Our travel agent sent us to this doozy. I have no idea what hotel all of these photos are from but they are not the Alamo Hotel. Also do not be fooled by their free parking.... I think there was a total of 6 spots to park? Bad luck if you have a massive car.... I attempted to look past... More

I guess the Alamo gave me what I needed – a place to crash for the night (before going to another hotel the next day). The sheets seemed clean and so did the bathroom for the most part, but the whole place felt like a run-down apartment…and it had a bad funky smell to it. Sure it was cheap, but... More

We booked this hotel "BLIND" on Hotwire because it was advertised as a 2 Star Hotel in the Miami area at 65% off the original cost of $180 per night,,,, well come to find out anyone could book a room at this dump for $80 a night which is what Hotwire charged us claiming this was 65% off!! As soon... More

This hotel is really worthy when you get a price of $25 per person each at that location! The room is big enough for four people, and it is nice and clean; not only that, there is a microwave and a fridge in my room. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The hotel have a really good location. It's not... More

Advertised as free refunds and free parking but there is a 48 hour cancelation policy and the free parking is five or six spaces at the front of the building so plan on paying around $34.00 a day to park. I did not stay here after seeing the room I found another hotel. Even if the room is offered for... More

I booked this blindly via hot-wires secret specials. Once reading the other reviews I was terrified of what I would find once I arrived. Well I was totally surprised to find a 1/2 decent place. The place from the outside looks nothing like the pics i recall seeing online. the location is ideal, as it was SUPER close to Miami... More

It's true that this hotel is old, but as mentioned in other review, if you paid really low price (e.g. 20$/person) keep your expectations low and you will be happy with your stay! To reflect on some previous reviews: • The hotel has now a new, functional elavator • No bed bugs • Staff was not very talkative, but wouldn't... More

This place shouldnt be open by any means. It is old and the people who works there are not friendly at all. They are mean specially the lady in the front desk, the receptionist if you can call her that. They are doing false advertisement when they say you have free parking cause you dont. Overall they should close down..

The property is old, but me and my friend enjoyed our stay. If you go there with low expectation and paying it cheap then it should be fine! I would come back to this hotel, granted the room would be cheap.

Unsanitary hotel. I was suffering for a month from the bites on my body after sleeping on their unsanitary unwashed bedding . There is no service of any kind, no exercise room, nothing works, The hotel is situated though in the relatively good area, close to the bus, but far from the South beach, if that's where you would like...
