“Close to beach”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

This hotel has easy access to Miami North Beach by city bus. The airport shuttle service does not start until 7:00 A.M., so if you have an early flight they will not accommodate you, even though their reservation office will say they do. Ended up paying for a taxi. Room was comfortable and clean. Had a little must odor. Bed was comfortable.

We stayed here for one night when our cruise returned to Miami. The desk staff were very helpful in trying to arrange a rental car, and for providing suggestions for a day trip to the Everglades. The room was spacious, well-appointed and immaculate. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were good quality. There was a nice-sized flat screen TV. We were on the second floor nearest to the street, but we were not bothered at all by the noise of traffic. The hotel is a bit far from MIA and downtown but the drive isn't bad, seeing how the hotel is close to hwy 1 and I-95. We had a good experience here and would recommend it - the owner and staff work at maintaining a pretty good standard for an older hotel.

This was a nicely maintained older hotel several miles from the beach.If you have a car its just a short drive to the nearest nice beach. Its in a good area and has a lovely bay view. Beds and breakfast were average but not bad. Many good restaurants nearby. The onsite one was closed while we were there.

Stayed at this place while on our trip in Miami. Loved the location as it since on the water and you can see downtown's skyline from the hotel. Only thing we didnt like at this place was that the outside hallways weren't as clean as they could have been. Service was great and so was the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for something that faces the bay

We enjoy this hotel much better when Shuckers is open. It's convenient then, with onsite parking, which is challenging in Miami. However, not many other restaurants close by, and of course you have to drive to the beaches.

The webpage depicted a completely different appearance. Being handicapped, I was extremely disappointed that we needed to lug 2 huge suitcases out of the lobby, through the parking lot, around the building, into another building, onto an elevator to the top floor. Unreasonable! I requested a lower floor at booking, but when I arrived, they informed me lower floors were booked. The walls in the building we stayed at were filthy. A coat of white paint would go a long way to cover-up the dirty walls. The carpet in the hallways on the floor we stayed on were dirty. They are outside walkways… again, putting down proper outdoor flooring would go a long way. The room was “just ok”. I just felt dirty in it. It did not feel clean at all. I felt I need to get out the Lysol and spray everything. As for the breakfast… It was packed with people. The accommodations were not accommodating. I had to stand with my breakfast in my hand until I would find a seat. It was a small area. Overall, did it “work” for the reason we were there for…yes… would be stay there again, probably not… did we feel we paid too much money for what we got… unfortunately yes.

Good value Best Western hotel, near south beach, but much less expensive. Front desk told us how to take the "L" bus into Lincoln Mall road in S. Beach For $2.25 each it was perfect. Good breakfast - included in room cost (cereal, coffee, sausages, eggs, toast, waffles - take your pick). Just get there before 8:30 to avoid crowd. Take breakfast poolside and relax. Shuttle to airport is quick and clean. Desk staff very helpful. Room clean with good quiet air conditioning and nice shower/bath. Fridge, TV, telephone and radio. Thanks for a very pleasant 2 days!

Room Tip: We were in 557. High up. Quiet with nice view to the west. Good air conditioner.
