Great Value and great service!
I stayed at this hotel for two nights and it was great, considering the price. Staff helped with directions, and gave great dinner recomendations for both nights. We used the courtesy shuttle and it was a pleasure, great hotel and great price.
What you would expect for the price - no great shakes
Stayed here for 2 nights in March 2005. Staff were fairly unhelpful and did not seem particularly interested in attending to you, even when you were queuing to be seen - for example - whilst I was trying to check in the desk assistant took two personal telephone calls, making me wait until she had finished before continuing to check us in.
Our room was what we expected - very soft beds, basic bathroom and facilities. On the first day our toilet blocked up on first use and on reporting this to staff, their response indicated this was a very regular occurence and they sent someone up immediately to unblock it. You definitely get the feeling the place is ready to fall down around your ears but hey, its cheap.
The pool areas is very nice and large, though adjacent to a major route so not at all relaxing. But if you are staying here to kill time before moving on to your next destination it is a good way to fill the day.
All in all, if you want cheap and basic - this is your place. I stayed the previous year at nearby Red Roof Inn and comparing the two, Red Roof is much better and actually about the same price - Days Inn add on tax and a charge for the room safe when you check out, which increases your overall bill by around £5 ($10) per night. Red Roof have no hidden charges so are better value
I Have Never Been Treated So Rudely
This motel has a terribly rude night manager. There were 4 of us staying in one room. The first day, we had no wash clothes. We were told they were out of them. The second day, we were given 2 towels and 2 wash clothes for 4 people. The night manager informed us that if we needed wash clothes so bad that the restaurant attached to the motel sold them. When we asked for additional plastic cups, he told us to "share". The service was so poor that we cancelled our last night's reservation and went elsewhere. Days Inn says they don't own this particular motel. It is a franchise. Seems to me they wouldn't want the Days Inn name connected with this place.
Decent Chain Hotel
The Sleep Inn was typical of chain hotels of this variety. The room was medium sized, newish, and well kept. The staff was helpful. The location was close to the airport and (hard to find) rental car return. Although we didn't use it, the pool area was large and looked great, but was open to the parking lot so there would be no sense of seclusion. Nearby restaurants were of the chain variety and required a short drive. Unfortuately, our flight was too early for us to take advantage of the continental breakfasts usually available at Choice Hotels, with which we have been pretty pleased in the past.
Perfectly fine for the money
We stayed at this Days Inn in the middle of February 2005. It was much more conveniently located than I expected, literally just north of airport and easy access to main roads and highways. The front desk service was fine, although service was very slow. We requested a room change because the first one we got was on the busy street side.
The room we ended up with was bare bones, but it was clean and serviceable. I was worried it would be bug-laden or dirty, but it was none of those things, and all in all, it was perfectly fine. The money we saved allowed us to rent a car (which I think is a must in Miami. Public transit doesn't seem that accessible).
This place, although it looked 'okay' (for the price) from the outside, was a complete dump on the inside. I knew it was a 2-star and wouldn't be anything great, but I figured we were safe with a national chain such as Days Inn. This place was gross. I didn't even want to walk around with bare feet in our room and the bathroom gave me the 'heebie jeebies'. As if that weren't bad enough, the doors in the rooms adjacent to ours were creaky and every time they were opened, it sounded like somebody was coming into our room. Additionally, and I can't say whether this is the norm or not, the other guests at the hotel were apparently there to stay up all night, talking and laughing loudly/partying, beeping horns, opening and closing their room doors and causing a general ruckus. We were completely unable to sleep and left feeling nasty and over-tired. In summary, this place ------. I will never ever stay at another Days Inn again! Yuck!
P.S. There are plenty of nicer looking hotels on LeJeume Road - I would check those out. Even at several dollars more a night, it would be worth it.
