This hotel is a bargain. But be aware that the building is old, it has mold issues that are noticeable by the scent. If you have mold allergies, this may be a problem. They would benefit from mold remediation, and deep cleaning of their HVAC system. Otherwise, the staff was very friendly, check-in was a breeze, and the room was spacious, and as clean as it could be, despite the mold smell.

Would never recommend staying here. Hotel was and smelled dirty/damped, light in the bathroom did not work, there was cracks on the walls and remote control did not work. When service was called for remote control I had to wait hours and still had to go to lobby to have it replaced. Customer service was terrible! Also there are hidden charges for use of garage and safe.

Apart from the location which was near to the hospital that I needed to attend, the services was the worst I have ever experience booking thru Orbit. The Supervisor assistant was horrible, she was rude and very dismissive and when I told her I was going to report her due to her behavior, she displayed a do not care attitude and told me I could go ahead. When I told her that the room was not what was advertised online, she told me that's what I paid for. I would never recommend my worst enemy to this hotel. I spilt tea on the room in my room from the first day and the spill was never cleaned. Horrible

Hotel was needed for a nights stay till our flight came....hotel was a bit smelly but you tend to expect that with high humidity places...air conditioning was in blast nd when I tried to warm the room the heat did not work...water pressure in bathroom was bad nd water didn’t get hot...made you pay to park in their structure....would not stay again

made this reservartion for my 63 yr old aunt. they did not let her check in for more than 3 hours. would not recommend to anyone

Remote did not work. No lights above beds to read with. Air conditioner needs working on. Free breakfast advertised other places to eat. Noisy outside our door. Key would not work when we got back from free breakfast. Location of the hotel was great.

I wasn’t happy at all, this hotel is over priced. It should be max $80 a night. Oh they charge for parking $8 a day, they charge for the safe in the room. Why?? Those stuff should be included. The hotel was old, and smelly. And I could tell people were smoking! They had breakfast but worthless. Okay I wasn’t expecting eggs and bacon but at least cream cheese with bagel. They fruit but I could tell it was days old. Definitely over priced place compare to what they provide, I won’t go back.

Smelly dirty rooms, bed bugs, rude staff, and the shuttle sucks. Waited 2 hours at the airport after being told multiple times the shuttle will arrive in 30 minutes.

We had to move 3 times from room to room because they had leaks, part of the staff was not very friendly nor polite, the hotel had smoking smell where it is supposed to be a smoke free hotel. The hotel was clean and rooms were comfortable for the price, breakfast was OK.

I was only at the facility over night. The service with transportation was horrible

The smart key did not work. The tv never turned on, shower was not a shower, very load music at 7 am in the lobby, very bad facility. The worst experience I never have in a hotel. The staff just said sorry, I leaved and looses my money. I trryed to contact orbitz about and it was no possible. Terrible experiences

We found the staff impatient and abrupt. The room itself was fine. Note that parking is not included and we were charged $8 for parking on the hotel property for the one night we stayed.

We found this South Miami spot over 5 years ago and LOVE the nearby community. It includes a Lebanese resturant, Italian, Portuguese restaurants, new Falafel shop; a shopping mall, CVS pharmacy, Starbucks and a new Ceillo coffee shop. Located near commuter train and a short trip to the beach. Free shuttle to port of Miami. Low in price..nice!

If you don't pay them eight dollars a day to park in the hotel garage, your vehicle will get toad and they do not explain that at check in. Be warned.

This place is dirty nasty and smelly. Their staff is below ok. I will never stay here

Stayed there from August 22 to August 27 Pros * Location * Friendly staff (specially the room service personnel and the people in charge of breakfasts) * Breakfast included * Fast check-out Cons * Hotel reception * Old hotel, needs maintenance ASAP. * Never used the swimming pool, the area was being painted during my stay. * Miserable wifi connection (trying to connect everytime was so annoying) * Horrible beds, felt like to be sleeping in a hammock. * Charges daily safe fee - cannot avoid * Charges parking fee * Horrible smell on carpeted areas (avoided to walk around the interior corridors) * Dripping water from the AC in the room (220), dangerous if you walk over and fall * Cannot stop running water from shower

Rude staff, having celebration at the pool all 3 night. No way to have quiet time. Alarm going on several time will not recommend this hotel even to a rat or dog. Personal need to be trained.

The extra blanket which I needed that was in the room smelled like vomit. When we asked for another, the staff member expressed she doubted if she could find another extra blanket. What am I supposed to do-freeze or sleep with a blanket that smelled of vomit?????????? The charge for parking should be included as part of the total bill-there is no other place to park. Mouse poop found in the bed.

Good to stay one night, it's perfect if you need an hotel to go there and sleep at night only. Is near of everything.

Place was ok to stay at for the price, but rooms need updated. Bed was nice and comfortable and plenty of towels and wash clothes in bathroom. Shower head was plugged and needs cleaning.
