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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by college bound great staff, great food, comfortable room
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.

My stay at the University Holiday Inn was wonderful! Management and staff were very courteous and accommodating. The next time I visit Miami, I will stay at the University Holiday Inn, because of the treatment I received on December 14 & 15, 2013. Keep up the excellent service!!

I have stayed at this location several times. As a University of Miami student, the location is perfect for when I have friends or family coming down for a visit. The rooms are clean and very nice. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Overall, I strongly recommend this location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jyothi Great and friendly service
I checked in to the hotel with no expectations. This hotel was chosen only due to its location in relation to my business meetings. I was also recovering from a bad flu. I was pleasantly surprised by the service provided, including how well my request to change of room was received and people like May strived really hard to ensure that my stay was pleasant, receiving every one of my requests with a smile. They were so friendly that I would definitely go back stay there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yogini Good location and comfortable stay
I stayed 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Coral Gable. I was able to walk to nearby food and grocery stores, as well as the yoga studio where I was doing a training program, which made the hotel's location ideal.
The first night I noticed a constant dripping sound coming from the toilet. I told the front desk staff the next morning, and they said they'd have it checked/fixed, or would move me to another room. When I returned to the hotel that night (12 hours later), the toilet fix was still "pending" and the evening staff wasn't aware of the issue. I went up to my room to find the noise still there. I wished that the Holiday Inn had been more proactive with this fix. I would have preferred not having to move rooms at 10pm. In any case, I let the front desk know and they promptly brought me up a key for another room.
All in all, a comfortable stay.

My daughter and I were very exhausted from our busy day on the Big U's campus, and it was so nice to have a clean, comfortable, safe, relaxing place to sleep. Our breakfast the next morning was great. Kudos to the staff, they were so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel, and especially if you are visiting the college there, it is so convenient.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gm20636 Good Service, but hotel needs an up lift
Staff & service was very attentive. The lobby area and restaurant are presented well. However, the hallways and rooms really could use an overhall. The elevator door fell apart when opening. Pool area is very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by coralgablenov13 Great Front Desk Staff
The proximity to the university is fantastic. The personnel in the hotel were way above average and very responsive to problems and/or requests. The area is very congested making it difficult to drive anywhere without getting stuck in traffic back-ups, and a lot more stopping then going.
Great customer service from Gabriel and Billy!!

This was our third time in two months staying at the hotel. The staff has always been professional and kind. We have had breakfast and dinner and enjoyed the food. We will be visiting more while our daughter attends the UM. Thank you again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingUM Glad we only stayed for one night
Other than the convenient location to the University of Miami, and a pretty friendly staff, there isn't much to recommend at this hotel. To begin with, the room had a strong chemical odor, (carpet cleaner?)and the room and carpet was dank with moisture. The carpet was a very old dark green shag-type rug that looked as if was very riddled with germs.The bathtub had a shower curtain that didn't quite fit properly.(too small) We had asked to NOT be on the first floor and for a king size bed when we made our reservation online, (prepaid) which was confirmed. However, when we checked in, we were given a room on the first floor with a queen sized bed. My very tall husband slept with his feet hanging off the bed all night. They didn't seem to offer any sort of compensation, and offered a half-genuine apology.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnsatisfiedandAngry Absolutely horrible
To start, the walls are paper thin. We could hear everything from the people talking down the hallway to conversations happening downstairs in the parking lot. Just as we were falling asleep, a man was trying to force his way into our room. He mixed up what floor he was on, and the person at the front desk got him to the right room, but HIS KEY COULD OPEN OUR ROOM. The only thing keeping him out was the manual lock we threw overthe door. His keyboard was allowing him to open our hotel door. It was horrible!
THEN, the entire thing was topped off by the "holds they placed on my account. There was no warning that a hold could be placed, and when I called a couple hours after checking out, I was told that the hotel "doesn't usually inform their customers of the hold." IT STILL IS ON MY ACCOUNT. The charge for the room has already been processed and cleared, but the entire separate hold for an amount MORE THAN MY ROOM COST is still on my account. When I tried to contact the person who could fix it, there didn't answer the phone and I have yet to hear back from them.
I'm absolutely disgusted with this hotel, and I will never be staying there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tanguera Comfortable, great staff and location
I chose this hotel primarily for its location and free parking, but was pleasantly surprised regarding the quality of the room and quiet and relaxing atmosphere. I got a room with a king bed, mini fridge and a microwave, and a view of the pool and a courtyard. Bathroom was smallish but had a nice walk in shower (clearly a renovated part). I dined at the hotel's restaurant (dinner and breakfast, and it was not great but acceptable and priced right.
Having stayed in Coral Gables previously at a more expensive place, I felt that I got a great value and all that I needed at this Holiday Inn.
I will stay there again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lake310 Good Location and friendly
The location is excellent, just right across the UM. Staff are friendly, much friendly than 2 years ago. Check in/check out was fast and friendly. Breakfast was OK with very limited selections, though the price was reasonable. The room was clean and well maintained. However, I don't like to sleep under the light. The curtain was useless. It was thin and white. It can't block much light. If you can't sleep under lights (at night, lights from light post outside), avoid this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JG33 Best hotel stay in ages!
Everything about this hotel exceeded expectations. The price was so reasonable that we didn't expect such a lovely public area, beautiful pool and lounging area, fantastic, nutritious breakfast, comfortable room, and extraordinary service and friendliness of the staff. If we return to the U of Miami for any reason, this is definitely where we will stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GoCanes Awesome experience Great place to stay!
We had such a great experience at this Holiday Inn. I was worried what we were getting for the money because the cost of the room was so affordable. For a few more dollars literally we upgraded our room. There were 4 adults in our party (myself, my husband and two adult children) and I was concerned that even the upgrade was not enough space. We got in the room and I was blown away. We got room 301 which was a corner room overlooking the pool. The room was awesome! Not even including the small perfect size fridge and the microwave and sink area. The room was just out of this world. We had 2 double beds in the room and we also had a rollaway brought up that there was no charge for. This did not cramp the room in the least. I could go on and on about this hotel. It was in a great, safe area across from UM. The only downer was that I wish the bar was open in the afternoons (it was around 3:00). We wanted to sit down relax and have a drink but the bar was closed. But that does not takeaway at all from the perfect experience we had here. Please do not hesitate to stay at this hotel. It was a bargain for what we paid and you definitley get your moneys worth and more.
