I felt the rooms were ok but to not have any housekeeping for 3 days is a bit crazy. When we left for the day (around 1-2 pm) i made sure to tell the housekeepers on my floor that we are now leaving for the day "please make up the room". she nodded yes but when we got back nothing... More

The hotel was basic. The only thing different about this hotel then other "cheap" hotels was the beds. The beds was surper comfy. The room that i was in had roaches. And the hotel building light turned off twice and it took an hour for them to turn back on both times. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE !

The hotel is dated and not well kept. But I could live with that, as long as the place is clean and staff is friendly. Definitely not the case here, I tried to check in early and staff was rude about, so I sat in the lobby waiting for a room, and asked them to let know once rooms were... More

We had a room with a jacuzzi tub and patio facing the pool. Room was very comfortable and clean. The pool is beautiful at night. The only complaint is that the A/C unit in the room is noisy. But I would definitely stay there again. Nice weekend getaway spot!

Very un personable you didn't feel like a guest but just a number for profit. Breakfast was like being herded like cattle for feeding. Had to pay extra for hospitality, which was nonexistent. Totally not worth the money to stay here.... Very disappointed....

Next to the Dolphins stadium - that the claim to fame, and to the racing/betting arena. Not the reason I stayed, a friend recommended the hotel. Linens on the bed had not been changed. The sink was stopped up - had water standing in it. Repeated requests got a kind response, but no answer. The hotel seems to attract a... More

We had a really great stay! Walking distance to SunLife Stadium made it even better. The hotel has a comfortable and traditional feel, the rooms are clean and updated, and the staff is super nice, very attentive and accommodating. Victoria is an excellent manager and provided us top-notch guest services. Breakfast in the morning on the upper floor was a... More

Hello and thank you for the review. The hotel apologizes for the above issues. I want to start by saying that Life in Color at the hotel is a sold out event. We do everything in our power to control the issues with the elevators however the kids over load them with too many occupants. This happened several times that... More

We went down for the Miami/Pats game. This was a fun place they had music outside in the parking lot and served beer and food (you pay). Got to meet fans from both sides. Hotel is not the newest but our room was nice and clean with a little patio overlooking the pool.
