Terrible hotel!! Complained at check out about bed bugs found in my bed after room service came, management only gave us $20 off and a appology. They Refused to give us a larger refund because of "maintenance expences". This came from the owner!!!

We appreciate you bringing the bed bugs concern to our attention; our pest control company reported after checking all areas of your stay that it was clear of any infestation and they experience similar incidents with people traveling from an infested area.

We booked this room because it was the closest place we could find to stay to arrive early the next morning for surgery. The first room we were put in, after the desk person played with the computer for over 5 minutes selecting a room, was bare. We turned on the heat (reverse cycle AC on wall), and it caught... More

If you're in town for a quick trip, I would suggest staying here. I wasn't keen to stay here after reading some of the reviews on the property, but for the price and the convenience it was worth. The room we got was really clean; I've been in places where I've really regretted paying more for what I thought would... More

The hotel website makes this place look like a hidden gem. Don't be deceived by great camera angles and selective editing. This place was sad. I was given a room facing the street. I told them I was a light sleeper, that street noise would be a problem. They assured me the street was quiet at night. Yep, it was... More

We were a bit wary of staying in this motel because of some of the earlier Tripadvisor reviews. However there weren't many affordable hotels in Coral Gables that had vacancies when we were visiting (just after the Superbowl) so we decided to go for it. In fact we found it a very pleasant and comfortable, if basic, motel, representing good... More

I stayed there during summer and the customer service was terrible. They didnt speak english and I had a hard time communicating with them. They gave me a hard time regarding payments and so I drove a bit south on US 1 to find Terrace Inn which was a much better place and better customer service. I dont think Gables... More

My kid is a student at UM and I help her unpack and pack. I go down for a quick trip and don't want to spend a lot of money for a hotel that I only sleep in. I think this place has gotten a bad rap from people that expect more. For $75 (or so) a night, it's fine.... More

We reserved a room in this hotel thru Orbitz. We chose this hotel because it is close to U of Miami and we were attending a graduation ceremony so we did not want to be too far away. We were suppose to stay at our friends place but some more people showed up and he made reservations for us in... More

I made reservations last week to stay for a minimum of 2 days at the "Gables Inn" Hotel located at 730 South Dixie Highway, Miami (in the Coral Gables area). The description of the hotel in the web was attractive for a hotel offering a great price and location. At registration I was informed that the nigthly rate would be... More
