The hotel is in a great location to many things. My issue is it needs some work. Rooms are a bit out dated and staff is decent. I had a problem with my tv picture. They got someone right up to fix it. The picture was snowy and the guy hit the back off it and made it better for...

This motel is a sad commentary on the profit motive. Locate a property in a popular destination with relatively little competition and let it perform as a cash cow, regardless of quality, looks, or smell. The Holiday Inn at Coral Gables is operated by a private owner who clearly doesn't care much about anything but margins. The people who work...

Recent stay of 2 nights on business. Found day and evening desk staff and maintenance staff very cordial, helpful and knowledgable. The facility sorely needs a makeover. There were live ants in the room, one of us was bitten, the room smelled stale and old, the balcony was nice, except it looked over a parking lot and had NO chairs...

I remember old Florida and back then it was OK. Now its just dated, and tired. The rooms were sized well, two queens and a nice but shared patio. The bathroom was tiny. Just large enough for the tub/shower, a toilet and sink. Might be the smallest I've ever seen. The hotel has a characteristic odor of damp carpet or...

I stayed at the Holidays Inn Coral Gables for a business trip. I needed a place close to the University of Miami and this place was about 20 min walk in high heels! I had a second floor room that had a view of the outdoor pool. The ambient was surely nice looking. Staff were also very friendly. Cleaning staff...

Great hotel that is very close to the University of Miami campus. Hotel staff from check-in to check-out were fantastic. The lounge area is a great place to unwind. Outside patio is very nice. I will definitely stay here again.

This hotel is quite close to Uni of Miami as well as the metro. It is a bit old but keep very clean. The staff are very friendly and they also keep packages for you before your arrival. The only thing though is that breakfast should be included in the packages or free for that matter. However there are a...

Front desk staff was very friendly and efficient, club status was recognized. Room was at the end of a very very long hallway and as a female traveling alone that made me a bit uncomfortable. I would request a room closer to the elevator if I stayed again. Carpet was dingy and needs replacing. Adequate desk and small table in...

Stayed from the 11-13. Had a great experience all around. IHG status recognized by front desk staff, Juan at the bar provided excellent service while we watched the game. Not too pricey for a hotel bar. Room was cleaned while we were out next day. Only negatives would be no alcohol during the day, but plenty of local places. Photo...
