We had reservations there for well over a month in advance, but got a call tonight informing us that the place had been sold to developers and would be closed forever in five short days... (FIVE DAYS, people, and we were flying in from New York!!! )
The new owner (since June '11) appears to possess zero integrity... Not only did he screw whomever had reservations after April 30, but he also had the gall to have his desk-staff recommend another dive he (conveniently) runs a few miles south of there on Harding, the Beach Place Hotel.
According to several reviews this site, the Beach Place might well be called The Bed-Bug Inn, but I wouldn't give that AH a penny, even if the place was the Taj Mahal at Motel 6 prices. I can't imagine how a multi-million deal could go down in such short order.... Is there any way he couldn't have known about it before he took my reservation?
Enough about me... It's a sad day for Haulover-goers in general. The OP was a really fun dump in a great location, and now I suppose some fool is going to single-handedly attempt to resusitate the moribund real estate market in South Florida by building another vacant high-rise next to the Trump disasters.
It's an absurd world.
