“Not horrible...but...ummm interesting.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

A very interesting hotel. I read the reviews completely on here to know what to expect when I got there.
Lets just say...ONLY book this hotel if you have to.
People have already spoken about the elevator...it's literally pushed up by someone very old school...interesting to watch but closed at night time after midnight.

Pros:
All in all it was a clean hotel. The lobby was ok.
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! Could walk straight to bayside...that was such a plus. Lots of paid parking places that were very close by.
Shower is actually a nice size

Cons:
The room was so basic...it reminded me of a dorm room. They could easily add some ikea products in those rooms.
Double beds were small and not comfortable
Window: you couldn't see through it
Bathroom: If you sit on the toilet...the sink was right in your face

All in all a VERRRRRRY basic hotel. However the price was awesome I literally paid $55 for a pre-cruise hotel. The did not nickel and dime me whatsoever. The price was exactly what they said it would be (unlike other hotels in Miami).

If your looking for a place to lay your head...this is for you. If you looking for ANYTHING more...stay away.

PS. The night I was there they shut the water off from 11pm-6am (pic included).

This hotel was chosen as one of cheapest in downtown of Miami. Location is excellent, close to park, metromover.
Room is very small, with old furniture, poor air condition, and you hear noice from street during night. The lift is not working in the night, you need use stairs.
There is just bed, and table in the room.
But one of the cheapest in Miami....

This is a very affordable hotel that has been fixed up and cleaned up to make it very acceptable to the traveller on a budget. Yes it is an old hotel and basic as it comes but it does feature a number of attributes. One is location - near Bayside Park and Enter. Ctr., Downtown, adjacent to hotels at 3 times the nightly rate and the MOM public transit. the 7-11 is around the corner for snacks. The shuttle to the Port of Miami or airport is included and convenient. I applaud efforts to regenerate downtown buildings in America and the owners have done just that. But the special feature to beat all is the manually operated elevator which comes right out of the 1920's. Anyone into the history of buildings, skyscrapers and the development of the elevator must experience this one of a kind and one of a handful of such elevators left in North America!

The two main points of this old Hotel are the elevator from mid 19th century and the location. The rooms are small , the windows do not open because they are so many times over painted and dirty. The rest of the room and bathroom where clean but I did not feel cozy. Elevator dose not work from 12 AM to 6 AM . Great Location everything you need for a overnight is close by. Doors and locks are not really save.

Manual elevator, really hot, rude or unhappy staff, bad stairs, smallest rooms ever, creepy atmosphere...and they asked why I wanted a refund?!? Are you kidding me? This place is the lowest of the low in downtown Miami. The only reason I would ever stay here is if my car was set on fire and I couldn't walk to a different hotel. This place is not even up to standards with what a brothel hotel could set for it's guests. Please don't even bring a woman to this hotel, it would make you look lower than scum. Needless to say, although I did not see any bed bugs, this hotel was nasty and disgusting and I left within 12 minutes flat. I still had to pay the 25 bucks for overnight parking down the block and freaked out in the morning when it was closed for the day (it was sunday morning). Please go a few minutes down the road to the Courtyard Marriott hotel.

Slumlord run with no reinvestment back into this dump in 75 years. Should be condemned.

Would make a good set for Saw 5. We stayed here for the Miami boat show. Just across the street. Very depressing to discover that the oldest bar in Miami, Tobacco Road is being torn down, but creepy places like this stay? Ugh....won't be back! Never!

Room Tip: Bring 4 sticks. One to hold the door closed, one to scare off the bums outside, one to scrape the ru...

For the price, Leamington Hotel is still a horrible choice! Unless you are desperate or single and don't mind the "boarding" house feel, STAY AWAY!! Location is right downtown by the cruise ship pier, which is good, if you don't mind staying in the ghetto!! I was terrified in this hotel. We paid for the night but only ended up staying for about 20 minutes. The elevator is terrifying, the beds are old, as are the rooms! Dirty and dangerous. I didn't feel safe here at all, especially with a child! USE CAUTION!!!
