OK....the last time I stayed in the Coral Gables area I stayed at the Miami Best Hotel. I wrote a review and said I was going to stay elsewhere the next time I returned to Coral Gables. So, I went to Expedia, and found the Roadway Inn at a good price (for the S. Miami area). I booked it and... More

What a weird a hotel. I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and all I can is how weird it was overall. The room with two double beds was freezing, the floors were dirty and the beds randomly arranged on the walls instead of in front of the back splash . We managed to switch off the out-dated AC...

- Overall is a good value, decent / not fancy room, cheap for Miami December, and good location for South Miami. - Very bad breakfast, (better don't count on it). Reception is not really helpful are trying to do absolute minimum. View from the room straight on the wall of adjacent building (2 yards) don't count on it.

No place to eat right around hotel, but the Sunset Place mall is about three blocks away across super-busy US Highway One, be careful crossing. Surprised my room had... More

We booked two nights over Christmas break through Hotwire.com. We moved out after only one night. This is the worst hotel that we have ever stayed in. The building is very old, everything is worn-out, the pool is dirty (nobody was using it), the room has a heavy stench of mold, there are cracks in the floor, the faucet in... More

I made a reservation for three people and pay for it in advanced. I specifically requested two beds in the room since we were three. When we got to the hotel, late at night, they gave us a one king size bed room. I asked the person at the front desk to change us since our room was supposed to... More
