Good for quick visits

The Best Miami hotel was alright. It could have been better but when I first got their they had to change my room twice because the first one wasn't clean and then the second one had a bad smell. They had a continental breakfast every morning and the free shuttle service was very convenient. It is not the place to go for a vacation but if you are looking to stay in a place for a weekend, it's a great place.

Good Value

The Best Miami Hotel is a good value for your money. The rooms are clean and well kept. The bedding is very simple but comfortable. Not much in way of eating at the hotel and the breakfast provided leaves alot to be desired. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance.

Good Location

The Best Miami Hotel offers free shuttle from the Miami International Airport and to the Port of Miami. The location of the Hotel was in walking distance of a mall and other restaurants to eat at. The price was fair for a one night stay and they did offer continental breakfast. I had a King Deluxe room which was awesome.

Friendly, but had maintenance issues

The Best Miami Hotel is located in a nice part of town and is convenient to all the major tourist sites of Miami. Overall, the staff was very friendly, courteous, and helpful during my stay. The biggest negative was the fact that there were several maintenance issues including a slow-to-flush commode, slow-to-drain sink, a non-working TV set, and a telephone which didn't allow me to retrieve messages left by my friends. The room had a musty smell when the air conditioner wasn't running and had no heat. The carpet was in bad shape as well. The restaurant on site was exorbitantly priced ($30+ entrees). Because I didn't spend much time at the hotel, I was able to work around these problems.

Clean and safe, with personality.

I was pleasantly surprised by this one. [...] The room was clean, even though it was a "smoking" room - which we didn't mind anyway because we both smoke. The a/c and heater both worked. The shower was AWESOME; super hot and powerful. There was a somewhat noticeable mold aroma in certain areas but I used to live in Hawai'i and you just get used to that sort of thing in humid climates. The parking structure was a multi-floor garage, and while it didn't seem like it was being monitored, I felt safe keeping my rental there for the weekend. The restaurant and bar were open. While I don't think that french fries necessarily go with breakfast, I would say that the omelette was not inedible. (For lunch or dinner, try the Havana Spice Cafe down the street, the grouper with creole sauce was AMAZING!) The bar in the hotel has a decent selection, what with my favorite gin (Hendricks) and a reasonable Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Prices were a bit high, but it was worth it for the convenience and atmosphere. The staff was pleasant, accomodating, and even pretty personable. If you don't like the sterile, empty hotel chains that seem to generally monopolize these type of websites, then this hotel is for you; charming, inexpensive, and unique.

An Experience

The Best Hotel was a very friendly place, the staff was hospitable, but unfortunately I had to change rooms twice during my 3 day stay, once because the carpeting was moist and secondly due to no air conditioning in the second room. The 3rd room finally had everything. The front desk was very quick in securing me other accommodations and tried to make my stay as pleasant as possible

If Only For A Night

The staff at the Best Miami Hotel was great. Wasn't located in the best area but I only needed the room for one night. There was a leak in the bathroom ceiling.
