Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed for one night. Room was clean. Hotel is old. Staff was helpful. Price is low. The old saying is you get what you pay for. Average hotel breakfast. Close to restaurants and board walk. Over all location was good.

My weekend here was good. I paid a total of $146 for Friday - Sunday. The hotel is a bit run down, however they are doing a lot of repairs to fix this up. The lobby has new furniture in it, as well as a computer for guests use (Free Wifi). The lobby also has some vending machines and is adjacent to a sun porch. The sun porch gives great views and is relaxing. You can eat the continental breakfast out there. The breakfast included donuts, muffins, cereal, orange juice, coffee and breads for toast. The check in was smooth and quick, the staff was wonderful. The room was very spacious. Some of the furniture and floors showed some wear & tear. However, the beds, the sink, toilet and shower are new. You get plenty of closet/storage space. When you arrive, your personal room air conditioner is already on. The TV is an older flat screen with regular TV channels (about 7 channels), The location and neighborhood is good too! Its mid-beach, so about 2 miles from south beach or a 10 min. cab ride. The beach is literally the next block up. There's a liquor store on the corner with some great specials. There are so many restaurants within a two block radius, like Carrabbas Italian Grill on the corner. The area is quiet and the Indian Creek River is beautiful in the morning! The parking is only street though, but I take public transportation when I travel in which a stop was near the hotel, I enjoyed my stay, everything was good not as a perfect as a 5 star hotel but its definitely livable and affordable.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor or above on the north side for views of the Indian Creek River

after driving around miami beach for hours and hearing the rates they ask for in some hotels we came across venezia hotel much quieter neighborhood than south beach parking is meterd street parking one dollar an hour and only enforced 10 hours a day you do the math. south beach choices were ony parking garages at $30 a day or valet at $50 .and u must call them 30 minuites in advance for your car.the building is in need of repair and furniture is somewhat outdated but for the price its clean. and rooms are very big and they offer all guest a free continental breakfast and free wi fi there is also a computer for u to use in the lobby from what i understand from other guest that i met during my stay it is under new ownership and its much better than it was in the past.the rooms have new beds and new comforters as well as new pillows and from what i see they have internet in the rooms and security camers on every floor as well as safes in every room its really like staying at grandmas house old but comfy so dont belive everything u hear or read there is always 2 sides to a story

You get what you pay for here!
Obviously not the worlds best hotel, but for me it was the cheapest.
The staff are as helpful as they can be, the rooms are basic, the A/C will rumble 24/7, the TV is ancient and the wifi isn't the best!
However the rooms are clean, and the location is absolutely perfect for a short stay.
The 150 bus from the airport stops outside, and the beach is less than 50 metres away.

Basically you get what you pay for, don't stay here if you are a princess!

My friend and I booked this hotel as part of hotwire package not know what the hotel we are getting. As soon as we entered the hotel we knew this is a very dangerous hotel only good for those who wants to bring street girls here for a night.

Room - Bedsheets are never changed and will have germs from other folks and dirty stains. High chance of getting bed bugs. Hard pillow which are never changed or cleaned. Door is broken, missing locks and you see people checking your door at night for the opportunity to rob you. If you don't mind getting diseases and coming out uncleaned then this is the hotel for you otherwise avoid at all cost. If you love your life then change hotel right away unless you like to get robbed, diseased and food poisioning.

Hotel lobby - 100 year old lobby and staff very shady who most likely will not serve you.

Breakfast - Do not try as you will get diareha and all sorts of food poisioning.

Security - Non existent and do not leave your bags in the room as they will be missing as soon as you leave. Keep them in the car and you will feel more safe.

Location - This is the only plus point is the locaiton otherwise this motel should be demolished to save human lives.

Do not book at any cost even if its free or they give you another room. Not worth your life!!!

Room Tip: Change hotel if you love your life. This motel will only give you new disease, food poisoning and w...

I read really bad reviews on this place but it wasn't that bad. If you're visiting Miami Beach to enjoy the clubs and beach and not be cooped up on the room this is a very affordable place near everything. Everything was indeed outdated. The staff was friendly and helpful and spoke pretty good English. The room was clean. I wish it wouldve had a microwave though. My major concern was the elevator. The inspection certificate said it expired in 2012...two years ago. But with this hotel you get what you pay for. They had a small breakfast in the morning but I missed it. My friend complained about how outdated everything was but unless you wanna spend over $300 a night then this was decent enough. A block away walking distance from beach. On street meter parking...no issues with security of area

You get what you pay. The hotel is old, something is broken, etc? Yes. But if you are looking for a top quality hotel in miami, you should be able to pay $500+. Don't be worried with all those bad reviews. The hotel is just fine and very well located.
