I made a last minute reservation to attend a conference in Miami Beach, and this was one of the few reasonable properties available on Travelocity. I think the travel services should de-list it.
The place was clearly run down, but I did not have time to change rooms the first night. Front desk is unhelpful at best, if there is anyone there at all.
The place looks like it is ready to be demolished, and probably should be. The only working light fixture was the one overhead light, which was full of dead bugs. Air-conditioning was making noise, but basically non-functional. Water damage all over the room.
There was a two inch gap under the door, where just about any small vermin could slip in. In the middle of the night, larger vermin, who, apparently had a key, tried to come in. Fortunately, I had slid the bolt. I did not sleep the rest of the night.
The bed was broken, and the mattress was worn out. Surprisingly, I did not find any bed bugs under it. (I would have slept in the car.)
Frankly, I would not kennel my dog in the place. Spend the extra $50/night and stay somewhere, anywhere else.
