    Historical Traveler Reviews Starlite Hotel Miami Beach

    Basic - but bang for buck


    Exactly what you probably expect for $49/night directly on Miami Beach. Read the reviews for August 17 and particularly March 28 - hit the nail on the head. Clean and cosy enough - rooms are sparse and very out-dated, but secure enough and the location could not be better. For $49/night (coupon-book) plus $15/day valet parking it's well worth the deal.

    For a quick couple of nights to enjoy the amazing sights and scenes that South Beach has to offer, give it a go.

    You get what you pay for


    I went to South Beach for Spring Break last year, and it was defintly last minute. We chose a different hotel but changed last minute to the Starlite. I loved it. It was cheap, yet it gave you a nice room, freindly service. Their were a few problems... The full kicten we were told we had you could not use the stove, b/c they didnt want to turn the gas on. We didnt have a microwave, so we had to eat out every meal. But, the hotel is cheap enough. Id say that this hotel is perfect if you are just looking for a hotel you can party and have fun in... But, if your not looking for that, then choose another one 4 sure.

    Dont Expect Much


    Well if you were looking for shelter then you can't go wrong. If you were looking for plush ammenities dont stay here. Our room was supposed to have a small kitchnette & sitting area it turned out to be a fridge & 2 chairs. No safe in the room & no security lock either. Overall pretty clean, shower was clean but that's it. We saw some other rooms there & they looked a lot worse and smaller than ours. Yet when you go to South Beach you are really never in your room so it doesnt pay to spend $200 a night unless you need plush surroundings. I wouldnt stay there again but the location made up for a lot & the people at the hotel were nice. Good Luck...

    It was a dump


    You get what you pay for, which means no hairdryer or iron; thinned and ragged towels, horrible water pressure.

    I think prison cells are more decked out than this neglected hotel. Aside from the wonderful location, I can't think anything positive that would make someone decide to stay there.

    $49, all you need


    Ok, we plan a last minute trip to South Beach and decide to drive down from Atlanta. Talk about spontaneous! We stopped at the Florida welcome center and picked up some hotel coupon book. We called and they said they would honor the room for $49 a night! This place is in an absolutely aweome location. Right on ocean drive, you can walk straight across to the beach and it is admist all the hot clubs and restaurants.

    Oh, the room. Well its just that, like a dorm room. The beds aren't much better than cots and the bathroom/shower is pretty drab. Nothing on the walls, no view. But hey, this is south beach and you are they to party, nothing more, so take advantage and save your money for those expensive as hell beers!

    A pretty cute place


    Okay, I stayed at the Star Lite during the Music Conference wEEK 2004, here are the "good" parts of StarLite... the location is excellent, the rooms are pretty spacious & clean, the rates are reasonable, the staff is friendly and the hotel is laid back. Okay now for the "bad".....the elevator is either slow or out of order (but that's okay cuz there is only 4 floors), the doors have no peepholes (but have the chain peep lock) and there is nothing in your room but soap & air freshener (so bring your own stuff!!) Overall, I will deff stay at Star Lite again cuz its a cool hotel for somebody that just wants to chill and have fun. P.S. Friends stayed at Henry Hotel and that place is nasty, cheap, dirty and just a joke!! Starlite is 10 times better!!!

    Enjoyed my stay at the Starlite Hotel


    I couldn't pick a better hotel for the money I saved. It was in a great area (South Beach), the staff was very friendly, I had breakfast and lunch both was good. Didn't have a view in my room but who cares, when I step out the view was South Beach itself. The elevator could be replaced but I walked upstairs and it wasn't a problem. I would stay again when I return to Miami because I enjoyed that the rooms were clean and quiet. I would recommend this hotel if you want to enjoy South Beach and save money as well. The best birthday I had by far.

    Welfare hotel


    I can not believe that they would even rent out the room we were supposed to be in. You walked in and on the right side was a hole in the wall that was the closet and on the left side was a kitchen a sink and a very old rusty stove that did not work and a refrigerator that was as bad. Then you took 2 steps in the room which was 2 double beds that were slanted, you turn around and there was a dresser with a broken drawer and a bathroom that I was afraid to look at. There were pipes and wires running around the celing. We left and went to the Tudor Hotel which was great.

    Love Starlite Hotel and Miami Club Scene


    Starlite Hotel has a great location right on ocean drive. The food was great and the happy hour was very nice too. The waitresses are very nice and friendly. However, if you want a hotel in south beach you have to remember that there not going to be in the greatest shape, but this one was very clean and Air Conditioned so we had a great time and partied alot there. Remember if going out to the club scene there too look your best and expect to pay $11 for a drink. Great staff and location. I would say the only downfall is the elevator, it could be better looking and faster but hey it works and gets the job done. For the Budget traveler and one looking for a great location by the beach pick the StarLite. Email me back with any questions.



    Perfect for the price, clean and basic, in the middle of al the action.

    Utolsó tengerparti napunkat hol máshol kezdhetnénk, mint a tengerparton. Így hát, ha már a South Beach-en lakunk, reggeli után gyorsan ki is ugrunk a hotelünkkel szemközti partra, hogy megnézzük mit is esznek annyira ezen a 'Beach'-en. Leginkább csak homokot, szerintünk. Meg kell állapítanunk, hogy továbbra sem vagyunk odáig a kissé túlzsúfolt …

Persze nem a városka érdekel bennünket, amely csak azért 'city’, hogy a nevét meg lehessen különböztetni a világ legnagyobb mocsarától, az Everglades-től. Ami egyébként az …

    ... a few clouds in the sky.

    It was already after 3pm so we checked into our hotel - our room is very modern, spacious and has an extremely comfy king size bed.

    We went for a walk to stretch the legs. Firstly walking down to have a squiz at the beach and then to Lincoln street. Wandering down Lincoln there is lots of shops, restaurants and palm trees! There are SO many ...

    The big day is here! It's time to board!

    ... DON'T want to know...

    It all worked out because the company I reserved from gave me a good price and it was fun to see their Chrysler 300 stretch limos pull up to me first, one called "Black Knight"(Dark Knight would have been better... there's my Batman reference for the day) and the other one called "Ghost." The reaction was even better from the rest at the Hilton when they saw two limos pull up. Their surprise and joy was well worth ...

    ... area of any airport, anywhere. Low ceilings, bad fluorescent lighting, and completely closed off from the rest of the terminal. I’m now waiting at Gate H8 for my flight to begin boarding. Apparently a Caribbean Airlines flight to Kingston, Jamaica is severely delayed, and the passengers are not happy at all. There have been several screaming episodes directed at the gate agent. Security has now come on the scene...
