A family member and I spent one week at this hotel. We rented two rooms which had been prepaid through an Internet booking site.\r\n\r\nI had no extras at all, so that I left the hotel after getting an invoice with a zero balance. My relative paid his extras with his credit card and got the corresponding invoice.\r\n\r\nSurprisingly enough, a few days later, his banking card was debited an extra US$ 389.01 ! This did not correspond to any spending in this hotel. It was finally credited back after multiple mails and some 3 weeks later ?\r\n\r\nMore surprisingly even, I discovered 4 weeks later that the credit card I had given for imprint (different from the one used for prepayment) for possible extras and which was not supposed to be used (no extras) had also been debited of US$ 259.34. Since this was the second ""bad experience"", the bank card was credited back relatively rapidly (nevertheless, after multiple e-mails again).\r\n\r\nHowever, living outside the US, bank charges for change / debit / credit were far from negligible. Holiday Inn simply refused to reimburse these charges although the error was clearly not mine. I insisted, and was finally reimbursed a symbolic US$10 !\r\n\r\nStatistics are highly unfavourable : two guests out of two (100%) have had the same ""misadventure"" ?\r\n\r\nYou better carefully watch your bank statement after staying at this location !!\r\n

Every time I travel I try to stay in a holiday express. Their staff is always friendly and professional. They are quick to get you whatever it is that you need. They work with you on check in and check out times. The rooms are always clean. And the pools and hot tubs are always clean and well kept.

My recent stay in early August of 2008 was interesting to say the least. My Ford F250 King Ranch was stolen out of the hotel parking lot. Upon reporting it to the police, I learned that this hotel has been having a rash of break ins. (this from the Coral Gables Police Dept Vehicle Theft Unit) I was able to recover my truck two weeks later, but the hotel was not interested in paying for the $650.00 of items that were taken out of the truck. They used to have a security camera in the parking lot but removed it ""beacuse it gace a false sense of security"" according to Marco, the htoel General Manager. They do have a security guard that is supposed to come on at 9:00PM but he is also responsible for the inside of the hotel as well.\r\nI would not recommend this hotel at this time, and the owners will not provide the necessaty security and accountablility.\r\nTry the Hampton Inn Dadeland of the Marriott Dadeland instead if looking in this area to stay.
