“Overpriced bedbugs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

In south beach for the BCS National championship game. Bathroom was filthy, service was terrible and barely understood English. Also, we prepaid online via hotels.com yet they insisted upon getting a copy of all occupants driver's licenses and the payor's credit card, which upon check out they refused to relinquish or destroy. The guy at the desk stated to us and the other patrons in line that they keep it on file for security.??????? Also the couple ahead of us showed us the bed bugs bite they had from the night earlier. I would not recommend ever going there it seemed very sketchy from the first interaction with the front desk let alone the security risk with their keeping copies of credit card and licenses after payment was processed and approved.

i happily stayed here during art basel. the location was perfect - close to the fair, close to the beach, but off collins so i could avoid the late night crowds/noise. the rooms are pretty basic/not fancy, but mine was really clean and had everything i could need or want. the wifi was free and worked well, and the staff were friendly. if you're expecting a luxury hotel, go elsewhere, but if you want a good value for your money in the heart of south beach, this is the spot for you!
