We stayed here in Oct '12. The location is great, which is the main selling point. Add the fact that there is a sitting area out front, which is great for people watching and just relaxing with a drink. A definite plus for them. There is also a restaurant (didn't eat there) and a small store downstairs which shares the patio I was speaking of.
We had a suite in the same building as the front desk. Our room was over the alley so we indeed heard the trash trucks early as well. As for the room itself, it was decent. For the price we paid (great by any standards, not just MIA), I was good with it. This by no means is an upscale place, but it was comfortable. Nice little kitchenette, futon, 5 piece kitchen set with tall chairs. The bathroom could have been a bit more "polished", literally and figuratively.
Jenny at the front desk was very helpful, allowed us to check-in early and upon check-out, leave our bags in a secured room as we had a late flight. They also provided towels in the lobby area to use for the beach.
Overall, cool place...depending on the price you get. Anything upwards of $200 a night...look elsewhere.
