We stayed at this hotel/motel for one night in January. Considering the location (just a couple of blocks from the Art Deco district, Ocean Drive and the beach) the Garden Hotel offered a competitive price. Parking was a bit of a hassle (unless you decide to go for the rather expensive valet option(, as free parking space is not easy to find. But that would still be recommended if you arrive by car
As stated in other reviews, there is still construction work being done on the premises as it consists of several buildings. Our room was in the "Bel Aire" building, which was basically reminiscent of an old motel.
The room itself was large, quiet and clean. Free wifi (although with a slightly wonky connection) is included. Breakfast was also included in our room rate, but was very basic (cereal, toast, juice and coffee). But considering all the options just outside the hotel that should not be a problem.
In short: ok stay without any frills. Can be recommended.
