Good Hotel: a solid 3 stars, some good some bad but overall a good stay. PROS: BED: very comfortable new king size bed, slept great. RESTAURANT: ate dinner here, was a little apprehensive as it didn't appear that good, looked dated and only 3 other people inside but we decided to give it a try and were pleasantly surprised. We were there on a Tues so they had a dinner special for $25 which included a flank steak (8 oz) with rice or mashed potatos, and fresh steamed veggies, + soup or salad + glass of house wine + dessert (key lime pie or cheese cake) The dinner was very good, tender steak, great service. I can't remember the name of our server but he was a young Cuban(guess) male, very friendly and great server. LOBBY: great looking spacious lobby. WiFi: fast WiFi. LOCATION: The beach and a nice board walk are right behind the hotel, you can walk for miles on the board walk. There is a Walgreens only 2 blocks away, west on 41st ST just over the canal bridge, we bought water, wine, snacks. Do not go to the liquor stores near the beach on Collins Street as the prices are double of Walgreens...rip-off. ROOM: was clean, some holes and wear showing in the carpet, no underlay on the carpet so hard floor. TOWELS: high quality towels and lots of them. CONS: showing its age, small bathroom with zero counter space only a 4 inch shelf above the sink, crappy push button soap and shampoo dispenser from the 70's, despite having 2 big area in the room to place a desk or counter there was no desk or counter it would be nice to have. Bedroom furniture dated 80's, lamps have been repainted to look new but are old, dresser and head board are pink bleached oak 80's. need more plugs in the room to charge iPhone and laptops, is only 1 plug and no desk so you have to put your phone on the ground. HALLWAY & ELEVATOR: not vacuumed properly, the edges of the hallway carpet had lots of lint, dirt, bits of paper as not vacuumed properly by maids. The Best Western welcome mat in the elevator was dirty for 2 days, lint, bits of paper etc obviously not vacuumed...send the message of welcome to my dirty hotel. We stayed for 2 days in March prior to a cruise. We would stay again as the price was right. Also buses in front to get up and down to South Beach only $2.
