A romance has brought me to Miami...and this US my third stay here while visiting my lady. What a pleasant surprise: friendly staff, clean rooms, convenient location, and most reasonable rates make this a great place to stay. Add in a very nice continental breakfast and it's a clear winner!

I am planning to stay at El Palacio again this year because it was so nice and the staff were so pleasant. It was also ideally located for visiting with my grandchildren and attending U of M baseball games. It is an old hotel and I loved the landscaping and sense of history. This year I am traveling with my...

Okay for a trip to Sunrise Stadium. Old and just okay. I got a nice respiratory thing, I think from mold. Basketball courts available for the kids. Shower curtain was hanging by a thread, but they fixed it.

By far the worst hotel i have ever stayed at. I don't know if the other reviewers were paid but its definitely not a wonderful place. The room smelled disgusting, the bathroom was filthy and to top it off my room had no towels. When i requested some, they told me they didn't have any. What kind of hotel is...

I’m not sure where the people who rated this hotel before me …really stayed. My family tells me that there are two locations with the same name. All I know is the location by the stadium is a dump!

Thank you. The location was great! This was our second visit. We were on the 5th floor the first time and in room 818 this past Thanksgiving weekend. We enjoyed being over the horserace track. The maid service was very good. Thanks for asking.
