I am a seasoned traveler and i have never seen a hotel with such dirty, gross, filthy rooms before. The ceiling looked like it was going to fall on my head, the shower was gross the walls were stained or peeling. The staff was rude, useless and condensending. I would rather stay at home and burn money in a fireplace then stay at The Wave Hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Wave Hotel

Never again

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Wave Hotel March 2004. It was the worst experience I have ever had. The last night in the hotel, items were stolen from our room (purses, clothing, sunglasses, etc). We were issued 3 keys, yet somehow, key #4 was used to unlock our doors while we were at dinner. Staff was rude and unhelpful in dealing with the situation. No apoloigies were made, the manager blamed the loss of items on us. I would not recomend this hotel under any circumstances. The rooms were cheap... you get what you pay for.


from Sir911
The rooms here were not that fancy....very simple. But the hotel was conveniently right next to the strip, without being right in the middle of all the noise. Plus the staff was incredibly helpful & friendly.

Calling This Place A Dump is Doing it a Favor!

First of all, the website says there is a lot to park your car in.
Great, except it was ALWAYS full. We were forced to valet the car every day of our stay. Our rental car was worse for it. Scratches everywhere when we took it back.

Service... a joke. We arrived late and were met with the attitude that we were annoying the front desk person. That should have been a clue as to how the service would be the rest of the trip.

The room... absolutely disgusting. If it were not Spring Break, we would have looked elsewhere but doubted we could get another room somewhere. The bathroom was so filthy we wore flip flops in the shower.
We were met with a dirty bathmat hanging from our tub. There was hair and gunge everywhere. The room itself was abysmal. The lighting was non existent. You had to squint to see across the room at night even with the light on. Oh and I forgot, the bathroom was so small the door smacked into the toilet everytime you closed it.


Hated to wave good-bye

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Wave Hotel is everything I expected in a boutique hotel in the Art Deco district. It was like a small cozy Paris hotel, devoid of any pretentious Ritz-Carleton-like decor. Yes, tiny rooms - but I spent the least amound of time in there as possible since I was on a business trip by day and partying by night...Speaking of which, the hotel bar is a completely chill place to hang out after a long work day - and the food at the newly opend "Stella" is fabulous...as good as any bistro in NYC at 1/2 or 1/3 of the price. The staff is incredibly attentive, and yes, Miguel is the bomb...but do watch out for his heavy hand...but they were all great...Patty, Victor, Jenny, etc...I felt like they were all friends by the end of my stay. Rooms could use a little better lighting, but were clean and neat.

A nice hotel for a good getaway

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent 3 nights here with friends from Cincinnati and Venice Italy.
Found the hotel off the tripadvisor web site. Since we were with another couple from Italy , we wanted to stay at Delano, or the National, but was not sure they wanted to spend that kind of money. So, prior to them arriving in the U.S., our friends and us from Cincy, booked the room after we called. Talked with a fine young man, explained what they had to offer. Once we found that this would best fit our needs we called back and booked directly. We got two regular rooms and my wife and I chose a "superior" room, which was nice, but still trying to figure out what we paid $20 extra anight for. Was told by friendly staff that you get a ocean sight room and it is a bigger room compared to most. Well, There was no way to see the ocean, as we looked over to an apartment next door. The rooms were what you make of them. We paid avg. of $150 a night. Walk in closet, wood hangers, safe and two robes. The bath was fine, but had some wear, but expected. All ceramic tile, but good hot water. The room has a modern look, with a flash of europe. The bed is fine but you will keep hitting your shins on the oddly boxed in mattress. I know this is for looks, but I came home with bruises on both my shins. TV,is ok, but hey, what are you doing watching TV in Sobe?? Stocked mini bar on honor system. Sodas and Beers ran $3-4. Wanted to enjoy a Corona, but there was no opener, so put it back and went to the bar. Maybe that is the point of no openers.
Room had a sound machine, and we did enjoy. They provided beach towels as you are 500 feet from the beach access. Had a great time at the bar.
Migul(sp?) was wonderful. So was Patricia. Sandra was very nice at the Main lobby. Bar is small, has about 6 stools and 3 or 4 small tables. A very nice front covered porch/enterance with 2 to 3 over stuffed couches, and tables were available to take drinks out, and watch people go by and enjoy the night. Smoked a fair share of cigars out there.
Spent most of our time out there before hitting town as a warm up..
Went to Delanos for dinner, which is a small walk or $7 cab ride. Went to Jake Stone Crab??? I hope that was the name of the place. Food was ok but good to watch people. Delano was the place to eat, along with people watching and talking. Went to B.E.D., a unique bar, simular to Tabu at the MGM Grand in Vegas. Pretty people, having good time. Nice to come back to hotel after a quick visit to Mango's....Wow!! I am 40 years but there were people of all ages there. Felt more comfortable at Delanos, but what the hell! Took small elevator back to room, and had a good nights sleep. House keeping was good, I always leave a little tip on the pillow, and hope they do a little better job than normal. Check out was flawless, and they called us a cab to airport at 6am.All in all a very nice hotel for the price. Clean, very very friendly, and hip . I would stay at the Delano next time, but for the price here, you get a great value.

