Management is disinterested and unorganized. Renovations are cheap and poorly executed. The place shows lots of wear and there is a terrible odor that is hidden by some sort of hotel scent. This was very off putting and took some getting used to. The location is okay but with so many other options go for a large chain where management isn't asleep and rude. Also beware of added parking and amenities fees.
It is not a central hotel, nor it is not a luxury hotel, but for family of 4, it had a nice suite, equipped with everything we needed for our 1 night stay, so we were very pleased. Gives you a feeling you want to come back, or to wish your stay was longer. Close to everything, but not in the middle of the crowded beach area, so it was really good. We only wish our room would have been ready earlier, but in full capacity, it's hard, so we get that.
The room was clean and comfortable. The people at the reception are professional as well. But I was asked to pay an additional $33 per night as amenities fees which I was not aware of. The hotels.com website I used to book this trip said I was all paid for. On top of that, the hotel charges a ridiculous $35/day parking fee.
This apartment hotel matched our requirements good for a couple of nights. Comfy beds, tiny bathroom but with good kitchen space. Big Minus that the washing machine and dryer wasn’t cleaned for ages... it seems that the cleaners ignores to clean this are for quite some time.. didn’t feel fresh to wash and dry our clothes in filthy machines.
We rented a 3 bed place here which was a great base for the family for a quick 3 day stint in Miami at the end of our Florida tour. Location was great as literally 2 blocks from Lincoln Road, and also 5/10 min walk the other way from a supermarket for bits and bobs. The room itself was clean and modern. Small kitchen with fridge and room to cook (although we used Uber eats) only slightly annoying thing was the fire escape door into a corridor that was right off the bedroom- the noise from the huuuuuglely loud people upstairs carried right down the corridor and through the door (big gap at the bottom) into the lounge. Also worried about security given the gap on the door. Fire could easily be escaped using the front door like the other bedroom! Parking is a consideration if you have a car- there are only 6/8 spaces which isn’t enough for the hotel, and it did not fit our mpv, which is kind of a typical rental car for families driving in Florida. Ended up returning it to the airport a few days early and paying for Uber back to hotel then eventually back to the airport to avoid the hassle and cost of Miami public parking. We unfortunately had very very loud guests above us, going on late into the night. Called the night porter/reception and they eventually came (twice) to sort the issue and talk to the guests, it did appear however that they were off site given the number of times we phoned and then when someone did answer, they took over 15 mins both times to come. Cheaper than a lot of other places but note that there is minimal parking, no pool and Skeleton staff so just bear this in mind, if you’re fine with all this then a good base, but just have your eyes open that it is slightly different to other hotels in Miami in some respects. When it poured with torrential rain for 3 days straight it would have been helpful to have a bar or restaurant or some table tennis/pool etc even if no swimming pool, as some kind of options to pass some time. …
