    My co-worker and I stayed here one night. We chose it for its proximity to South Beach and downtown Miami (10-15min drive).

    Good:

    The staff was incredibly friendly. There is free parking, security, and wireless internet. The courtyard has stylish, new deck furniture set up to encourage chat between travelers. There is a microwave in the courtyard so you can prepare coffee. The room had a mini-fridge, closet with hangers, desk, short table, and chair. The decor in the lobby is very modern and overall the motel is indeed "boutique". The price ($50 for a standard room, 1 queen bed) is hard to beat.

    Needs Improvement:

    Cleanliness: The bathroom counter had small hair clippings on and behind the faucet. The bed sheets and spread were flawlessly clean, however when I lay down, I could smell urine (presumably in the mattress or matress pad). The balcony had cigarette butts scattered about.

    Lighting: Our entire room was lit by two beside lamps with dark lamp shades and the bathroom had one bulb in a wall sconce. We arrived at night and the dim light kept us blissfully unaware of any other cleanliness issues until the next day when we could see by natural light.

    On our way to Miami, we found hotel/travel guides at the highway rest stops. We learned that for $50-60, we could have stayed at a dependably clean chain hotel. But hey, Bianco has a certain chic charm and was decent place for the price.

    This is a very nice, lovely, and inexpensive hotel/motel.  The security is really good.  They open doors and check on the parking lot often.  My boyfriend and I wanted a nice cheap place to stay and sleep.  The only bad thing is once you get there you need to crank up the AC or request to have it turned on before you get there.  It will take up to 4hrs till your room cools since is the old fashion ac.  Also, they only replace towels when asked and wash the same ones right away.  I love the decor of the lobby, rooms, and patio.  The rooms are really cozzy, has a small bathroom and fridge.  The location was great and took only 10 -15 min to get to south beach and ocean drive.  I went on tues night to friday.  Traffic wasn't bad since it was mid week.  I will have to make it back there when I visit Miami again.  The people are very friendly and have great customer service.

    Recently renovated. No frills, old school AC, but it gets the job done at a very reasonable price.

    If you're looking for a cheap motel-ish place to stay, I would definitely recommend bianco.

    DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

    Very unprofessional establishment, would not recommend this Motel to anyone.  Be very careful when reserving a room here.  They try to "Bait and Switch" you to cheaper rooms, and even different location which are even more horrible.  
    I made a reservation two months prior only to receive a very poorly written email full of typo's just days away from my trip telling me I was being moved to their "bother location".  A location I looked up and has nothing but negative reviews.  Because of this change I must now cancel my trip and will likely lose out on my airfare.

    Eh, what do you want for a hotel in miami on Saturday night during tourist season?

    Pluses:
    Easy to get to and easy to park.
    Cheap-ish? ($80 for a double queen room)
    Clean? There are only two towels in the bathroom.
    Mini-frig in the room.
    The tv works.

    Minuses:

    No phone in the room. If you need something, call the lobby. On your cell.

    It's bright outside the rooms on the first floor. I mean floodlight bright.

    Ummmm... No internet in the rooms. There's internet in the lobby, and if you wanted to take your computer to the lobby, connect, and then take it BACK to your room now that it's connected, you could.
    But don't expect to get given that magical password over the phone...

    Thin walls. Hope your neighbors aren't feeling frisky! (Or, uh, paying anyone by the hour?)

    Oh- there's a $10 cash deposit for the room key and the tv remote...?? So.... Yeah. That's a thing.

    But it's a great location, was able to take a walk in on a random Saturday night, and was pretty clean.

    I wish there were 1/2 star options. It's 2 1/2 for sure.

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL! Worst place to stay in Miami. Firstly, it's not in the best of areas, second: the staff is as rude as ever, third: its definitely dirty (sheets and comforters had yellow and brown stains, and trash from previous guests still in room and bathroom) and lastly: no sense of privacy (people could definitely look inside your room at any time with the big gap in the shutters. Not to mention the missing shutter panels in the bathroom window). They say they have free wi-fi, but  the range must be 0 because we were never able to connect to it. Manager is never around, so you're basically royally screwed and stuck there. Just save your time and money and stay somewhere else. Looks nice in pics, but ghetto and ugly as hell.

