Not proud to say that I stayed in this dump. Which by the way is listed also as Travel Lodge Monaco Sunny Isles. This is the worse place I have ever stayed in my life.
The rooms do not have A/C controls. We complaint to the front desk about the temperature and their response was "it is a central A/C system and is very hot outside today, Sir", maybe because Miami weather is not supposed to be hot - I guess. However, I must say they were kind enough to send a ventilator, which we put in the only spot possible - blocking the entrance to the bathroom. Ohh, and the bathroom, lets start by saying that the tub was not draining and the front desk attendant came with a toilet pump to flush it. The temperature of the water was either freezing or boiling - no middle point.
The beds were squeaky and uncomfortable. Very little sleep, but not only because of the beds. You can hear the snoring coming from the next room, to say the least and keep this review PG rated.
The cleaning, was horrendous. One day we saw a cockroach on our way out, and when we returned, it was dead - belly up in front of the door. Apparently the house keeping staff stepped on it in front of the entrance door, and left it there to welcome us. The house keepers "cleaned" the floor with a dirty mop, leaving the floor sticky and smelly.
There are some areas of the balconies supported by construction shoring - I wonder how this place is operating like that.
The ocean front facade is closed and looks like a set for an horror movie.
After all these facts, you can not even imagine this property have a "resort fee" charged on top of the rate. Which is the most insulting thing they can do. Reason why I have to make sure to write a review for the two different profiles they have for the same property. Nobody deserves to be lead to believe this is an acceptable property. Anyway, if you are looking for adventure or a somewhat funny tale to tell your friend; come !
