“Excellant Staff”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Needed help with elderly family members and must say the staff bent over backwards to accommodate all of our needs. Shuttle driver was very friendly and helpful. They found me a driver to take me to relatives condo and that driver was super!

My only complaint is there were no grab bars in the shower. My senior family had problems getting into and out of shower.

Room Tip: Ask to be several rooms away from the elevator.

We were driving down to Miami for a cruise. Needed a room for the night. Didn't have a reservation. Got on the Priceline app on my smart phone. This was a good price. We have cruised before our of Miami and ft laud so we are familiar with the area and some of the hotels. This property has some not so good reviews but I'm familiar with it from reading trip advisor. Since it was a good price decided to try it. Glad we did. Great nights stay. Great bedding very comfortable. Great wifi. Good breakfast, nice staff. Hotel decor very pretty. Some heavy usage shows here and there like spots on hallway carpets but everything that needed to be clean was. Don't hesitate to stay here. Priceline deal at the time I was looking was 75.00 plus tax for a king suite. Nice big room. I called the property before I booked and the price was 116.00 for a standard double. Since I already researched local hotels and knew some prices, I knew this was a good price for the night. Didn't use the shuttles to port or airport but they were staffed well and often busy.

Hello Kentucky,

We are so happy you chose our hotel to stay in. We are also very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We know the carpet in the hallways shows signs of being heavily trafficked. We have ordered new carpet and are installing it very shortly. We welcome you anytime.

Regards,

This great hotel is a "Plus" which means that it has some special amenities: at this location, there is a good hot breakfast, quiet rooms with VERY comfortable pillow top mattresses and pillows. They have good transport to and from the airport and on arrival, they had yummy chocolate chip cookies at the registration desk. The Wireless worked perfectly. The rooms were spotless and the TV had lots of channels. Absolutely no criticism of this gem of a hotel. Plus - rooms were very reasonable.

Room Tip: It doesn't really matter what room you choose. They're all good.

February 2012 the morning Concierge put in extra effort to get us a shuttle to the airport. We missed the hotel shuttle and he went double time to find us a safe on time ride. The hotel was nice, clean and quiet.

While I certainly would not stay here for any length of time, for an overnight before my flight it was fine. As other reviewers have mentioned it does need some sprucing up, particularly in the hallways, where the carpet is a disaster. My room was actually pretty decent. Room was large and king size bed was pretty comfy. There was a couch as well. Bathroom is nothing to write home about but seemed clean. While I would agree that the shuttle to the airport isn't perfect as it only runs every hour, hey it was free! and my driver was very nice and a safe driver. Free breakfast was not one of the better ones I've seen; the only fruit available was apples. But it was nice that there were a couple of hot items which you don't always get. Also hotel is convenient if you are driving because it is right off the interstate. My room was very quiet but don't know if highway traffic is noticeable on the front side of the hotel.

Room Tip: Back of hotel is probably quieter.

Consider other options in the area. Although Best Western is generally a very good choice, and one which I am very familiar with, this particular property is lacking in several areas:
1). Shuttle service. There is a complimentary shuttle between the airport and this property but you need to book ahead. If arriving at terminal 3, The hotel is not listed in the airport services board on the arrivals level and you need to call directly or to the sister property and have your call transferred in order to request a shuttle pick up. Once ordered, expect to wait between 15-20 minutes in the outdoor "hotel off-site" area which is located at the very end of terminal 3. Complimentary return shuttles must be booked in advance through the front desk. If you want to arrange a shuttle to the cruise port, it must also be booked in advance and will incur a charge of $8.00 per person.
2). The business center has 2 computers but only one can print which causes long backups when trying to print airline boarding passes or other docs. Allow yourself time.
3). As noted by others, housekeeping needs to step up their game. The hallways and the room carpet were filled with stains. Room 506 also had garbage cans that had not been emptied, carpets that looked like they had not been vacuumed, windows and furniture that were full of fingerprints.
4). Rooms: are generous in size with the amenities noted on the website, but they are very noisy, and you can clearly hear people in other rooms and in the halls. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Be aware that there is NO in-room safe, but you can leave valuables at the front desk.
5) Complimentary breakfast was basic and well set out with a fair amount of seating, but it was very busy between 8 and 9 am and we had to wait for a seat. Some items such as yogurt ran out (not sure if it was replenished) and the garbage cans were overflowing.
6) Front desk was friendly and helpful. There are vending machines in the lobby for water, pop,snacks, etc.
7) Location: There is a small mall, a Cuban restaurant and a Subway sandwich shop within walking distance. It is close to major highways for easy access. Luggage carts are available by the elevators but are out of site and not in lobby, so ask.
Overview: until this hotel steps up its game, I would not recommend it.

Room Tip: An even number room will face away from the highway.

hello Gateway889,

Thank you so much for your business and your honest review. We work tirelessly to deliver an excellent guest experience to each of our guests and are very disappointed that we didn't deliver on this promise to you! We take your critiques as opportunities and have addressed them all below.
1) There is a lot of demand for our shuttle service and therefore arrangements to ride it must be scheduled.
2) We are working on getting 2 printers so you will not experience a line should you need to print boarding passes, etc..
3) We have retrained our housekeeping staff (everyone needs refreshers) and I am personally inspecting these rooms myself to make sure that they are overly clean. On the other hand, we have ordered new carpet which should arrive shortly and we will be installing it throughout the hotel.
