“Nice pre-cruise stay.”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

We stayed here in early May 2012 the night before our cruise out of the Port of Miami. We arraived very late, after midnight, at MIA. When we got to baggage claim we called the hotel number and they sent a complimentary shuttle within 5 minutes.

The hotel is nice and clean, and because it is a suite the room was huge. The room we had was a two bedroom with a kitchenette. One bedroom had a king sized bed and the other had two (I think) queens.

They do not have colplimentary shuttle service to the Port of Miami, which would be really nice. But, they do have a third party they work with that will pick you up and take you to the Port for $10 per person. Pretty reasonable. Just tell them when you check in that you will need transportation to the port and they will set it up. There are 4 or 5 times you can choose from in the morning.

This hotel is very close to the airport so you should expect the occasional noise from takeoff and landing.

The breakfast was very good and included in the price of the stay.

The staff at the front desk were very friendly as well.

Room Tip: Ask if there are rooms that don't face the airport, that might help on noise.

My husband, five kids and I stayed here the night before a cruise. Upon check in, we received an upgrade (hubby is a Hilton Gold member) and one of our rooms ended up being a 2 bedroom suite! What a great start to vacation!

The location is nearly right across the street from MIA airport, but near a residential area. There is a grocery store within one mile where we purchased some wine to bring with us on the cruise. The pool area is small and we didn't use it at all. The back of the hotel is on a big pond that you can sit outside and relax near during the evening.

The hotel has a hearty manager's reception Mon-Thurs that includes soup, salad, pasta, beer and wine. What a great deal with so many people in our family!! Also, the hotel had a wonderful breakfast spread that saved us a ton of cash too!

The room were full suites and had bottled water, cookies and microwave popcorn included. Everything was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the kids were happy. We are returning to this property prior to another cruise with the kids in July :)

We had relatives staying at Miami Beach and we were in town for a few nights but didn't want to pay the high fees for staying right on the beach. Instead we got a one bedroom self contained room with a King bed in the bedroom, and the kids shared the sleeper sofa. We had a car so it was only a 20 minute ride into town, and we visited our relatives at their hotel, enjoyed the pool and beach, then came back to our hotel in the evenings. The kids enjoyed the novelty of watching the planes. Breakfast was included and parking was free. It cost us a third of what it would have done to stay in on Miami Beach itself. It would also be great for people over nighting before or after a flight.

Room Tip: If you're into planes, ask for a room facing the runway (runs parallel). If you're not, as...

My husband and I are, admittedly, airplane-crazy. We stay at the Blue Lagoon Homewood specifically to watch planes pre-cruise, requesting a room on the MIA side which affords a great view of 2 runways. But we also love the service here, which is always first-rate from the housekeeping staff to the front desk to the guys cleaning the pool. Everyone is very friendly. The suites are kept very clean and offer free high-speed Internet, a small kitchen and reasonably spacious sitting area (in a 1BR, which is what we had.) The elevators are pretty slow, their coffee is pretty weak and there's not much within walking distance - but those minor inconveniences are the only negatives. It's really a great airport area hotel, and an excellent value considering the rate includes breakfast and a Monday-Thursday "light supper" with beer, wine, soft drinks and a hot snack (they had hot dogs one night, and potato skins another.) We love the place!

Room Tip: For a little quieter night, choose a room on the lagoon side.

Close to Miami airport and a welcome retreat after a long 11 hour flight, welcoming, friendly staff who went out of their way with local advice and help, including shuttle bus lifts to the local shopping centre and back. Excellent self catering facilities, plenty of room and a wonderfully comfortable bed!

Free parking and internet access and a guest laundry is a real bonus and the included breakfast was a more than adequate start to our day.

We found the hotel convenient for Dolphin Mall and a major Walmart store once I had learnt the wheel to wheel combat techniques of the Miami Freeways. There is no hotel restaurant as such but we were happy to self cater prior to our high end cruise and associated gluttony! there are plenty of restaurants nearby.

The acid test is would we return? Yes, without hesitation.

Room Tip: We were on the airport side but had no problems.

We stayed here on our last night in Miami because it was close to the airport. I want to give this hotel a higher rating because our room was lovely...spacious, clean, with a new feel to it. However, the plane noise from MIA is VERY loud. We stayed in another Miami hotel earlier in our trip that was also close to the airport and didn't experience anywhere near the same noise level. There were also random hotel noises (it sounded like someone was wheeling stuff around and drilling or screwing something...). There is no automatic fan noise in the room to drown out any of these sounds, so you hear everything. There was also an issue with the elevators. The ones that didn't have "out of order" signs on them never seemed to arrive. We finally gave up waiting and just used the stairs during our stay. Other guests seemed to have the same issue. The free breakfast was nice, but an absolute zoo. There was no rhyme or reason to the way the lines flowed, and items would run out leaving people waiting for staff to restock. There is no restaurant in the hotel, and nothing within walking or short driving distance besides a Burger King. We ended up ordering a pizza. There is a grocery store nearby and the room is equipped with a small kitchen so you could easily purchase what you need and prepare it in your room. Overall, an okay stay in a very nice room.

We stayed here the night before flying out of MIA. Free shuttle to MIA, great pool with hot tub, clean and quiet rooms even with a huge group of teenage cruisers present. We did not get to eat the breakfast the morning of departure since we had to leave so early. We were allowed to check in early and spent the afternoon at South Beach. My sister met us. We slept in the first living room area with the sofa couch so we didn't have to wake the others, who stayed in the bedroom. Would stay here again, but it would be best to have a car to get to other places during the day. Parking was free. The closet had a safe with a key from the desk.
