Flying to Miami for a BBL, but where should I stay!??!?! Need help from the BBL sisters!

I've been reading so many reviews on brazilian butt lifts on realself.com, it has become some sort of an addiction! Every other day I'll come back to this site and look around - I'm hooked! The desire to have the BBL done is getting bigger and bigger and I have already contacted epsmiami (Dr. Salama) to see if there is any chance for me to have it done.   It's a bit tricky for me to have the procedure done cause I live in Europe . . . This would mean that I have to fly all the way down to Miami (since I want to go to Dr. Salama). I know how much the procedure would cost and I've looked around for cheap flight tickets to Miami and I've found them - it's not all that bad actually. But my BIGGEST concern is where the heck I should be staying when I actually have had the procedure done!!!!    The clinic recommended a list of hotels with different price ranges, but all of them are expensive! I looked around for hotels myself to see if there are any with low rates but no luck whatsoever...   Ruben (practice administrator of EPSmiami) said that patients from out of town usually stay about 9-10 days, but I thought since I'm flying in from Europe it would be good to stay for 14 days - you never know if I'll need extra time to heal and need to see the doctor.  So since I want to stay for 14 days, I need to find a decent place that won't make me go BANKRUPT! The cheapest hotel I found, where I'd stay 14 days, quoted $1,005!!!! What!??!?! That's CRAZY! I can't be paying $5,899 for the procedure, $1000 for the flight ticket (make that $2000 cause I'm bringing mom with me), then an additional $1,005 for the stay at a hotel!! I'd have a rough total of $8900! Let's not forget that there are other expenses such as food, travel and etc etc...   I am in desperate need of help from all my BBL sisters who went to Miami to have the procedure done, where did you guys stay? For how long? And how much did you actually spend on the accommodation?   Do you have any suggestions as to where one could stay for two weeks without blowing a hole in your wallet? I don't need a fancy hotel, I just need a clean room for me and my mom to stay in while I recover...   I appreciate any help that I get! Much luuuuv

I've traveled alone from the UK for my BBL surgery with Dr. Mendieta and I stayed at The Mutiny Hotel for around $150 per night very close to doctors office, clean and nice. My worst experience was the Taxi as each time at the doctor office I waited for more than 2 hours for taxi for to arrive ??? Sometimes it didn't at all !!! Therefore I wish I had known about their affordable concierge service ( I think is called no limit or similar, before my arrival as apparently they offer complete packages including caregiver, huge SUV's for transportation etc., I was able to book their transport only on the day of my surgery and was perfect service, very clean and comfy. However they operate mainly by booking in advance and could not accommodate me for more trips on the short notice. I highly recommend to plan your transportation way in advance as unfortunately Miami's public and Taxi transport are nothing like in other modern cities I know...

Hi, I recommend Haddon Hall Hotel for you to stay. It's one of the cheapest hotels in Miami that offers the best features to make your stay more comfortable and relax. http://www.ninjabooker.com/

If you only need 1 bed I would try this place it has great reviews, location is perfect walking distance to beach, doctors & shopping and restaurants I spoke with the guy who owns the place but I need at least 2 beds and he doesn't offer that. http://www.tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g34296-d3368518-Studio_Apartment_on_the_Beach_Hollywood_Florida-Hollywood_Florida.html Good luck

Hi Culona, I recently had surgery with Dr Mendieta in Miami. I stayed at Marriott Residence Inn Coconut Grove. The hotel is very clean nice decor, Safe which is the most important, also 2 minutes driving distance from my doctor. I thought is was affordable, for 10 nights it was approximately $800 inclusive of taxes and parking fees. The also include a daily continental breackfast which was great with many options of food, I never go bored with the choices. I have pictures of the room on my profile discussing my surgery and recovery. I'm excited for you and good luck with everything.

Seree, that is an awesome price! What was your room like? I lived in a residence inn for 9 months for a job years ago. So I have stayed in a variety of the rooms they offer. I am thinking it is better to have 2 beds if someone is with you...as I am sure that if that other person moves in bed and you aren't feeling well at night that it would bother you. anyone else know?

Hi Culona if you r anything like me you may be interested in where I'm staying now. I am in Pompano Beach in Shore Terrace. It is a small complex of motels. I have a efficiency (so I have a kitchenette) and I'm paying 680.00 for two weeks. Now, this is by no means a Marriott but I refuse to spend an unnecessary amount of money. Plus , I can walk right across the street to the beach :)
If you would like me to take pics and email them to you, I can.

I agree with deedawnta .I dont think your goin to get cheaper than 70$ a night.you might want to look into sharing a condo/ rental with someone going down at the same time.

Hello, the best advice I can think of is to get one of your girlfriends to go with you, and have her share the expense of the room or find another woman on here that would be willing to split the cost
