“Pre-cruise rip-off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Hotel is rather run down. Breakfast was very salty scrambled eggs and very greasy sausage cereal packaged danish juice coffee. Breakfast room very small. Don't bother eating here - go next door to mcdonalds. Room was ok and clean. For almost $200 for one night we expected much better. Add $8 per person for a shuttle to the port. Good grocery store next door.

There were 2 issues with the room.

1) Very bad stink/smell/odor in the rooms, felt like the carpets were not cleaned properly and dried thereafter.
2) The bathroom tub was collecting water and draining was extremely slow. Had to wait 15-20 min before you could take a bath.

Great hotel close to airport and cruiseport. Chose this hotel over other nearby Best Western we have stayed at previously because your airport shuttle ran 24 hrs. a day and our flight was scheduled to get in at midnight (then delayed 2 hrs.)

Found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Very efficient shuttle service, rooms clean and comfortable.

We stay in many Best Westerns each year and found your hotel to be a "find".

Everything was just about perfect, very friendly staff, shuttle bus from the airport was perfect! Shuttle bus to the cruise port, although contracted out, was not reliable. This is not the fault of the hotel.

Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable stay, as always, at Best Western.

We got an amazing price on a room right through the Best Western website. Somethind ridiculously cheap, like $59.99. Figured I was going to get what I paid for, but we got much more.

Shuttle service from the airport was fast and the driver was very courteous. The hotel is located alongside a busy highway, but our room faced the back and was nice and quiet. Bed was VERY comfy and the sanitary remote control cover was a nice touch. Room was clean, big bathroom. Very good complimentary breakfast. The pool area out back was big enough, and clean. Lots of smokers out there though, would be nice if it was smoke free.

There are several restaurants within walking distance, although you have to cross a busy off ramp from the highway and walk under the highway. There's a large plaza on the other side of the highway as well, with an Old Navy, K-Mart, etc. Good for some last minute pre-cruise shopping. There's several fast food places as well. When walking back to the hotel from that area, be sure to cross the main street BEFORE the highway, or else you're stuck without a crosswalk and have to make it across a very busy street.

Check-in and check-out were simple. We were picked up by SAS Transportation for the ride down to Miami.

Room Tip: Our room faced the back and we did not hear any traffic.

We stayed here for 1 night before our cruise from Miami. The hotel has a free airport shuttle, which was nice, but takes a little while as it stops at some other hotels as well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, but nothing fancy. It was good enough for one night before our cruise. Also, it was convenient for us that SAS Transportation picked us up there to take us to the Port of Miami. The free breakfast wasnt that good, but there are a couple of restaurants nearby, as well as a Winn Dixie, which was good for picking up snacks, etc. for our cruise. It wasn't much, but a decent place to stay for the night. Would return again.
