To be perfectly fair, the room itself was adequate - oddly furnished and decorated, but generally clean and functional.
The issue is the hidden charges together with extremely poor service. The staff was either completely absent or inattentive. They made no effort to assist in any capacity unless specifically asked for help.
After a wait at the front desk that seemed like an eternity, they finally assisted me with check-out. The $35 parking seemed excessive, but this is Miami Beach in December. But the $30 service fee for resort amenities??? I arrived at 11:00 PM and checked out 7:30 AM, but they had the nerve to explain that the fee was for the use of the (sun) lounge chairs and "free" continental breakfast - grocery store ham and American cheese on day-old croissant, all washed down with not-so-great coffee.
Bottom line - find somewhere else to stay. There are many options in better locations, so why subject yourself to this type of nonsense?
