“Decent Place with Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Miami Lakes seemed like a nice place and it was. The hotel eventhough it has nice decoration in the rooms looked kinda of old. Nonetheless friendliness of staff was awesome and food was also good. Eventhough we had a continental breakfast it had big servings and tasted good. The door´s hinge lock or latch was loose and we could hear a little of the outside noise so we didn´t feel 100% safe and the pool was out of service but otherwise the attention was simply excellent. We would probably return.

Man, this place was a disappointment. It's a really cool facility, with a pool in the middle of several separate buildings. With lots of lush greenery, the courtyard is private and really nice. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms are great also, and they are very nice and spacious.

But, it seems like the rooms are really showing signs of neglect. First, no fridge? Isn't this basic by now? Also, the TV was not good - failed once, and then was kind of fuzzy (not HD, seemingly) when it did work. Other signs of missing maintenance: wall damage that has been patched (poorly) and not yet repainted, desk chair that tilts to the left (it's broken), a very slow shower drain, bedspreads with pulls and stains (eek!), access key failures (nobody's key could unlock the pool doors). Just lots of awkward moments in a 3-night stay.

Hotel is not far from downtown miami, like a 20 minute ride. Got an upgrade to a suite as I'm an IHG platinum, room was huge and bed was great. Some of the furniture has stains and the sofa is in not great condition. Shower was perfect. The only thing that was a little annoying is that the cleaning lady would park her trolley in the middle of the hallway, making it impossible to pass by either side of the trolley.

I booked two rooms for three nights. The rooms were both okay; perhaps, a little dodgy. All the rooms are very different, painted in "island" colors. The furniture was a jumble of cast-offs, nothing matched. Our room was a large suite. AC and bathroom were great. Eddy at the front desk is "top-notch", very helpful on two occasions.

The grounds are in need of help, fallen leaves about the pool area. Spider webs hanging off the eves. Two feral cats in the common area adjacent to the pool. No towels available in the pool area. The restaurant was dreadful. I usually avoid hotel restaurants in the US; but, we got in late, about 8:00 PM. We waited at least 30 minutes for a quesadilla and a club sandwich. Both were bordering inedible. Both were tepid. We were the only people eating at that time. The bartender was also running room service orders.

Management needs to step in and turn things around before we see this hotel on "Hotel Impossible"

Thank you Hotel Indigo for a pleasant experience. I look forward to more visits at your hotel. The front desk allowed me to have a late checkout at 130pm. The rooms were nice and the service was good. A spider web on the balcony was the only con. I recommend Hotel Indigo if you are looking for something different than a Holiday Inn type of hotel.

This is a quaint hotel. There is a welcoming lobby, and little restaurant/bar.

The hotel is set up with about 4 different buildings; some two floors high, some three floors high. My room was spacious. The room was however incredibly humid. We tried to adjust the thermostat often (stayed a week & a half). My clothes were damp/ wet... One day there was moisture on my watch that was on the nightstand. My books warped from the moisture too. Our room did not have a balcony or window that opened, so we couldn't figure out how to control that issue.

The pool area is cute and cozy.

I did like the landscaping too.

There's a free shuttle that takes you to Shula's Restaurant and the little town area. There are some restaurants, shops and a movie theatre in the area.
