Reviewed yesterday NEW

Across the street from University of Miami. A+++ for location!. Staff was wonderful. Clean and neat. This is an older property in need of a face lift. Guest rooms dated, and lobby furniture was drab and sagging. Restaurant and pool area were very nice. Breakfast was magnificent.

Room was large and quiet (although they upgraded me). It had a fridge/microwave/coffeemaker. Parking should have been $10 but since I had joined the holiday inn thing, they upgraded my room and gave me free parking. Restaurant was pleasant but food was not the best and the selection wasn't especially good. I'd definitely stay there again. Friendly staff, fast check-in,...

Overall, this is a fairly nice hotel. The room was nice-sized and fairly comfortable. It was clean. The bed was comfortable. I was on the third floor in room 367. The room has an exhaust vent that appears to be tied in with a central ventilation system for the entire hotel. The blower for the vent must have been on...

This staff at the front desk were welcoming and friendly. The room was clean. My only real complaint is that the bathroom was VERY SMALL!! Located near a Starbucks and TGIF. The pool could have used a few more lounge chairs.

Stayed at hotel for university tour and a couple days of tourist activities. Great location to explore area, and surrounded by many restaurants and shopping centers. We had stayed at this hotel a few years ago and I am happy to report that improvements have been made. This is an older property so the rooms and bathrooms are small. However,...

My wife and I stayed at the HI Coral Gables on the second half of March. Although we are rather picky when selecting a hotel on urban locations, we choose this hotel for the proximity to UM where our son studies. When reserving a room, we are used to not choosing the least expensive offer. We tend to be suspicious...

The hotel is in a great location to many things. My issue is it needs some work. Rooms are a bit out dated and staff is decent. I had a problem with my tv picture. They got someone right up to fix it. The picture was snowy and the guy hit the back off it and made it better for...

This motel is a sad commentary on the profit motive. Locate a property in a popular destination with relatively little competition and let it perform as a cash cow, regardless of quality, looks, or smell. The Holiday Inn at Coral Gables is operated by a private owner who clearly doesn't care much about anything but margins. The people who work...

Recent stay of 2 nights on business. Found day and evening desk staff and maintenance staff very cordial, helpful and knowledgable. The facility sorely needs a makeover. There were live ants in the room, one of us was bitten, the room smelled stale and old, the balcony was nice, except it looked over a parking lot and had NO chairs...
