“I died and went to the devil's playground”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Manual elevator, really hot, rude or unhappy staff, bad stairs, smallest rooms ever, creepy atmosphere...and they asked why I wanted a refund?!? Are you kidding me? This place is the lowest of the low in downtown Miami. The only reason I would ever stay here is if my car was set on fire and I couldn't walk to a different hotel. This place is not even up to standards with what a brothel hotel could set for it's guests. Please don't even bring a woman to this hotel, it would make you look lower than scum. Needless to say, although I did not see any bed bugs, this hotel was nasty and disgusting and I left within 12 minutes flat. I still had to pay the 25 bucks for overnight parking down the block and freaked out in the morning when it was closed for the day (it was sunday morning). Please go a few minutes down the road to the Courtyard Marriott hotel.

Slumlord run with no reinvestment back into this dump in 75 years. Should be condemned.

Would make a good set for Saw 5. We stayed here for the Miami boat show. Just across the street. Very depressing to discover that the oldest bar in Miami, Tobacco Road is being torn down, but creepy places like this stay? Ugh....won't be back! Never!

Room Tip: Bring 4 sticks. One to hold the door closed, one to scare off the bums outside, one to scrape the ru...

For the price, Leamington Hotel is still a horrible choice! Unless you are desperate or single and don't mind the "boarding" house feel, STAY AWAY!! Location is right downtown by the cruise ship pier, which is good, if you don't mind staying in the ghetto!! I was terrified in this hotel. We paid for the night but only ended up staying for about 20 minutes. The elevator is terrifying, the beds are old, as are the rooms! Dirty and dangerous. I didn't feel safe here at all, especially with a child! USE CAUTION!!!

Front desk staff neither pleasant nor rude, just matter of factly. We were given room on third floor that overlooks an elevated train that was noisy even at night, good thing (or maybe not) the working window air conditioner drowned noise. Room and bathroom was spartan and you can tell that housekeeping tried to keep it presentable but the age of the bldg. is showing through. No hot water when I took a shower. Nice elevator but needed someone to run it. Breakfast the next day was toast and coffee with blueberry and corn bread that was a little dry. Nice location. Good price if you stay for just one night. It would not hurt if staff was friendlier to make up for bad reviews of hotel though elevator guy was friendly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

My family of four had two adjoining rooms with a bed for each of us. It is a bare bones hotel that has every basic need to stay. The basic needs are taken care of in a perfectly fine way. The front desk clerk was pleasant & efficient, the elevator guy was cute & very courteous. The fact that they have an old operating elevator is pretty cool & even better someone who dashes over to use it to take to the floor. I have stayed in a lot worse rooms but this hotel, while old, was very clean. The beds were comfy & the elevator/bell guy brought up extra pillows because I just had ankle surgery. There's no decor but it doesn't matter, you are here to sleep & shower in a clean room. All of these needs were met, so I will give them a very good review. The staff cares about this hotel & it's customers. Free wifi is good too. Thank you!

Cons:

- Bathroom door wouldn't close and would swing wide open
- Window was bolted closed and air conditioning was terrible so we would be way to hot to sleep
- Elevator was so old someone had to manually wheel it up and down
- Elevator is closed between 00:00 and 05:00
- Room was aesthetically terrible (Walls falling apart, stains everywhere, etc)
- Far from the beach (Impossible to walk, Taxi was $20+tips one way)
- We were there for 3 days and didn't have our room cleaned once

Pros:

- Staff were friendly and helpful (Got a free travel adapter from the receptionist as I brought the wrong type of plug)
- Free shuttle to the port (Was going on a cruise, so this was actually the reason we booked this hotel. Don't. Pay for a taxi)
- Free wi-fi and breakfast (Practically a given everywhere, though)
