The sense of continuity -- this is an old-school timeshare condo, in contrast to the giant glitzy high rises around it. Relaxing and unpretentious rather than glamorous. Surface parking instead of valet. Access to the gorgeous beach and a nice swimming pool. Grounds are nicely landscaped. A lot of businesses within easy walking distance, including restaurants, bakeries, drugstores, etc. Nicely equipped kitchen so you can actually buy groceries and eat there instead of going out all the time. Layout of the unit was a bit odd -- mainly, the bathroom was difficult to navigate since the door had less than an inch of clearance in front of the toilet, and there wasn't really enough room to hang up towels. Our coffeemaker blew up when we tried to use it, though the maintenance staff was very prompt in replacing it. The exterior trim of the buildings -- doors, windowframes, railings -- looks a little battered.
good location. walls very thin; construction noise next door. wifi was spotty
Leaving. The lobby was fairly presentable. The maintenance man seemed nice. From the beginning, nothing matched our expectations. The place looks NOTHING like the picture above. The area is beautiful, the property's sign only has Days Inn visible so that we drove past it at first. When we finally made it into the "valet" stand" the person slouching there in uniform ignored us for five minutes even tho he was 3 feet away. When I finally lost patience and asked him for help he looked at me as if I had two heads. His colleague then showed up and together they explained that I needed to go to the front desk and check in first. I went inside and the clerk was on the phone berating a customer. When she eventually acknowledged my existence beyond rolling her eyes at the person she was speaking to. I went up to the room with my wife in the tiny elevator and the ancient stained carpet, dirty stained walls, sagging beds and moldy refrigerator were so repellent that we immediately asked for a refund. We got none. To add insult to injury, the valet refused to get our car, instead he just gave the key to my wife and then tried to prevent us from leaving. Our experience was horrible; the disgusting pigsty room, the vile, foul mannered, hostile staff, and the property's has the general ambience of a crime scene from a TV police show. Ick
Location is excellent with great access to public transport, shops, food / restaurants. The room and hotel is old but was clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a high end hotel this isn't for you. If you want value a great Base with clean accommodation you will love it. It can be busy at weekends with a lively local following
Was not hit with all the secret fees that Miami hotels are famous for. Honest, clean and consistent with what was promised.
The waterfront location is great and can't beat the price. The hotel itself is old and not lux at all, mostly families staying there. There's nice tiki huts you can rent on the sand and a restaurant with decent pizza and burgers and a small bar ($11 for 2 beers). It's ok as far as cleanliness but don't expect too much from the staff, it was hard to get extra towels. I was charged an extra $70 on top of my reservation for $12/day self parking, and a $13/day resort fee, and a $23 room upgrade for a kitchenette. I wouldn't have minded if it wasn't that we practically had to beg for extra towels and the pool was always so dirty I didn't want to let my 7 year old go in it.
Location The hard bed, tiny handheld showerhead, no main showerhead, the front desk would not let me check out late - I ran a marathon and would have loved to come back to the hotel and shower before my flight instead of having to wait until getting home. Rude staff - they knocked on my door early in the morning 1 day before my check out day and asked if I was checking out. Never will return!
They were booked out. We could not stay there. Very unfriendly.
Construction next door
Nothing Beds were very uncomfortable and we never had warm water water pressure was horrible and I found cockroaches in my room
Not much The facility was extremely dirty. The one upside was the location that it had a pool on the beach and even that closed at sundown. The door had a mag card key slot that didn't actually work, we had to use a hard copy key to go in and out. We also had to manually lock the door each time we came in and out. there was a room next to us that was empty and really creepy with a big pad lock on the door. Everything was very outdated, the grout in the room and bathroom was dirty and almost black. The valet was $20/night on top of $15/day resort fee on top of nightly rate and the valet took 20-30 minutes each time to get the car. The staff were pleasant I had no complaints about that but overall the facility was just outdated and did not live up to the photos online.
The beach access was perfect. The pool was clean. how is this a resort? They charged $15 for a resort fee, for it being a regular hotel. The were only 3 elevators and it was packed everytime. Room service is unheard of there. The room had a tv stand that fit one of those tv with the big back. Like really? Bathroom was cramped. Oh, and you have to pay the $20 for the resort valet. Smh. Not good.
