Overall it was a simple hotel with some nice little touches. The staff was nice. The room was not super awesome but not bad. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay and if you're not going to hanging out in the hotel room all day then this is a good place to stay.
My only compliant is the size of the bathroom and how the shower area was designed. If you're not careful when taking a shower you can end up with a lot of water on the bathroom floor. The hallways, at least on the second floor where I was, were dark blue and the lighting was poor. Their free continental breakfast is very simple with toast, cereal, fruit, juice and coffee, but you can order bigger breakfasts as well.
My 4 night/5 day trip was good for staying at this hotel. For the location I am overall pleased.
They charge a $15 resort fee per day that gives you 2 free happy hour drinks between 5-7PM, the wireless internet password, and access to use of beach towels and chairs.
There isn't any on property parking, but there is a city parking garage at 13th St. and Collins Ave. that is about a block and a half away, which isn't a far walk. The cost is $20 for 24 hours of parking. They also offer valet parking but I didn't use their service.
