappointed.
My Girlfriend recently attended a conference in Miami Beach and I tagged along for a little vacation. After reading your website I was a little concerned about her choice but after staying there a week I wanted to let people know about our stay
OK for 1 night only
The rooms are nice decorated and the beds are good but the location is really ---- with a paid parking across the busy collins avenue. The rooms are not soundproof, you really hear everything your neighbours do. The pool is not heated and small and the beach is the worst in Miami. The hotel is located between 2 construction sites. The Gym is located a block away, but the personnel is in my opinion outstanding and helpfull, especially if you consider all the problems and complaints from guests they have to deal with. Its rather funny to drink a coffee in the lobby and hear really every guest complain to the receptionists. For sure we don't come back and the advertisment is misleading.
If you like to live in garbage, you'll just love this place!!! Our first night there, we had to call to have the linen changed - dirty sheets. The following morning, we (my husband and I) had to share bath towels - one had old blood stains on it. When we reported it they were not apologetic or accomodating. Anyone whose mopped their floor knows that you have to use clean water or the floor will be dirty and sticky. The floors were mopped everyday with dirty water and you could see the footprints of the supposed cleaning crew. You are unable to regulate the temperature in your room, there is NO spa in the facility, or gym unless you consider one treadmill, one stationary bike with a curtain serving as a wall separating it from a pool table on the opposite side of the room a gym. Oh, the beach, it is about 7-10 feet of rocky sand backed up to the back of the hotel- no place to lay back and relax. THIS PLACE WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!! Don't think you will iron your clothes either - no iron or ironing board in the room. The fridge is a wine cooler - it chills. The t.v/dvd player sits inside a makeship wall unit and will give you whiplash trying to watch it (you can't adjust or turn the t.v.). The best part of all - the walls are paper-thin where you can hear everything your neighbor says or does. WHERE'S THE PRIVACY????
My husband and I along with our 2 kids (aged 5 & 10) stayed at the Mimosa for 1 night as a post cruise vacation. Although we were there for only 1 day I have to say I did not notice any of the musty smells anyone else mentioned.
I stayed at the Mimosa hotel for a weekend recently. Firstly there is no parking I had to park across the street and walk through a busy intersection in order to check in luggage in hand. The first room they placed me in smelled of sewage due to a plumbing problem, when I called the front desk and complained a maintanence worker showed up with a plunger and air freshener. When I stated I wanted a different room the staff looked at me like I was nuts.
For the price tag of $125:
Very nice stay - friendly staff
We recenlty stayed at the Mimosa and we had a great experience. This building has been newly renovated and they did a great job. Rooms have a modern flair and are very comfortable. The staff was also very friendly.
