The location is great. On the ocean with wonderful park, playground, running/walking paths, great food about a mile away. Far enough from hustle of South Beach but close enough to visit for the day or night.
Most of the staff was friendly and helpful. However they need 3x the staff. Stayed over 4th July weekend. Extremely busy and very understaffed. They few cleaning staff they have were constantly cleaning during all hours and disturbing to guests. The common areas are cleaned around 9am when everyone is out and about. The pool is not ready till about 10.
The building is very old and in need of a complete overhaul. EVERYTHING is falling apart. The hotel doesn't look at all like pictures online. The lobby is bare, the restaurant doesn't have the cars. It is totally neglected. I didn't feel safe. No smoke detectors, broken pieces of tiles everywhere, and exposed wires.
The room (suite with kitchenette) was very comfortable, with sink, microwave, refrigerator, and sitting area. The view to park and beach was great. The room was clean. But everything was very very old and worn and seemed a little unsafe.
The pool area is Terrible. Dirty pool. Dirty pool area. Dirty bathrooms. Dirty hot tub. Dirty restaurant. Unsupervised children, overcrowded pool. No hotel staff at all ever in area. Guests running wild, drinking, dancing, total ghetto area.
Look elsewhere. Will never stay here again.
