Renovated in 2009, Motel Bianco is located in the heart of Miamis Modern Design District. Surrounded by a variety of culinary delights, our Boutique Miami Motel uniquely combines the concept of the classic American drive-up motel with trendy interior decoration and ambience. But what makes Motel Bianco truly unique is that our neighborhood has become the new hotspot of Miami, and we have immersed ourselves in the local scene and made lots of friends nearby so that our guests can enjoy everything that the area has to offer

Dining

News Lounge
Within walking distance: News Lounge is the place to go for younger travelers who are looking for some local Miami nightlife. News Lounge doesnt even open until 5pm and they usually close between 1 and 3am, depending on how the scene is. Whether you want to sit outdoors in their large outdoor patio or inside in the video bar, The News Lounge will not disappoint you if youre looking for some great drinks and bar food.
Soyka
Within walking distance of the hotel. We remember when Soyka first opened over ten years ago back in 1999. The story goes that Mr. Soyka originally bought the location to store his classic automobile collection, but then decided to open a restaurant! At the time the surrounding neighborhood was not as popular as it is today, but people flocked from all over Miami because the atmosphere and culinary experience at Soyka was so outstanding. Try the Crab Cake starter with the Spicy Remoulade Sauce, and the burgers and sandwiches are fantastic. Soyka also offers a few vegetarian and healthy dining options as well.
Sushi Siam
Within Walking Distance: If youre looking for a slightly more upscale dining experience, head to Sushi Siam for sensational Japanese and Thai dishes with a modern ambience. Choose from Sushi Siams extensive sushi menu selection, and even sit at the sushi bar and watch your sushi as it is prepared with the freshest ingredients Miami has to offer. For those who arent crazy about sushi, we highly recommend the Pad Thai. Nobody does it like Sushi Siam

Location is the only plus!

The motel was quite basic in its amenites: 1. The blinds wouldn't close completely and people outside could see you (and vice-versa) 2. Bathroom was so old and pathetic with: a. walls peeling off b. door not locking properly c. walk-in shower cubicle that was so small and inconvenient d. and yes, obviously no bath tub! 3. Internet wasn't working in the room even though it was supposed to. 4. Refrigerator wasn't working. 5. No microwave. The only plus was the breakfast area/lounge (that you see in the picture) and it was good!

Clean and simple

The people were nice, and the hotel was very basic, nothing notable. A good location to go to beaches, Miami Zoo, and Everglades National Park.

Christmas Trip

This is not a three stars hotel and it over charges as well. The room is small and noise. You can heard car sound and people walking outside. No hair dryer.

If the pictures where recent...

Waited about 20 minutes to check in. Staff on phone with "supervisor". 10.00 deposit for remote to T.V. Do I need to say more? Pay 25.00 more for the crowne plaza.

Nice ,simple

The motel was clean and newly renovated but weary basic, simple, and small. Nothing extra (no napkins, no shampoo...) It was nice for the price . In the morning free breakfast bagels, dounguts, yogurt, juice, café, apples, that was nice

We got what we paid for!

The place is as listed previously...a decent place to sleep...only thing that we didnt like much is there is a deposit for everything from the remote to the tiny TV to the iron...I suppose given the location it should have been expected. I probably wont stay there again but it served its purpose!
