Nassau Suite Hotel
Travel Blogs from Miami Beach
Today we arrived back in Miami and spent most of the morning disembarking the ship and getting to our hotel in South Beach. We weren't flying home until the next day, so we had the day to explore.
We had decided we were in no rush to leave the ship, so we actually waited to pack until the morning. We were about ready to leave the ship by …
... br> In the meantime, we went walking down Miami Beach. We had thought about hanging out at our hotel pool for a while, but by the time we were ready to leave it was only a half hour until we needed to check out. So we just checked out and left our bags at the hotel. Our hotel was at the very north end of the beach, so we headed south on our walk. I was glad I remembered my sunglasses this time because it was very bright. Unfortunately, I had forgotten what humidity feels like. ...
... amphitheatre, so more like a stage with a roof part, and lots of people had brought picnics and blankets and sat on the grass behind the seating area. We also experienced “tailgating” for the first time, where people have picnics and BBQs out of the back of their trucks in the car parks around the venue. A very American tradition!
Saturday was fairly uneventful. We had to return the car, and it turned out that the rental place was quite ...
Groggy eyed arrival but glad for the english native tongue. Managed to kill some time with the department of homeland security and then we were on the bus to south beach. Slightly cooler than Argentina but it soon warmed up as the sun rose. Ocean Reef Suites in south beach was to be our home for the night and from Collins avenue we only needed to cross the road and we were on the sandy beach. We stocked up at primo cafe, pleased to be back in the land of ...
... a real American breakfast, followed by a visit to the first beach of the holiday! We will pick the RV up as soon as we can and make a start on our adventure. We've taken some photos already but are struggling to upload from iPad. Hopefully amend this soon!
More posts from others ( with much more info about what we've been up to) will no doubt soon follow!!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Nassau Suite Hotel Miami Beach
Clean and Affordable
We have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Nassau Suites. This hotel is great if you are looking for something affordable and clean in South Beach. The location of the hotel was good. If you are looking to stay in the middle of all of the action stay near 8th or 9th street. This hotel is between 13th and 14th street but close to everything, since you can take a cab for cheap. Overall the hotel was clean. There were 5 girls in the studio suite which was just enough space. Two double beds and a pull out sofa with full kitchen and two closets. The hotel even provided beach chairs and towels for free. We would definitely choose this hotel again.
It could have been worse!
I went in Oct 2002. It was decent. Let's put it this way, if you want luxury go to the Hilton or Marriot, I was not looking for that. I was on a budget and there were many of us that justed wanted to party and needed a place to sleep and hold my suitcase, and shower. I was not there to watch tv or cook myself breakfast. I am going again this May to SOuth Beach and might book a room again.
Skeptical at first, but had a lovely time
There were four of us in the one-bedroom suite in early December '04. The space was actually perfect for us despite the fuzzy picture on the web, and it did turn out to be nicer than expected. I would stay here again. We were in room #1, which was adjacent to the front desk and we barely heard a peek from the lobby traffic.
Take a chance! Remember, Miami Beach is a party scene so if you want to relax and get pampered, stay elsewhere.
Good value, good location
Went in a group of 4 friends on a budget and were overall pleased with the amount of space (kitchen!). Big closet, clean room, kitchen, and bathroom. Note that kitchen isn't well equipped for cooking. Fridge not working when we first got there but they sent someone first thing next morning and it was fixed.
Highly recommend for price range
At first I was hesitant about booking rooms at this hotel but the price is unbeatable. I book quite a few rooms at various hotels in various cities and am very familiar with South Beach. This hotel is not a 5star hotel but is way better than what you can expect from an average 3star hotel in South Beach. There are 3star hotels and then there are 3star South Beach hotels. Which to explain would be a 2star anywhere else. The Nassau Suite studio rooms are amazing, they have big walk in closets, full kitchens, nice bathroom, bed and a separate sitting area. All this with nice hardwood floors. I will definitely return and recommend the hotel to others. The hotel also offers high speed internet connection. There is no pool but when you're a block away from the ocean it's not necessary.
I stayed at the Nassau Suites hotel for a weekend in March. I must admit that the actual room was nice, quite large and relatively clean. However, the management and staff are completely incompetent! Various unexplained charges were placed on my credit card and when asked to explain the charges, vague and very inconsistent answers were given. Moreover, these were not small charges...together they were for over $1000. The management acted as if the charges were a figment of my imagination and after speaking with my bank to confirm and remove said charges, were completely unapologetic and very rude!!! Overall, the size of the room was not worth the headache. I would never stay there again and if you don't want your money inexplicably taken, you shouldn't either.
Great price for what you get in return
I am from Florida, and am very familiar with South Beach. This hotel is great because it is economical while being close to all the sites you came here to see. The beach and Ocean Ave. is a block away; beautiful Lincoln Road is 4 blocks, Espanola Way is 2 blocks, and the hotel in ON Collins, which offers the best shopping, clubs, etc. around. My room was very nice - kitchen, mini-living area - basically, it was a studio.
Bottom line - keep your money to spend on shopping, eating, etc. - for the price, you can't beat this hotel.
if a decent place to sleep and good value are your primary objectives this is the place for you. We do not use hotel accomodations.. all we want is a clean place to sleep, a good bed and close to the place we came to see.. then this is for you. Stay away from the back of the building as there is a lot of noisy activity... typical south beach stuff going on at all hours of the nite. The staff is front staff is friendly and knowledgeble... the rooms are adequate... large... nothing fancy, right in the middle of everything happening in South Beach.. one of the best things to do in SB is to rent a bike to ride the beach and get around town.. and the second best thing is people watching at nite.
Great Value for Huge Accommodations
I enjoyed my stay here. The one-bedroom suites are like small apartments. Good value for the price. Only an idiot would expect five star quality for the price. Daily parking with in/out privileges is next to the building. The beach is one block away. No pool or bar on site, so not for young party types.
I'd avoid the Nassua Suites Hotel. We booked a suite (1BR plus LR and Kitchen). We let them know we'd have 3 people in the suite for part of the time.We go to our room, it was underfurnished and rather cheap looking. The whole place felt like it was about to go bankrupt. So, we try out the sofa bed in the LR. It completely collapsed when my friend sat on it.An hour later we had a new (and somewhat nicer room). The sofa-bed was tolerable (only a little broken this time!).In total we had three different rooms. We had to move again later in the week due to major electrical problems in the building. They were not pleasant about this and did not offer to help us move at all. Since the new Living Room was missing all it's lamps, we carried them from the old room.In addition to the room problems, the desk help (especially in the evening was amazingly rude...we were even lied to). The morning person was actually quite nice, though the breakfast (included) was pathetic.In the end we were overcharged by $15. We decided to cut our losses and just get out of there. Truly a dissapointing experience.
