“So much potential but ultimately failed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This location has so much potential to be a great Sleep Inn, but has so many flaws is hard to recommend this property. The location is about 5 minutes from the airport and close to many fast food choices that are open late, kind of a tough location to find off the main road, Plenty of parking is available, and secure pool as well; but very employees who work their, just limited in what they can do. Rooms are in major need of a facelift, carpets are extremely dirty, lighting is old and out of date, bathroom are stand up showers not tubs but the shower doors in one of our rooms was held together with screw brackets. TV while being 32" is very hard too see as you cannot adjust the brightness. Bedding was also stained and damaged in addition to lacking of any real touch. Their are better local choices for a modest price. A refresh here and it would be a great hotel.

Off to a bad start right away when I attempted to call the hotel for shuttle pickup from airport. I kept getting an automated voice that said "press 1 for English" and then "please hold". And then "press 1 for English" and then "please hold" again. I tried calling 3 times and finally gave up and purchased a shuttle ride for $17 from another company. When I arrived at the hotel, I told the desk clerk what happened, but no apologies/explanation were given. The phone in my room did not work and I had to contact front desk twice before they sent someone up to fix it. There was also trouble with the plumbing and my toilet clogged. Other than that.... the room was clean and quiet, the location was good, nice pool area, and delicious breakfast. I'm glad I only had to stay one night :)

Reasonably priced, quiet surroundings. Airport shuttle runs hourly, more or less. Staff helpful. They have a list of local restaurants that will deliver if you don't want to brave the streets. Close to port and airport. Room clean and comfortable.

We were at the Sleep Inn in April 2013 before a cruise.
The hotel is located near the airport but on a back street so you don't get the noise from the busy NW36th. We had no problem with the pick up from the airport. You can use the free hotel phones at the arrival levels. The instructions were very clear and the gentleman who drove us to the hotel (Lazaro) was very nice and gave a lot of information. The hotel offers a shuttle to the port for a minimal fee. As prices may change, check with the hotel for the current prices.

Upon arrival we were assigned Room 236. The reception agent (Brian) was very friendly and knew very well the surrondings and recommended places to eat and ways to go around the area.

Our room (we requested at the back of the hotel) gave on the parking lot and then the adjascent golf course. The hotel was quiet even if it was full. The rooms are very comfortable, the bathroom has a big shower and the air conditionning works great. (See pictures) The hotel has a pool that we didn't use, so I can't comment on it.
There is also a landromat on the 2nd floor close to the elevator.

The only inconvenient I can see is that the breakfast room being really small to handle a hotel this size, the lines are long and it is hard to get a table. They also have a waffle machine and because waffle take time to make it is delaying even more the breakfast process.


What really make this hotel a great place though, is that the staff have the way with people and they make you stay enjoyable. They give excellent information and will offer help whenever needed.

Thank you to Brian, Lazaro and Yosbel for their excellent service.

We will certainly be back there for our next cruise.

Room Tip: A room at the back of the hotel avoid noises from the street (i.e. construction)

I made a pit stop here for a couple of days and all I can say that its just for that...a pit stop. It was a nightmare getting our shuttle from the airport because the vehicles from the hotel did not have the proper signage and we had to be calling them often but they were very helpful. Pretty average room and you get a continental breakfast with your stay.

we stayed in this hotel only 1 night when we came back from our cruise (early in the morning). We booked 3 rooms and when we arrived at 10.00 am 1 room was already ready; this was good, so we could leave all our luggage in that room. We were never asked for a smoking or non smoking room but 1 room was used by smoking people. The hotel has a very nearby good heated pool with some good chairs.
The breakfast is rather good : some bread, coffee and waffles to be made yourself.
Good hotel for its price..
The day we left a shuttle (2 times per hour) brought us to the airport.

This hotel is just right for one night stop. There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport. However when we arrived at MIA we called the hotel on courtesy phones at the airport (because you need to call them to pick you up) but no one answered. The rooms and service are typical for sleep in airport hotels.
