... amp; early morning away. A late start naturally on Sunday anyway once we did get going we caught a late lunch & then went & picked our wheels up. A nice big black Dodge Challenger is ours for the next 2 weeks. We went for a drive, just to go for a drive of course, wandered a beach & drove back to the hotel. Driving on the wrong side is gunna take some getting used ...
... your head and wonder what I’m saying – but - it will have an immediacy to it! I’ll try to post one to three photos and fill in more when we get home.
Here's our itinerary: We'll have 11 nights in Sicily, 8 nights in the Dolomites (Italian
Alps),1 night enroute to Umbria in a tiny town along the way, and 8 nights in Umbria (the center of Italy near Tuscany) and 1 night

... and sizes wandering around and their respective shapes didn't appear to play any part in determining what type of clothing to wear. Some looked good and others, not so much. I don't think I have ever seen such a diverse bunch of people in such a concentated area. There were of course the beauties as seen in all the shows set in Miami as well as the buff pretty boys and then there were the others. Now the others are people who think they can wear what the beauties ...

The agent that did ticket us and checked our luggage directed us to the other side of the ticketing area to get a wheelchair. ...

Unfortunately, our joy at pulling into an international airport at 10.30 was short lived when we found out it was the wrong airport and Miami was still an hour away! We bombed it down the highway to try and get there on time but still ended up being around half an hour late. It didn't matter anyway as the rental guys told us you actually get an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Miami Beach / Oceanside
WORST STAY EVER!
Booked it for 1 week, stayed 1 night!
Please do NOT stay there! Itīs horrible, NOT clean at all, unfriendly staff, shabby, please go somewhere else, everything is better than better than THAT!!!
My friends and I went to Miami Beach for spring break 2004. It was great to have fun there and the beach was awesome. We stayed at this hotel and were dissappointed in the rooms. The lobby was very nice but the room wasn't. The bathroom was very dirty, with mold and cracks in the floor. The window was so dirty you could barely see outside. The walls are paper thin, we were talking and laughing and the mgmnt came up and asked us to quiet down even though we weren't that loud. They did have excellent housekeeping, because we had sand in our shoes and it was all on the floor, but after they came in it was all vaccuumed up. The pool was very nice but very small, the Ocean that was in front of the hotel was very nice. just a walk over the boardwalk to a beautiful sandy beach with perfectly blue waters. I would reccommend the room to someone on a budget wanting to stay ON the beach.
The place is sort of rundown, but for the price it is not bad, not musty smelling like alotof reviews I have read about Miami Beach hotels.We stayed for 4 nights in Feb 2004 and it was around $500 total.
Definitely not worth the price!
Yes, the lobby was nice,but the room was horrible. From the dirty, mildew-covered, cracked-floored bathroom to the moldy ceiling, dirty windows, very loud and annoying air conditioner, paper-thin walls, very slow valet (although it wasn't the valet's fault, since there was only one guy and a constant, huge line-up of cars), the 85-cent charge for local calls from the room (?!?!?!?!), to hearing the water running from the shower in the room above us. Free access to a fitness facility at an adjoining hotel was advertised, but when we asked about it, we were told that it was no longer available to Days Inn guests. Definitely not worth the $160/night that I paid!!!!!
I agree with both March 11th Visitors
The lobby is the only nice part in the building, which leads you to believe the rest of it will be ok. Wrong. The room was pretty scanky, particularly the bathroom. Our room had an adjoining door to the room next to us that was so paper thin, I could hear young, rapper wanna-bes & spring breakers arriving home late at night.
I wouldn't consider eating breakfast, lunch or dinner downstairs in the sunrise cafe either.
Shame on you Miami.
Rooms are very rundown and dirty...
I was extremely disappointed with the Days Inn Oceanside. Yes, the Lobby and Pool areas were nice and the room was spacious... but it was also old, rundown and dingy. The furniture were mismatched and bulking from water damage.We even had a problem with mold in our room and tried looking at 3 other rooms... but they were all equally unappealing.As a native, we love this strip of beach and tried saving monies by staying at the Days Inn, but it completely back-fired on us.If I were you, I would spend the extra cash and stay in one of the newer hotels and forgo the older hotels even if they have been remodeled.
This is my favorite stretch of beach, so logically I looked for the most reasonable place to stay. I made my reservations based on the previous good reviews... but was immediately disappointed when I walked into the room.
Lots of problems
My wife and I and our 3 month old only had two and a half days to enjoy Miami Beach. We arrived at our room and were instantly disappointed.
Old, fairly run-down, and felt kind of dirty. The room would have been adequate, but we had no hot water for most of our stay, no heat on our first night(very cool for Miami Beach), and the tv had some problems. I kind of hate to give such a bad rating because the lobby was nice, as was the pool and beach area, and the maid service was very consistent.
The hotel would be ok if you had hot water and everything else functioned properly, but for us it stunk.
had a fabulous time, the staff was accomadating warm and welcoming, beautiful hotel with a beautiful view of the beach, definitely a great place to stay when visiting miaimi!!
