Comfortable, yet a bit worn
Cream walls, floral prints, and dark-wood furniture make the rooms look a bit out of date, at least when you compare them to the typical hotel room in Miami. While the guest room are a bit bigger than you might find at some of the older Art Deco hotels in South Beach, the rooms with two double beds might feel cramped for a family. It's fine for a night before catching a cruise, but the rooms are not ideal for a longer vacation.
No beaches, clubs, or shopping within walking distance
In the heart of Downtown, the Holiday Inn is only minutes from the Port of Miami and close to the financial district. But the only things within walking distance are a few delis and a Walgreens pharmacy, about three blocks away.
This Holiday Inn -- just minutes from the Port of Miami and the Miami business district -- is fine for a cheap crash pad, but it's not ideal for a vacation. There's nothing nearby but a Walgreens and Cuban delis. Though dated and definitely worn, the small rooms have comfortable beds and great views.
