Stayed here two nights on a Travelzoo deal. Access to the hotel involves parking temporarily in front of the hotel and dragging your luggage up about ten stairs into the lobby. The hotel charges $22 per day for off-street parking. However there is a municipal parking lot across the street where you can park from 8am to 6pm for $10, with no charge to park overnight. The elevator is old and slow. Our room was large, and the mattress comfortable, if old. The bedside lights provide plenty of light for reading, which is most unusual these days. The two chairs in the room were uncomfortable. The air conditioning was effective. The plumbing is old and very noisy, particularly bothersome at night. The breakfast buffet is expensive for its content, although the scrambled eggs were better than one finds at hotels providing free buffet breakfasts. There was no decaf coffee available sadly!
This hotel is quite a ways north of South Beach, so if enjoying the nightlife is your goal, look for a hotel a few miles further south. On the other hand, access to a lovely beach is just across the street past the parking lot. A few blocks north on the boardwalk is a delightful tiki bar operated Carrabbas.
