The queen beds for 2 persons are really small. Clock and remote control were not working. Breakfast is 12 dollars per person. The front desk staff were very friendly but the hotel staff made a lot off noise at 2AM. Airconditioning is not automatic so I had to get up to put it on and off and it doesn't work... More

I had avoided this hotel because of the bad reviews, but recently stayed one night when we needed a place right near U. of Miami campus. For the very modest price ($113, I think) I thought it was a very good deal. Our room was big, clean, and the bathroom was spotless. I thought the pool area was very attractive,... More

I waited twenty minutes to check in as only one person was working at the front desk. Our room keys did not work and had to be re-programmed. There is no entrance on the parking lot side of the hotel. Have not located the stairs yet. I concur that the carpet is old and the bathroom small. The vent in... More

I'd managed to survive the entire trip without any bites but got my quota in one night at this hotel. Thought the room looked immaculate. Unfortunately saw mosquitoes flying around and have several big bites as... More

This hotel is a huge disappointment! I am currently a guest at this hotel and feel the rating of "3" is misleading and inaccurate. The carpeting in the room is old, worn, & filthy. The bathroom is tiny, out dated, filthy and smells of mold. We left our room at 8 a.m. and returned at 4 p.m., to find that... More

Me and my mother came to this hotel to visit the University of Miami, and it was PERFECT! The room was large and beautiful with a nice and clean bathroom, a kitchenette, big TV, nice closet, safe, desk, and chair. We had a king bed (very comfortable, no complaints), on the first floor. Our room opened up to the pool... More

Lobby is clean Bathroom is poor: you shower on the floor, no ventilation, no vent, made a big difference in rating the hotel. Internet is free, working, I am typing right now from my room with an iPod. There is a good looking restaurant with a good looking bar, but It opens at 6 pm. We Paid $ 182, which... More

I was nervous about staying at this hotel after reading several of the extremely negative reviews. However, I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Sure, it's not the Biltmore. But it is not priced like the Biltmore either. The staff - specifically Jenny and Edgar - were very helpful. The rooms were clean. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We got... More
