“Terrible hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2005

We decided to stay here the night before our flight so we could tour south beach. The room was very cheap, and now I know why. The room only had two beds, no other furniture. There was no room to put anything else. There was about 5 inches between the end of the beds and the dresser to walk. I can't tell you how many times I hit my ankles on the corner of the bed. To top that off, we had 2 small children with us, with no room to move (not an exaggeration). No room for luggage, we had to sit it on the bed with us. The bathrooms are tiny and were dirty with only one towel and no wash cloths or hand towels. Also, I may as well have slept on the street. It was the loudest room I've ever been in. The VERY loud annoying music played until 1:30am and then all the drunks started coming in, slamming doors and yelling (the walls are paper thin). There was one window in our room with a view of a building window about 2 feet away. Will never stay here again!!!!
