“great decent hotel for budget traveler”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2009

I and my wife spent 3 nights in this hotel. You have to have a car with you or you won't be able to do anything in this hotel. This hotel is located in the 'west airport' area, in which there's nothing to see. But if you have a car you can access anywhere in Miami area within 30 minutes including everglades national park. This hotel does not provide airport shuttle service.
We didn't like the smell when we entered the hallway, but room was a bit spacious and ok. Hotel was in the quiet area, we couldn't hear any airport noise at all. Air conditioner worked very well but water came out from air conditioner and soaked the carpet around it. I had to cover the floor with a towel so that my feet doesn't get wet!
Pool was very small and it looked like just for kid's. Hotel provides free wireless internet.
I did bidding on priceline.com and got this hotel with very cheap price, so I don't have much complains. It was nice and decent hotel, next time I want to visit hotels around beach even if I will have to pay some more.

Needed a place to stay for 2 nights prior to cruise - and wanted 2 bedrooms. One night occupants were my 80 year old mother, my brother and me. Second night mother, me and teenage daughter and friend. Pretty location not important to us - and that was a good thing, because this hotel is near nothing - there are some strip malls and actually a small cow pasture across the street. Despite "Airport" in name, it is actually at least a 15 minute drive to airport.

Hotel is 2 parallel buildings with tiny pool overlooking parking lot. Suite was a real suite - 2 bedrooms with doors and full walls - each with a double or queen bed, a living room with full sized sofa bed, and a fully equipped kitchen, including d/w and m/w. Bathroom was small but adequate, with sink outside.

Everything was clean and well maintained. Elevator to 4 floors. Check-in was easy and we were given a choice of room locations. They provide a "Grab and Go" breakfast bag which we did not try and there is coffee in lobby (as well as coffee maker in room). A little confused about housekeeping services - they advertised limited housekeeping (alternate days), but we were there only 2 nights and room was fully cleaned between nights. Really nice mall with decent non-chain restaurants about 4 miles away, as well as usual fast food places within walking distance.

A perfectly fine place to stay if you need the space or facilities, don't care about location, and are just looking for a place to sleep at a good price.

I want to give my husband a surprise weekend vacation for San Valentine's day....I got to this place first,in the bathroom, the toilet never got to clean it...there was urine everywhere. They gave me another room which it looked clean and fine....but after several hours after a get together with friends and dinner, we came back to get a shower......my husband was getting a bath in his own dirty water...the bathtub was completely cloged for who knows what it was in there.....horrible right? when I went back to front desk...the person in charge, after sometime gave me another room...do you know what room? the first one with the urine complain.....well, I checked the room and everything looked normal except that some pubic hair on the toilet cover...but I was so tired, it was almost midnight....that I decided to move back...but when I get back to the room my husband that is not a plumber, could free the water with his own hands........I hope that nobody have this terrible experience with kids in this hotel...I am very disspointed.

Our family stayed here over the Xmas holidays in 2008 for 6 nights.

We chose this location for its value for the Miami Area. Located about 10 mins from the Miami Airport a few grocery stores are near by such as Publix and Winn Dixie(NW41st/Doral Blvd). Close by (driving distance) restaurants are Applebee's, Pollo Tropical, Tony Romas (NW87th Ave) , Red Losbter, Pizza hut ect.. A very small plaza is located next door has limited choices in retail/shopping.

Amenities
BBQ for guest to use. Ample parking available on site. Also, small pool with limited chairs. Laudromat in lobby area available $1 per load of wash or dry- Dispensing ($) machine for laundry soap in laundry room).
Also, a computer with internet was available to all guest at n/c if you needed to quickly print out your boarding pass, check your e-mail, the weather or touch base with home for a while. This was very valuable and useful to us.

Accomodations
We had 2 Bedroom unit on the first floor, each BDR with one queen bed and TV. Although the unit was not as large as other 2 BR condo-hotel we stayed at before, it was very comfortable. 2 BR and 1 Sofa bed in the living room fitted our family (4 adults and one teen) needs just fine.

In room Kitchen/Dining room
Small kitchen with basic pots and pans did the trick.
Had a dishwasher, large fridge, stove and microwave . Had to ask front desk regularly to provide dishwasher soap to us. They obliged with every request we had. Lobby has continental breakfast n/c every day, fresh fruits (banana/apple), juices, muffins, granola bars ect. The dining table only had 2 chairs-my only pet peeve of this hotel.

Also, note that housekeeping was not offered on a daily basis. They had 2 partial cleaning (providing fresh towels) and one full cleaning during our stay. If you are looking for full service cleaning- I suggest staying at the Marriott's Villas at Doral.

Overall, this hotel has a very nice outside apperance and landscape and is very is well maintained. Equally comfortable inside, I think this hotel makes it a great value for the Miami Area stay for families. It is a little far from the beaches about 15-20 mins drive but much worth the extra drive for the value it provides.

It's a good choice for people and families who wants to save on fancy hotels and want to cook some of their meals without spending a fortune.

  • Liked — Value, comfort, home away from home at reasonable price -Could bring pets
  • Disliked — Dining table only had 2 chairs

This hotel is decidedly for longer stays and everything is very apartment-like rather than hotel-like. For example, there is no actual "front desk" in the traditional sense - you walk in to an office and check in. It also does not have a restaurant.
Each room has a kitchen with full size fridge, stove, dish washer, microwave oven, dishes, pots and pans etc. The bathroom is very nice and homey with wooden floor. Rooms were very clean and furniture and bed in excellent condition. The TV is old style CRT. A/C works well. Breakfast is really not available, you can pick up a couple of boxes of cornflakes and a milk if you like (free). There are tons of restaurants in the neighborhood where good breakfasts can be had. The hotel is excellent value for the money.

  • Liked — Clean and comfortable, good location.

This suite hotel was mediocre compared to competitors. We got a 2-bedroom suite and found that the suite could be more spacious in every way. Both bedrooms, closets, bathroom, living room and kitchen were pretty small.

The hotel was clean, but furniture/beds were just ok. Complimentary breakfast was a joke, they just had some pastries in a basket at the lobby, with a coffee machine nearby.

Service at the lobby was slow. Self-service laundromat was typical for the 'hood.

The hotel location is out of the way on the western end of Miami. Not much to do as it's located in an industrial area. There are some restaurants nearby, but nothing to brag about.

This hotel is ok for a place to crash when traveling on a budget. There are better values to be found in Miami though.

Stayed one night after cruise. A little hard to find. Very friendly staff. We arrived early and the studio room we had booked was not ready, but she upgraded us to a one bedroom suite at no extra charge. Although some of the furnishings were a little worn looking, everything was clean. Very comfortable bed. Had everything that we needed.
