Grateful to find the time to write this review that I must say is long overdue. I researched the establishment and ratings were questionable but also outdated. Given the location that is hard to match it was definitely worth a visit. Immediately I was won over. The ongoing remodeling of the hotel is fabulous and yet still keeping it's classic...

My husband and I stayed here the day we got off of our cruise and we looked at the pictures first before reserving. We thought that this place was a really nice hotel from the looks of it. Well, when we walked in, it was pretty inside, but the ceilings were pipes. This told me already that this was an...

This is really not as bad a hotel as lots of sites imply. If your on business the price, the CBD location is v.good. The place has had a renovation & the area generally is under a clean-up program. For the visitor not needing to be at South Beach $$$$

The lobby was nice. The room was very plain but clean. The two women at the front desk were very helpful and made our stay OK. It was only for one night before the cruise we were taking. Why spend more money just to skeep.

I had serious doubts about how clean the place was. The window and room looked rundown, only the lobby is nice and some of the staff were nice but the rest is not good. The elevator seems that its going to break down at any moment, it was scary. I couldnt wait to get out of there, to be honest.

I was recently in Miami for the Phish New Year's Eve Run and I can't say anything terrible about this place! It is in a wonderful location, the rooms are extremely small, but if you're only sleeping there...no big deal! The daytime desk clerk is such a lovely peraon, she was so welcoming! Every hotel could always be a little...

I stayed at this hotel last week. I can tolerate basically anything, but this hotel has bed bugs. The beds are not only horribly uncomfortable (they squeak every time you move), but there are bed bugs. We stayed there two nights. It's definitely one of the cheapest options in Miami, but I would not recommend it unless you are willing...

This hotel, is extremely straight forward with what you pay for. It is, a cheap hotel downtown. As a young adult, it was perfect for me and my friends who were on a budget. Although the bathroom was small, it was clean, and seemed to be redone recently. The shower head was brand new. We booked a room with one...

Pretty much everything about the place was terrible. The problems went from bad to worse: 1. The bathroom was tiny. I'm 110 pounds and I barely fit in the place. 2. The temperature control on the shower was broken. Took a shower for barely a minute before I had to jump out. 3. The fridge door is essentially un-openable. My...
