Where do I begin.......First of all when we arrived the room key would not unlock the door. Front desk staff came up to assist and they did open door ......but the battery in the door lock was low so you had to jiggle the handle to open it. I explained to staff that was unacceptable and we would like another... More

I visited with four ladies for a recreational trip over Easter weekend and Luciano at the front desk took care of us the entire time. He made sure we had any supplies we needed, replaced keys, was incredibly knowledgeable, patient and friendly. The location of this hotel is amazing. The rooms do leave much to be desired (no water pressure... More

During my stay at this hotel, i had read some bad reviews, and thought, there is always a few people that are just finicky and love to complain, i am not that person. I tried to get a better room, but there is no better room! The "Plumbing is OLD" as quoted by the manager himself so water temperature may... More

The location is great but I was disappointed with the room. I was there during spring break music festival. The room was very small with plastered walls painted white...room and bathroom needs to be updated. The air conditioning kept going off. We ha to keep getting up throughout the night to turn it back on. Not a nice room. Small... More

This Hotel is in desperate need of an update. We booked on a discount website not knowing the name until after payment. Definitely NOT a 2.5 star as the site indicated. We are very simple people and only ask for cleanliness and a fairly comfortable bed. Real shame as this place had to be awesome in its day. No bar... More

The hotel is very well located. it is steps away from the beach, we could also walk to get to Ocean drive, Lincoln Road etc. The room was clean, very big, lots of space. We didn't use the pool since the beach was so close by. The people at the reception were helpful, always answered our questions with a smile.

I stayed here for 4 nights while attending a show in Miami. The website shows a bright, attractive hotel. This is misleading. On arrival, albeit in the evening, the hotel is dull and dreary, loud music playing to an empty area AND an empty, unstocked bar. The staff were very efficient and friendly on check-in and with subsequent questions I... More

This hotel is really nice placed, the rates are ok, and the front desk staff rocks. It is located in the back of Ocean Drive, three blocks south from Lincoln Road and one from Espanola Way BUT there is stuff that needs to be improved, for example there is no trashcan in the room only in the bathroom, They ran...
