Airport convenient, but totally run down.

They did not have our reservations made well in advance. No elevator. Desk clerk abrupt & not friendly. Rooms and motel run down.

Definately not for our next layover!

Tiny room with a bed that sunk to the middle. Two people will struggle to stay separated on it. (good for newlyweds... I guess) The fitted bottom bedding sheets pops right off when you lay down. Might as well sleep on a bare mattress. The staff would rather spend 5 minutes talking to someone than check in the 3 waiting customers. I have no clue how this could be rated a 3 star.

Not the best

It is an OLD motel. It was ok in the clean department. But all the floors everywhere are tile, no carpet anywhere. So noisy to say the least, you hear every door open, everyone going down the hall or talking. It made for a noisy nights sleep. It is not a 3 star, I would say barely a 2 star. The plus was the shuttle to the airport ran about every 20 minutes.

Good overnight for the airport

The shuttle service is great for a quick overnight at the airport - highly recommend for anyone who has an overnight at Miami airport - the only big drawback is their is nothin near the hotel... Maybe if they could offer a shuttle into the city center a couple times a day it would give them a head above their rivals

A good stay for a night

We stayed at this motel because it offered transportation to our cruise ship and also to the airport when we stayed after the cruise. They delivered on the transportation even with an airport shuttle back to the airport beginning at 3:30 am! Also, we got back early from our cruise so they rushed and got a room ready for us. The hotel is older and some of the rooms are still being remodeled. All in all though, it was worth it for the price!

Convenient First or Last Night in Miami

Pretty funky motel in an Iffy neighborhood, but the free airport shuttle and the proximity to the airport are BIG plusses, and the price ain't bad either. Our flight arrived at 1:00 a.m., and they came right out to pick us up.

There's an interesting Honduran bar/restaurant across the street that serves good breakfasts.

good to stay for a night before a flight out of miami

this hotel is great if youre needing a place to crash close to airport and stuck between nowhere to stay during flights. the free breakfast is great and the coffee great - and the lift to and from airport is a big reason i stayed at airport. the room is clean, sheets clean and it has all those basics you need - BUT NO kettle or cups in room is very disappointing, but on the whole at least there is wireless for free and the room is clean and thats a big plus!! the staff werent exactly friendly - a little short - but there is a language barrier - i am british and dont speak spanish and their english wasnt good! the cleaning staff were friendly.
