We spent two nights at the Surfcomber last week (April 2012). There is no shortage of hotels along South Miami Beach, but we booked at the Surfcomber because we are loyal Kimpton customers. We knew going in that Kimpton only recently acquired this hotel, and it was obvious during our stay that the facility isn't up to the standards a Kimpton customer might expect. The room we stayed in was clean but very small. The hallway off the room was so dark that we had trouble figuring out which way our key card was positioned while trying to open our door. The music playing in the lobby was so irritating that we could barely stand to stay down there to drink our (weak) coffee in the morning. On the other hand, the staff members we encountered were friendly and helpful. The beach is beautiful; we had fun swimming in the ocean. The pool is big enough to swim laps. I think Kimpton could improve the hotel in a flash by installing more lighting in the hallways, serving higher quality coffee and wine, and changing the tunes in the lobby.
