Not the getaway that I had hoped for.
Posted Oct 11, 2016
Let me start by saying that the best part of my stay at the Starlite was my view every morning.... That's pretty much where it ends. The funny thing is that I really only have one complaint about the Starlite. I stayed there 4 nights and EVERY SINGLE NIGHT I suffered through this horrible piercing noise coming from the toilet. The noise only stopped for a few minutes when I flushed the toilet, but would start up again within minutes. The noise was so loud that you could hear it over the air conditioner, which is right beside the bed, and through the closed bathroom door. When I brought this to the hotels attention the following morning after checking in, they assured me that it would be taken care of... So, that second night I was confident that I would get some sleep, but I was wrong! The noise was still there and I still had to get up every 15 or so minutes to flush the toilet just to make it stop. By the 3rd day, after reporting the noise again, the front desk person was under the impression that maintenance had addressed the problem. She then told me that it was unfortunate because nobody would be there to fix it until Monday, the day I'm checking out. So, for the 3rd and 4th nights I had to suffer that loud squealing noise. I don't know if other rooms had the same issue, but this experience was enough to keep me away from the Starlite in my future visits to Miami Beach.
