I entered the hotel and was greeted by Michelle and Jenny, who are lovely and helpful clerks. The room was clean, and large, and had a nice bathroom. It was also quite enough that I could study for my test tomorrow. Thanks HI.

Jenny and Jane at the front desk were so courteous and friendly, always willing to help and answer questions. Margi at the convenience store is great as well as the staff in the restaurant. Excellent service!

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn at UM twice now while visiting family in the area. The hotel is in a great location, close to the university, shops, restaurants but it is a little dated but very clean. What it does provide that the more exclusive hotels in the area don't, is exceptional customer service. I like the fact... More

We returned to this place for location and see it has been upgraded and prices are higher. Nice check in Ashley. And wifi. But the key card holder says Free Parking and the bill charged 10 dollars for parking. HI get it straight.

This is the best hotel if you are visiting the Univ of Miami. It is a bit tired, but not in bad shape. The staff is great. The breakfast is ok, eggs were a bit old. Everything else was great. Did not get a chance to use the pool, but it looks very nice.

Michelle at the front desk did all she could to make my stay perfect. Very grateful Wifi was a bit slow but I believe there were many people in the hotel. I stayed 2 nights and had a restful stay. I stayed here years ago and was pleasantly surprised it was still as good. If the front desk wasn't so... More
