First time staying at this hotel, the location is very good, very close to the Hard Rock Stadium, also close to the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, did not find any issues with the hotel, except for the balcony, that rail needs some fixing. Other than that very nice. Beds were clean and comfortable, the air conditioner was quite, bathroom...

This place was sad. The lobby has been recently renovated, and I'd have to say that they did a decent job in doing so, but my room was awful. It smelled bad, it was damp, everything was old, there was moisture between the glass panes, it was noisy (the hotel is surrounded by major highways), there was mold and mildew....

The stadium hotel sort of pulls a fast one on you. You walk in to the small but updated lobby and you think the lobby is nice and updated, the rooms must match. Then you go up the elevator to your room and exit onto a floor that is dingy and dated and so overwhelmingly smells like air freshener, you...

Hello Crimlaw, We are sorry for your review. The hotel for sure is not pulling a fast one. We are a very budget friendly hotel one mile from major events at Hard Rock Stadium. I will not say any more, as you clearly don't understand the hotel business. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

Judging by the reviews, I was a little nervous to book for the Orange Bowl but I'm SO glad I did. Everyone was very friendly when we arrived. We were greeted with gift bags for our favorite team (Michigan for me and Florida State for my daughter). Rooms were clean, beds were comfy, breakfast was very good and larger than...

We stayed here for the second consecutive year around New Year's for a couple of football games. Last year, I wrote a review describing several issues we had. This year, it was a much better experience, and it's clear they are trying to improve the place. Our room appeared to have been recently painted and the carpet looked fairly new....

This place was a rip off. As soon as you get there they hit you with a bunch of hidden charges even though we already paid for the room. It was real sketchy. The floors were gross to the point where the bottom of your feet turned black just from walking around the room barefoot.

Thank Chris W
William21485, Guest Relations Manager at Stadium Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Chris W, We are not a rip off. Sorry you feel that way. There are no hidden charges. We clearly state all charges on our website. We have a clean and updated hotel. Apparently you feel otherwise. Our prices are redicuously low so sorry you felt ripped off. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

I had the misfortune to stay in the Stadium Hotel last night. I had thought that booking a hotel room involved having a bed in a foreign town and being able to sleep in it. I was wrong when I booked this hotel. Fireworks started late at night (past midnight - and it wasn’t New Years Eve) and continued on...

I've been staying here for years now. The upgrades are great. This used to be a pretty dingy hotel, and I really only stayed here for Dolphin games or other events at the stadium. I was really impressed with the upgrades. The free breakfast was fine and adequate. With Calder right next door you have another option for entertainment.

We stayed here just for a night and it was okay. It was a good place to stay in a good area and had things to do at the hotel. However they give you tickets to breakfast like they are trying to guard some extravagant breakfast but really it's as minimal as you can get. Just basically a bunch of...
