“Great for Pre-cruise stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We stayed at this motel the night before our cruise. While it is nothing fancy, it was clean, the beds were comfortable and the free shuttle to the Port of Miami can't be beat! The staff was helpful and friendly, and the noise from planes taking off was not a bother to us while we were in the room. All in all, it suited our needs well.

Stayed here before and after cruise and it is close and convenient to port of Miami. Shuttle to port is free but you need to arange with KSA for return at $10 pr person. The cost is better than some hotels. Pool was not heated and cold but enjoyed sun. Lots of airplanes overhead so its quite noisy. Rooms looked old and in need of freshening up compared to other La Quinta's we've stayed at. On web site, it says its 1 mile to Dennys, BK and Pollo Tropical but you can't walk there as you have to cross major expressway. Only restaurant close by is Bennigans next door and its overpriced for what you get. I got fish and rice and it was so bland and tasteless. Burgers & chips cost $9. On return from cruise, we were able to get pool towels and there is a bathroom close by to change in til room was made up. I would only stay here if going on a cruise.

Room Tip: Ask for room on first floor as its not as noisy as upper floors from air traffic overhead.

We did a layover here - it's super-close to the airport (and therefore has planes taking off overhead, which can be a bit noisy). The shuttle is quick, the rooms clean and comfortable. There's a restaurant next door with food and beer - it does the trick.

Stayed one night because I had to. Little compensation for the money spent. Bugs in the bathroom and in carpets; place is terribly LOUD, like sleeping in the middle of the runway; Internet connection not fully working; nothing fresh for breakfast and gernally limited choice; low quality paper and plastic tableware; maybe better acceptable if cheaper, but not for $200 a night

Horrible experience! Carpet and furniture full of stains, but the worst were the bugs in the carpet and bathroom. Not a pleasant stay, we couldn't sleep. We booked in this hotel because of the good reviews but what happened people, do you have an clue about cleanliness?...If you have the opportunity to stay in another hotel please do not hesitate, La Quinta has been my worst experience.

Book early for best rate. Lots of cruise people stay here for (free) port shuttle.

Hotel is adequate; bed good with lots of pillows. If the a/c makes lots of noise (like ours did), contact desk right away. Apparently no maintenance on site after 5:00 p.m. Long wait for airport shuttle (45 minutes) in Miami humidity.

Front desk staff was great. Breakfast was good but very simple (toast, bagels, cereal, yogurt). Go early or go later to miss crowds as room is fairly small and very warm.
