Stay away

We arrived early to Miami and called a few hotels to make sure if we book their hotel they have a room for us to check in at 9am. The guy at the hotel said they did. When we arrived 20 min later the same guy was displeased we booked at and said they have no rooms, then he said for an extra 50 he will check us in early, we paid, he called somewhere ,but the rooms werent ready, we waited another hour and a half. Why just not say "we have no rooms now"?We paid close to $210 for a crappy room, broken shower head, ripped shower curtains, everything dated, horrible front deskLocation is good though, but total rip off at $210

Never again !!!

Such a bad experience here. When we arrived after 40hours of travel there was no hot water in our room and we found that our balcony door couldn't even lock. We told them the next morning and upon arriving back that afternoon it still wasn't fixed (still hadn't showered) and had tickets for a game. They told us we had to change rooms then and there, even though we were already late, but couldn't find anyone to help with our bags. On top of that the receptionist charged us twice as a holding even though she tells us it was "declined". Upon sharing this we didn't even get an apology for all the stuff ups and she basically said there's nothing she can do about it. After check out the payment was then processed a third time! Positives: the guys in the restaurant offer great service and the beach side/pool was good

You get what you paid for, maybe more

We had 5 rooms on the first floor, right by the pool and near the bar/restaurant. If you want to stay at the Trump Grande and avoid some minor problems, then go next door. They will be glad to clear out your wallet. This is an older hotel, located right on the beach for little more than $100/night. Clearly a bargain. We had none of the problems reported by others. Our sole complaint was the AC was not very strong, but the desk furnished a box fan that made things OK. Parking at the beach is a problem and you will always pay one way or another. The food was OK, although we did not use our continental breakfast coupon. We had real food. The staff was helpful and polite. Our location had some pool and bar noise, but it was not a real problem. I would recommend this to most anyone who travels a lot and with family and needs to save some money.

I would not stay again

I never received a reservation. I never was informed of the self parking being $12 and $14 for valet, until I arrived at the hotel on check in. On arrival I still never received a print about my reservation. The hotel is advertised as "updated", that is a joke. On my last night, I walker in the room and found a roach right at my door. I called the front desk and she asked me if I wanted to move rooms or if I wanted someone to come and spray. I requested someone to come and spray, I never seen or heard anyone. I am thankful I was able to get this hotel at the last minute for cheap price because of one of my memberships, but it was not worth the headache and stress. I had to wash and shake out everything I brought with me to make sure I did not bring home any roaches to my home. As a RN, I am very surprised that an establishment would be so nonchalant and rodents roaming there business as their customers attempt to enjoy the beautiful scenery. This hotel does not deserve be on that strip of the Sunny Isles.

One of the last standing

The Thunderbird may be looking a little tired, but there is life in the place yet. I am sure it is only a matter of time until this building goes the same way as the other old hotels on this strip (Chateau by the sea as an example).We have holidayed on this strip for 25 years now and these old hotels have the old style friendly family atmosphere.Our room was good and clean on arrival. The staff are helpful and friendly.We will visit again, as long as this building stands on Collins Avenue.The pool bar is good, lady at the bar friendly and helpful.The montreal BBQ restaurant is supposed to be excellen, we only had breakfast which was good. Again the staff are great.
