Location is perfect, just 2 blocks from Bayside Marketplace and a nice café pavillon for having breakfast close by. The rooms are quite old and small but when you are just spending the nights there it is absolutely okay. You also got a fridge in the room. The staff at the reception is very attentive, friendly and helpful.

This hotel is ideal for people looking for a cheap place to spend a day or two in Miami. A short walk to the bayside shopping centre and pretty much in the centre of downtown. The rooms are small and have the basics, but it was exactly what we needed for our trip. Uber pool cost us $3 each way... More

What can I say about this place "we was desperate" after being scammed at a close by condo. We had been traveling for over 23 hours (from Australia) after checking a couple of other close by hotels with no luck as they were full we were stuck with this hotel. Please do not stay here it is a dump, hard... More

Worst experience and the owners want your payment but have no respect for you. The entire family live in the rooms of the hotel. We stayed for a week and watched how owners were disrespectful of Islanders and Hispanics with their characterization of those individuals. Find another hotel with a cleaner environment, better rapport, and are concerned for the appeal... More

Grateful to find the time to write this review that I must say is long overdue. I researched the establishment and ratings were questionable but also outdated. Given the location that is hard to match it was definitely worth a visit. Immediately I was won over. The ongoing remodeling of the hotel is fabulous and yet still keeping it's classic... More

My husband and I stayed here the day we got off of our cruise and we looked at the pictures first before reserving. We thought that this place was a really nice hotel from the looks of it. Well, when we walked in, it was pretty inside, but the ceilings were pipes. This told me already that this was an... More

This is really not as bad a hotel as lots of sites imply. If your on business the price, the CBD location is v.good. The place has had a renovation & the area generally is under a clean-up program. For the visitor not needing to be at South Beach $$$$

The lobby was nice. The room was very plain but clean. The two women at the front desk were very helpful and made our stay OK. It was only for one night before the cruise we were taking. Why spend more money just to skeep.

I had serious doubts about how clean the place was. The window and room looked rundown, only the lobby is nice and some of the staff were nice but the rest is not good. The elevator seems that its going to break down at any moment, it was scary. I couldnt wait to get out of there, to be honest.
