Excellent value, good location

Rooms were clean. Laminate flooring gave cleaner feel to room than having old carpet. Beds were clean though not the most comfortable. Staff very courteous and helpful. There is a nice pool (outdoor), an okay workout room typical of motel/hotels. My only complaint was the free continental breakfast.... Consisted of plastic wrapped honey buns and the like... The sort which come from a vending machine. Also had terrible coffee, ok orange juice and some cold cereal. Would stay here again, excellent value and clean.

Needs work

Chosen by price, room was very clean and staff was extremely diligent. Had some trouble with the ligths on first night, was taken care off promptly, minor trouble in bathroom, very minor. Should consider arranging better WIFI for hotel, can not use in room , only by front desk area, if need to work on computer you have to be at lobby. Otherwise decent hotel for the money.

Great value for a night or two

The service at the hotel was excellent and the staff was very accommodating. They kept our luggage safe and allowed us to lounge by the pool since we arrived several hours prior to check-in time. The room was clean and comfortable, especially for just one night. The free shuttle transportation from Miami International Airport to the hotel and then from the hotel to the sea port terminal were the main reason we booked this hotel. The only complain we have is about the "continental breakfast". They only offer packaged danish, cereal, coffee, and orange juice. We expected better food options for the price we paid. Other than poor breakfast options the Best Miami Hotel is a good hotel for the price. *Also, be prepared to pay a $2.00 fee per day for the safe in your room, regardless if you want to use the safe or not.

Just for a night

The hotel was not so bad for a night. We use it as bridge to our cruise, and many other people like us. This is because of free shuttle service from airport and to cruise dock. Our room was clean, the bathroom very small, but clean, too. Smell of humidity is everywhere, less in our room that is on the balcony.

I guess you get what you pay for

I have not had problems personally, but I have witnessed people complaining to the manager about a stolen item from their room (it was a cosmetic product). The manager did not respond in a way a guest of the hotel would expect him to: he said that he understands but cannot accuse anyone of anything. It seemed like there is nothing that can be done. He did, however, refund them for one night's stay. The staff was nice to me, though.
