We showed up at this hotel very late in the evening because of a missed flight at the airport and no hotels available. Found this hotel on the board in the airport after calling about 14 hotels. We were two families travelling together. It was like a movie - in our exhaustion we took our bags out of the cab... More

Run down rooms, dirty pool, poor service, coffee cups about 2oz size, staff is rude, also lots of druggies hanging out, Don't stay here! Caution caution! This is the worst hotel I ve ever stayed at, it was actually dangerous to stay here ruined our time, we checked in there was no refunds after paying and before seeing the room.

We stayed at this hotel one nite because of the price and could not find another hotel that as available as a cruise ship sailing the next day assured 100% occupancy from Miami to Fort Lauderdale. Everyone has said what needs to be said - and more. This skanky place reeks. At some point, it could have been a real... More

Let me start by saying that we did not have a lot of choices when we stayed here. It was Christmas Day and we were in Miami Beach. Being that we were in Miami Beach and @ $79, it was the cheapest we can get. All we want is a place to rest. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy as... More

I did see a little water bug, but I killed it and didn't see another! Water pressure and the temperature kept changing as people were flushing... More

We stayed here in February of 2012 and loved our stay, however we were very disappointed this time. Although the room was clean and location is excellent I can't recommend this place any longer. The service was terrible. Employee at the front desk was incredibly rude. We were not allowed to use our coupon. Upon check out we took our... More

This motel is the cheapest in the area, so you can hardly be shocked that it isn't the nicest. The bed, furniture, linens etc are in desperate need of replacement but they're no better, no worse than the cheaper Interstate motels. If you're looking for luxury, don't go, but if you're on a budget and don't mind a few rough... More
