Funky Cheap Miami

Miami Beach. 

Aligator key chains at the Indian Creek Hotel

Before making the long haul flight to Sao Paulo on Wednesday, a one night layover in Miami proved the perfect remedy for pre-travel jitters. Nothing like a dip in the bathtub water of Florida’s Atlantic coast! For a cheap and pleasant evening, check out the Indian Creek Hotel just north of the super touristy sky-rises of South Beach, and step into a funky art deco establishment where toy alligators hang from room keys and tiny lizards roam the poolside patio.

Our room was colored in calming sea greens and blues. A 3 minute walk dumped us onto a quiet(er) portion of the beach where we could swim in peace away from the roar of pesky jet skis.

Practical Info: Indian Creek Hotel  runs doubles for as little as $123 a night (price includes tax). Wifi is available for $6.95 for 24 hours and is very slow, so caveat emptor. Address: 2727 Indian Creek Drive, Miami Beach. Telephone: 305-531-2727.
