"Very nice hotel as long as your paying for and expecting s three star property. Staff very nice and helpful. Rooms are on the small side. But nicely appointed . Breakfast buffet is on the weak side. They have a full kitchen. But charge you extra for simple fresh fried eggs. Location is good. But pool and patio is a bit small and literally 10 yards and same street level as Collins Ave. so a bit noisy and fumes from non stop traffic . Domestic beer is $10/can. About a 500% markup. Plus service fees and taxes. Your like at $15 for a beer. But. It is Miami Beach. Overall. Nice lobby. Nice staff. I give the hotel 3.0-3.5 stars"

Overview

Built on the foundation of the historic Ankara Motel, the Gates Hotel South Beach features a look that blends art deco-inspired architecture with modern comfort and vintage glamour. 

The 235 cheerful guest rooms feature colourful headboards and are adorned with locally inspired, abstract artwork. Accommodations include desks, flat-screen TVs, refrigerators, coffee makers and granite bathrooms with walk-in showers; some rooms have balconies with views of the lake or city. Families and groups can spread out in suites with separate bedrooms and sofa beds in the living rooms. 

Cabanas line the newly expanded, spacious pool deck that overlooks Lake Pancoast and also offers lounge chairs and a poolside bar. The property features a new Mexican-inspired restaurant, Agaveros Cantina, as well as a lobby bar and lounge and a fully equipped fitness centre. Guests of all ages are greeted with complimentary, freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies upon arrival, and Wi-Fi is free throughout the building. 

Located on Collins Avenue, the hotel is across the street from the beach and a five-minute drive from the Miami Beach Convention Centre and the shops and restaurants of Lincoln Road Mall. Just 10 minutes away is iconic Ocean Drive, while the Port of Miami is a 20-minute drive.

room was nice, staff was nice. things were limited with the hurricane, that was understandable and nobody's fault.
Other Comments
there were changes due to the hurricane, travel zoo had made the changes and the hotel screwed up the reservation, called me while I was out that I was supposed to be checking out. I had to call travelzoo to intervene and straighten it out. we had to relocate rooms to another floor. hotel is a little out of the way

Rooms were average. When you enter, you are immediately at the restroom sink and a small refrigerator underneath. Very unappealing and allowed those walking by to see whatever you had on the bathroom counter top. WIll not stay here again no matter what the discount.

Onsite, the hotel check-in agent attempted to charge me again for the stay although I had already paid Travelzoo. THEN, there was a $100 hold on my card for the one-night stay. I found this ridiculous, especially since as a DIamond Hilton Member, I already received complimentary breakfast so it was unlikely that I would have any incidentals as I was checking out in the morning. FInally, it took over 20 minutes to check in. Next to me others checked in within 5 minutes but my process took way too long to say I had a pre-paid stay. I didn't find the staff to be friendly or knowledgeable about the Travelzoo offer OR about their own elite program benefits. I had to come back to the front desk to get access to wifi as the online system didn't work for me to enter my name and room number.

The text messages received checking on us was a nice touch. We were able to ask for a couple of things housekeeping forgot to replenish.

Loved the staff, very friendly, bed was comfortable. Housekeeping neglected our room the second day but fixed it the next day. Thought the pool needed work, a water feature would keep the water fresh, lounge chairs were very uncomfortable and old. Other then that our experience was great.

Walking distance to lincoln rd mall and beach.

Valet was NOT convenient. Could not call for truck ahead of time. Valet ran it over the curb. Not a convenient way to check out when everything else was electronic.

The hotel is a great location and the customer service was excellent. The hotel is clean and quiet (not the place to stay if you're looking for a party atmosphere). There are activities such as a pool table, Jenga and a ping pong table. They also have bikes to rent for free which is a great touch. They offer a free shuttle to the beach but it's not needed because the beach is two blocks away from the hotel. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.
