Best vacation spot in South Beach!
The Sherbrook is located in the best central location on Collins Ave. The massive room had wooden floors, full size appliances dining table/chairs, nice pictures on the wall, in all a very "homey" room.
Some of my friends stayed at the Riu Hotel and was impressed that the Sherbrooke room is much bigger, cleaner and had great amenities for the price!
Everything I needed was within a few blocks of the place. Dining, shopping, dancing, beach and beautiful people! If you don't feel like going out you can sit and relax on the porch of the hotel which I enjoyed.
I truly miss the Sherbrooke after spending 5 nights there and cannot wait to return next Columbus Day weekend or even much sooner!
Excellent value for such a location
Spent five nights there between May 13 and 18/04. Excellent value for such a close location to the beach. The apartment was very clean and everything worked. It was great having central air so you could adjust to what temperature you personally wanted. The windows are all new in the apartments and wind out nicely if you so desire to get outside air. Mitch the owner was more than welcoming when I arrived. Got to give him a lot of praise as he seems to be "jack of all trades" for the complex! Ocean drive only a short block away with all the restaurants and bars and of course the beach. A block in the other direction was Washington Ave. with lots of shopping and more. One of the best values I have seen in South Beach.
Excellent for What You'd Expect
We stayed at the Sherbrooke for the weekend and it was exactly what we were looking for: a clean, simple place in a perfect location. Our room was actually quite spacious, with a separate dining area and full kitchen. The location is perfect and even though we were there primarily for the nightlife, we still appreciated the fact that things are much quieter on Collins than on Ocean when it comes time to wind down the evening. The beach is convenient -- one block away.
Sure there's no decor to speak of, and the facilities are pretty basic, but it was clean (no trace of pests) and very affordable ($90/night). As a bonus, the owner, Mitch, got us in the backdoor at Mambo's, which is a popular nightclub next door. I would definitely stay at the Sherbrooke again.
Sherbrooke is awesome
Loved the Sherbrooke. My girlfriend and i just spent 5 days there, we would have stayed another 5 if we could. she's a little picky on where we stay sometimes so i was a little nervous. she loved it. only complaint was bed wasn't very comfortable, but no biggie. best location and value in south beach. felt like a little hideaway, no front desk to mess with, can come and go w/o having to see or talk to anyone. don't get all the noise and traffic of ocean drive but do get all the benefits of being so close. not swanky but everything you need for a beach vacation. who spends time in their room in south beach anyway?? plenty of space, fridge, microwave, and stove. compass market right across the street for anything you need plus deli sandwiches, beer, etc. internet cafe across the street if you need internet. primetime on corner has a great breakfast, relatively inexpensive. we'll be back to the sherbrooke. sherbrooke rocks.
Good budget-minded option
The Sherbrooke Hotel is the 5th hotel that I've used in South Beach.
The price through Orbitz was approximately $150 per night and I believe it was worth it. The building dates back to before WWII and it's age shows in places, but the rooms were clean with remodeled bathrooms(excellent water pressure in the shower!). The location was terrific as the 901 Collins address puts it in the middle of the Art Deco District and only a brief walk from many nice restaraunts on Ocean Drive. It is an apartment style facility with a kitchenette including refrigerator, range and microwave. While many of the hotels in South Beach suffer from noise issues, the Sherbrooke never presented a problem with its double-paned windows and serviceable AC. So if you're interested in a good location and decent but not posh digs, this is a good option.
The Sherbrook Hotel is the BEST value in South Beach!
This year was my 6th year going to South Beach.I have stayed at some hotels that were about $150 and other that were $250 a night. The Sherbrooke was closer to the hotels that I've paid $250 + for but for FAR less. This hotel was a great suprise.Very clean. Tons of room.
Stove, full size fridge, microwave, several ceiling fans, great lighting, lots of room. No reception area to deal with (which I like) but if you need to be catered to hand & foot, maybe this is not the place. If you want a great deal, lots of space, cool room- all at a great deal, then get a room here! You will NOT find a hotel better than this for this price!!!!!
Stayed here a week in February. Found clean and modest suite steps from Ocean Drive with the helpful owner manager inhouse. Great location.
