Horrible hotel atleast back in 2011 when it was called Howard Johnson Plaza Dezerland Beach & Spa

by Marko H on 07 Jun 2015

OMG did this hotel have to change its name to get rid of bad revievs or was there some other change? Well we visited this building december 2011 and wrote my bad experiences here. The there was noisy corridors, not so clean rooms, the location was bad. Also the was breakfast included then, but you would only be allowed to take serials and juices and bread with your breakfast coupon. If you wanted to have a real breakfast it costs more. Wat a rip off. So wa the parking.

Uh, not ever again!!!

We flew into Miami from Orlando and missed our flight by 7 minutes. No other flights were available so we were re-booked for the next morning at 7:15 a.m. We were given a "distressed rate" for the Howard Johnsons of $82.00 and sent on our way. We went down to wait for the HJ shuttle bus at 8:00 p.m. NOTHING!!! All other competitors went by several times but nothing for Howard Johnsons. So we called to find out when they were expected. My husband was told around 9:45 p.m. This was at 8:00...

Not the best place I have ever stayed

by Cichosz8 on 02 Mar 2015 (Solo Traveller)

I came to Miami for the Battlefrog Race that was at a nearby park. Otherwise I would never stay in Hialeah. No one speaks english in Haileah. Anyway, the hotel is super run down.

The bartender left me sitting for 10 minutes before serving me a drink, It was only me and another gentlemen in the bar. He c...

Great location, dated hotel, poor maintenance and a blood stained sheet!

by FoodIsMyDrug on 17 Feb 2015 (Couple Traveller)

I booked this hotel as it was a fair price and a good location. After parking and going to our room we noticed the hotel wasnt exactly up to date. It seemed ok, with a fridge in the room. There was a few dints in the walls, the door lock was tired and the bathroom was clearly very old. This is the first time Ive been to a hotel where there was a clump of crusty clotted blood on my bed. I saw it in time before jumping on. A replacement blanket was sent up with a rather large grumpy looking sec...

Better with the upgrade.

by Zoe S on 03 Feb 2015 (Friends Traveller)

I have state at this particular HoJo on two occasions. It was refreshing to see the second time around that the hotel had done a renovation/redecoration. The first time I was there the creepy people statues used to scare the poop out of me!! My only down side is the breakfast. It is pretty good, just a bit more excitement would be better :)
