"great value for money"
This Motel offers very good standard if you consider the price. It is cheaper than a hostel and offers big rooms with bath rooms incl. breakfast at a great location between downtown and the beaches. You can get around with public transport, busses to several directions stop around the corner which is a great benefit for internationals without car. The stuff is very helpful and friendly. The fact that the building needs a make over didn't disturb us at all. What we did not like is that something was somehow always missing for breakfast. Or there was no coffee or no muffins or no juice or no cubs or spoons or butter or jam or milk. You have to improve on that friends because this is annoying. Nobody expects more than a simple basic breakfast for the great rate but it should be complete at least. What we also feel is that even though the motel is old, you could take much better care of the pool area. The pool is clean but the chairs and tables are not and there are no pillows and this is a very big pity because it could be fun to sit outside for dinner especially because a great tropical take away is in the supermarket around the corner and the foot is amazing. What we also liked is the shop that sells hundreds of different special bears from all over the country across the street. We stayed 10 days and recommend the place if you travel on a budget without car. Last but not least, a very cosy fish restaurant is in front of the door. You sit at a cannel. Romantic.

"Friendly staff, everything else horrible"
This is one of the dirtiest, loudest, scariest, most disgusting places I've ever slept in, and I've slept in some pretty awful places. Smelly, uneven bed? Check. Loud LOUD music directly outside my door (like night club level loud)? Check. Traffic? Check. Paper thin walls? Yes. Low quality materials throughout. I saw some pillows at a store today selling for $1 each, and they were probably better than the ones in this hotel. The mattress was the worst I've ever slept on. To compensate somewhat, the front desk staff were pretty friendly, but my goodness, what a mess. (And to counteract that one positive, the cleaning lady banged loudly and repeatedly on my door while I was in the bathroom and wouldn't go away in spite of me asking many, many times.)

"Good Value for Money"
Motel Blu is excellent value for money. Room is very basic but adequate. Pool is kept clean. Breakfast coffee is good and the breakfast offering is adequate - like muffins. If it was an expensive hotel I might complain, but for the daily rate it was excellent. The best part is that it is on Biccayne Blvd with several bus routes, so getting around without a car was easy. I do not drive. All the staff are polite and helpful.

"WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!"
This was the worst service i've ever had at any establishment. The guy at the front counter was not helpful at all, i was askinh him questions and he just kept saying i cant help you. If he cant help the customers why put him on duty without a manager, apparently he cant do the job. Staff has no communication skills with one another at all, i called earlier in the day to let someone know i was gonna be late checking in, whomever i spoke with did not relay the message and my room was given away, just to be told there were no more vacancies. When i ask about a refund he was quick to shut me down and tell me he couldnt help me and it was non-refundable. I will NEVER EVER BOOK HERE AGAIN OR SUGGEST ANYONE ELSE TO!!!

The website said there was a restaurant, but there was no restaurant. The website said that the rooms were clean, and they were filthy. The toilet didnt work. One room I tried the AC didnt work....in Miami in the summer. I was told my room would have a fridge and a microwave, but my room did not. The staff tried to help but they seemed very aloof and that because I had not spent a lot for the room I should not be complaining. The pool was filthy. Overall, it was a horrible experience and I will never stay there again.

"For a one night stay, it's not bad."
It really depends if you're priority is price or comfort. For the price, this place is good. You should only stay here if it's for 1 night and you're a male or you have a male (protective) companion. Read the rest to see why. Customer service here reflects your attitude. If you're upbeat, so are they. I actually stayed 2 weeks here. The internet isn't stable. From 11-3pm, it would cut out. If the internet is down, ask the front desk to reset the modem. Housekeeping uses excessive bleach so it smells strong. The towel had a stain from the fabric freshener they use. If you have a DND sign on your door, housekeeping will bypass you and you're room will not be cleaned and you won't get a change in towels. Make sure you catch them and ask for a towel before they clock out at 4pm. The lobby does not have additiona amenities. The blanket was super thin, worn out and just felt abrasive During my stay, nothing happened to me so I guess it's safe but I did not feel safe. Being a male and alone, I didn't mind but females without some type of male (or protective figure) should not stay here. I'm very chivalrous and respect women so please do not take this as a form of sexism. I would never bring my girlfriend to a place that I wasn't comfortable leaving her alone. There were guys that looked like thugs staying there and people that didn't even stay there just roaming the parking lot.

