“Bed Bugs & very bad service”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

I stayed at this hotel with my partner in December and it was one of the worst experiences that we have had. We have traveled to third world countries and had better service then this place. We booked a room for one week because we were there for a conference. They gave us a room with no closet to start with and we were there for one week.
We asked the front desk person to move us and she would not. So I asked her to call the owner of the motel, he finally moved us to an outside room in front of the parking lot that is right on the main street. It was noisy and the car lights shined right inside the room. We asked many times for them to move us and they refused, we had red blotches all over our body from the bed bites that I showed the owner and pleaded with him to move us. They refused again. The rooms were dirty and their maids do not clean well. hair on the floor and in the shower. We had to move out after staying there 3 nights. The manager was very rude and the front desk person was very rude. I would not recommend this to anyone. The pictures that they show are nothing like what the place looks like. The worst part is the unprofessional behavior of the owner and his staff that is something that no one should have to go through. The bed mites were really bad.

Room Tip: do not stay in that part of town. it is old and not very safe.

DO NOT STAY HERE. I KNOW YOU MAY BE TEMPTED BY THE PRICE BUT IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

The motel was cheap and rooms were dirty, for the price that wasn't such a big surprise. The Bed Bugs sucked as we were itching from the moment we touched the bed and had to sleep in long pants and shirts in a room where the air conditioner didn't work well.

What really was no fun was the horrible staff and management of the hotel.

When we got to the hotel we were early and had some work to do that day, so they indicated that we could get our room later. We wanted inside room as internet access was not working in the outside rooms. They said that was no problem. when we got back that evening to check in they told us there were no more rooms. So we went stayed in the outside section for 3 nights.

As we had talked to several people who were checking out we asked the front desk to be moved into one of their rooms for the last 3 days of our stay. The front desk person said No those rooms are reserved. We asked to speak to the manager and the "Owner" got on the phone and yelled at us denying the rooms that we had paid for. we pointed out that we paid for internet access which was not available in the outside rooms. He just continued yelling at us and we finally decided to leave and check into a different hotel for the rest of our stay. Best decision ever.

BTW this was a recommended hotel from Expedia and they provided no avenue for us to raise issues with their "recommended" prepaid hotel so that was very disappointing.

DO NOT STAY HERE....

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

Trying to find a reasonably priced hotel in miami was getting stressful. Cheap ones were ghetto. And didnt want to over pay for just a one night stay. I found thus hotel and we couldn't have had a better expirence. There isnt any thing fancy, just very simple. Room was clean, bathroom was clean. I could even smell the bleach in the sheets.
The breakfast was better than i expected had dunkin doughnuts, yogurt, bagels with cream cheese. It was nice to sit in the little courtyard and just enjoy the morning. It was also nice to hear all the other languages of the other guests.
If you go venturing out for dinner, be warned the neighborhood seems a bit run down, but we didnt have any problems. This area was probably ince the place to be.
It costs about 25$to to get here by taxi from the airport.
Will definitely stay here again if we leave for another cruise out of miami.

My stay here was fine , Check in was fast, just my confirmation number and keys, our room, bed was oke and very comfortable. but the shower floors was slippery when you taking a bath. Closed to every where in just 10 or 20 minuut.

Room Tip: Room 28 was quite and the A/C works good.

This hotel is average. It's not somewhere you'd want to stay for more than 2 nights. The beds are nice and comfortable though which is a plus. Our room was upstairs and overlooked the common area, it was fine, nothing special, clean but old, needs some painting and upgrades. It was close to where I needed to be, they have free parking to. The staff were not very professional, the standards aren't high but they do have a sense of humor. I'd recommend this place. No bed bugs.
