“No crisis management at all! Terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Terrible service! The music around the pool was on and loud through the night I stayed!! Asked the staff to fix the situation but no one can help. The answer I got is only the one with the key access can turn off the music, who can only be on duty after 9:00 AM. This is really irresponsible and no crisis management at all. In fact, all they need to do is to unplug the wire attached behind the speaker, which might only take about 30 seconds. The nightly staff did not stay at the counter when I tried to report the issue. Won't stay here again and won't recommend either.

This hotel exceeds at achieving the plain and simple. The room was clean, well-furnished, and included a nice balcony. The pool was cool and refreshing. The location, while perhaps not the best, did provide free parking--an absolute plus for Miami. We drove to the beach and parked for free, it took less than ten minutes to get there. Breakfast was alright, albeit extremely crowded.

Great location close to Miami and South Beach area, however nothing to do within walking distance. We picked this hotel because in Miami the free parking is very important and rare to find. That's the positive point!
We arrived late after a long and stressed drive distance wishing for a cozy night sleep. Apparently the room was pretty clean and the king bed stocked with lots of pillows looked very attractive. How disappointed we got when we couldn't find our way to relax like we badly needed because the mold or very old carpet smell so bad! So unpleasant. That's the negative point!
The free breakfast was busy but ok nothing special. Because of the short stay we didn't check the amenities neither the free transportation. The Wi-Fi worked fine!
Our overall experience was ok. I would try to stay again but before I will ask for a room with new and fresh carpet definitely!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level have better view to the bay!

The hotel is within decent proximity to the beach and in a nice safe area. The pool is convenient and they serve a great continental breakfast, Shuckers is a good place to eat once it opens again. Great area to get around via bicycle when the weather permits.

My family arrived earlier than check-in and the staff were able to provide a room. The staff picked us up from the airport, gave information about local tours we could take, local eateries, and the local bus system as we chose not to rent a car. The room was affordable, comfortable, clean and the view from my balcony was good. I would recommend to anyone, and when I return to Miami, I will stay here again!

Was good value for money and the staff were superb. We enjoyed the stay very much. Just breakfast got a bit crowded sometimes with little space to sit. The pool was enjoyable as was the sports bar. Thanks
