    The location is ideal for those who like to be able to find their hotel in the dark. Arrived once the sun set so being able to take few roads to find it was a big plus. This hotel was easy to navigate from to find the hospltal and doctors offices we had to visit.

    The hallways were a bit messy. Staff should clean them more regularly.

    Superb

    I felt that we got good value for the money spent: nice swimming pool courtyard area, tennis court less than a block away, nice rooms--close to being luxurious with extras such as firm and soft pillows. Good beds too! Also, management was quick to make amends for an absent newspaper (in the lobby) on the first day by arranging on the second day to slip a morning newspaper under the room door. Nice touch since we did not make a big deal about the absent newspaper.

    Regrettably, the hotel is located a fair distance from the downtown area of Coral Gables with its substantial shopping/dining opportunities.

    This is the first time in all of my years of hotel stays that we were in a room that did not come equipped with a fridge. Our room also had no balcony. Breakfast was not included in our rates. It seemed to me that when you book this hotel through this web site you just get a plain room. Perhaps it helps the hotel management offset the reduced price that we pay on this site. When we requested a fridge we were told that they would try but then we never heard from the front desk again........

    Location was close to where I wanted to be. Wifi access was fast, easy and free.

    Hotel looked old and in need of major upgrades. Air conditioners were window-type, extremely loud when running, so I had to turn it off to sleep. Shower had long hairs on the floor belonging to some other guest. Room safe did not work. Remote control for tv did not work. Extremely thin walls allowed all sorts of noise to filter in from the other rooms. They did not clean the room until after 4 pm.

    This Holiday Inn was perfectly located for our trips to South Beach, Miami, Key Buscayne, and the most beautiful Coral Gables. It was very reasonable with a good layout and enjoyable pool area. We were happy with our decision to stay here and recommend it if you do not care to stay in the cities but close enough to get to them. It was very clean and quite comfortable. The location was also easily accessible to the Miami Airport.

    Good

    We have stayed at this hotel for a few days every year over the past several years. It is convenient to the University and to our family.

    We have used the bar area, but only once used the restaurant because the prices are high and the quality indifferent.

    I stayed at a Hampton Inn the night before and it was $169 and it was very nice. When I stayed at the Holiday Inn it was $300. Seemed like a lesser value
