When we first checked in, the lady had an attitude and was more worried about straightening her hair at the front desk then helping out the customers. She checked us in to another customer's room! We went down to let her know of her mistake and she acted so surprise and gave us a new room that was two double... More

Not only is the place an absolute s**thole but they have charged us twice for the room. It may be cheap, but you'd be better off finding a bus shelter and bedding down for the night. The phrase "chalk and cheese" comes to mind when comparing the website description and the reality.

We booked a package through a travel website and received a great deal for airfare, motel and rental car for a long holiday weekend. I didn't know about this website to check out the reviews because we were so excited to get such a good deal for Miami. I have never been in such a dump in my life. Filthy... More

Let me start off by saying that we are not particularly picky people. When we go on vacation we have things to do and usually go to the hotel only to sleep and shower. Which is why we are usually very relaxed when it comes to choosing a hotel. Our only requirements usually are location, budget and safety. None of... More

Good location, at Biscayne Blvd near Bayside, downtown Miami and Beach. The breakfast is terrible. The rooms are just regular. Not so clean. I had some problems with AC. Our room got flooded all our stay at the motel.

The carpet of the room was totally disgusting, it was stained, totally dirty. The worst thing was the bathroom, it looks horrible! In the shower, the curtain doesn´t cover the total lenght and height, so the water comes out, the bathroom flooded every time you take a shower!

Location is good. The main problem in the room was the toilet, it is in a regular condition, the curtain in the shower is too short and the water comes out every time you take a shower and you have to use sandals all the time because the carpet is totally disgusting. The toilet was not clean during our stay... More
