"Not the best."

The hotel is close to the airport, which is nice but that's about it. The A/C does not cool properly, the bathrooms are old and in pretty bad shape. It's an old property and in need of many updates and repairs. It's okay in a pinch but would not want to stay here for any amount of time. We wanted to visit Miami and areas for a couple of days on our way to St. Lucia. They messed up our reservation both coming and going. We stayed here one night on our return trip to the U.S. We waited almost an hour at the airport even though my husband called as he was suppose to. We had 8 people with four of them children, one baby---no fun. The van was disgusting. It was filthy and completely torn up. The driver did not want to use the A/C, even though we had been standing outside in 100 degree weather waiting on him. We have stayed in many La Quintas and most have been beautiful with lovely rooms and furnishings, not so with this one. The breakfast in the mornings is not good either. The set up is make-shift and awkward. It doesn't work with the crowds. There is no good flow to it. The boiled eggs were room temp and they ran completely out of coffee. The staff was not empowered to make any changes in anything to help a customer. I could not even mail a post card. They DID make things right in the end, when we returned my husband had to call several different numbers to get things taken care of but we did get a credit and an apology. If this is a corporate ran hotel they need to make some changes in facility and staff training. Not an overall good experience but it was a roof over our head for the night. The rooms are suppose to be non smoking but clearly people had smoked in the room we had.

"Bring your bug spray......."

My primary reason for staying at this hotel is to be able to take my dog with me. Typically the rooms are all nice, clean, and we have a good stay. This time my room had ants and roaches. Then I was switched to another room which also had ants and the room. There is construction next door which I think was the cause for rats in the parking lot late at night. Needless to say I will stay in another hotel in the future even if it means I will have to board my dog.

While the front desk service was nice and refunded our money we reserved the room for our honeymoon night before we took our cruise... first room we were greeted by 2 roaches, small bugs crawling on the towels... told the front desk which they didn't seem surprised..New room had tracks of roaches under the mattress, small swarm of bugs on the night stand... the hallways reak of raid and ate very dirty... requested a refund which we received no problem but then stood in the lobby for too long waiting on taxi... HORRIBLE pay a little extra and avoid the bugs!

"Location close to the airport ! Bus to Miami Beach !"

The hotel itself is more average but conveniently located at the airport. The rooms are ok, but everywhere the floor is wet next to the aircondition. The windows are well-isolated but not the walls so bring earplugs in case. At night there was a high tone and i couldn't manage where it came from which was a bit annoying. If you want to use the shuttle service i recommend to wait on level 2 outside at gate D 3 ( American Airlines ) AND FLAG DOWN the shuttle directly as it may otherwise just pass. D 3 is at the beginning of the circle the shuttle bus is driving and so the driver will be more willing to pick you up. I was lucky as i only had to wait for 5 minutes but i read bad comments and even in my shuttle there was a very upset couple waiting for more than 1 hour although they called several times.Just south of the motel you can take the bus J which runs all the way directly to Miami beach ( south beach ). It runs every 20 minutes and the stop is at NW 42 Av@NW 30 St ( google it on the map ).Breakfast is included but average too which means nothing special, bagels ,toast ,jam , cream cheese and coffee. For dinner i took the shuttle to the airport and had a great Fajita and a couple of good draft beer ( samual adams ) in the restaurant Chili's located at gate G on level 2. Tip the shuttle bus driver and make sure when he will return. Last but not least Wifi is there but very slow in the evening.

The hotel is very close to the airport and not far from the cruise port. Thanks to Marcel, check-in was a breeze and he was very helpful. The room was clean and spacious, the bed is very comfortable. I was by the back and you could hear the planes taking off but the night I stayed it wasn't that many takeoffs so it didn't bother me. Breakfast is continental with waffle maker. I will stay here again.
