“Disappointing Stay in Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Although the service people were outstanding, this newly renovated 2 level small boutique hotel didn't live up to our expectations.
The walls of our room allowed all the noise from the lobby to wake us up at 4 a.m. where people were coming in after a night on the town.
We could here people directly above us walking around on the wooden floors.
Children ran through the hallways at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning and were very disruptive until told to be quiet.
The room was very spartan and clean with a desk and flat screen TV. Not much room for clothes - very little hanging space. Night tables were low to the ground so from the very high bed you couldn't see the clock radio or reach for the phone comfortably. Not a piece of paper or pen in sight.
A/C unit was very noisy.
Bathroom door is an opaque glass sliding door which allows light into the room at night.
Worst of all were the pillows! They were very hard and uncomfortable. The sheets were comfortable and soft though.

Room Tip: 2nd floor probably isn't as noisy as the first floor.

hotel is wonderfull, service was perfect. We were leaving the city at late evening so we asked them to take use a bathroom after check out and they invited us to have a late check out without any extra charge.
I think people that say hotel needs a pool and it is overpriced is because they didn't check other hotel prices and hotel conditions in Miami. Also we went to enjoy the city and the beach, we didn't care about pool and other amenities, just a clean room with good service. If you want more pay super hotels at the beach for 300% more.

Room Tip: Ask for room in sencond floor.

We thought it was a joke when we entered the Hotel, wich had a Nice Lobby, And desinteressted staff would Tell is that there is no elevator. After ariving in the room we found no mirror accept that bathroom mirror!!!! Hello??? Why in the World is there Not Even One mirror in this whole Hotel Where you can See yourself in a Full view??? In a City like Miami Where you wanna go Out...( Not Even in the Halls or anywhere Else... Believe me we searched)
Breakfast is Server in a sort of 2 table Place... So no space for all the guests! People were standing around and gulping down their donuts.. We left to eat some place else, so i can say nothing about the food. The Rest of the Hotel is ok, we found the beds ok & the Design, but there is a Lot of room for improvement....

Thank you for your review of the Daddy O Hotel, we are sorry that your stay with us was not everything that you had hoped for. It’s through customer reviews that we evaluate our service and determine how we can better serve your needs as our guest. It’s our goal to provide our guests with positive and friendly service during their stay with us. We are currently addressing the issue of full length mirrors and we do expect to have installation completed this March. As for the parking, we realize how frustrating not finding a space must have been. We do offer valet assistance when guest cannot find a parking space, as we are aware of this inconvenience. Within the state of Florida any building that is less than four stories high are not required to have an elevator, we provide bellman assistance with luggage to help guest with the 16 steps to and from the second floor.
Regards,
Daddy O Hotel Staff

This hotel is old. No pool, cramped space for breakfast, two story building completely surrounded by parking spaces. The only space outside of your bedroom is the small lobby. The nice modern redesign of the bedrooms is dating and needs some repairs. You can ear almost everything from the other bedrooms thru the walls, ceiling and the closed communicating door to the next room. Floor carpeting stained. Calm residential neighborhood, but municipal garage facing the back (west side) of the hotel. Good 15 minutes walk to the beach, on a busy street. Not worth the price we paid.

Room Tip: A little less noise on the second floor (no ceiling above).

Thank you for your review of the Daddy O Hotel, we are sorry that your stay with us was not everything that you were hoping for. We appreciate your feedback about areas in which we could improve our services to you as a guest. It’s through reviews like yours that we as a company identify areas that need improvement. It’s our goal to provide our guests with positive and friendly service during their stay with us. To correct the seating issue, we have ordered a community table that fits ten people. Additionally, there is local beach access and we do partner with the local LA Fitness in order to provide in-door pool access to guests who request to swim in a pool. Cleanliness is extremely important to us as a business. Stained carpet was an oversight on our part and we assure you we follow a strict cleaning policy, including shampooing each room’s carpet frequently.
Regards,
Daddy O Hotel Team
