My husband, baby and I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment (room 207) at the hotel for 4 nights (booked through Expedia) in February and had no complaints. We would stay here again without hesitation.
- Any staff we came into contact with (front desk, housekeeping, etc.) were super friendly and courteous.
- All areas of the hotel were very clean (reception, steps, courtyard) and there was always a caretaker hosing and sweeping the courtyard throughout the day.
- The room was spotless and was very spacious. Decor was very modern and updated. There were nice flatscreens in both the living room and bedroom.
- A crib (playpen) was already in the room for our baby and when we asked for our bedding to be changed, they changed the bedding the playpen as well.
- The hotel was very quiet the week we were there. The bedroom was even quieter. We slept perfectly.
- The hotel has beach towels they lend out if you don't have your own.
- Location is amazing, on a quiet street just off Collins: 2 short blocks to the beach in one direction, 2-3 blocks to Lincoln Road in the other direction. We felt very safe and the surrounding streets were very clean.
- FREE wi-fi in the rooms, free PC in the reception area to print your boarding passes.
- You can come and go at your leisure through a locked gate at the side of the hotel without passing through reception.
Honestly, I can't really think of any negatives. Don't believe the previous review of this being a "poor motel standard" and something like student hostel. It is not AT ALL - at least not if you take the one-bed apartment and not just a standard room.
The bed was too soft for my liking as I prefer a firm mattress but that's more a matter of personal preference. It was still quite comfortable and we slept well.
