Hotel rooms tired, in need to some TLC. Staff friendly. One lift in the hotel and we were on the third floor. Rooms clean enough. Bathroom small. Hairdryer in bathroom but nothing great. Safe provided in room. Air conditioning quite noisy especially when trying to sleep at night. Hotel centrally situated. Breakfast bit of a let down. Continental breakfast existed... More

I visited this hotel with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The hotel is in a good location, a stones throw away from the beach and about a 10 minute walk to the shopping/ restaurant area. The interior was a little dated, but the hotel clean and the staff friendly. Breakfast was good. The only gripe i had... More

The hotel while pleasant is very dated. I don't think it was dirty but you wouldn't say it was clean either. The rooms smell musty but sheets were clean. The towels were stained so bring your own. Most of the staff were very pleasant enough. There is parking here which really helps in the area. The pool area is a... More

More moderately-priced hotel. Rightly deserves just 3 stars. Rooms were clean but very modest in amenities. Just a place to sleep. Service courteous and competent. Small pool and small dark tiki bar. U can skip the bar. Über ride to South Beach........

Hotel in a good position for the beach and attractions. Heated pool and free sun beds. There was a bar that only opened from 7pm and would have been nice if open earlier. Rooms were tastefully decorated with air con and TV but the doors and frames were worn which made the rooms look dated. Carpets and decor all song... More

They have beach access across the street at their sister hotel. You get free chairs, towels & umbrella. Our suite was super cute. Like retro 50's Hollywood.
