There aren’t a lot of places in Miami that you can stay at for a cheap price, and still be quite close to the action. This place combines both. Right next to downtown Miami, in a residential neighborhood (that is safe). You can park your car on the secured lot of the hotel. I would describe it as a mix... More

Me and my friend booked this hotel for 3 nights hoping for a wonderful vacation, but it turned out differently. It was our first day, we left the room, locked the door on both locks. We came back in the evening. As we walked upstairs to the room we saw the room OPENED (not just unlocked!). I went to open... More

Stayed there October 2, 2014, in town for a youth conference. The room's are old and out dated with a strong urine odor, but we still thought we could put up with it for three nights. What a terrible mistake it was, at around 4:00 am my daughter wakes up to find her bed infested with bed bugs, the gentleman... More

Booked my room, gave them my credit card #, and received a confirmation email. Everything was fine until I got the email that said they have no rooms at the inn, in spite of their confirmation that they sent me saying I had a room. I booked directly through them, and not through a third party so I would not... More

Straight up, if you are ok with simplicity with a touch of adorable-ness then you will enjoy the humble comfort this hotel has to offer. Like anywhere you go not all the staff are so eager and cheery but I found that all the staff was pleasant, I also noticed that they get the most ridiculous complaints- from people who... More

First the good points. The room was very clean and the parking is free. Now for the bad bits. We booked a two room apartment that supposedly sleeps five. However what the booking didn't say was that the fifth person has to doss down on the couch! There was no bed sheet to put on it or a pillow only... More

We have visited the Miami River Inn many times over that last few years and have always enjoyed (and raved about) the staff, the charming amenities, the location, and the fact that a stay there has always enhanced our visit to Miami.... but things have changed. Though we were delighted to see a few familiar faces, the "oasis in the... More

Well, we stayed only one night which we regret. Service lovely, everyone was very nice. You have feeling its lovely complex not a hotel. Old fashion house, old fashion decor, but we liked it. There was computer room with internet and printer which I thought was great idea. Yes, rooms need some work done, and could be cleaner but for... More
