Stay in Miami for Less at Motel Blu

What’s a Motel Blu Room Include?

Motel Blu offers 48 newly renovated rooms, each outfitted with brightly colored linens and bold Art Deco carpets. After a busy day of sightseeing, unwind with free high-speed WiFi and cable TV in all rooms. Black-out drapes help you ensure you get a peaceful night’s sleep.

Standard rooms should suit solo travelers and couples, while double rooms give families a little extra space to spread out. Efficiency rooms have a separate kitchenette area, which features a microwave oven, refrigerator, and sink. While the kitchenette isn’t as well-appointed as those in more lush Miami hotels, it’ll allow you to prepare basic snacks or meals.

What Amenities are Available?

Motel Blu offers more amenities than many two-star establishments. Guests can lounge in wooden chairs around the pool or take a dip to beat the heat. You needn’t bring your own beach towel as the hotel provides these for guests.

A range of restaurants are conveniently located within a half mile of Motel Blu, but if you’d prefer to eat in try the New Orleans-inspired cuisine at the on-site Red Light Restaurant. Cakes are available in the lobby at breakfast time, where coffee is free at any time of the day or night. 

Motel Blu offers free secured parking, but if you’d prefer to leave the car behind you can use the hotel’s shuttle service to and from the airport or cruise terminal.

What are the Rates Like?

As a two-star establishment, Motel Blu offers rooms that are much cheaper than most in the Miami area. Your dollar will go further if you book a standard room.

Can I Bring My Dog to the Motel Blu?

Motel Blu allows pets in specific rooms, but you must arrange it at the time of booking. A pet surcharge of $10 a day per pet applies.

What’s the Bottom Line?

Motel Blu’s far from the swankiest hotel in Miami, but it represents great value. The swimming pool, on-site restaurant, excellent location, and other guest perks make it worth putting up with the dated décor.

Lonely Planet
Situated above Miami's Little River, the Blu may not look like much from the outside, but inside you'll find freshly-done-up rooms with a host of modern amenities. Rooms are comfortable...
Time Out
Capitalising on the slow gentrification of Biscayne, the revamped Motel Blu has christened itself the strip's first boutique motel. That's a bit of a stretch - Schrager and Starck it...
