“La Squinta.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

....Because if you squint, it doesn't look too bad.

This hotel was perfectly serviceable. It was a clean place to sleep before we left for our cruise. They picked us up from the airport for no charge (aside from tipping the driver) and they also took us to the port in the morning. There was also breakfast in the morning, but that was nothing to write home about. We ended up standing for most of it because of inadequate seating combined with the overflow of people getting ready to leave for the port. It seems like bringing out some folding chairs would alleviate some of this.

If you are extremely cost conscious, then this would be a good choice for you. With our AAA discount, we paid around $130 for 2 shuttle rides, room, and breakfast for 4 people. The staff was friendly. I just felt like since we were heading out on an extravagant (for us) vacation, I would have liked to have been in someplace not so shabby.

If you do decided to stay here, I would recommend eating at the airport before you catch the shuttle. The only real option nearby for restaurants is the Embassy Suites restaurant or another on that was NOT recommend by the front desk person.

This is a good hotel to stay and cruise from Miami. The rooms are very clean and the staff are very helpful and friendly. They will take you to the Port free and $10 for a return trip to the hotel or airport.

Did I just pay almost $150 for this hotel? Yep. And it included, at no extra charge: A variety of different hairs from previous guests in the bathroom, a yucky breakfast, an uncomfortable bed and linens, and slow internet. When was the last time you smelled cigarette smoke in the hallways of a hotel? Travel back in time at La Quinta.

We were here, like everyone else, to take the cruise shuttle. Poorly organized, it was a mob scene. Our driver had never been to the terminal before, never addressed any of his passengers, had no idea how to get there, and took multiple u-turns. It took almost an hour and a half.

This is a "turn and burn" hotel, which relies on its free shuttle to attract customers.

A nice hotel very close to the airport. Front desk staff was efficient and helpful. Nice South facing pool area is relaxing when planes aren't flying over, but the proximity to the airport is the cause. Nowhere decent in the area to run if you like running outside, but there is a small fitness room. Microwave and mini fridge available on request as well as weekly rates. Breakfast is LA Quinta standard, waffle maker, hard boiled eggs, bagels and cereal, coffee and tea.

We stayed here since it was free shuttles to the Miami Port. Hotel was nice and had an outdoor swimming pool. The planes pretty much fly over the pool when they land which was kind of cool to see. Hotel was cheap and nice like any of the other LA Quintas I've stayed at. I would stay again if I was cruising from that port.
