My wife got us a room in the Runway Inn just for one night as we were leaving for a cruise out of Miami the next day. This was one of the worst places I have ever stayed. The bed was uncomfortable, the service at the front desk was awful, the food at the breakfast the next day was gross,... More

The only saving grace for this place is the proximity to the airport. The decor is outdated and in quite desperate need of renovation. The air conditioning is noisy. The morning after, upon arrival at the airport the driver of the free airport shuttle tried to pull my suitcase from under a pile of other suitcases and broke the handle.... More

We stayed one night before a cruise. We booked here because of lower price and free shuttle to port. I didn't sleep well due to air traffic noise and you could hear other travelers walking above and in the hallways. The hotel seems outdated - the pictures make it look better than it is. But, for one night stay, it... More

If price is your only holdup, and you don't care to have a good sleep or a nicer hotel/bed/etc, then stay here. given that it borders airport property, it has a free shuttle available to and from the airport itself. it also has a shuttle to the cruise port, but that one is tougher to get. they seem to have...

Stayed there the night before a cruise to take advantage of the park and cruise deal. The area was kind of sketchy but my car was fine for the week. It was further from the port than I thought it would be. The lobby was nice but the hallways and rooms were in need of repairs and updates. The water... More

I would never recommend this place. Not only did I not get any sleep because of how noisy the halls are, every time my husband and I turned on the lights they flickered. The place was just filthy, to even take a shower I put towels down so I didn't have to touch the tile. If I knew the area... More

Best things: Free shuttle from airport and to the cruise port and desk person was nice. Also, price was nice. That is about it. Room needed some love. It smelled heavily of cleaner (Very Strong). The walls were really thin. There was loud noises all night. Neighbors were fighting and hitting the wall which caused our bed to shake. Room... More

By all standards, the place isn't very fancy, but it's convenient to MIA, the rooms are tiny but well lit, in relatively decent repair. Could use a few more accessible outlets. Free wifi requires no password. No business center, but have an arrangement with Days Inn around the corner to use theirs. They're trying. One nice little touch was the... More

We stayed at the Runway Inn for 1 night prior to a cruise departing on 2/14. I chose this place based on a USA Today article that said it was a MIA airport hotel with both an airport shuttle and a cruise shuttle. I also looked at the TA reviews which were mixed but realized most who gave the place... More
