Good for an overnight stay

We stayed for one night to catch an early morning connection. The shuttle was on time and convenient. Breakfast was average. The staff at the reception was friendly and accommodating.

just ok

Location of this hotel is a pain. You have to keep doing U-turns to get to it. It is behind a huge building evening built which is actually going to be a hotel right in front of it. The lobby is very smelly, until morning when there is food around...but then I remember the strange smell in that area and pass on the food! Room was mostly clean, bathroom was ok, beds were fairly comfortable. The pool is very small. Obviously it's noisy because it's right there at the airport. I'd choose something on a main road with easier on off access to highway next time.

stay

Good experience. Staff was nice place was clean. The only draw back was the building of a new hotel I front of La Quinta. Made it look a lot more dirty outside.

Ok.

Hotel was just ok. It was very crowded and the noise of the planes flying over was very annoying at times. At breakfast time everything ran out pretty fast due to the amount of people there. Replenshing was very slow and needs to be looked into. At checkout I needed a trolly for my luggage and couldnt find any, i lugged them down stairs myself. Over all the hotel it self was sleep-able(if thats a word).

Great for what we needed

We needed a room for one night before a cruise. Got a pretty good rate. The hotel staff was always friendly and helpful. Free shuttle from airport and to the Port of Miami. The beds were pretty comfortable and the room was very clean. There's one restaurant basically in the parking lot. Good food but very,very slow service. I would stay again if needed for one night.

Great deal for Cruise Passengers!

This was our second visit to this particular location. For guests that are taking cruises, they allow for extended parking as well as have a free shuttle to the cruise port. The rooms are okay and nothing fancy, but the staff is amazing and very accommodating. There's also a restaurant that's practically in the parking lot that is a great way to grab a quick bite.

Only for the location

This worked fine as a pit stop before we flew out the next morning, but it was pretty basic. I was surprised at the previous good reviews. The non-smoking room definitely smelled like smoke (possibly from the vents). Another guest made the same remark as we got out of the elevator, so it wasn't just me being extra sensitive. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was barely adequate. Lots of guests, but I imagine most were like us, just passing through.
