Excellent location on Sunny Isles Beach. Unfortunately, the trend is for these once beautiful motels to allow themselves to get run down waiting for the "right price". To eventually give way to a new high rise condo. It appears this hotel has seen better days. Rooms are outdated and cleanliness an issue. The kitchen had an odor of gas coming from the stove. The A/C was hit and miss in that your manual settings seemed to have little to do with eventual airflow. Maintenance and housekeeping staff seemed distant and aloof, requests for additional towels were met with annoyance. The front desk is either rigid or accommodating depending on the luck of the draw. Don't expect any help from the valet and self parking is a mission. Otherwise, the onsite restaurant and bars were fairly good and prices reasonable. Don't expect to get a chair on the beach for free--you gotta pay for that. We were here in the off season, so maybe things are different in the winter. In sum, very reasonably priced room on the beach and located across the street from PUBLIX supermarket if you want to watch the budget. Enjoy

ugly hotel

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: everything...it is very very very old and in bad conditions. The employees are not friendly. They do not have customer service attitude.
Location: aventura, highways, restaurants, malls, supermarkets
The buildiong is very old, ugly and in bad conditions. Lack of painting and better lobby, better cleaniness. The bathroom terrible, the pool zone totally awful. The employees are not friendly, specially the valet parking (no the Colombian guy) Lack of customer service attitude. I tried to change the hotel...without thinking in how much money i would lose.....I felt very upset...I apologize my family. Bad experience for holydays

It was a nightmare.

Posted Jun 8, 2014
The only thing good about the place is being on the beach. The staff acted as if you owe them a tip every time they do their job. Valet parking is not really valet. A valet even told me that " if you have your key why don't you go get your car". The rooms are motel standard. The air conditioning can't be controlled in the rooms, at least not in the ones I had. The towels are dirty and still show stains (yellowish) when I was about to use them. I had to use my own. After 24 hours I had to leave the rooms(2) that I booked for 2 weeks. They never refunded the valet fees at $190 each although the front desk pretended to have done so. Thank god there was a Hampton near by where I stayed for the remainder of the trip.
