My wife and I travel to Miami often and had booked a short trip to Bimini so we thought we'd give this place a try. We showed up mid-evening and managed to secure a parking space, but be advised they are ample but not abundant. Check in was efficient--until we went to our room, tried the card and were greeted by a half naked (yes) guy in the room. Back to the front desk, where the staff apologized for sending us to an occupied room.
The hotel is quite old, showing its age and a bit run down around the edges, but clean. Beds are good but it's a basic room for a basic price. A few dollars more buys much better accomodation down the street, e.g. Comfort Inn and several others, where we have stayed in the past and will stay in the future.
The worst part? We left a wakeup call for early a.m. as we had to depart for the seaport. There was a power outage and this hotel gave us no call; it has no backup power, and noone even came by with a flashlight, so we were obliged to sit in our pitch-black room until dawn came and we were able to fumble around and find our possessions and lug them down the stairwell (we were on 4th floor) and out to the car. Breakfast? Basic Holiday Inn Express, and after several hours sitting there even the coffee was cold. Our worst stay at a Holiday Inn.
By the way, missed the cruise. IHG, the parent company, denied our request for a refund--apparently electricity is not their responsibility. Perhaps they'll apply our room charge to the purchase of a generator or emergency in-room lighting.
