I usually stay at Hyatt/Marriott/Sheraton properties and this Holiday Inn just changed my mind. When I arrived I was greeted by Lynette at the front desk. She was smiling, accommodating and efficient. She's a great person to make a good first impression. On my reservation I had asked for a quiet room, if possible. When I went to the room it was DIRECTLY next to the elevator, but set back a little. I was initially disappointed because I thought there was going to be all kinds of noise from the elevator and the people going in and out. I was absolutely wrong. There was NO noise from the elevator at all. The only noise I heard was the slamming of doors by rude guests (how people don't know how to quietly close doors is a mystery to me). The room was SPOTLESS and i mean super clean! I am very particular about cleanliness in hotels and I was so impressed. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is the size of the bathroom. Let's just say if I stretched a little I could touch all four walls of the bathroom standing in one place. This may be that my room had a smaller bathroom than others because it was set back and had a different shape than the others. In the evening I ordered dinner from the restaurant and took it up to my room. It was fantastic. The service was excellent as well. The following morning I ordered room service that arrived promptly and was very good. I checked out after breakfast and during the checkout process I had a great talk with Lynette at the front desk and the Front Office Manager, Claudia. I have to say, both ladies were EXACTLY what upper management wants at their hotel. Super great stay, terrific service, clean rooms and a comfortable bed. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big All Reif After all these years.
Thirty-five years a Priority Club member and I still find our stays at Holiday Inns to be consistently pleasant and enjoyable. From the Cheerful and expert treatment at the front desk by Jenny and Moira to the service in the restaurant by Lourdes. Manager Claudia was concerned about our stay and offered to help in any way possible.
All in all, another nice stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TSharps Check in & Spring Break
We tried to check in early and was told that the room was ready but that the computer system was being replaced--we were told to come back in an hour--needless to say 3 hours later they made a copy of my credit card and let us check in. The room was comfortable, but someone walked into our room like it was thiers--we notified the front desk and they apologized. They also were doing maintenence in the room next door with lots of banging/noise. That was all day one. Day 2 was uneventful and relaxing--great visit to the U. On the 3rd day the Spring Breakers moved in next door. Starting at 2AM and every 30 minutes after that someone was banging on the door to get in until we checked out at.

My wife is on the USA Paralympic Swim team & was in Miami for competition. She was quoted a nightly price - was shown her nightly price - somehow, some way, they stuck an ADDITIONAL $40.00 per night on her bill.
Called & complained & got a run-around - wrote TWICE
We should have read the prior comments.to the GM -
Advice to ALL - BEWARE!!

Extremely well maintained rooms and common areas. The staff couldn't be more efficient, accommodating, and courteous. The courtyard and pool are exceptionally pretty. The restaurant, including outdoor dining, is delightful and good. I stay at this time every year for five nights and the experience is always exceptional. The location is convenient to so many venues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by woodynole comfortable bed, nice patio but thin room walls
overall was very nice and close to many restaurants/bars and U of Miami. Nice older tropical feel with nice pool. Comfortable bed but thin walls as we could hear much noise in next room partially due to many persons in the room. AC unit was fairly loud affecting 1st night sleep, was helpful 2nd night to cover room noise next door.
overall we expect to go back again. Front desk associate was very nice and helpful giving us a room upgrade with patio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carp38 Quality Staff, all around
This Holiday Inn is a standout among other hotels the chain. I stayed four nights was very impressed with the service provided by the staff. The staff is exceptionally pleasant and went out of their way to take care of the guests. Eric the bartender was excellent with the customers and so nice. The cleaning staff was wonderful. One standout amongst the team was a young man, William B. II, who answered every question you might have and made timely suggestions for places to eat, things to do an see, etc. He clearly went beyond what might be expected of staff at lesser establishments. If we needed something, he got it. Should I have asked for it, I don't doubt that he could have made it rain chocolate. Promote this exceptional employee ahead of his peers and put him in positions of greater responsibility. At a minimum give him a paid day off.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 19christo48 Pleasant staff who promise a lot and do not deliver (apart from one guy)
Arrived and despite having booked my room months in advance was told it had been given to someone else who was part of a larger group. We were given some bonus points and a reduction on the room but I would have liked an email earlier to prepare me. Staff were all very nice but when issues were raised there appeared to be no action. A real problem was that the in room entertainment system did not work. All the staff until our final evening promised to sort the problem but nothing was done other than sending the house the technician who had no idea what was going on . We were told that if the ppv system could not be made to work we would be moved but nothing came of that. I reckon I could have spent the whole of my holiday chasing up issues.
Also this is a noisy hotel. the corridors are noisy and thye residents who sit around outside the room experimenting with their singing etc are a pain

