    Simply awful. The staff is not at all friendly or helpful, and the hotel itself is inhabited by some pretty shady characters. The pool is decent and there's a space for a restaurant attached, but it's not in operation. The walls and furnishings are damaged and in need of repair. This no-frills motel is probably rented by the hour, if you know what I'm saying. There's a computer and a fax machine in the lobby for guests. The hotel concierge works behind a plexiglass screen. That pretty much sums it up.

    On the plus side, it's located in the trendy MiMo district, where there are many shopping and dining options. Likewise, I'd recommend paying a little more and going elsewhere.

    This place is in need of a major overhaul. On the plus side, they do have a pool and free coffee in the lobby. Motel Blu is one of the modern 50s kitsch hotels that sprang up on Biscayne back in its heyday. Now, the place is old and in need of renovations. The price is cheap, but I think there are better hotels in the area for the price. The problem was the dirty carpet and the very strong smoke and mold odor.
