I just made a quick trip to Miami for some shopping and work and booked this hotel through a combined reservation with car rental through Hotwire (note: you'll really need a ride if you intend to stay here - or pretty much anywhere near the airport). To be close to MIA (about 10 minutes) the location is surprisingly quiet - I've heard lots more of plane noises where I live (also near an airport). You get a reasonably clean room with full kitchenette and a functional bathroom and shower with good water pressure and temperature. I only wished they used the yellow light compact fluorescents rather than the ordinary white ones for room lightning - which can make the room less inviting - but that's my personal preference. There was also a sizable breakfast table that doubles also as working desk. Bed and pillows are on the firm side, but no problem with these either as that's how I prefer them as well.
The real deal though -for me anyways- was having free, reliable wi-fi. As someone who works a lot on the road, I'd rather have wi-fi over many other amenities. However, depending on time of day connection may be wonky or slow and you're offered for-pay "boost" options, otherwise you're stuck with "lite" wi-fi. This "lite" connection however worked for me to Facetime with family back home and for the basics like sending emails and files.
The kitchenette can be a real saver for breakfasts if you are into cooking your own. There's a nearby supermarket nine blocks away (Publix) where you can get everything you may need.
Conclusion: Enjoyed my brief stay there. I could stay there again.
