interesting courtyard (too cold to use, in Feb.)

Issues: toilet was flushing when I arrived at room. I managed to stop it. There is a slow leak (of water, I hope) onto the plastic-wood floor near the entry door inside the room. About a teaspoon in 12 hours. I shall tell the staff shortly. The threshold between the bathroom and entry area is off needs replacement. The beds sag. And yet... the room is large, quiet, and the interesting courtyard has a nice pool. (It is "outdoors," tho, and today is a record low temp. for Miami.) The breakfast includes Cheerios (etc.), toast, sausages, bananas, and an egg-like substance which, however, is not egg. Not bad for the price.

Overnight stay waiting for flight out

The hotel was located in the weirdest locations. the room we were given was small and dingy, we asked for a king they gave my husband and I a double bed! It was not the cleanest hotel.. But on a good note we were only there for 10 hours to sleep and catch our flight out of Miami.. we had a long layover

DO NOT BOOK!!!

For the price, I expected this hotel to be below a 3 star rating, but it was actually the worst hotel I have ever stayed at period. The only upside to this hotel is the location in a quite Coral Gables neighborhood. It is only a 20 minute drive to south beach. The bad points - The room was completely molded and damp, the staff was comprised of 20 year olds who were very unprofessional, the housekeeper consistently "forgot" to make our room, we never had fresh towels or made beds, the "continental" breakfast was comprised of toast and butter, the pool was out of order, the carpets looked like they haven't been vacuumed in a year, and if you didn't get in by 11pm all of the parking spaces are taken. This hotel should only be booked if staying for only one night.

Great location, but hotel just ok

No other hotels in the area. Close to metro, the mall and lots of great restaurants. Convenient free shuttle to cruise port and airport, but runs at limited times 10:30am and 12PM to cruise port and 8AM 1PM 3PM 6PM and 8PM to airport. If your picky, this hotel is not for you, but for a cheap night stay before a cruise or flight it was just what we needed. The beds are horrible and need replacing. Walls are thin and you can hear people in the other rooms and doors slamming. In spite of all that, we would stay here again as the price is fair for what you get.FYI checkin is at 3PM and there is nothing you can say or do to get your room sooner.

DONT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!

Don't believe the photos!!! This hotel is moldy, the carpet hasn't been cleaned for years, and it needs to be completely gutted and remodeled. The hotel staff are immature and unprofessional. The continental breakfast was the worst. You're essentialy standing in line for toast and butter, with Fruit Loops. If you're thinking about booking this hotel, STOP, I REPEAT, ABORT MISSION!!!

There is an excellent Cuban restaraunt 3 minutes from the hotel called Havana Harry's. Get the Lamb Shank entree with cabernet wine... Heaven does exist.

Not amused at all

The hotel imposed in-room safe charges which is not refundable, whether or not you use it. Information on such fee did not appear on the website when you booked the hotel. The hotel cheated the customer.
