“Complete Dump. Please don't waste your money!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Picture this, Miami, August 31st... Arrived at MIA at 2:30pm, excited to start vacation and check out South Beach. Our excitement came to a screeching halt when we were passed by the free EMPTYhotel shuttle not once, but twice, driven by a man on a cell phone. We called the hotel desk and got an employee on the other line with scant English and an even poorer connection. I felt like I was talking to my grandmother through a 1960s rotary dial. The desk clerk said the shuttle couldn't have passed us yet and he'd be there "any time now". Any time now must have been Red Roof code for 90 MINUTES! 90 minutes can seem especially long anyway but it seemed like eternity in the 95 degree heat and 87 percent humidity. The hotel is close to the airport, true enough, so close in fact that we should have just walked. Flash forward to check in where 1 clerk is working at prime hours and you guessed it, scant English once again. We waited in a lobby full of people for another 45 minutes. When we finally receive our key we head to our room to find the floors unswept and sticky. Not a syrup spill sticky but a thick, shoe sucking, black grime, that screams "mop me"! I head to the bathroom and find 4, count 'em FOUR dead black flies on the floor and one pasted to the wall. To add insult to my dismay and disappointment, there are mounds of dust and hair in the corners and long black hairs surrounding the tub drain. This place could not have been touched in days, at least. As if this was not bad enough, there were green globby drops of Heaven only knows down the back of the door. After sachetting myself out of the bathroom (the door misses the toilet by 4 millimeters), I head back down to the front desk to report my findings. In addition to a detailed verbal description, I also provided pictures, which I can hopefully attach here as well. The desk clerk states they can send house keeping. SUPERB I think, and head via cab to South Beach. Fast fwd to late evening and the dust bunnies (and likely mites) have been scooted around the room, out of the corners, the grime and tar still intact but a little less abrasive and the flies now in the bathtub with the partially washed down hair... no more rooms available equals me sleeping fully clothed, socks and all with my husband, our 2 children and 3 pillows to share between us. The free breakfast they list is a JOKE and truly they should be embarrassed. They provide white bread, apples, and prepackaged muffins. The highlight was leaving for port Miami and I have never left a hotel so quickly. Should you book this room out of sheer torture to yourself and others, be sure to bring your room keys back to the desk with you. Hotels we typically stay in do not require the keys back so we left them in the room. The morning clerk said we had to have them and we needed to go and get them...it literally took me 10 minutes to explain we couldn't get back in to the room to retrieve them. You know that old saying, "nothing is free"? Red Roof Inn Miami is the epitome of that phrase. Free shuttle, but sweat to near dehydration while you wait. Free breakfast = prison food. Bottom line, you get what you pay for. Shame on me for buying in to the newly remodeled and award winning marketing scheme and shame on RRI for scamming people.

I enjoyed this place.It was my first time traveling by myself, and surprisingly it was very peaceful, considering its right by the airport. Also, the staff was real nice and there bilingual. It has no restaurant but it has a little convenient store located in the lobby.

I spent a night on reed roof with my group of foreign exchange students, the service is really, everything is really clean ,a room is not so expensive and is great because it is close to the airport, they have a really nice pool.
It's a great hotel to spend a short time.

We had a layover in Miami and decided to stay at this hotel, and I regret that decision. The staff were ok, not very warm or welcoming. The room was terrible! The a/c was cranked up so high I thought that I was going to freeze, and the toilet did not flush. Also the bed sheets were dirty which was quite disgusting. The elevator needs some renovations as it makes disturbing noises, and is dirty. Positive aspects are that the hotel was only 25 steps from a restaurant, and close to the airport. One could argue that the nearness of the airport is a negative because of the loud noises of airplanes flying by. Although it was cheap I will never choose this hotel again.

I am sorry to hear about your experience at the hotel. We do take pride in the good customer service our staff has given over the years. We will certainly make appropriate repairs to the Airconditioner ensuring that it is maintained at a suitable temperature for this climate. Hopefully, you will reconsider and stay with us again the next time you are in Miami.
Thank you.

My family had a wonderful experience staying at this hotel. As a member of a large group I commend Management John and Philbert for offering us such personal service. Very professional and I really admire the smooth handling of such a large group and mobilizing us from the airport to the port of Miami.
Our stay was home away from home and their staff is to be commended. The pool ,lobby and breakfast areas were kept clean. I actually felt safe with the presence of security patrolling the hotel.
I recommend this hotel for families and large groups. Thanks for a comfortable stay.

Our High School alumni association of over fifty guests booked with ease to this hotel. Booking agents were very personable, especially Martha. Management & staff made every effort to make our stay a fun and memorable one. Front desk staff were helpful and tried to meet our needs. Breakfast was a plus. I really liked the bagels and muffins individually wrapped meant a lot to me. Staff kept area clean and well stocked. Our rooms and amenities made us feel comfortable away from home. Great shuttle services. I recommend this hotel for large groups, you will get a personal service. A great value for your money.
