Stayed 4 nights. YIKES!!first little disclaimer: not a complainer... especially in beautiful south beach where the hotel or room shouldn't be a big deal because you should be outside enjoying everything MIA has to offer. That being said, the following is sort of an FYI. First impression was HORRIBLY filthy carpet once we stepped off onto the 5th floor, which unfortunately continued into our room. tattered, grimy Venetian blinds in the bathroom(btw guys...these are replaceable for $2) , broken up tiles, crappy grout job. the bathroom had no ventilation, but again I'm a innovator, I went to open the window...alas it was broken and wouldn't release the stagnant steam bath. Cool, I politely used my shave gel can to prop the window open...until it fell out the window to the balcony below of room 409. Staff was helpful...got my can back, needed it for dear life so we could air that bathroom out! Tub was stopped up, took 45 min/ shower to drain. Poor husband was second in line, had to shower ankle deep in my old water...what a love, he never complained either. We found a pacifier under the bed on our second night( no babies here!) So clearly cleanliness is an issue.
Bed was hard, and super duper loud and creaky. Basically everything is Just very old, very much in need of some updates. Great value if you aren't spending the day in your room.
Little spot across the street, Catalina had great cocktails, and the bistro next door to that was open 24/7 for great late night eats. Central location, great beach access. Pool is clean, but pool deck not so much. tiki bar ok food, staff was always friendly.
Will I stay here again? Not likely, will cough up the few extra bucks and go someplace nicer.
On a budget, or spring break? Then you'll make this place work.
