2-day Stay

Even though it was not too expensive to stay here for 2 nights, I felt that some services were lacking. I waited sooo long just to check in, there were no laundry facilities, which would greatly help those staying in the hotel, and the internet wireless connection was poor that most would only get a connection, if lucky, if they went downstairs to the main lobby.

My stay at Best Miami

So many eat outs option within walking distance. Nearby shopping malls. Free shuttle service to nearby locations, which is unbelivable in this economy.

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.

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!

Much needed time away

Location was perfect for our trip. Room was very clean. Was glad the room had a refrigerator, but do wish it had had a microwave in the room also. Liked the fact there was a simple breakfast each morning and we didn't have to go out.

Very decent vacation

Nice hotel and good room. There was not WiFi in the room, The breakfast was ok for the price given. The location was good, and although there was plenty of parking space (was outside of Miami) the parking at the hotel was not for free.
