I'm not sure what's with all the negative reviews because my friend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The location is great. It is within walking distance to many restaurants, bars and a Target right around the corner. It is also super close to the beach. I felt like the neighborhood was pretty quiet while we were there. The walls and windows are pretty thin but that's a given at most apartment complexes. Yes, you will hear cars passing by at night so if you are a light sleeper, maybe bring ear plugs and you'll be fine. Also, I saw some reviews say the neighborhood wasn't great but, it seemed to me like it was perfectly fine. I saw a lot of people walking, walking their dogs and biking everywhere. It was a place with everything we were looking for during our stay in Miami- a fridge, bathroom, shower, bed and two plasma TVs. Roberto, the manager is very responsive which was also a plus. The place does have a little bit of a moldy smell but I'd say that was the only negative. If you are expecting to stay at a place that's very upscale, then this may not be the place for you. If you will be spending most of your day out and about like we did on our vacation, you are looking for basic necessities and a good location near many shops then it is a good place to stay.
