“Nice airport hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This was a pretty nice place for an airport hotel. It's right across the street from the airport, which usually means a pretty worn out, beat up property. But this hotel was pretty good all around. The floors could use a good steam cleaning or it would get an excellent. The staff was great and helpful. They saw we were tired and traveling with 3 kids and upgraded us to a larger room for free! Nice touch! Breakfast was free and quite good for a hotel breakfast. I've never been disappointed with Homewood yet. After a recent stay at another chain, I realize that they really value their customers and go out of their way for their guests!

If you have a problem with this hotel, I suggest you request to speak with Rick Funke, the general manager. We stayed here the night before our cruise and left our car parked on the property. We had an issue that could have put a damper on our return from our wonderful family trip. Instead, Mr. Funke went above and beyond to make it right. Service like this is what should be the priority of all "service industries", but seldom is. Bravo to Mr. Funke & his staff. Would stay here again.

I love that this hotel has a separate room with a door so that when I put my child to bed, I can still be up and not disturb her rest. The value is increased due to the managers reception Monday through Thursday because we save the cost of dinner for our family of 3 and add with that the com breakfast and we are really only paying half of the cost of the hotel and the rest is meal money. It has been a wonderful find for my family and we tell everyone we meet about our experience. We will only stay at homewood suites!! We love the duck!!

Hotel provides all necessary amenities for stay in proximity of Blue Lagoon businesses. Everything is as you'd expect it from a Hilton brand hotel: Clean rooms, comforatble beds, well equipped rooms, reliable WiFi. Great value for money.

The choice of red wine without adding cranberry juice to it was too tart, besides a slip of the salt box everything else was satisfactory. Rick the manager was on the scene tending to the guests needs daily. I highly recommend this establishment

I first stayed at this hotel in 2006 when my family and I travelled to Miami for my daughters graduation and have stayed there since. Sometimes between 2 - 5 times per year. We hear a lot about a home away from home, but this establishment fits that phrase perfectly. The suites are spacious, comfortable and well maintained. The staff is friendly and it is perfectly located for when I travel on business. I would and have recommended this to many persons travelling in the Miami area.

We booked this hotel a couple of days before a cruise because it could accommodate a family of 6 (3 are teens and grandma). We got a 2 bedroom/2 bath suite and also included is a hot full breakfast and dinner (with wine or beer) Monday thru Thurs. The dinners were great, even the kids (one is very picky) liked the choices. Great price for 2bedroom vs. getting 2 rooms somewhere else, plus the free meals were worth it too. Two of our family came in the next day so the free shuttle to the airport was great. The hotel is only about 20min. to cruise ports/Miami beach. The staff was also great, even the shuttle drivers -all were very polite and helpful.

Cons-a few things could use some remodeling, like the kitchen, bathrooms and the pool area. The kitchen is small, which we expected, but the stove top (no oven-so don't buy pizzas) didn't really work, we could only get one burner to work and it would go off on its own. The microwave took about twice the needed time. The pool was the biggest disappointment, my kids really wanted to go swimming but the color and smell of the pool was a turn off at first sight (also very very small pool). This hotel sits on a lagoon but the amount of trash people throw into it is very sad. A lot of it is along the shore behind the hotel.
We only wanted to rent a car the last day, so we took the free shuttle back to the airport/rental car area and got a great 24hr car rental with Avis (a ford explorer that accommodated all of us and all our bags for the cruise) for $28.00. We usually book w/Avis for this reason-if you are a preferred member (wizard number) you can usually get free upgrades to suv from the intermediate rate. Or you can get a coupon/promo code off the internet. Then ask them to put in remarks of your reservation for a 6 seat passenger car. Sometimes this upgrade is based on availability when you arrive, but we have always gotten the larger SUV (even at 3 different islands in Hawaii). We were able to go to Miami beach and spend the day, went to the grocery store, and the next day we dropped off everyone and the bags at the port. My husband then returned the car to the airport and got the $24.00 taxi ride back to the port-which we were just getting to the front of the cruise check in line, so he just came to the front with us. So for about 65.00 (including gas) we were able to do all this, rather than spend about 150.00 for taxi's.

Another tip for cruises (if you are arriving a day or more before the cruise), buy your soda and liquor bottles when you get to Miami and put them in your CHECKED bags. Some cruises allow you to take one bottle of wine per person in your carry on. They took Grandmas half bottle of coconut rum becuz she forgot and left it in her carry on. We can remember cruises when they included everything-like drinks, now they want to charge you for all of it and if you buy any bottles of liquor on the ship or in port they keep it til then end of your cruise. So here is my tip for getting around this. Take a really large EMPTY water bottle into port and buy your liquor and pour it into the water bottle to take back on the ship. If your buying a dark liquor then use a coke or Dr. pepper bottle. We also take bottles of water for each person into each port, as you never know where, when or how much they are on the islands. My teens would even take an extra fruit and the mini cereal boxes from breakfast for quick snacks on the islands, to tide them over til they got back on board to eat. Yes, we are cheap and this is what we do.

Room Tip: If you have 5 or more get the 2 bedroom suite-its only about 20.00 more a night and is worth the ext...
