“Good hotel about one hour by car from the Everglades National Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights in January 2014.

The hotel is located a bit outside the town of Homestead, just next to Florida`s Turnpike. Hotel staff was friendly, and you can park your car for free just in front of the hotel entrance.

We chose this hotel as we wanted a good, modern hotel to explore the Everglades National Park from here and were (almost completely) happy with it.

The room and bathroom were modern and very stylish, very clean and spacious and provided everything we needed. It was located on a higher floor with view towards the street/parking lot and shopping centers. We loved the room – the only thing we missed was an opening window, therefore only 4 points instead of 5.

Just returned from staying at this hotel for a visit to the Everglades and Biscayne National Parks. I was VERY impressed by this hotel - the check in was fast, the room was super clean and the staff was excellent. We had a great breakfast and snack at the cafe and the staff there was very accommodating and friendly. We had just come from a trip to the keys where we stayed at a very expensive resort that was disappointing and sub-par on many levels, so it was refreshing to come to a place with wonderful staff and clean accommodations. This is a perfect location for exploring the national parks.

We had stayed at the next door Hampton Inn previously and decided to give Courtyard a try. Check in was quick and efficient. The room was so clean and well maintained. The only complaint we would have is that the pool was too warm. It felt more like a hot tub and less like a pool. We can't wait to come back and stay again soon!

Thank you for taking the time to review the Courtyard by Marriott Miami Homestead. We are certainly glad you had an 'awesome stay' and mentioned the ease of check-in and hospitable staff. We will check the pool water temperature- as you had mentioned it was a bit warm. We appreciate the fact you let us know so that we can prevent any future discomfort. We are excited to share your comments with the staff- and we will see you next time you're back in the area!

Smart looking chain hotel in easy driving distance from the Everglades National Park.

Building. Smart, modern and well kept building.

Facilities. All you need, including a small gym and heated swimming pool.

Staff. All very pleasant and helpful. The hotel seemed to be understaffed on the first night, although Kim was amazing and served at the bar, made the food, washed the dishes and was generally good entertainment.

Food. Good value simple food.

Location. Not in a great position to walk to town or to any good restaurants, however really easy access by car. Access to the Everglades National Park is quick and easy, although a car is needed.

Summary. Does what it needs, nothing special, however everything it does it does well. Kim needs a medal or a rise.

Thank you for your recent post on Trip Advisor for the Courtyard Miami Homestead. We are so happy you were able to meet Kim- and she took care of surpassing expectations. I met with Kim just this morning to tell her about your comments- and read your excerpt aloud in our morning staff meeting. After all, this is why we are all in hospitality, and it is an honor for both the team and the property to have an associate recognized the way you did in your review. Many thanks for the comments- and we hope to see you back next April!

We stayed one night in the Homestead MC on route for the Everglades from KW. The hotel is in a great location just off the interstate and "Mavis" the sat nav took us straight into the car park. The hotel is relatively new and has a very clean and open feel about it from the minute you walk into the lobby. You are greeted by very friendly staff who speedily check you in. The lobby is open plan with food area, business area, shop and relax/chill space.

The room was large and very new, with king bed, sofa, new HD TV, coffee making, micro wave, fridge and a large bright bathroom with great walk in shower. There were no marks what so ever on the walls or carpet, which felt thick and soft underfoot. The hotel also has an area to wash cloths, if this is required as you are travelling around.

The room provide a great overnight refresh and there was no disturbance from other rooms or guests.

Across the street there is a Publix and a Cuban restaurant, to stock up on bits and catch a meal.

Overall, a great stay that was improved by the "newness" of the place. We would definitely recommend the Homestead MC if you want a stop over to or from the Keys that provides great value.

Thank you for the recent review/post on the Courtyard Miami Homestead. Being that we are almost 3 years old, we are considered a 'new' property, and most certainly the newest one between Homestead and Florida City. We are glad you found the rooms comfortable, beds and flooring clean, the staff helpful, and the lobby open and relaxing. We enjoy when our guests take a moment to let us know how their stay was- and we appreciate the time it took to do so. Please join us again soon!

We had a very pleasant experience here. Great location. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The lobby area is quite lovely. Very attentive and friendly staff. We found the bistro food quite adequate for breakfast. We also had a very well prepared mixed drink at the bar. We would definitely consider staying here again.
