Myself and 5 friends stayed at the Benjamin during a month end weekend in October. The hotel is ok, not the 4 star advertised, perhaps a few years ago it was. On Saturday a group of guests were partying in the shared balcony with loud music until 4 am. Hotel staff or security was no where to be found after ringing then several times. The party continued at the pool area at 8:30am and was still in full swing when I checked out at 12:00pm. Again, no intervention from hotel staff or consideration for other guests. I expected some noise from Florida road itself, considering it’s very vibey, but even then the noise cuts out at curfew.
Not at the Benjamin though…this definitely ruined the experience of what could’ve been a good stay.
I found this hotel boutique to be very charming. The welcome was second to none. The lady at the reception went out of her way to provide me with a hair drier, as they had none available at the time of my request. The superbly decorated bedroom was huge - with two separate areas - the sleeping area and the reading and relaxing one with a window overlooking the main street. The next day Breakfast by the pool was just excellent.
A warm welcome, welcome drink and very comfortable rooms make this a great choice for Florida Road area. Right next to many good eating places and a nice breakfast to boot. Small pool but good to cool off in summer
Had just one night. Good service, nice breakfast. Road outside is full of great restaurants but can be a Little noisy. Great relaxing swimming pool all downstairs rooms look over this Homely and pleasant furnishings
Nice location, breakfast was fantastic, Michelle is very accommodating. The other staff members are personable and very helpful as well. Clean rooms, no noise in the back. Food choices on Florida are outstanding. Very secure, free happy hour. No refrigerator in the room if important. Wonderful six nights in SA. Nice pool. Much better location than beach areas.
