“Will Return”
Reviewed 26 January 2010

I stayed at Shula's in January 2010 for 2 nights. Location - very good, easy to get to from the airport, plenty of parking, nice quiet residential area, main street was an enjoyable walk. Room - fine, plenty of room, needs to be updated sometime soon. Hotel - friendly and helpful staff. We ate in Shula's 2 which is a sports bar, food was pretty good, staff excellent, our waiter - Robert was very good. We tried the little Italian restaurant on Main Street - very average, wouldn't go back. Downsides - no room serivce, no fridge in room. Overall we would be happy to go and would recommend to our friends.

We booked a signature room and when we got there we were a bit disappointed as we had asked for one with a pool view. What we got was a good sized room but overlooking the car park!!
Went downstairs for something to eat and whilst going past reception asked if any pool rooms were available. Reply "No, we are booked all weekend".
Following morning, when I was a bit more with it, I asked again and was told that there were plenty available and we had a choice of several rooms.
We changed rooms and although we now had 2 double beds we also had a balcony which we didn't have before. This made it much better for the early evenings when we could sit out on the balcony with a drink and relax for a while before going to get some dinner.
We were not informed that at weekends the inclusive breakfast room which comes with the Signature room rate was not available and we had to eat in the main area. This was OK but if you wanted anything hot you had to pay for it. Admittedly, it was only $4.00 for as much as you wanted so it wasn't too bad. it might sound like a gripe but in fact this was better than the breakfast area on the Monday as that only had a few pastries available.

The pool area at the hotel is really poor. For such a great layout to the whole place the pool area is very bleak. The actual pool is really small and the area surrounding it is just plain concrete.

What the website and the staff don't tell you is that although Shula's 2 is on site that the main Shula's restaurant (the famous one) is not and it is a couple of miles away at the golf course. This came as a bit of a shock to us as we wanted to go there for a good meal and to give me the chance to look at all the Miami Dolphins memorabilia.

Although this was tempered by the surrounding area which had some good restaurants and places to go.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a place away from the main tourist area of Miami but not to be fooled by their website description of the place.

We liked this place so much that we returned around Xmas this year for 2 lovely nights. We stayed in a Signature Room for a senior rate of $103/ night. This area has a private entrance and a lovely breakfast room with a nice breakfast, newspapers, internet, etc. On the day the breakfast room was closed, a nice breakfast buffet was included in the price. The beds are some of the more comfortable we have slept in and the view from the balcony is lovely. This is a well run place with caring staff and hope to return sometime soon.

Another plus is the fact that the restaurant, Shula 2, has some very good, reasonably priced platters for less than $10-a real bargain.

We do feel they could update some of the furniture in the rooms, get flat screen TVs, DVD players and microwaves in the rooms.

We stayed there from Nov 23-26 so we were able to enjoy their "stay 2 nights and get 3rd night free" promotion. What a wonderful deal! We chose this hotel because of the location. My husband used to live on Main Street (2 mins walk from the hotel) before he moved to Toronto 10 years ago and we love Main Street!! We went out at 11:30pm one night to walk on the street and felt completely safe. Main Street is probably the only place you can do that in Miami! The shops, cinema and the bakery nearby are very cute! The hotel staff were very friendly. Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. We used their print station to print our boarding pass and it was fast and easy. Internet (free) speed was good. Free parking with lots of space. The only thing we didn't like is that we requested a room facing the garden but we got a room facing the parking lot. When I asked them I was told that all the rooms with king size bed are facing the parking lot. That's pretty weird and we were quite disappointed because their garden is very lovely. Also, the AC in our room didn't seem to turn off when it gets too cold and I know we set the temperature right. We both got a heavy cold on the departure date. But overall, we are very satisfied with the hotel. It is totally a home away from home and I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends.

I was sorry to hear about the a/c issue you encountered and hope you both recovered from your colds quickly. We hope you to see you again real soon and we will make every effort to accomodate you with a room facing our lagoon/garden. It is one of our most unique features and my personal favorite.

Thanks again for sharing.

We´ve stayed for 5 nights at the Shula´s Hotel from Nov 23 to Nov 28. We found the hotel located in a very pleasant neighbourhood, as Miami Lakes is full of green areas and looks like an oasis in the region. Nice stores and a vey good french-style bakery was just a few meters from the hotel´s entrance. The hotel staff was extremely friendly, especially Diane, who gave us directions and hints on the place. The room was nice, with a very comfortable king-size bed and with a terrific shower! We enjoyed a lot staying at the Shula´s and recommend it wholeheartedly.

The front desk was very courteous and helpful, even bringing one in our party a toothbrush after midnight. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, though the carpet could use updating. The location is very convenient to Landshark Stadium. The shower was awful. The water was lukewarm at best. The AC in our room was very, and I do mean very, loud. You had to crank the volume up on the standard TV (no widescreens here) just to hear over it. The bar closed at 11PM on the Thursday we were there, so we were unable to go in there after our game. Free wireless internet was provided in the room.
