I stayed at this hotel and I can truly say is was the best hotel for value around. It is located central to everywhere you need to and just walking distance to ocean drive and IMean the main part not somewhere remote. Mitch runs the hotel and although it looks old inside its fine just to relax and sleep as you won't be spending all your time in the hotel in Miami. Don't waste money staying on ocean drive which Is just 30secs away from this hotel. Yes it's old but Mitch who runs it is fabulous and he will come around with his little dog who follows him around asking you whether you need sheets changing and new towels. He is truly a remarkable guy with many stories to tell you as he was there when miami was not what it is today! Just tell him you read the reviews on trip advisor from the couple who stayed in room 310. Give it a go for a few days and you will see why I have said this is the best option. Mitch Tel: 30 5532 09 58If you stay on ocean drive you won't get any sleep as all hotels are bars and play music till the early hours of the morning. This may sound appealing at first but trust me if you have not slept for 7 days your entire stay will be miserable and you won't be able to appreciate the days and activities in the morning or infact evenings.I'm not too keen on the tour guide there by the name of freddy. We had bad experience with him when we went with some other tour guide and when they came to pick us up freddy knowingly told them that we were not in even though he had seen us. Really shady guy and plus you don't need to use him as you will see why below. TourWhen you come out of the hotel go up Collins avenue right to the end. You will walk past the dash store on the opposite side and then at the end of the street less than 5 mins walk you will come to Walgreens supermarket. When you walk in to your left you will see a little stand will all tour info and guides with a female by the name of Patricia stood there. She offered us tours that were otherwise for $55 at $20 and loads at less than half the price.She may ask you to go to a timeshare presentation that lasts 2 hours one morning where WESTGATE will persuade you to invest in a timeshare but DON'T DO IT! just humour them and leave and you will be dropped off to your hotel shortly after. They will also pick you up. At the end you get two gifts and you can get at rental at dramatically reduced price or two other gifts like going to sawgrass shopping mall for $30 for both. This would otherwise cost you $30 each! Then use the second gift for whatever you want like Everglades etc. The good thing is that one you been to Patricia and this WESTGATE presentation after that she will do trips for you for half the price ! This will save you hundreds unlike other guides trying to sell you ones at double the price. I know you have to sit through the presentation but just interested and you will be then sorted for every trip for your entire stay saving you lots of money that you can spend shopping. First I recommend you do the miami city tour so you have a good overview of what's worth revisiting and this covers most of it. We then went to key west via the our that Patricia arranged but the seats were not comfortable at all and the windows were dirty so you could not get clear pics as this is apparently a scenic tour. When you stay a this hotel go to the same supermarket - Walgreens and stock up in water and bits that you will need through out the day. Trust me paying $2 for a bottle of water soon adds up when you are there all the time and this won't cost you anything near that.
