I stayed here in 2005 on a trip to Miami with my parents. I was hoping that maybe the hotel has improved since then but from reading the more recent reviews it doesn't sound like it has changed very much at all. I've stayed in a lot of hotels in various places around the world and I think this was one of the worst. I'm not really a high maintenance kind of person so as long as a place is clean and in a good state of repair then it's fine by me. It doesn't need to be modern or plush. With that said, I considered changing hotels and if my parents hadn't been with me then I probably would have. They didn't think it was that bad but I was not impressed. One of the other reviews is entitled Ocean Dive and that was exactly how I referred to the hotel. Generally grubby and could do with a reasonable amount of attention in most areas. I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend.
