“Never again!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

4p.m. - First room: No working air conditioning. Second room: Someone sleeping in. Third room: Ants and roaches (5.30p.m.). Fouth room by 2a.m.: Rats eating our chips. Do I have to say something else? We decides to sleep in the car till 7a.m. when the manager should arrive. The neighborhood is not the best even not for Miami.

Stayed because it is about 10 mins from South Beach. Our first room was past some caution tape no one removed after some undisclosed incident. We were given a room that had nit been cleaned of the prior guests trash, was short a pillow, short a sheet on one of the beds and had not been vacuumed. We asked for a clean room and got moved to a room without curtains to block the parking lot lights and only 2 towels for 4 people, one washcloth for all. They will not make your sheets and restock the room unkess you stay and ask the cleaning crew personally. There is no nob sign to use instead so you can enjoy going to do other things around town. It was gross and uncared for except the pool which looked half decent. I have only seen one other hotel worse than this one.

The carpet was wet! They didn't have any towels in my room. They advertise free wifi but couldn't get the password. Everything in the room is broken... no lock in the bathroom door, the ac knob is missing, the doors on the tv cabinet are busted off. Shoulda checked here first!!

I feel this Motel has gotten a bad rap. Out of purely budgetary concerns, we stayed here because it was so cheap in spite of the bad online reviews we read. It is not for uptight suburbanites, but there is something charming about it. I feel like they could should a Jim Jarmusch movie here. The rug in our room was stained but other than that, it was very comfortable and cute. You do feel l ike you are in another era, it does have a fading beauty to it, i guess it is Art Deco. The cable and air conditioner worked fine and there was a fridge. The pool looked clean. We went during the week off season so probably much cheaper than usual, which is maybe why we were more pleased than other people. Artsy bohemians will love it and laid back people who appreciate a bargain.

Our room wasn't as bad as some of these reviews. We had room 102 which was clean and without a carpet, but very sparse, yet a clean bed was all that we were really looking for, hence the 2 stars(although the roof of the bathroom was MOLDY!!). You have to plug in all the lights and such when you walk in, our curtains kept randomly going up, the refrigerator didn't work, and asking the girl at the front desk for the wi-fi password was like asking for a cup of blood from her mothers still-beating heart. At check-out there was a different receptionist who was much nicer. The "breakfast" consisted of some instant coffee, a couple mini-donuts, and a loaf of bread that you could make toast from (although I wouldn't trust that toaster at all). They are impossible to get through to via telephone, the computer and the printer in the front office don't work, and there were a couple nights we had to park outside the gait due to lack of parking. Because they have a strict no-refund policy I would recommend looking at the room before you give them your credit card.
