If you're the usual Miami tourist looking to hit the beaches, this might not be the best location for you. But if you need to stay in this specific area (Coral Gables, University of Miami, etc.), it's a great value for your money. I booked early and got an advanced rate. Let let me tell you, I have paid a lot more for a lot less in Miami. The staff were all incredibly friendly. The room was clean, with a large King bed, even a balcony overlooking a nice view of the pool. Check-in was a breeze, and check-out could literally not have been easier. At check-in, they even offered a complimentary (and delicious) mojito at the bar later. And while I was embarrassed I did not stay to order another drink (just took my freebie and left), the bartender was extremely nice. But again, EVERYBODY was nice. I have to book an affordable hotel once a month in this area, and this will definitely be my hotel from now on. It was simply a relaxing, refreshing experience.
