The Beach Place Hotel is a no-frills option within walking distance of a quiet beach, but well removed from the glitzy Miami center. This budget property's 53 rooms are starting to show signs of wear and tear, and have coffeemakers and mini-fridges; some have kitchenettes with microwaves and sinks. There's an outdoor pool with loungers, and palm trees throughout the grounds lend a beach-appropriate vibe. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet, and certainly more family-friendly than party-friendly, but there are bus stops out front for those who want to reach South Beach or downtown. Parking and Wi-Fi are free. The nearby Miami Beach Days Inn North Beach has similar amenities as well as an on-site restaurant and bar, for a slightly higher rate.
