Searching for a hotel to stay overnight for my August 19th trip. I reserved a room at this hotel on May 30th, 2014. Free cancellation is offered, up to 3 days before my arrival. Today is June 5th, 2014 and do you know Shalimar Motel took the room fees off my credit card. WHY????. I want my money back and... More

On the plus side: The room was very clean Breakfast was good, but of limited quantities (one bagel, one cup of coffee). Staff at reception very helpful. Close to port, for cruising. Close to airport. Safe area (despite what the taxi driver said). On the negative side: The room was very hot on arrival. The A/C was so noisy we... More

Stayed here for one night before leaving on a cruise. Was only a 10 min drive to the Port of Miami. Drove down from NY and was delayed due to massive traffic. I called in and told them I was on my way but would probably arrive at about midnight. They said that would be ok and wished me a... More

We stayed here for a night before a cruise and we were pleased with the Shalimar. I had booked and paid online. We arrived and Clifford checked us in with no problems. We had two rooms; one queen and one king. Due to our questionable stay in Plantation FL the previous night our friends asked to inspect their room first.... More

I have stayed here several times. I am not a picky person when it comes to hotels or motels. The main reason why I need a place is to hold by belongings, safe, and mainly affordable. This is as good as it gets for me without paying Hilton prices.its a pretty safe neighborhood. I always have a car and never... More

The motel is a very good choice for the money it costs, the staff (ask for Josh) very helpful and friendly. The breakfast included exceeds the normal standard! Miami Beach is easy to reach. Very recommendable!

Stayed for three nights in early February prior to our Cruise. Upon arrival, we found out that they'd "cancelled" one of our two rooms as the credit card had been declined. Two things wrong with that: credit card was fine and was used for the other room too, second, even though they claimed to have emailed us about this, no... More

The Shalimar is an old motel in a gentrifying neighborhood in Miami. Once home to prostitutes and god-knows-what-else, the neighborhood has cleaned up and is improving. We stayed here for one night on our way to Key West and it was perfect for that. The locks are horrible, the check-in takes forever (no computers) but the rooms are remodeled and... More
