I decided to read the reviews for this hotel 2 days before travelling and immediately started dreading the trip due to the huge amount of negative reviews. But when I arrived, it could have been a different hotel.
I probably have quite low expectations of a hotel, being more of a budget traveller than a cruise-taker, but there was nothing wrong with this hotel at all. I was only there for one night, to catch another flight in the morning but - the shuttle service was great (in both directions), the room was a reasonable size, the bed was comfortable, the sheets and furniture were clean (I looked very carefully), I slept well, the floor was tiled and clean (no sticky carpets), the breakfast was ok (good coffee and juice but some of the pastries were still frozen), some staff were friendly and others less so but still approachable. Some negatives - there was no plug in the bathroom and there is no room to store products in the bathroom. There is not much room around the toilet and a bigger lady than me had supposedly found it a squash, but I was fine! It was quite expensive for what it was, but for Miami it was cheap. There is nothing to do around the airport and public transport is rubbish, but it served its purpose. The area did not seem dodgy like other reviews had stated, instead, it seemed to be a residential area and therefore did not have much to do. I can imagine that if you usually go on expensive cruises this hotel could be seen as a let down but I was surprised at how good it was compared to how it had been presented here. I'm an Infection Control Nurse and was absolutely dreading the dirty sheets, bad smells, sticky carpets and bedbugs and after careful inspection I was satisfied and slept like a baby! Oh, and I did see the umteen cats at the back of the hotel the next morning having breakfast but they seemed to be under control (and happy and cared for).
