“Skip this hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2009

My company booked me here and I was not happy after seeing all of the other reviews. The hotel is cheap and pretty clean. My biggest complaint was with the service of the hotel. My smoke alarm was broken and would go off at night. I told the front desk and they attempted to fix it. But then the next night same issue. They then said that they replaced it. But once again at 3am the alarm would sound.

Homestead Extended Stay – Miami, FL Dec 29th – 31st 2007
Experience overall – the Hotel looked nice for the type of accommodation that it is.
Overall – outside clean, up-kept, pool available – that’s a plus – interior: clean and modern.
Rooms: Clean – a few items left behind from last person staying there.
1 disadvantage – someone kept leaving a wood-chip in the back door downstairs so that they could get in without going through the front door – this was on more than one occasion – I removed it at least 3 times and it was always back again – this greatly decreases the feel of security, while a door being open to anyone who wants to come into the back door of a hotel at night does not make me feel safe.
Service: There's a great full continental breakfast being served, but only Mondays to Fridays. There's wireless Internet for 4.99$ per Stay, and the guy at the front desk gave me the code for free, maybe because we were just staying 2 nights.
Staff: friendly enough - no above and beyond – just service as needed and polite.
Out of 5 Stars, I guess I would give it 3 because the room was clean, the service was good enough and the value for the price was good. It would have been 4 stars for the type of hotel it was, had the staff gone a little extra out of their way to be friendly and the wood chip have been removed permanently from the back door. Also, the bathroom really left something to be desired – the tub wasn’t the cleanest, and there was a really gross big stain on the floor in the bathroom as well.
I would recommend this hotel for the price and convenience

We stayed here during a business trip to Miami. I normally like Homestead Hotels, but not this one.
I should have posted this warning sooner, but am just about to take another trip to Miami and am not going to use Priceline to make sure we don't get this hotel again. Instead I am reading traveler reviews on this site to make a better choice, and decided to share my experience.
It first appears to be a nice hotel, but borders a bad neighborhood and the grounds back to a park.
The parking lot has no security of any kind, no fence, no camera, no security guard. Our vehicle was broken into and everything inside stolen. We had driven a van and there was business property inside we could not transport to our room--it must have taken a little while to clean it out. The police who responded said it happened there frequently and the hotel had been advised repeatedly to install cameras, but would not. We were also told by the police a similar event had happened there THE PREVIOUS NIGHT but there were no warnings or information given to guests.
The management acted absolutely unconcerned about the event.
Unfortunately I had booked two consecutive weekends through Priceline and had to return the subsequent weekend. The manager had assured us that we would have a room where we could park outside our own window on our return, but when we returned we were told he was on vacation and no such room was reserved for us. Again, no one seemed to care even a little bit.
Only use this hotel if you are not parking a vehicle and if your transportation can safely drop you at the door and watch you enter.

Upon arriving at the Comfort Inn Suites near the Miami Airport, and thinking it looked awful, I decided to go across the street to this hotel, as it certainly looked new and inviting.

While the lobby, pool, and public rooms looked great, once we got up to our room, we found it was FILTHY, I believe they MAY have changed the sheets and towels since the last people were in it (or at least we prayed they had), that was all.

We spent an uncomfortable night there (I think I got at least one bite from some insect) and couldn't get out of there fast enuf in the morning.

Oh yeah, and the airport shuttle doesn't start running until 7am, so if you have an early morning flight you'll pay for your own cab.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. From outside hotel looks neat and o.k. Even the reception area and breakfast room are well maintained. Once you enter the room its a whole different story. As soon as we entered the room it had a very bad odor. So we had to use room freshener everyday. That somewhat minimized the bad odor. Kitchen is large enough but all the appliances and microwave were dirty and had food stains on them and we couldn't use. We didn't use the sofa either since it looked dirty and had stains on it. T.V remote was oily as well. Beds were another horror story. Sheets and pillows smelled bad. We asked for fresh sheets and pillow covers. Even the fresh ones smelled bad. we were in non-smoke room. Corridors in non-smoke room area had heavy cigarette smell. Front desk staff and the lady who came to change the sheet were friendly and helpful. But standard of the hotel is just below average and it’s not in a good neighborhood. If you choose to stay in this hotel, make sure you have room freshener and disinfectant handy.

I was informed in the end of 2005 that I was going to be staying at this property for 6 weeks in spring of 2006 for a job training in Miami. When reading the reviews here I was horrified. I equiped myself with all sorts of disinfectants and anti-roach sprays. Arriving at this property I was plesantly surprised. It is far from described in the previous reviews. The building and the area is actually very nice, clean and well kept. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchen provides everything you might need for the longer stay. If you need something your room does not include I haven't had any problems getting it from the friendly front desk staff. Yes, this is an extended stay facility so you should be aware of their "housekeeping rules". However the weekly service provided was all I needed as I was given 9 towels each week and if you try and keep your room clean by yourself you should not have a problem. If you do require a more frequent housekeeping service it is only an additional 5 bucks. I certainly would not recommend this place for a turist stay of one, two or just a few nights as there are better and more appropriate hotels nearby, but for an extended stay this is a very good option and after spending 41 nights at this facility I would gladly do it again.

They only clean the rooms once every seven days. My family and I stayed there for 5 days and they NEVER cleaned our room. They claim to have a refresh service after the second night, but that only means that someone comes up to you room and hands you fresh towels and trashbags. They do not even vacuum, make the bed etc. It was a horrible experience and I would NEVER go back again. Given that they never clean the room, the visitors on our last day were no surprise. We saw a live roach in the bath tub and another in the kitchen. I would never recommend in a million years
