Stayed 2 nights. Won't go back. All in we paid $425/night. The room was tiny and lacked natural light, making it a little depressing. The bathroom was a small as what you'd find in a low-end cruise ship cabin. I have stayed in Motel 6s with a much larger and much nicer room. I would have hated to see what the rooms looked like before they were refurbished. We also spent a night at the Faena which was less than 2x the price of the Surfcomber but the room at the Faena was 3x the size of (and 4x nicer than) the Surfcomber's. The Faena's resort fee was a little less than the Surfcomber's but included 2 beach chairs and an umbrella whereas the Surfcomber hit us with $22/day for an umbrella. The beach was nice but they blocked most of the sea views from the regular beach chairs with $150/day clam shell shelters. To our middle-aged ears, the music at the table area behind the pool was deafening. Fitness room was small but adequate. On the positive side, the room and common areas were clean, the staff was pleasant, the beach was lovely, and the location was good. It was nice being right on the beach.

Thank you so much for your honesty and transparency, we truly appreciate your feedback. We are a smaller art-deco boutique hotel so our rooms aren't the most spacious. We've noted your review to the respective departments and we can assure you that management will be noting this feedback for the future. Despite the hiccups throughout your stay, we hope that you trust to join us back at the Surfcomber again soon!

One valet. One bellman. They seemed overwhelmed. Was there for one nite. Told vaguely I could park on the street or somewhere in paid parking. I think they left the rental car just parked in front of the hotel all nite and charged for valet services. No coffee served until 8am in lobby. No inroom Coffee. Unless of course you ordered roomservice, I guess. They told me at 6am they had coffee makers and would send one up. It arrived about 9am as we were leaving for the airport. We had already went out and got coffee and breakfast. Two weeks prior we stayed in another South Beach Hotel. The difference in ammenities, services, staffing assistance etc was a world apart. This is a nice property but they need to fine tune some things.

Nice beachfront hotel, quick walk to the beach. Rooms were small, but clean. Some staff were more friendly than others.

The room was close to the outside so we were able to hear everything going on around us, however, it was great to hear the sounds of Miami. We thoroughly enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the fact that the resort fee included towels, chairs, and sunscreen. The staff was helpful and answered any questions we had. The room was clean and housekeeping came by multiple times a day to replace towels and pick up any trash. Overall it was a beautiful property with great amenities and I would definitely stay there again.

The resort needs some TLC! It's not nearly as beautiful as it looks online. The room I was checked into dint have curtains or working blinds. The room was smaller than it looked online (or maybe it was just the room I was checked into). The television was small, and guest services was not very helpful. I asked to have a phone charger brought to my room (as indicated on the card in the rest room) however; i was told i had to leave my phone at the front desk to be charged. The restaurant is average, but the staff was extremely nice and friendly. I had breakfast there every morning. I took a walk outside by the pool and beach, and I believe the surrounding area was under construction. It was not a terrible experience, but I would explore another option on South Beach.

Loved the staff. Very friendly. Wine at check in was a nice touch. Pool and beach are awesome. Close walking to great restaurants and shopping. Only negative was the shower pressure was so low i couldn't get the shampoo out of my hair. Drinks are pricey but so is all of South Beach. The amenities made up for that.

The property is a very well maintained and pretty facility. My issue was my family had a flight cancellation so we didn’t make it there on our first paid day at the hotel. We called to tell them that and we’re told we would get our room that we had paid for right when we arrived the next morning. When we got there at 9am we were told we werent going to be able to check in until 4pm even though we had paid for the previous day but were unable to make because our flight was cancelled. Very disappointed in how we’re able to get into a room we had paid for after already missing out on an entire day of our vacation due to flight cancellation.
