"Nice Hotel close to golf."
The rooms were clean and tidy the hotel staff provided courteous and receptive information and assistance and the property was beautiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had such a lovely stay at Shulas! Our room was very clean and modern and I loved the Aveda products! The clerks and maid were very friendly-I highly recommend this hotel and will rebook here next time we're in Miami.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not What You Expect"
When booking this hotel, our expectation from the pictures and description was that this hotel was at the Don Shula resort and the reality is it is not. It is almost a mile away from the golf course and also the country club facilities. It's an older hotel with not much of a view or the amenities that you think you will get. Also, when we booked it, […] we were supposed to get a $25 dining certificate which made the price more reasonable. However, when we checked in, we got a certificate that was only good if you spent $100 or more, which again is very misleading (luckily Expedia fixed that for us). The hotel is OK otherwise and the room was clean and comfortable. Walking distance to Miami Lakes shopping and restaurants, which was nice. Because we were expecting something different from what we got, this hotel gets a lower rating. They really should not be showing the golf course pictures and other amenities that are actually not a part of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We live in the area, but just wanted to have a lazy, relaxing weekend of nothingness. Checking in was easy, though we had to wait a while for them to prepare our room. The hotel is near lots to do and it was quiet. Exactly what we wanted.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel needs updating in their rooms!"
Nice staff but room was old and the furniture in terrible shape. Good location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"THEY OVERBOOK AND YOU WILL NOT GET ROOM"
I had a confirmed booking though expedia. I had called and told them that I will be checking in late. When I reached the hotel, there were 2 guests in from of me trying to get a room and the hotel said they did not have any rooms as they were sold out. They took my info. After that I waited 1 and half hour, till they could service me.After 2 hours at […] 2 am night I , my wife and 10 months old baby were told to go to a hotel 20 miles as they did not have any rooms. We drove that hotel and on checking in their, I was told that I have to leave at 12pm ( standard check out ), as they were full the next day. I told them I had booked for 2 nights in Shula and i should be staying for 2 night. The front desk at the other hotel ( which was a definitely a lower star), told me that shula had only paid for my 1 night stay. I called up Shula hotel and they said they will get back regarding the same. At 3:30 at night, they informed me that I could stay there for only 1 night and to call up Shula hotel in the morning. In the morning, I called them up, but the front desk had no idea about what happened last night. I explained the situation and she said they will call back ASAP. After half hour, I had still not heard back , so I called back as needed to know where I would be staying.She said they would call me back. Eventualy, they did call me back saying they would have room ready for me at 12:30pm. So, I had to repack everything and drive 20 minutes to get to Shula and check in.

"Corrected an issue beyond expectations"
We had poor television and internet service in our room and since they couldn't fix it, they moved us to one of their suites! While it was gorgeous, going to the upper level, where the bed was, did present some issues. You had to go up a spiral staircase every time and at my age, 60 and my husband, 65, it was just not that convenient, but certainly […] not worth complaining about. The phone was only available upstairs too. The shopping area looked awesome, but there were very few good shops there. Lovely neighborhood and hotel was clean.

"One bad egg !"
At the reception desk one very rude lady at time of check in , impossible to reason with her but my overall experience of the hotel is excellent and memorable , one bad apple in a bunch can' t spoil my stay and honestly, I would choose this hotel again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We really enjoy our stay. Love the bedroom, nice pool. Just a bit small. Friendly stuff. We will go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very convenient to our daughter and her family"
Room was nice - but lighting was not very bright. (We're readers and there was no comfortable reading chair either). Mattress springs felt sprung on one side of the bed nearest the door. Balcony screen in our room (2246) was off the track and very balky to operate. (Maintenance said they'd fix it after we left.) Food at Steakhouse 2 was moderately good […] but not great. Breakfast buffet was pretty skimpy for $15/serving. Service in restaurant was slower than we're used to. Miguel (bellman) was great - excellent service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent cost effective"
The hotel room is a bit out of date. But considering $80 per day, I got a big, clear and comfort room and bed, thus it's most cost effective. The location is outstanding with easy access to downtown of Miami Lake by walking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"get the signature floor"
on the minus side, the hotel is a mile away from the golf course, if you really want an hotel on the course, go to the Indigo hotel (same mgt). The Shula is in a cute district with a pedestrian street, shops, restaurants...The hotel itself is a change from the standardization of the usual chains, we found it quite nice with a kind of colonial charm. […] What we really liked was the signature floor with access to a lounge with a very good and complete breakfast! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dolphin Game Weekend"
This was our first time here, stayed 3 nights and we had a wonderful stay. The staff was very friendly & polite. The hotel was spotless. Our room was spotless. The bed was comfy. There's shopping and various restaurants all around the hotel, walking distance. It was a short drive to Sun Life Stadium. Took about 15 minutes. (we got there around 10:30am […] for a 1:00pm game). We didn't play golf but I heard the course was excellent! Very challenging on the back nine. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel in a nice neighborhood"
We chose Shula's Hotel because my fiance is a huge Dolphins fan and we were heading to the game on Sunday. What a great choice! The neighborhood is safe and walkable (shops and restaurants right outside the hotel in Miami Lakes). It's about 15 minutes to Sun Life Stadium (very easy drive). The rooms are very modern and clean. Ours had a king bed and […] hardwood floors - very So. Florida! The bathroom was also very nice, although there is a strange, hard-to-maneuver sliding door to get in and out of the bathroom. Also, and this is a minor quibble, we received 2 bars of soap, but after putting one in the shower, that left one remaining...but there were two sinks (one in the bathroom and one outside).That just meant you had to open the sliding door to use the sink outside the bathroom, in our case. Asking for extra soap is an easy fix, though. Staff was very nice, although we didn't have to interact much. Shulas 2 is a phenomenal restaurant with great burgers and excellent service (Ronan was our server - he was the best!). Other servers and a manager even stopped by to see how our meal was going. We expected to feel rushed on a Saturday night, but didn't at all. The bakery is a good stop for breakfast. They serve Starbucks coffee, and the prices are a bit high, but the pastries are excellent and the service was also friendly. We've also been to the Shula's Steak House in Walt Disney World, and I will say this - expect great service when you see the name Don Shula. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beware of Night time staff!"
The lounge area, restaurant, outdoor space, and amenities are nice. I was disappointed with the rooms. The bathrooms need major updating. They don't show the bathroom in the pictures on the website and now I see why. The bathroom is not appealing at all. Housekeeping cleaned the rooms, took the dirty towels, but didn't give us any new ones. When we […] requested towels and wash clothes (you must be specific or they wont bring you both) they argued with us about the quantity they would bring. The night staff are extremely rude and obviously don't want to do any type of real "work" as simple as getting towels out of the closet and bringing them to us. I would prefer to be in another hotel that offers better customer service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel 5, Conference Internet -2"
Although the hotel experience was fine, I would strongly recommend that you choose somewhere else if you need to book a conference that requires internet service. I was teaching a class that requires hands-on learning and an internet connection. The first two days were horrid, as we were apparently competing for bandwidth with another class in the next […] conference room. I had better luck connecting several of my students to the internet via the hotspot on my iPhone. In my opinion, Shula's booked these classes without the appropriate infrastructure in place to handle them, resulting in a very poor experience for my students. I would absolutely not book another class here. On the positive side, there are plenty of restaurants around, and the A/C in the room has a fan-on mode for sleeping.

