My week long stay at the Miami was pleasant and a bargain. The front desk is manned 24/7 and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I received 250 MB data per day; data is based on time being logged on as well as data sent and received - log off when not using email/web as the data can mount up. An IGA grocery store with beer/wine/liquor is about four blocks away and Victoria Market is close by as the hotel is basically in a residential area. A variety of restaurants are located nearby.
The closet had six coat hangers. Two washers and two dryers are onsite: 3x$1 to wash and 2x$1 30 minutes dry. Soap is sold at the front desk for $1. Heating is controlled by the front desk, I never had to have ask for more heat. A flat screen TV with about twenty stations was quite nice. A hair dryer, 4 pillows, alarm clock, two night stands, thick drapes and a complimentary pen were provided in my standard room. The bathroom was clean and soap, shampoo, conditioner and saving cream was provided.
Housekeeping was efficient and they always refilled my coffee and tea container (an electric water heater located above the mini fridge). They have brochures of activities to do in the Melbourne area and I saw staff helping others with their vacation plans.
The hotel has been a Tripadvisor winner for the last two years (the primary reason I selected this hotel) and is ecologically friendly. I would recommend this hotel to any budget minded travelor, book early and you might get a discount.