"Barely anything in the rooms!"
When I picked this hotel on a deal at Expedia I knew it was a cheap hotel for the price I was paying but this was just the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! They tried to willfully strip the room of any and every amenity they could possibly get away with. Not even a glass to drink water from, no hangers, one towel for a room with two beds and one bar of soap. Come on, I knew you were cheap but just one towel and bar of soap for two people!! The people at the reception were rude with a this-is-what-you-signed-up-for attitude and there were ALWAYS at least 2 other customers complaining about their rooms. Broken toilet seat, no remote for the TV, constant banging noise somewhere on the floor and no phone to even call the reception if you needed something! This hotel should not even be on Expedia. The only saving grace was the room was clean, nothing too dirty to complain about. But the hotel and rooms need a major overhaul and better amenities if they need a better rating.

"You get what you pay for"
Let's say that the hotel has a parking lot and a pool with transparent water. The reception looks like from a cheap movie, fading paint, cracks in the walls, vending machines in the hallway and a microwave. The room had a terrible smell, the carpeted floor was maybe from the 80s or 90s, the window A/C rattling, no power outlet in the room and the light in the bathroom didn't work. If you're into adventure travel, great, go for it. I couldn't stay there with my wife, except, maybe when asking for a divorce. As I'm not into the divorce thing, I would look for something cleaner next time.

"Older hotel that is close to things"
When I checked in I was given a single bed for 4 people--front desk told me that was all they had and that expedia booked it that way. Then they "cancelled" someone elses room to give me a room, even though I told them that they could give me a small discount and I would take a room that had construction workers every morning at 8:00, but they said they would not do that. So I got a room that has no phone, only 2 towels for 4 people, 1 pillow a piece and a broken bathroom door. The booking said hair dryer with notice--no hair dryer at all. 1 small bar of soap. Only 2 working outlets and 1 working light. We had to unplug stuff to plug in computers--across the room because nothing around us worked. Not enough parking. I was suppose to have a breakfast buffet--that was coffee and gross tasting muffins...what buffet???

"Nightmare stay with cockroaches everywhere"
My last stay at the Motel Blu in Miami was by far the worst experience ever. In fact, it was a nightmare stay. The first room I entered smelled like someone smoked marijuana there just before I entered. I asked for another room and I was given one. I took my bag inside and left for dinner. When I returned around 11pm, the room was literally moving. There were cockroaches everywhere –small and huge ones, with signs of infestation everywhere. They were running on the nightstand, on TV, on the walls, in the bathroom, on bathroom walls, in the shower, inside the toilet bowl, in the sink. It was late at night and I didn’t have anywhere else to move, so I had to sleep in the room, in my clothing with all that movement around me. At some point in the middle of the night there were roaches on the sheets. I ran out of the room early in the morning without taking a shower. Unfortunately, the minimum grade I can give is 1. This hotel deserves receive “-5.” Expedia should remove this hotel from their list. The nasty condition of the room has nothing to do with 2 stars that this hotel is allegedly given. I’ve stayed in 2-star hotels before and the rooms were at least clean. I contacted Expedia upon my return explaining the condition of the room, requesting the refund and removal of the hotel from the list of offered venues. Expedia did nothing apart from sending an apologetic email. The motel is still listed as of early May. I highly, highly do not recommend staying here.

"Wow, what an experience..."
There was only one other experience that comes close to Motel Blu in my life, both I will remember for a long time. Screaming, banging, arguments, I am pretty tough, but unless you want to be a part of the horror show I'd stay away. If I ever had to stay in Miami again and this was the only option, I'd skip the trip. Shower handle on the window sill, door with a gap, traffic noise. I'd say parking was the best part, staff OK, sheets fairly clean. Not sure what the AC was for since the gaps in the windows and doors would render it useless. Calling this accommodation with 2 stars is a true stretch of imagination. At $60 a night I paid I stayed in Miami in places that have better garages than my room. Anyways, if you want to find out for yourself, go for it, you will remember the experience for a long time.

"wanted to CRY.....DISSAPPOINTING"
The room was so small that it could not hold the customary table and 2 chairs that are a standard part of most motel rooms, so there was no where to eat in the room. The condition of the room was shocking. Firstly, the overhead light was the lowest wattage. The 3 lamps did NOT work, so the room was dark. The room smelled old and musty, like a really bad thrift shop. The comforter looked like it was 50 years old, used, washed out. I read the review about bed-bugs AFTER booking the hotel, and when I called to cancel, the clerk assured me that the motel had new owners who had the property professionally fumigated - I took one look at the mattress and bedding and left. There was NO WAY that I was going to lie on the bed, even the carpet underfoot was at least 30 years old. There was an obvious film of "use" on everything in the room, as if no one had cleaned anything in at least 20 years. We stayed at another motel, even though we paid to stay here.
