“Perfect Airport Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Close enough to the airport to be handy and yet none of the airport noise. The price was good for the area and very good for a nice suite. We were very glad to find this place to end our vacation at. The full kitchen was great even though we chose to eat out. Nice pool and hot tub.

We arrived at this hotel on the 17th December 2012 to the 22 Dec 2012 on our way to Jamaica. We had a lovely stay. Pool available. Laundry facility, clean and tidy all areas. well equipped gym, hotel tidy. close to pretty much everything one would need. little tuck shop (self service) downstairs, better to stock up on snacks from Walmart though as tuck shop a little more expensive. About 1 mile from Walmart. Staff friendly. always space in the car park.Pictures are a true representation of the hotel. equipped Kitchener, dishwasher,microwave,cooker,coffee mate,Very good WiFi, we were on third floor with strong signal. Though close to everything i recommend Hiring car, Miami/ Florida is just like that easier to travel around. close to Dolphin mall. Close to airport about 15 minutes. Hired car at airport, used our UK Tom tom as we had downloaded USA maps onto it.

Excelent format for 1 or 2 days stay in Miami.
If you are willing to do some shopping, this is the place to be!
In 5 miles you have 2 shopping centers, 1 24hs Wal-Mart and several stores
There is no airplanes noise in the rooms.

Because I made the mistake of scheduling a business trip to the Miami area the day after the College Football National Championship was played there, I had very limited choices for hotels (many were sold out). This location was recommended since it was closest to where I had to work and actually had rooms available.

Check-in was very quick and convenient, with a very efficient front desk clerk. I was pleasantly surprised to find I was automatically upgraded to a larger suite due to my Priority Club Rewards membership. Strongly recommend that you ask for a room at the end of the hallway of each floor - you can see from the outside of the building that those rooms are obviously larger than the rest of the rooms.

Room décor was a bit dated, but it was very clean. The air conditioner was a bit loud, but because the bedroom was separate from the room with the unit it didn't keep me awake. Yes, the hotel is underneath the approach to the runways at Miami International, but I couldn't hear them in my well insulated room.

There is a park next to the hotel with a running path; it opens at sunrise, and it is a bit of an oasis if you want to get in a workout. While breakfast was not offered at this hotel, there was a Dunkin Donuts within a short walk from the location. There are also other small restaurants all within walking distance.

Overall the Candlewood Suites is an average hotel, but I was very grateful to have found a room in the first place.

Room Tip: The bigger rooms are on the ends of the floors; try for X34 or X36 (where the X represents the floor...

We staied here only one night but I loved the home atmosphere in this place. The staff at the reception was VERY friendly and helpful. Comfortable bed, spacious and clean room, clean bathroom. No idea if breakfast was included because we left very early. Very close to the airport, in a nice quiet area and not too far from Miami attractions. I would definetly go back if I'm in Miami again.

Decent, clean, quite comfortable. Although Miami Airport is featured in the name of the hotel, you still have to drive for about 12 kms to reach the airport. You do need a car, especially if you plan to arrive late, there is no shuttle service. A cab to / from the airport will cost you anything from $22 to $28. There is some public transport in the neighborhood, but the schedule can only be found on the internet, not on the bus stop and I would not count on it after dark, some lines stop running.
But after two weeks of travel and staying in hotels it was good to have a place with a small kitchen and a lot of space. The place looked clean and had basic kitchen facilities, a huge flat TV screen and a desk to work. Wi-Fi worked well. The bed was OK. The suits are easily accessible by car and are a short drive from a supermarket and other shops. Laundromats are free. You can arrive late and they have a smart way to give you the key even though there is no-one at the reception after 23.00. The room service is provided only once per week, the place is more like serviced apartments than a hotel.
Our room happened to be connected to another one with a door (locked of course). Unfortunately our neighbors enjoyed watching TV after 2AM and earplugs came in handy, so if you can, avoid rooms that are interconnected.
Overall, the place feels quite impersonal, there is nothing homely about it. Staff will answer your questions but some of the receptionists come across as rather indifferent and slightly blase. Not my favorite place and not your charming B&B, but it's comfortable and convenient and offers a lot of space and basic facilities.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not connected with internal door to another, or you will hear other people TV
