I am looking to stay near a beach so that I can get a few pics actually on the beach and I don't want to pay a arm, leg and a foot. my sister and I are the only ones going and are looking to have a nice stay for 3 nights.
the best western i forgot wat street it was on but it was an oceanfront hotel in miami beach aand the famous boardwalk that leads to southbeach was right there so it was nice and not at all expensive. probably one of the cheapest ull find in that area!
Suggest you consider Ft. Lauderdale beach area. Prices are less than South Beach. Consider the Sheraton Yankee Clipper, Marriott Beach Hotel, or the Embassy Suites in Deerfield Beach. Lots of young people go there and there are a great many restaurants and lively entertainment. It also depends on your budget. Believe it or not, a good travel agent can advise you, instead of booking on the web. Signed Tamara (a retired travel agency manager).
If you look on yahoo hotels they have some hotels on miami beach in front of the beach for under $100... but no guarantee tat they will be nice and clean inside (seems like if u pay less than 100 it will be run down looking) but just letting ya know! im trying to get one in front of the beach too. read the reviews and amenities too.
the Westim Diplomat on Miami Beach ~ luxury at its finest.
Will run you about $325 a night but it is worth it
