"Just 5 minutes from the airport. The hotel was clean, and the staff was extremely accommodating and let me check in quite early. Awesome breakfast and free shuttle to and from the airport. Definitely stay here.2019-08-05"

"A good, clean hotel. I was happy and recommend staying here.2018-08-05"
"The building was in good condition. The hotel seemed overpriced, but you can't beat the location, which was just 6 minutes from the airport. Great shuttle with a kind and courteous driver. The continental breakfast didn't start until 7 AM, and we had to leave for the airport before then.2018-02-19"
"Clean, modern room that comes with a loveseat with a twin size pull-out bed. Free airport shuttle runs every 15-20 minutes. Nice pool and outdoor lounge area that is shared by the Courtyard and the Marriott next door. Good place to stay when you have a lot of time between MIA flights.2022-12-21"

"The AC in our hotel room was stuck on cold. It took 3 hours for a maintenance worker to come, and it still didn't work after he "fixed" it. After complaining, we were moved to another room.2015-10-23"
"I had a good, comfortable hotel stay. No breakfast because of Covid.2020-07-29"
"Our hotel room was unacceptable for the price we paid. It was dirty, and the floor needed vacuuming. I found trash on the side of one bed. Our room was by an employee room, and they talked loudly. Breakfast was sparse. Lower your expectations if you stay here.2020-03-02"
"This hotel has one thing--and one thing only--going for it: its location. If you have an early morning flight or a long layover and you just need a place to lay your head for a few hours, this is your place. The hotel has the basic necessities (hot water, free WiFi, a bed), but it is dated and and doesn't offer much in the way of extra comforts or amenities. For example, there was no seating area, and the ironing board was broken.2019-02-27"
"This hotel is dated, but it is clean and reasonably well maintained. The bed was comfortable, the free Internet worked well, and the hot water in the shower was plentiful. The windows were well insulated, and we heard only one or two jets take off during the night. We also had a good dinner at the restaurant by the lobby.2019-02-26"
"What a fabulous hotel. A+ amenities, food, and drink. The staff was amazing. Definitely stay here.2021-08-18"
"This hotel wasn't worth the price. I had to call 3 times to request a shuttle pickup from the airport; a recording stated that no one was available. I finally reached someone, who said it would arrive in 10 minutes, but it took twice as long. The driver was nice. I was woken up repeatedly by noise from the adjoining room. The controls on the bed were messed up. The coffee area in the room was dirty, and half the showerheads didn't work. The elevator was dirty. We won't stay here again.2021-06-11"
"The hotel was beautiful and classy. Great rates, too. The front desk clerks were friendly. Stay here; you'll love it.2019-06-20"
"The hotel was ultra modern, and the room was large.2017-06-07"
"Not a good experience. This motel was cheap, but my room was dirty and smelled like smoke and mold. It made my clothes smell terrible. Stay somewhere else.2022-06-12"
"Close to the airport - room wasn't clean and had bugs; I asked for another room - someone tried to come into the 2nd room, and we got a harassing phone call - staff was pleasant and accommodating - wouldn't stay again.2012-02-01"
"The hotel was fine, but not in a super safe area.2019-02-20"
"Our 1st stay at this hotel was exactly as expected, but this time we didn't have a good experience. The room door rattled every time another room door was closed, so we had to shove a towel in the gap at the bottom. The AC leaked water, and the bathroom looked partially remodeled. Not satisfied.2016-05-29"
"Great service. I had a good stay and recommend this hotel.2016-03-17"
"The suite was great, and spacious enough for my family of 5. The staff was excellent and professional. Highly recommend this hotel.2015-08-07"
"Good motel room. Below average breakfast offerings. Get to the airport shuttle bus early; it runs hourly, with space for only 10 people.2022-10-21"
"The motel was older. The room was clean, but the soundproofing was poor. Exterior noise was substantial, and I heard doors slamming all night. The toilet ran. No elevator. The airport shuttle only ran on the hour. The staff was friendly enough, but there are better options near the airport.2021-12-06"
"This was one of my most pleasant motel stays. The service was good, and breakfast was wonderful. No elevator, though.2019-11-14"
"An awesome experience. The hotel was clean.2017-06-01"
"Our stay was quite comfortable. The room was clean and well-appointed, and the staff was friendly. Parking was secure. I recommend this hotel, especially if you're visiting the Nicklaus Children's Hospital.2017-05-06"
"The hotel room was quiet, fairly clean, and quite spacious. The AC was a bit noisy, but it worked well. There was a table and chair, and a coffee maker with coffee packs. Good-sized TV, and there was an iron and ironing board in the closet. The beds were super comfortable, and the pillows were so lush. Good water pressure in the shower, but I didn't like the toiletries. The shuttle ran every hour. The check-in clerk said breakfast started at 6 AM, but when I went down, the room was still locked. I'd stay here again.2021-11-21"
"I was bitten by a bug in my hotel room, so I was upgraded to a better room.2019-10-27"
"The hotel was great, but there were no specialty restaurants nearby.2019-10-16"
"The hotel was satisfactory. The shuttle didn't run 24 hours a day, though.2019-06-27"
"The hotel was clean, quiet, and right across the street from the airport. I got a good night's sleep, though; the airplane noise wasn't a factor. Just 20 minutes from Bayside, too. Breakfast wasn't great, but there were some restaurants nearby. No pool, so we went to Miami Springs Community Center, paid $5, and enjoyed the pool all day.2019-04-04"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
