This place is a complete dump! And, even more ridiculous is that it cost as much as other hotels in the area that are much nicer! It was filthy dirty - our clean white socks were filthy on the bottoms within minutes of putting them on and walking around. The kitchen had very old and dated appliances. The room was small. We were stuck next to the elevator as there weren't other rooms available for a family. (We were staying there as accommodations were booked for us by a prospective employer for my husband and our request for a suite given we had our young children with us - we didn't choose the place and CLEARLY they did not know the condition of it - the promptly moved us once we informed them of the condition!) Additionally, the railroad runs just behind the hotel, not even a 1/4 mile from the property, with several trains passing throughout the day/night.

Additionally, the staff were just flat out rude. My husband called the night before to see if they had cribs (not knowing what kind of place it was, of course!) and the individual working was too busy talking to a co-worker to actually listen and answer his questions. We found the staff to behave similarly upon our arrival and during our stay. Not even so much as a smile or hello when passing through the front lobby. More of a glare from them to be honest!

Finally, the area near the elevator on the ground floor smelled really bad as well.

Just don't waste your time or money staying here!!!!

I stayed at Extended Stay at 4610 South Miami Blvd.

The rooms (i tried 2 diff. ones) were filthy. The dishers were put back with food and grease on them. The cabinets had some kind of sticky greasy substance on them.

There was still trash from previous people under the bed, under the coffee table and side table. The couches are all missing side pillows.

The shower curtain has no liner and is moldy. They do not provide tissues as do other hotels (including other Ex. Stays). I saw some tissues on the cleaners cart, so I think they are probably stealing them.

The cleaners slam the doors constantly while doing their pitiful job at cleaning. The walls are very, very thin. You have to hear all the noise in the surroundind area.

The trash cans are left in the stair well with the over 90 degree heat and are checked maybe weekly, leaving rotting garbage and a horrible smell in the stairwells.

The 3rd floor is devoted to smokers and the rooms smell bad.

Based on what I heard, the staff knows the cleaners suck and laugh about it. The overhyped breakfast is a few lenders bagels and bruised apples.

If you can afford a little more for Springhill suites, it would be well worth it to avoid this lousy hotel.
