“looks and feels a bit run down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The water in the toilet seemed yellow all the time. The hotel carpets definitely are run down. They offer free parking and free breakfast, but finding a place to sit and eat your breakfast might be a challenge given the lack of space.
Very close to Miami Beach (6 miles). Getting to the hotel (from I-95) will take you through a scary part of town, but it gets better as you get closer to the hotel.

Excellent value and great location on the Bay. Centrally located between almost everything Miami. Just minutes from the ball park to Miami beaches. Excellent service and friendly helpful attitude by all staff encountered. Would most definitely stay here again and recommend to family and friends!

We love love loved our stay at best western. The staff here are tremendously helpful! Awesome rooms, great prices, and fun area. Close to Ybor. Will stay again! Highly recommended! Best value we ever paid at any hotel. Five stars even compared to other best westerns, we were very surprised.

I want to thank all the staff that made us feel like at home. We had an early check in on our arrival and the Front Desk lady was superb doing her job!!! The room was clean and accomodating. The rooms have balconies were you can enjoy the bay view and relax. The reason why I give this hotel a four, instead of a five, is beacuase at check in no one help us with our suitcases (the only thing to improve). The rest excellent.

This hotel is a three star hotel. If you are looking for a four star hotel, don't come here. We were pleased with what we got. Clean room, clean pool, clean breakfast area, friendly staff, good location to explore Miami and the surrounding area. There is a supermarket nearby but no places to eat within walking distance. It was a pity that the onsite restaurant Shuckers was closed (building unsafe!) but there is no mention of this on the websites we looked at prior to going.

Great location to Miami beach. Huge parking lot. Patrolled by security which is very good. Breakfast is included - very average but does have some sausage and weird foam egg things. Rooms can be tiny even the king ones. And the rooms next to the ice machine have almost no sound proofing. We had such a room and luckily the front desk was very accommodating and switched our room.

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.
