Anyone an idea about a nice affordable motel/hotel close to Collins Avenue? Something close to the beach would be great.
I highly recommend the Wyndham Miami Beach Resort, located at 4833 Collins avenue. It is very close to Lincoln Road Mall, South Beach and many nice restaurants and malls. You can take the bus just in front of the hotel and it will take you - back & forth - to the Aventura Mall. Excellent location, nice and clean rooms, affordable prices. Hope this helps!
Mentioned in this answer:
South Seas Hotel is a great modest but modern spot right on the beach (Collins) walking distance from everything South Beach offers.
The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club
Thanks a lot for the replies.. Highly appreciated :)
