4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Flew into Miami on a Friday and sailed on a cruise Saturday. We needed a hotel for a one night stay. This place fit the bill. Convenient to the airport, they provide free shuttle service to/from the airport and the cruise terminal. Free continental breakfast was pretty standard. Room was pleasant and comfortable. We were frazzled after our flight and this place was great for de-stressing. there isn't much in the way of food/dining nearby, but many local restaurants will deliver. We wound up ordering from room service, which is contracted out to a local Cuban restaurant.

We needed a place to stay in Miami for a night before we sailed on a cruise and decided to stay at La Quinta Airport East. The whole experience worked out very well for us. The hotel is next to the airport, but also only 15 minutes or so to get to Port of Miami. (If peace and quiet is important keep in mind there is airport noise, but it didn't bother us at all.)

They offer a free shuttle to the Port but you'll need to arrange your own transportation back. The shuttle service offers purchase of return trips for $10 per person, and we were able to book that ahead of time right in the hotel lobby. (If you only need the airport I believe they offer free shuttle both ways.) They also offer free parking for up to a week while you cruise. That was perfect for us because the cost of the room was less than the cost for parking at the pier for 5 nights, we got a clean comfortable room, a good night's sleep, and free breakfast!

The customer service was great! Every staff person we talked to was friendly and helpful. Check in and checkout was a breeze.

We had a problem with the shuttle service (which is NOT run by the hotel), but the desk person at La Quinta went the "extra mile" and helped us. We had gotten stranded at the cruise port because the shuttle service had a mix-up and never sent a shuttle to meet us as scheduled. The phone person at the shuttle service seemed confused. So I called the hotel to see if they could help. The desk front desk person called the shuttle service, got the owner on the phone, and shortly thereafter a shuttle arrived to pick us up.

Reviews are all relative to needs and expectations, and for us it was perfect and 5 stars. We will definitely stay there again when we plan our next cruise out of Miami.

If you have different needs such as a quiet place to stay for a family vacation be aware it is a busy, noisy location. In that case just find a different La Quinta!

This was our second time at this hotel before our cruise out of Miami. They allow you to leave your car at the hotel for the entire length of your cruise. Free shuttle to port or Miami. Cost of hotel was same price as leaving the car at the port. Well worth it to drive down the day before.
