We just needed a room to stay the night, and this hotel was enough for that, is very cheap, but I think you could stay at something better if you do a good search online. The rooms are very very small and it smells like cigarette smoke.

We are consistently one of the lowest priced properties in the area and try to give you a great value for your money. Our rooms are small and are consistent with the price. We are a non smoking hotel so I will look into your concerns that the room smelled of smoke. Thank you for picking us to stay with....

Location is perfect, just 2 blocks from Bayside Marketplace and a nice café pavillon for having breakfast close by. The rooms are quite old and small but when you are just spending the nights there it is absolutely okay. You also got a fridge in the room. The staff at the reception is very attentive, friendly and helpful.

This hotel is ideal for people looking for a cheap place to spend a day or two in Miami. A short walk to the bayside shopping centre and pretty much in the centre of downtown. The rooms are small and have the basics, but it was exactly what we needed for our trip. Uber pool cost us $3 each way...

What can I say about this place "we was desperate" after being scammed at a close by condo. We had been traveling for over 23 hours (from Australia) after checking a couple of other close by hotels with no luck as they were full we were stuck with this hotel. Please do not stay here it is a dump, hard...

Worst experience and the owners want your payment but have no respect for you. The entire family live in the rooms of the hotel. We stayed for a week and watched how owners were disrespectful of Islanders and Hispanics with their characterization of those individuals. Find another hotel with a cleaner environment, better rapport, and are concerned for the appeal...

Grateful to find the time to write this review that I must say is long overdue. I researched the establishment and ratings were questionable but also outdated. Given the location that is hard to match it was definitely worth a visit. Immediately I was won over. The ongoing remodeling of the hotel is fabulous and yet still keeping it's classic...

My husband and I stayed here the day we got off of our cruise and we looked at the pictures first before reserving. We thought that this place was a really nice hotel from the looks of it.
