“About to be renovated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

Which is good. At bit dated and showing wear. A redo and all will be well. The staff was very kind and spoke clear English. They went above and beyond when my business associate's credit card was declined, reservation cancelled, reserved at a different rate and the hotel was sold out. I had a few little ants, but in a kitchenette, I wasn't surprised. The area was very safe and reasonably convenient to major roads. I would return to this property.

Room Tip: First floor! Third is smoking. Second, well limited elevator access from parking. If looking for...

Stayed in several hotels of this sort, but was unhappily surprised by the Candlewood Miami Airport West...outdated and old, which is not necessarily a problem, but a horrible smell came from the sink in the kitchen area and there were loads of little flies. Warned front desk but nothing was solved even a few days later. Not impressed at all...

It is a nice hotel but it was pretty outdated. The customer service was great and friendly. The area of town was good and seemed safe. Nothing is in close walking distance though. It was also really clean. They do have a pool and spa that were real nice and clean.

Stayed here 2-weeks. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful to a point (if it requires too much thinking forget about it...). They have free use of laundry machines (bring your own detergent or purchase from them). They have a pool and jacuzzi (?). Internet and cable TV, but the internet can only really accomadate the basics like light web-browsing, e-mail, and such (i.e. forget Netflix). There's a park right behind the hotel with a cool running track and pull-up bars, dip bars, etc. They're gym has some cardio machines, dumbells up to 50lbs. and the trio machine of lat pulldown, leg raises, leg extensions, etc. Their's a snack bar to purchase some junk food at street prices. All-in-all, for the price (lower than others in area) you get the minimum plus some ammenities. Location is good... close to airport, Dolphin Mall, straight shot to Miami Beach. Local area has plenty of food choices.

Room Tip: In the middle every which way to basically insulate you from the airplanes that fly overhead.

We stayed here for a single night at the beginning of our vacation. The hotel is a short drive from the airport, tucked back on a side street. The room fit the bill just fine: it had a kitchenette, which we didn't need, but which was equipped with a fridge, stove, and even a little dishwasher. The free wi-fi was zippy, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. My only quibble was with the check-in process. We got in on a Friday night, and there was only one desk clerk. A large college tennis team was checking in ahead of us, and it took about 30 minutes to take care of them and get to us. Maybe they were just short-staffed that night.
