good deal for the money

Loved it overall-not a 5-star but very good overall. Courteous staff, nice pool, few people, good wi-fi connection, fridge and microwave are great. Second time at this hotel and planning the same for next trip. Breakfast and services improved since 2013.

Good

The hotel is good for that money in miami. There is required to pay 8 dollars for the park and 2 dollars for the safety. I think these cost should not be asked.

interesting courtyard (too cold to use, in Feb.)

Issues: toilet was flushing when I arrived at room. I managed to stop it. There is a slow leak (of water, I hope) onto the plastic-wood floor near the entry door inside the room. About a teaspoon in 12 hours. I shall tell the staff shortly. The threshold between the bathroom and entry area is off needs replacement. The beds sag. And yet... the room is large, quiet, and the interesting courtyard has a nice pool. (It is "outdoors," tho, and today is a record low temp. for Miami.) The breakfast includes Cheerios (etc.), toast, sausages, bananas, and an egg-like substance which, however, is not egg. Not bad for the price.

Overnight stay waiting for flight out

The hotel was located in the weirdest locations. the room we were given was small and dingy, we asked for a king they gave my husband and I a double bed! It was not the cleanest hotel.. But on a good note we were only there for 10 hours to sleep and catch our flight out of Miami.. we had a long layover
