This is an interesting hotel. On one hand it's location is hard to beat and its room-sizes are harder to match for the money, on the other, its lobby is probably worse than a hostel's and front desk staff is tired and uninspiring. So, if you are looking for fancy lobby and a warm welcome, you may skip this place. But if you are looking for a good size room with full fridge and small kitchen only 2 minutes away from the beach, this is your absolute best find. So here is my list of of hits and misses:
1. Unbeatable art deco location on Collins ave between 13th and 14th st.
2. 2 minutes to all fancy restaurants and the beach
3. 5 minutes to great dining street espanola way
4. 10 minutes to Licoln ave mall
5. Big rooms, great for family of four
6. There is a subway next door, so no chance of starving
7. Reasonably priced for south beach
1. The lobby area is unwelcoming and small
2. Almost "zero" hospitality industry training for the front desk staff. I interacted with a guy named Larry. Poor guy did not seem trained to run a foos-ball table area, let alone a hotel front desk. He seemed sleepy and clueless about everything.
3.Totally unorganized front office. There is a drinking water dispenser. But you cant use it since the paper cups have been "missing" for a couple of days according to Larry.
4. Totally apathetic sales manager: Leticia. This person sits in an office behind the front desk but doesnt give a hoot about the customers. She is lost in her own world and does not even smile at the hotel guests in the lobby let alone welcoming them.
5. The rooms are big, but the mattresses are cheap. You can hear the springs making crazy noise every time you turn.
6. The rooms have no dressers what so ever. So you have to operate out of your suitcases most of the time
Overall...value hotel if you are looking for "zero" frills.
