I've stayed here multiple times when I travel to Miami for business. I picked it because of it's location and proximity to the Miami-Dade Building Department, and ease of access to the Turnpike. The rate was about average for Miami, the room I would consider above average for the price. Had a nice 3rd floor room overlooking the pool area which was very nice and surprisingly quiet considering the proximity to the road. There was a strip mall directly behind the hotel that had some restaurants and a Publix supermarket which came in very handy. Plenty of restaurants close by with minimum drive time. Depending on which way you went into the city it will take you approx. 30-45 minutes on a fair day. I stopped staying at this location after I found out Choice Hotels opened a Cambria Inn and Suites in Dania Beach. It's about 20 minutes further away if you take the turnpike, but if you are looking for an area less congested I would recommend there. If need be though I would return depending on circumstances mostly if I had to drive any further south to get to the job sites.