About What We Expected
Spent the night at this hotel before leaving for our cruise. Some minor problems, but nothing that wasn't taken care of immediately. We knew from the start that for what we were paying compared to other hotels in the area, we were basically getting a room with a bed, with not too much more. The shuttle was a little difficult catching from the airport as there were many Days Inn shuttles going by and you didn't see the address until the van was almost past us because it was written on the side, probably waited about 30 minutes, not all that bad. Shuttle driver was very polite and gave a narrated tour as he drove us to the hotel. Got to the hotel and didn't seem as bad as the reviews had made it out to be. One in our group sat on the edge of their bed and one leg fell out from under it , but the hotel immedietly moved them to a much nicer room. Our room was no problem, so I decided then and there I would write a great review when I got home. Next morning....problem...we got up approx 6 am to take our showers, go to breakfast and leave...and the shower didn't work. Barely a drizzle coming out of the shower nozzle, called the front desk and they had someone there within 15 minutes to look at it. Took them over an hour to get someone there to fix it, so needless to say, we got to our cruise ship without showers. At checkout, they did take 20% off our bill for the inconvience. Did I let this spoil my complete vacation? No way! There is a reason some hotels are so much less expensive and I feel we got what we paid for. If I wanted a luxury hotel, I would have paid for one. Our group booked five rooms there and the only problems we had were the bed and the shower.
Hotel from hell-terrible desk service
I pre-booked and had to stay 4 days. I was shocked at the miserable treatment given to travellers. I was told by the airport shuttle driver and by a member of the hotel staff more than once that "I don't speak English" when asking directions or for help. (Spanish is spoken). The staff were miserable and uncommunicative, basically unprofessional. This confirmed by another tourist staying there. NOT RECOMMENDED. I would like to take it off the internet.
Pitiful service and accomidations
This is truly a horrible place to stay. The shuttle driver was rude from the airport to the hotel, be sure to wear a seatbelt as their driving is less than safe. On a better note the driver on the next day to the Port of Miami was somewhat polite. The room did smell and it was dirty. Trash in the drawers, negative comment cards from other guests are left behind for you to see. They don't care at t his place what you think. The pool was closed, probably a good thing. Ants in the room.
Bathroom was filthy, be sure to stand in the shower and don't bother leaving a tip for the maid because they come early and look annoyed if you haven't checked out by 9:00 AM. Ours did not deserve a tip. Overall my experience around the Miami airport was the worst ever anywhere that I've travelled. I'm glad that I don't live or work around the Miami airport as 9 out of 10 people act snotty and don't seem to have any manners or work ethic.
We stayed at the above Day's Inn and definitely would not recommend this place to anyone. We had so much trouble with the Manager, we ended up staying at the Holiday Inn. This man would not listen to reason even when presented with the proof and at one point even called us dumb for waiting for their "free shuttle" and not calling a cab. Numerous,numerous other things were presented to the manager with no satisfaction. The rooms smelled musty which he told us was not his fault! (Then who's fault is it?), the front desk clerk was rude (he said she was not on duty that day!) Everything we said to him, he disputed by lying.

When Jeremy came back from dropping off the kids we all piled into the car and headed down the highway to Miami.
It took us about an hour to get down there. First stop was a park near the water and we played on the playground and had a walk around. Dad and Jeremy sat on a bench and had a cousin chat and we walked with a Mum and Katie around the waterfront to a Al's Frozen Lemonade stand. It was so delicious.
Then we drove down to Billy Bagg's Florida State ...
... of lit up skies and light shows. Disney World is indeed a magical place, filled with nothing but childhood dreams and happiness, and I’m very happy we managed to squish two days of utter euphoria in our Springbreak schedule. The same shuttle took us back to Miami at 5 am on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, this time the driver had to pick up a lot more people than on the way there, so the journey took 7 hours. Sophie stayed in Orlando for another day because she ...
This morning was our first early start since leaving Melbourne. With over 3000 passengers on the cruise ship I was keen to get moving and not be stuck forever getting off. So we left at 7.00 and were in a cab to the airport by 7.30. Miami airport is huge and was sooo busy, had hoped to get onto an earlier flight but they were totally booked ( or overbooked), so by the time ...
... So at least I'll get to LA. Fingers crossed for the next bit xxxxxx Thought I'd let you know I made it to LA and I am booked on the flight. I have boarding pass all the way to Auckland. Whether my luggage arrives is another matter. My calf is still very tight and I'm limping but not as bad as I was. The walk from terminal 2 to their international one was interesting..... But I'm here and just cant wait to get on the plane and hopefully get some sleep ...
... everyone. I took a great nap. I am ready to land.
Raymond - Almost there now! Just filled out the customs forms, so far it's already been amazing, great group and the spirit is just amazing. Can't wait to be there, only thing left is a bus drive. I'm very proud to be an ambassador and help all the children!
Alison - and so it begins. Nervous and excited.
Ilona: so curious now. Let's get ...