The only thing is good for this hotel is location. Hotel is old, moldy bathrooms, windows that are not secured, on a windy day feels like windows will fall off, and you can hear the wind at night, which is loud. You pay for your stay, yet if you want to use lounge at the beach, they charge you additional $30.00 fee daily per person which is not included in hotel fees, I feel this hotel is a rip-off.
We liked being on the beach. The Bell hops were very helpful and prompt. Food was bad and expensive. Room was loud, stinky and tiling was bad enough to stub your toes on. Additional 'resort' fee and valet charges made the place $35 more expensive each day than the base price implies. They gave us a first floor room for our anniversary with no view and loud noises on the roof. Don't stay on the 1st floor.
Right on the beach, nice hotel, great view. Most of the staff are very friendly. There is no parking and you have to valet your car. The valet's aren't very nice especially when you have to get your car back.
Very friendly staff. Complaints are fixed promptly. Two cons: there is no ventilation in the restroom and the windows cannot stay open – had to prop a container to hold the window up.
The location is excelent The Check-In hour at 4:00pm its too late!!! and Check-Out at 11:00am... that's a rob!!! Most hotels have their check-in around 1:00 to 3:00pm, and the check-out at 12:00pm...please fix that!!! ...and above that, a bald man in the front desk was very despot and conceited. Nobody wants to return with that man.
Not worth 200 for one night
There is absolutely nothing positive about this hotel shy of possibly where it is located. It is delapidated, outdated, dirty and staff are rude with the exception of the bellman. In all my years I have never stayed at a worse hotel.
Everything The cleaning lady would come very late in the afternoon
Beach front hotel with easy access to the water. Valet only parking for $20 a day, charged for breakfast with tip included ($32 for 2 of us). Incredibly dirty and outdated, furniture was broken. Very loud, lobby bar overpriced and served obviously drunk patrons.
Water front intent as it was built Our first room pest problem noisy Ac rattling water pipe leaking toilet and more Totaly out dated second room pest multable ant roach leaking shower second day we could not turn on to shower arrogant house keeping noisy Ac furniture and doors falling a part pool staff arrogant and don't know how to handle some guest have zero understanding others disrespect female we have to call security to handle just do your self a favor stay a way
It was a great experience ! Good service
Aire acondicionado sin termostato. manual. faltan cajones para ropa.
Cleanilness, staff , and no crowds. No.
The rooms were large and clean; nice pool and beachfront access; walking/biking trail next to beach was great Room service and restaurant service do not begin until 7:30; would have liked coffee maker in the room for early risers
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Air Con was very noisy in both rooms. The pool bar only stayed open until 5 pm. I would have liked to sit outside to have a cocktail in the evening.
I liked the convience of resturants and shops. the cost of parking $18.00
Nice place to stay, very clean, confortable, and friendly. Well you asked so here goes...I think it should be c/o for guest and the beach too, especially in all the heat we are having.
not much. expensive - have to pay on arrival for whole trip and even sunbeds outside. poor service. dated. Hated it.
Have stayed at hotel for past 20 years. Enjoy staff, location and character of the property. no
Balcony view was amazing. Friendly staff and great location right on the beach.
Beautiful quiet hotel in nice neighbourhood, direct acces to the beach! Pitty there were renovation-works going on. When that is finished everything is perfect! no
Smelled horrible. Grime on floors. Crackheads fighting in other rooms
Housekeeping was accommodating. Location/neighborhood. Safety is not on my list.
Rooms are very clean
The bed was very comfortable. The first night there I walked out of the elevator into a huge cloud of pot smoke and several highly intoxicated people running and yelling in the hallway. As my stay progressed I learned that those "guests" had actually been living there in the hotel for some time. The staff did nothing to take control of the situation. Furthermore, in the evenings, there were several people just hanging around outside the buildings... I felt very uncomfortable any time that I had to go out to my car or to dinner...