t Do It!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The best thing about this hotel is the website and hotel lobby. My boyfriend arrived much earlier than I and when asked about the room all he could say was "I'm in the room." This was not a good sign considering he RARELY complains about anything. When I arrived, I knew we were out of there. The king-sized bed took up the entire room. We were constantly bumping into each other the entire night. The television sat on a stand which was directly in front the bed. So, if you sat on the edge of the bed to watch television it was like sitting in the first row of a movie theater. The carpet looked original to the hotel. I was afraid to walk on the floor in bare feet. There were no robes as promised on the website and the shower looked mildewy. The room was absolutely freezing and the controls were not working. The hotel only gets 7 channel. They have no cable and according to the maintenance man they don't even have a cable antenna. We checked out the next morning and went to the Essex House. Much, much better!!! We were given a discount on the suite which was three times as big as the room at the Wave. I would never stay at this hotel ever again in life and would discourage anyone else.

Not bad

from A TripAdvisor Member
When we checked in on 01/22/04 we were given a glass of mamosa...a nice way to arrive! But the first room they sent us to had not been cleaned.
The second room they gave us was on the smoking floor, which I had specifically not requested. The third room was okay but had two double beds (we were staying there as a couple) and it was at the front of the hotel, which was very noisy at night with racing engines, screeching brakes and drunk revellers. The room was small -- but most Miami Beach hotel rooms are small, folks. There were no bathrobes, which the website promised, and the minibar did not contain everything that was on the inventory list. The continental breakfast was a nice added value -- yogurt, granola bars, cereals, fruit salad, pastries, bagels, coffee and juices. It was also nice to have free internet access in the lobby and we weren't charged for the local calls we made in the room.
Overall, I would recommend the Wave Hotel if you're not looking for luxury. The staff is a bit grumpy but we didn't have to have too much interaction with them.

Funky and Great Locatin

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was looking for something fun, different, not a Holiday Inn. That's what I got. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are TINY, but that adds the charm. Got lots of style and is in a great location. On the Ocean Drive, but it's pretty quiet at that end. I can't wait to go back. (The staff were okay, a little snotty.. but who cares)


from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel itself was not too bad, the valet parking guy neglected to move our car from the fire pump after I specifically told them its parked at the pump , they said no problem we'll move it right away.
Well the next morning when the car came back it had a 150 dollar ticket on it! I handed it right to the front desk and they said NO PROBLEM we'll take care of it. Well a few months later back in NY we got a letter in the mail that we still owed this money. I called the hotel and spoke with the manager who was rude. and he told me that he is sorry but he cant help me, I had the name of the girl at the counter that told me not to worry and everything and he said well she shouldnt have and she made a mistake so I had to pay the consequences for their obviously un-educated staff. Going to Miami again in Jan and would never stay there again.

Wave Goodbye! Before You Stay!

Top Local Tips for Miami

Taverna Opa I highly suggest Taverna Opa on Ocean near Nicki Beach. It is a greek restaurant with belly dancing and entertainment. We went there for my girlfriends birthday and had a great time. Don't be afraid to get up and dance on the table as you wont be the only one doing it!

Dolphin Swin One of the best experiences: to swin with dolphins at Dolphin Cove (www.dolphinscove.com) in Key Largo. It worth every penny!

South Beach is for grown ups I really don't understand why people bring kids to South Beach. There isn't anything for children to do. SoBe is about the beach, shopping, and partying. Take the kids to Orlando or another beach. Leave one place for the grown ups please!
