The owner was very nice and was able to provide more towels and pillows upon request. The AC worked great and the room was clean. It made due for a one night stay before our cruise but probably wouldn't stay again. The hotel is outdated and so is the furniture. The location isn't the best. There are cigarette burns on the end tables, toilet seat, blanket, and pillow cases. The bed squeaks and the area is noisy at night. There is a bar fence to keep people from just coming up to the back of the hotel rooms.
I made the mistake of falling for this motel’s great marketing. I know the pictures they post look great. I am only posting because the staff completely disregarded my concerns. I have immunodeficiencies and asthma, and am very sensitive to mildew, mold, dust, etc. When I went, the smell of chemical fumes and cigarettes was overwhelming. As soon as I walked into the room, I broke out in hives. The towels were unfolded and looked used, there were cigarette burn holes in the sheets, there was dust, dirt, grime, and hair on the furniture and floor, and when I requested to leave immediately, they refused to give me a refund. I called back a couple times to request to speak to a manager and left my number to contact, and never got a response. Don’t make the same mistake I did. It’ll be worth spending the fee extra dollars to avoid this place, I PROMISE.…
The Hotel is old and the area is certainly not the best in miami, but the owner and the staff are really caring, keeping things clean and tidy. Wifi is EXCELLENT, one of the best I found in hotels. Furnuture dated but room really clean. Good value for the little money you pay
First off, I stayed here Super Bowl weekend so the prices of every place to stay was about 4 times the average so I can't comment if the place is worth the price. Shalimar is located in a nice few blocks. My wife and I walked to Starbucks in the morning each day. The neighborhood did not look bad at all during the day. I couldn't get a good read on it at night since we just came back and went to bed but compared to other parts of Miami it did not look too bad. The people at check inn was very kind. We received a "gift bag" of an activity guide and chips and cookies which was cute. It was also nice having free onsite parking. The room was pretty basic. Tile floors which I like because carpet floors can get nasty if places don't clean them. The bathroom was a little outdated but it was clean. Once again, I wasn't expecting the Ritz. The location is also great. We were able to take a cheap Uber to South Beach and other different areas in Miami. Now for the drawbacks. The biggest issue was the walls in the room are super thin. I was hearing people in the rooms above me for most of the night and it was getting difficult to sleep. There was no phone in room thus calling down would be very difficult. The TV and cable was also very sub par. I don't go on vacation to watch TV but it was hard to find the news or watch some TV before bed at night. It also seemed like they were very tight when it came to pillows and towels because it was difficult to receive extra pillows and towels. In summary, I would recommend this motel to people depending on the overall price. Like I said we were here Super Bowl weekend so the prices were inflated. You pay for good location, parking, and a semi-decent roof over your head.…
Miami is outrageously pricey. And Miami Beach in particular. In that context, it made more sense to book somewhere out of town and take Uber to and from town, particularly if you need somewhere with car parking.. We chose Shalimar. The location is pretty horrible - wouldn't really want to walk around after dark...not that there's much you'd want to walk to. Bullet proof glass for the receptionist to hide behind probably tells you something. The room was bare bones. Ok for 2 nights in the context of saving a lot of money, but otherwise you would consider it inadequate. Breakfast was a bit of a joke so don't count on using that facility. That all being said, we could park there and did save a lot of money relative to staying in Miami Beach.
Very nice motel, cleanliness,family friendly, location,staff and above all owners.will love to stay again in same motel in my next visit.owners were really very helpful to guide us about places to be visited in Miami as well as about Orlando parks guidence was very helpful.here I am adding some pictures with owners family and my holiday group families.
The motel was ok - the room was clean but a bit dated - could do with some updating. The breakfast was ok - it was basically a 'continental' breakfast. It is a little way away from downtown Miami - if you don't have a car it is a bus ride.
Thank God we only had to stay there 1 night - Tired, OLD OLD facility is an understatement, NO ventilation in the bath or the room except for the in wall ac, No hand towels in the bath, No tissues anywhere, crumbling paint, CAN'T open the bathroom door all the way because it HIT's the BED. Speaking of Bed's, THE Most Uncomfortable BED EVER as well as the tired old pillows Shalimar makes the old no tell motel look like the RITZ . Great Location, Refurbished it could B great Book at your own risk, You've been warned
We were here for one night staying in a second floor room on the side. The room backed onto a side street and there was very little street noise. The Shalimar, according to a sign in the room was built in 1950. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable. The A/C was noisy so we turned it off for the night. The room did not become too hot. The included breakfast is muffins, bagels, and juice/coffee - not much but sufficient until lunch. The bathroom was tiny, the towel rack was missing, the towels were kept in the closet so you had to notice that before your shower. There are several restaurants nearby for supper. I would stay again. The office staff were very helpful as we learned the neighbourhood during our short stay.
Room was ok. Clean. Breakfast OK but limited. No fridge or microwave in the room but was able to use a microwave in the breakfast area. No coffee making facility in the room. Was charged an extra $50 on arrival which they called a service charge! This I found repugnant!
