The location of the hotel is not bad. Right on ocean drive/fifth street which is the part of ocean drive which is a little more quiet. The room was clean but a little too small to fit the 2 beds and leave enough space to easily move around. The staff was very friendly, we could even park out rental bikes in the office for 1 night.

The breakfast is the big loser in this hotel. It’s organised in the second building but I would not even call it a breakfast. Small carton plates, 10 different kind of coffee cups. Stone hard ‘croissants’. Just nothing about the breakfast is good. Parking 25 dollars per day of stay is considered normal nowadays in Miami beach. Read less

...so first off you have to remember this is Miami Beach...the home of awful service and hideously overpriced everything! Thus, for a price of around $120 for the one night we stayed before jetting off to the Caribbean, this was a bargain in peak August season.

...so first off you have to remember this is Miami Beach...the home of awful service and hideously overpriced everything! Thus, for a price of around $120 for the one night we stayed before jetting off to the Caribbean, this was a bargain in peak August season. Yes, the view wasn’t great but we were quite high up and the breakfast may have been a bit of a joke but that was ok too. At the end of the day, the room was clean, the bed was half comfortable, the temperature was ok and the shower worked fine so it did the job. However, the real super deal here was the front desk staff. Not only were they super friendly on both check in and check out and really chatty (not just small talk), but they also went far above and beyond the call of duty when we got to our next destination and my niece realised she must have left her precious soft toy bunny in her room. After searching the bunny was found by housekeeping and subsequently returned to the UK, all thanks to the fab team at Ocean Five. This really was hospitality at its very best and a lovely change from the usual surliness you expect to find in Miami. Well done Ocean Five...you may run a basic hotel, but you run it well and you care about your customers, so I would highly recommend you to anyone. Read less

For beach access the location is the best you can get without being beachside. There are a large number of restaurants and other businesses to meet the needs of travelers in the immediate area.

For beach access the location is the best you can get without being beachside. There are a large number of restaurants and other businesses to meet the needs of travelers in the immediate area. Check-in was quick, friendly and efficient. Rooms were clean and the memory form mattresses cool and comfortable. Internet access was free and fast. Continental breakfast is provided. These are the highs. The room was small and cramped with little storage. I'm glad we only stayed two nights before a cruise. While the A/C did a good job of cooling it was obnoxious with regards to noise. Noises it made in sequence: whisper quiet fan for a few seconds; pressure washing the outside wall, jet landing in the background, buzz that grew in intensity until the compressor shut down. Repeat...frequently. The units in our friends' room was similar. The sink area (in the room proper) was tiny with no shelf or other storage. Read less

Ideally located on Ocean Drive, 5mns walking distance from South Beach, 5 to 10mns walk to Cuban, Italian or Colombian restaurants, Ocean Five is the place to stay. Exterior design with Art Deco style, valet parking, receptionists often speak very good French, always here to help and provide good tips (best restaurants in town). Rooms are large with queen size beds, clean, with good bathroom (Italian shower) and kitchen. Great time here. We will come back ! Thank you Read less

The valet service sucks and you have to wait forever to get your car. I almost missed my flight because my car couldnt be located. The rudest staff member that made my stay uncomfortable , goes by the name Josue. Every question I asked him was responded to with an attitude. I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE Read less
