Miami Beach

I wouldn't stay here again. There was hair in the bath tub and toilet. The windows were broken, so sound from the Miami nightlife and heat came in the room all night long. The room was very musty, and the bathroom - pretty gross. The walls were super thin, so you could hear people in their rooms partying on top of the outside noise. Security was lacking, and I did not feel safe.

would go back!

The staff at the front desk was extremely helpful goving us advice for lunch or dinner restaurants. Great location near the beach and surrounded by restaurants. Room cleaning service needs to be improved. They did not vacuumed the carpet at all while we were there (6 days). One day we ran out of towels because they only left 1 large towel and one wash cloth.

Great Location....

I stayed at this hotel this past weekend, upon early arrival due to an early flight the hotel allowed us to leave our luggage in a safe place until the room was ready so we can browse the strip. They were able to provide us for an early check-in. The room was quite cozy & surprisingly the same look as shown in the picture. One of the AC's went down in the room so they provided us with another room the next day. My only feedback there was the housekeeping was very unpleasant and had an awful attitude. Other than that it was a great stay and I would definitely come back!

Ideal Location For The Beach

Very comfortable 2 nights stay. Repair work going on during stay, but not a problem. Sounded like a carnival was passing by in the early hours of the first morning, as the windows are not very soundproof.

Good spot on Collins Ave

Pros: Awesome location, short walk to Clevelander, Mangos, Wet Willies and of course the beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping did as good of a job as anyone could do with three guys in a room without having their moms there to pick up their socks. Beds were very comfortable and air conditioning worked flawlessly. They have a Spa on site with a menu of their services in every room. A convenience store next door, good for picking up snacks to keep in your room as you will have a small refrigerator and microwave. Also next door is a tour office so if you want to go sight seeing around Miami or take a day trip to Key West they will help set that up for you. Cons: No elevators or bellboys so you will have to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs to your room (if you stay on their 2nd floor). No parking lot so you you will have to park in the street, use a parking deck or valet service. No Valet service on the premises so you have to time it just right because once called they take about 15 minutes to pick up or drop off your car. Plus the Valet service gets paid separately so they are going to expect payment when they drop off your car or pick it up. As of 07/02/12 Valet service was $20 a day plus tip. I stayed in a studio and the bathroom was a little cramped. Overall my friends and I would stay again, the staff was great and the price compared to other hotels in the area was great. I'm constantly traveling to South Beach so I will look at them again.

For Miami tours, activities and day trips see the tour office next door. Their prices were pretty much inline with the rest of the tour offices we saw around Miami.

Worst Experience Ever!

First and most important their was an infestation of bugs in our room. The bugs were on the walls, curtains, bathroom, and even our BED, between the sheets. The shower head pressure was really low and the tub was old and rustic. The MOTEL ran out of face towels and beach towels. The building is old and the decor is out dated. Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this MOTEL.

Bug central!

don't stay here! They have bed bugs and roaches. I complained about the roaches and all they did was come kill them. When we checked in the hotel it was two dead roaches left on the floor. Not to mention they wear huge! It was crickets in the bathroom! And when I went to bed I noticed they had bed bugs so I asked for a new room. They gave me a new room and it was only worse! I left the hotel and went to stay somewhere else. The staff wasn't bad but the hotel Is def not up to par!

Decent price for the area

I went here with a bunch of friends. The rooms were OK with all furnishing with cheap Ikea stuff. The sheets and comforters looked clean but very used. There were few small roaches we killed, but no other creatures found. Noise level was good for most part, except when the trash collection truck came in early morning, forcing us awake. The best part is the location, very close to all the restaurants on Ocean Dr , and the night clubs on Washington Ave.

Nice place

Good location in walking distance to clubs, the beach, restaurants on the strip, etc. Hotel was nice and clean, modern decor. Well worth it. Worst part about the stay was that the hotel didnt have an ice machine inside, but there is a restaurant right next door...
