Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharlee Great Hotel
This hotel provided everything we wanted for our recent stay on Miami Beach. Good food in the dining room; try the house cab if you like a glass of wine with dinner; enjoy a great margarita at the Tiki Bar outside, at the rear of the hotel. We had a 7th floor room facing the ocean and it was a very pretty view. The room was neat and clean and quite large. The HBO reception was perfect, but the regular stations weren't nearly as clear, but we were gone all the time, so we only watched TV in the evenings. There's a wide, wooden boardwalk behind the hotel property that goes on and on up and down the beach that a lot of people use to run/walk, or just plain mosey along. The beach itself is beautiful. Bright sunshine until about 3 p.m., then there are shadows coming down from the hotels, which we liked so we could get out of the direct sun for a bit. The water was very clear and even in November there were a lot of people in the water. The hotel is on 40th Street. If you drive south down Collins Avenue, turn right on 16th Street, there's a municipal parking garage on the left in the beginning of that block. Park, then walk back onto Collins and go South to 15th Street and you'll see Jerrys Cafe on the corner - it's the home of the original Wolfies. We ate a dinner and a breakfast there for a change from the hotel and it was super good and very friendly staff. Try to go see Vizcaya and take the personally guided tour - beautiful. They also had great food in the Vizcaya cafe - try the chicken salad. Miami and Miami Beach are busy all the time with traffic and full of interstate highways, so a GPS will come in very handy for your trip.

Dennis at the front desk was very friendly and helpful to all my staff throughout our stay...Wilson and Johnny at the valet station were super, we had 8 cars with us and they were superstars at getting our cars to us at different times of the day and always with a smile

It was time for a get together with buddies. I am an IHG member. Chose Holiday Inn right at the beach front. Very convenient location. Everything is close by. The staff was very friendly.
The pool was cold though. They could upgrade their breakfast too.

Stayed for a 1 week vacation in November and had a great experience. All staff were very friendly expecially in food and beverage and our housekeeper! The location right on the beach was great, just a short walk down the street or board walk to south beach. good pool and pool bar. Very happy and have already reccomended to other going to Miami

I found the front desk staff (Dennis in particular) and Duty Manager (Manny) particularly cordial and helpful. The breakfast was very good and the staff very attentive. This is one of the best Holiday Inns I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in well over 100.

We stayed 7 nights and our stay was flawless.
Front dest promtly checked us in when we arrived, and the same for our departure.The bill was correct, asked us how was our stay, and wished us a great trip home.
Our room was nice and clean, the lady from housekeeping was polite and left the room everyday smelling fresh.
The breakfast buffet was very delicious, and presented very nicely. Breakfast staff always on their toes, to serve you your coffee, juice or what ever else you like.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay, and the service from the holiday inn staff,
We will be back!

This is an excellent Holiday Inn. Location on the beach is great. Staff is very nice and helpful. Room was clean and nicely furnished. I wanted to point out the help of Kimberly who helped us with our reservations because we had multiple reservations that needed to be connected. She was great.
I would definitely stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Nice location for beach goes but,
.. our room was OK for the price level, but very, very noise. We could hear every word of both of our neighbors all night long. Had a connecting door which did not isolate the noise from next door - sadly they had long discussions every night till 3 AM. Main door of room has about 1/2" space to the frame which also passes the noise of the hallway and the light during night time. No minibar / freezer. Nice safe.
Saw other rooms which had the sink in the middle of the room entrance next to the door (unacceptable) and others which had a wall just infront of the window. We luckily had a separate bathroom and a pool / beach view.
Pool OK. Bar is poor and like sitting in a hallway of a train station. There is no option to have a coffee or beer in the evening and sit in a comfortable space.
Beach infront of Hotel is nice and relaxed. Valet in the evening is not well organized, had to wait twice 5-10 minutes on the street to even enter driveway.
No flexibility on late check out, had to put my alarmclock to obtain a paid check out as it was not possible to confim this the evening (10 PM!) before.No acceptable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by teodosius A good experience
I really enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn, only issue that I see is that front desk personnel should try better to understand that they are dealing with people not machines or computers. Anyway they are good guys.

Staying at the Holiday Inn Miami Beach-Oceanfront was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. The hotel has been newly refurbished and updated. While the windows are smaller than newer hotels the ocean view was great and walking to the beach was a few steps from the pool area across the boardwalk. Great place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sputnik7 Brilliant location and lovely room, though room decor a bit tired.
We had a wonderful time at the Holiday Inn Miami Beach-Oceanfront. On arrival there was a very minor problem with the room which was resolved immediately and extremely satisfactorily by Lucy, who looked after us very well. The oceanfront location is brilliant (though it is a pity so many noisy little planes fly up the beach advertsing clubs!) and there is plenty of space to relax in the hotel and around the pool. The breakasts and evening meals were really good, and Shaun the concierge bent over backwards to search the TV to find an important English soccer match for us (which ManCity won!). He was incredibly helpful. Most of the time reception staff were excellent but once or twice staff on reception gave us that lovely American friendly smile but were actually very unhelpful!
Overall though, this was a great stay and we would definitely go again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Browneyes1127 Too Expensive for No Reason
There has been a long time since my family has seen a room with NO microwave or a small room refrigerator at least. The rooms are very small, with little bugs. The rooms are overly priced to have nothing in the room and for overlooking the beach. Not worth it, at all!
And taxicabs are overly priced.

Reception staff pleasant and friendly.
Pool/pool area and pool bar good and right on the beach.
Bar and restaurant served reasonable food and had a good range of drinks.
The building feels a bit tired and dated but this did not really impact my stay.

Once again, my wife and I stole a couple of days after dropping off our son at the "U". Everyone in the hotel is friendly, courteous, and helpful.
My wife walked into the hotel as I was attending our car and baggage, and in seconds Frances was greeting her with warmth, a smile and open arms...it's nice to be remembered.
Kudos to all...see you soon, I hope.

Apart from getting the room on time of our choice, everything was nice and warm including the beach water.
Been in Boston for last 12 years, amazed at the water temp being warm in the ocean.
Even though we paid extra (almost double price) for the Ocean front room, had to stay additional 40 minutes for the room to be ready. Could have used the reservation details to have the room ready when the guests arrive !!!!
Also, it would be nice to know about how to get the full oceanfront view rooms for the next trip..

It was one of my niece's 21st surprise bday getaway weekend 8/30-9/1 and everything was great. My girls & I were comfortable and especially happy about the pool & location. Even though it was a short visit and we didn't ask for much the Staff seemed cheerful and always acknowledged us. One minor thing, some of the bathroom fixtures can use a little attention.

Upon check-in I was given a coupon for 500 points if I ate dinner in the restaurant.I did eat dinner in the bar(It's the same menu)but not in the rest. When I checked out the desk clerk REFUSED to give me the points he could see the food was purchased on my folio.The food was WAY overpriced! The breakfast buffet was nice just too expensive! The one morning rather than pay for buffet I ordered an omelet off of the menu,in place of potatoes I requested fruit,I was charged an additional $6.00 for a CUP of fruit! It would have been cheaper to get the buffet! Breakfast should never cost $20.00/person! My stay was for 5 nights on the second nday one of the two elevators broke,it wasn't fixed for the remainder of my stay!There was always a 5 minute wait to get on the elevator. Overall the value/$ for staying at this property was POOR!!!

The only negative thing was that the pool is not open longer in the evening. Otherwise, the staff, the room and the food were very good. The location as well.
Will come again,
