“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We have booked this motel for one night only so we didn't want to spend too much. We payed only 70$ for 2 persons. But once we got there we were surprised how nice our room was beacuse we expected the worst. It was nice, big and clean. You couldn't wish anything more. I would have stayed there even more then just 1 night. The location is ok, considering that everywhere you go in Miami you must go with the car. We went out at night and I didn't feel insecure for a bit. It's not Hilton but for this budget it perfect! It also has a free parking!! Recomended!

Room Tip: Book a room on the 1st floor not groundfloor!

Not worth a singly penny of what was spent.

I am very forgiving when it comes to hotels and motels, and not sure if other reviewers stayed here or if they were given a miracle room, but this place is terrifying. I will list points instead of rant and rave.

Not enough parking, had to park behind managers car.
No office or lobby, just a scary window on the driveway.
No bedside lamps
No sound isolation from other rooms or street (on US1)
No pillow covers, gross!
Room FILTHY, smelly, and old.
I saw a cockroach crawling into my suitcase
Bathroom awful
Beds springy with holes.

OKAY location, is bad neighbourhood, but close enough to nearby attractions without a 500$ + per night price tag. You get way you pay for, well...alot less, considering its not cheap!

Room Tip: All rooms are on the highway, we were on second floor, perhaps a bit less scary, but there is no ele...
