My friend and I booked this hotel for one night because it was very affordable and we just needed a place to stay before we headed out to Key West. We ended up returning to this hotel for another night at the end of the trip, so that should tell how we felt about the hotel.
Let me say that this is not a kind of place that you might imagine from the name "boutique hotel"... it's more like a prettied-up motel, but it was clean, had everything we needed, and (again) very affordable.
What we liked: Upon arrival, we were greeted by a super friendly staff and were allowed early check-in. Our room was at the far end of the building on the street side. The room had modern-pop decor and was clean. We were a bit worried about the noise that was mentioned in other travelers' reviews, but I slept just fine. My friend slept with ear plugs that were provided in the room, and he had one of the best night sleeps during the trip. I should mention that they had a great mattress! We both like our mattress to be on the firmer side, and it was perfect for us. Shower booth was very small, but clean and functional. Wi-fi worked ok. The breakfast in the courtyard was not fancy, but plenty. Free bottles of ice cold water was a nice plus.
Things to consider: The area around the hotel is shabby and there aren't much to do/see around the hotel. The hotel is far from the main beaches (8 miles, 20 min by car + time looking for a parking) and public transportation didn't sound all that convenient (Google map tells me it would take about an hour to Miami Beach).
Overall I recommend this hotel for one night stay (like us on the way to Key West, or in transit before the cruise), but if I were spending the entire vacation in Miami, I personally wouldn't want to commute to the beach every day.
