This hotel is in a safe neighborhood within walking distance to movies, restaurants, and most of the stores you'd want to visit. Any other stores are just a short drive away. Ice skating rink a few miles away. Centrally located for all the standard Miami-area tourist things like the zoo and Seaquarium. Breakfast buffet is superb -- wide variety of items to please everyone. Clean, comfortable. A really awesome place, right off the Turnpike. I highly recommend it.
