“Maids were nicer than front desk help!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2007

The hotel was not terrible, just a budget hotel. It was a bit run down, as some of these budget hotels tend to be when they're located in an urban area. The room didn't have any towels, but we found that the housekeeping staff, although more fluent in Spanish than English, worked hard to please us.

It looked as though the motel is struggling to make money any way they can. It seems as though the front office had been converted into a small snack bar. (None of the coke machines around the motel were stocked at all, so you were forced to buy overpriced coke from the snack bar.) In the small lobby they have placed a small desk for a rental car agency. It looked kind of weird. No shoe shine stand or newspaper vendor? The add-on front desk conceals a squawking radio with which they converse with the shuttle driver.

The front desk help isn't very friendly or helpful, unlike the maids.

There are a few restaurants down the street that you can walk to, like McDonalds, as well as fancier fare.

They have a free shuttle service that will take you to the airport or cruiseport. (The airport runway seems to be almost across the street, but the noise is not a bother.) THE SHUTTLE DOES NOT PICK YOU UP FROM THESE LOCATIONS.

In a normal hotel, you would sign up to take the shuttle at a certain time. Not at this motel. There is no signup sheet. They tell you that the shuttle leaves every hour on the hour, and that you should show up in the lobby ten minutes early. This sounds good. But we saw dozens of people show up at the same exact time to go to the cruiseport. As a result, some had to wait an hour to get on the free shuttle, and ended up arriving at the cruiseport later than they wanted.

While van drivers come and go, I thought our driver was quite gruff. He was probably overworked because of the motel's failure to schedule the trips.

  • Liked — cheaper, free transportation to airport

The grounds of this hotel is beautiful. I just loved it. It is pretty closed to Macdonalds which we only discovered the following morning when we were leaving. The hotel is okay for one night has the rooms are very basic, and I noticed a lot of ants around my front door when I was leaving. Lucky I didn’t see them when I checked in the night before otherwise I would have wanted to leave.

If I was stuck on somewhere to stay, I may chose this place again.

  • Liked — The hotel grounds!
  • Disliked — The bedroom. Didn't feel very clean!

I read the reports on this hotel and tried it anyway. This property is located on the north side of the airport which is a good thing: the runways run east to west. This means the noise is quite a distance from the hotel and I seldom heard the jet engines.

The check in was smooth and after an overnight stay I returned for three more days. The air conditioner was great and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was near to McDonalds and IHOP (walking distance) and a few miles from the major malls and shopping districts. It would take about 10 minutes to get to downtown Miami where I caught a Heat Game.

The room had a remote TV, was quite large and the bathroom has plenty of hot water and cosmetic items.

I usually stay at the Red Roof Inn and have to say that this Days Inn is equal in all aspects.

  • Liked — Location near airport and price.
  • Disliked — Front desk was slow to answer the telephone.

Went here on a whim when we got stuck at the Miami airport for a night inbetween flights. The front desk staff was inattentive. They were not mean, but they didn't go out of their way to be welcoming or polite. We tried to call the front desk several times to schedule a wake-up call and no one answered the phone. The room smelled strongely of cleaning products and was worn but not dirty. Bed was comfortable. Internet access and airport shuttle were reliable.

We stayed at this Days Inn before a cruise, because of the free shuttle to the Port and from the Airport. Shuttle service was quick and easy...rooms were basic and clean...front desk was very helpful with our question, We enjoyed it and unfortunately we could not take advantage of the beautiful pool, next time...great deal for a stopover.

Horrid hotel. Didn't have towels for each of us. Bad smells and burns in the formica sink. American Airlines Car/ hotel put us in this awful place claiming it was well rated. We were promised 2 queen beds by the written AA reservation but the hotel only had much smaller and not very clean beds. Avoid hotel and American Airlines Carhotel packages!

As a rule, you only get what you pay for in life. I stayed there both coming and going from and to my home in Brazil recently. The shuttle to and from the airport saves $10 a throw.

The room was OK, no great shakes but for the price I didn't expect much. Room and bath were very clean. No oder in the room and the air conditioning unit worked.

I do not like the $2 compulsory charge for a room safe, which I did not use or need. They should change this irritaing policy.

As I did not require any help from the front office people other than to check in and out, I have no complaints. They seem over worked and always on the phone.
