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.

Slow Decline to Falling Hotel

If you stay at this hotel do not expect it to be of standards of the Best Western. Areas of the hotel require a lot of maintenance attention. The lobby and pool area are beautiful. The living conditions of the hotel are on a slow decline to becoming hazardous. Many of the appliances in my room were damaged, broken or didn't work. The rug was filthy and stained. Many of the electrical sockets were without electricity. The elevator was out of service and doesn't appear it will ever work again. It is very close to the University of Miami and US 1.

It was just ok

The hotel itself was not that impressive. I did like that it was quiet but pretty far out of the way. The main reason I chose to stay here was because of the free shuttle to the hotel and to the ship. The ride from the airport to the hotel was a taxi because, even after calling, didn't show up. The room was a little dirty. The bathtub was not very clean and the room smelled a little moldy. I think it served it's purpose for us for one night but would not stay here for an extended period of thim.

Broken AC

friendly staff. Rooms could be cleaner. The main problem, is the air conditioning which is stuck at a very cold settling. It makes for a very uncomfortable night.But, the price is right.
