Don't bother - false advertising!
Lobby and parking lot next door.
Other than the lobby, the rest of the place was very rundown. There was hair in the sink and the bathtub and the toilet reminded me of the girls bathroom in grade school. Couldn't see the ocean out of the windows because there was so much condensation on them. Not one single picture on the walls in our room - totally bare bones. Many boarded up, run down buildings located directly next to the Broadmoor. Would not stay here again and would not recommend to anyone else - unless you have low expectations. Pictures on the web site are totally misleading as to what is actually there. Breakfast is a joke.
Come for the location
The bed and towels were clean. It's right on the beach! Can't beat the location! Close walk to many restaurants and a Walgreens. Ocean view is outstanding.
The Breakfast is: make your own toast, pour milk into a pre-packaged cereal bowl. The motel is old and it shows. Dirty carpet, dirty walls, rusty door hinges, etc. The Wifi was down for 2 of 3 days while we were there. You will pay about $10/day for parking.
I liked the fact that the location was right on the beach.
Need of remodel
Location, bathroom minus the tub.
Standard rooms are decent sized but pretty small. There was more closet space than the room itself. The tub in the bathroom seemed like it wasn't clean. Also, the cleaning lady opened our door a hour earlier after I told the concierge that we wanted a late checkout. Felt as though we were being kicked out. Other than that I enjoyed my stay.
I liked the location and the affordability. It also included continental breakfast (although with limited options) which was a nice feature.
The bathroom looked like it needed some TLC. Also through the air duct you could hear people showering. There were even people smoking somewhere in the hall and/or rooms because I could smell the smoke in my room.
Hotel/AC Quality (noisy). I've got a package sent to it and had to go back after check out since I wasn't notified. Had to insist on looking up and the frontdesk kept me waiting a lot for it.
First day was disastrous, overall it was OK
Beachfront Easy access good location some of the staff was friendly staff's willingness to help with issues low price 'free' breakfast was ok but not many options had loaner beach towels and beach chairs which was a major plus
First day was disastrous because they did not have my reservation in their system, along with about 8 others before and after me. Went through Amoma, although they tried to help, I didn't they were not successful. took me more than 2 hours to finally get my room AFTER MIDNIGHT First room I was given was dirty, bathroom was smelly and tiny, ceiling had either mold or dust. It was not a clean facility, maybe a 2 star simply because of the location and the ability to upgrade to a beach front view with dirty windows. GM, who was on the phone was making things much more difficult for us to get a room. Very thin walls. You can hear everything on the rooms next door and the pools.
You can not beat the actual location
It was right across the street from the beach and I picked it because I had some business nearby.
The breakfast was continential and in a dark room with no chairs or tables. The beds were very very bad. This place was built in possibly 1930's and it still looks that way with only small changes. The street has many other places not repaired and boarded up.
Horrible first time experience
Customer Service experience was absolutely horrendous.
You get what you pay for
if your motivated you can be standing in the water in under a minute. The bar looked nice but I didn't use it. Staff did a good job.
What everyone says. A very dated property that has seen better days. But that why were there, your not spending $350 a night on south beach. That whole area of north beach is run down and needs a complete rehab.
Dirty, smelled, pool was filthy , breakfast consisted of rotten apples and bread to toast. Never again.
Across from the beach
When my wife and i arrived to check in, we were told we had to wait till 4pm....nowhere in my confirmation email after i booked was any mention of 4 pm check in. There were roaches, I killed 3 in on night. At night there was a group drug addicts that would hang out in front of the hotel, I personally witnessed 1 selling pot to a another person, who later just sat on the front steps of the hotel and smoked it. I asked for a non smoking room and the room itself smelled like an ashtray. The windows looked as though they we going to fall out. Bathroom needs an update. From the outside the hotel had that great art deco look, the interior shouldn't. The hotel should invest on some form of security, for the outside, seeing as the bar offers outside seating & take better care of the pool area.
The newly designed Broadmoor Hotel Miami Beach is the newest boutique style property located on Miami Beach. The historic, art deco style hotel, is located oceanfront and just a few miles the famous entertainment district in South Beach. The hotel resides on a quiet block in Miami Beach just minutes from the popular attractions that include Lincoln Road Shopping, Miami Convention Center, the iconic Versace Mansion, and the famous nightlife on Ocean Drive in South Beach. The hotel, formerly known as The Broadmoor By the Sea in the 1950s, just completed renovation enhancements and excited to be re-introduced to Miami Beach.
