My bf and I spontaneously decided that we want to spend the weekend at Miami for just 1 night and I found this motel 1 day before the departure. Other motels and hostels are all booked for twin private rooms and they have ridiculously high price for a hostel with dorm room. But Shalimar's price was actually lower than the... More

Shalimar is not just any regular motel, but in fact the best Boutique Motel in Miami! Plans had changed and I was driving around desperately looking for somewhere clean and safe to sleep for the night, short to say Lourdes tucked me in and I'm a happy returning guest!

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
