Great value for your money.

You can not find a cleaner hotel in Miami for the price. The food service is terrible but there are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. You have a refrigerator and microwave in the room that help some. The beds have very simple linen but comfortable. If your are looking for luxury you will be disappointed but if you are looking for a nice clean hotel that is a great price than this is it.

A nice surprise

Looking for an inexpensive hotel in Miami can be a little scary. While this hotel was a 2 star, and only $50 per night, I was in for a pleasant surprise. This lovely old hotel must have been totally charming in "it's day", and it still maintains much of it's charm, although it is becoming a bit shabby. The rooms are clean, the hotel staff are exceptionally polite, and the surrounding neighborhood provides great eating establishments. It is near the metro, making travel around Miami convenient and inexpensive. O.K., so you have to be a bit of a romatic to see the charm, but it bears a second look.

Excellent time at Best Miami Hotel

First time to this hotel. Excellent service throughout. Very nice and friendly staff. Nice lobby area to hang out. Nice pool. Pool was constantly maintained by staff and kept clean. Room was spacious with king-size bed. The room looked to have been remodeled recently, not the best remodeling job, but nice hardwood floor and furniture. The bathroom was clean overall. The shower temperature wasn't steady, but overall okay. Great walking distance to local restaurants and the Sunset Place mall. Hotel provides complimentary shuttle service, but depending on how the traffic is, it could take up to 30 minutes for the shuttle to the airport to pick you up. The complimentary breakfast was minimal. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this hotel, and will return to it.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Find Sunset Place mall (within 3-5 min walk). Lots of good restaurants on the way there. I'd suggest checking out Sushi Maki. Also a few minutes in the opposite direction is a Jyokin (sp?) Japanese Buffet. I would recommend it highly.
