Expected more for the price

On the website looks nice but when we arrived it looked abandoned. It has stained walls, wall paper hanging, basically it needs to be remodeled!

Nice Hotel

The lobby and the room look alright, we had everything we needed. There is no room service so you should buy your own water from a nearby Walgreens or food mart. The hotel charges you for the safe although you might not use it, the charge is compulsory.

Needs improving

We stayed the night before our cruise and then again a night after our cruise. We booked this hotel because of the FREE airport shuttle & Port of Miami shuttle. But little did we know the shuttle only runs at certain times, which is not stated on their website. If you have to take a cab to or from hotel to airport it's $30+., which a couple of us had to do, because of early morning flights. So was not happy about that. The FREE breakfast is apples, oranges packaged muffins & one choice of cereal. With coffee, milk or orange juice. So not much of a variety. The rooms are run down. They need a lot of work. The man at front desk did say that the hotel was purchased 6 weeks ago by new owners who are going to be doing major renovations. I give 5 stars to the location. Mall real close, walking distance. Lots of little stores and restaurants nearby. A grocery store walking distance and library too. The light rail real close too.

It was a place to stay for business but a bit run down, I'm sure it used to be a nice place at one time. Rooms are a bit moldy. It was a decent area to be in

Horrible Stay Please Dont Go

After researching few hotel thru trip ad visor, i shortlisted some budget hotels, one of the few under the list was best Miami hotel. i was looking for a hotel which is well under the budget and clean enough for short stay, but everything turned upside down when i went there. First hotel name is missing on the hotel. it just says BEST and rest are missing, second as i checked in, they told me i will be charged 8$/day for parking.third and worst part is when i went inside the room. room is completely dirty, cockroaches here and there. chair was literally bad, it has some bad stains on it making impossible to sit on that. Iron board had stains which makes iron board unusable. bed is so bad, they have put 2 or 3 mattress of uneven form to bring it to certain height. room phone wasn't working, i wanted to reach lobby but phone didn't work at all. there were 3 lamps out of which 2 were not working. Main bed room light switch was so loose it has to be turned off and on few times for light to stay on. curtain at the window had stains. i want to bring this message to all. please don't stay at this hotel.

I guess you get what you pay for

I have not had problems personally, but I have witnessed people complaining to the manager about a stolen item from their room (it was a cosmetic product). The manager did not respond in a way a guest of the hotel would expect him to: he said that he understands but cannot accuse anyone of anything. It seemed like there is nothing that can be done. He did, however, refund them for one night's stay. The staff was nice to me, though.
