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 The room smelled of damp mildew, was very outdated i thought i was in the 60's judging by the decor.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

I know this place is probably on the verge of being torn down but they could at least make sure the air is working in all of the rooms. We stayed two nights and mentioned to the front desk numerous times about the air not working properly in our room. A guy showed up once and checked to see if... More

If you're looking on staying steps away from the beach, blue ocean view, balconies rooms and clean beach for low price than this place is for you. I have stayed a few times and I been happy each time. Also its in a safe area, 20 minutes from downtown Miami, 15 minutes from south beach, 20 minutes from Hollywood beach.... More

I booked one night (6/20 - 6/21, 2014) at this hotel. I stayed here many years ago as a 14 year old and had such fond memories of this property. A lot has changed in 40 years. The hotel is in need of a complete renovation. The pool and spa were filthy, restaurant is also run down. The gentleman who... More

Smart hotel. Great beach location for Miami attractions. Close to the Sun life stadium as I was there to watch a match. Nice Hollywood style diner. Friendly staff. Although a taxi costs $50 to Bayside and downtown for Miami Heat and South Beach. Apparently there is a bus that costs a couple of dollars.

Disappointment and surprised with the lousy breakfast no option, and the moodiness of one of the attendants, and also with the cleanliness of the rooms. But overall, offsetting these negatives.

Having read many bad review, I've been left wondering why!! A wonderful place, great location and extremely helpful and friendly staff :) 185 street is out the way but with bus stop right outside the hotel and a cost of $2.25 its a doddle to get anywhere along Collins Ave. The guy at the desk Lionel was so friendly &...
