After reading some reviews I admit my expectations weren't high. I needed to stay in this location for easy access to where I needed to be for the dates of April 14 - 19 since I had no car. The shuttle took 25 minutes to arrive after I called for it. Being originally from Miami I know the traffic can be terrible so I was prepared to be patient. The driver, Orlando, was very polite and nice.
I walked into room 208 and was pleasantly surprised. The room was large and tastefully decorated with 2 comfortable queen sized beds, looked like new and was perfectly clean and fresh. The air-conditioner was running quietly and it was nice and cool. The approach to the room in the hall was clean and well kept. I had a view of the well groomed neighborhood as shown in my photos.
The bathroom was a standard design with a shower in the bathtub, toilet in the middle with a door that opens outward so as to not be in the way, and an attractive modern sink unit with a large granite counter space and excellent lighting. There were plenty of convenient power outlets in the room, including by the bed on the wall lamp. It was large enough to fit any size converter/adaptor for your electronic device.
Check in was fast and friendly. There were fresh cookies at the check in counter. The lobby is very clean and attractive with a pretty water feature. There is coffee for free each morning in the lobby with plain or flavored creamers and also a single serve coffee maker in the room. The room also had a microwave and a small refrigerator in a separate cabinet. The television has digital HD programming which takes full advantage of the large modern wide screen TV. The wifi worked perfectly and was fast and free. I didn't try the paid breakfast which was recommended to me to have a la carte.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It's an easy one mile walk to 8th Street aka Calle Ocho. And just a few blocks from Miracle Mile. It was definitely a great value for Miami.
