“Suited for a short stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Well located at approx. 15 min. driving time from the airport and easy to find. Perfect for a first stop if you visit Miami for the first time.

If you plan to stay more than 2 nights you should before think twice. Some work refresh in the room wouldn't be luxury. The style is old : furnitures, tv... are here for a too long time. The room is noisy and you can't really relax as you ear all the coming and going on the floor.

There are also good points as prices are affordable, the air conditioning is efficient, the bathroom is decent and the breakfast is good.

This place is more a commodity than a decent place to have a nice time and enjoy the sun of Miami.

The place is not so bad, but average. It just depends what you are really looking for.

We arrived at the airport with the excited promise of a free shuttle being advertised. We waited for awhile without seeing it, then called the hotel to check. She said he would be there in 10-15 mins. After 20 mins I called back and got the same answer again. We went through this yet a third time before he finally showed up. We had waited an hour while watching every other hotel shuttle pass several times.

This hotel including Miami airport in their name is completely deceiving since it took us 20 mins to drive to the hotel. By now we are very late for our schedule.

Hotel grounds were dirty, the elevator indicator lights didn't work. Front staff were inattentive and short with us. The restaurant staff were nice but took forever. The rooms were very outdated and smelled.

Would NOT recommend. It did not match up to its star rating.

Stayed at this hotel not because of choice but because of booking done for me. The end of week stay seemed to be pricey and was no comparable to the quality of room provided. I also experience a mid week stay on my return and the room provided was more at par in terms of price. The location was excellent as a 5 minute walk can be done to the nearest mall which has decent shopping. Did not interact with staff other than the front desk people who seemed to be pleasant and helpful. Would likely stay at this location again!!

Room Tip: Hotel is located near freeway and some of the noise was still audible.

Just finished another stay at HoJo .I want to give great thanks to the courtesy,customer service and professionalism shown by staff members Massiel and Saira. From the time I made reservations to check-in and thru out our stay over several days their customer service was at the highest degree. Making sure everything was to our satisfaction,in which it was. I want also give thanks to housekeeper Aurelia for keeping our rooms so clean and tidy. Great professionals such as these ladies are the reason my cousins and I return to this property when we are in Miami. Thanks again ladies. Will see you all soon. Jerry,Georgia.

The lobby and pool area have been upgraded and look great. However the carpeted areas are in dire need of upgrades. Our room was in the penthouse and I was expecting better rooms, however it is in dire need of upgrades. Carpet is stained, bathroom grout and shower head is rusted, tub stained. Towels are small and old. Rates were high and expected more from the room - if the upgrades continued from lobby to the rooms I would not mind staying here again - accessible to a lot of things. Would not pay that rate again for the accommodations.
