used sheets, shuffled rooms

Would not recommend Mon, May 7, 2012
The room we get first was uncleaned and we asked about another one. So we've got another key, changed clothes, keeping some stuff in chest of drawers and gone to the ocean beach. But what was our confusion when we returned at the evening and found our suite closed and key not working! On a reception was another man who haven't found our check-in to that room in computer. And our room appeared to be already occupied by another guest!!1 It took another half an our to get our things out of that number and to get a new suite instead. I would recommend to add another ten bucks and book a bit more sane place to spend a night near the Miami Beach.

Bad Customers Service

Would not recommend Tue, Jan 24, 2012
It was a horrible experience with Motel Blu. Our room was not ready for over six hours. On our initial arrival, we were told that the room was being cleaned and would be ready by 3pm. We returned at 4pm and the woman at the front desk, Nicole, gave us the key to our assigned room. The room had not been cleaned from the prior guest. The beds were not made and the bathroom was filthy, the room smelled of feces and urine. At 8pm when we called the front desk to lodge a complaint about the unclean room, Nicole answered and was verbally abusive to me on the phone and said to me, "If you don't like it, check out" and I asked to speak to the supervisor and she told me that there is no supervisor available and I should call back between 10am and 3pm. I then called back and a man named Philip answered and when I asked for a supervisor, he identified himself as the manager, and then later stated he was not the manager. He was very apologetic. He then changed our room to Room at 8:30pm. The new room had broken ceiling lamps/lights. For these reasons stated above, I want my money back for this day due to the 6 1/2 hours I was not able to get my room I had paid for. The next day, I spoke to another supervisor named Amos, who stated that the manage named Chris will get back to me. Up until I checked out, no one addressed this issue, no one talked to me about my complaints or concerns, on one got back to me, not even the manager Chris. Every time I called, I was told by the front desk person that the manager is not available. It was horrible. I was not happy at all. I was charged and had paid for a room for over 6 hours that was not made available to me. I want my money back for that day. Thank you.

Would not recommend Tue, Jan 24, 2012
This is a great hotel if you just want a place to crash. Nothing special. Nothing horrible. Close to bus lines, highway 95 and North Beach. No extras or frills. Important for families: next to stripclubs and gay video shop.

Disappointing

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 1, 2012
3 room changes before one was found with a working AC. No remote for TV in one room and in the other room there was a remote but it didn't work. Cable was not working for the whole stay of which reception was aware of and the TV broke on the last day anyway. curtains did not fit the windows in one room and the second room didn't have any and so we had to put the bedspread up at it! In this same room the toilet flooded and we were just given towels to mop it up ourselves. Staff were friendly and polite but did nothing about the problems. On the Thursday evening the restaurant at the rear takes up most of the parking spaces at the Motel for their valet parking and its music can be heard in all the rooms on the right until the early hours. Although I was not there over the weekend, the restaurants security told me they were fully booked which implies parking at the motel would get tighter! I cannot recommend this Motel.

Dining

Jimmy's east side diner.....great for breakfast, serves pots of tea and super fast service.

Disgusting!

Would not recommend Thu, Dec 22, 2011
This hotel was probably the most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed in. When I got there they gave me a room that stank, the carpets had huge black stains, there were cigarette burns on some of the furniture, the AC didn't work and the room smelled horrible! I went to the front desk and they did immediately move me to another room (the front desk person was cordial). The next room was slightly better at least the carpets were clean and the only odor was from an incense burning from where I had no idea. If I hadn't arrived so late and had an early meeting in the morning I would not have stayed there. I also would NEVER recommend this hotel to ANYONE!

very inexpensive, in good location and great rooms

Would recommend Sat, Sep 10, 2011
we expected to have worse experience for the money we paid for this motel. The location is very convenient, as there are a lot of supermarkets and places to eat nearby. It is also very close to the street leading to the beach. The swimming pool is very nice. Even though the motel is close to the busy road we never heard its traffic as the steady quite noise of blowing air from airconditioning was always louder :)

Enough for the price

Would recommend Wed, Jun 1, 2011
The Room was clean, and the bathroom too, but not the rest of the Motel, they need to clean it better. The breakfast was horrible, just old small bagels, and they do not have napkins in the breakfast area, and the pots with the sugar and cream were dirty. The Best thing is the architecture, MiMo Style, and the colors of the Motel, remains the 50's. The swimingpool is very good. The girl in the front desk was nice.

Time saver

It is very close by car to Miami Beach.

it was cool

Would not recommend Wed, May 18, 2011
It was ok. Decent people (staff) they call cabs for you. Breakfast is donuts and coffee. You have to ask for everything though. So if you don't ask, you won't have milk for your coffee, an iron in your room, wifi code, etc. There are no fridges so u must eat out everyday. Pool looked dirty so I did not dare to swim, even their contract says "swim at your own risk, there is no life guard on duty" so I stayed out. If you have children. I wouldn't recommend this place. It looks a little unsafe, like you never who is staying there and there is an abandoned strip house on the corner. For a business stay where you are not really there for the fun, glitz or beach then its a decent stay. that's all.

Dining

There is a nice small sushi spot not too far, like the 2nd corner over. Was really nice and great service.

Miami Blu Motel Miami

Would not recommend Fri, Mar 19, 2010
When we checked in there was no Remote Control for the TV, there was not a single coat hanger in the closet, there was no lighte bulb in the night stand lamp. We got all this after we complained at the office. The beds were good and we slept well. There was a lot of streetnoise. There was not enough parking and we had to wait a long time for somebodyelse to move the car.

Dining

The dining was good but slow and expensive, next to the hotel.
