Stayed here pre cruise and flew into MIA. Called the hotel and they said shuttle would be at terminal 10? or something, which was a bit of a walk with much luggage but not a problem. Van showed up fairly soon. They have courtesy transportation within 5 miles, shuttle from the airport, and to the cruise. It is an old...

There are so many negative reviews of this hotel, but it is fine if you know what to expect. The staff were very nice - hotel is BASIC and under a bit of renovation. Yes, the pool is unheated, but so is the pool at The Biltmore where our family was staying - and they paid over $400 a night!...

Hotel staff behind check in desk wearing street clothes. Front desk never answered phone when you called from your room. Houskeeping did not show up for 2 days after repeatedly calling. Room door repeatedly malfunctioned and we got locked out. Houskeeping accidentally locked bathroom door and janitor had to pick the lock. All wall and floor lights had broken switches...

Advertised as the best kept secret in Miami I can now understand why. This hotel used to be the Best Western but now appears to be independently run. The hotel itself appears to be quite nicely laid out, but there is little evidence of any recent expenditure on upkeep and therefore the whole property gives an impression of being run...

The smell of damp when you first walk in hits you, the unfriendliness of the reception staff was...

This is an okay hotel for the money. I paid about $80 for one night on hotels.com. The pictures shown are not current, the hotel is a little run down, the ceiling was leaking from the air conditioner and the pool is definately not heated. Besides this it was okay for one night,we stayed to catch a cruise the next...

My family and I stayed there for just one night, but from beginning to end it was the most horrible experience ever. The rooms are old and smell like mold, the AC leaks all night and when is not to cold is way to hot. The bed and sheets are old and smell old, the bathroom looks old and nasty;...

The hotel looks very nice from the outside. It's in a decent neighborhood, close to lots of shops and restaurants. I didn't really know what to expect for a room paying that little money for it. I can honestly say it was a nice surprise. The room was spacious and clean. The walls were a little dirty. The room smelled...
