I stayed on the 2nd floor, which STUNK of mold. There were creepy old guys hanging out in the hallway, which made me very uncomfortable as a single female traveler, and the hallway was extremely dark and filthy (as was the clunky old elevator). The room had been cleaned, but was still very dirty (carpet stains, very old and worn bedding) plus it had extremely dated furniture and bathroom, and very odd photos on the walls of semi-naked couples. After 24 hours I had bug bites on my legs, and noticed house keeping did not change my bedding or towels, they just made the bed and folded everything up. The provided wi-fi did not work in my room at all, so I could only get access in the lobby. My colleagues stayed on the 3rd floor, which fortunately did not smell as bad, but the A/C was very loud and did not cool down the rooms at all. The laundry for guests was also the laundry used by housekeeping, so it was only available for a very short time at the end of the day (and there are no laundromats close by). The staff on the front desk were generally quite rude and unhelpful. I checked out and went somewhere else after 2 nights, they do not offer any kind of refund. If you have to stay in Miami and absolutely cannot afford something else, then this place is in a great location, but if you have the money then just go somewhere else. If you have children, PLEASE do not stay here.
