“Cheap but very tired hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

We booked this hotel thinking it was near to the airport but it was a 15min cab ride and most of the taxi drivers weren't happy to take us there as it's a bit of a pain to reach. The hotel itself is cheap but very dated, and really in need of refurbishment. The bed was quite comfy but again the sheets and pillows looked old. The pool is one of those roadside motel pools in the car park. Not much nearby in terms of restaurants or bars. Breakfast was very basic. I would only stay here if you are on a tight budget. If you are after an airport stopover you might a well head to downtown miami as it's probably the same distance.

This is the best pet friendly place in town and a very good hotel overall. Extremely well priced and safe in a very clean area. Easy parking all around. Centrally located in Doral and near everything. Across the street is a nice plaza to go. Walmart and Dolphin Mall just 10min drive away. Just that the swimming pool is not heated and the MIA airport proximity makes that some noisy airplanes are flying low above during landing or take off. But mostly not in the middle of the night and when winds turns.

Arrived in Miami at 3 am Fridat morning. Called hotel they told me the earliest I could check in was 8 am. Called at 8 am they told we could check I'm at 11 am. Went to hotel outside grounds looked great. Close by a few restaurants and shopping areas. Walked in to check in the receptionist tells me that they don't have a room for us now because someone else came and checked in. My dad was furious. Then they decided to try to see if there were any rooms. I had booked 7 rooms called and canceled 4 because some people backed out at the last minute. Then the receptionist tells us that all my rooms were canceled by central. I said why she did she didn't know. She said she knew that I had canceled 4 of them because all of the paper work were left on the counter. She didn't know why central canceled. Called central they said they don't know why it's canceled. Make a long story short they gave us 3 rooms and off one room gave it to us half price after having to wait after 3 pm. Get to rooms they had a light odor. They were clean. the breakfast is very plain. Breakfast area gets crowded quick and there's really no space to eat for everyone. Enjoyed hot tub. Elevators are so slow. I had extra charges on my card management were very helpful to me get them taken care of. I rated them average because of the foolishness we had to go through to get our rooms which were booked 2 months prior to our stay. Because of that I'd probably never stay here again.

Room Tip: Always have confirmation info and check bank statements

The bedrooms need some repairs. The staff is good until they have our credit card. Every time I needed help or information I wasn`t satisfied. The breakfast is terrible. Very few options to eat or drink and there are only about 10 or 15 tables for more than 200 rooms. It`s quite impossible to find a table if the hotel is full. And at the time that the breakfast is scheduled to finish, they simply take EVERYTHING at once, doesn`t matter if have people having breakfast yet. I wouldn`t come back.

I have to admit, my first experience with la quinta was a nightmare (in texas). I have stayed at two other la quintas since then, and it has been a great experience. This particular one was clean, and comfortable. The staff overall was good. Two that stood out above the rest were Luis and Anthony. The housecleaning did a great job. Photocopies and scans were done cheerfully. The laundry was open all day, which is great if you work until late.The only knock would be the skimpy breakfast. Overall, this is comparable to a comfort inn and suites.

Room Tip: Miami is an interesting place........... it means that you cannot be in a hurry for anything. People...

Very nice hotel. Pleasant staff. Only issues ere not enough bath items for three people and they did not empty the trash from one day to the next. They also did not replace the paper drinking glasses/cups. Sort of like we didn't exist after we checked in!!
