Now to put this review in perspective I have rated it 5 stars as it is important to take into context the available options in the Miami area. This location is excellent as it is close to lots of eating options both fast food and medium grade eateries and pubs. There are lots of small malls nearby and the larger Dolphin, Dadeland and others are a short drive away. For me the five star was easier to award as I use a rental car in Miami so South Beach, all the malls and high scale restaurants are all 10-20 mins away from this hotel due to its relatively central location. It is clean and the property is well taken care of and the room comfort and ambiance to me far exceeded the price I paid. To be honest I have had far worse for much more cost in MIA. In this case it was not just a comparative assessment here, it was simply a very satisfying room, of adequate size for two persons and just what we needed as we were there not to stay in a hotel room for the entire day, we made use to of the nearby attractions and were out and about to only return to a comfortable, peaceful and clean room. The pillows and bed/bedding were excellent. Staff were friendly and professional. Parking was sufficient as even though the front parking was always full we opted for the back and there was always available space. Please note my title said "expectations" this means that I do not expect continental breakfast at Holiday Inn Express to be a banger and it is not here as in all others I have stayed in. But it is sufficient and decent, not great and not grounds to lose a star; if you could lose a half star I would maybe put 4.5 for this reason but it is trivial as you know what to expect in any hotel of this bracket for breakfast. All in all, this hotel is a winner in the overpriced region of hotels that are so prevalent in MIA and environs, if they aren't overpriced they are shoddy but this shows you can get a very good and enjoyable stay for an affordable price. It sure beats my experiences in South Beach and other parts of MIA many times, I will stay here from no on whenever I return to MIA!
