Really good game..shame it doesn't work...

Played for months. Can't proceed last the lower level of house.time availability way too limited. Now the game crashes every 2 minutes.pity I enjoyed it as a bored, disabled person. But I cannot spend any more money in a game that will not work more than 2 or 3 minute s

Good clean and exciting fun!

This is a really fun game that has just the right amount of challenge for ages 8 age up. The graphics are vibrant and just the right size. There is an interesting storyline to follow as you make improvements to the hotel and if you want to play completely free that's ok too - you will have to wait for the energy level to build back up. There are options to purchase time and extras but that's not required in order to play. I highly recommend this game to anyone who can follow a basic storyline and is up for a good time!

Though fairly typical, this found-object puzzle game/hotel restoration simulator is still reasonably challenging and fun. In Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery, you've inherited your grandfather's old hotel, which is in need of a good cleaning and some new furniture. But instead of getting a loan or hiring a cleaning crew, you do it all yourself by looking for specific objects in pictures that are full of all sorts of items. The faster you find them, the better your score. Plus, once you do, you can get your assistant to clean up parts of the hotel or you can choose what kind of fireplace to install.

Now, as hidden-object puzzle games go, this is pretty typical, and it doesn't add anything to the formula. But then, the formula still works, which is why this is still challenging. You wouldn't think so, but it can be tricky finding your keys in a picture full of pipes, brooms, cell phones, and other stuff Grandpa left lying around. Which is why, despite not bringing anything new to the table, Hidden Hotel: Miami Mystery is still more fun than booking a hotel room online.
