“Nice change of pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This older boutique hotel is a great place to unwind or to stay while on business, and the pets love it too. Aside from the continuing problem of the residents from the next door apartment using the hotel's pool... which isn't so bad except for their babies in diapers (yuck) the numbers can reach into 30 at a time and cause a lot of noise. Rooms are okay, but the furniture in most is awful and uncomfortable. Beds are fine, just couches and chairs are unusable. Internet is getting better, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. We have stayed here for 6 weeks due to business in Miami and will stay again.

MarkPeebles - Thank you for your continued patronage and for sharing your experiences with us. We apologize for the extra pool activity. This was a temporary thing as one of the adjacent residential pools was being redone and a few residents had asked about using our pool. We are also currently working on refreshing some of the guestrooms as well as increasing the bandwidth on our WIFI and hope you enjoy the changes once completed.

Thanks again for sharing.

My stay here at this hotel was lovely. The staff here I can't say enough GOOD things about the staff and the cleaniess of the rooms. Monika Fuentes, and Daniel, Jackee were the BEST!!!!! they treated my husband and I like we were Kings and Queens. The rooms were beautiful. I will surely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to my friends and family. The highways were challenging but no reflection on the hotel. Thanks for a great time in Miami!!!!

I stayed for a week at the hotel Indigo, it was one of the best hotel stays of my life. The rooms are very well appointed, a writing desk with a very nice chair, very nice and confortable bed, and walls that are not painted white. It was a very nice change to have a room which is not the normal boring white color. They hotel has a really nice landscaped courtyard, with a very nice sized pool. The hotel has a bar and restaurant located on site, with two very good bartenders. The food at the hotel is first rate, and not as expensive as people would expect. The staff at this hotel are all very nice, including Jackie at the front desk and Marchela at the bar. The hotel is located next to Don Shula's golf course and steak house, if you like that sort of thing. There are quite a few restaurants within a few miles of the hotel. In addition, there are plenty of places to walk if you want to go to walk after a big meal.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard have a balcony.

I located this hotel during a search for somewhere to stay that was close to the fishing guide company my son and I were going to use and some place that my wife could enjoy too. I certainly found a great place! The hotel is very brightly painted, well decorated and comfortable. The rooms are well appointed, clean, and each a little differently decorated. All employees were very friendly, accommodating and helpful.
The hotel even includes a shuttle to nearby locations......all free! A bonus is being on the same piece of property as Don Shula's Steak House. Only a two minute walk for a great meal.
We all truly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the ask, it will be a bit quieter.

This was our second visit to this hotel. Once again we found it very comfortable, clean and the staff friendly. When we arrived the clerk was very friendly and check-in was very easy and fast. We were informed that we received an upgrade to a suite, very nice room.

A few things to keep in mind about this hotel… No microwaves in the rooms. No complimentary breakfast. We knew this when making the reservation so it wasn’t a surprise. However, I do like to visit the idea of a breakfast bar of some kind. I don’t sleep in and my wife does. I enjoy taking a visit to the breakfast bar in a hotel for coffee while watching the news while my wife takes her time getting around. Otherwise, I feel a little rushed to get out for coffee and breakfast and not just enjoy the stay and relax.

We would normally stay at a Best Western because of the complimentary breakfast, but the rates were too jacked up for this weekend.

The room was very comfortable and clean. We will stay again if we can’t get into the Best Western. The complimentary breakfast is a deal breaker for me if the price is right.

Often, flights coming in from Europe, arrive late in the afternoon. So a quiet location (because you need sleep! particularly after immigration ...) not too far from the airport is essential. And you find one here! It's a short drive with your rental car, just off Palmetto Expy, and has a garden and a golf course just behind the rooms. So you enjoy the calm, the warmth, the trees, the well kept room and even breakfast is alright. A perfect point to get started :-)
Only the nearby steakhouse (belongs to the golf club) is definbitely overpriced :-(

Room Tip: Look for a room towards the golf course!

My only issue was the bed, room 1116 building A... The bed was not comfortable at all! The pool was great the location the best! The hotel was very clean! Shula's is next door and the golf was very nice as well

KimPatton - Thank you for the feedback regarding your recent stay with us. So sorry to hear about your experience with our beds but appreciate the feedback. We did inspect both beds in the room and did not find any physical anomalies. We hope this one issue did not impact your entire stay with us too much.
