Let me start off by saying that we are not particularly picky people. When we go on vacation we have things to do and usually go to the hotel only to sleep and shower. Which is why we are usually very relaxed when it comes to choosing a hotel. Our only requirements usually are location, budget and safety. None of which were fulfilled by Motel Blu.

This place is a total ripoff! The pictures are 100% false advertising. This place might have looked like it does in those pictures at some point, but it has not had any maintenance for a while and it shows. The area where its located is a terrible neighborhood, dodgy, and unsafe. There were really shady people and bums walking around at all hours and particularly at night. Every time we left our room I felt like I needed to take everything valuable with me. When we arrived the hallway to our room was littered with thrash bags and spilled thrash. DISGUSTING.

The actual room was HORRIBLE, dirty, moldy and dingy. The curtains were torn, nasty and barely covered the window. The lamp in the room had NO LIGHT BULB. The remote didn't work. The air conditioner had big gaps all around it, we had to leave the air on the whole time just to keep the room cool. And there wasn't even a phone in the room to call down to the lobby. The pillows were so thin and over used that we had to stack them. We had no towels on the first day, and when we asked for some we were told that they had a problem with the laundry and to check the room later. When we did receive our towels they were small and veryyyy thin.

Parking was free but limited, we arrived late after a night out and had to park on the side of the street, which they considered part of their parking lot, but it was still on the street. Needless to say, I spent all night worrying about my car. The so-called "continental breakfast" consisted of bagels and donuts, there was a rusty toaster in the lobby which we didn't even go near.

I WOULD NOT recommend this to ANYONE! If you are looking to save money there are plenty of places in Miami that would at least be clean and safe. In the end, that is all you can hope for in a hotel.

Good location, at Biscayne Blvd near Bayside, downtown Miami and Beach.
The breakfast is terrible. The rooms are just regular. Not so clean. I had some problems with AC. Our room got flooded all our stay at the motel.

The carpet of the room was totally disgusting, it was stained, totally dirty. The worst thing was the bathroom, it looks horrible! In the shower, the curtain doesn´t cover the total lenght and height, so the water comes out, the bathroom flooded every time you take a shower!

Location is good. The main problem in the room was the toilet, it is in a regular condition, the curtain in the shower is too short and the water comes out every time you take a shower and you have to use sandals all the time because the carpet is totally disgusting. The toilet was not clean during our stay and furniture is very old. Good attention from staff, the wireless did not work properly. Breakfast is a lie, just bread and coffee.
