The stay at the hotel was very nice. We weren't in the heart of Miami, however we were just a few miles away. For the price I expected something a little less inviting yet the hotel was really nice. When you first walk in the atmosphere instantly set you back to a calm relaxing feeling. The hotel was big and bright yet it seemed more like a vacation spot than a hotel. The staff was really nice and the manager, Carlo Lima always went out of his way to make sure we were happy. Most staffs at a hotel ask us how we are and if we are having fun but the staff there really made you feel like they meant it. Carlo Lima himself would ask us how we are and a few times would stand there and hold a conversation with us which is going well beyond a simple greeting most hotels give you. The rooms were nice and surprisingly spacious and again for the price it just couldn't be beat. If we ever go back we will stay there again no doubt about it. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Miami.

Room Tip: Get the jacuzzi room!

Duane H,

I am extremely pleased that you were able to feel at home while staying at my hotel! Our main focus is to make our guests feel like they are staying with close friends or family while staying with us.

I espicialy like the tip you gave to our future guests about selecting the jacuzzi rooms, they are a true treat and great for relaxing.

I will be sure to advise the Sales Director, Carlo about your kind words regarding his service.

Please come back to us soon!

Great position for this very nice hotel. The south-west position with respect to Miami (ca. 40 minutes from South Beach and 30 minutes from the international airport) should not scary; if you have a car this is one of the best solution to visit Miami and the Everglades, and a good stop to move towards the Keys or towards north. Reasonable price, breakfast included in the price and very spacious and silent rooms.
In order to have wonderful sunset views request a room with a view of the front parking.
Strongly suggested!

Booked at short notice we got a good room and excellent service from the staff. The location was close to the highway and a short drive from dining options. On check out we noted they are the only hotel of several hotels we stayed at during our vacation to ask how our stay was which we appreciated.

Booked this hotel by mistake as thought it was near miaimi international which it clearply isn't! After the initial shock of th taxi fare ($90) we were pleasantly suprised by the hotel itself.
Staff were so helpful and friendly and upgraded us to a king suite which was amazin. Huge room]nd bed and the bathroom was the same size as the bedron. we really appreciated the staff being so helpful as we were having accommodation issues for the next day so let us use the internet and phones for free.
Breakfast was typical holiday inn but a lot better than most places- make your own pancakes and hot and cold buffet options replaced until the end which was good.
Overall, would not stay here unless I had reason to be in Kendall, but if i did then it would be the place to stay for good service and lovely rooms.

I have stayed at this hotel in West Kendall four times in the past year for business reasons.
The staff are always helpful. The rooms are spacious and well equiped. For a longer stay a suite is worth the extra cost with the sitting area, microwave and small fridge.
The breakfast is tasty and offers enough variety.
The pool is well maintained and the spa is comfortable and clean.
