This hotel is really well-priced, but be aware that it is not a four star hotel and not really walking distance to South Beach. Having said that, I think many of the previous reviews were unfair and this review is in light of it's great value price for Miami.
Pros: All the basics are there it is safe, clean, staff was professional, air con, swimming pool on site, free parking, close to North Miami Beach and nice parks - you can totally walk to a great beach that is not very crowded in 5 minutes if you just go due east a few blocks, which could be great for families or anyone just looking to relax. If you go north ten blocks you'll find a few shops and restaurants, a pharmacy, etc. It's very much away from the fray and noise of South Beach.
Cons: Fewer good restaurants in walking distance (George's Italian on 72nd St is amazing though, wine deals on Tuesdays, 15 min walk south - recommended!), need to drive or cab it to South Beach for going out (we took one cab late at night for 21$), a lot of the on site parking has you backing out onto a main thoroughfare right after a bend (yikes)
Tips: There are a few buses, which only set you back 2$ if you're not in a hurry. About 4 or 5 routes take you to South Beach in 30 minutes and they come every 10-15minutes during the day and every haf hour all night. There are some buses to downtown too although we didn't use them. I would also recommend paring around the side of the hotel on 86 St NOT on Harding Ave itself, as it is a bit tricky backing out into traffic with poor visibility and traffic going quite quick. I mean, it is obviously doable but I personally hate backing out onto a busy road and there's a quieter side street so why stress!
