Location is decent being so close to SunLife Stadium & a quick walk to Calder Casino & Race Track, but dislike the one entrance/exit to drive in & out of. The restaurant closed super early the Asat night we were there. The whole hotel seems to not have been updated since 1985. We were informed of the no wake up... More

No complaints whatsoever. Painless check in without a reservation. Room was clean and all amenities were in perfect working order. Best part was it was QUIET! I had guests on either side and I did not hear them once. Great price too. Not too far from Miami Gardens center and a short jaunt from Miami and Ft Lauderdale. Will absolutely... More

My sincere thanks to the staff and management at El Palacio Sports Hotel and Resort. I was blown away at the welcome that both teams got upon arrival for the Orange Bowl Game. The Legends Sports Bar is a great place to party with spectacular views of the Sun Life Stadium and the city scape! Doug, thanks to you and... More

My family and I spent the night here after the Miami Dolphins Game. This hotel is extremely close to the stadium which was a huge bonus! Upon entering, I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and well kept the property was. In fact, this place was beautiful! We were cordially greeted and given our room assignment. After inspecting our room,... More

Myself and my fiancé came to the hotel as we have stated here previously to go to the Dolphins games. Location to the stadium great. Now day one we check in and go to buy a drink from the drink machine. It's broke then to find out there is literally only one soda machine in the entire hotel and it's... More

The food at this bar & grill was terrible. I should have turned around and walked out when I had the chance. No one was in there and I know why. The food was atrocious. The grilled chicken was as dry as an old woman's coochie, the chicken wings was like eating chalk with a side of the board and... More

I was in the Miami Gardens area last week and chose to stay at the El Palacio. I was a little apprehensive at first as the reviews seem to be mixed. The property is quite nice. The staff is very friendly and they treat you like family. Rooms are average, but are clean and seem to be receiving updates. Mine... More

No bell help with luggage and the carpets throuout the place had "a smell" to it. For its location down the street from the Dolphin's stadium, I'd give them an A+, but as far as a star rating, I'd have to give them a 2 star rating. There just wasn't much more to this place than convience of location for... More

the closest hotel to the stadium very convenient. We ate dinner the first night and the wings were great. Really loved watching the horse races from the balcony. Tailgated at our balcony better than the parking lot. Drove literally 2 minutes and was at the stadium. Maybe 5 minutes back after the game. Will make this my new game hotel.... More

Really nice! The property was nice and clean. The people was extremely nice, very professional and went out there way to help. This was my first stay at this hotel and I was very skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised. It's conveniently located and my family and I will definitely visit.
