This place rents out the ninth floor for events, leaving those of us unlucky enough to be on the eighth floor listening to pounding bass music until midnight while trying to sleep. When I called the desk to complain, they said they couldn't do anything because the event had paid for the space. I informed them that I too had...

Hello George D, Sorry that the 9th floor caused some noise issue. We have the events close down at midnight. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

First thing, the staff is wonderful. It rained pretty much our entire stay, so we didn't get to use the pool or mini golf course. It's a little bit dated, and could use a good make over in the rooms. Overall, it's close the stadium and it's affordable.

Booking a room late at night was totally unplanned but the desk clerk was very nice and honest. This place was renovated but the renovation is extremely well done. With a casino and the Hard Rock stadium nearby, business can't go wrong for them. The name doesn't ring any bells but don't let that fool you, the rooms were VERY...

First and foremost, the front desk agent that works over night and tries to cover his sleeves of tattoos with his sweaters is bluntly rude! I did not feel welcomed at all. I felt more like I can not wait until it was time to check out. He is not helpful at all. He nonchalantly refers you to management whom...

Hello Shayla D, I am sorry for your bad experience. Our night Audit Brandon is a very courteous employee so I am a bit shocked to hear of this behavior. Management is always here to help so I am not sure why you couldn't get a hold of us. As far as the smell, not sure exact place this was...

There is a party room on the top floor where they blast music all night. The person at the front desk told me that everyone stays up past midnight and I should get over it. For $100 per night, I should be able to sleep anytime I want.

Hello, The hotel had a banquet going on that ends at midnight. I do not think the front desk told you to get over it but said it would get over at midnight. We are budget friendly and for 100 bucks we surely think we're worth it! Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

This hotel is overpriced and lacks any decent facilities. It was dirty and the corridors smelt terrible! My bedroom was not cleaned and I was given attitude when I call reception to task for it to be cleansing! Breakfast was a joke!

We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon. We kicked off the trip with a Miami game and this was close to the stadium. The outside of the hotel and the lobby were promising.
