“If you're an adventurer on a budget, this is THE place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Leamington has great charm and a top notch staff. Manager Franz Fernandez practically bent over backwards for our requests and every staff member was pleasant, very hospitable, and professional. Our room, though a bit sparse in accomodation, was kept very clean by the housekeeping staff. The Leamington is a very old hotel, being established in the 20's, but that actually worked in the hotel's favor in my opinion. I'll be looking to book here in the future when I'm in town on business, and would recommend it to my friends as well.

Hotel is average only. Break fast is included. But very minimal varieties only. Corridor is very stinking and the stairs were too with bad smell. Air condition is good and so sleeping is of no problem. Doors, locks, etc were very old and you have to struggle locking or opening them. Lift is available, but only during certain hours. Wifi is available. If you stay for 1 or 2 nights, this hotel should be OK.

I had a reservation Dec 2012. First, the hotel in a questionable area, prostitutes and homeless hanging out around the hotel. Second, the walls in the hotel lobby were dirty, and a disgusting smell along with crumbs on front desk. Third, the sheets in the room were stained, upon trying to open the window, the curtains fell off, the bathtub had mold and there was trash on the floor. My husband and I were in the room for all of 5 minutes. We walked down to the front desk and asked for a full refund, We ended up staying at the holiday inn across the street. I ended up paying a lot more there. However, it was totally worth it as safety and cleanliness are a must. This hotel should be condemned by the city and be closed IMMEDIATELY. I urge other travels not to waste their times in this $h*+ hole.

Absolutely the worst place we have EVER stayed. Expected it to be older, however, didn't expect the manual elevator that you had to wait 20 minutes for before you were picked up. Didn't expect th train to be right outside our window that ran every 10 minutes, so we didn't sleep at all. Water in the shower was luke warm at best, and when you could stand to be in the shower the black from the dirty carpet ran off of our feet. The "complimentary breakfast" consisted of dry white toast. I would seriously sleep outside on the sidewalk for free before I would pay to stay here again. I am demanding my money back-not sure it will happen since conveniently there was not a manager available to talk to! Any of the web sites should be ashamed to advertise this Hotel.

Do not stay here!!!
This is an old hotel and very rundown, where things go walk about.
Clothes disappeared, sent emails to them inquiring about lost items and did not hear from them even though they claimed that they did respond.
Ended up ringing them also with no results, so then went back to the hotel to try and locate my clothes, but all to no avail.
Not at all happy.
Front desk lady, Kiara, was the only good thing about this place.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room on the west side of the building as all you will hear is the next door's...

we wanted a hotel that was close to the port of miami and downtown but not spend an arm and a leg. the pictures we saw online weren't that bad. we didn't look at these pictures here regretfully. we regret our decision. we couldn't find anywhere to park to start with. the lady who checked us in at the front desk was very nice and the front looked decent. then we got into the elevator and went to our room. the elevator was very 1930's, but we said ok an adventure. but we walked in our room, it was smelly and OLD!!!! the paint on walls is all chipped, there's only hot water with very poor water pressure, the carpet's nasty and ripped. the bathroom came with NO TOWELS!!!!! no internet, tv gave us 13 channels, only 8 worked. how hard is it to keep a hotel up to clean standards. this place should be shut down for heavy remodeling. it shouldn't even allow anybody to stay here. they should be embarrassed. it's the worst hotel we've ever ever stayed in. it's next to the transit, inner loop and is SO LOUD! walls are so thin you can hear everything. please spend the few extra bucks to stay elsewhere. we would have done that if we weren't here for just one night and leaving on an amazing cruise the next day!
