Positive Reviews

Really accommodating staff

There have been a number of occasions where guests have had nowhere to go, other than to check in. The staff at the Room Mate Lord Balfour have been overly accommodating in this respect by allowing guests an early check-in, instead of having to sit around waiting for the time to pass.

Stunning location

If the beach is what you are looking forward to on your vacation, then this location will be the best fit for you. Located right across the street from the pristine beaches of the Miami coast, you can spend your entire vacation relaxing on the golden sand.

Great added extras

If you enjoy being spoilt, then the plush bathrobes and slippers that are offered will certainly make you feel very special. Guests are made to feel even more comfortable with the added conveniences like the infused tea on offer in the lobby.

Negative Reviews

Limited vegetarian choices

Those guests who prefer to have breakfast at the hotel before embarking on a day of leisure or travel will enjoy the hearty breakfast on offer, however those who prefer the vegetarian option will find themselves limited for choice. Luckily there are many nearby restaurants who offer the vegetarian option.

Noisy corridoors

Some guests complained that there are often children running up and down the corridors making a bit of a noise. Later at night it's the adults returning from a night on the town that might be a bit loud. Regardless most guests enjoyed their overall stay at the Room Mate Lord Balfour.

No on-site restaurant

Unfortunately for those visitors who enjoy an on-site meal, there is no restaurant at this hotel. Luckily, however there are so many different restaurants within easy walking distance to choose from.
