“one night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

There was some noise from the jets BUT the rooms were clean - basic, but clean. The parking lot was well lit. The staff were helpful as well. I wasn't crazy about the location, but if you are flying in to Miami, this may be perfect.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

although there were cheaper options on line, i booked this hotel due to favourable customer reviews / scores compared to some of the horror stories at cheaper hotels. it also ticked the main boxes - free shuttle , free wifi, continental breakfast included.

nobody replied to my e-mail about how and where to pick up the shuttle, and i waited about 20 minutes until i saw the bus cruising the arrivals area. return shuttle left on time - journey c 5 minutes.

reception was swift and efficient with no frills. the express checkout option was a good idea, and worked well.

the bedroom was decent size, and very clean despite the carpeting. the 2 large beds were extremely comfortable. there was a big flatscreen tv, and a dedicated work desk with proper lighting and a nice executive style swivel chair.

in contrast the bathroom was a little disappointing. on the small size, and consisting of a single plastic prefabricated unit just dropped into place. shower was hot and strong, but toilet flush stopped working in the morning...

the rooms were double glazed, but still affected by noise from airplanes and ice-machines / general corridor traffic. the alarm call came on time, but i was already awake.

the free computer terminal in the lobby was a bonus, as there was also a free printer which proved very helpful in printing the aa boarding pass for onward travel.

i had been hoping for more of a hotel feel, rather than motel. the lobby lounge was just a couple of grubby sofas across from reception desk, and behind that was about 10 small tables for the breakfast area, which got fairly busy, particularly with early closing at 9am... my table had such a wonky leg, that my cereal spilt everywhere, but there was no other free table...the products themselves were decent prepackaged stuff in the main, but with some real boiled eggs and fruit. coffee was very good.

i did not get to see the pool. the advertised gym was a joke - just 3 aerobic machines jammed side by side in a small room the size of a bathroom, with a small tv.

between this hotel and the redroof is a brennigans pub/restaurant which provided decent food and drink with good service, if overpriced when considering tax and tip added to advertised prices.

overall the hotel served its purpose well, but i was hoping for a bit more for my $89 including tax. i guess there is just too much business to get good quality and a good price in the same place around miami airport, with a lrage number of 1-night stays.

We chose this hotel because of the previous positive reviews and after staying there pre-cruise I'm happy to say it was a good choice. We didn't have to call the hotel at the airport because the hotel shuttle bus came by within 15 minutes. The hotel is showing its age a little but that was not a concern considering we paid a fair price. At checkin we booked for the free cruiseport shuttle the next morning. It was a separate company who provided this service and they also offered an after-cruise return for $20 per person. The only thing to remember is that if you don't have a car there's only an old Bennigans to go to for dinner and there's nowhere nearby if you want a full breakfast instead of the hotel's limited complimentary offering.

This hotel is a 2 minute drive from the airport rental car pick-up location and is very convenient if you arrive late in the day and need an overnight stay before continuing on your trip. The pricewas very reasonable, the room was clean and there was no airplane noise. The free breakfast was also a plus, although it was crowded and choices were limited. The staff was very helpful in providing directions.

We stayed one night pre cruise end of November. If you used to Marriott or Hyatt than you will most likely be uncomfortable here. The walls are not lined with beautiful paintings and vases. And there are some minor blemishes here and there but the rooms are perfect, cozy, comfy, quiet, and clean. All rooms are accesible from the INSIDE. Reception was quick. There is only one restaurant nearby (Benigans) accessible by walking through the parking lot. The restaurant is ok. Bar is well stocked. Access from the road is a little tricky by car but the Onstar turn-by-turn directions got us right in. The hotel is located right at the base of the MIA runway an d planes fly by very low and loud, but you hear very little inside the room. Great value. We hadn't yet tried the breakfast at the time of writing this post but while LQ breakfasts are adequate, they are not as plentiful as some other hotel breakfasts. Oh, the hotel offers one way free shuttle to the Port of Miami. You will need to get yourself back to the hotel post cruise either by the same shuttle (I think $10 p/p) or you can take a cab from the port..... I would stay here again for a one nighter.... We paid $114 in NOV WEEKNIGHT FOR A KING ROOM.

I really recomend it. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, good breakfast, parking and free internet!
We have bought some items on the internet and the desk staff kept them still we arrived there. We booked our room in advance so we got a good price. There is also a shuttle service from/to the airport we you are not renting a car.

Booked via Hot Wire, got rate under $100. Rooms were spacious and clean. Motel is next to airport, planes coming and leaving. Despite proximity, the rooms were very quiet. At most could hear low muted sound of airplanes overhead, not a problem. Couldn't hear any noises from adjoining rooms. Hotel seemed very busy, but we checked in quickly w/o an issue. They serve breakfast, but can't comment as we didn't have time to eat there.

Room Tip: We were on third floor, may have been a quiet factor (not sure).
