Great location but everything else not so much

The good: (1) Great location. It is right across the street from the outdoor mall and IMAX theater. (2) The price. Paid a very low price considering the location. The bad: (1) Finding parking wasn't easy. Upon checking in and asking for help in locating the parking lot, a rude staff member spoke to us in a very condescending manner. Checking in as well, the same staff member spoke in a condescending tone. (2) The bathroom lacked facial tissue despite having a dispenser. Inside the bathroom/shower had dirty foots prints. (3) Most noticeably, the room was freezing cold. Despite changing the thermostat to 80, it still was in the 50s. (4) Lastly, there is free WIFI, but NOT within the rooms. You are required to go into the lobby to access the wifi.

You get what you pay for.

Very affordable place and great service. However they have no heaters in the hotel, the showers drip and are moldy, and there was hair on the sheets and pillows. Besides that it is ok and is very close to Coconut Grove and Coral Gables.

"Excelent location,noises all night long

The price was excelent, but the room was in front the ice machine and there was no acustic isolation. Besides, the apartment on the right side had a nonsleeping person...so he/she decided to stay all night long with the television set very loud. We got crazy.

Expected more for the price

On the website looks nice but when we arrived it looked abandoned. It has stained walls, wall paper hanging, basically it needs to be remodeled!

looks are decieving!

It was nothing that I read about. First when we got there they charged a $50 fee in case the room was messed up. We got to our room and the light was broken and the phone was broken. They moved us to another room. Bathroom was dirty, the floors, were dirty, the beds made noises. Ice machine was broken, vending machines were broken, and there are NO restaurants or bars at the hotel. The good things are that everything is really in walking distance and the people we met that were staying their as well were so nice!

Basic

From the description I expected the hotel to be much closer to the airport. The supposed free shuttle service only ran a few times a day and was not running when we arrived. Was forced to take a cab costing us $30 - not something we expected. The shuttle to the airport the next day left only at certain times and went to the cruiseport first to drop off passengers. Took a lot longer than expected - good thing we had extra time fefore the flight. The room was average but the fridge was rusty. Would not recommend the site especially if you are flying in and expect to save time and money by using it as convenient to the airport. Would not use the facility again.

Graduation stay

The family was in Miami for my sons graduation from the University of Miami . It was a very good location. Very close the the U. Room was a little small. The bathroom needed to be cleaned. Could not get wifi in the room. Had to go outside the room to get connected to wifi. But it was a a great location and it served the purpose while we were there.