The hotel is well located, but has an unpleasant odor. With some problems in the bathroom which were then fixing. On the other all right
Olía a mariguana
Decent wifi. Room was comfortable and quiet The room seemed a bit old. Could use refurbishment. The extractor in the bathroom wasn't working
Nothing It was a pimp hotel , drug house! They had about 5 pimps and hoes all night in the lobby the housekeepers are rude they barely clean and want you to leave the room so they can put the SAME sheets on the bed sweep and lift the toilet seat up so You think they did something NEVER AGIN
The breakfast wasn't too bad my kids enjoyed it. There were random people alway hanging around in the lobby and out in the parking lot. I'm assuming that they live there. Each morning it would smell like weed in the bathroom I don't know if the people next to me were smoking it or what.
I was impressed rooms extremely ckean. Hotel personal very pleasant. Nice hotel for your money. Needs an updated ice machine does not look very clean and ice comes out watery.
It was located a few miles from my shool, which was a big plus for me. Parking lot in front of the hotel. That is about it. Internet service was very inconsistent and slow throughout my stay (and I stayed there for 5 days). Water pressure in the shower - weak, while the temperature of the water was flactuating during my shower. The sheets barely fit the bed and would consistently come out, which was annoying to me personally. Choice of TV channels is poor. No ESPN. The little fridge in the room barely keeps things cold. Cooler and ice did a better job for me. Bottom line is that it is a relatively cheap place to stay. A roof over yournhead and a bed to sleep on. That is it. And be ready to do a lot if sacrifices.
El tamaño de las habitaciones, limpieza y comodidad de las camas. No controlan el fumado de marihuana en las habitaciones, al menos en el 6to piso. Desayuno poco suculento.
Nice staff, good breakfast and location (right by the beach). I sometimes stay at the Travelodge and this one was really disappointing compared to the others. TV not working; water leaking in the bathroom; no possibility to shut down the AC (ended up catching a cold); cleanliness of the room could be better.
Absolutely nothing. No air conditioning, ino ice, desk personnel Registered in two adjacent rooms, 239 and 240. Total 4 adults and one 2 year child. Air conditioning useless. No ice in ice machine. Water leaking at base of toilet. Solution was spread towels on floor until the proper wrench could be found on next day. After additional compaining, relocated to different room with fair air conditioning (room 259). Due to heat in second room, all 5 guests moved to the relocated room. Result 5 guests in one room and paid for 2 rooms. Relocated room, 259, had exposed and loose electrical outlet. High risk for 2 year old. Music played past 4:00 a.m. in adjacent guest room.
Right on a beach very old
The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The lack of food options. Dish network as the cable provider. The tiniest bit of bad weather and the TV lost the signal.
Near the airport.Nice and modern interiour. Good bed, big tv screen. Breakfast room is on the top floor overseeing the air traffic. Beautiful panorama. I was very pleased with the free wifi connection. If you don't have a computer, you can use one of the Mac's in the lobby, bring your credit card along.
The room is clean, I found it very nice, quiet even though it is near an airport. I did like it very much. Yhere is only one ceiling at the entrance of the door, fron inside that need to stay. Other than that the room was perfect & clean. Thank you very much for a super clean room that you comfort me.
room was large clean the water was cold I let the bath tub run for 15 min. and was still to cold for a shower. one would think for the price you could have a warm shower before you travel!
The hotel was very near to the hotel which ran a shuttle service, needing only a call to the hotel to find out where it was. Checking in was easy and the room was spacious. we had a double room and shared with our daughter, for the night which was fine. The airport run way could be seen from our room but you could not hear any noise from the planes. The buffet in the evening was adequate as we had just flown in from the Uk, but not if you were looking for a large ot meal. the staff in the hotel were all friendly and helpful. I felt the the buffet breakfast was again adequate but not what i was expecting. I always think of american breakfasts and bacon go together but none, although you could cook your own waffles. We nibble at breakfast but ate some more later.
Close to airport and has a shuttle going there every 30mins. Great breakfast. Rooms are isolated from highway and airport noise. Clean rooms. Not a huge one but the parking space was too far from the hotel.
The staff was extremely professional and flexible, not pressuring you to checkout immediately, and checking you in without a fuss. There wasn't much to dislike with this property. I cannot complain
Restaurant is open until late at night, rooms clean and comfortable, airport shuttle drivers polite and helpful. Not enough check in personnel at counter.
This hotel is located near to the airport. Rooms are large and clean. Price is fair. Staff was rude in the front desk. The room was noisy all the night. Also, there were old tobacco smell in the room in the interior material, linens or from the ventilation nonetheless the room was sold as non-smoking.
