Headed down to Miami to watch the Dodgers play the Marlins. Did some research on hotels that are close to the park and would shuttle. Find this one, rooms seemed to be nice and price was reasonable for being Miami. Got to the hotel and found the neighborhood wasnt that great, was almost scared to get out of the car. The front staff didnt have a room ready for us, mind you we were almost an hr early, had to wait in the lobby almost 30 mins for someone to help us. Never even gave an option to park in the garage. Was told our card needed to be ran as a debit by default, turned out no to be true, Never even signed a single paper she just slid the card. Then they charged almost 25 more then when we had reserved the hotel online. Got to our room and it was actually very nice, clean and bed was very comfortable. Went to the front to ask about the shuttle service to the park, was told they dont do that we would have to wait for the trolley that comes every 15 minutes. Waited almost an hour for a trolley that never came, and had the pleasure of "watching" some young man undress and change his clothes right in front of us, yet another sign of a great neighborhood. Ended up waisting 20 to pay for parking because no one could tell us where or how to get to the ballpark. Ordered pizza after getting back and the front office staff called our hotel room after midnight to see if we were getting delivery. Following morning we received a bill under our door that stated all the fees, i have never heard of a place that charges you a parking fee and then charges you tax on top of that! Went down to breakfast and you have LOTS of people trying to cram into one little room and get breakfast. Although the food was great, could have used more room and seating area. Ask another front desk clerk about the charges on our bill and why we were charged more then the bill amount, she stated it was just a hold to make sure it goes through, also mentioned that the trolley doesnt normally run on the weekends unless there is a special event that day. She was very nice and very helpful. All in all i wont be staying at the hotel again.
