I stayed at this hotel last week. I can tolerate basically anything, but this hotel has bed bugs. The beds are not only horribly uncomfortable (they squeak every time you move), but there are bed bugs. We stayed there two nights. It's definitely one of the cheapest options in Miami, but I would not recommend it unless you are willing... More

This hotel, is extremely straight forward with what you pay for. It is, a cheap hotel downtown. As a young adult, it was perfect for me and my friends who were on a budget. Although the bathroom was small, it was clean, and seemed to be redone recently. The shower head was brand new. We booked a room with one... More

Pretty much everything about the place was terrible. The problems went from bad to worse: 1. The bathroom was tiny. I'm 110 pounds and I barely fit in the place. 2. The temperature control on the shower was broken. Took a shower for barely a minute before I had to jump out. 3. The fridge door is essentially un-openable. My... More

This place is awful, the front-desk clerk, was intimidating lacking respect, the hotel was in a pretty bad condition, dirty and stinky and was going through some sort renovation. There was a loud music close to the reception area. I end up canceling my reservation when I saw the condition of the hotel. I do not recommend this place.

Inexpensive, decent downtown location, friendly staff... Looks dodgy, but a family owned small hotel... Has a bed, a shower and close to Bayside, AA Arena, freeway in and out of South Beach and Brickell...

Let me state, always pay attention to the reviews. We figured it can't be that bad. We had problems finding the hotel because of the outside construction. The lobby has wood on the walls. (upgrade in progress I think) We slept in our clothes and we did not dare use the tub or shower. The tub looks like someone hand... More

We had to spend a night in downtown Miami during New Year's week as a last minute plan.. hence everything was already booked and/or over priced... Fortunately we found this hotel. Yes this place screams ghetto!! from inside and out... but as travelers my husband and I are very patient and accommodating.. hence we were alright out here.. and thankfully... More

Excellent location very friendly and nice staff, I stayed for a whole week without problems and I would do it again, very familiar. I was able to walk everywhere and the bus station and metromover is very close as well.

Well aware of the cheepness of the hotel - I'm still surpriced over the lack of service and the VERY poor cleaning standard - Why run a hotel if you don't have any interest in giving some kind of positive experience. Very bad experience!
