I can't say enough good things about the friendly, helpful staff at this hotel. The front desk manager at checkin was easily the most helpful, knowledgable professional I have met at a hotel, even when compared to hotels several tiers higher. Whatever they're doing to keep employees happy at this property, they're doing it right! Overall, the hotel was cleaner and more modern than I expected. Despite being an airport hotel and removed from the downtown and beach scenes, it has a distinct Miami vibe and tidy, pseudo-art-deco decor. It also has a complimentary airport shuttle and has contracted with the nearby Dolphin Mall to provide shuttle service to the mall for a small (reasonable) fee. Our room had a medium-sized (5-inch diameter) patch of mold growing in the bath tub. Clearly, that should NOT have been there. My travel friend says he saw a cockroach in the bathroom, too, but I did not see it and, as a Floridian myself, very much understand that those are just a fact of life in the Sunshine State. The mold is something I can fault the hotel on... the cockroach, if it exists, is not. There were no bugs apparent at the complimentary breakfast, thankfully, but more than enough tourists. The breakfast area was very crowded, but we never had a problem finding seating and they didn't run out of anything while we were there. The selection was a little skimpy, even when compared to other La Quintas, but almost everything offered was fresh and--except for the requisite make-it-yourself waffles--on the lighter/healthier side (a BIG plus). La Quinta is one of the few Miami-area hotels that offers free parking, another huge plus. Just don't park under the decorative trees separating this hotel from the nearby Embassy Suites, or you'll want to get a car wash before heading downtown or to South Beach. The rack rate for our stay was $189 per night--I probably would have been dissatisfied at this price. We had some vouchers that made the stay significantly cheaper, though, and the property exceeded my expectations for the price we paid. Overall, we had a very positive experience.
