... We followed the signs that led us to a monorail which we caught over to the bus/train and car rental area of the Miami airport. We purchased two tickets for the bus at $2.65 each and waited about 15 minutes for the next 150 bus. There was racks on the bus for luggage which was great and the bus took us right into South Beach and we got off just a short walk away from the Santa Barbara hotel where we were staying. So after a taxi, a train, a bus, a walk, a ...

... Runway in the last season so it was cool to go there. They had all sorts of candy. Lots of chocolate in all sorts of flavours including Bacon!

Then it was dinner time, so that is about all to report. Unless you are keen to know we drove by the DASH store - those who watch the Kardashins will know what I mean.

Highlight: That summer time ...

... did come around and pose for some photos which they loved.

Next, we visited Saks at Bal Harbour shops to purchase Yang's swimwear. It was a really long process! but finally we got one that she liked. Women swimwear is expensive for not a lot of material. Note to self "best time to buy is at the end of summer for the following year". The shops there are very nice with all the expensive brands and nice looking people ...

I'm in Miami Bitch. I mean Beach*

... to put it in and I was wriggling like crazy. First they did and ECG to check my heart, by putting these sticky things on my chest and connecting me up to a machine, it was not enjoyable. They left my hooked up to the machine all day to monitor my breathing. The doctor said that my oxygen level was 94/100 - apparently low enough to condone a tube with oxygen being put in my nose. A while later I was told that my heart was fine, which was good to know. The doctor ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews San Juan Hotel Miami Beach

    Wouldn't let me worst enemy stay there

    from

    Do not even consider staying at the San Juan hotel.

    We booked it via the internet. As soon as i stepped foot into this rat hole i knew it was a bad decision.

    The rooms were disgusting and smelled. Needs tons of renovation. It actually had an old time stove plugged into the wall. very unsafe. the windows and carpet was disgusting. i didnt even sit on the bed.

    We didnt even stay there. We told the manager thanks but no thanks and end up staying somewhere else..

    San Juan is San Hell!!!

    Was OK

    from

    Had a definate oder when you walk in the lobby. In fact when I came home and unpacked I could still smell the hotel. The place looks run down. The water pressure in the bathroom is horrible. the location is excellent! Right across the street from the beach. So if all your going to do is sleep in the room is a good, cheap option. If your looking for luxury and a hotel with plush amenities this is not the place.

    Please avoid this "SHELTER"

    from

    Please avoid this hotel that I'd like to call a shelter because is no better....the elevator stayed broke for 10 days and nobody cared to fix it,I had to carry my daughter on the stroller up and down the stairs,so pleassssse avoid this hotel and don't ignore the reviews like I did.....believe it or not this hotel made my vacation miserable.

    Believe me.. it's true

    from

    I had read the reviews before, and didn't want to believe them. Upon arriving at the hotel, I realized what I had read was true. Although the location is great, it dosen't make up for how awful the place is. The carpet is old and dirty, the rooms are horrible, and the batroom, well let's just say I took a shower with my sandles on. One good thing I must say is that the staff was attentive. My friend had left behind her jacket upon check out and they left it at the front desk for her. I was traveling with three girlfriends and we did not feel safe at all. All we did was sleep there, got up and headed straight to the beach. We avoided being there most of the time. My advice, pay a little more, it would be so worth it.

    One word: Gross

    from

    I implore you, do not stay at this den of filth. The lobby smelled awful, the halls reminded me of tangerine painted mental institution, the beds rock hard, the room had a distinct smoke/semen odor. I am pretty sure people were smoking crack in front. My friend and I booked for 3 nights and were lucky enough to find friends to crash with for 2 of them. For the love of God, do not stay here, for any length of time.

    Decent hotel

    from

    I stayed at SJ hotel last June and found it to be decent. You cant expect the same as a $300 a night room when you're paying less than a third of that. the SJ hotel is nothing fancy but my room was clean, the bathroom was fine. the pool was relatively clean though could've used some attention. the location is good and there was always a cab parked out front and the people behind the desk were cool with me. my only complaint was the damn lock on the door. it was impossible to open. I was almost tempted to kick down the door one night. for its cheap price, its a good deal. I've stayed in better hotels and stayed in worse. SJ is a good budget hotel. If you want a more classy place then you should be looking in the $200+ a night range. Not for rooms under $100.

    Stay Away!

    from

    prepaid for 5 nights so was stuck there...no hot water, dirty linens, no vacuuming, rude front desk staff, no controls for room temperature, room lock poor (two flimsy chains), the valet parking service drove our car 60 miles and used a half tank of gas and they refused to waive the parking charge...I expected an older property, somewhat run down but it was much much worse than that. A plain old days inn would seem like the ritz carlton next to this place. Talked to others staying there at the same time with similar experience.

    Run as fast you you can from this rat trap!!!!

    from

    Upon enering the lobby, the place smelled like an old truck stop doused with beer, and the man at the desk had a personality to match. When we opened the door to our room, the stnch of old urine overwhelmed us. The toilet wouldn't flush, the sheets on the bed looked dirty and worn, and there were stains on the side of the mattress, resembling blood or feces. Needless to say, we stayed at the Marseilles Hotel across the street instead, which was clean and well-worth the extra $40 a night.

    If you have any standards at all, do not stay at the San Juan!

    If you like nasty smelly hotels, stay here!

    from

    Run as fast as you can! We first arrived to encounter a guy at the desk. He wouldn't look up for several minutes. After introducing ourselves, he gave us a key and told us to go look at the room "to see if we wanted it." The whole place smelled horrible and we walked into a room and tried to open the refrigerator door but it was warm and smelly. We then tried to turn on every light but not even one worked.

    There was a family across the hall that was entering their room for the first time. We all looked at one another, laughed, turned around and left. We found another place right away. Trust me, I am not by any means picky but that hotel was beyond belief!

    Terrible - Do not visit this hotel

    from

    We arrived at this hotel from Las Vegas. We had booked it via the Internet. This hotel is in need of a complete refurbishment. It is dirty and badly rundown.We walked into the room and walked straight out.I advise anyone not to book this hotel!!Regards
