“Could not imagine a worse place to stay.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

We stayed at the Parisian during WMC week because we booked the trip last minute and there weren't many options without paying an arm and a leg. We had very low expectations going in to it, but could not imagine just how bad it would be. We took a red eye from California so we arrived very early in the morning. We went to the hotel, knowing there probably would not be a room ready that early, but we wanted to see if we could store our bags while we got some breakfast. We went to the front desk and said that we had a reservation today.. we weren't even given a chance to finish our sentence before the lady exclaimed "You're way too early. Check back around 1:30 and we might have a room ready by then, maybe." We asked if there was somewhere we could leave our bags and she pointed to the wall next to the front desk and said "You can put them right there. We are a boutique hotel. We don't have room for luggage storage." We put our bags in a friend's room and asked the woman if it was possible to give us a call once a room became available. Her answer was "No." That's it, just "no". I overheard a man from out of the country asking her for directions, and she responded "You're better off to just take a taxi because they will know where to go and I don't want to be responsible if you get lost." She was just terrible.
We finally got to our room in the afternoon and the rooms were terrible. They smelled. We couldn't find a light that worked. We sat on the bed and you heard a crunching noise because the mattresses were covered in plastic. They do have a refrigerator in the room, which was good if you wanted anything to drink because when we asked where the ice machine was we were told it was broken. The beds/bedding/pillows were terrible.
After we left and thought we were done with the worst place ever, we found out later that they charged our credit card $100 because since we didn't go to the front desk to check out (even though we had our luggage at the front desk at 5am and had them call us a cab to the airport) they did not check out our room untl 3pm and that's a late checkout fee of $100.
Do yourself a favor and stay ANYWHERE but here!

Went there in January after booking with Expedia. We were surprised by the 100 dollar cash deposit. Most hotels just take your credit card. Only two people at a time can ride the elevator. Wanted to take a late night bath but all the hot water was used. Breakfast was a bunch of pastries and no coffee was even made. I checked out just as the rest of my party was heading downstairs and the female supervisor called us "scammers" because I asked for our deposit back before everyone was out of room. Before that there was some confusion if I got the money back or not. Spend the extra money and stay at the Marriot or somewhere in which you get treated like a customer and not a "scammer". Front desk needs some lessons on how to be professional.

This hotel is in a great location if you want to stay in south beach for cheap. The hotel is very old and run down the rooms haven't been updated since the early 80's. The beds were so old and the sheets were thin and disgusting. TV was an old tube TV and there is nothing good to say about the rooms. The only perk is location and because of its poor condition its cheap. The staff wasn't very friendly either. There is also NO hotel parking so you have to pay to park.

Room Tip: No room is good here.

This place epitomizes horrendous....from the rooms, to the staff. I'd have a hard time justifying this hotel for $15/night in Tijuana......seriously, it's a cesspool of a hotel. Smoking rooms, beds with coils sticking out, no AC control (on max with no on/off or temp control), not trash can, no shower head, badly stained carpets, broken blinds, and a staff that seems to be on loan from the local prison. It's hard to imagine such a low level of quality and service in a location that could be a gold mine. Don't be fooled....pay more to stay somewhere else. Can you say B E D B U G S ?? Horrendous.

Room Tip: Don't stay here

This place is the most discusting and horrible place I have ever stayed. The employees are rude and discosting themselve. Avoid staying here by all means stay under a bridge you will sleep better and get a better treatment.

When ape like creatures gathered themselves together, invented fire, realised the absence of humour in Adam Sandler films and finally moved out of feces lined caves, I think they imagined they would never return to that place. Sadly, some modern day hominids had the misfortune of unearthing the cave, or Parisian Hotel & Suites as they call it now.

The subsequent million years haven't been kind to the place, though it may pass for a museum of;

a) Strange coloured stains, upon all fittings.
b) The horrors of the drug trade, the syringes carefully displayed in separate draws.
c) Conception techniques throughout the ages, from the modern condom beneath the bed, to the shower that only ran in ice cold jets straight from a Russian base in the Arctic.

Like all good museums, out front was displayed several mummified bodies, tenuously referred to as "staff" They really were quite convincing, I though I saw one of them move slightly, but to believe that would be a bit daft.

Horrible customer service, both when I tried contacting them via phone to ask some questions about check-in and luggage(I asked when check-in was, they told me and then promptly hung-up without letting me ask any other questions I might have had, or informing me about an early check-in option they had.) They had a complimentary breakfast, but it was pastries that were hard and nasty.

Other than the customer services issues I had, the rooms smelled pretty bad, and you could hear EVERYTHING from down the halls. The place obviously hasn't had a revamp since the 80s.

Another thing, which was more of a humorous thing to me, but I guess if you wanted this sort of thing it could be an inconvenience, they had an iron but no ironing board.

Well, in any case, at least they don't bar the windows so you can promptly end your stay at any time.

(I'm posting this piggy backed on the hotel next door's wifi)
