Miami International Airport Hotel
Ranked #79 of 127 Hotels in Miami
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

We booked a block of seven rooms for one night to catch an early morning flight. The hotel is conveniently located inside terminal E. But it is a bit of a walk from baggage claim in terminal D. The front desk had our rooms keys ready, so check-in was a breeze. We had an odd number in our group, so to save money we put three in one room. The hotel did not have extra cots. The rooms are nice and clean, though.

In the morning we all awoke by 6 am and almost no one had hot water. The hotel has an over-zealous security guard who fussed at me for turning a lobby chair toward the elevator. He asked me to put it back, and when I didn't get it back exactly in the right spot he fussed at me again.

So it's easy to feel as if you're cattle coming through the gate instead of being valued as a customer. If I was not flying with a large group with lots of luggage I would take a shuttle to the nearby Hilton.

The hotel is certainly convenient. Front desk staff is good. Rooms are TINY. We found it difficult to sleep due to the noise from adjacent rooms (ie could hear conversations and plumbing). Especially from the slamming of doors....which you must do because the doors do not quit fit the jams. Avoid the restaurant on the 7th floor. Bed was comfortable and shower acceptable.

If you have an early flight we don't think you can go past the MIA Int. hotel. Clearly built in the 50's there is a lot kitsch around the place. We were upgraded to a king room which was great. Big and spacious with a good size bathroom. No noise from aircraft at all so we had a good nights sleep. Hotel could do with a refresh. Restaurant is quite expensive but there are plenty of choices for a meal if you go for a walk around the airport. There is a sign in the elevator directing you to the pool, it's not there anymore.

This place is a 2 star at best. Room was old and tattered and needed a good cleaning. Mattress was ripped, blanket had tears and was dirty. Bath tub drain was clogged. It has blackout curtains, but the door frame lets in too much light from the hallway. Quiet? Not really. No aircraft noise but slamming doors in the hallway, and a utility corridor nearby, do not add up for a restful sleep. Also, the $149 rate doesn't include over $30 in taxes, so be ready to spend $180+ for a room. It's sad that such a major international airport has such poor accommodations. I won't stay there again.

Stayed here for one night - Oct. 2012. Amazingly quiet for a hotel smack dab in the middle of the Airport Terminal Bldg. Didn't hear a sound all night. Room was small but sufficient - coffeemaker, but no coffee, no luggage stand. Room was clean and decently decorated however. Had dinner in the rooftop restaurant. Very slow and disorganized service - but the food was quite good. Not a bad place to stay at all, just nothing fancy or unique. All about convenience and tight schedules.

We arrived around midnight and had a 745AM departure, so staying on-airport seemed like the best way to go. Certainly convenient and no stress worrying about the shuttle!
We waited 10-15 minutes to check in as there were folks with issues in front of us in line. Staff handled the challenges fairly well, but it seemed like an eternity to get to the desk.
We entered the room and were overwhelmed by the stench of cigarette smoke! It was strong and quite unpleasant, even though they had tried to mitigate the odor.
The bed was the "low spot" of the stay. It was perhaps the worst hotel bed I have ever encountered, and I have experienced many. It was broken down in the center and created a hole into which your back would fall into! Complete junk!
We were so tired and desperate we braved it for the few hours needed, but I would never stay again. I will risk the shuttle roulette and stay at a place that provides some value. They have no continental breakfast and the restaurant doesn't open until 700AM.

Room Tip: I don't think there are any rooms better than the other.

We booked a room at this hotel just like anyone else, its convenient location inside the airport. However this place is run down, hallway walls are peeling off and our room was worse looking that a cheap motel one.
Everything is outdated in this place.
