Recent guest reviews
We stayed at the Zenmotel for 2 days before our cruise. The staff was extremely friendly and considerate. My kids loved the bunk beds. My room was spotless. The beds were very comfortable and the motel quiet. Great location with a quick Uber ride to beach and restaurants. Thank you!!!
We stayed a family in one of the family rooms. Nice parking facilities and good atmosphere. Staff is friendly and accommodating. We washed clothes in the laundry room for three dollars. Nice restaurants are nearby.
ZenMimo is a great place to stay, in the heart of Miami...You can easily access different parts of the city from the hotel. The airport, the beach, beautiful shopping centers and restaurants are all within 15 mins of this location. Each member of staff was very professional and accommodating. I had no issues with my stay. The rooms are very clean. During my stay, it was very quiet and peaceful. I was definitely feeling the “zen” effect. They even have free parking, a free computer/business center and kitchen area that you may use whenever you like. Other guests were very respectful as well, in which I had a shared room. I would recommend 100%.
Booked this through Hotels by Day basically for luggage storage between cruise and a late flight out. The hotel didn't have the reservation from Hotels by Day but accommodated us anyway. We had heavy luggage and so they gave us a room without stairs, which was also very accommodating. Rather than using standard card keys or keys, they used a keypad access system that was odd- and the front door also required a code- even during the day. This gives me the impression it is a high crime neighborhood. The surrounding buildings in the neighborhood were also in decay with graffiti. The main issue I had was the overwhelming smell of soap- used as air freshener that made it hard to breathe. I would not have been able to sleep on the very low bed. I appreciate the effort but I would not return
Location close to Mia Airport 15 Min , South Beach 15 Min, Wynwood 15 Min and Downtown and other great things. The shared rooms are great, clean, comfortable allwith a fridge and Micro and only four in one room with one bathroom. The ambiance in the hotel in unique, Zenworks with small kitchenette, Wifi etc great and convenient. Love it and great value for money, will be back
Absolutely wonderful stay, super friendly staff and really great experience overall. I have never found something this good for this rate anywhere in Miami. Awesomeness clean room.. my gf was very pleased. 😁
Great place and excellent price. All good and comfortable and quite. The remodel still needs some finishing touches, white caulking smeared on the bathroom walls (I thought it was toothpaste), shower curtain was too short, thus water damage on the floor and base board, shower head worked good but top was falling apart. Towels were on a hook - not folded - and crunchy, giving the appearance of not laundered from the last guest - suggestion - roll them up and place them on a shelf or in the sink for new guests. Bedroom was nice, USB ports, good mattress and quite. Thanks Guys!
To say that this place is phenomenal is an understatement!! From the clean and beautiful smelling atmosphere to the peace and tranquility that you feel upon entering, this place was astounding and jaw dropping. The decor gives you a taste of Asia meeting East Africa. Sheldon must find Elephants as majestic as i do, which amazed the life out of me to see them captured and depicted in large form all over his establishments. (can you tell i like elephants?? wow did you see how i wrote that? wow.. smh) This is the second hotel location with the same owner that I have stayed in, and it won't be the last! This place is more upbeat than the Zenmotel Inn, and if your expecting to meet new people and pay a nominal fee for such an amazing stay, than this is the place for you!! Its upbeat and has that struggling artist chill spot meets the vacationing foreign group of girls excited to be in Miami and see the beach (not realizing that it's hurricane season and they came at the worst time because they will be stuck in the rain most days) Nonetheless, its a dream to have stayed in this hotel and experienced the somewhat hostel like experience. Now when i say Hostel, If you are traveling alone i would advice, (if you have enough funds) stay in the separate room on your own to fully enjoy or embrace the experience. If you have never been in a hostel before there here is the best explanation I can offer. 4 bunk beds.... 4 different women/or men (strangers that you don't know) sleeping in the same room. However, safety first and the owner left nothing out! He includes your own personal cubicle door with every bed in order for everyone to lock up with their personal and private belongings with a 4 digit code access that allows you to feel and know your personal things are safe and secure. With Ear plugs to and this amazing smelling aloe soap Sheldon leaves NOTHING OUT!!! Then... there is the mattress.... omg... sensational. the memory foam had me in such a state of comfort! i don't even recall the last time i slept as good as i did in the mimo. And I've been to the Zenmotel Inn for crying out loud. In conclusion, from the exceptional service that Sheldon provides to the astonishing cleaning that the housekeeping staff does so well. I would stay again and again if and when i am ever able hell.. i may even move into the Zen residences ;)!!!! Sheldon, my hat is off to you my love " You did that s***" Thank you for opening my eyes to the beauty of your creative mind and allowing me to stay in your Om away from Home. Always, Val
The 4 bed room was over expectations. Clean room and dry towels made my days. Things to get better: - is really necessary AC Turned on all day long? - They should put some curtains on the beds (shared rooms, obviously). - The staff could smile a little more (the maid was awesome!) Nice location (not in rainy days haha). If I would come back? Sure!
You could tell that the people who worked here really cared about keeping the place clean and tidy- upon walking into the lobby it smelled very fresh and the rooms were set up nicely (I chose the 4 person, all female room). I had a bit of trouble checking in because I had left my wallet at home, yet the receptionist was very reasonable and did everything he could to help me. My only complaint is the area is not great and my one roommate seemed to be homeless and living in the hostel. This is obviously not the fault of management, but figured it was worth noting for safety reasons.
