Poor Housekeeping Records

Great location, room was clean, however apparently housekeeping has problems with their records. An attempt to charge $10 for (2) Fiji waters was made. They were untouched. I had to correct that with the front desk. A charge for $16 was made to my credit card for (2) towels days after my departure from South Beach. They were left on the bathroom floor. So now I have to dispute the charge with my credit card. I also had a problem with reservations. I called the hotel 24 hrs. upon my arrival to add an additional night. When I got there, they had no record of it. Once it was added, the lady at the front desk called our room when we had one more night left to stay and told us we had to bring the keys down and get out. I had to talk to management to straighten it out. It was obvious everyone was not on the same page. There are a ton of other places to stay and I will be choosing another place upon future arrivals. Another thing to note is they have an automatic 18% gratuity added to your food bill if you decide to eat there.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Clevelander Hotel

t Expect To Sleep! LOUD!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The pool was not working during my first stay at the Clevelander - so I visited again. This was a mistake! You simply CANNOT sleep here! Drunk Girls running up and down the halls screaming and pounding on doors at 4:00 and 5:00 in the morning! Horrible! The rooms were tiny and we had NO air conditioning! VERY HOT! They claimed it was working, but never fixed it. I will never stay there again, even with earplugs!

Noise, noise and more noise

Great location and awesome bar, nothing say 'Miami' like the Clevelander. Some would find the rooms small, hot and noisey but this is the place to party and crash so don't complain about it. Families stay away but young people who'll love it!!!

Best location Clevelander Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
A friend (35), my husband (36) & I (25) stayed at the Clevelander Hotel in March this year (2004). Clevelander Hotel is the best there is if your in South Beach to party. It is right in the heart of busy Ocean Drive and across the road from the beach. The staff are easy to get along with & go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The rooms were clean, with tiled floors, air-con & fan. Looking out our window you could see the beach, the hustle & bustle of Ocean Dr & the crowd making their way to the Clevelander for yet another night of partying. Warning- if you want sleep, don't stay here. Luke the hotel manager approached us everytime to say "G'day" (Hi) it felt like home. Spring Break couldn't have been spent in a better place.

Me and some buddies went down in 02 and 03 before we stayed on Collins and found the Clevelander by accident. 03 we stayed at the Clevelander and did not sleep. We were able to get out of bed and walk downstairs to the all night party at the pool and not to mention the rest of the beach. We had a first hand view at the most beautiful woman in south beach at a bikini contest at the poolside. The Clevelander in the only place to stay to be in all the action and to get in trouble. We will be back in June 04.

Party Hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This place was crazy! After a hard night of drinking I was woken up by the Playboy Playmates putting on a show in the outdoor Bar. Jay-Z DJ Clue and Nas all decided to pop in for a drink. It is right on the strip so while you are out trying to kick it to girls, you have BMW's Bentlys and massive amounts of bikes crusing by checking the place out. It is hard to get sleep there but if your planning for a relaxing ge-a-way do not stay here......When I go back I am staying at the Clevelander

South Beach Fun!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have stayed at the Clevelander in South Beach a half dozen times or so and have had GREAT luck. The hotel Staff is great. The rooms are not new but are in good working order and VERY clean! It may not be the place if your looking for exttreme peace and tranquility....It can be a little festive at the bar... But who goes to South Beach to sleep all the time! The best thing about the hotel is the location (its right in the heart of of South Beach). The bar is really fun the food is very good! The Clevelander is just FUN!!!Terry & Rhonda (41 & 42 years old)

I loved the Clevelander. I met some friends down there for Dolphins/Eagles football game!! Talk about a crazy weekend!!! I watched the game on a HUGE projection tv they had set up by the pool... had food and drinks served to me all night!! The service was great. They even had a trivia game going on -- my friend won a Dolphins Chair!!! The pool area rocks!! The hotel is great. It has everything you could possibly need in South Beach -- an all day party and a comfortable bed!! The hotel staff were awesome!! They all knew my name by the end of the trip... I felt like a made a hundred new friends. The location is the key here -- the beach is across the street!! You can't get much better than that!! I can't wait until my next trip back to the Clevelander and South Beach!!!

Big Bang for your Bucks!!

What a great time. Came into town to see a Dolphin game and I didn't want to go when it was time. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Not that large but clean is more important. Great location and the staff rocks, from the front desk to all of the bar staff. Can't wait to go back!

We stayed here last October, 2002 over Halloween. The place is gross - and the service is AWFUL - we were never able to speak with a manager about the fact that the pool was closed when we were told that there would be a pool the weekend we were coming. They basically just laughed at us. The rooms were dirty and our faucet leaked the whole time, keeping us awake. The floors were filthy. Also, the pool was closed and it looked dirty anyway. I would never stay here again. This is a place to come to at night and party, not stay for a night. It's just not a nice place, and it's not exactly cheap either. Find another hotel to stay at and come party at the Clevelander and leave it at that.

The room was old and dark. The bathroom was nasty, but had great shower pressure. The location is excellent.
