This place is awful, the front-desk clerk, was intimidating lacking respect, the hotel was in a pretty bad condition, dirty and stinky and was going through some sort renovation. There was a loud music close to the reception area. I end up canceling my reservation when I saw the condition of the hotel. I do not recommend this place.

Inexpensive, decent downtown location, friendly staff... Looks dodgy, but a family owned small hotel... Has a bed, a shower and close to Bayside, AA Arena, freeway in and out of South Beach and Brickell...

Let me state, always pay attention to the reviews. We figured it can't be that bad. We had problems finding the hotel because of the outside construction. The lobby has wood on the walls. (upgrade in progress I think) We slept in our clothes and we did not dare use the tub or shower. The tub looks like someone hand... More

Yes this place screams ghetto!! from inside and out... but as travelers my husband and I are very patient and accommodating.. hence we were alright out here.. and thankfully... More

This hotel should be plowed under! The guy at the front was horrible. He actually hung up on someone trying to book. Then left the receiver off. Bullet holes in the window, horrible conditions. Hookers up and down the street, cops racing by all night. It was horrible and the location was down right scary. So not a place worth... More

Excellent location very friendly and nice staff, I stayed for a whole week without problems and I would do it again, very familiar. I was able to walk everywhere and the bus station and metromover is very close as well.

Well aware of the cheepness of the hotel - I'm still surpriced over the lack of service and the VERY poor cleaning standard - Why run a hotel if you don't have any interest in giving some kind of positive experience. Very bad experience!
