It was "slim pickings".... Finding a reasonably priced place to stay overnight before a cruise out of Miami. This one had decent reviews (3.5) so I figured it would be fine. I was surprised that although we had already pre-paid through hotels.com ($129), they asked for another $10 (service charge) as well as a $100 "security deposit." Upon inspection of... More

It’s not the Hilton but it doesn’t pretend to be anything that it’s not. We booked based on price and expected to have a motel and not a hotel experience. The double room wasn’t any smaller than most small hotels out there. The good... The Managers and other staff was friendly and accommodating. Clean, neat rooms. Free wi-fi access. A... More

I don't know where to start with. This motel reminded of those old days,when there were not much necessities,no hair dryers or power points(to charge your mobile) were needed. Well to add to the list,the rooms were pretty small & beds were worse.Also,bathroom did not even had a bath tub or a hanging space. I guess there wasn't anything else... More

My family and I had the pleasure of visiting this life-like prison simulation last december for one night. Our cells/rooms, though clean, were as bleak as one can imagine. Why an additional security deposit of 100$ per room (even though credit card information was already given) was demanded is quite beyond me, since there is not much to damage beside... More

When I arrived at this hotel I was nervous to see what the room looked like. The hotel looked very old on the outside. But when I walked into my room I was very impressed. It was very clean and I could tell that it was remolded. The area was pretty quiet too. I wouldn't mind staying here again if... More

This Motel is depressing. I arrived early, just for delivery my bags. I returned late night, but the place is dark and sinister for me. You have two keys, one for gate and another for the room door. The room is very small, the bathroom is very small and the bed??? No better comment. Please don't go. When i pushed... More

DEAR Depressed reviewer. It is more likely that you are personally depressed. All the reviewer of the Shalimar Motel give pretty GOOD review for low Budget Motel. We have very clean rooms, we give Free Continental (nice) breakfast, parking and Wi-Fi. Maybe you expected 5 star accommodation In a low price Motel. It is sinister of you to give a... More

The motel fairly nice but the area was a little sketchy and unsafe. Cheap and affordable if you need a quick stay. If you aren't looking for something fancy smanchy then this would be the place to go. It's good for a stay if you have to be close to the AAA.

If you are staying in Miami and want to hang out around Wynwood, or upper east side, this is a great place to stay! Friendly, easy parking, big room, tile floors, great a/c, refrigerator worked, and iron in room. It's a MOTEL- if your staying here you are obviously on a budget and you definitely get a little more than... More
