I was a little nervous when our cab driver hadn't heard of this place, and this was one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. We arrived around 5pm and were told our rooms were not ready yet, and check in was at 4pm. The person working looked at us like we were crazy when we asked if we could just check our bags, so we didn't have to just sit around and wait for our room to be ready. When we finally got into our room, it smelled terrible and I'm pretty sure there was urine on the walls. There were windows all over the room that were just covered up with huge nasty shades. The nozzle in the shower also fell off when I went to use it. I could hear everything outside and it was terribly annoying. We tried to avoid spending as much time in the room as possible, and I found that the bathrooms at the beach were much cleaner and nicer than at this dump.
Pay the extra money and stay somewhere else in South Beach.
