Run, don't walk, away from this hotel Posted Jan 30, 2013
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.
