This hotel is really a motor hotel - probably built in the 1960s but updated and well maintained. The front desk staff are all very courteous and helpful. I requested a move to a room further in the back as I'm a light sleeper and wanted to be further from the traffic noise on Harding Avenue. The front desk didn't hesitate to accommodate my request, despite the place being almost booked solid for the BCS game in early January 2013.
Although not situated right on the beach, this place is a short block and a half directly across from the North Shore State Recreation area which is adjacent to the beach. There is no-charge parking conveniently located all arond the building, so you can park relatively close to your room.
Most of the rooms face into the courtyard pool, but there is an extra bank of rooms on each of the north and south sides of the building, respectively, that face outward to either street.
Most of the rooms have a handy kitchenette area with a microwave, small fridge, sink, coffeemaker and cupboards and come stocked with plastic cutlery,cups, plates and bowls. There is also plenty of closet and drawer space.
Housekeeping is very thorough and efficient but BE CAREFUL NOT to leave anything on the floor in the kitchen when you leave in the morning unless you want housekeeping to dispose of it.
The in-room safe is a nice touch. If you need an iron, you can check one out from the front desk for a refundable $10 deposit.
Overall, I was very pleased with my stay here and will likely stay again. If you like spending most of your Miami vacation at the water or sightseeing and don't need a 4 or 5 star hotel just to sleep in, this place is good value in a good location.
