“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Very nice hotel on the Bay..Rooms are dated but very clean...hostess staff in the bar/restaurant are rude and make you think twice before eating there...thank goodness the wait staff did not take lessons.

This hotel is very old and dated you enter from the outside so it should be called a motel. The elevator made horrible noises and when we came back from dinner it was out of order. We were grateful we didn't get stuck in it. The furniture is old, it was like a flash back to the 60's. I would not stay here again. I do thank the staff they were very nice.

Room Tip: Just don't stay here

We spent 3 nights here in December. The hotel is older, well kept and is located right on Biscayne Bay. It is one of the better priced hotels for the location in North Miami Beach. The room was very clean, comfortable bed and flat screen TV. Location is about 15 - 20 minutes from South Beach, Aventura and the new Gulfstream racetrack and shopping center. Parking is free. From I-95 you have to drive through an area that is a little low rent but then you cross over the bridge into North Bay Village and everything is fine. I would definitely recommend for a short stay or a layover.

For almost 20 years we stay about 2 weeks every year in this hotel. Never we feel the need to look for another. Arriving here is a sort of homecoming! We have known many employees for a long period. Beautiful hotel, nice location on the Biscayne Bay and free parking. The rooms and amenities are very good, like free high speed internet and good variety of breakfast,
Shuckers restaurant is on the premises.
Very friendly and efficient staff at the frontdesk and the housekeeping department.

We were a large group of friends that took 15 rooms for 3 nights early December. I stayed in a bayfront room with 2 queen beds which were very comfortable. The view of the Bay was just magnificent. The hotel staff were so helpful with all our needs. The free parking is a plus. It is a reasonable drive to Lincoln road and to south beach. The restaurant and bar (which is not operated by the hotel) was great with tasty reasonably-priced food and drinks. Free airport shuttle!!. A good place to stay in Miami.

Room Tip: Bayfront rooms although a little more expensive. Really worth it !!!!!

We stayed here two nights before our cruise out of Miami. The hotel is older but kept clean. Our room had two queen beds that were comfortable a flat screen TV, small microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom was smaller but fine. The location is good. Only took us about 15 to 20 min with traffic to get to South Beach. It was about the same to get to the Airport. We ate at the on premises restaurant which was good. We were happy with out stay. I was impressed on how clean the hotel was overall.
