There were spiders in the tub. The bed had bugs on it. The bed also looked like a dog rolled all over it. The building smelt strongly of mildew probably because it's in humid Miami and the carpet looked like it was from the 70s. We asked to see another room and the conditions were the same other than it didn't have spiders.

Was supposed to be a QUEEN bed. It was not. BED TOO SMALL FOR TWO PEOPLE.

Bed bugs and cockroaches Dirty Beach Very bad Elevator from the 70s

literally right on the beach. BUT , all the reviews are right. Don't book here and expect 2-5 stars amenities , toiletries, and etc. Just have LOW expectations so your not shocked. This is a review for a reason so it's annoying seeing people who still complain... like what did you expect? The reviews are there for a reason. Pay more for somewhere else then. Conditions were poor but I expected that. But there are restaurants and souvenirs shop close-by... and a bikini bar (which probably offers more in the back lol)

This place is a dump. Online you see pictures of the main building but they stick you in a broken down building next door. One night there was puke all over the front. This place Dosnt even have cable!!! So there 1995 TVs are just for decoration!

I had a great stay, Jose was great, helpful, professional and friendly. The whole staff was. Only few channels

Nice hotel close to the beach but, there was a cockroach in the bathroom and one of the bed sheets had a stain like a defeace.

When we checked in to the room there was a tube tv or old school tv so we asked the front desk if we could have a more modern equipped room. He switched our rooms but there was roaches crawling in the bathroom so we asked them to spray. Once they sprayed more roaches came out and we decide to check out. Staff was helpful and friendly but facilities was not up to basic standard.

Booked a trip with amenities, including a restaurant on your site and get to hotel, the receptionist says that she never heard of it, then called another coworker and he tells us “ oh yeah, a lot of things have changed and our site needs updating “,and “ that restaurant and we don’t offer that anymore”! This is issue #1. Issue #2 is that we had a room, double bed, that was clean but not clean( not really enough to complain about, but enough to fix yourself) but nothing else.... the tv didn’t even work. So I got relocated to a supposedly better room and that tv worked but no cable!! No cable? Smh. No phone in room?! No ironing board but I have an iron?! The whole experience was just uncomfortable but we dealt with it! I was very disappointed with the overall experience at this hotel and will never go there again! I would never recommend anyone to go there. I would rather get in my car and drive 30 minutes further where I know that they give me the experience exactly as its advertised!! These guys are false advertising....

Very dirty per say tv did not work bath towels had hair on them very dirty.

Hotel was decent close to the beach . Hotel is at the DEAD END of all the action .(I mean an absolute ghost town) It’s on 74th steet so I had to Uber EVERYWHERE ! There wasn’t a microwave or a phone in the room. And the room never stayed cool especially when you took a shower . Overall I was there to party so the room served its purpose sleep and shower . Beds very comfortable. Hotel staff very pleasant and was very accommodating (no one spoke or understood English very well so I had to use a lot of Visuals to communicate ) I would recommend to those who need something affordable but are willing to pay for Uber’s/ Lyft overall my stay was good . TV reception was TERRIBLE !!!

Dirty room, questionable building, roaches in the room and somehow towels were never replaced. Just disappointing.

Hotel right across from beach. Nights were quite. Friendly staff.

Rooms were basic and small. Ok for a place to sleep.
