“Tired hotel but it's all about the location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We stayed here before an early morning flight the next day. The best thing about this hotel is the location, especially if you do not want to transport your bags out of the airport in preparation for your next departure. The rooms and beds are tired. The bathroom was not clean and the carpet had stains. The alarm clock did not work (in an airport???) and this was inconvenient. We did have the complimentary breakfast which was average but appreciated. We were happy that we did not have to pay the $15 per person for it. There is some remodeling going on and, hopefully, this will make this tired place fresh and inviting...at the prices that are charged, it needs it!

Room Tip: there are no good rooms, all small and our room looked out at a building

My husband & I stayed here coming from Jamaica. We had a small moment where we couldn't find it but turned around & there it was! There's no signage. It was not but a short walk away from the baggage claim. Construction is obvious, but the beautiful overhanging in stained glass art in the "lobby" made up for it. No lines. At the front desk, a bit of confusion between the staff (2 guys & a woman) on who would help us. The guy that ended up helping us was even nice enough to speak another language in a personal conversation/laugh amongst each other while helping us--looked to be one of the guys flirting w/the woman employee--very unprofessional when he should've been informing us of the elevator location or our amenities, maybe asking us if we had any questions?? He failed to inform us to keep the WiFi sheet they give you w/the codes--once you leave the hotel you can utilize it while you wait for your next flight!! The codes change everyday.
Anyway, we discovered the elevator. Stayed on the 5th floor in a queen room. It's small, but first impression was wondering where all of the terrible reviews came from? The room had a nice contemporary-mod look & feel. We had a great view of the airport looking out over the city. The flat screen was awesome but needs more channels. It was the beginning of March Madness & the ESPN stations were missing!! The bed was very comfortable, so comfy that once we laid down, we stayed there watching basketball until we fell asleep. Slept like babies too. There was ZERO noise!
The bathroom was small, but it was VERY nice & stylish. Enjoyed the Bath&Body
toiletries & taking a shower w/the rainfall shower head. The shower & sink was either not cleaned or not cleaned enough--there were other ppl's hairs in there, but not a deal breaker.
Again, not sure about the cleanliness as we were looking through the Miami guide for nightlife & there was a sticky substance on top of it while turning the pages...a little gross but we were too tired to care.
The coffee & tea had a nice set-up w/Seattle's Best. We didn't use it but would've if had more
time.
We did not go to the 7th floor for dining but if we are there again we will definitely try it out.
Overall our stay was great! Would've been more content w/a lower room rate. Convenient after long flight & for overnight layover. Check-in simple, overlooked construction, stayed in a great room & left with no issue. Thanks Miami Intl. Hotel for the pleasant stay while in the midst of improving!

I flew in evening and overnighted leaving next morning early thus the decision to stay at the airport hotel.

Incredibly convenient, staff friendly, rooms very dated and middle of the road. Mattress was very middle of the road and old and not very comfortable. Mind you, I have been spoiled by Marriott, Hyatt, and Westin beds -- this mattress was the discount brand probably bought in bulk for $50/ mattress.

My stay was 'adequate'. Food at their restaurant very mediocre. Rooms small, basic, and okay.
I would stay there again for the convenience but I cannot believe that Miami International Airport, a major International Gateway, would allow such a mediocre 2 star property to do business as they do, and not demand they either clean up their act, or give the concession to a Marriott, Hyatt, or Westin, etc.

Stayed here one night both going to and coming from the Caribbean. Studio rooms, very compact. Construction is underway at the hotel, so tarps are up in places, such as the elevator lobby. Long lineup to check in at hotel on a Wednesday evening. No lineup two weeks later.
Digital clock not set in the first room. No soap or lotion in the second room.
Weak to unattainable wi-fi signal in rooms (rooms 525, 326).
In the first room the single-cup coffee maker was not plugged in, nor could its cord reach an outlet. I moved it to the bathroom shelf. No problem in the second room.
First stay: no hot water from the taps! Trouble getting through to front desk, several tries, so I called the hotel operator, who said he would talk to someone (it was 11:15 pm) and phone back. At 11:45 I called again – “they’re working on it” – to say don’t call me tonight. Yes, I had hot water in the morning. When checking out I mentioned the hot water issue, and there was no apology. (No offer of discount either.)
Single bed, soft mattress, but nice pillows. Second room had a double bed.
Hotel location in Concourse E is close to Concourse C check-in desks but about a 10-minute walk from Concourse J.
Since I booked online, I got a voucher for breakfast in the dining room: I had a nice plate of fruit, hash-browns, toast.
Second stay I had a late-night salad in the 7th floor restaurant, and the waitress's welcoming smile was appreciated. Fast service in the restaurant.

This hotel definitely needs a renovation. Other than airport location if you need to spent a night there is not much else. The service at reception and especially at breakfest was very slow. They give you an impression as they were forced to work. There is an excellent and a cheap bus connection to Miami Beach with plenty of Hotels along the way.

We spent one night at the hotel. We were leaving for Cuba early in the morning and the group we were traveling with advised us to spend the night at the hotel. The hotel is old and ugly. It is under construction. You cannot open the windows and the air is stale. The rooms are small and tired. Breakfast is included, but does not start until most charter passengers have already checked out. This hotel has an ideal location at the airport, but is just dreadful A total waste of $200.

Room Tip: I would not stay here.

It is right in the airport, so extremely convenient. The top floor restaurant was adequate and the service there was friendly. The photographs in the hallway were interesting. Downhill from there.

Reception was efficient, but not friendly; rooms were tiny and very poorly eqipped. No safe deposit box (in an airport hotel!), no shower cap, no pen/pencil/notepad by the phone, virtually no toiletries, two plastic cups (for over $200!), no fridge or minibar. Corridors were dingy and worn and eating utensils left in the corridor for hours.

Overall two star motel quality but okay for the convenience for an early or late flight.

You would be much better off at a nearby off site luxury hotel, but then you have to lug your bags on and off your transportation.

And leave lots of time for airline check in. Miami Airport is TERRIBLE and food choices ABYSMAL. So eat in the hotel restaurant if you have time.

Room Tip: There are probably no good rooms.
