    The staff was friendly, the buffet was delicious, with the exception they were closed one day of our stay which was a Monday. The rooms were decent and clean, the lobby was beautiful made you feel you were staying at a 4 star hotel. Don't be detoured by the exterior front thou, Once you enter you will be relieved

    Although this was a single night stay ahead of a pre-paid cruise out of Miami, I would rather have slept on the beach than stay here. When we arrived early at 130pm, the staff told us the room reservation was not in their system. Had to speak to three different people to get them to acknowledge that we even had a reservation. Returned at 230pm to the front desk and waited a half hour to speak to a front desk person. Noticed that the hotel gave rooms out first to those who had direct reservations with the hotel, and then to those with third party reservations, even though we physically arrived ahead of the others. The room smelled like bleach, had tile floors throughout, mold and rust in the bathroom, and was too close to a regional commuter train line conveniently concealed by shrubbery and fencing. At night, there were too many people congregating in the parking lot. The train was very loud and actually shook the building when passing on the hour throughout the night. The lock on the front door was not very strong, so I felt it was not safe.

  • Avoid this place!

    Room was not ready for 1.5 hours after promised. Room smelled bad. We will contact health dept. to check for mold. Train goes by and shakes the bed. The train also sounds a very loud horn. Safe didn't work, so I wanted no cleaning. I had no door tag to place requesting no service. Ask front desk to leave the room alone. Staff still entered to clean. Staff is not friendly. Bartender rude and ignored us due to coupon for free drinks for slow room delivery. P.S. Bartender should be required to wear something more age appropriate than a halter which provided no support. While making you wait or ignoring you, staff constantly speaks in french even though all speak English which is rude as well. Continental breakfast is $6 for cold cereal and coffee. Stay away!

  • hotel was resonable for cost, nice people working there