"Just a very nice experience - twice!"
The hotel is very clean, very well kept after and in a very nice community. There are plenty of nice shops and restaurants right outside your doorstep,The grounds are well maintained. The hotel is older but really kept very clean. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are decent size, and overall a great value. I wish breakfast was included with discount […] rates but there are plenty of places to go eat. I have stayed twice there with the family this year and I will stay again the next time we are in Miami - great value. Family of 4 - two doubles. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"My Football Weekend in Miami"
Being a Miami Dolphin fan from my early childhood this was like a dream to me. Don Shula brought a winning team to Baltimore every year they came here and I could not wait to see them play. Bob Griese and Larry Csonka were my childhood heros. Then I was crushed when they Colts moved to Indianapolis and the Dolphins no longer would come here ever again. […] Well Baltimore stole the Browns from Cleveland and now Miami would not even be on TV as Baltimore promotes the Ravens like they are the only team in the NFL. So I was crushed yet again. In 1994 I went to Shulas hotel and watched the Dolphins on opening day beat the Patriots 39-35. So its not every year I can go to Miami to watch a game. My son being of age now and also a Dolphin fan asked me can we go to Miami and see a game. I remembered how great my experience was back in 94 and looked at the schedule to see what game we could go to. The Atlanta game just seemed to be the game that would be most exciting. Afterall its opening day. When I told him I booked us at Shulas and all the Miami memories that are there he was just as excited as I was. Shulas hotel is in a great location that you can walk around and enjoy the sights and reminice in the history of this great football franchise. Shula made the Dolphins into a powerhouse and his hotel is built with that same tradition. Miami beat Atlanta in the final minute of a game I will never forget. So I am 2-0 seeing the Dolphins play at home and staying at Shulas. Wow! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"great relaxing area"
Very nice area. very welcoming staff who were very professional until I met a valet attendant who felt that he need to treat me like I was one of his kids. Very offensive. That experience took away some of the delight that I initially had about the place.

"Nice hotel, but very bad restaurant service"
The hotel was very nice for the price paid and the front desk service was excellent. Unfortunately, I would not recommend the restaurant. I took my family to Shula's 2 and the service was horrible. The waitress seemed to be annoyed and not in a good mood. The food was not worth the price, and you only seem to get good service if you are young college […] girls or are sitting at the bar.

"Conveniently located hotel"
The hotel in general was fine, and the front desk staff was fine, too. However, my room was not the best. I got in relatively late and had a work appointment early the next morning. I found that the air conditioning unit was partially falling out of the wall (I could see the wires) and the air would not go below 77 degrees. I would have called the front […] desk to fix it or change rooms, but the hotel phone did not work. So, I slept in a very hot, stuffy room. At one point in the night I heard what I thought was something knocking on my door. I got up and looked through the peep hole, only to find that tissue paper had been shoved into the hole so I could not see out... creepy. I got my car keys and pulled it out, and went to bed somewhat alarmed. The next morning I told the person at the front desk about all of the issues with the room. He was very apologetic which I appreciated, but to make up for it he offered me a drink ticket to the hotel restaurant. I told him I was leaving for the airport and so would not be able to use it, and he just apologized. Nothing else was offered. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed here at the end of our vacation, two nights. The room was great, clean and modern. Everything flowed together nicely, however, the shower head was horrible, such a beautiful room but the shower head seemed to be from the 90's. the water came out sol strong that it hurt. I also didn't like that the room had no microwave or fridge, nowadays […] almost all economy hotels/motels have this available, I would have liked if Shulas had it too.

"OK but not what was expected"
We had a High School Reunion for those of us who went to school in Germany. The hotel is definitely not anymore than 3 stars. The shower had no water pressure, the curtain did not reach the ground and the floor would flood. The first night there was a large curly black hair on my sheet right near my pillow. The hotel was supposed to help our group with […] transportation for a golf outing and the Catering Manager basically called our coordinator a liar and would not provide the promised transportation.
