“Not so good value for money”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

This motel was bookable online during a festival(I think a lot of motels at biscayne blvd are not online), so we really had to book something in advance. More decent options were sold out already. For the price they charged the facilities were poor. It was basic, clean, but a bit damp in the room. Looked a bit run down.Good wifi, room has convient furniture and microwave. At arrival they wanted to charge an extra "service charge " that was not mentioned in our online invoice trough a hotel site. It was sneaky, because at first they pretended it was tax, but after our objections and showing the print out they refunded it without a lot of hassle. So overall, clean and basic, but just a bit overpriced. The motel next door (seven seas, not online)was a bit more basic, but also half price.
