Vintage Hotel, not as bad as reviews

We stayed at the Thunderbird Resort, paid for valet parking only a couple of dollars more than self park and no problem how often you needed your vehicle.The hotel is dated but very airy and light in main reception area, receptionist was friendly and helpful. We had 3 double double rooms, over looking the building site next door. The rooms were clean if not modern, very acceptable, one of our rooms had a cooker and sink.The pool area was clean and tidy, looked very inviting but we were so tired after the trip down from Canaveral we just went to the Tiki Bar, which was run down but full of friendly folk. After a few too many rum and cokes the place closed around 21:00 which was a shame we then ate in the Diner / Restaurant. The best rotisserie chicken ever. We returned next morning for a nice breakfast and the evening for an amazing Chicken Alfredo. They made the best Crepes...The tour advisor by reception was very helpful allowing us to book a red bus tour around Miami and a boat cruise around the lagoons. It was a very long day but enjoyed the areas we visited, it was very hot on that bus.......Sadly only had two nights in Miami, recommend the hotel.I was very cautious after reading the reviews but apart from being Vintage it was clean, tidy and very friendly.

Dated but comfortable and convenient.

My girlfriend and I recently spent 2 weeks in Florida based in this hotel. Our reasons for choosing Days was down to it's reasonable price (part of a holiday package that included free parking).The decor and fittings throughout the hotel look like they haven't been updated since the late 80's, though I found it to be clean and tidy for the duration of my stay. Our room consisted of built in wardrobe with a free electronic safe, a small kitchen with fridge/freezer, sink and cooker, bathroom and balcony. The TV was a CRT which was kind of quaint. I wasn't in florida to watch TV so I wasn't put out by this. We had 2 double beds that we found to be very comfortable. The balcony was north facing so we could see the beach (and catch the sunrise) by looking right. If you're looking for somewhere cheap to stay whilst enjoying what miami has to offer, give Days a try.

A pleasant surprise

We weren't expecting much. After all, we'd read all the reviews on TripAdvisor, and the Thunderbird had been given some almighty kickings. However, we were prepared to take all the complaints on board, and found the hotel was rather better than we could have hoped for. Yes, it is fairly basic; but the room rates reflect that. Yes, it is old, compared to the shining, indeed glittering, edifices lined along Sunny Isles beach beside it. But we had a very big, clean and well-furnished room with a balcony overlooking both pool and ocean. The parking is a pain; if you don't want to pay for the rather grumpy valet, you have to put your car in a dusty and often muddy site across the very busy street. It is unlit, pot-holed and a bit scary.. And you have to fight for your space with all the construction workers from sites nearby. It is also unfair that although guests have to pay to park, visitors come and go for the evening bars and entertainment without being charged. The pool scene is lively, the two bars can be enjoyably raucous, and pool and beach staff are helpful, and the rest of the hotel staff are, well, relaxed to the point of eccentricity. To be staying literally on the beach for only $160 a night in peak season as we did last winter, and for a lot less than that in off-season, as we did recently...well, there has to be a catch. But we didn't find one; We've booked to go back next winter.

On a special offer this place is great

It is a old motel but well-kept , the rates vary greatly , I have stayed here from $62 to $100. It's right on the sand and the amenities are very nice very nice pool beach is beautiful. You have to be real careful here because the initial price is not the real price they nickel-and-dime and fee you to death, there is a "resort fee" and parking fee that's not mentioned how many of the sides when you butt. Expect to pay 25 to $35 extra over your booking price. All in all to stay right on this and it's a good value
