Great staff, great location; disappointing resort

Posted 20-Oct-2017
I live in Miami and had family visiting that we’re staying at this hotel - so we booked a room to spend time with them in SOBE. In the spirit of keeping this review mostly positive, I’d like to start with the high points of the stay; the staff was helpful, engaging, and really incredible and the location of the hotel is prime. That said, that’s where the positivity stops. The Crescent calls itself a “resort” and in turn, charges a resort fee - as most hotels in SOBE do. Unfortunately, this hotel is the furthest from a resort; there are zero amenities; no pool, no restaurant, no bar, no room service, no gym, no on premises valet (third party valet is available), no vouchers for umbrellas or chairs on the beach. For your resort fee, I was told I received free WIFI, a towel if I chose to go to the beach, and a room safe. Really? Our room was a suite, but was very utilitarian and somewhat tired in its decor and finished. Loving restoring an Art Deco hotel would have been preferable to the 80s refurb that the rooms have undergone. And did I mention that check out time is 10am? Certainly not standard; most hotels in the area offer 11am or even 12pm checkout times. Having stayed at many hotels in South Beach, I really had expected more from this property. I won’t stay here again but I do want to thank the staff for being lovely and making the stay somewhat tolerable.

Great Ocean Dr. Hotel

Pros: The hospitality and roof top.
Location: Right next to the beach was a prime location and places to eat were very close.
I had a great experience at the Crescent Resort. When we first arrived to check-in, the hostess was very welcoming and helpful. I had other people checking in a day later and that process was very simple and easy. Even though housekeeping only comes every 4 days, they were great with bring us extra towels and coffee and sugars. The roof top part was a great addition.

Great location, nice place.

Pros: Large, well-appointed room, terrific location.
Cons: My only issues were that my room was far from the lobby and I couldn't get decent wifi service. Also, the a/c was extremely loud when it came on.
Location: The beach is right there. It's a 4 block walk to the pedestrian walk of shops/restaurants on Lincoln. Very good location.
I spent 4 nights here. The rooms are large and well appointed, with a separate bedroom off of the living/kitchen area. There's really everything you need to eat in and avoid the pricey (and ordinary) restaurant scene. The beach is directly across the street, and the area is busy, but not so much that the noise goes late into the night.

Great location and reasonable price.

Great location across from beach for reasonable price. We would have liked daily maid service- once every four days was provided. There was construction noise outside our room that started early every morning but hopefully that will not be a long term problem. The room was large, very comfortable bed, large shower and full size fridge. Wifi was unreliable. We would return to this property and would recommend it, but people should understand this is not a 5 star property - it doesn't have a pool or direct beach access.
