This area of Miami is not the best and the fanciest of the city, there's not much where to sleep: just old style "cheap" motels. Shalimar is one of them, simple, but clean and the staff is really nice and helpful. Wifi is ok in the front side but I had problems in the back side. They offer a complimentary...

When you first arrive it can seem a little daunting as the hotelier is sat behind a glass screen. You check in and they take there $100 deposit. Never done this anywhere else but it is there policy. We stayed on the upper floor facing the road. Room: First impressions is that it was very clean (infact you could still...

Stayed here for a couple of nights before moving on to Orlando. It was perfect for what we needed, ample parking, large clean room with air conditioning and in a good location to go exploring Miami. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was simple but good and I can't fault it for being a very decent place to stay for...

This place is squeaky clean, indeed. It's spotless. If you're an anti-germ freak, pay the extra and stay at the Shalimar. Plus, the rooms in back of the building have big fences with locked doors attached to them, with beautiful flowers and vines near room 119. Checking into the place, though, is similar to checking into a penitentiary! You have...

The motel area is ok, the room is average, but services are not good, also they charge an extra $10 the price I already paid online "just because" besides you must deposit $100 "just in case"? I am not going back..

Dear Shalimar guest, all hotel and motel hold C/C or cash security. It is refunded at check out. It possible the other hotel do not tell you about it in front. The same with car rental. The Shalimar did not invent the security deposit. All the information for booking room at the Shalimar are posted on all the reservation pages...

The motel was very nice. Even though it looked a bit old on the outside. The rooms were very nice and clean. The only thing that was not to my liking was they wanted a $100 deposit even though I had pre-paid. The breakfast was great and we had a great time.
