I stayed here for a business trip on a budget. But, the experience is not worth trying to save a few bucks. Daniel who checked us in was very nice and helpful. But, we were bitten by bedbugs in the room. I wish someone would have told me this before I paid $349 for 4 nights. I always travel, but... More

the rooms are quite big but very old and not very clean. I would say they are ok but the building really needs an upgrade also in terms of health and safety. The doors can be locked but it is easy for burglars to break into. The hotel is definitely overpriced and should not be called a hotel. The reception... More

Just OMG. the place was disgusting. The staff was rude, except from a guy in his 60s that wears flipflops. Good location but still a ripoff because of the cleaning. The rooms felt unsafe and the sharing areas looked old and full of people drinking

I made a last minute reservation to attend a conference in Miami Beach, and this was one of the few reasonable properties available on Travelocity. I think the travel services should de-list it. The place was clearly run down, but I did not have time to change rooms the first night. Front desk is unhelpful at best, if there is... More

I am embarrassed to say we stayed here as American Airlines dumped us in Miami for an unexpected overnight stay. We would have preferred to have slept on a park or airport bench it was that bad. Thinking of it makes me feel sick. The bed was terrible (we did check it before we got in it!) but surprisingly was... More

If you could rate a hotel with no stars this one would get no stars. The room comes with nothing other than a TV. No place to hang anything. No cups, glasses, nothing. I suffered for three days here and never had my room cleaned. This has to be the worst hotel in all of South Beach. Never ever stay... More

We saw at least 5 cockroaches in our room. I couldn't sleep because I kept feeling insects over my body. Room was hot and I couldn't turn on the AC because it smelt like a dead animal. Ceiling light didn't work. Bathroom was gross, dirty, cheap, not updated in maybe 30 years. The only upgrades this place made was a... More
