We stay at the Stadium Hotel for almost every Miami Hurricanes game. We are always very pleased with our stay. The Sports Bar/Shuttle Service make everything nice and easy. We'll be back in two weeks!

Room Tip: Absolute best selection for footbal games/events

Great place to stay before and after the game. They offer a small but nice sports bar with a good selection of draft and bottled beer and mixed drinks. The service was superb. Ask for Frances. They served me the best cheeseburger I've had in months. There is a shullte to Hard Rock Stadium which is $15 round trip.
No frills but great place to spend the night(s) before and after a Hurricane or Dolphin game.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of Hard Rock Stadium and the Race track which is on the South side.

The proximity to the stadium is why we booked this hotel. The rooms were clean and the view from the balcony were great but there was a lot left to be desired for the price tag of over $100 a night with all the extra fees.

The front desk told another customer the $100 refundable deposit was because of the recent hurricane... but we were shocked when we were informed of this upon check in. Would of been nice to be told ahead of time.

It was clear they were doing work on the hotel from the outside (lots of tree debris etc) but were not told upon check in that they were also doing work inside the hotel. During the day there was constant drilling/screwing and hammering which interfered with being able to relax during the day on our vacation.

The free breakfast is probably the worst I've ever seen and I've stayed at hotels that are WAY cheaper. It was basically just bread.

Staff was friendly and mostly helpful when asking questions. Their printer wasn't working and one employee told me it would be working the next day and to come back. The employee the next day kindly said it never works and had me email the front desk and they printed it for me.

Mostly the construction workers were staying at the hotel during the week while we were there. The hotel is non smoking and no glass is supposed to be on the pool deck but the workers congregated and had coolers full of beer (glass bottles) and hung out on the pool deck smoking cigarettes.

Hello alboneceleste,
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. The 100.00 dollar deposit is actually a policy that was implemented after the Hurricane. This hold is an incidental hold of 100.00 dollars on the card until check out. It is released at check out as long as there is no damage or money owed on the folio. Sorry this was misunderstood. We lost 3 floors in the Hurricane and the floors are being worked on until 5pm. 90 rooms is a lot of rooms that are down for the hotel. We are doing the best possible to get the rooms up for business. Sorry it was an inconvenience. The breakfast is free and contains breads, yogurt, cereal, juices & milk.

Respectfully,
Guest Relations Manager

I stayed here to go to a Miami Hurricanes football game. The hotel staff was very accommodating, allowing us to check in early. Room was clean and well furnished, staff is friendly, and there’s a convenient restaurant/bar downstairs. It is very convenient for attending events at Hard Rock Stadium!
