Quaint, friendly staff. We chose the Rip Tide because we wanted the charm of the classic motel/hotels of years ago & it fit our wants/needs Definitely not their fault, but Mother Nature put a "damper" on our stay!! We made the best of it but could only imagine that nicer weather would've only made the charm & experience that much better!
Towards the end of the board walk Close to several eating places Outside music / bar on property 2 free hrs. bicycle rental Staff very nice and helpful Free WiFi You can only check in until 9 and then office closes Was not given Wi-Fi password and it wasn't in the room so I couldn't work my first night (apology given, and accepted)
on the beach bar scene
Location and cleanliness and the fact that I could cook and not have to go out and eat. The price.
Location and room They were not there to check us in- we had to wait an hour in the heat outside. The suite had window unit that was off, therefore the suite was extremely hot. It did not cool down. Florida was in the 90s. We slept hot. Expensive to receive this service.
Great location & solid WiFi! (Hotel Employee) & staff were very nice & attentive. Even threw party for guests during local parade. Hotel 1 block from beach & boardwalk with restaurants & bars in short walking distance. Washer & Everything was at the very least acceptable.
Staff was nice Too many spiders. Not worthy.
Felt unsafe, run down
The place is not worth the price. The room I stayed in was more than simple, it seemed dirty, although the room was clean. There is a very noisy bar across the street that was still noisy when I left for the airport at 4:30am. All night there where people walking through the courtyard that seemed to be drunk. The office staff was friendly and helpful but I honestly did not feel safe.
The distance frok the airport Very cheap room tiny bathroom very low quality for the $111 A night
Clean rooms, easy to get to/from airport, parking available. Clean, but in a crappy part of town. The room looked like it has not been updated since the 50s. No restaurants nearby other than some really shady dives.
This place is a hidden little gem among larger hotels. .its only one block from the beach and small places to eat...has the 50s nostalgia feel to it..stayed here overnight before a cruise and will definitely stay here again....place is spotless. ..doesnt have all the bells and whistles of larger hotels but who cares.....
I came late since I did the reservation 20 min before.. the staff member were really friendly and nice. Especially the day I checked out. I also loved the bed, it was so confortable
Nothing Sevice was horrible. Waited 1 1/2 hour for some one to come to the front desk. No one ever showed up. Had to go somewhere else. They refused to refund your money. Parking is a nightmare. You have to pay for parking in a lot not owned by hotel, or someone will put a boot on your car. Last option park on the street The phone number listed on the email is wrong. It goes to a fax. So no one answered. Beware cross all t's and dot all i's before you give any money or you just might end up S.O.L. like me in this situation
I don't agree with all the negative reviews. No, this motel isn't the Ritz-Carlton, but for $58 a night it isn't bad. The room is comfortable, the art on the walls is decent, and it has free wifi. If you're a family traveling on a budget and don't mind staying across the street from an airport, go ahead. The A/C wasn't easy to control.
The room was ok. Ok bed. Wifi worked good. No safety locks on the doors, no door bolts, and outside hallways. the tub drain was clogged. 3 inches of water in the tub when showrring.
The hotel was very dirty, and felt unsafe. My new wife and I slept in the car. We didn't want to sleep on the cigarette burned, feces stained sheets, nor stay in the prostitute infested hotel. I just gave them back my key. They would not give us a refund. DO NOT STAY HERE! There is a Days Inn right around the corner.
Absolutely nothing Room's were dirty and small. Bed frame was broken and could of caused injury. Left twenty minutes after check in.
Location was close to work? When arriving, there was a crackhead walking around the parkhead trying to sell blowjobs. This wasn't just someone randomly walking by, she was staying two rooms down from mine. Second, management raised the price from registration. Third, they tried telling me that the credit card machine was not working because they are clearly trying to rent rooms cash only so they can do things under the table. Fourth, I was woken up at 7:00 am to a housekeeper that opened my door and started yelling something in Spanish. This is NOT AN EXECUTIVE MOTEL. This is a crack motel. Not to mention that the walls were dirty, the sheets had stains, and the hot water did not work in the morning or at night. They advertised a Queen sized bed in the reservation: I was given a double and told for an extra fee I could get a Queen sized bed. Do not stay at this filthy place.
0 % was the most terrible night for my family Nasty place, inside & outside
Cheap. Good staff - I had booked 3 nights, I had been there for like 30 minutes when I realized "ok, yeah - I can't stay here" It had a TV Its right off a major street, lots of street noise even late at night. The closed door did nothing to help. The wifi was terrible - basically unusable. The mattress still had plastic wrapping on it. So, I guess it was great that it was new? Definitely not for families as the gentlemen right before me booked a room for 3 hrs. Basically all you need to know right there.
Nothing like I hada terrible night I couldn't sleep whole nightwith this hotel room was smell really bed and air conditioner was make too much noise. I dont want to say extremely bad hotel but they need to improve cleaning , secure and stingy. But all over all only good thing was front offfice lady was so nice and helpfull. If possible i need my money back. I had trainig for my job i was sleepy all they.
Proximity to Miami Beach Too expensive for little to nothing. I've stayed at Super 8 that are far superior. Regretted I stayed so long (2 days). There were huge water bugs in bathroom. Besides can't expect less, bath tub was lined with black mold.
clean and old world courtesy very plesent
A great location! Loved having a fridge. There is a bike-share station basically around the corner. I arrived before check-in, and they allowed me to check-in early. I will stay at the Dolphin again! Thin walls, so one could hear the neighbors at times.
Location, price, room size, super comfy bed, huge closet.. Loved that it had a kitchen, that just makes everything easier & more economical. Will definitely stay there again! Water didn't get really hot in the shower.. But warm enough to get clean. No other issues what so ever!
The owners and staff were exemplary. I felt cared for and very welcomed there at the Dolphin. The other hotel guests were also extremely lovely people...which reflects well on the Dolphin owners...they attract quality folks because they are a class act! Nothing. All was good
Filthy. No top sheet and sand on the only sheet. Paint peeling, very poorly cleaned. Kitchen faucets backward; left was cold and right was hot. Half a toilet roll when I arrived, ran out on third day with no spare. Thank God for an almost empty box o
It was very quaint and newly remodeled. The bath was small and no place to put the soap or shampoo in the shower but it worked out fine. For a two star hotel, it was a very nice stay
Clean and simple. Super friendly staff. The room itself is nothing fancy and has the basics to enjoy the beach and restaurants not far from your doorstep. Great for extended stays! The staff is very friendly and responsive when called, but not always on-site to help if you need something immediately. They forgot to put soap/shampoo in the bathroom and we didn't realize until late at night.
