“Price and reliability are the redeeming facors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

I'm a fan of Motel 6 from way back. But this hotel is old and dirty in many places. The carpet in my room was stained and soiled. The elevator was grubby and in poor repair (some indicator lights not working, loose panels). And the elevator was VERY slow, so much so that you really want to carry all your stuff to your room in one trip, because it would consume considerable time to take the elevator a second time.

As to be expected for a Motel 6, there was no Kleenex in the room, and no breakfast in the morning. There was coffee available in the lobby, though. Internet was available for $3/day and it worked well.

What I liked about this place was that the price was low and honest (you knew exactly what you would be charged), the phone was free, and the staff was friendly.

Also, it was in a good location for me.

It's hard to find a decent low-cost hotel in the Miami area. This one suffices (more or less).

I was happy to move on, though.

At about 25 minutes up to the north of Homestead. The staff told you not to go out. It is nearly safe. Nothing to do in the neighboorhood, you ve got to avoid cutler bay at any price. however The room are clean, but not really isolated. because of a huge window with curtains. I did not feel really safe there. And it is too expensive for what it is worth. I was really unsatisfied about the motel 6.

I booked the hotel mainly because of the good reviews, but a little scared of not being what expected because hotels with low prices in the great Miami area are hard to get by.
I agree with the reviews: friendly staff, comfy beds, good showers. No breakfast, only coffee but you can buy food at the markets nearby and store it in the fridge or use the microwave. I didn't get to use the pool so I cannot comment about it. There seemed to be some shady characters who were noisy but we only saw them inside the elevator.
The rooms facing the turnpike are somewhat noisy, but on my second day (booked one more day) I asked for a different room, at the opposite side.
I had no issues with transportation as I rented a car. They offer free parking and it is huge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room opposite the turnpike.

This is a Motel and should not be compared to high range hotels of course. Motel type with outside corridors on balcony. We stayed 2 nights. Note there a no breakfast possibilities in the morning.

Positive:
- honnest pricing
- friendly people at reception
- rooms are clean and a empty fridge is avaible for food or drinks you bring with you. Also small microwave available
- well situated near turnpike to get quicky to the main entrance of Everglades park. Even to the north. Also restaurants and shopping malls very close.
- swimming pool
- prvt airco, good beds, clean bath area
- free coffee in the morning in the reception hall

Neutral remark:
- central pc wud be usefull for those who do not have own laptop with them

Negative:
- with exception to the the reception hall, the public corridors elevators could be cleaner and better maintained.
- Belonging to Accor group... but your A Club card will not receive any points.

Conclusion:
Honnest price quality and wud recommend it for short practical stays.

I book this hotel every time my friend comes to visit. Last time it was only $45/night. It is extremely affordable, very clean & is walking distance to the mall with many restaurants close by. It is literally seconds from the Turnpike. It is motel style with outside corridors. The rooms do not have central a/c so the sound of the air running takes a little getting use to but with all the other positives of this hotel, it is no big deal. I highly recommend this hotel. It is a GREAT value!

Room Tip: I always ask for a high floor.

We stayed for just 1 night and it was good. We would go there again. Good price, clean room, good beds, good shower. A bit noise but its near the highway.

Good place to stay.

We needed a cheap Hotel as we were on our way to Key West and this seemed perfect. it literally is just seconds from the Turnpike and was all we expected. Typical Motel Style outside corridors and no central air which does cause me to never get the best nights sleep with the noise but it was a good property for the money we paid.

The rooms are clean and well appointed.....yes it may be in need of updating but we have no complaints at all and we would stay here again and would recommend it to others too.

The wireless internet is $3 per night. usually cheaper hotels offer this free and it is only the expensive hotels charge from my experience but the signal was strong and it worked fast so was worth the extra.

One minor complaint. Loads of towels and soap but no shampoo....I washed my hair with a bar or soap (have not had to do that in a long time!). Shower was great though and bathroom although old was spotlessly clean.

If you are thinking of staying here please do! It was well worth $49 per night we paid.
