"My car got stolen and hotel not responsible"
Reviewed Dec 2, 2013
Judith C | Miami, Florida
I went on a cruise from Miami port for eight days, and I left my car on the property to be transported to and from port. I left my ford f-350 there thinking it would be safe because they guaranteed safety and security. To my surprise when I returned to the property my car was missing and property manager couldn't explain what happen. I was very upset because it was suspicious that know one realized when a big f-350 disappeared. Eight days later I have still not found my truck and cameras in hotel did not help to find out how my truck disappeared.
I am giving this place 3 stars, because TA would not allow me to give it a half star less. Like many of the previous reviews, this is an OK place to spend 1 night. I would not (could not) spend a second night. I keep expecting a plane to miss the runway and end up in my bed. We are really close to the airport, and there is a lot of noise!!
My room is clean, as best as I can tell. I didn't give it a Hotel Impossible type of inspection! :)
We got a great rate of $115 inclusive of tax and fees. This includes 7 nights of parking while we are on a cruise, as well as a free shuttle to the port. We have to pay our own way back to the hotel when we get back (but that's ok). There are not a lot of frills (namely coffee in the lobby). there is a pool out back that looked pretty clean... But I would hate to swim out there with the planes flying so close over head....not relaxing.
There is a Bennigans next door, but that's about it if you are walking. There are many options a short drive away.
There is a huge construction project at the entrance, and it is hard to spot this property from the very busy road. Thank you GPS.
If you factor in the cost of parking and shuttle service....the LaQuinta is a pretty good value. I just can't help shake the feeling I am slumming it for the night. My only focus right now,is getting on the ship in the morning!
This hotel needs a face lift. The staff are very helpful and try hard. We had a room on the 6th floor that was very noisy from the airplanes landing and taking off. The breakfast was OK but not enough seats for a hotel of its size. The wait for the trip to the cruise port was too too long. I believe this company is separate from the hotel but their poor organization still reflects on the hotel.
Trying to find the hotel would be impossible with out the assistance of GPS.
We will look for another hotel for future Stay and Cruise packages.
"Treated my wife who has miscarried recently terribly"
Reviewed Nov 24, 2013

My wife miscarried on November 11. We had a cruise planned to leave on November 25. She was still very sick from the DNC procedure to remove our child's lifeless body from her womb. We elected to take the cruise to try and give her something to take her mind off of this horrible event. When we landed in Miami, we were told that a shuttle runs every thirty minutes from the airport to the hotel. We waited 30 minutes, and called the hotel. Upon getting the front desk, I was put on hold for four minutes. I called back, and got someone. They said the shuttle would be there in five minutes. My wife's back was aching in pain. We waited another twenty minutes, and the shuttle finally arrived. When we finally flagged the driver down, we were told that the shuttle was full, and we needed to get a taxi. WE WAITED FOR NEARLY AN HOUR TO BE TOLD THAT WE COULDN'T HAVE A RIDE, AND TO GO GET A TAXI. My wife's been bleeding for 15 days almost nonstop, and medically she was in terrible shape. We finally get to the hotel. They did pay for the taxi. I told the front desk that my recently miscarried wife had waited outside for an hour only to be told to take a taxi WHICH WE COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT WAITING FOR AN HOUR. A man named LENIN responsed, "Sir I'm sorry for your trouble." THEN HE HANDED ME BOTTLED WATTER AND A BAG OF PRETZELS!!!!!!! NO DISCOUNT, NO AMENITIES. BOTTLED WATER AND A PRETZEL BAG. We checked in and our trash can didn't even have a bag in it.
They really got my vacation off to a crappy start. This trip was to try and help my wife heal. The first night was nothing but aggravation.
We did a 'Stay and Cruise' where we spent the night and were shuttled by bus to the Cruise Port in Miami while we left our car parked at the hotel, then came back after the cruise.
Between the clean rooms and helpful staff, it's obvious they try very hard to please their guests. The room we were in was super quiet for being near an airport- what a pleasant surprise!
They're doing some construction near the entrance right now but everything regarding the hotel itself went well! We will be staying here again before our next cruise out of Miami!
