I do not understand the bad reviews for this hotel? If you read the Travel Advisor reviews, they are spot-on truthful. This is a BUDGET hotel for a Miami-budget price. My 5 stars are for the BUDGET category. $150 (includes expensive daily hotel tax) is a GOOD rate during the boat show/Sobe Food & Wine Festival/Obama visit. It's a $25 taxi ride to and from ($50 total) to get to beautiful South Beach. Their newly decorated breakfast area is lovely. Breakfast is cofee, cereal, toast. No eggs or waffles or yogurt. Coffee is OK and beds are comfortable. I'll add pics when I get home. ****** oh, The shuttle service is NOT free ******** I told them I'll make that clear because several booking sites are advertising a free shuttle for them. They have a $10 (more than 1 person) to $15 (single passenger) shuttle service to airport. The employees at this hotel are VERY NICE. The shuttle driver went way out if his way to rush me to South Beach for a deadline. Then he delivered my bag to the hotel. We will stay there again simply for the nice stafff. The bus stop is across the street (1 minute) and a $2 fee + 50 min bus ride delivers you to a wonderful mall!! Hubby and I spent a full rainy day there. Lovely sushi restaurant upstairs and GREAT shopping. Every store you love is there. If you love espresso....Sur La Table is serving gorgeous complimentary ones (new brand of technology). Back to the hotel......the shower is like a sprinkle. It's completely fine for budget, but you may yell out if someone in another hotel room flushes a toilet and you lose cold water for a few seconds. Also, our room didn't have an electric plug in bathroom. No biggie for me, but I know that some people need their bathroom routine. Ot's an old hotel and you should expect that
if you book. Please don't stay there and then trash them for finding a hair. That is truly not a clutch-your-pearls moment.
