Solid value for the buck

The Circa 39 Hotel was a clean and friendly establishment. Our suite was comfortable and the bath towels were plush. It also has its own parking lot which is a plus when renting a car in Miami Beach. I would have no difficulty in recommending this hotel to anyone.

Very Impressed!

So after a long day of flights and layovers, we arrived about 5 hrs before check in but they let us check in early thankfully! The staff were the absolute friendliest that I have encountered. The room was simple and plain, decorated in art/deco style. The bed was pretty comfortable, which is unusual, in my experience. We headed to the beach and the towels/lounge chairs were available for no fee. At 6:30 they had happy hour, and we were defintely happy! As long as the drinks had 3 liquors or less, they were free. This was supposed to end at 7:30 but they went on a bit longer as all the guests were mingling and having a great time. The pool was beautiful and the canopied beds next to the pool were great for relaxing by the pool. The free breakfast was great with many options. Overall this place is a gem and I would defintely reccomend it to anyone! The friendly staff and guests truly made the stay enjoyable.

Nice getaway

The extra ten bucks for the spoil me package was worth it. Free breakfast, beach chair and drinks form 6:30 to 8:00. The beach chairs alone were ten dollars a day. The staff was nice and helpfull for things to do on south beach. Had problem with the room safe, called the desk and someone was there to fix it in five min. Not walking distance to the heart of South Beach but just a ten dollar cab ride away.

Nice restaurante across the street for dinner or lunch. Don't bother renting a car, no place to park it if you go anywhere and it's fifteen dollars a day to park it at the hotel.

Very Laid Back

Circa 39 is an excellent laid back hotel with knowledgeable and friendly staff.Service and cleanliness were impecccable. In an ideal location for Miami Beach (1 min. walk)yet far enough from the hoi-polloi of South Beach and close enough to amenities and transport to make this place a true gem. I would recommend Circa 39 to any of my friends.

Very Cool Hotel

I found this hotel to be very nice and relaxing, the staff was super friendly and helpfull. It's a block away from the beach which was very nice and convienent. The only thing I was disappointed with was the shower water pressure was very weak.

Pretty good first Miami experience

Having no idea where to stay in Miami Beach, I randomly chose Circa 39. Somewhat of a long walk from all the hopping spots in South Beach, but only a block from the boardwalk and beach. Had a great time here. Like most hotels in the area it's rather old, but nicely remodeled and well taken care of. Would definitely visit again.
