We were thrilled to be upgraded to a penthouse floor room for our two night stay, February 2-4, 2013. Our nicely furnished, clean room had a small balcony, king-sized bed, small table and chairs mini-fridge,coffee maker and supplies and free wifi. Safe did not work and we had to call front desk to get it opened, but besides that small problem everything was wonderful. Our rate included a wonderful full breakfast in the attached restaurant. It was delicious and there was a choice oif three different full breakfasts at the restaurant or just a continental breakfast in the lobby! Our stay included the night of the Superbowl - which we watched comfortably on the set in our room, although we could easily have viewed it on the large screen TV in the comfortable, large lobby downstairs. I even used the small gym down on the first floor which is furnished with three machines (treadmill, bike and a stair-stepper.). Just note that you need to contact the front desk first so that they can give you access to the secured gym. We could not have been more pleased with our stay!

Room Tip: Penthouse floor room was great! Quiet, clean, witha comfortable king-size bed. Breakfast in the atta...

The first thing I noticed was it seemed like the deep-fryer in the restaurant vented onto the 8th floor. The smell wasn't so bad in the room. The second thing was that the noise from the adjacent freeway came through the windows like they were wide open. It being Miami, the noise continued all night (a Thursday) until construction noise from the road improvement took over at about 6AM. The noise was louder than the 2AM party in the hallway. Last they got the reservation wrong and overcharged me about ten bucks. They fixed this after I showed them the reservation confirmation. All-in-all I would have preferred to spend an extra $30 elsewhere.
The good points were that the room was clean and the parking was convenient.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

This hotel was very dirty. The lobby looked decent, but once I got up to the floor my room was on, it was terrible the second the elevator doors opened. The stains on the carpet were terrible and you could tell nothing had been cleaned for a long time! There was a bag of garbage sitting outside a room down the hall from us, and it was stil there the next day. The restaurant did have decent food, but nothing spectacular. I never agree with gratuity being added to a check, especially for a party of 2 sitting at the bar, but there was a 15% gratuity added. The remote for the tv did not work, had to call downstairs multiple times to get a new one. The room itself had a very musty smell to it. Just seemed damp and hot, never really cooled off.

Initially I was excited to make a reservation with Howard Johnson as I have many fond memories of Howard Johnson’s from my childhood as my family travelled the I-95 to Florida. Lesson: avoid nostalgia. Howard Johnson is not the Howard Johnson’s growing up! A week prior to my arrival, I emailed the hotel about shuttle service to the airport. The hotel never replied. The hotel is not even listed amongst hotels at the hotel courtesy desk. As I waited for the shuttle, shuttles from hotels like Sheraton, Holiday Inn Marriot etc had passed by me numerous times. I was told the shuttle arrives hourly, it does not. My flight arrived in Miami at 7:20 and I finally arrived at the hotel three hours later. The shuttle was difficult to identify as the hotel’s name and sign was copied from office paper and taped to the windows. The shuttle was worn and old. The front desk staff were friendly and genuinely concerned. I had requested the manager to call my room in the morning. The manager never called. The hotel like the van is worn and aged. The bed was comfortable and was not disturbed by the noise as earlier guests were. Finally, the hotel calls it an airport hotel, but is a 25 minute drive away. Hmmm.

ottawafella—Thank you for taking the time to post your review of your recent stay at my hotel. I am sorry to learn of your issue with the airport transportation. Since we rented additional vans to accommodate the number of guests this month (that’s why we had temporary signs on the windows), I am embarrassed by your experience. I apologize that neither I, nor a member of my management team called you the next morning. You should have been called and I will look into the matter. I have sent you a private message so that I can determine the date of your stay and how your request for a call was made. I look forward to your response.

Safe travels.
