Days Inn Miami Beach / Oceanside
Travel Blogs from Miami Beach
Another close call with the bus today! We thought we'd left plenty of time however on the bus to the bus, a lady decided to have an argument with the bus driver for about 10 minutes and because we'd got confused over the Walmart stop that we needed we ended up having 2 minutes to find the bus and the 'bus stop' was just in the middle of the car park! But it was fine we got ...
... how long it takes in a plane.....35 minutes. Sunday was a waste of time!!
Anyway as I stated at the start of the blog, we are now in Miami Beach and stopping on the seafront in an Art Deco hotel and in the morning we get on the ship, which means that there will be no more blogs, is that a huge sigh of relief I can hear you all giving, well no more blogs until after the 18th when we get back, so until then byeeeee
A quiet day. Car had flat battery so has to wait for the roadside assistance. **** car company Alamo (do not hire a car from them) had the nerve to charge me a call out fee of $62 to fix their broken car. I disputed but they had already charged my credit card and I have no say in it apparently. After getting car fixed drove straight to Miami ...

I haven't suddenly become a Diva. I don't suddenly think I am a raving beauty. However, I am rapidly discovering what confident women the world over have always known. Confidence is sexy and empowering. People will flock to those who are confident. They will want to be around you if you are radiating energy and happiness.

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Miami Beach / Oceanside
WORST STAY EVER!
Booked it for 1 week, stayed 1 night!
Please do NOT stay there! Itīs horrible, NOT clean at all, unfriendly staff, shabby, please go somewhere else, everything is better than better than THAT!!!
My friends and I went to Miami Beach for spring break 2004. It was great to have fun there and the beach was awesome. We stayed at this hotel and were dissappointed in the rooms. The lobby was very nice but the room wasn't. The bathroom was very dirty, with mold and cracks in the floor. The window was so dirty you could barely see outside. The walls are paper thin, we were talking and laughing and the mgmnt came up and asked us to quiet down even though we weren't that loud. They did have excellent housekeeping, because we had sand in our shoes and it was all on the floor, but after they came in it was all vaccuumed up. The pool was very nice but very small, the Ocean that was in front of the hotel was very nice. just a walk over the boardwalk to a beautiful sandy beach with perfectly blue waters. I would reccommend the room to someone on a budget wanting to stay ON the beach.
The place is sort of rundown, but for the price it is not bad, not musty smelling like alotof reviews I have read about Miami Beach hotels.We stayed for 4 nights in Feb 2004 and it was around $500 total.
Definitely not worth the price!
Yes, the lobby was nice,but the room was horrible. From the dirty, mildew-covered, cracked-floored bathroom to the moldy ceiling, dirty windows, very loud and annoying air conditioner, paper-thin walls, very slow valet (although it wasn't the valet's fault, since there was only one guy and a constant, huge line-up of cars), the 85-cent charge for local calls from the room (?!?!?!?!), to hearing the water running from the shower in the room above us. Free access to a fitness facility at an adjoining hotel was advertised, but when we asked about it, we were told that it was no longer available to Days Inn guests. Definitely not worth the $160/night that I paid!!!!!
I agree with both March 11th Visitors
The lobby is the only nice part in the building, which leads you to believe the rest of it will be ok. Wrong. The room was pretty scanky, particularly the bathroom. Our room had an adjoining door to the room next to us that was so paper thin, I could hear young, rapper wanna-bes & spring breakers arriving home late at night.
I wouldn't consider eating breakfast, lunch or dinner downstairs in the sunrise cafe either.
Shame on you Miami.
Rooms are very rundown and dirty...
I was extremely disappointed with the Days Inn Oceanside. Yes, the Lobby and Pool areas were nice and the room was spacious... but it was also old, rundown and dingy. The furniture were mismatched and bulking from water damage.We even had a problem with mold in our room and tried looking at 3 other rooms... but they were all equally unappealing.As a native, we love this strip of beach and tried saving monies by staying at the Days Inn, but it completely back-fired on us.If I were you, I would spend the extra cash and stay in one of the newer hotels and forgo the older hotels even if they have been remodeled.
This is my favorite stretch of beach, so logically I looked for the most reasonable place to stay. I made my reservations based on the previous good reviews... but was immediately disappointed when I walked into the room.
Lots of problems
My wife and I and our 3 month old only had two and a half days to enjoy Miami Beach. We arrived at our room and were instantly disappointed.
Old, fairly run-down, and felt kind of dirty. The room would have been adequate, but we had no hot water for most of our stay, no heat on our first night(very cool for Miami Beach), and the tv had some problems. I kind of hate to give such a bad rating because the lobby was nice, as was the pool and beach area, and the maid service was very consistent.
The hotel would be ok if you had hot water and everything else functioned properly, but for us it stunk.
had a fabulous time, the staff was accomadating warm and welcoming, beautiful hotel with a beautiful view of the beach, definitely a great place to stay when visiting miaimi!!
