Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Miami International Airport
We stayed 4 2 nights and it wasnt a pleasent experience at alll. First, the hotel was very noisy not only for being near to the airport but also for being next to the highway. Second, rooms and hallways had a funny and heavy smell. Third, the carpets of the entire place were in a very bad condition. The location was great though.
Two nights at the Days In International Airport
We actually stayed twice at this motel. We stayed March 29th as we arrived in Miami and April 11th just before we departed. The hotel iks average in cleanliness considering the price. They do have free internet service. The front desk is helpful and the shuttle service to the airport is nice. The hotel is well priced. The main problem with the hotel is the location adjacent to a highway. If your room is on the north or west side you may find the road noise unbearable. |It is difficult to open the window at night My wife found it worse than I did. She couldn 't sleep. We stayed the second night beacuse we had asked for a room not facing the highway, however, the west side is noisy as well. The front side of the hotel is quieter.
Unreasonable refund policy
Had pre-paid reservations through Lodgings for 1-29-05. Got stranded in Atlanta International Airport at 9 pm on arrival date due to an ice storm. Connecting flight to Miami cancelled. Neither Lodgings nor Days Inn will consider request for refund because I didn't meet their 24 hour cancellation policy. Poor customer service by both companies.
Clean and Cheap
I stayed at the Days Inn on Friday, 1/28/05 and Tuesday, 2/1/05. Be sure to call the hotel as soon as you get your bags, because otherwise they won't come and pick you up. There are 3 Days Inn vans that come by. Make sure that you get the right one. The first night, the driver was crazy! It only takes about 10 minutes to get to the hotel. The room was nicer than I expected. It looks like they've been rennovating the rooms. There's no "official" room service. The restaurant is not associated with the hotel. There was "Reggeton" music on Friday night and Salsa on Wednesdays.
Comfortable, Not Posh
We're staying at the Days Inn at 7250 NW 11 Street for a couple of nights. THERE ARE NO BALCONY UNITS HERE. Please, Reviewers, make sure you have the correct facility before posting negative experiences because TripAdvisors is the travelers' bible.
The outward appearance of this motel doesn't do the rooms justice. We were disappointed when pulling in and then pleasantly surprised with our room (kind of a Jekyll/Hyde thing going on). It's spacious, clean, nicely appointed with some amenities like a fridge and microwave. There's a granite countertop in our bathroom. Not posh but comfortable. The parking area is fenced and staffed with a security guard. We (and our car) felt safe. There is a restaurant right next door which made mealtime convenient.
Very happy with our choice. Would recommend it.
ONE CAUTION: If you stay here, DON'T order food from vendors that shove flyers under room doors. These vendors aren't authorized by Days Inn to provide food services. We paid $27.00 for a minimal order. When the food came, it wasn't fit for consumption by any living thing. Two shakes came. It looked like they'd been sitting around for quite some time as they were melted and came complete with a curdling froth on top. Yuk!
Requested our money back. Vendor told us there are no refunds and starting yelling and cussing at us, including the "f" word. We called the police. Found out later from management that this is the biggest scam going at airport motels now. These vendors aren't licensed and sometimes prepare food from their homes or garages. There's a sign at the reception desk warning customers. We, of course, didn't read it when checking in. Told the manager we called the police. He said there are stacks of reports. After the police investigate, the "company" comes up with a new name, gets a new cell number, prints a new flyer, and is back in business the next day. We were victimized.
Avoid this place
My sister-in-law and I stayed here pre-cruise in January 2005. The shuttle driver from the airport was surly and drove like a maniac. The room was musty smelling, the box springs were badly stained, the bathroom was dirty, and the food in the almost non-existent buffet breakfast ($8.95) was mostly cold. We were told the 11 a.m. shuttle to the Port of Miami was full and we'd have to take the 1 p.m. shuttle. When we asked about staying in the room an hour beyond the 11 a.m. checkout, we were told we'd have to pay for a half day! We took a cab instead. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
This motel gave me a bad feeling as soon as we drove up. It was poorly lit and there were many guests hanging out on their balconies watching as we unloaded our luggage. Once we got into our room, we found a dingy musty smelling room. It was in need of updating. The one positive was that it was very quiet however I would not stay here again.
I'm giving this hotel an above average rating because the quality was better than I expected for the price. I stayed there in October 2003 before a cruise and will be staying again in January 2005 (along with 9 other people!). It isn't fancy but it is clean and you can't beat the free shuttle from the airport and to the port. If you'd rather save your money to spend on the cruise, I'd recommend this hotel as a great, inexpensive pre-cruise hotel.
Great overnight stay
I stayed at this hotel overnight but had a great time! the pick up driver was very engaging and courteaous treated me like family. the front desk staff especially georg martinek was exceptionally accomodating to my needs upon telling them i just arrived from an overnight flight from rio de janeiro. i surely will recommend this hotel to any savvy traveller!
A "good sleep"
Stayed there prior to cruises in January 2002 and September 2003. The fact I voluntarily chose to return shows the hotel "worked" for me.
Restaurant (airline-themed) on premises. Free shuttle from airport/free shuttle to Port of Miami. While the hotel is hardly the fanciest, the beds were comfortable (since my flights were 6-8 hours...I had little desire to do more than eat/sleep). Room quiet/heat worked well.

The island tour included millionaires row- which was all the rich and famous' houses, and showed us all the other islands and they explained that they are all man made except Miami beach and are very very expensive!

It was nearly 90F today - warm especially when two weeks ago at the snow, I thought 40F was really nice. The sun was strong and menacing but South Beach was beautiful. I now understand why its so popular with its white sandy beaches, emerald water and hot babes everywhere. Its a very cool place. The main drag, Ocean Dr, is lined with restaurants and bars serving the hugest cocktails I've seen. Everyone was out in their bikinis ...

When we arrived in Lima airport, we went straight to the staff travel office and tried to check in, only to be told the flight to Miami was similarly oversold, and we were number 11 on the list. We were asked to come back at 11.30, so in the meantime I went to the American Airlines office enquiring about flights. They didn't have ...

There were a lot of Cubans and Columbians here. Though I didn’t spot any suspicious little bags of white powder. Just a hooker or two leaving in the mornings from the hotels.
I think people throw their cars away after two or three years here too. Not an old dunger in sight.
