To start with I paid $225 per night to stay in this motel (not a hotel). It is equivalent to a Motel 6. Immediately I noticed it had a very large black stain (looked like an ink stain) on the fitted bed sheet (see photo). Then I noticed immediately when I went into the bathroom there were no curtains in the bathroom which was up against another building with windows looking directly into the bathroom. I panicked and found the only items in the room that were big enough to cover the windows, which were two queen sized pillows (see photo). There were only 2 bath towels for a room that accommodates 4 people and no hand towels or face clothes. There were also no tissues in the room. I had to use toilet paper for things you would use tissues for, like make-up etc. There was a microwave and refrigerator (not defrosted in months), but no coffee pot or coffee which was a bit of a bummer. It also only had one small bar of soap which was gone after my first shower and I had to request (beg) for additional tiny bars of soap. This is definitely a 1 Star Motel. It is not worth the money unless you are attending Ultra Miami, which I was. It was the cheapest hotel I could find within 5 miles of the event. The first night I was there, which was a day before the event, there was an extremely loud party in the room next to me where it sounded like they were throwing furniture against the walls, literally. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are ok with seriously substandard accommodations for $225 a night and you are attending Ultra and want to be within 5 miles of the event.…
SO MUCH MOLD ODOR! Just like the other reviewrs mentioned. There's obviously no picture of the mold smell so you're just going to have to trust us, Its so strong you can taste it if you breathe in through your mouth. I told the check-out attendant about it when he asked us about our experience and he acted surprised about it... 🙄 i'm pretty sure he's the one that answers these reviews so he already knew. The floors really were dirty, just like other reviews mentioned, there were big pieces of debri on the floor right when we entered, like the cleaning staff didn't even try. The attendant at check-in really didnt speak a lick of english, like the other reviews mentioned, but he was nice and helpful. You pay for the hotel but you have to pay to park and it's THEIR parking lot. 😵💫 luckily, it was only $5/night. The beds are horrible, the springs make noise when you push on them. The plus side: There's a tiny TV but it has all the steaming platforms logged in and enabled for you. Mini fridge and microwave. The location is awesome, 24hr dennys & mcdonalds right across the street. If you're going ro charge ober $200 for a room you HAVE TO DO BETTER.…
The rooms have been remodeled and are very nice. Good design. We had issues with our toilet not flushing. An extra blanket and bath mat would have been helpful. There is now a minimal charge for parking. It is obvious the hotel is making improvements. The location is very convenient in a urban setting. A very nice room for budget travelers.
They were doing works in the hotel, starting from 7am to 7pm... That's too early, and maybe they should close while doing such works. We had a room with two beds. One had a broken bedspring, the other one was simply too old, so in either case you would roll to the center of the bed...
For those living on a small budget and don't expect the best of everything in a motel, this one is a great choice and very close to Miami Beach. Located on Biscayne blvd, it's close to many places to eat and shop. The staff are very efficient and available. Street noise is minimal even though it's near a major intersection. Room has a slight mildew smell, but that can be expected in a tropical environment. That's the only negative here.
