We flew into Miami from Orlando and missed our flight by 7 minutes. No other flights were available so we were re-booked for the next morning at 7:15 a.m. We were given a "distressed rate" for the Howard Johnsons of $82.00 and sent on our way. We went down to wait for the HJ shuttle bus at 8:00 p.m. NOTHING!!!... More

I came to Miami for the Battlefrog Race that was at a nearby park. Otherwise I would never stay in Hialeah. No one speaks english in Haileah. Anyway, the hotel is super run down. The gym is 3 pieces of equipment, not even enough to work out with. The business center is not free and by no means is it... More

I booked this hotel as it was a fair price and a good location. After parking and going to our room we noticed the hotel wasnt exactly up to date. It seemed ok, with a fridge in the room. There was a few dints in the walls, the door lock was tired and the bathroom was clearly very old. This... More

I have state at this particular HoJo on two occasions. It was refreshing to see the second time around that the hotel had done a renovation/redecoration. The first time I was there the creepy people statues used to scare the poop out of me!! My only down side is the breakfast. It is pretty good, just a bit more excitement... More

It's not your 5 star all inclusive hotel or resort, but the great staff made you feel like it. Didn't have any issues. We drove to Miami and walked into the hotel. They gave us the best room available at the best rate. Waived the daily fees and also gave a free night! If you don't mind a little roughness,... More

The hotel has a great view of the ocean, if your room is on the correct side of the hotel. The towel service is good, and they offer tours too. What really pissed me off though was that housekeeping staff stole some of our things, and knocked over several of our things while cleaning the room without caring to put... More

Not the newest hotel. Not the hottest South Beach location. But a great alternative if you do not want bad surprises for something unknown. Good hotel, good location, nice overall structure. The good classic building is just at the beach and between Bal Harbour and South Beach.
