Miami trip

very bad--when i arrived i was informed that I would be billed a $2 per day mandatory security charge plus $8 per day parking. the wireless internet only worked in the lobby. the continental breakfast was bagels and cereal. the mattress on my bed was physically sagging in the middle. the hotel provided only about 15 stations on an old tv

I wouldnt do it again

Shuttle service, the two men who came were very nice however the shuttle van was very shakey, the brakes squeaked almost as though there was not a lot of break pads left, also the ride was a bit nerve wrecking because we were swerving in and out of lanes and almost hitting other drivers, and the speedometer did not even work. The hotel was okay, but not the greatest. The room was muggy and smelled musty. The ceiling looked like it had some leaks and the shower dripped and was dirty. The remote did not work and when we called the front desk they said they would send someone to take care of it however we waited about an hour and no one ever came. The pool was dirty and not very warm.

For the price, it met all expectations...

Except for the UNDISCLOSED roomsafe fee, ($2 per day and did NOT use the safe), which is charged upon check-out, all was positive... ALL charges should be disclosed upon check-in or during the booking procedure. This is a suspiciously unfair practice and I will contact my credit card company to remove those charges!

What was expected.

Even after reading many negative reviews regarding this hotel I thought I would give it a try. I agree with the positive reviews that this hotel is what one could expect for this price -which I feel was a good deal. The airport shuttle driver mentioned that this used to be a "Best Western" hotel and it very much shows that the new owners are not big into maintenance. Still, all I needed was a place to stay for a long layover (23 hours) and this place worked out just fine.

Poor to worse than poor.

I have read and reread my description and can find nothing inappropriate. I can only assume that you do not want an honest appraisal.

WORST Miami Hotel

the rooms were very humid. The a/c didn't work and there was mold. The bed always looked like they hadn't been washed, it had hair all over. There was spider webs everywhere. We asked for room change but they refused. We left immediately and they also refused to give us all or money back.
