“More motel than some Hotels”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This Motel urns the name Bianco (white building) was also very clean even after years.
The manager is so nice and friendly that he offered us to eat even hours after breakfast. Before checking in I had seen that the price was lower on the internet and he offered me to go online for the reservation and the lower price. Awesome.
You can get free coffee, tea or water, some juicy fruit all day while relaxing on the patio.
If you are looking for great places to eat or something ells just ask the manager and he will surely recommend you a great place to go. Burger King across the hotel open till late.
Quit area, free parking at just 10 minutes or less from the centre of Miami (Bayside) by car.
Will come here again for sure.

Room Tip: Booking by internet is a lot cheaper than walkinn prices

The hotel is clean and the rooms are nice and clean, but quite small. Three of us were travelling, our son 13, and for all of us together the room was too small, with a tiny bathroom. The breakfast offered is very simple, but ok. The worst for us was that the rooms are right on Biscayne Blvd and in no way can you open any window, the noise is terrible. It's also out of town and compared we find the price too high.

We stayed at this motel all together for about 14 days. We liked it very much, the people there where very nice. For breakfast you get cornflakes, bagles, yam, donughts, coffee, juice, ...
We stayed at a room on the upper floor, and it was good so. Otherwise you have all the people from the yard in front of your room. You have a free parking slot and a burger king on the other side of the street. There are also 3 bus stations for going directly into downtown or to miami beach with two buses.
In february 2013 they started to refurbish every room. It looks great, but the "old" ones also does - so no problem which one you get.

Room Tip: Take one on the upper floor.

We stayed at this motel three nights during the spring break. The room was not that cheap, i guess we payed normal spring break prices. Our room was really tight and directly next to the laundry of the motel. At the the we left, we had to check out at 11am as normal. Our flight back to switzerland was on 8pm, so we asked if we can place our luggage for a few hours. The woman at the front desk was not able to organize it and was really not that friendly. One of the girls at the front desk spoke really bad english, she prefered to talk in Spanish.

We booked this trip 8 months in advance, We booked so far in advance because it was a holiday weekend and the International Boat Show in Miami. Most hotels were already booked. We paid a deposit and requested a courtyard room. When we got to the motel, they didn't have our reservation. They had no record of it. I gave the girl the print out of the confirmation and the deposit and she just didn;t seem to care that they lost our reservation. They stuff us in a room that was in the parking lot and faced the street. I asked to speak to a manager, which is not on the property and he told me they would comp us or change the room and if we didn't like it we could leave. We had no where to go given the busy weekend in Miami. We stayed the night. The room was gross. It smelled of cigarette smoke. Once of the reasons we choose this motel was because it was advertised as smoke free. The shower was not clean and the have no shampoo and conditioner. We left first thing in the morning. We didn't stay for breakfast, but my husband got us coffee and it was horrible!

Very clean hotel with a surprisingly comfortable bed. Good if you truly just need a place to sleep while in Miami. Be aware it is no frills--no hair dryer, no toiletries. Staff were adequate. They did offer breakfast--on the simple side. A good 15 minute drive from south beach so be aware of that as well.
