Great Place to Stay!! A review of SpringHill Suites Miami Airport South
I will start off recommending Amerisuites (Blue Lagoon) to any budget minded, but demanding traveller. After exhaustively comparing the hotel deals I got from Hotels, I chose AmeriSuites because it satified my original criteria: good price ($65 a night!), free parking, pool and breakfast. The breakfast, which went from 7:30 to 9:30 (Sat & Sun: from 8:30 to 11:30) was more than satisfactory for my taste: apple and orange juice, waffles, toast, breakfast cereal, flakes and fruit, and others. The rooms were new, large and very clean, consisting of 2 double beds, a breakfast nook, "living room" with pullout couch, bathroom, area for grooming, refrigerator, sink, cabinets and microwave. I was also impressed with the view overlooking a large lake (lagoon?). (Not all rooms had this view. Some rooms overlooked the airport. I would suggest someone booking a room to request the view of the lake). I was equally impressed with the other amenities, such as the 24-hour security officer, free transportation to/from the airport, the pool (which is HEATED and always open). A free box is available at the front desk for valuables, a laundry room and fitness center. Also available was a special internet center. At the back of the hotel, there is a section, where guests can relax and take in the view of the lake enjoying a barbeque. The room service was prompt, and like all other personnel, very friendly! The distance to MIAMi (beaches) is approximately 10 minutes (take SR-839 East from the hotel). In summary, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
