... full size' or whatever. We had prepaid the reservation back in May 2013. The guy we spoke to said they hadn't had Corvettes at MIA for over 9 months. This begs the question - how can the world's #1 rental car firm accept my reservation and payment (7 months in advance), for a particular model of car, under a program that guarantees the specific model you've ordered, yet be unable to deliver that car upon ...
... wrong day they fine you 200US$ and keep your car for 24hours. Extreme stuff. Finally after my hour and half taxi ride of no entiendo and no hablo espaniol I arrive at Vibes Hostel in New Quito. At the same time this Australian couple and New Zealand guy arrive from Colombia. So Andres (guy who works at the hostel) took us on a tour of the hostel. The hostel was fun. It had three lounge areas, one with a bar and pool table ...
... walked through the shops and checked out the amazing hotels hoping to see some celebrities which is quite common here. No Luck!
But one of my favourite things to do is to people watch on Ocean Drive. Today I saw a fat man in a bra and miniskirt and a guy with a pet lemar like KIng Julian from Madagascar. The weird and the wonderful but I have had the best time so far and I'm looking forward to another week here.
What an exciting, read confusing, trip that was! Between the Miami traffic and the road construction, it took us about an hour and a half to travel the twenty five miles. Sheesh! It was nothing like driving to East Helena, for sure. It was great to be re-united with them. It's been since last September since we were together.

... 2:00 pm. I hesitated and checked my phone. I had sent Istvan a text-message, but wasn't sure if he still had the same number that I had from the summer, so was unsure if he had received it. I had no idea when he would be able to see me, and had not heard from him. I knew I would see him eventually and just waited for him to contact me.
Meanwhile, across the lobby I could see the table set up with the wine packages. I went over to talk to the crew member ...

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.
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.
The Sherbrooke Hotel is the 5th hotel that I've used in South Beach.
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
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.
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!!
