Can't understand all the complaints about this hotel. It is a basic, budget hotel. Don't expect luxury, but it is a basic, good, clean place to shower and sleep. If that's all you want, as we did while waiting to fly out to Peru, then this place is fine. I wouldn't want to spend a week's vacation here, but as... More

We had to deliver our rental car at Dollar and after that fly from Miami Airport. This LQ-motel was closeby and had a very reasonable price ($95). It was also close to the rental-car-returns (8 minutes walk). That was the main reasons for us to book this hotel. In other reviews people are making remarks on the noise (staff, planes),... More

I picked this hotel because they offered a free shuttle to the Port of Miami and to/from MIA. I was told by the hotel staff that there was a restaurant within walking distance. When we arrived (I was traveling with a group of 8) we found a restaurant that was boarded up and was in the process of being demolished.... More

We were flying out the next day and the La Quinta Miami Airport East is just good enough for that and nothing more. On our way back through Miami, we found another option at the same price that blows this place out of the water. The beds are ok and unless you don’t mind waking up a couple of times... More

We stayed here one night pre-cruise. This is a low budget hotel, don't expect more. Room basic, basic no toiltrees. Carpet worn and stained in places. When I entered the room I thought, please just let it be clean. When I entered the bathroom, I saw hairs in the tub. Thank goodness we only stayed one night, otherwise I would... More

The hotel was ok. Nothing more. The service was adequate, but the location was not good at all. There were several other hotels that would have been just as close with better room. I would not stay here again.

I had read other reviews about the great shuttle to and from the airport. We only needed it from the airport, and called upon our arrival in Miami. We were told to just stand outside by departures and the shuttle would be by. We asked about a specific place and they said just outside anywhere by departures. So we stood... More

The hotel runs a huge promotion saying "if you can't give us a 10, then let us know".....well, this place isn't a 10....but it is clean, affordable, and has free shuttle to the airport. I will say the front desk people were generally very helpful and friendly. We did have some minor problems with the room that need to be... More

My husband and 2 boys stayed here the night before our cruise and it was perfect. They picked us up at the airport and took us to the port in the morning. The pool was adequate. The only downside was there was only one restaurant within walking distnace of the hotel, Bennigan's, so we had pizza delivered for lunch and... More
