    Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Miami Airport East

    Comfortable stay


    Five rooms were booked for the Mercy MedFlight crew (this nation's only non-profit, charitable air ambulance service) that had stopped overnight at Miami International Airport waiting for a patient. The crew reported that the hotel, recently renovated, was clean and comfortable and the staff was helpful and pleasant. A late night dinner was eaten next door at Bennigan's.

    Complimentary breakfast was served consisting of juices and coffee as well as cereals, pastries and waffles.

    This hotel would certainly be used again if back in the area.

    Great Value


    We stayed here one night pre-cruise with complimentary van from airport to hotel and complimentary mini-bus from hotel to Port of Miami. This hotel received hurricane damage and is still in the restoration process. However, our room was very clean and recently painted. Their complimentary breakfast was more than I expected. It even included scrambled eggs & sausage. We received a very good rate prepaying 6 months in advance at a travel web-site. There was a Bennigan's next door which had very good food. I had read reviews that the neighborhood was not that good, but we didn't plan on walking around there anyway. Great for pre-cruise but probably would not stay there for a week since nothing is nearby.

    OK Hotel


    Stayed here for a week last October and got to say, I think it was excellent for the money, and room was large and clean. Long way out of town, but I had a car, and was there on business, so was out most days anyway. Not the easiest hotel to find though - poor directions supplied...

    Fine for the money


    I should qualify my rating by saying it is above average for what we paid ($55 a night) but it seems that we got a much lower than usual rate. I wouldn't want to pay much more than this because overall this place is just average. The hotel isn't fancy and they had some hurricane damage but for the price we paid it is very good. The room was clean, the complimentary breakfast was decent, and the service was good (which is hard to find in Miami). It's a five minute drive from the airport and they have a free shuttle which was great. We left our car in the lot for seven days without incident. At $55 a night we would definitely stay here again.

    Don't stay here, it's bait & switch & send you across town


    We made reservations at this hotel because they're right next to the Miami Airport and we knew we'd be tired after a long flight. But when we tried to check in, we waited in a line and then they said they were renovating the 3rd and 4th floors and so they booked us in their other hotel, which was way across town. (We had just made the reservations a few weeks ago so they must have known the rooms wouldn't be available.) So we had to drive in the middle of the night across town in Miami (after receiving practically no directions from the desk clerk who could barely speak English - there was no map or any directions in writing to help us) and then finally after midnight and getting lost on the way, we had to wait in line again to check into their other hotel. This is a definite bait-and-switch, no one would have gone to their other hotel because it's so far away and I think this is how they fill it up.



    We stayed here overnight before catching a flight. It was clean, comfortable and fine for our needs and the rate we got over the internet was good. The airport van was prompt. I would stay here again without hesitation.

    Not my choice


    I stayed here pre-cruise and wanted something cheap, but decent. This place was just ok. The front desk staff was not friendly. The rooms were not at all worth the money they charge to stay here and I had a AAA discount. It is very budget friendly if you don't mind attitudes and mediocre rooms.

    Needs Attention


    This place needs absolute attention from their corporate office. This was given 4 stars through some websites ( was another one) I thought it would be very nice for the price. I was shocked that a hotel could be so disgusting and still be in business.

    The walls were absolutely filthy. The carpet had several very large stains. The mattress had an unknown large dark stain down the side as if something had been poured down the side of the bed.

    The bathrooms were not clean at all. There was hair and urine on the toilet seat. The bathtub was absolutely filthy.

    I arrived at the hotel too late and too tired to find another place. The staff said they didn't have any other rooms available. I find that hard to believe. I tried putting towels down on the bed to sleep. I was so disgusted I ended up sleeping in the car.

    The safety of the hotel was questionable. As I slept in my car, I was startled to wake up to someone looking in my windows. I will never stay at this hotel or this chain again.

    Lost our reservation on our honeymoon


    Upon arriving in Miami after a cruise, we had a reservation at the Baymont. Not only did they not have record of our reservation (which we had paid in full with a credit card) we were told that the only room available was a smoking room for 2x as much $$$ as was originally agreed upon. We ended up leaving and going to embassy suites right around the corner. It was very beautiful and the service was great.

    Avoid the Baymont like the plague.

    Not happy with this ant hotel


    Before going on a cruise we stayed here and I do not recommend staying here. The rooms were dirty and had so many ants everywhere! If you like the smell of must this is the place for you!The pool was also dirty.

    also if you want to go anywhere you have to take a taxi that will cost you at least 20 dollars each way. I will never stay here again.

We laughed and observed that yellow post sea dip wasn't a good colour! We loved Miami. Isobella is already planning to return with Erin and Millie when they are old enough.

We had plenty of leg room and just about any movie, TV show, and album that we could watch on our own personal device on the back of the seat.

Cory and I bowled the crazy onboard bowling lanes, Cory played basketball, and we gambled with our new friends in the casino. The group even organized two Slot Pull tournaments that were great fun. We made many new friends who we've promised to keep in touch. Some of us are even planning on cruising again together next year on the Norwegian Escape's maiden voyage ...

The time difference between London and the Eastern Time zone of the United States is 5 hours (London is ahead). Our original plan was to connect to a flight for Jacksonville at 5:05pm and would get home in one hour and half.
