Executive Tropic Garden Hotel: A vintage motel with heart shaped tubs and surprisingly well maintained rooms designed in what appears to have been the 80’s. Known for their 3-hour ‘short stay’ option, this place has quite the reputation for being a seedy love motel.
Location: 6925 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33144
Cost: ~$100 for 4 hours
Our Overall Rating: 3/5
This chain is another classic Miami love hotel. We got the Executive Suite at this one and here are the upsides – the room is incredibly spacious with an upstairs area and downstairs area. I loved the disco lights, “the chair”, and the heart tub surrounded by mirrors and columns. It’s a room with a lot of potential!! It’s also a little grimy and half-assed, but that’s a miami love hotel for ya.
Cleanliness Rating: 2/5
Ok once we gave it a wipe down but personally speaking, 4 hours was plenty to enjoy it then head to the Hilton. (Just kidding, we stayed at a Best Western).
Favorite Room: I liked the Executive Suite for the heart tub in the columns!
Booking Info: Show up and see what’s available! Can be a little annoying but get there earlier in the afternoon and you have more luck.
