After we book online with Expedia, we arrive to the hotel $22.00 for valet parking, we walk into the room and it was the most discusting room I have ever visit. The smell was like mold, cigarretes, dirty and alcohol together. It was dirty with empty beer bottles, the rooms looks like the movie scarface, dirty walls, bended mattress, stained... More

The most disgusting hotel i have ever been in in my life. Walked in asked for my money back, the girl at the front desk said no so i had to pay and pay for another hotel. I dont know how this place is open. it should be condemned. A health official needs to go in there immediately. Ruined my... More

We booked this hotel because of the amazing location.. that's the only thing that was amazing about it. We walked into the lobby and it was small and cramped. Made it to the room, as soon as we opened the door we got the worst smell of pee and mildew it absolutely turned my stomach. There was two hand marks... More

If you want to visit South Beach and enjoy the nightlife and beach, you have to stay on Ocean Drive. There are lots of nearby clubs, sidewalk cafes, shopping and the beach is right across the street. Most of the hotels in the area are these Boutique styles that were huge in the 1970s & 1980s (and largely unchanged). In... More

Let's just say, just sleeping outside somewhere would be a cleaner option than this. My boyfriend and I booked this online from Expedia.com after coming from a cruise. He wanted to stay in Miami for one night to catch some nightlife. When we arrived, it was before check-in time so we paid the extra $30 to check in early. When... More

We had the misfortune to eat lunch at The Boulevard with family on our last day in the US. The service was poor, the food was barely warm, the building was shabby and the bill was astronomical - over $400. Apart from the entertaining spectacle of prostitutes and their pimps obviously organising clients at the outside tables, the interior of... More

Definitely not the Hilton, but if you want a place to crash at night in South Beach for under $80 it's perfect. Old and needs a serious remodel, but it's clean & safe ! Absolutely perfect location just steps away from the beach, shopping, and nightlife ! We had a wonderful 5 day vacation, and never had the need for... More

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever seen. We literally checked in and checked right back out after asking for a second room. The first room had spider webs all around. It was located in the back of the hotel where you can hear the trash trucks emptying trash. There was construction going on within the hotel... More

Stopped in the hotel for lunch on our last day. Attracted by the extremely large goldfish bowl sized cocktail glasses and I must admit that the cocktails themselves were good but each one cost $45 so beware! There were no prices for the cocktails on the menus so we were astounded when our lunch bill was over $350 for the... More
