The price was excellent. The location was phenomenal. This place is not for people who can't sleep through noise, but the atmosphere is classic south beach. The staff was awesome, we were in and out, they even gave us a room with a balcony and added bonus! This place is two blocks to the beach and a 10 minute walk...

The Clay Hotel has some charm, is well located and for SoBe decently priced. My room, however, badly needed a remodeling, the aircon was loud, and sleep quality is poor on Espanola Road, where people party til 4 am weekends

This hotel is situated on one of the most beautiful streets in Miami beach. It is a lively safe street in the evenings, and has blossoming trees and beautiful architecture. We stayed there twice during our holiday. The first time our room had twin beds, not modern but bright and clean with air con and a fridge. The tv broke...

My husband and I gave our daughters a Cruise for Christmas. As an added bonus, I thought I would book them at the Clay Hotel for an extra night in South Beach before they returned home.

Ideal location in Espanola way on Miami Beach, Ocean Drive is in 5 min walking distance. The room was a bit small but very clean and equipped with tv and fridge. No breakfast.
