“Fun, convenient, clean, great price”

The clay hotel is in the mix of South Beach. If you love food there are delicious authentic restaurants all around. Front desk really friendly and welcoming. Convenient valet with the hotel. First impression of the room and very clean, modern, updated. The hotel is on one of the main strips, expect some party noise. This is a super fun hotel.
