My husband and I are not picky, we usually camp, so any hotel is pretty luxurious. This hotel, however, is just too much. It is right in the beach, so we spent most of our time there, which was great. The whole hotel, hallways, rooms smelled pretty bad. It was dirty and outdated. The showers barely work. The walls are... More

Bad hotel Crapy rooms Old TV from the 80's that you had to band on the side so it would work. Badly cleaned Worst breakfast I've ever experienced. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Don't think this hotel has been redecorated since it's opening.

We came here after spending two weeks in Orlando, we had booked an extra four nights in Miami as a 'wind down' to our manic holiday in Orlando. Basically we just used the hotel for what we needed it for, a place to rest our heads on a night. The hotel itself was very dated, but when you're hardly in... More

After trying to check into the hotel without AC in the lobby.....they wouldn't let us do an early check in at all? Did I mention that they do not have a computer system so it's all paper! They used a calculator to add up our charges! When we finally got into the room....it was even worse! No individual AC control,... More

Beach location is the only good thing I have to say about this place. They still use 1980's method for reservations and billing.. Lobby didn't have air conditioning and rooms reminded me of the 80's. Only staying here 2 days which is 2 to many, will tough it out! Get what you pay for!

Pulling into the motel to check in was fun, finally found a corner and was met by the valet saying only parking here is valet and told it is $14 or can park across the street at $10 and no light or crosswalk to get back. OK valet parking. Check in went smooth I had reserved a King bed, smoking... More

It's not a 50's themed hotel, IT IS a 50's motel that has not been maintained since it was built. The bath tub was chipped, shower curtain (what hotel still use these?!) was ripped, the shower dripped constantly and the fridge was so loud it sounded like a Hoover. The car park is over a very busy road that was... More

Got back home today (30th May) from a 5 day holiday (vacation) in sunny Miami. Great hotel to stay in if you want a fantastic view of the beach and so would highly recommend a beach view room. The hotel itself is a bit dated, and could do with a fresh lick of paint and/or modernising a tad. Can't complain... More

We spent 2 nights here before driving up to Orlando for our main holiday. The place is one of the last remaining small intimate hotels as all around is being taken over by high rise hotels. The beach was a 30 second walk away and is absolutely stunning. The facilities however are very basic and dates but don't let that... More
