For the price, it met all expectations...

Except for the UNDISCLOSED roomsafe fee, ($2 per day and did NOT use the safe), which is charged upon check-out, all was positive... ALL charges should be disclosed upon check-in or during the booking procedure. This is a suspiciously unfair practice and I will contact my credit card company to remove those charges!

What was expected.

Even after reading many negative reviews regarding this hotel I thought I would give it a try. I agree with the positive reviews that this hotel is what one could expect for this price -which I feel was a good deal. The airport shuttle driver mentioned that this used to be a "Best Western" hotel and it very much shows that the new owners are not big into maintenance. Still, all I needed was a place to stay for a long layover (23 hours) and this place worked out just fine.

This hotel is not far from the airport and does have shuttle service but only between 8:00am and 9:00pm.

Poor to worse than poor.

I have read and reread my description and can find nothing inappropriate. I can only assume that you do not want an honest appraisal.

WORST Miami Hotel

the rooms were very humid. The a/c didn't work and there was mold. The bed always looked like they hadn't been washed, it had hair all over. There was spider webs everywhere. We asked for room change but they refused. We left immediately and they also refused to give us all or money back.

If you want the Hilton... Pay for the Hilton! If you want comfort, value & nice location, this is it

My husband & I went here to escape for the weekend..... We had a lovely time. Our room on the 4th floor was the handicapped room which was spacious and had lovely wood floors. Very private feel. It was clean and the staff was helpful & friendly. The knobs in the shower were a little tricky but so what..Oh & the breakfast was lousy... But we made up for it later! The walk into Sunset Place and surrounding area were great! I recommend the Greek restaurant... Can't recall the name but it's right on the corner passed CVS. Enjoyed browsing Z Gallerie & went to the movies. All in all it was well worth it! The pool area is lovely too bad the water was chilly.... To be expected in February. Oh! & the elevator ride is nice too! ****Dont let the bad reviews deter you! As I said..... If you want the Hilton, pay for the Hilton. Cheers!
