“One night pre cruise stay I would rate this as a GOOD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The hotel was in a great location - Bayside centre just across the road plenty of places to eat drink and chill out.

The hotel itself was clean and comfortable staff friendly and helpful. Our bedroom was at the back of the hotel overlooking the pool/car park and metro mover (which gets you around downtown Miami for nothing)

The bed was comfortable , air con worked fine bathroom adequate (small bath) plenty storage space, free safe and wifi in your room. Only one little negative I only drink herbal teas nothing available for me in the morning would I stay there again probably. Taxi from airport was $25 - Taxi to port $15 dont walk its further than you think no pavemnts and its hot

Room Tip: would have said good for a few things but trip advisor does not give this option come on trip adviso...

Dear 19CarolK,

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback! I am glad you enjoyed your stay and had a great time in Miami! Great location with so much within walking distance. I am sorry you did not get the herbal tea you wanted. We have it available in the restaurant and apologize it was not in your room. We hope you will return to visit us again soon.

Regards,

Donna

Stayed at this hotel for three nights in October 2013. The staff were very helpful upon checking in. We had a car, there is a small car park at the back of the hotel, but if you don't get in early you have to park next door for an extra charge $12 vs $20. The room was quite spacious, well kept and clean. The hotel is in a good location, across the road is a pier with lots of restaurants, but of course these are all charging tourist prices. There are a couple of pharmacies within a short walking distance of the hotel. I would stay here again.

This was the perfect hotel to start our Cruise Vacation off! It was close to the port of Miami. The concierge and entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly and arranged our transportation to the port. Our rooms were nice enough,especially since we did not use them for anything but sleeping. The location was perfect. The Marketplace is right across the street with restaurants, shopping and activities. I would recommend this hotel to anyone starting off their cruise vacation.....really just spot on as far as location goes.

Dear Jennifer E,

Thank you so much for letting us know what a great stay you had with us! It is so convenient to be located across from the port and near so much- Bayside shopping and restaurants, Biscayne Bay and all the activities there and so much that downtown has to offer. Great that you do not even need a car. We appreciate you staying with us and hope to see you back with us again soon.

Donna

We just went on a cruise and stayed at the Holiday Inn Port of Miami. The check in process was seamless as I had booked through Holiday Inn and pre-paid the night. The staff was helpful and very courteous.

The hotel is well situated. Across the street you find the piers with lots of restaurants and stores. We spent the evening there and had a great meal at the Bubba Gump and a few drinks at a rum place (Can't remember the name but there was rum lol). There's also a CVS pharmacy 2 blocks down to the right as you exit the hotel. The sell all normal pharmacy stuff (Tylenol...needed from the rum thing :-) )plus wine (Good selection)

All in all, good stay not too expensive

Stayed for one night. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was fine, but dark hairs in bathroom was disgusting. Breakfast was included (nice) in the café and was of good quality and variety, some of the staff were a bit snobish, though, and seemed not to believe that our daughter was only 12 (she is tall) and they were not good at hiding it (rude)! Pool is very small. You pay 12 dollars + for parking, but are not guaranteed a space (WHAT?!?!?). So I did not take the car out for an evening drive. Good thing too cause the parking was full all night. Hotel should not charge for parking unless you have a guaranteed space!

Room Tip: Get a room on the 10th floor, bayside. Fantastic view.

My Husband and I spent a few nights here before going on a cruise. The front desk clerk Montana was fantastic. He went above and beyond to help us and was supernice. The room was great and the location of the hotel was perfect since the port was only a mile away. Also bayside marketplace is directly across the street. Great experience here

This is the perfect location to stay if you are going on a cruise. This Holiday Inn is a stones throw from Biscayne Bay Mall. You can walk across the street for shopping and dinning. To get to the Port Of Miami a quick 5 minute cab ride will cost about $10 for 2 people. The hotel was a great price through Southwest. Rooms were clean and the staff were extra freindly and helpful. We also loved the in house dinning. Reasonably priced and the food was excellent! On our next crusie from the Port of Miami, we will definately stay there.
