I recently stayed here in February 2012 for one night after a delightful Carnival Cruise. I booked this stay through Priceline, and had no idea how far it was from Downtown Miami or the Port of Miami. Our Priceline price was not cheap and for a hotel outside of Miami, I expected much more.
The hotel was (and I would presume still is) undergoing considerable renovations. There was construction equipment everywhere which was very unorganized and a potential safety hazard. The hallways were beyond freezing, with air conditioning levels like I've never felt. This being said, the room air conditioning seemed to barely work.
The actual door to the room was very difficult to open and the room itself was mediocre. This room was not worth $170, 150 or even 120 a night given it's current state. Perhaps after renovations it will be nicer.
