Recent reviews

Good 7.8 From 518 reviews

Good 6.0
Good location, cold breakfast
Was ok for our needs (a couple of days stay before flying back to UK from MIA) but would say more geared towards couples rather than families. Room was very small - couldn't open bathroom door if someone on toilet!!! Also, the safe was not secure - wasn't bolted to anything meaning I could lift it up!! The real disappointment was the breakfast - the selection was actually very good with egg, bacon or sausage, hash browns, toast, bagels, fresh waffles etc; however, the hot food was cold even when we came down for breakfast at 7:45 on the second day (breakfast started at 7:30). On the positive side, location was excellent for the beach and use of cool little rooftop swimming pool at sister hotel behind it.