    This is a five star rating for a MO-tel, where parking is the attraction, room doors face the outside, and it's basic, basic, basic for a cheap price.  The fact that this small roof over your head is called Bianco (better name & translation: white), tells me that anything tawdry is now white-washed.  "Clean" is right up there with "parking" for any amenities you should reasonably expect..

    No, there is no designer soap, hair dryer, nor real water glasses in this newly renovated thimble of a bathroom.  But the new tiles are white, the basins are clean and uncracked, and the windows are recently replaced.  I know.  The manufacturer's sticker with a date was still on the glass.  There's new pergo on the floor, and a wash of white paint over every other surface.  

    Management doesn't want you to stay long, so there is a very shallow closet with several plastic hangars to dissuade you from unpacking.  

    Past guests may have used the rooms to scavenge for their own flea market inventory..  As a consequence, a new visitor must give the desk clerk ten bucks cash to assure return of both the tv remote and the room key at checkout.  Both articles are passed over the counter at check-in, like they do with bowling shoes from the guy before you.   Weird.

    The teeny air-conditioner looks like it was dropped from the back of a pickup in about 1965, hitting the pavement til it ricocheted into an immovable wedge between your room's inside wall and the motel's patched and repatched stucco exterior.  The machine shook and whirred all night, but did it's ancient best to successfully keep the room cool to about 70 degrees.  

    A large wall poster covered one wall.  Its theme was City streets at night, with time lapse traffic streaks on freeways.  Couldnt figure out where it was until I read the small print at the bottom:  "Los Angeles 1989".  LA?  Why not something local?  Hope they got a deal on that poster.  Maybe they did, at the same flea market where they found their remote controls being re-sold for $2 each.

    The interior patio had rugged, plastic weave furniture that is both comfortable and a modern style.  Happily, the $67 room charge included coffee, juices, cereals, bagels, fresh fruit and a selection of not-so-fresh Dunkin Donuts (still in the box).

    The car is right near the room.  The night clerk was also the sentry when I arrived the night before.  When I had to drive through a full south lot to park in the north lot, he followed on foot to be sure I wasn't there for  - - ummm - -  business.  It's that kind of neighborhood.

    But the linens were surprisingly crisp and white, and the king-sized bed was comfy. Bianco's a snug place to meet a traveller's simple needs: Bed/ Fed/  then Headed Down the Highway.

    DO NOT STAY HERE!!

    Price: decent
    Location: semi decent part of town
    Parking: about 10 spaces in front of rooms, everywhere else is behind the building with dim lighting and sketchy people.
    Customer service: below average. Not welcoming, very short worded, no smile at all
    Room: decent sized, looked modern and well kept on FIRST impression
    Amenities: wi-fi only available in the lobby, they hand you the remote for the TV that has been taped together with old scotch tape, 2 styrofoam cups for your drinks. LADIES! Good luck getting ready in the bathroom, there isn't a single outlet in the bathroom. I had to slide the desk chair next to the dresser, and unplug the TV just to plug in my straightener.
    Housekeeping: absolutely ATROCIOUS. I have short, blonde hair, and I found more long black hairs all over the room than I could count. There was a CHUNK of them on the accent pillow, absolutely disgusting. Bath mat in the shower had MOLD on it, along with the inside of the medicine cabinet. The window blinds in the bathroom were missing 2 blinds, there was soap and calcium residue on the soap dishes, there was hard water staining on the shower head, and rust on nearly every single metal service in the room and bathroom(including the bottom of the refrigerator).

    Overall: I wouldn't stay here again, even if you paid me to. I ended up sleeping on my beach towel and jacket because I was too grossed out to even touch the sheets. If my rental car had tinted windows, I would have definitely slept in the car before sleeping in that room.

    The Motel seems to have been renovated recently, the entrance and courtyard look very nice. The rooms are not too spacious, but ok for the price you pay. You'll anyway be there to sleep and relax mostly. No need for a ballroom!

    Staff is okay and the price is decent ($77 per night for a 4 ppl room with 3 ppl occupancy).

    Rooms look old but are very clean.
