"Watch for hidden fees"
Decent hotel but watch for extra fees they do not tell you about 12 a day for resort fee 13 a day for parking They also charge a tax on the resort fee and parking feeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Gorgeous location! Rooms were clean. Staff did not answer phones and building needs maintenance, but was good for our needs and price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extremely far from south beach. Little comfort"
Wifi sucks. NO CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST. Room smelled of bleach with dirty sheets. Very dated hotel. Find somewhere else to stay unless you're stuck in the 70s. $3.75 can of sodaGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap price and location only positives"
The only positives of my stay were the price and the location. They even charged to park at the hotel. The building needs a huge renovation. It looks like it is stuck in the 70's. No wifi, no indoor pool, and no fans in the bathroom. The T.V. even would cut in and out. If your on a budget it's ok but I wouldn't recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"At least was Miami"
This is an very old building with problems on the water, elevator, swimpool, too far from South Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach and everything else"
Loved the hotel. Could use some upgrade though. And cleaning staff not too niceGenuine Expedia guest review
ROOMS WERE TOO SMALL FOR THE PRICE. NO CARPET, BEDS SMALL, TOILETS NEED UPGRADE AND SHOWER. EXPECTED BETTER FOR $183.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"o.k. hotel right on the beach"

"Not bad for price"
Stayed here for 54 days. Everything was good and have no complains.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Wonderful stay. Really friendly staff, particularly at the bar and restaurant, close to the beach, can't speak highly enough. The room was a bit old fashioned but was still okay.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is horrible!! The staff members are very rude and dont care about there customers. We just recently stayed there over the 22nd of February for the weekend. First, they charge you $25 a day to just have your car parked in there parking lot and if you cant find a parking you have to park across the street from them but at your own risk, the […] buttons in the elevator dont work half the time, you dont get free breakfast. We had an incident happen and the hotel manager didnt even care! They were even rude about it, trying to blame us for it. The people that work at the gift shop are also rude as well, they screamed at my nephew for no reason. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach, very quiet."
Employees need more training, in customer service, helpfulness, friendliness. Rooms were very clean, but old. Hotel is very quiet, but does have hookers around sometimes, but mostly family friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice view of the ocean"
the hotel staff was nice and very helpful, and the room was very spacious.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Need more clean and service"
I was a week. Never change the savannah bed. Bathroom clogged the bathtub never fix sink brokerGenuine Expedia guest review
This Hotel Was awful. It does NOT look like these pictures it looks like trash. I will NEVER stay here again. NOT even if the remodeled and made it look nicer. The staff is rude and myself and who I was staying with asked for things (like towels rags microwave) and never received anything until the NIGHT before we left. I would rate this hotel LESS […] than a zero. And I will never stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

La persona que da informacion turistica nos dio malas recomendaciones. We received bad recommendation from the turist staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
The all tile floors in the room was a bit weird to get used to, but it was easier when I saw they cleaned them every day. Nothing around the hotel besides the beach, we had to take a 20-40 min bus ride to get anywhere else. For what we paid it wasn't terrible, but I don't think I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very poor costomer services didden fees like parking and addition on breakfast coast souring keep in poor condition, very desapointed! !!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid if possible"
One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. 1) Room not clean enough. There are some stains in the bathtub 2) Bad services. They charge $1 per piece of luggage stored. IN ADDITION, I WAS CALLING ROOM SERVICES FOR A FORK, AND THEY END UP ASKING ME GO TO LOBBY AND I HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER $1 FOR A PLASTIC DISPOSABLE FORK. RIDICULOUS. 3) Inconvenient location. […] It takes more than 1 hour bus to downtown Miami, and 30 minutes bus to Miami Beach...Really, avoid staying here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There is only internet access in lobby. Not rooms. Carpets in hallways need to be changed. But really nice amenities and nice beach locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good night to sleep"
the stay was good supplied me with more blankets and pillows for that cold night only thing i did not like was i got a room with 2 beds when they saw 2 couples were staying in a 2 bed room they wanted to charge me extra $40.00 or $20.00 per person when more than 2Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband is an electrician and the wiring in the bathroom was not in compliance with code. The hotel had the loser aura of an inn that might have been OK in the 70s, but was definitely on it's last legs. DO NOT stay here unless you have a self-loathing complex.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Dezerland Beach Hotel is an older hotel with older fixtures. The internet worked well; parking was easily available even at $13 a night. Only one of several restaurants was available for dinner -- the bar/beach dining area. Food was acceptable. This is an average hotel, in an average area of Miami Beach. Walls are hin so I enjoyed the conversations […] of the group next door until 3 a.m. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Front desk staff member was very rude they didn't greet me when I walked in, the gentleman that checked me in didn't give me a parking pass after I paid for it, he gave me the wrong directions to my room, he didn't give me the coupons for the continental breakfast that was absolutely cold and disgusting; however the cleaning ladies were very nice and […] friendly!

