Very rude staff ! guys at the front desk have an attitude and do not treat people equally. if you are white your service will be exceptional. but if you are italian or black these staff members will not treat you with respect. The valet service sucks and you have to wait forever to get your car. I almost missed my flight because my car couldnt be located. The rudest staff member that made my stay uncomfortable , goes by the name Josue. Every question I asked him was responded to with an attitude. I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE Read less

First off I’ll list the things wrong with the area and not the fault of the hotel . If you like the sound of powerful car engines roaring and revving at all hours this is the place for you . If you like hearing drunken people shouting and yelling at all hours again you’ll love it . Now the the hotel , the positive points are the staff are… Read more
First off I’ll list the things wrong with the area and not the fault of the hotel . If you like the sound of powerful car engines roaring and revving at all hours this is the place for you . If you like hearing drunken people shouting and yelling at all hours again you’ll love it . Now the the hotel , the positive points are the staff are very nice and friendly and it’s clean . The downsides are the rooms are very basic , no fridge to put a refreshing drink in . No tea or coffee making facilities and the walls are very thin so you can hear next door very easily and the air con is very loud . The room we had was a bit tatty but clean . I do think that they shouldn’t advertise as providing breakfast as a banana and two rounds of bread on a polystyrene plate is not a continental breakfast in anyone’s book . They did have cereal on offer again in a polystyrene bowl . We ended up going out for breakfast every morning at a further expense as that was not an acceptable offering . I couldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone I’m afraid and we will never return to it on our regular visits to the wonderful city of Miami . Read less

As before I emailed ahead and asked if we could have the same room as before and they were able to accommodate us. Always clean and tidy. Yes breakfast is basic, plastic plates etc, however if you know this before then what can you expect. Very good value plus it’s the quiet end of Ocean drive however lots going on. Really enjoyed our stay. The beach had quite a lot of seaweed however this was cleared the best it could be. Read less

Couldn’t fault the staff they were always on hand to help, reception staff great and I was helped with my bags by a very nice gent. Rooms basic but functional. Everything we needed. Location was great, right in the middle of everything. The bad bit... breakfast. Self serve bread and a banana or cereal dispensers. That is not enough to be classed as breakfast. I opted for this hotel due to breakfast included but due to how poor it was only ate it once. The same restaurant the breakfasts in serves $2.99 after the comp breakfast is over. This includes eggs on toast/omelette options, great food. This is the breakfast that should be included in the stay, people would pay the extra $2.99 on the room rate for it, if money is the reason why breakfast is so basic. Read less
