For 80$ a bargain in Miami, didnt know what to expect. The room was ok and friendly staff. Shopping mall on walking distance. great bargain 10 car minutes from airport and the beach. Ask for a renovated room, pool is in the atrium / middle of the hotel with little or no sun.

The good: Hotel is in a good location, close to public transport, local restaurants and different shops/malls and attractions. The hotel itself seemed essentially clean in main areas and the pool/poolside bar was pleasant. The bad: Shuttle is very infrequent, only operates 6am-8pm. Ideally call ahead to request pickup form a specific door at the airport and expect to wait...

The staff was nice enough. The room was terrible. I complained about the roaches in the room and they did nothing about. Maybe they couldn't because all the rooms may have had this problem but in the very least address it. Unfortunately I had to stay the night for lack of time to find something else.

The biggest dump on earth. Owned and operated by Pegaso hotels, it's by far their worse. Not only do they NOT try to accommodate you if any issues. They act like you're inconveniencing them by asking them to provide the services they offer. The night time front desk clerk lied and said smoking was allowed on balconies after I complained...

Not too bad for the price. We weren't too far from the beach and we only a couple of minutes from Miami. Neighborhood was good and a mall just across the highway. Also easy to get to the train station. Rooms are a little dated but still not bad at all. Beds were comfortable and parking, while having to pay...

So before I start I have to say I did read all the reviews on here and still decided to go with this hotel. I really think some of these are exaggerated reviews. Now to start with as I came close to this hotel the look of it was very quaint looking. Then as I stepped in the place don't...

This was probably the worst hotel experience I've had since slumming hotels in college. I even upgraded to a king suite, which consisted on a king bedroom (bed wasn't too bad), but living room was only a desk and sofa, with creaky fake wood floors. Bathroom was small with mildew, rust, and no sink stopper. Could not turn hot water...

Location of the hotel to the University Of Miami was great and then after that it all goes down hill. When we entered our room, we noticed a strong smell of mold with a carpet piece placed in the doorway over the rotten wood flooring. Within the first 30 minutes of being in the room, we reported a large drip...
