Ask me if I would stay here again, I would have to seriously think twice about it. Our phone did not work the 4 days we were there. We found a french fry beside the bed. Then to top it off we had a roach crawling on the headboard......There were young adults partying next to us so we were unable... More

I stayed at this hotel while visiting family. Miami is not a cheap place, even the older hotels are charging more for rooms. That said, I was happy to find this place for under $100 each night. To start, this hotel is ok for a short leisure trip, but I would not recommend it for business travelers. The hotel is... More

The El Palacio hotel was above and beyond my expectations. The staff is very professional and the rooms are in excellent condition; not to mention the fabulous view of Calder Race Course. I would recommend any visitors of the area to stay with this hotel, you won't be dissapointed.

What a stay! It was awesome! The staff treated my family like royalty. Every staff member that we came across had a smile on their face. We had a large family of 75 that was attending a wedding and had free time on our hands, the front desk staff offered suggestions of places to go to and local events in... More

I natural searched Miami Hotels and found this one because I am the consumate sports fan. This funky hotel that blends classic grecian statues and columns and gazillions of sports pix and memorabilia was an unusally pleasant surprise to me. All the sports stuff was great, especially in the sports bar. But what made this hotel memorable was the staff.... More

This is Great Place, we were suprised to find a hotel of this caliber at the price we paid. Quality, Value and Affordable. Friendly staff and super clean. Location is next... More

This former Holiday Inn hotel leaves a lot to be desired. It seems that Holiday Inn sold the property to new owners and they have since done nothing to improve the function, quality, amenities, or value. It has been tastelessly decorated and otherwise left in disrepair. The website and general first impressions with all of the faux-marble statues and fountains,... More

After seeing mediocre pictures and reading mixed reviews, I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The hotel is clean, with a lovely view (depending on what side and floor your staying). The staff was very hospitable and informative. The pool and mini-golf was also a plus for a "day-in" activity. Right off the major highway- only 15 mins from South Beach... More
