It would have been nice to know the hotel was under construction before I booked. The hotel does not currently have an exercise room. You had to go to the neighboring hotel. This hotel had 5 pieces of equipment 3 of which were broke. Also the WI-FI did not work in the workout room.

Stayed here in early December 2013. This hotel is a mess with construction. I understand renovation needs, but there is little effort to keep the premises in an acceptable condition. Regardless of needed renovation, I still expect to get value and a comfortable atmosphere. I have stayed here before, but will stay away until I am sure the renovations are complete.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Business1111 It's OK.
Staff was very friendly and I got one of the recently renovated rooms , so that was fine. The hotel is under renovation. What surprised me was the charge for the breakfast. I have not paid for the typically free Holiday Inn cereal breakfast in a long time. $15 in this case.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kel1486 Business and Leisure stay
I stayed here firstly for location, as it was very close to my office.
I booked online a specific room, and after arriving from the UK I was told there are rooms available due to renovations of that complete room type
Also there are not many restaurants surrounding the hotel.
However shopping malls approx 15mins away - about $15 in a taxi - so worthwhile.
Small restaurant in hotel - they allow you to take away back to your room. But its not open lunchtime - only for evening meals.
Overall a pleasant stay

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim23 Old Property Under Construction
Property is in need of a major face-lift. Under construction now. Not a good experience due to being put in a smoking room the first night. Old room worn everything. Faucet leaked, shower old and dirty. I will look at this property again after the construction because it is in a good location. Overall experience was not good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rammy Great place to relax. Comfortable room.
The only area which needs improvement is the breakfast.
Options are very very very basic! Needs improvement.
Also, shuttle service to International mall as well as Dolphin at a nominal fee should be considered.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steffitap Good Location and good decor
I dont usually write reviews but found this hotel very nice. Good decor throughout. We had a problem with the safe but it was fixed the next day.
The location is great as it is close to all the shopping malls, restaurants and airport.
A bit far from Miami Beach and South beach.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyMiami So far worst Holiday Inn I have stayed at..
I stay at Holiday Inn & Express almost on a weekly basis. This is by far the worst one I have probably stayed in. As soon as I walked in there was a horrible aroma smell. I asked the front clerk what it was and she agreed that it did smell and was wondering the same thing. I stayed 4 nights and it smelled the same the entire time!! There were a few small bugs I found in the bathroom, I did not complain as I knew this was Miami and could happen. The flyers under the door are ridiculous. The elevators take forever and last of all, the rooms are old looking and not up to date by any means. The hotel info on the website says its only about 10 miles from Miami Beach, try 25 miles and you almost have to go through a Toll Road every time unless you find your way around it. Normally I do not write reviews but I had to on this one. Good luck!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Alfredo76 Really bad breakfast and old rooms
Let me tell you, the hotel is really convenient, good location and ease of access. But is getting old and, the room gets filled with delivery food ads under the door and the breakfast is really bad, they even charge you for an orange juice?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LC1234 Great service at a hotel in need of a major overhaul
The front desk staff and restaurant staff are amazing.
That ends the positive portion of my review.
The hotel is stuck in the 80s with terrible decor, uncomfortable beds, slow elevators, and slow Internet service. Hotel ownership and management will never do anything about this, so I would recommend looking around for another hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CB33 Will not recommend or come again.
The hotel lacked cleanliness. I had a roach that greeted me in the bathroom. There were fruit flies buzzing around the fruit on the breakfast buffet. Will not be staying again.

They didn't give me king size bed.I reserved standard room and front desk start arguing although hotel wasn't full .
I ask for complementary water and she wants to charge me.
There wasn't shampoo in the bathroom and room was expensive and first night they charge higher ?! and I ask for reason since online was the different price , again front desk with bad explanation (I forgot the name but she was at the time when I check in 01/07/2013 around 5 pm) .This girl at the front desk was unprofessional and I wouldn't stay in this hotel in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CorrineS This is one of my favourite hotels
The staff are very friendly and accommodating, it's a bit challenging for them when they are really busy.
It would be a good idea to get flight/arrival information at the time of the reservation so the scheduling of the staff could be better. This would improve the service and make it less stressful for them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HolidayTM Would be great if worked out the shuttle service problems
Before I went here, I was a bit skeptical, because of some of the reviews. However, it was much better than expected. The initial impression upon arrival was favorable, the front desk staff was friendly and welcoming. I was most impressed with Aida in the breakfast restaurant, the morning front desk woman, and the night manager man.
Aida was especially warm and friendly, offering a special Christmas season greeting for breakfast. The morning front desk woman was pleasant and accommodating, but I forget her name. However, I had too much unnecessary frustration and anxiety with the shuttle service at 1030 PM. While they advertise a shuttle until 11PM, when I called at 1030 at the airport for a pickup, they told me to call back after I was outside at the shuttle pickup. As such, I assumed there would be no problems with a shuttle. 5-10 minutes later I called back and spoke with the same woman, once I was at the shuttle area. I was shocked, hurt, and disappointed when she told me that the last shuttle driver just left the airport, wouldnt be coming back, and I would have to take a taxi. Hello?!?! I had just called 5 minutes before saying I was needing a shuttle, so why not communicate that to the driver to wait for me. Furthermore, it was still before 11PM, so to uncaringly say the shuttle driver was going home with a tough luck attitude was inappropriate. Later I called back to speak to the night manager who saved the day by sending me a pickup shuttle after 11 PM. They should have done that in the first place without putting me in so much stress. I was well within the published shuttle timeframe.
The room and property was great. This would have been a 5 star review if not for the shuttle frustration.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Alpe This should not be' an Holidai inn!!!
Everything here bilongs to a one star hotel.
Bed sheeets are at least 20 Years olid and show it
Front desk is useless. Shuttle from Airport keeps you waiting at least for 45 min.
Shuttle to Malls is,in theory available,in reality it is NEVER available.
Again alltogether this IS NOT an Holiday Inn!!!!
I have been a Priority Club member for many,many years and have the impression that everything is gong down here.
I even had difficulty having my pointer credited after a stay booked on ICHotel.com!!!! I still did not get these points credited.

This Holiday Inn has improved immensely over the past year or so!!!!
All the staff have excellent hospitality skills and are an absolute pleasure. Front desk team all the way through to the bar and restaurant staff - very friendly and super efficient. Always a pleasure coming back to this hotel due to this.
The quality of food has also seen a huge improvement, especially in the evenings. The lady chef and her team are great and prepare meals perfectly.
One small suggestion that I do have, has to do with the noise level of the housekeeping team. Whilst cleaning rooms, the ladies tend to scream down the corridors to each other in order to communicate. This may only happen after 8:00am, but they still need to realize that guests may still be sleeping after long international flights etc. I have noticed that the floor supervisors are very much part of this noise problem. Repeatedly, I've had to get up to ask them to be quieter.
Many thanks for your consideration.

I booked two non-smoking suites in this hotel in advance through the priority club website. When I arrived they told me that all their suites were full and they had to put me in regular rooms and adjust my billing when I checked out. They gave us one smoking room and one non-smoking room without telling us. After discovering the entire floor smelled like smoke and that I was in a smoking room I politely asked to be moved to a non-smoking room. All they had was the smoking room.
Since when is it OK to book rooms you don't have.
I am currently scheduled to spend four weeks over the next six months in this area and even though I am a long time Platinum Priority Club Member, I will be staying at the nicer competitor down the road.
