We arrived with just under an hour before our next flight. Half way to our gate, Reed realized that he left his passport and tickets on the previous plane. He & Mike had to hurry, but they were able to retrieve it and board the next plane with seconds to spare! What's up with the Taylors and their passports? We're on the plane and eager to be done traveling. It's already been a long day.
By 9AM my bags were packed and I was ready for Peru. Mom had to put on her crazy aggressive driving hat to get me to Miami International Airport in time. I made it through security and to the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding.
I was flying LAN airlines nonstop to Lima. I had a window seat directly in the middle of the plane's left wing. …
Blog entry number 2. After leaving Heathrow for our epic 22 hour journey we boarded the plane and nervously awaited take off. The journey to Miami was ok, it was made better by passing the time watching a couple of films and reading some of my new book. I watched Cars 2 and some other film which wasn't that great because I can't remember it, or is …
Minneapolis, USA to Miami, USA to Curacao, Netherlands Antilles
At 0530, everything was looking good. I was snuggled into my window seat cocoon, all set to fall into a 3.5 hour slumber to Miami. But that was not to be. I noticed quickly that the airplane was getting cold, and within 15 minutes, I had to put on my Smartwool socks …
Day started early but even so it seems there wasn’t enough seconds to spare. Anyway we made it to the airport on time! I wasn’t asked to go through the scanner AND I didn’t even get physically harassed by the TSA!! Always a plus! I managed to sneak in an extra carry-on too! Surprising since it wasn’t small at all. Amazing …

Historical Traveler Reviews Miami International Airport Hotel
I arranged a 1-night stay at the end of a business/vacation trip, because of an early return flight the next day. The pool/spa on the top floor was closed, cited reason was for hurricane repairs - but I can see from a subsequent review it's been closed over a year now! I checked in then went into the terminal to find where I needed to be the next morning. I then returned to my room, watched TV & turned in early. About 11 pm-midnight, noise began above me. It sounded like construction noise and kept getting louder and louder. At 2 am there was a huge crash above me. I called the desk and they said nobody was on the floor above me, and they would have security check it out. Shortly thereafter, the noise stopped. I had only 3 hours of sleep. Then when I got up and took a shower in the morning, the bathroom flooded despite my having the curtain inside the tub. I never could figure out why. When I went downstairs at about 6 am there were construction workers leaving the other end of my floor, which was cordoned off by plastic. When I complained about the noise upon checkout, they said there was no noise and there was no construction, and I must've been hearing something outside. The person walked away from me and went into the back, and that was that. I'd booked my stay through Travelocity and spent a couple of months going through their maze attempting to get a refund of my $130, before they finally said they couldn't help me and referred me to the hotel. By that time, I'd already tried going directly to the hotel and had gotten nowhere. (Just try to find out from Miami-Dade who even owns it!! No response.) This was the single worst stay I've ever had anywhere, and I concluded that I would've been more comfortable sleeping in a chair in the terminal. As with any major airport, there are quite a few hotels in the vicinity so absolutely do not stay here despite the lure of convenience.
My flight into MIA was 3 hours late and it took 45 minutes get my luggage-I was not arriving at this hotel as a happy traveler. I had read reviews of this hotel AFTER I had already booked a night for a layover on my way to Aruba. I brought my spray can of Lysol and expected the worst. At the elegant-looking front desk area, I was checked in quickly. Although there was a sign outside the elevator when I got off at 6th floor that said, "6th Floor Closed for Renovations" I went down a long hall (no debris in sight) and found my room. I was surprised to find a pleasant room decorated in bright tropical prints. There was no smell at all. My only complaint was that I had requested a refrigerator, but because of my late arrival no one was available from housekeeping to deliver it. A waste basket and a bag of ice did the trick. The next morning, check out was quick and I walked down the concourse to my flight. I have traveled around the world and I would stay again at this hotel, especially given the convenience of its location.
Convenience at a price
Terrible conditions and service for an expensive price. The airport and the company that owns this hotel should be ashamed. As long as travelers continue to spend a ridiculous price to stay at this dump, the management will have no incentive to improve it. Unfortunately, convenience of an in-terminal hotel is big and therefore the airport should step up and force them to clean up and step up.
