very inexpensive, in good location and great rooms

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 :)

Breakfast

The experience with the staff was good. Breakfast needs a lot of improvement. Sweet donuts and coffee is not everyone's idea of breakfast

Ok for a short stay

The front desk staff is exceptional the maids need help...they slack on cleaning & proper dressing of beds. I moved rooms & have only a quilt no blanket to this day! They don't observe do not disturb signs so sleeping in doesn't happen much! The location isn't the best just the fact that it's 15-20 mins away from south beach & has a strip club on the corner.

Can't wait for the renovations

The location isn't that great but only 20-30 min drive from south beach & a short walk to a fun strip club! No continental breakfast. If you eat in your room you'll get surprised by lots of little visitors crawling around. Parking lot in front & the side are convenient. Pool is clean but be prepared by the car calls from small children. Where are the parents.

that part of Florida is the perfect place to see because we had quick access to all the beaches

The air conditioning didn't work very good, they always ran out of breakfast early, the room was very bare, we had to tell them to change our bed sheet's, the pool water was to cold to swim in.

Motel Blu

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.

Visiting Family

Its a 2 star Motel, and that's what you get. The room was clean except for the shower curtain, you need to ask for everything like extra towels or soap. The location is not the best but for the price you can't ask for much.
