... up, leaving us with a reduced shopping time at Sawgrass Mills.
Luckily our cases were stowed away in the coach and we were able to leave our hand luggage in the bus and off we trotted around the mall.
Sawgrass Mills is immense, especially when you only have two hours and the driver wasn’t going to wait a second beyond the rendezvous time. I was on a mission to find some new jeans as my favourite old soft, comfie ones had finally waved a weary flag ...

Whenever I had customers in front of me, I always did my utmost to handle them as efficiently as possible so that I could have them out of the store and move onto the next customer. I never had personal conversations in front of them either. When I was on the job, I was on the job and the customer had my full attention. Everything else had ...
I landed at Missing In Action airport (MIA). Very tired and very hungry, content in my knowing that I had eight hours here to nap and graze on some **** food. But then I saw that there was a flight for Bogota leaving in 30 minutes. If I didn't try for it, I would be getting in after dark and at least as tired as I was when I got into Miami. Hoping to avoid a first ...

All you needed was to carrying a lamb with a few kids in tow, gazing adoringly up at you, and I am sure that all the sicke and lame would have sought you out and tried to touch you.

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Miami Airport North Miami Springs
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
