Penguin Hotel "I'm
super picky, but I loved the Penguin!!!"
Date: January 21, 2006
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, New York, NY
I've travelled all over the world and I have been spoiled with wonderful
hotels, hence I'm super picky and hard to please. BUT the Penguin
was fantastic. I had read reviews condemning the Penguin, but it was
very cheap and I was on an unfortuantely tight budget. When I arrived,
I found the most pleasant surprise. The hotel is FANTASTIC.
Penguin Hotel "Not the best choice- two stars and less"
Date: February 2, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Dallas, TX
Where should I start? They are definitely overpriced. You can find
a cheaper price on a search engine though. Let me start w/the service-Was
the room ever really cleaned out? We had to ask for a garbage can.
The bath water was never warm enough. Looks more like the Bates Hotel.
The only reason they are worthy of two stars is because of the Front
Porch Cafe. They are not the same company, by the way. That food was
great. The other good thing about the hotel is that it is facing the
beach, but don't let the pictures on the web fool you. The oceanfront
view is the highest priced room. Not really worth a second stay. Try
some time share. There is no free parking of course and no pool at
all. No hair dryer, no first aid, no iron. This is a BYOS, Bring Your
Own Stuff hotel.
Penguin Hotel "Terrible Experience"
Date: July 15, 2004
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Pittsburgh, PA
Someone should take the time and energy to sue this place for
false advertising. They claim in their brochure to have parking
and a pool and they have neither. The older front desk woman was
one of the rudest and most confrontational "service"
person I have ever come across. The rooms are small and tacky
and they made us put a deposit down for the tv remote and there
were no towels available!?! The only bright spot was that the
restaurant was good and the waiters were nice and helpful, but
apparently they just rent the space and couldn't help with any
of our room problems.

The staff are unfriendly and make you feel unwelcome. Roaches
roam the halls and the rooms. Not at all luxurious...worse than
a motel 6. If you want to relax and not worry about taking roach
eggs home....don't stay at the President or the Penguin on South
