As others have said, this hotel is extremely basic. It's crazy convenient to downtown AA Arena, MIA, and only about 10-15 minutes from the beach... depending on trafic. There's a Starbucks, Publix, 24hr Walgreens & CVS within walking distance [if you like to walk] & about 2-3 minutes drive. Lots of fast food too. I'm in Miami often & needed a safe, CLEAN place in the middle of our activities until our other accommodations were available.... we decided to come in early, but didn't want to spend too much more vacay money on hotels. It met all of our needs. You're not going to get any pampering at this hotel, but you will get a nice, clean place to sleep, bathe & eat. That was big for us. The rooms are set up like older apartments. There are 2 levels & when you open the hotel room door, you're outside. The room is no frills, but good. Great closet space for a room that size. The only thing is we didn't have a dishwasher or dish soap. Not sure if it was an oversight, or if we needed to bring our own. We didn't bother. We were only there 2 nights. You need your room key to access the parking. It's just a horizontal gate bar & people can walk in. It's probably more to keep others from parking illegally than to protect your car. However, it would deter random parking from outsiders & that's always a plus. My only issue was with the internet. I'm used to being at hotels with FREE wi-fi & they charge a $5 one-time fee for your whole stay. I was never albe to access the wi-fi. My computer never found the access point. It only saw other computer to computer connections. I was expecting to select an access point & then enter a password of some sort if necessary. I'm probably not technology-saavy enough to figure it out. They give you a wi-fi password that supposedly renews each week. There's also a tech number to call if you have problems connecting. Again, we didn't bother. I'd stay there again if I need a cheap, clean, convenient, and safe place to sleep while I'm in town for a short period.
