I stayed at this La Quinta hotel one night early the week of May 23, 2010 prior to embarking on a cruise departing from the Port of Miami.
This hotel is an older property located near the MIA airport (a 3-4 minute shuttle ride). It is a modestly priced economy hotel featuring very basic amenities.
"Basic" amenities include a free continental breakfast (waffles, hot & cold cereal, pastries, yogurt, coffee and orange juice), and an internet terminal near the front desk.
The good news:
The staff was friendly and the hotel offers free airport shuttle service every 30 minutes. In addition, they have a free shuttle to the Port of Miami for guests departing for cruise vacations.
My room was clean and did not smell of cigarette smoke. The a/c was quiet and worked well, and there was basic cable television.
The room rate was on the inexpensive side.
The not-so-good news:
There is only 1 (rather run down looking) restaurant in the immediate area around the hotel, and no shopping options.
The television, telephone and light fixtures in the room were ancient and vaguely dingy.
While this hotel could seriously use a remodeling job, it was adequate for a very inexpensive one night stay.
I would only --nominally-- recommend to fellow travelers seeking a 1 night stay at a clean, no frills hotel near the MIA airport or departing for a cruise.More