The room is very good and clean. Everything that is said in the reservation is done. Internet service and parking with no extras fees were very good for me. It should have a freezer at each room. Breakfast is poor.
It was close to the airport, free "breakfast", free shuttle service, free wifi. The breakfast was terrible. We couldn't even eat the "eggs" and all the bread was stale. I would compare it to gas station food. Pre-packaged everything. When we arrived there were no luggage carts and the employees were kind of annoyed that I would even ask and offered no help, they just watched us struggle. The room was pretty clean but the common areas were not. If you just need a bed for the night, it's a good price but I wouldn't recommend it for an extended stay.
This Hotel property offers many amenities that most others at this price range do not offer. It's very close to being a full service property. There customer relation skills are second to none. Housekeepers were quite annoying and persistent.
Close to airport
convenient hotel with a check in around 1 in the night. friendly staff breakfast was very poor, nothing continental about that. other facilities were not that great as the pictures should tell
Close proximity to the beach. We stayed at the change management period to Marenas Resort. The services were not good at all.
The room was very small comparing to other hotels of same category
The location is the best.
I loved the pool even though it was not for doing laps. The view from my room was awesome. The food was great and everything was very clean.
Great location; spacious rooms; kitchen facilities; decent work out facilities. The hotel is showing some wear. Front desk and bell station are not particularly attentive. At check in, the bathroom in the original room was not clean.
The staff were very helpful, the suite was exceptional
Kind staff. Excellent handling of an unusual situation. The room was a bit small. Also the closet is tiny and can only be opened by blocking the TV. No room to store luggage.
close to the beach
great beach did not receive my wake-up call, which was critical in making 6 AM flight.....very unhappy with the hotel
You will need a car or fairly long and expensive cab rides to go anywhere fun
The beach access was wonderful. The bar and restaurant had by far the best service of almost any where I've ever been. No doubt will return.
Die Freundlichkeit aller Mitarbeiter ist wirklich erstklassig, Pool/Strand-Area sehr schön angelegt und gepflegt. Wir waren jeden Morgen am gleichen Frühstücksbuffet, es wurde jedoch jedes Mal anders berechnet (von 40-53 $ für 2 Pers.), haben wir nicht verstanden.
Comfort , cleaning , food etc Valet parking very slow
The view tv did not work. had repairman in the room at 1 am!
Hôtel très bruyant
The beds are comfortable and the rooms are sound proof. There was broken glass by the mini fridge when we first arrived. There was left over food particles in the cabinets. The bathroom was equipped for 2 people even though 4 were on the reservation. The outside vinyl wicker lounge chairs were broken. The person at the towel stand didn't know if there was a vending machine on site. When you check in, they swipe your credit card for incidentals, once I returned home, there was a charge on the credit card. When I called to inquire, I was told we used items from the mini bar. I told them this was not true because we had gone across the street to Publix and the liquor store to buy alcohol and even left more than what was provided. They reluctantly reversed the charges.
i love everithing,you guys,did for me and my family.thanks,a lot
The hotel is beautiful with two pools, great spa, everything you would expect from a Trump Resort. Thought the price could have been a bit better during these tough economic times and considering the hotel was half empty.
great value for money Not in a very hip and happening area
Excellent amenities and beach Locatio All good
The staff was very nice as they upgraded my room to an ocean front view. I had a great view with a very large room. The hotel needs to be remodeled. The bathroom was very old and peeling paint from the vanity. The room had a very awkward smell every time entered.
Beautiful surroundings and ecellent food. Room was beyond expectations!
Dominique was very rude front desk! The hotel d ouble charged me! I'm still waiting on a refund for double charged resort fees! I was told free Wifi and they still charged me for wifi! I asked for a bay view.. And they gave me a shopping plaza view .. I would've paid extra for a better view but the guy Domnique lied and said I already had a bay view .. :(
It was close. The guy at the reception was nice. The driver charged me to drop me off at the airport.
Staff Area Value for money The Carpet smells
The people working were loud and inconsiderate. I wasn't able to sleep. Also, there was a roach in the bathroom.
