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.

As a couple who have stayed in many American motels of varying standards, this was particularly disappointing. The hallways smell of urine and the room didn't smell much better! Obviously it was v noisy due to its position. The breakfast was laughable: stale bread and tasteless coffee. The whole place needs refurbishment. Avoid if at all possible!

Not a 5 star but all we needed for our stay to watch the dolphins. Room was clean. Big bed. Bed cover but no enclosed for dust mites. Nice service! Shuttle to the game for 15 bucks. U can also walk there. Everyone here is there to see the game to so great visiting with other people at the Bar... More

There doesn't seem to be a ton of hotels in the area, and I was just passing through, so I chose El Palacio. Just looking at the exterior, it did seem a bit dated, but inside was plenty clean and quiet. They appear to be doing some updates in the room so I can appreciate that there's some investment. Very... More

3 of us booked a room for the Dolphin Game, seeing some of the reviews we thought we would give it a shot since the location was great. This place was absolutely not worth the price they were charging, since it was a game weekend they inflated the cost to about $155, this place is work $60/night tops. The positive... More

I recently stayed at the El Palacio while in Miami to attend a Dolphin game. The staff was courteous and the room was clean. The property is close enough to the stadium to walk. I will stay again when in town to attend another game.
