“Great place to stay but Wi-Fi is lacking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

We loved this place, except for the Wi-Fi. It appears to be an apartment building that was converted to a motel, so each "room" is really a one-bedroom suite. Loved the space and the very cool decor (kind of a West Elm/CB2 look). Lovely pool, too. Only problem was that the Wi-Fi barely worked at all. I'd get maybe five minutes at most and then it would crash. So take your tablet to a coffee shop to catch up and otherwise enjoy the Hibiscus Motel.

This is second time staying there. I scuba dive, like to walk and have a good time. This place had it all for me. The breakfast's were great and in my opinion above average choices. I really like the biscuits and gravey!!! How much time do you really spend in the room!!!!!!

The hotel was great value for the money and we would definitely stay there again. It has been refurbished recently and the rooms were in great shape. The pool and hot tub were in great shape. The hotel staff were all wonderful and very helpful.

Okay, I admit that the reviews here and the price lured me here, but I cannot say enough about this place! I am not usually a fan of this chain, but I'm going to re-think that. This was not just nice, for the price...it felt like we had booked into a luxury hotel!
This place is 2 blocks from the Southernmost Point and South Beach. Not the best beach, but when I can walk to blocks to lie in the sand and swim in turquoise waters, it works for me! There were plenty of restaurants, small stores and shopping within a 1/4 mile...and lots more, if you can walk further. It's just over a mile to the north side of the cay.
I cannot say enough about this room, though. I was shocked when I walked in. The room size must be about 16 x 28...without the room bathroom! We had a double queen, which also had a large sitting area, and a separate sink/vanity outside of the bathroom. Everything was updated and spotless. The beds were firm, but very comfortable. We took the advice of others and booked a pool view. The pool was lovely, and it was nice having a free breakfast available, with some healthy choices.
I would recommend this motel to the fussiest of travelers, and cannot wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: I can't say what the other rooms are like, but the pool view room we had on the 2nd floor was fa...

stayed for two nights for my one year anniversary was a nice place to stay... the only thing is the a/c didn't seem to keep the room cool. Also make sure you get a king if your a couple the doubles are tiny seemed almost to small to be a double. didn't get a chance to try the breakfast. but overall it was a very clean well kept place. I'll deff be back!!! o and its right of Duval so walking distance to EVERYTHING!!!

The swimming pool area is very nice and not crowded with beach chairs. They also have tables with chairs around the area so you can eat something outside if you would like to do that. The rooms are big and clean with a small setting area. The breakfast rooms is nicely done and very clean. They have a few small tables for two outside if you would like to eat your breakfast with no A/C.

What a GREAT place to stay! We loved every second of it. The hotel was reasonably priced. The room was HUGE. The room was spotless! The housekeeping staff does an amazing job - we spent a lot of time at the pool in the morning - and the house keeping staff were running around doing everything! They were great. The front desk staff couldn't have been more helpful. The woman who did the breakfast was very attentive and pleasant! I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about this hotel. It was close to everything - we walked from there to Mallory Square several times during our stay - and back - and it was an easy walk. Very close to the Southern Most point. Loved everything about it.
