Our preferred choice when in Miami. Great service, comfortable rooms and away from the bustle of Miami Beach. Special thanks to Claudia and to May for thé lovely room overlooking the pool and the late checkout. Also to the manager, Mr. Poupodopolos for arranging for our shopping to be received and kept for us in our absence. We'll be back,... More

This is an older hotel that could appear much more inviting with some cosmetic attention. The rooms are comfortable, the beds in particular, but somewhat dated. It is my understanding that the rooms themselves are being renovated, section by section, and the renovated room I stayed in was very nice (hint: on the second floor). The pool and pool area... More

It is conveniently located across the street from the University and the metro line, meaning you can take the train straight from the airport without having to worry about any transfers or expensive cab rides. The hotel is also conveniently located just a few minutes... More

The location is definitely a plus (right across the street from U of M and the metro line), and the front desk staff were nice. Nonetheless, the hotel is pretty old, with tired rooms and furnishings. Not one of the best Holiday Inn models ...
