“Fine for the Price and our Purposes”
Reviewed October 17, 2006

We ended up at this hotel when the hotel we had originally booked claimed we had not booked more than one night and could not accomodate us (The St. Michel). We were there for a Parents' Weekend at the Univ. of Miami. We called this hotel from the St. Michel and were accomodated at a price of $80/night (before taxes). We had a large room with a king size bed. This is not a luxury hotel, but unlike some of the other reviews, we found it clean. Our TV was not working and they replaced it immediately. Even though our room overlooked the street, it was very quiet. If you are a non-smoker, make sure you request a non-smoking room. Also, wifi internet was free. (A former review complained of being charged too much for internet access).
The hotel is on Ponce de Leon and mid way between the University and the airport---about a 15 minute drive to either. There is a Greek restaurant off the lobby. The breakfasts were so-so, but we had a nice dinner there. The hotel has free parking and a pool. It's your basic motel, but pretty good for the price and location.

I chose this hotel because it was within walking distance of a business meeting I had to attend. What a mistake! This is the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in. Camping would be a better choice. The hall ceiling was dripping, the room smelled like vomit or spoiled milk, there were roaches, and the carpeting looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in years - it was so dusty. The hotel is dirty and poorly kept. This is not a deal.

I don(t recommand this place.
"The lift smells something died". The pool is located between cars of the parking.
No charm at all.

Stayed at this hotel in Coral Gables in January 2005. It's in a quiet safe location that is also convenient for the airport and most of Miami's main attractions are within a 20 mimute drive. Hotel is in good conditon with big, well equipped rooms, well maintained. Restaurant is decent enough (though there are no others within easy walking distance) Staff okay if not particularly friendly or helpful. Internet access costs are outrageous, otherwise it is a good value stay.
