“Will not return.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

The following are reasons I would not stay at this hotel again:
1. The staff at the front desk were not inviting or helpful and, in fact, made my friend cry because staff on their end entered the wrong dates for our stay.
2. The hallways are tiled and the walls are paper thin. We heard every noise and TV program our neighbors were watching.
3. The food was sub-par at best. Especially the breakfast, I've never had worse pancakes in my life.
4. The rooms lacked serious decor and even the pictures over the bed had red dots on them like there were purchased at a yard sale.

One positive is that we had an ocean view room that was spectacular. If you have to stay at this hotel, spring for the ocean view and your stay might be tolerable.

Stayed here for 3 nights - before exploring south Florida. The hotel is a little tired and in need of some major renovations however, we had a very pleasant stay. The restraurant served good all American breakfasts and were very reasonably priced. Pool area had plenty of loungers even though you had to pay for them. Hotel is right on the beach and not too far from the shopping centres. Overall a good one/two night hotel but would not want to stay for a week.

Room Tip: Don't expect too much as hogtel is looking tired.

honestly for what you pay at this hotel i would look for something else, i paid 71$ a night for a room with no a/c, didn't get sheets changes in 6 days, view was horrible it was of hotel roof windows did not open, no microwave in room,door was way too small for door frame you could see in hallway around the edges of door, bed was so bad(overused) i had to get back pain pills after 4 days, had to use employers break room microwave, there is no fitness room they don't even offer continental breakfast even at $71 a night that's a separate charge, worst thing to watch for is there RESORT FEE they will tell you when you are checking in for things like shuttle to beach ,,beach is in back hotel, shuttle to mall, bus stop is right out side it is 10$ a day which is NOT optional i didn't use any services for the resort fee, do not talk with Micheal front desk manager he is very rude, don't stay here find some where better and money worthy

Room Tip: i was in 304 my view was the roof of hotel

Only paid £414 via American Airlines site for a 8night stay in a double,superior room. The difference between the standard and superior is that superior rooms overlook the pool and southern aspect of the ocean, whereas the standard overlooks the northern aspect of the ocean and the valet carpark. Valet parking is charged at $10 per day, and self park across Collins Ave at $8 per day.(beware valet parking though, as I reckon they bumped my Dollar rental car door, and chipped paint and put a small dent, door was OK the previous night, but damaged next AM) Decent looking foyer, with an old classic Thunderbird car on display. Helpful concierge, Just a 15 mile drive down to the South Beach/Ocean Drive area. 2 miles away from the Aventura Mall. both these places are apparently served by a courtesy bus though we didnt use it. All-in-all a well located four floor hotel which is right on the Sunny Isles beach with a publix supermarket and restaurants straight across Collins Ave.

Room Tip: Book a superior, high floor room

This hotel is one of the few hotels left that is not a high rise. If you get a superior room you have a view of the beach from your balcony that is hard to beat. This is not a 5-star resort, but again the views are amazing.
