First of all, I do not find this property to be as terrible as described. My stay was pleasent and comfortable. I really paid $36.00 on travelocity hidden hotels. The shuttle was there in the time I was told, yes the rooms can use some touch ups, cleaning could be slightly better, but for the price paid, I believe the... More

I've been in hotels and hostels all over the world but this hotel is just lame. Understaffed, that should tell you how clean the bed sheets could be. The room has an odor of old ciggarette. They charge you $8 per day for parking and a MANDATORY $2 fee for the safe, which they charge regardless you use or not.... More

I got a room on hotwire for 48$ per night. After i found out the name of the hotel and went to see the reviews i got scared! Turns out it was nothing to worry about: the lobby is nice, but the rooms are very basic, yet clean and functional. Rooms has somewhat ugly furniture but has been renovated somewhat... More

Stayed for one night and never again! The staff is not very friendly or pleasant. Totally would not recommend this place. I think booking at another place would be a better option. At this place, you get what you pay for.

We booked this hotel in a package with Expedia. I checked out the reviews and read that generally it wasn't a great hotel but was OK for one night. Not looking for anything special, it seemed like that would work. The price included free wifi (SUPER SLOW AND NOT IN THE ROOM), free airport shuttle (STOPS AT 10 PM AND... More

I travel a lot for work and I have stayed in 5 star resorts in various locations...when I travel personally I do not require much and usually go for the regular or low fair hotels so I have stayed at both ends of the spectrum. Granted this place needs to be updated and some serious Reno money invested, but at... More

Just returned from a three day weekend in Miami. The staff at the hotel were some of the most helpful I have ever I encountered. I wanted to set up a tour for Saturday. Alexis, one of the night staff, spent over 30 minutes with me reviewing the tour options, helping select a tour and then printed out my itinerary.... More

If all you need to do is spend the night and not shower than it's okay in a pinch but the parking lot smelled like urine and felt unsafe at night. It is close to Coral Gables. I felt like Jack Nicholson was going to peep out around the corner...it was very spooky, deserted and dirty.

It is the worst hotel in the city of Miami....rust everywhere....the non smoking rooms smell like smoke and mold....the ac was turned up to 50 degrees and it felt like it was in Alaska and it is done to mask the odor of the growing mold...don't think you will rest well because you will feel the springs and hear them...

My night started with the hotel shuttle taking over an hour to pick me up from the airport. To checking into a disgusting room that was dirty and rust just about everywhere. The light bulbs in half of the lamps in the room were blown out. The comforter on the bed was stained. The bathroom floor was black the toilet... More