We flew to Miami and arrived at 12:01 AM on New Years Day. I had checked and found out that there would be no shuttles running. Fearing that we would have trouble finding a cab we booked a room at the Miami Airport Hotel. We were leaving on a cruise the next day and figured it wouldn't be too bad for one night
Bad ,Bad Hotel
This Hotel should be close . The roon are smelly in so bad shape that it can be call 4 stars,I will give it maybe 1 star.
overall I would say this is problaby the worst hotel I ever stayed.
What can I say - whatever you do, do not stay here! This is definately the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! The hotel was indeed under renovation (which we were NOT advised of from the agency when booking or prior to arrival) and therefore the pool/spa/gym was closed. Despite the renovations (which the hotel is in bad need of) it was dirty and smelly! We payed a high price for this hotel, moreso than the lovely 4* hotels we had just come from and were appalled by the condition of this hotel. There was garbage (old crisp bags, cups, cigarette butts, dirt) on EVERY level on the lobbies and despite telling the dront desk, it was all still there the next day! The restaurant looked grubby and therefore we refused to eat there. The room smelt like a males lavatory and the was VERY dated, cramped and dingly. The sheets appeared clean but a little stained and the curtains hanging off the hooks. The bath tub was all cracked and therefore we refused to bathe in it, washing at the sink! I requested a room change and got 2 other rooms but they were just as bad, if not worse. The airport still advertises this hotel on billboards as being luxurious and not under renovation (see photo 1) but it certianly is not what you get (see other pics!) I WOULD NEVER RETURN TO THIS HOTEL - I am sure it will be better when renovations are complete but attitudes to cleanliness on lobbies/restaurant has put me off!
I stayed at the Miami International Airport hotel on a Saturday night in late November 2004 because I missed my flight, the last one back to Boston, due to an extremely long wait at immigration. It was NASCAR race weekend and it appeared this was the only hotel near the airport that had rooms available (even those at Miami Beach were fully booked). While most 3-4 star hotels in the vicinity charged $40-80 per night, they wanted $120 and didn't even offer discounts for distressed travelers or AAA members.
I wish we had checked tripadvisor before making reservations for this hotel. After a stressful family vacation we chose to spend one night here to try to reduce the stress of making the rest of our flight home. Upon landing in Miami at 6 pm, I received news of a death in the family, had to make new flight arrangements to attend the funeral and of course had new stress to deal with. There were no children's channels to entertain our small children while we made calls, but there are half a dozen with flight info on them. We were all looking forward to getting what rest we could. A few hours after finally falling alseep, the Evacuation Alarm went off, sending nearly everyone in the hotel into the hallways looking for a way out. The front desk said it was a false alarm and security said go back to sleep! It went off a second time about an hour later. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep or receive any type of compensation for the disruption, not even an apology!! I would welcome management response to this experience.
Do not stay here if you have any choice. The rooms are dingy and very old. The walls are paper thin. There is a stale cigarette smell throughout the hotel. The lounge beverages are really overpriced. I did not feel safe in this hotel. At 3am someone pulled the fire alarm, and we were forced to stand out on the outdoor airport arrivals area while the staff sauntered around trying to figure out what the alarm was for.
Although an unfortunate event, it did not add to my overall opinion of this hotel.
Unless the hotel has undergone MAJOR renovation, avoid it like the plague. There is only one reason to stay here: a 5 AM flight. At check-in, make sure that you have printed a copy of your confirmation WITH RATE or the front desk may try to double your rate. The decor is 20th century garage sale with peeling wallpaper accenting the torn bedding. If your lights work, then you'll be amazed at the patterns of the mildew growing on your tub and tile, facilitated by the heat since your A/C might be on the fritz again. One positive is the roof-top pool, spa, and sauna with his/her changing areas. The spa looked like it hadnt been cleaned since Ponce de Leon's last visit. The restaurant cuisine was just this side of prison food and room service would be timely to Rip Van Winkle. Better yet, sleep in the lounge chairs at the airport gate for the 5 AM flight: you'll save a ton, get just as good of night's sleep, and have access to better food.
