Stayed here for 7 days and found the hotel well worth the money. Room was clean and comfortable. Great view of the training horse track. Food at the Sports Grill was good but it closed at 8PM weekdays and 10PM on Friday and Saturday. I definitely would stay there again.

We recently stayed at Stadium Hotel for about one month and we enjoyed the gorgeous views looking out of our balcony to the south east, the breakfast and the renovated lobby. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Specially thanks to Victoria who took care of our special request to accommodate the seniors. Very convenient location between Miami and Hollywood....

I have stayed at this hotel in the past. This time was a little different. The outside of hotel has fresh paint. The hotel lobby has been remodeled and it looks GREAT!!!!!!!!!! The hotel over-all is clean and decent. The bed was pretty hard. This hotel (in the past) had a full breakfast but now the breakfast very very unappealing....

Hotel staff - kind and friendly. Nice, safe parking. Close to turnpike - easy access Noisy - Turnpike is very loud to listen to at night. Breakfast - don't bother, unless you like sugary/greasy cereal & muffins Shower ran all night - noisy didn't turn off. Bed - broken & noisy. Felt like I was falling out of the bed.

If you're ok with ants in your room it's a nice hotel. We even switched rooms but still had ants. Told management, they said they wanted to send maintenance to confirm, essentially they didn't believe us. If it weren't for the ants and poor customer service it actually would have been a decent hotel. They said they would reimburse 20%...

I've stayed here numerous times before because the rooms are pretty good for the price. However this was the first time I've stayed since they've made a few changes. First they've created a bar in the downstairs lobby which is pretty nice. The only issue is that the kitchen is still on the top floor. So when ordering food you...

Hello arichkidd, Sorry you do not agrree with our hotel policies. Yes the kitchen is on the 9th floor. We do bring food down to the brand new restaurant on the first floor. Continental is a light cold FREE breakfast and is not allowed to be taken out of the 9th floor. Sorry. Respectfully, Guest Relations Manager

Stadium Hotel provided the family what we needed for a convenient, easy stop over while attending game day at Hard Rock Stadium. Room was older, but clean and pleasant and served its purpose quite well. Breakfast was a little lite, but again served its purpose providing us with something before pigging out at the stadium.
