This hotel is extremely dirty. The first day I seen two roaches. One in the shower. My third day I opened a roll of toilet tissue and about 20 roaches came out. They were running around the bathroom. I called the front desk and reported it. Know one even came to the room. I went to the front desk after... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night at the end of a stint of roadtripping down the east coast. The tents that I stayed in for the duration of the journey were significantly nicer than this hotel room. The bath was so grotty with limescale that it felt rough to the touch, all of the towels were stained brown (i... More

I got an extremely good deal on Priceline (about $50) so my review will not be based on price but general property qualities. This is what I got: a room with a fridge, two double queen beds, a balcony with tables and chair overlooking the pool, flat screen TV and direct beach access with parking accross the street which is...

I was nervous about staying here having read the reviews, but there was no need. I had a room with an ocean view, it was clean, comfortable and cleaned every day. The staff were always polite and helpful when I needed advice or help. I think it is good value for money, for a budget motel. The room was quite... More

We booked the hotel for 2 nights so that we could visit Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted to unfriendly and rude staff. When we arrived at the rooms one stunk of gas and the other smoke (despite requesting smoke free rooms). When we went back to the reception, before we could even finish our sentence explaining the problems, we... More

we stayed here for one night after flying into Miami, we want our night back. The room smelled of damp mildew, was very outdated i thought i was in the 60's judging by the decor. Staff were quite rude and looked like expecting a tip just for checking me in. Charging people $10 to park in a unsecure and uncovered... More

After having already booked this hotel online, and then coming to read the reviews (in that order) I was worried as to the cleanliness and comfortability of this property, however when I arrived I found a nice, clean hotel with a friendly(ish) staff that was willing to help when needed. The lobby was bright and clean, with lots to look... More

I have been visiting this hotel every year for the last 20+ years. When I was a child with my family, when I got married for my honeymoon and then with my 2 children and my family also. This last visit was cut short as we decided that we cannot stay here any more. Each year it has deteriorated and... More

As long as you do not go expecting an amazing 3/4 Star hotel (By UK standards) then you should be fine. I think previous reviews are very harsh. We booked through Virgin and it was by a good chunk the cheapest place in Miami, you can see why its cheap but in our opinion was one of the reasons why... More
