Spent a few days here before Christmas and was expecting a horrific experience after reading some reviews. Pros: * Excellent Location - It is very close to a Metrorail station and only 1 stop from Dadeland Mall. * Front desk staff was friendly - Staff helped us find places to eat an gave information about attractions in the area which...

I have stayed in one American hotel that was *filthier* and that was in Manhattan. Best Hoetl Miami wins the worst ever award, however, because they are completely unapologetic. Our first night the mattress, which had been filleted like a fish, had a 6 inch steel post and springs poking out which cut our legs. The service person at the... More

They hook you with nice pics on the website and a great rate, which is not true! Not only the property is hard to find, no signage, it is disgusting. Dirty, horrible rooms they couldn't pay you to stay in. One single old sheet in the bed, no toilet paper, the phone and tv didn't work. But behold, the safe... More

We stayed here overnight, because we were going on a cruise the next day. The shuttle from Miami International Airport, was a nice new vehicle and the driver was very amenable which made the drive pleasant. When we got to the reception, the first thing that was pointed out to us was a surcharge for the use of an electronic... More

Needed an emergency place for a funeral near Pinecrest or Dadeland. This was the least expensive and just off Dixie Highway, so I know I could find it. Well finding it was complicated. Even directions from my IPhone only got me close but accurate.--OK--now there is a $2.00 charge for a safe in your room. (Don't you think they would... More

I'm originally from Miami Beach and needed a place to crash a few nights visiting friends. Found this place on orbitz for only $50 a night and started reading reviews. I almost didn't book because of them. But then I started to think about the comments and the price. Here's the deal. Miami is one of the very expensive places... More

We stayed in March of 2014 as part of a wedding party. After two failed attempts at getting a very "reasonable", not snobby by any means, "room", one without fresh cigarette smoke, we settled into a room. First things we noticed were (a) 1985 TV, (b) windows that were bolted shut (which after three demon-haunted, terror-filled nights we postulated was... More

The room we got looked rather old and there was some water leakage when we got in. We stayed for a night, but definitely not good enough to be considered a 3 star hotel. The lobby looked attractive though, sadly can't say the same thing about the room
