“Great experience for this tier of hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I can't say enough good things about the friendly, helpful staff at this hotel. The front desk manager at checkin was easily the most helpful, knowledgable professional I have met at a hotel, even when compared to hotels several tiers higher. Whatever they're doing to keep employees happy at this property, they're doing it right! Overall, the hotel was cleaner and more modern than I expected. Despite being an airport hotel and removed from the downtown and beach scenes, it has a distinct Miami vibe and tidy, pseudo-art-deco decor. It also has a complimentary airport shuttle and has contracted with the nearby Dolphin Mall to provide shuttle service to the mall for a small (reasonable) fee. Our room had a medium-sized (5-inch diameter) patch of mold growing in the bath tub. Clearly, that should NOT have been there. My travel friend says he saw a cockroach in the bathroom, too, but I did not see it and, as a Floridian myself, very much understand that those are just a fact of life in the Sunshine State. The mold is something I can fault the hotel on... the cockroach, if it exists, is not. There were no bugs apparent at the complimentary breakfast, thankfully, but more than enough tourists. The breakfast area was very crowded, but we never had a problem finding seating and they didn't run out of anything while we were there. The selection was a little skimpy, even when compared to other La Quintas, but almost everything offered was fresh and--except for the requisite make-it-yourself waffles--on the lighter/healthier side (a BIG plus). La Quinta is one of the few Miami-area hotels that offers free parking, another huge plus. Just don't park under the decorative trees separating this hotel from the nearby Embassy Suites, or you'll want to get a car wash before heading downtown or to South Beach. The rack rate for our stay was $189 per night--I probably would have been dissatisfied at this price. We had some vouchers that made the stay significantly cheaper, though, and the property exceeded my expectations for the price we paid. Overall, we had a very positive experience.

This is an acceptable airport hotel...nothing more. There is a shuttle service that runs every half hour to/from the airport. Unfortunately there's no restaurants or bars nearby. Pizza can be delivered to you room.

Decor is pleasant but focus on important details are poor. Needs better mattress, breakfast variety is better at Best Western. Lighting is dim and air conditioning noisy and mysterious function. Doors to rooms slam with load clatter. Aircraft make an excellent 5am wake up call

Very nice place to stay. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast served up daily. Very close to the airport. They provide free shuttle service to and from the airport as well as to the cruise terminal.

This hotel has terrible customer service as well as the cancelation policy. If you book after 6 pm they tell you that you have to cancel before 6 pm. So it makes no sense and after you call them they have nothing nice to say.

We couldn't stay there because we found out that we could check in to go to NYC waiting on stand by. After that I called to cancel but they wouldn't do that. The rep. Would repeat the same thing like a robot "you had to cancel before 6 pm" so told her I made a reservation after 7 pm. I get to New York and check my account to see that they did charge me, but I haven't even been there at all.

I stayed with the kind folks at LaQuita Airport East one night in December and then again returning from my trip on January 10. There are lots of negative comments about this place made in the past, but it seems that the renovation was successful and the hotel was just fine. Front desk staff, especially Marcel, were extremely helpful. There is a now a free breakfast which was good (even hard boiled eggs and lots of fruit.) Breakfast starts at 7 am on weekends, which was unfortunate for me on the way back as I was catching an early flight; this might be something to improve. All best wishes.
