To begin I would say absolutely do not believe in the photos posted by the hotel itself. It looks like that may have been what the place looked like 15 years ago or something. It currently looks pretty run down. I would also preface this by saying I'm a very easy going person, and find humor in terrible situations. It... More

This hotel was a complete dump. Cheap and inexpensive yes, but the pictures are from the olden days. No lamps, no alarm clocks, TV only had a handful of channels. Was the red mark on the bathroom wall a blood stain? Made sure to wear socks and shoes when walking on the carpet. Also parking is limited. If you are... More

Room was filthy, blinds did not close properly, there was nowhere to hang clothes, the furniture consisted of a desk with the front missing and no chair. Light bulbs did not work, the room smelled awful a combination of stale tobacco and dirty socks. I would have expected this in a $20 a night motel in a third world country,... More

In contrast to the nice picture on the internet, our room was terrible. Dirty worn carpet worn through to the padding, window partially covered with a bed sheet because blinds were too short and falling down. Smelled terrible. Free continental breakfast consisted of one flavor of muffin and a coffee pot that looked like it had not been washed thoroughly... More

If you are looking for a terrible hotel, you have just found it. It is dirty. The bed has fungi on its clothes. the carpet is dirty and has cockroachs in the furniture. The bath pump was not working. I have payed near USD 100 for the worst hotel I have ever stayed. Avoid it.

Do not go here. Surrounded by drug dealers and hopeless people, right next to a strip club. Dirty, scary, unsafe, disgusting. Paper thin walls. Did not sleep all night. Asked front desk to tell neighbors to turn music down. They did but kept making noise. Had a confrontation with them and called the Miami police. Do not go here/it is... More

So I have to cancel it with Hotel Blue. The receptionist was nice to me and promised to to cancel it for me when the booking shows up. In Infact ,... More

When I went to my room, there were an empty paint can and a dirty rag in front of the door. I wondered if I got the wrong room, but to my dismay, it was the right room. The nightmare continued with cracks on the walls, holes on the bed sheets, and hairs in the tub. The bathroom sink was... More

Cracked ceiling.No appliances, not even a plastic beaker in the bathroom. Rear window was unscreened and looked over the... More

The hotel is disgusting, smelly and dirty! I wouldn't even pay $0.01 a nite to stay there. The first room they gave us had black stains on the ENTIRE carpet, including a few red stains. Please see the attached picture. They moved us to a better room and yes it was better than the previous room. However, it was still... More
