We checked in at 20:30 and out at 04:00 so weren't really concerned if we managed to get any sleep or not. This was just as well as people are arriving at all times of the night and the walls are extremely thin.
However, we found the manager extremely helpful and he informed us that after we had checked in and dropped off our hire car to call him from the airport and he would let us know when the shuttle would collect us. And he did. It was a tight squeeze but we all fitted in and the lady dropped us off at the Runway before delivering her passengers to the Days Inn (owned by the same person, apparently).
Indeed there's nothing much in the way of food or restaurants in the area and the shuttle bus driver said the Days Inn was the best place. We ate there on her advice and because we just wanted something. It did the job but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again.
After 5 hours sleep we took the shuttle back from the hotel to MIA to catch our flight out. Sure, the room had a sticky floor and the shower had no pressure but if you consider that a taxi is €15 each way from the airport and they offer a free shuttle in their bargain room rate then you really can't go wrong.
Maybe the Days Inn is a better bet but the Runway Inn did the job for us.
