With the exception of the young lady who checked us in, the...

Stayed here for 1 week - It was near where i needed to be but the area is full of prostitution at night and it is questionable as to whether the main stay of guests are involved in the trade!

Staff was EXTREMELY friendly and helpful. The rooms are not the best and are a little gross. I was there during Miami Music Week so the motel was filled with other festival goers and was conveniently located for the events. But I wouldn't stay there again outside of that week just becuse it looks like the type of place that...

This motel is close to downtown Miami , but the breakfast is very simple , just a croassant and a latte . The rooms are fairly good , but the cleanliness leaves you uneasy. I do not recommend for family.
