A couple friends and I went down to Miami for the 4th of July. We didn't want to spend that much money since we wouldn't be in the room that much. This place worked out well. It was WAY cheaper compared to the other hotels for the holiday weekend. Free parking and coffee in the morning. There was a microwave... More

This hotel was very well situated for beach and Lincoln road. Decor was very lively and fun! Lift broken for the 3 nights we stayed which was tricky since we were on the 3rd floor! Staff friendly but too laid back. Strange smell in corridors! Rooms basic and not completely clean. Overall would stay again because it was very good... More

My friend and I stayed here for only one night in order to attend a concert at The Fillmore. We were both pleased with the location, our room, the free parking, and the service. Because of some of the other reviews, we were a little concerned, but our room was much better than we expected. We could walk down the... More

Excellent location for access to miami beach and Lincoln road shopping. Staff very friendly, parking available although haphazard, entertaining parking methods. Don't expect modern art deco rooms but beds are comfy and shower's good so perfect place to stay on a budget. If your looking for a romantic weekend away its not for you but if you need a place...

The hotel is not the best but then it's not trying to be, it is a comfortable hotel close to the beach and amenities. So cheap I was expecting a bug ridden place but it was good. The bad things were the bed in my room, which definitely had seen better days and also the shelf space.

It is located close to everything...the stuff was great and very friendly.. the rooms were not that clean but overall that's what you get for the price you pay for it.. if your a young group of people traveling around states looking to save a little on hotels this definitely would be a good stay.

I turned up without a booking (got stuffed around by another hotel) and the staff couldnt have been nicer or more helpful. You can see its an old hotel but was spotlessly clean. Aircon worked great as did their wifi - strong signal all the time. Only a 5min walk from the beach or Washington Ave where all the restaurants... More

If you love art and design you're gonna love it, from the lobby to every detail in the room. It also has an excellent service from everyone. They have some bikes so you can go know better the city by bike.
