“Convenient for a night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We (couple and child) stayed at La Quinta Miami Airport East for one night after arriving on a late flight. The hotel fulfilled its purpose: a decent place to stay close by.

The downside of proximity to the airport is proximity to planes, and the best soundproofing cannot shield you from them. However that runway is not in constant use, so the noise was bearable.

The staff was courteous. The room was not luxurious by any means (it had the smell of cheap hotels), but adequate. The beds were good.

The breakfast room is much too small for a hotel this size, and there was a scramble for the buffet and seats, especially with service ending at 9am. On the whole, though, if you want a place to crash out after a flight, this is OK.

Flew in for one night to go to a Marlins/Phillies game, it was a rainy day and we arrived early (8am) rooms were not available (which was to be expected that early) The front desk was extremely polite and placed our name on a list for early check in and we watched Tv in the lobby. The weather was pretty yucky outside so we opted to stay close especially with the game being that night. Walked to the only restaurant (Bennigans) and it was just old and okay. At 1230 we walked back to the hotel and were able to check in. Room was huge, king size bed, chair, sofa pullout, it was perfect for us to relax in before the game! This place was perfect for what we needed, the price was great we took a cab to and from the game (2 of us 25 each way including tip) and the next morning took the shuttle back to the airport for an early flight home, perfect for the price and what we needed!

Free airport shuttle (not fast), very close to the airport. Staff were extremely helpful. On three separate occasions with different staff. I was impressed. Price can't be beat so don't expect luxuries. It's quick, clean and then we moved on.

We stayed at this hotel overnight between arriving by plane and leaving the next morning on a cruise. For what we wanted, a clean room and bed for an overnight, and at a reasonable price, this hotel fit the bill.

It was quite close to the airport and the shuttle to and from runs every 30 minutes, so was quite convenient going both ways. The hotel is a bit long on the tooth. It was clean enough and the room was supplied with the appropriate items, but little things like the bath tub wouldn't drain were an annoyance. The hotel is supposed to include a breakfast, but they close it down at 9:00 am, a bit early if you don't have to get up and leave until late in the morning. (We were ten minutes late and it was already closed.) The hotel has no restaurant but there is a pub/restaurant at the front of the property next door. It was good if you simply wanted food (which we did). I suppose if you wanted to dine out, you've be disappointed.

We'd stay again for the price.

We spent the night there before going on a cruise out of Miami. The room was clean and could barely hear the planes. The breakfast was simple and adequate. We ordered dinner from a locally and it was deliverd to our room. The free shuttle service from the airport and to the port was convenient.

Too grandkids on a spring break cruise. Great stop over. Provided free airport AND port shuttle service and continental breakfast at a very reasonable price. Clean, comfortable and nice pool for kids to get some travel energy out. While outdoors the landing planes are deafening but (duh) it is next to the airport.

It was clean, close to the airport, packed with people going on cruises. Breakfast left a lot to be desired, but free shuttle to and from the port or airport. Close to any Walmart but traffic is Miami traffic! Not fenced in if your leaving your car but does have security.

Room Tip: If you want to see the planes, which fly directly by get a room at the front of the hotel.
