One night, pretty well sold by Lonely planet, so regarding its location we decided to give it a chance... The dirtiest room ever seen, pretty much everything broken or u/s, a constant feeling of insecurity, a dirty looking strip club next door and lots of people hanging around at all time... Few blocks down the road are a couple of...

First, they checked us into a room that was not cleaned. It looked like guests were still staying there. The carpet was dirty, the shower head mold growing on it. When I asked the hotel lobby person for an extra pillow she wouldn't give me one. She said only 2 pillows per bed were allowed. Can you believe it!

I have nothing positive to say about this place. As soon as I walked in the room, I noticed a mildew/musty smell. The blinds are broken and don't close completely, so I've had to change in the bathroom for privacy. The remote control for the tv is missing, and the A/C unit has only one setting at 60 degrees. You...

Some of the other reviews on here are ridiculous. If you look up Miami Beach and choose the cheapest one, of course it's not going to be as nice as a 350/night hotel. It is totally fine for the price. Right off the main road, lots of stuff nearby. Microwave and mini fridge in room, did NOT have bed bugs....

Room was spacious. Bathroom and counter tops were clean. BUT..... the bed sheets were old looking and had multiple cigarette burn holes on them, I asked for new sheets and the housekeeper brought what looked like an airplane blanket and said thats all I could have. That there was nothing else. The room had literally one towel. I asked multiple...

Just picture a woman pacing back and forth on a wall directly across the street at all hours! Other guests include anything from physically fit, youthful northern European couples to folks who look like they just stepped out of a penitentiary. We were originally put into a dark, dingy room and immediately complained, without getting obnoxious. We were given a...

I was a bit skeptical after reading the reviews, but my friends and I just needed a place for the night and the price was great. The staff was nice and checked us in no problem. The room had two beds. The rooms were big and clean and we all slept comfortably. They have fresh coffee and muffins for breakfast....

You get what you pay for. This is a no frills hotel, but they have a nice size pool, the rooms are clean and staff is friendly. The breakfast is coffee and muffins which are ok but for the price that we paid you can't beat it. The area is not the best but we felt safe because there is...