Great price. Annie of Portland, Maine
Still Up In the Air
I'm still up in the air about Sherbrooke. The price we got was great ($79/nt) and the location was great, although you definitely can't see the ocean like all the pictures show when you're on their website. It was one block off Ocean Drive right by the main beach access. Very art deco/1950's, but the bathroom still had dirt in the corners from that era also. The bathroom was sooo small, no place to put anything (like grandma's house circa 1940). The tub was small and gross, still had some hairs on the outside of it. Window in shower/tub with no curtain, faced a building, and don't think anyone could see in, but not certain. There isn't a traditional lobby with a desk, Mitch (who was extremely pleasant) met us at the cab and helped w/ our luggage. It felt more like a boarding house than a hotel, but this is the first time to this area and maybe that's what the hotels are like around there. We're not used to uncarpeted floors/non-traditional hotels. Pros: location, good ceiling fans, coffee shop right across street, Mitch, washer/dryer avail, kitchenette, beds seemed clean, priceCons: bathroom, bathroom, bathroom; funky odors from wood burning to diesel smell in hallways, potential for noise from traffic and partiers, no comfortable chairs in room for reading - just fold up card table chairs, no brochures or info on where to go/what to do and I wouldn't know how to find person in charge if needed Would I stay again if I was down there? Maybe, now that I know what I'm bargaining for. I would explore all my options.
Truly South Beach's Best Kept Secret
Although I have visited South Beach on several occasions previously, I recently visited (August 2002) and can proclaim, definitively, that I experienced the best accommodation thus far! I discovered the Sherbrooke Hotel, located on Collins Ave., in the heart of everything that is South Beach!!
If you have had any experience with accommodations in South Beach, one quickly realizes that almost all hotels proclaim that properties are "first class." It can become a trite, and often inaccurate, description of properties once your eyes actually view it firsthand. However, the Sherbrooke Hotel is definitely one of those understated properties. First of all, the ALL SUITES hotel rooms are HUGE, complete with a sitting area at the entrance, fully equipped kitchen(even a full-sized refrigerator and microwave no less).
The bedroom area is large as well, with a ceiling fan and a host of cable channels available on the television. Further, one of the greatest highlights, is the fact that the suite has a dedicated central air unit with a personal thermostat, so that you can adjust the exact temperature to your preference. This is quite a PLUS in the South Beach area to be in total control of your room's temperature, coupled with a unit that can EASILY achieve the temperature you desire -- even in the heat of summer!!
Other atypical conveniences of The Sherbrooke Hotel is the INDIVIDUAL and DIRECT phone line that is in the room -- no operators or switchboards necessary. Your suite has its own phone number just as you would have in your own home. And, finally, yet another great point, is the security of the hotel. The doors of the hotel stay LOCKED AT ALL TIMES and your key to the front door allows access to the hotel. Further, to allow for visitors to your room, an intercom at the front entrance allows the person to call your room using the directory and keypad.
The suite was very clean and neat and the individualized service uncompromising. Mitch, property manager of The Sherbrooke, is quite attentive to any needs or concerns and he is only a phone call away if assistance is warranted by the guest. I have nothing but the highest regards for Mitch and his operation of The Sherbrooke. Undoubtedly, my next itinerary to South Beach will include accommodations at The Sherbrooke and yours should as well!! My sincere "thanks" to Mitch for making it a great stay!!

With all the wild stuff done we head off to Miami and seems strange to be back in the city! Much cleaner than imagined and very friendly - not what we had expected. A trip to see the South beach then checked in at the Whitelaw hotel - very Liberache! As we enjoyed our complimentary cocktails from 7-8pm we realised we were probable the oldest in the hotel and this was party ...
... 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. ...
... more non-US brand cars than before. Some impromptu research revealed that only 22 out of 100 passing cars were made by a traditional US company (Ford, Chrysler, GM). The Germans, Japanese and Koreans are winning the car sales war here. The big red bus duly arrived and we continued our journey on to Coconut Grove where the City of Miami municipal offices are housed in what was originally Pan Am's flying boat terminal in the 19-something's. ...
... hallway for 5 hours. We'll see.
I start down concourse D and find myself surrounded by stores and restaurant, typical airport stuff. Shopping is not a good idea since I can barely put another pen in my carryon and because I need to save all of my dinero for my actual vacation. Also I'm not that hungry - my well balanced in flight snack of crispers, carrots, a cheese string and tomato juice was surprisingly filling. I'm reminded of that ...
... and nurses for having to put up with me!
Day 36 – Wednesday 5th September
We had booked to swim with dolphins today at the Miami Seaquarium, so after a nice sleep to recover from yesterday's stress, that's what we did. It was a bit of a hassle getting there, because we had the wrong address, so we went from being really early to really late. Ahh well, we got there in the end. And it was amazing! First of all we had to put on ...
