Conveniently located to the Falls shopping center (about a mile away) and Dadeland Mall about 5 miles away. My husband & I (with a 30lb dog) had planned a shopping trip from the Keys and this hotel was chosen because it was lowest-priced pet-friendly hotel in the area. That said, it was the most we have ever paid for a basic motel room. Bed mattress was lumpy, in-room air conditioning unit was very noisy and we could hear noises from people walking past outside the room. There were stains on the carpet and the bathroom was functional but dated. In the room there was a small table with 2 chairs in addition to a desk with a desk chair. We had expected and paid for a queen sized bed but we were pretty certain it was not a queen sized bed, more like a double/full sized bed. The check-in staff were efficient, welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was served buffet-style in the adjoining restaurant and we were surprised that it included freshly cooked scrambled eggs and bacon along with the normal mini-muffins, yogurts, cereals, bagels, English muffins, juices, tea and coffee. There was a toaster you could use. We did not use the swimming pool. There is a very pleasant strip mall next door to the motel about 2-3 minutes walk along the sidewalk that has a couple of restaurants, coffee shop, smoothie bar and breakfast place and a few stores. We walked there with the dog and it was a very nice walk.
The University of Miami borders South Miami, an established suburb with clusters of 1920s Mediterranean-style homes. The area is also of significant archeological note. The Deering Estate at Cutler has evidence of human activity from 10,000 years ago, and it has a 17th-century Native American burial mound. Nearby, more than 400 primates roam free in the Monkey Jungle, a popular area attraction.
