“Front desk is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

Michelle at the front desk did all she could to make my stay perfect. Very grateful
Wifi was a bit slow but I believe there were many people in the hotel. I stayed 2 nights and had a restful stay. I stayed here years ago and was pleasantly surprised it was still as good. If the front desk wasn't so great I doubt it would have been as good. I would stay again for sure

Hotel is located in a great area, taxi's are called immediately when requested and arrive in about five minutes. Beautiful area to relax in by the pool if traveling with young children. Jenny at the front desk is multi talented, Check's in customers while picking up the telephone and doesn't miss greeting a guest walking in through the door. She explains at check In her hours at work if by an chance you need to speak with her and recommended Billy if we had any further questions. The hotel is a great example of textbook service.

Billy, Jane, and MIchelle in reception were outstanding. The hotel is clean and staff are all friendly and helpful. Well located along US 1 for shopping at DAdeland Mall or to go to Key Biscayner, Bayside, Port of Miami, Coconut Grove, the Keys or Fort Lauderdale, and from to the airport. The pool is well kept and the breakfast staff are kind. There is a convinient store and ample parking. We liked it very much.

Room Tip: ask for a pool view room

This hotel is one of the better finds of our 3 week road trip in the U.S. The room was palatable, amenities including a better than average fitness centre, gorgeous outdoor pool give real value for money.

Above all however is the fantastic service offered and in my case it was a delightful lady called Moira which provided me with not only excellent service in administering my stay there but also helped out extensively in providing advice, information and her own personal insights about what to do and enjoy in Miami. Highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed for one night at the Holiday Inn Coral Gables in August 2014. This is an older building that has been cosmetically updated and looks very nice. My room was spacious, clean, and had a balcony overlooking the pool. A very good value for $149. The staff was pleasant and efficient. My only complaint was the cleanliness of the pool. While it looked nice and inviting, once I entered the water I was surrounded by floating bugs and human hair. It looked like the skimmer filter does not work or is not adequate. Kinda grossed me out.

Room Tip: Room 239 overlooks the pool and has balcony.
