Pros: distance to the beach
Cons: quality of service of the staff, cleanliness of the entire hotel
Location: caught the bus everywhere I went which was not a problem
never any clean towels, staff not able to speak English, very rude, would never stay there again, would never recommend this hotel to anyone either, only good thing I can say is I got it for a good price in a package deal,

Pros: location and large rooms
Cons: One room I stayed in had a noisy fridge. Major problem with toilet if you are a larger person. VERY tight squeeze for me and I'm fairly trim.
Location: Tons of good food nearby. Nice shopping without the craziness of South Beach. Good fishing right in your own back yard!
To be fair, the facilities are dated but look at what you get... large rooms, kitchenette with a real fridge and right on the water. Try it out and you won't be disappointed especially for families. Expect to pay for parking or to drive around for a while to find open street parking.

Location: No fast food and pricey to leave
People are complainers...love it for what it is-a clean, comfortable hotel right on the beach. Only problem was that toilet didn't flush until like 10th time.

You pay for location/Ugly Hotel/Lackadaisical pers

by from Colombia
Posted Jun 25, 2013
Pros: Location / Price
Cons: General aspect (interior and exterior), looks cheap, very old, over repaired, attention and maintenance is awful, shame on Bestwestern with this MHote
Location: Great location, just in front of the beach, nice and safe area.
First of all, it is not a hotel, is a Motel Really Ugly "MHotel", is has been painted and painted and plastered over and over again, C.A system is noisy. Personel at the front desk rude and lackadaisical as most of the maintenance and service people, the manager or chief of the maintenance and room service people goes around the hotel yelling to the employees what to do, where to go etc. We arrive at 2 am after a long and exhausting trip, and all the front desk guy said is, Yes? (Aroom was his name or so). We reserved two beds bedrooms (for 7 people) and the gave us two 1 queen bed bedrooms, they say it was all they have and that rooms were subject to availability (nowhere in the booking page said that), after talking and arguing a lot with the front desk guy (Aroon) they change one the rooms for a two beds, we didn´t care about the other since we use the sofa and was ok, we didn´t want to ruin our vacations. Location is great, just in front of the beach and in a nice area. Breakfast and WiFi is free and included. There is a parking fee of about 19U$ / Night !!! If you don´t care about a mediocre room, but location and a place to sleep near nice areas, this is a good hotel for you. If you want a good service and a decent space to stay, this is the wrong place to stay.

Good and affordable

Pros: beach, two pools, kitchen and space enough for 4
Cons: updating and a deep cleaning on a more regular basis
Location: access to all beach stuff and easy access into Miami for other touristy things
Nothing fancy here, but we were comfortable. We made up the sofa for my little one to sleep on. My other daughter and I slept on one double bed and my husband slept on the other. It worked. We had a big walk in coset and a kitchen, so we ate in twice, saving some money. The place definitely needs updating and was just OK in terms of cleanliness, but given that it was right on the beach and also had a OK breakfast, we had a nice time. If you have lots of money to go somewhere else, go for it. For an economical vacation at the beach, this is the place for a little family.

Great location

Pros: Location, staff, view
Cons: DVD player or better cable.
Location: See above!
We upgraded to a deluxe ocean view room, SO WORTH IT. Woke up every morning to sip coffee on the balcony and watch a cloudy sunrise over the ocean... Which was gorgeous. The beach is literally downstairs, super convenient to throw on your swimsuit and walk down for a bit, come back for lunch and go back out. You can rent chairs and umbrellas but its kind of expensive, $10-$25, but if you are starting to burn its worth it! The location in Surfside as opposed to South Beach we thought was perfect, far less crowded and no one cares if you look good or not ;) and its right on Collins ave with buses for $2/person to take you to south beach or miami or whatever. or you could take a cab like we usually did for $15-20 to SB. A ritzy outdoor mall the BalHarbour shops is a few minute walk down the street. Staff was all super friendly, front desk and housekeeping. It is a best western so it's not the most luxurious accommodations but there was a fridge microwave and coffee maker, as well as an oven and some dishes so it was pretty nice. Also had a little couch and chair and some plastic furniture on the balcony. The only thing I really missed was a DVD player or being able to order movies in the room for when it was raining. It was basic channels and didn't even come in well when it was storming, which being Florida I imagine happens a lot. Rained a bit everyday but usually not very long, and it is their rainy season.
