This hotel is a joke. For starters the room we got had no lock on the screen door, only a chain preventing it from opening all the way. The hotel staff tried to convince us that the chain was sufficient, but since my husband wouldn't budge they checked a few other rooms. Would you believe the screen door in the... More

There is room for improvement in this hotel but the present condition is totally unacceptable. The scent of the hallway and the rooms was not quite pleasant at all. For what it's worth, the location is great and some of the staff are quite welcoming.

Where do I begin? Well, when we first arrived there were police cars everywhere! The room as a decent size along with the bathroom but the toilet overflowed constantly, we waited over an hour for the front desk to clean up the mess. I will say the staff at this hotel were VERY helpful and kind but the place is... More

The room was very nice, on the first floor, very quiet and clean. The next morning I had breakfast in their restaurant the food and... More

First off, we had a hard time finding the hotel and when I tried calling their number, I was greeted with an automated message telling me to press 0 for someone to help me and then I get disconnected. We were tired and just wanted to sleep. After several more attempts to reach someone, I finally talked someone who had... More

The golden glades is a nice hotel when you want to close to it all. I was only 15 minutes from the beach and about 30 minutes from airport. I went to visit my Grandmother who lives in miami and she met me there. I stayed in 1st floor close to the lobby since I have a walking condition. I... More

The name has changed so travelers beware. The new name is Golden Glades Inn and Conference Center. This was without a doubt the nastiest place I have ever seen. No one had EVER cleaned the room or the bathroom The "clean" towels were filthy, I requested a room change 3 different times and each time was refused. The staff could... More

I stayed with my children, 9 and 10 before a cruise out of Port of Miami. It took and hour and a half from the airport to get to this hotel, and it was far from worth the drive. I paid in advance for that night and the night following our return, and I got my money back for the... More

Stayed here for one night before heading off to Orlando. Checked in around 6pm. Firstly trying to turn into the hotel is a nightmare, the entrance is just around the corner on a very busy street, and if you miss it, good luck trying to turn around and get to it again. Secondly the elevator stated that it had a... More
