We stayed in a private apartment in this hotel, and that was good. Our host was great and the apartment was clean and nice. The location is great and it's relatively cheap, but unfortunately, the valet parking (southern parking) lost our car keys and we had to spent AN ENTORE day waiting (and pushing) for them to fix it. We... More

I must preface this review by saying that we rented directly from an individual rather than any of the management companies mentioned here (of which there are several). The location is approximately 1 mile to the Publix grocery store - this makes for a nice morning walk to and from, plus an excuse to stop at the French Artisan bakery/restaurant... More

We planned a trip for a group of 7 stay in for a fun miami weekend. Our 2 bedroom "adjoining suite", did not connect anywhere they are just two rooms side by side. Rooms were VERY poorly maintained, we kept finding huge roaches during our stay! The elevators don't work, the security is a joke, you have to give your... More

I sometimes think that when someone says "disgusting" they are over reacting, but I have had it wrong all along. On the website it says that you can't check-in until 3:00 P.M. I called ahead to make sure and they said that i could check-in at 11:00 A.M. I arrived at the hotel at around 1:00 P.M. and discovered that... More

All I have to say is that this is the most disgusting place I have ever stepped foot it. I found 3 cockroaches in less than 5 minutes. Told the reception and I was completely ignored. This literally just happened to me. I grabbed my things and left.

We arrived into Miami early in the morning from Atlanta GA. We went into the hotel about 6am and the security desk told us that the registration people weren't in until 8. OK that was fine so we went and ate and looked around town. At 8 we went back to try and check in early and they said we... More
