    Reasonably priced easy access from florida turnpike

  • Family with children

    This hotel is very convient to shopping and restaurants. When we arrived at the front desk, the reception was excellent, but when we got to our rooms, there was a lizzard in the bathtub, the towels were very worn, the tub had not been cleaned. We found bed of ants dead in one of the three beds. If the cost of the rooms had not already been applied to the credit card, I would not have stayed there, but what is a customer to do, when the bill is paid before I arrive. And, by the way, were were not told it goes directly on the credit card when we book the rooms. Wonder why they put one room on the credit card and not the other room. Ummmmmmmmmm.

    The reception at the front desk

    The location we were seeing a game at the stadium which is walkable from hotel

    The only bar/grill in the hotel is closed from April-Aug. Fir redecoration. So if u want to get any food at the hotel or a drink then your out of luck. We asked at the front desk where we could go to eat and the lady had no where to advise us! A cleaning lady who overheard the convesation pointed us in the direction of the casnio next door who serve fast food and also have a restuarant, she was helpful and pointed us in a short cut to walk.

    I booked this hotel because it was closiest to the Sunlife Stadium where the carnival was going to be held. Also the Calder Casino was close by where some parties were kept. My purpose was not to shop but to enjoy the carnival. On the day in questioned, I enjoyed seeing other guest at the hotel dressed in their costumed and getting ready to leave for the streets and the stadium. Truly it had an atmosphere that was saying, yes, it"s carnival. With cars pulling up and hearing the sweet sound of soca music. I felt for the first time like I was in Trinidad.

    I was a bit disturbed on my arrival at the hotel. The hotel looks nice and well decored but as I went on the floor to access my room I noticed that the carpets on the floor looked old. On the inside in my room the carpet was the same,old and worn. Some funiture looked old and the beds were definitely too small. Even though I booked two double beds, as it was three of us staying in one room. There were not enough lighting in the room. Just one lamp between the two beds and none at the table, if u wanted to read while someone wanted to sleep. The tiolet and bath area was small. After I left I realise though, that it is an old hotel (rundown) that have been renovated but I also felt a little uncomfortable during my stay. Four pillows should have been on the bed and not two . room service was terrible. I left about 12 midday and requested that the room be cleaned only to return at 6:30pm and it was left the same way as I had left it. Also , I had a problem to get clean towels for three,which will include wash cloths and floor towel. At one point they had none.

    the worst hotel that I have been in my life. bad room service, no towels, bad breakfast, no tables to take the breakfast, no daily cleaning the room, floor dirty, if we needed a towel we had to go down to the front desk to take it, because housekeeping office starts at 9 am

  • Group of friends

    It was a good location for us. We were driving around a lot and the close proximity to the turnpike made for real easy getting out of town. We had a room facing the horse track and downtown Miami in the far distant. The balcony was actually pretty nice!

    Was a little run down. Did spot a mouse in the lower floor... Breakfast wasn't very good.

  • Group of friends

    Easy to get to different locations from El Palacio using the GPS. Continental breakfast was good. The front desk staff was very helpful.

    The Bed matresses are in bad shape. Sleeping on the beds for two persons in may party was unpleasant. Also, we had to repeatedly ask the front desk and house keeper for that correct amount of towels.

  • Single

    1) Only hotel in area very close to my ultimate destination. 2) Very close to Racetrack, Casino and Stadium. Good for racing/sports fans and gamblers. 3) Close proximity to super store (Walmarts), other shops and freeway (Turnpike)

    1) Hotel's description and amenities were totally different from that described in advertisement. 2) Hotel rated at 6, However, turned out to be a 2. 3) Too many unsupervised young teens hanging around and blocking front entrance on weekend nights. 4) Ineffective security at front entrance. 5) Lack of control of teenagers at front entrance. 6) Teen patrons appeared confrontational. Approached and asked about my ethnicity. 7) Above conditions are a turn off for international guests.

  • Group of friends

    Didn't like that we had to change our room. The next room shower kept backing up with water. We was Suppose to stay 3 night we stay 1 night.
