hotels in south beach

Help, looking for a fairly cheap hotel in South Beach for May 8-10. Has anyone stayed at the Riande Continental or the Lorraine Hotel?

The two properties you list are on the northern edge of the "fun" part of South Beach. The Riande is closer (the Lorraine being 8 blocks more north), and looks to be a better hotel in general. Neither one would be on my short list-- primarily because they're a little removed from the Action (I always stay on Ocean Drive). But in the price range of these two hotels, I'd go with the Riande.

The last time I went I stayed at the Kent Hotel. It is right behind Versace's mansion and close to all the action. It's nice, intimate and inexpensive.

The Kent is a very good suggestion. If you want closer to the beach (the Kent is a block off), the Avalon Majestic ain't fancy, but it's clean and convenient (a block from the News Café!). The Penguin, farther up Ocean, is also basic but clean, with a great little restaurant (the Front Porch).

Blue Moon isn't bad price or location wise either.

Check out the Clay Hotel at www.clayhotel.com. It's an attractive budget hotel/hostel in the heart of South Beach, two blocks from the ocean.

If you check on quikbook.com, they have the Blue moon for $75/nt,Essex House for $89,Marseilles for $89, Tutor Hotel for $79
Much better choices, and all decent prices

Otherwise, I would bid on priceline.com for a hotel
Check www.biddingfortravel.com for advice on bidding, and you can also see what hotels & prices others have goten through Priceline for the South Beach area

Thanks again. We stayed at the Clay last year in May and loved it. We are staying there for one night already but I just thought I may try out something else for the first night.

Blue Moon or Doubletree Surfcomber. The DT has great location, great beds and quiet (on courtyard side), Blue Moon has a little bit nicer rooms decor wise and not such good location.
