BEWARE!!! According to the Coral Gables Police Dept (Vehicle Theft Unit) , there have been many break ins of vehicles in the hotel parking lot. Management used to have video cameras overlooking the entire lot, but have removed them because "video cameras only give implied safety." We were not told of the Dangers at this hotel when we checked in,... More

After driving 10 hours by myself with 2 kids to see my Grandma in nearby South Miami Hospital, I was greated by an angel at the front desk. Apparently the reservation I made did not specify "non smoking." With little kids with me, this was very important. I explained our story and apologized for my overtired face. She was so... More

Took a trip to University of Miami with 17 year old daughter. Location of Holiday Inn is super convenient. Wasn't expecting too much for the $149 price tag.. Lobby and common areas were very nice including the pool. Breakfast buffet was not that great. Food was edible and coffee was good. We stayed on the third floor. Elevators were quick... More

My husband, sister & I stayed at this hotel in December, 2007, right after Christmas. We had two rooms, both facing the pool with a nice balcony. The rooms are very clean and they are in the process of updating this hotel which is older but has beautiful architecture. The pool area has lush tropical landscaping and the water is... More

This is an older property with an outdoor pool just across University of Miami. The hotel is clean and convenient if you visit U of M. Metrorail stop is 200 yards from the hotel. There are plenty of food establishments close to the hotel, J&J Diner was our favorite.

We stayed at this location for a wedding and found the property to be quite old considering we paid considerably to stay there. The room was clean. However, we were situated on the third floor - far away from the elevator or stays. The pool was great. The restaurant buffet was overpriced. I think you may be able to find... More

My son, nephew, and I stayed during the football camp in the summer. Itt is very coveniently located to food and football. We could have walked to UM across the road. Nice after a hard days practice to come back to a cool, clean, room with a pool view!

My sister and I stayed two nights here while visiting UMiami. On the second day, we returned to our room and found a paper towel smeared with fecal matter lying on the bathroom sink right next to our toothbrushes and retainers. The general manager (Derek McCeleroy) refused to reverse the charges on my credit card, which is the least that... More

I stayed at this hotel during the Christmas holidays in 2006. It is over 40 years old. The hallways show its age and the hall carpet needs shampooing. The rooms are well furnished and recently upgraded after water damage from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I missed not having a fridge and microwave oven. I requested a room overlooking the courtyard...
