“Attention to detail...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Stayed here for four nights in June 2013. The first room I was assigned had no functioning wired internet access (do NOT use wireless access if you can avoid it!). The manager, Mr. Rick Funke, bent over backwards to get me into a room with wired internet within just a few hours. His and the staff's continued attention throughout my stay was most welcome and helpful. I can't say enough about how they made my stay more comfortable. And the breakfast buffet was excellent, especially the waffles! The manager's dinner reception was also quite good. The hotel location is convenient, near the airport, yet quite quiet as it's located on a man-made lagoon. Pleasant. All in all a fine property and outstanding staff.

I don't like to go on vacation because I love my clean and orderly house. Well I am so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The staff has been amazing. From I think the mans name was Michael at the front desk to the poor guy that brought linens to the room 3 times I don't know his name but he was from Jacksonville. The room is clean, which is my main concern. The location was easy to find and close to our family in Miami. We will definitely be back.

This is not a glamor property but the staff will make you feel like royalty. Every request and concern was cared for immediately. The fish and turtles in the back yard were a real hit with the kids. The airport noise was not an issue. The shuttle service was spot on.

We are two thirds of our way through a world trip. The Homewood Suites Miami-Airport/ Blue Lagoon Hotel has been one of our best hotel experiences. Very well appointed and clean rooms, excellent front-office staff, generous breakfast, free internet, regular airport shuttle and close to a shopping centre. We received two calls to our room asking if everything was OK. if only New York hotels could learn from this standard of service.
AC is a little noisy but there's also an overhead fan in the bedroom.
The hotel is ideal for a stopover where you can drop off your bags, get a five minute shuttle to the airport and then catch the express bus to Miami beach all for less than $5 return and about half an hour each way.
This hotel meets all of our expectations and we strongly recommend it to anyone looking for comfort and convenience at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Ask for a 7th floor suite overlooking the lagoon

Part of a chain group that understands the hospitality industry, I've found that the needs of my family have been met, the situations have been resolved with practicality.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom (KING) with sofa bed non smoking-

Excellent rest, pillows, mattress, bedding, so comfortable.
Excellent cleaning.
Unbeatable location.
It offers free breakfast and free airport shuttle. Breakfast could be more varied.
It has business center and gym but we haven't used them.
Full kitchen with dishwasher, neatly organized. There isn't oven.
Excellent Wi-Fi. LCD in the living room and the bedroom.

It would be better the pool could be more connected to the hotel building.
Surely come back.

Room Tip: Rooms with lake views are beautiful

I stayed here for one night. The hotel is a solid choice. I like that they have free parking and a good breakfast. It is a good ways from Miami Beach and downtown Miami. It is very conveniently located to the Miami Airport.

This was my first time staying at a Homewood Suites, and I definitely recommend this particular hotel! The only hiccup during our stay was with our first room. When we arrived our room was ready and they had already prepared our key cards. However, when we got to the room the bed was not made and there were towels on the floor. The rest of the room was clean and ready, it just seems the housekeeper went on break before they finished the room. I went downstairs to ask the front desk staff to finish the turnover, however they apologized profusely and assigned us another room.

Both of the rooms were on the higher floors (my preference), and they were modern and new. The king bed was extremely comfortable, to the point I didn't want to get up! The A/C's are nice and cold, as is the refrigerator. The sofa did not convert to a sleeper, but it was comfortable enough to lounge on for a while. The pool and pool area are small, but adequate for the price. We went down twice during our stay and both times no one else was down there. The tv channels are your standard hotel fair, and the wifi is fast.

The breakfast wasn't bad, but there wasn't a huge variety of items. Eggs, sausages, bagels, toast, cereal, and that's about it. We had the complimentary dinner one night, and it was surprisingly good. The dinner that evening was an assortment of pastas, salad, as well as free beer and wine. The coffee and tea is available 24/7 and was never burnt or bitter, no matter the time of day.

The location of the hotel had me worried due to the proximity to the airport. Our room faced the lake, and I was amazed as how quiet it was! Not only did we never hear any planes if we were indoors, but we never heard any of our neighbors either. The location is also convenient to Coral Gables, the highway to get to the beaches, as well as the shopping centers nearby (Publix, Gas, etc)

Overall, the service and quality received for the price make it a great deal! Definitely will be back!

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher floors are newer and more modern
