We stayed at the La Quinta in Miami Lakes for two nights. My husband was going to the Dolphins game with some friends from work, and I was going to hang out with our 23 month old daughter. I wanted someplace toddler-friendly that was close to the stadium, grocery stores, restaurants, and parks. I also wanted a suite so I could watch TV or work on the computer while my daughter napped in the afternoon.
We reserved a King Suite and requested a crib for the room. Check-in was fast and easy. Our Suite was fantastic; it was spotlessly clean and spacious. The living room had a small microwave and fridge, as well as a table with chairs, a sofa and easy chair, and a large TV. The bedroom also had a TV. The crib was clean and very sturdy. There was no door between the two rooms, but it was arranged such that I could tuck the crib around the corner to block the noise and light from the living room. The bathroom was very large with plentiful hot water.
We had dinner the first night in the Miami Lakes town center, about a 5 minute drive away with a decent selection of restaurants and shops. There were several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel as well. The hotel offered a complimentary breakfast each morning but we opted to go to the Einstein Bros. Bagels across the street (there was also a Starbucks). The stadium was a 15 minute drive from the hotel without taking the Turnpike. After dropping off my husband, my daugher and I visited Flamingo Gardens which I highly recommend. I took advantage of the free Wi-Fi internet service while she napped.
The only negative point to our stay was the heating unit in our room. It was unseasonably cold when we visited, and while the heater in our room worked well it was pretty loud and would bang occassionally. It was tolerable, though, and not something that would be an issue for Miami most of the year!
After reading all of the reviews I have to think that this hotel must have improved significantly over the past year. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the room was wonderful and recently remodeled. I would definitely stay here again.