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave6541378 Up to Scale & Very Clean
Had a very good experience from checking in.The lady at front desk(Jenny) was very helpful locating every thing we needed for the stay and gave us very useful information as to where location were.
It was still a little pricee, but very clean & friendly.
The only thing we would say negative would be
the restaurant where it was empty and the host
had to find a clean table. (I was confused on this)
thus we did not eat there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KarlK they should not bill credit cards in advance
The facility was great, but overpriced, and I was surprised to find that my reservation was billed to my credit card the moment I made it, over a week before. Since I time credit card usage to just AFTER each billing cycle this also incurred a payment obligation one month sooner than I expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trinbago Great Service and comfortable bed
My stay at this hotel was a very convenient one. I had to do some wedding shopping and it was close to miracle mile, where it had a lot of bridal stores accessible. There also was some stores and restaurants in walking distance from the hotel. Dadeland mall was also in the vicinity. Staff very friendly, especially Angel, and the food is quite good. Rooms are spacious and bed very comfy. Only one thing, the bathroom was too small. Toilet too close to door and shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by J and MJ The Holiday Inn Coral Gables was a major part of the success of our stay in Miami
From our check-in until the morning we left, the Holiday Inn Coral Gables supported our visit to the Miami area with excellent facilities and service. We especially appreciated the youth and enthusiasm for their jobs by all staff. They were unfailingly interested in us as persons, and were attentive to our needs--even those a bit above and beyond, such as allowing us to use a patio area by the bar right up to closing time. We commend the management and staff of this facility very highly and thank them again for making our stay one of the best hotel stays we have had.

The staff was great. We were given a room which has a kitchenette. It was perfect for us and in a quiet area of the hotel and grounds. Thank you!

When buying a home, location is top priority. The same can be said for finding a hotel to meet your needs whether for business or pleasure. I found this hotel to be an excellent location, close to great restaurants and, although I didn't do any, shopping. I am in this area often for business and it is the first time that I stayed here....It won't be the last!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peacedad Good location in South Miami
Good location to visit Miami and the area around, especially Miami south. There is a Metrorail station nearby, only 5 minutes walk. We took the trail to Downtown and then bus or Metromover around. Very convenient.
The hotel is a little bit old, but clean. A typical Holiday Inn.
We stayed at the end of the hallway on the second floor, a long walk is required from the elevators.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Russ K-R Good location, Breakfast needs help
The hotel rooms are nice. The front desk was very professional. Breakfast waitress is barely able to take an order. We have stayed here twice in the last 3 months and we like to order breakfast off the menu instead of eating the bland breakfast buffet. Each of our stays the same waitress has mis-heard our our order and seem to be on her own schedule. Quite the opposite from the dinner crew which was good. Also be aware that gratuity is added to every check.

The front desk was great. Housekeeping staff was very friendly. The housekeeping staff was the best I've ever come across. When we walked by them, they all greeted us with big smiles. The food was very good. We ordered several dinners and breakfasts from room service. Plenty of hot water and beds were comfortable. Location was perfect for us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by speedbird127 Good value for money
I stayed in a typical Holiday Inn standard room with 2 double beds for 3 nights. It was clean and relatively modern. Front desk service was friendly and efficient. Free wifi, though the signal frequently cut out so not really appropriate for streaming but ok for occasional browsing. Sampled only breakfast, but choice was limited and of only average quality (though reasonably priced). Pool looked nice, with attractive vegation surrounding it.
