Great location but you get what you pay for

The overall experience here was ok. The hotel is old and it shows. The king room size was great. The bathroom is small and the sink and toilet are low and crowded. The cabinet above the sink is oddly placed and it makes it hard to lower your head into the sink for brushing or washing your face. The tv in the room is so old I didn't think they still existed. LCDs are so cheap these days so I dont see why they haven't upgraded. There is horrible insulation making noises very apparent. People would be slamming their doors all over and you can hear it loudly. It's a cheap place for a quick stay but don't expect anything amazing except for the great location near the beach and La Sandwicherie.

OK for a couple days

Biggest complaint was the dumpsters that came at 7am and took 1 hour to clean up the trash. Very loud!

NO Heat

Ordinarily no heat in the room would be no big deal in South Florida. But when it happens to be 2 of the coldest days of the year (arctic blast), you kind of need a little heat. Especially if you are already feeling ill. After 5 phone calls to the front desk and multiple promises that "maintenance" would come to get the heat going, someone finally arrives at the door with a small space heater. Yes, turns out there is actually no "heating" for the room. Other than this small thing, otherwise the experience was ordinary. To be sure, this hotel is no 3-star.

Espanola Way is just a few blocks from the hotel and there are many lively and good Spanish and Italian restaurants along the street.

Nothing Special

This is one of many old hotels that trade on their location. The hotel is very old and it shows. The rooms are shabby and old. The old tube style TV and ancient bed spread make you feel cheated for the price. The staff cheats the foreign tourists and they pop a 'resort' fee onto your bill that isn't disclosed until checkin. Hustlers hang out on the front porch of this hotel and a tour salesman sitting in the lobby pretends to be a concierige (sp) while steering the gulible to his tours. Net, good location crumby hotel, particularly for the money.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you walk to Ocean Drive from this hotel you'll be chatted up at 20 different bistros. Nice view, very expensive. If you want a quick, cheap meal walk toward Washington St. and grab lunch at the Sandwieria. Good food, reasonably priced. Also, the tip is always included in the price. If you're not handed a receipt, ask for one. Particularly if English is not your native language.