It was value for money, quiet and comfortable with pleasnat and helpful staff. The bed was most comfortable. A complimentary shuttle service to the malls will greately improve the hotel's occupancy rate The distance from shopping malls and the state of the outside surroundings.
Breakfast is free, shuttle to airport is free. Dirty, walls are very thin. Noisy, there was used shampoo in the bathroom.
It was close to Airport and there are public transport to it. The bathroom is too small and the water drainage system in bathroom is not good.
Staff was helpful and friendly. Free airport pick up, close to the Miami International Airport, decent breakfast, nearby to several ethnic retaurants ... all for a very reasonable rate. Bed was super comfortable with excellent linens. The room could have been cleaner but the bed and bedding as well as the bathroom were very clean. Just the floors seemed a little scruffy especially in the hallways.
Close the airport The smell of the place
ese hotel definitivamente no sirve muy malo ,demasiado dinero por un hotel tan viejo,las habitaciones sucias, no lo recomiendo para nada
It was close to the airport, I really like the fact they had an airport shuttle. Close to some restaurants if you don't drive (pizza, McDonald's) Limited cable channels but for the price it's not bad
The bed had a duvet cover, which my wife and I prefer since it gets washed much more often than blankets. The bed was very comfortable. Floor was tile, not carpet, and obviously clean. Shuttle service was clean, vehicle in very good shape, and drivers helpful with bags. Tiny bathroom. Large dead bug sticking out from under the door across the hall. The advertised breakfast did not exist. Noises from hallway and outside came in a little too clearly. Seemed like a very old motel being maintained as best it could without remodeling. TV was CRT, not advertised flat screen.
The location to the airport the "contnental breakfast" - what whas "continental"?
Mer eller mindre ingenting Fjern det fra lista
Ikke mye, pris var lav, rommet stort, men standar på hotellet var langt under pari. Gammelt, muggent, hele hotellet trenger en skikkelig renovering.
Det lå nær til flyplassen, og hadde dessuten et hyggelig bassengområde Frokosten kunne forbedres betraktelig. Hotellet bærer preg av å være gammelt og slitt.
Vennligst skriv minst 15 ord
Likte ikke noe. Rommet var rått og fuktig, og luktet råte. Muggflekker flere steder. Rimelig skittent, men sengtøyet var rent. Oppussing
Nothing The hotel on the internet stated resturant on site for a great dining experience. There were not restaurant on site. No room service. You had to order from near by restaurants and wait for a hour or more for delivery. It also stated it had a bar and you could enjoy your drinks on your balcony. Which was also a lie. They had a poolside bar which was close on rainy days which were 2 out of the 3 days we were there.
The view from the balcony is mesmerizing! Beach is great!
Fair for the price in miami area....no room service which is inconvenient... No room service at all...
Hotel is clean and staff very helpful The hotel is fine for $130 per night, but given what they charge ($230 with resort fee included) it is by far the worst value for money deal that I've done in my whole life. Would prefer to pay $20 more and go to the Trump Resort which is 20 times better and only 2000 ft away...
Great place, friendly staff, good location. Valet parking fees.
Proximity to beach Size of room
desig additional charges
Buenas habitaciones, aunque pequeñas, modernas y bien cuidadas Pésima atención de la gente del fron desk. Te cobran por todo! Y en exceso. Cobrar por recibir paquetes? Cobran $20 de resorte fee, pero los chicos de la playa levantan las reposeras y sombrillas muy temprano, y si vas a las 5 pm ya no te dan reposeras
Some of the staff were very good/accommodating, but others were rude. Facilities were decent for price. Excellent location with many nearby must haves (Starbucks, grocery store, Walgreens) within a block. Hotel was minimalistic. Gym was decent. Some staff were rude. You get a free breakfast muffin, which is a mini-muffin, but I guess you get what you pay for. I'd rather have a cheaper price than a substandard breakfast. They charge for any checkouts past 11 am, and you can't check in until 3.
The beds are extremely comfortable! I didn't find the staff to be very friendly, very business like.
The location was central. Staff was friendly. Hotel was secure. The bar and on site restaurant was nice and the staff very friendly. My room was extremely small. Balcony was about the size of a table. If you crane your neck you could see the water. Poor Desigb in shower no way to turn on without getting wet.
