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.

Far from the Best

The hotel looks like it was once a great one, perhaps the "Best". It still works reasonably well to provide OK stay. Room was clean. Breakfast was minimum. But hey, their booking price matches what we paid for. Big complains: They charged us $8 for parking and $2 for safe box per night. That was extra on top of what we already paid. Even we don't use the safe we still have to pay for it. These extra charge was NOT disclosed when we book the hotel. I really wish they can be honest and let customer know first. If without this issue, this can be an value.

CONVENIENT FOR THAT SHOPPING GETAWAY

Everything was average although under new management. The staff was friendly and nice however more bilingual staff would help a situation or two. Need for warm room temperatures for those occasional cold windy air weather. overhaul on carpets in hallways, too old and dingy. Other than that perfect getaway for convenient weekend getaway shopping. Walking distance to subway, sunset plaza, supermarket and great on shuttling to and fro from the airport, Dadeland Mall etc.Response time is quick.

HORRIBLE

This hotel was completely damp. The carpet the walls everything was wet and had a mildew smell. The ceiling leaked all night, the tub was dirty, the hotel felt like it had not been updated in 20years. It was so bad that we slept on top of the sheets fully clothed. I prayed for sleep to come so that the experience would be over in the morning. I would never recommend for someone to stay there even if it was free.
