We stayed at the stadium hotel over the holiday weekend for our friends wedding, check in was good...don't remember her name (short and dark) her smile was very pleasant and accommodating, the overall feel of the hotel was welcoming as it seems that some refurbishing was recently done....the room was OK and had all that was mentioned on the website, it was cleaned everyday..... the only drawback that I didn't like,and maybe its just a personnel preference is the carpet through the hallway and in the room, tile floor would be much more accommodating, we stayed in 628, I will be back if I'm visiting this side again.

Recently updated and has a very clean smell as soon as you walk in. They offer a shuttle to the games as well. It’s a little tricky getting in and can easily pass it so pat attention to the directions. The rooms are great however the beds are very firm.

We stayed at Stadium Hotel for the weekend as we were going to a Canes game Saturday and Dolphins game Sunday. Perfect location. Very friendly staff. Pool was ok. My sons loved the basketball court and football field. We had a very fun time. The breakfast was just OK. Its also nice to have a bar downstairs. It is what it is and for that its just perfect.

Stayed the night after a long day of driving. We are on our way to Homestead Miami Speedway for NASCAR Championship Weekend and needed a place to stay just for one night. Nice and clean. Affordable. Felt very safe as they have security on staff. Nice hotel staff! Comfortable beds! Loved the balcony and view! Stayed in Room 624. I would stay again if I’m ever in the area.

We recently stayed at the Stadium hotel and were extremely disappointed in our experience for the below reasons. We chose the hotel and to stay simply for the convenience to the Hard Rock Stadium, however would not recommend to future guests, especially if they have children!

Upon pulling up to the hotel we noticed a signage for long term housing available, a police sub-station on site and a security guard. This was never conveyed to us as the costumer upon booking the reservations for two nights. This made my family and I very uncomfortable.

Once entering the room, there was a very musty smell that was covered up with an extreme amount of some type of cleaning detergent or air fresher. We had to open the sliding doors, which were difficult to slide, and the doors did not have screens therefore we had some flies come into our room. On the heat/air conditioner unit, the word profanities were scratched into the paint. These are inappropriate words for my children and myself to view. On the ceiling above the bed, there appeared to be cobwebs or dirt from not being cleaned properly.

We went back down into the lobby to voice concerns and then experienced a woman being very loud, making a scene and then escorted out by the security guard. We were glad he was there to take care of the situation, however we were then in fear for our small children and as a family and left for the rest of the evening. When we returned, a state trooper was near the entrance as well.

Our positive comments, are the front desk staff members were friendly during our stay and convenience of the hotel to stadium.

Hello lmbialo,
We are sorry your visit was not a good experience. Our property is safe as we have 24 hour security. The hotel has a place here that our local police officers come and hold their meetings, grab a snack, and just take a moment to breathe. We like to accommodate our local officers & show support to our community. We do have long term guests that stay at our hotel. We advertise for it on our front sign as we feel there are many people that need a fast convenient affordable place to stay as they are traveling and doing business all over the states/world. We offer affordable rates that are budget friendly and fit many peoples needs. All other maintenance or Housekeeping issues mentioned have been corrected. Again we apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced with your stay.

Respectfully,
Guest Relations Manager
