You get what you pay for.

Very affordable place and great service. However they have no heaters in the hotel, the showers drip and are moldy, and there was hair on the sheets and pillows. Besides that it is ok and is very close to Coconut Grove and Coral Gables.

"Excelent location,noises all night long

The price was excelent, but the room was in front the ice machine and there was no acustic isolation. Besides, the apartment on the right side had a nonsleeping person...so he/she decided to stay all night long with the television set very loud. We got crazy.

Best kept secret?...better left kept

This hotel was ok for the price, but it still wasn't very cheap considering it's condition. It's very obviously old, and needs repairs. The pool area was nice and the lobby looked nice on the inside, but the rooms were a little scary. Parking was pricey. The staff at the front desk was short. The "continental breakfast" was literally just bread, butter, coffee, orange juice, and water. That's it. So although, it's cheap for what I could find in Miami, but it was over-priced for what you get. The best part about it was that is was close (within walking distance) to a great mall in South Miami and a Metro stop that will easily take you to Downtown.

Good location

The only good thing about Best Miami Hotel is the location. If you have business in Coral Gables, this hotel is very well located and near the University of Miami. Other than that, yes, it is cheap, but so is the service and the staff. The day I checked in they wouldn't let me in the room until 3 PM (I had to take a very early flight in and had not been able to sleep so was looking forward to entering my room earlier) although the hotel had available rooms. Then, when I checked in I called them about the bathtub where the faucet was leaky and had the tub looking just used. Also there were some paint-like stains in it. When the maintenance guy came in he looked at it and just said that's not coming off, sorry. So I asked to get another room and he said he couldn't give me another room since that stain was not reason enough to change. One other thing I disliked a lot is the fact that every day I had to pick up at least 3 or 4 flyers that were shoved in my room underneath the door for pizza and food delivery.

looks are decieving!

It was nothing that I read about. First when we got there they charged a $50 fee in case the room was messed up. We got to our room and the light was broken and the phone was broken. They moved us to another room. Bathroom was dirty, the floors, were dirty, the beds made noises. Ice machine was broken, vending machines were broken, and there are NO restaurants or bars at the hotel. The good things are that everything is really in walking distance and the people we met that were staying their as well were so nice!

Good luck getting sheets.

After informing the front desk that I would be checking in late, I arrived in my room -- mind you, it was the coldest day in Miami in one hundred years! -- to no blankets on my bed. It took five calls to the front desk and a bit of a threatening attitude towards a generally unpleasant desk clerk to have two extra sheets delivered to my room. Sheets -- not blankets. I spent the entire night freezing (as there was no heat in the room to begin with) and checked out early the next day. Would not recommend this place to anyone who expects quality service.

Everglades is about 30m away. This is a good place to stay if you want to visit. US-1 (into the Keys) runs along the front road. Very easy to access.
