“Great location”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We stayed in the suite with another family prior to the departure of our cruise. The hotel was clean and had a great location right on the boardwalk and beach. It was a great value for the money. The pool was alittle small for the kids but the beach was very nice. I would recommend this hotel if you just need to stay for a few days. The hotel staff was very accomadating and helpful.

The only negative thing I would have to say was the other travelers that were very loud late at night in the hallways and the family upstairs that was jumping around.

My husband and I are frequent visitors to Miami Beach and have stayed at 4 other MB hotels multiple times. We made our plans late for this visit and since it was Easter week our choices were limited.

We read the reviews of this Hotel and arrived with open eyes and minds. Our experience, while not horrible, was not great. The other reviewers who commented on the strange odor in this hotel were right on target. It was awful. You could actually smell it outside the building as you approached. It was so strong in the hallway that I had to hold my breath as I went from the elevator to our room. We were staying on the "penthouse" level. Do NOT let that term conjure up any thoughts of "luxury". The carpet in all of the hallways was filthy and wrinkled!. Our room was clean and painted in cheerful colors. The bed, linens and mattress were fine. The room was small without a desk or enough outlets. There was a fridge and a safe in the closet. The bathroom was another story. It was awful! The shower curtain was "white" cotton and filthy! There was no plastic liner. The towels were so old and rough that I joked about the benefits of exfoliation! The floor was stained and the painted blue door very dirty. I could go on about it but I am sure you can imagine the rest.

The pool was not usable in my opinion. This small, cold (unheated) pool was set in a cracked mustard color painted patio. There were no umbrellas in the area of the lounge chairs. The few people who were sitting there seemed to be all smoking. The towels were supposed to be in a cabinet in this pool area. They are for the use of hotel guests for the pool and beach. Six attempts yielded us no towels by the end of the day. I asked at the front desk and was told to "just wait for them". I also had to request that the overflowing garbage left in the pool area from the night before, be removed.

The parking garage was also a disappointment. It was self parking at the cost of $26 per day. The garage was filthy and quite scary especially at night. It was a disgrace.

For $259 per night this hotel was NOT worth it at all. They attempted to charge us a $2 "Resort Fee" which we refused to pay. This is NOT a Resort and I will never return.

We were here last January for two weeks and decided to come again for 10 days at end of March. The location of the hotel is excellent and our room was very comfortable. And again, we were as happy with the hotel staff and services as we were in winter. We stayed in the hotel long enough to get to know people working there. We found very friendly personnel at the front desk, Tatiana, Celia, Christopher and the rest of the crew. Concierge Juan and Alex are always there to assist guests. Room cleaning by Yanila was exceptional, floor manager Mercedes was always there to help us. The rest of the staff was always pleasant. We are planning to come there again for our next winter vacations in December.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are the best!

Stayed at this location in one of the suites for a weeks stay during WMC. Room was very spacious. The room was basically 2 regular rooms converted to a suite. The 2 bathrooms and balconies worked out very well for our group. The hotel staff was very accomadating to all our needs and requests. Extra towels, toilet paper, cot and trash pick up were never a problem during our stay. The only complaint would be the odor in the hallways and that the beds and pull out sofa were the most comfortable. Also, a free continental breakfast would be nice. Location is excellent. Right across from the beach and a 25-30 min walk on the boardwalk to SoBe. Not too much going on in the immediate area of the hotel but everything is a quick cab or bus ride away. Our group would definitly stay here again.

Thanks

The hotel is very nice and well located; the room was really clean and well maintained.
Our maid Yanila did a great job having our room spotless every day. The room Manager Veronica comes to our room to greet us in person and to make sure we were having a good stay. Te customer service in this hotel is an A plus..!!! We will come back again in December.

Book this hotel on a package deal with Expedia. Due to the time constraint this hotel was the best option for affordability and location. Upon arrival I witnessed several other guest dealing with reservation issues and poor customer service. I was fortunate to experience a quick check-in with out hassle. The lobby was clean and nicely decorated however our room was outdated, with limited power outlets, unclean carpet, no counter space in the bathroom, and dim lighting. There is no heat available in the rooms, so a portable heater was brought in however it did not work so we had to request a 2nd one. Customer service overall is very poor with rude and unconcerned representatives. I would not recommend this hotel unless you need a quick overnight stay.

Basically, the hotel was very good. We had a room with an excellent view. The lack of on-site parking was not a big deal as we were always able to get street parking within a couple of blocks which saved a ton of money. My biggest "belly-ache" was the unheated pool which was a drag because we happened to be in Miami during a "cold snap" ie. 14-15 degrees centegrade. It warmed up in the PM but the stiff breeze off the Atlantic meant that ocean swimming was too uncomfortable hence the need for a HEATED POOL. This is the third trip to Florida ( three different places and hotels) in which the advertized heated pool did not in fact exist. I suspect that this cost saving measure is because of the economic crunch that the States is experiencing; but, they should not advertize a product they are not delivering.