I was only there for 7 hours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This Place was junk. Very outdated. Good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Waterfront View"
If you like a nostalgic atmosphere, this is a good place for photos. The vintage automobiles designed as the restaurant setting was very nice. The hotel is an old hotel, so if you're looking for contemporary settings, this is not the place. The bath room is small, but clean. Overall, depending upon what you're looking for, this is a nice place to lay […] your head after your return from the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"40% taxes & recoveries but ok apart from that"
Booked this late at night : checked the normal hidden costs : resort fee $11 parking $12 so went ahead and booked partial sea view room for $89. Only realized after submitting payment details that "taxes and recoveries" equalling 40% had been levied. This is for a 2 star hotel in North beach area! Checked other hotels and none charged this high rate […] . Conclude then that the room rate has been lowered to lure people like me in. Apart from what I consider to be misleading rates, the room was what we expected : basic but clean . There were a couple of maintenance issues in one of the rooms we booked ( hair dryer & safe not working) but as we were there got one night only , we didn't worry about these. Pool nice and right on beach. 10 min drive to South Beach. Funky gangster theme in restaurant . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad service and all is at additional cost"
We had a bad experience with this hotel. We reserve a room with internet but they if fact they annonce internet and they do not have it except in the lobby.But in the lobby no place to stay and internet slow and not always working. Then we had breakfast included in our price and reservation but breakfast was just coffee cup if you want cakes and eggs […] you have to pay $18 more... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Should be cheaper considering what it offers"
I was hoping to find a cheap hotel to spend one night in Miami. I arrived on an early flight (6 AM) and the staff were VERY inflexible when it came to checking me in earlier. So I had to spend from 6AM until 3PM at the beach (what may seems good when you're rested, but not when you've been traveling for 12 hours). When I finally got to the room, my […] shower couldn't keep a stable temperature (it would either burn me or freeze me, even though I wasn't even close to touching the faucet.) The paint job is a mess. The TV is from the 90's and the 50's-inspired statues at the lobby are going to give your children nightmares. From the overall experience, maybe I should have stayed on a Motel 6 and would have gotten more from my money. Ps.: it is a US$ 30,00 cab ride from the hotel to South Beach.

"Very expensive for the location and condition"
Hotel staff is RUDE, they would not let me check in even 5 minutes before 3:00 pm, and were not friendly at all. Despite being at the beach it's is a bad neighborhood, hotel is very old, I paid extra to update my room and my bathroom was very small , floor was wet, this hotel is not worth more than $70 per night. To pay this much I would rather stay […] in South Beach . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"bad staying in this hotel"
Very bad staying in this hotel. I stayed one night in this hotel for a family vacation. The room had very bad sound proof. I lived in a bayview room. There was a locked door to seperate two rooms, but it did not block the any sounds and smells. My neighbour room play music and smoke, it was very noise. In the early monring, traffic noise also come to […] your room. I can not fall into sleep all night at all. Never go this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Service stinks and place is a dump.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I recommend this hotel. You will enjoy the stay. All good and satisfied. They need to improve the free continental breakfast though !!!! Was not as great. However, the American breakfast, that you pay for, is very good at this hotel. Overall, me and my friends were very pleased with the service and accomodations !!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very old building needs updatingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The manager was rude, the room i had booked was not available so they down graded and i did not accept so i argued with them until they gave me the room i had booked on line for a added fee. I literately had to get upset and cry and i have terminal cancer. I just wanted to spend a quality time weekend with my grandchildren. and this was a nightmare. […] the rugs were dirty. Oh ! and they said i only booked one day but i had paid for two i had to show my itinerary. Or they would have asked me to leave they said it was hotel.com mistake. I felt robbed, insulted and disgusted with Howard Johnson hotels and i will never stay at one ever again. As i was leaving and turning in the keys I overheard a lady arguing over the same thing i went through and they gave her the room i had just left but did not charge the added fee. I went up to the female manager there and explained that the same thing happened to me why was i charged an added fee?she looked at the person that charged me and reimbursed the fee. Thank God there was someone there that new what she was doing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was nice Food was awful service RUDE"
The hotel location was great, pool and beach convenient. However hotel staff told me when I checked in that I must have booked the wrong date which was untrue the rep for this site did so I found that to be offensive and thought he had a smart mouth to tell me that. bathroom has some pink coloring by door on floor, and when we came we were told at check […] in time at 3pm our room would be ready in 10 minutes but really it was in 35 minutes and the cleaning lady supervisor OMG absolutely unprofessional she was yelling at her staff I felt so bad for the cleaning crew. It made me someone upset that we spent almost 1,000 to stay at a place that was not worth anything over 500. NEVER AGAIN. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the service was good but at first I was in a room where the shower burned me. The water would oscillate from boiling hot to freezing in an instant. I tried showering at different times with the same result. But when I alerted the management, they moved me to another room right away and the problem disappeared. Breakfast was ol and the staff […] there is very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
