Even though I only had to deal with the staff during the check in, it was very painful. Their staff was the most unfriendly and unhelpful people I have encountered among all the hotels in US. They gave me a smoking room when I requested non-smoking. We also had to move one more time because of the loud noises from... More

We stayed at the Palacio Sports Hotel the night of the Orange Bowl and had a very good time. We were slightly concerned with reviews about bugs, etc. and I am glad to report we saw none of this. There was plenty of staff on hand probably due to the Bowl game and the hotel being sold out, but we... More

Just returned from our 5th Anniversary trip from Michigan. Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and four days. If it had not been a package deal, we would have left and tried to upgrade at a Motel 6. Just a list... One site of Calder Racehorse Track - they didn't know anything about the races even though they spout... More

Management response:

The horse track is closed in October. We strongly disagree with this persons assesment of our Hotel. We attempted to resolve issues with this customer to no available. We do not believe any hotel could please this customer. We have thousands of happy customers. Please try us for yourself. Sincerely, David Ross Owner More

Definitely THE worst I've experienced. From the staff, the housekeeping, the room, and especially the restaraunt. Our first bad was the restaraunt and having to wait nearly 20 minutes before being acknowledged. The food wasn't bad, but the waiter is gone, you will not see him again. We also had a cockroach crawl up my girlfriend's leg and when she... More

We stopped overnight at this hotel to catch a baseball game at the nearby Dolphin Stadium. The reception, lounge, bar areas are all of a good standard. The sporting theme is evident throughout with large screens in the restauraunt showing different sports channels. Each table has a control box so you can select which screen you want to listen to...

Having never visited Miami, we chose a hotel that was close to the Florida Marlins Stadium. The El Palacio Sports Hotel was the choice. It is relatively close to the stadium and that is the only benefit. Upon arrival we were told that the shuttle service to the stadium had been terminated, even though it is posted in their brochure... More

I just returned from the "El Palacio" after staying for two nights consecutively. My company contracted a two day seminar there. Well it seems to me they must be doing something right!

Now thats what I call customer service! This hotel is just what we were looking for. It was Affordable, Neat, Clean, and Well Managed! Trust me, I reside in hotels over 60% out of a year; I've stayed in the best and unfortunately I've stayed in the worst. However, this hotel was to my satisfaction just upon my arrival. The... More
