Close to the beach, nice staff, clean room
Posted Nov 17, 2016
A bit disappointed but happy overall. I stayed at a 4-bed shared room, the first room I was assigned to was a disappointment. Electricity socket did not work, locker was damaged, bathtub looked old and dirty. However front desk staff was nice and changed another room for me, which had none of the above problems.
Whether location is good or not depends on your plan. If you're mainly staying in Miami Beach area, this hotel is excellent as it is right next to the beach and a few bus stops from Ocean Drive. However, if you need to go to the downtown frequently or if you're a shopaholic that need to visit major shopping malls, think twice before you stay here because bus service in Miami is awful and there is no train/subway in this area. Going to major shopping malls takes time, for instance it is a 2-hr bus ride from Dolphin Mall, there is only 1 bus per hour to/from the mall (route 238) and it could just disappear for no reasons, almost had me missing my flight..
