Guest Recommendations
Verified Guest from Brooklynn, NY US rated Marseilles Hotel 8 out of 10 on September 21, 2009
"The rooms are very small and the customer service was horrible. Also, the hotel's kitchen closes at 2:00pm. Therefore, if wanted to after that you would have to find it some where else. I guess you get what you pay for."
Verified Guest from Chicago, IL US rated Marseilles Hotel 4 out of 10 on September 12, 2005
"Nothing fancy but was clean and comfortable and, most importantly, at a great location on an excellent beach within walking distance to most of the places one would want to go in South Beach...and at a great rate compared to all the nearby properties during one of the busiest weekends of the year."
