The hotel is perfect if you are planning go around whole from Fort Laudeldale to South MIami. The cleaniness of the rooms is not very well. You will see in your room a couple of cucarachas.

Pros: The helpful concierge.
Cons: Everything.
Location: No stores around the hotel, just appartment towers
We were very disapointied with this hotel. Beds were hard as rocks, The room was clean but the washroom walls seem as if they were getting the start of black mold or something. A dirty garbage can was forgotten inside of the cabinet under the sink. The swimming pool in the picture is an embellished picture of the actual pool. There was one bar at some point in this hotel, as we could see by the old sign hanging from a ceiling. No sit down restaurant service on site, except for breakfast.. YOu would have to order the meal to be eaten in a dark room. The nearest restaurant was 8 blocks away which can seem an eternity walking under the sign at 32C . . Fences at the front and back of the hotel are rusty and give a very bad impression.

Hallway smell stink, inside room had strong Bleach which I would not want my 5 yrs. Old to sleep in for 2 nights. Wall cracked all over. I was so disappointed so I called Expedia.com To get me out off this hotel as soon as possible. I was so glad that an agent at Expedia help solved this problem and move on to another hotel