The location. I ordered the room that was not a suite. When we got there it was smaller than my child's bedroom and we immediately has to upgrade to a suite. The room was so small that we felt clostrophic.
the friendly and helpful personell the restaurant part and the pool dont come up to expectations for a hotel at the self named "Riviera of Miami"
I liked alot of the view,the beach is calm,is very family...the facilyties like a supermarket,retaurants,pharmacie,etc...
I particularly liked the spacious suite, the unobtrusive atmosphere and the proximity to the beach
1. Location (pé na areia). 2. Excellent size bathroom. 3. Neutrogena products. 4. Lots of pillows. 5. Good convenience store in the basement. 6. Free internet in the business centre. 7. Free USA Today 1. Thousands of little ants over the sink table (in the 14th floor!!!). 2. Very dirty carpet close to the cooking area. 3. Fridge did nor work properly. 4. Air conditioning very noisy and difficult to regulate. 5. Little terrace very dirty. 6. Not enough hangers. 7. TV remote control did not work well. 8. Parking outreageously expensive. 9.

All 7 daily rates debited to my AMEX 2 days before my arrival.
Hotel is in great location, right on beach. Rooms can be slightly jaded, but nothing serious. Bathroom excellent with good toiletries, and all rooms have at least coffee makers/fridge/microwave and also access to free washer/dryer facility.Stayed on 27th floor room with spectacular side ocean/bay/city views. Do not need a car as bus stops outside every 20 mins or so to take to South Beach/Downtown or Aventura Mall. Several restaurants within a few minutes walk, and recommend Timo's Italian (just past Denny's). Overall a second great stay at this quiet beach hotel. Doubletree sent a welcome email a week before the stay, which unfortunately was incorrect (had only reserved for 2 nights instead of 3) This was eventually sorted by booking.com, and our arrival at the hotel went without a hitch. If you get an email from the hotel just make sure it is correct.
excellent location close to beach staff very helpful and friendly parking expensive as only valet available. rooms could do with a little maintenance work wouldn,t need a lot of money to be spent on them to take them from ok to very good but a pleasent stay.
Excellent location o the beach
The staff were very friendly and made every attempt to make me and my friends feel comfortable.
Within walking distance of beach and Bal Harbor Shops. Full kitchen in guest room. Pretentious "Asian fusion" décor, with overwhelming perfume smell permeating common areas. Tiny pool, no direct beach access, internet access costs extra ... no idea why "resort fee" was charged. Tiny elevator. Also, air conditioner in guest room didn't work properly.
The room, cleanliness, staff and price were unbeatable. The area around the hotel...not so much, but they can't help that. It's close to airport, affordable, safe and nice. The pool was a little gross with grime around the edge of the pool, but the water appeared to be clean.
The hotel was very clean check in time coming back from our cruise was quite delayed they seem to have been shorthanded on the cleaning staff I called specifically about the transportation from the airport to the Miami Port from the hotel I asked if there was any charge they said no but from their return from Miami port to the hotel they were going to charge $20 per person so we had to find our
Loved everything about the hotel and staff. Not a restaurant so you need to 'travel'.
I liked the sitting area in the room and shower. This hotel did not have enough parking and was in a run-down location.
La habitaciÃ³n y ubicaciÃ³n No
The staff were very friendly and helpful, understanding what we needed and providing it before we asked. It was quite a relief since we arrived around 2am after a full day of travel. On top of that the room was very comfortable.
Close to airport and size of room along with airport shuttle service. The AC was not functioning properly and also vending machines did not work.
The cleanliness of the hotel and the modern interior always meets my expectations. The breakfast can be improved
The cleanliness The ice maker was on the first floor.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Easy check-in! They even let us check-in early! Front desk was great! Recommended food choices. Alerted us on who not to contact for food. Every time we went to the bar/lounge, there wasn't a bartender. There was a sign in the elevator indicating a happy hour, but it didn't exist. Come to find out later, the happy hour was at their sister hotel across the street.
Although I had issues with the first two rooms, the staff fixed them IMMEDIATELY. Rooms have refrig, microwave, wireless printing, etc. Staff in general is very helpful. FYI Clarion Inn has NONE of the above. That I had to deal with the 2 issues in the first place. But again, the staff made IMMEDIATE corrections.
