    THIS IS NOT A HOTEL FOR A VACATION - IT IS NOT A RESORT- BUT IT IS A GOOD PLACE TO STAY!  ...I have used this hotel as a stop over point since the 1960's & my mother has statyed here since the 1950's...why?  It makes the most sense when traveling from the West coast to the Caribbean and South America, something we do often to see family.  This is a check-in, check-out, clean bed, hot shower kind of place...Easy check in- and perfect for the late fly in with an early fly out situation- reasonable rates..no need to catch a shuttle to an off-site location.  Walk out of customs and around the corner to the lobby!  The rooms are small.   I have stayed in the double queen room, king room & yes the dorm room sized single...all have been clean, tidy & comfortable.  Staff usually friendly..sometimes grumpy...AAA discount avilable on larger rooms- voucher for dinner or breakfast if you don't choose the AAA discount.    You do not hear the planes...but sometimes you here the late night or early morning guests struggling with their luggage in the hallways.  The restuarant on the 6th floor serves dinner late (will seat you until 11 p.m.) & breakfast early.  Over all the ease of this hotel out weighs the negatives...any seasoned traveler will tell you that.

    You really cant get more convenient then a hotel right inside the airport. Very small, perfect for single travelers or lay overs. Clean and nice staff. Haven't seen the "single" rooms but if you get the AAA discount, splurge for the queen room! All in all pleased with service and already have plans to stay here again.

    Convenient for long layovers, but make sure you understand how long distance calls are charged because they might become costly.

    I have stayed in many hotels in my life and never awakened with large contact dermatitis rashes and allergic sneezing fits until my stay last night at the MIA hotel. After checking in, my husband and I were  aghast and laughing at the dated decor, dirty bathroom with a utility flush mechanism, and rude hotel staff. But it wasn't until waking this morning that the full impact of staying there hit me with such physical force. Thank goodness for benadryl!
    My advice is the same as Jerry J---AVOID!!

    Compared to my hotel on Miami Beach a few weeks ago, the MIA Hotel was bliss.

    I booked a queen sized room (since it was the only thing left) since I was flying from the northwest to Miami then had to fly from Miami back to Amsterdam the next day.  I checked in at 10:30pm and still got downright pleasant and professional service.

    While my room was pretty small, everything was spotless and the bed was pretty comfortable (but then, I think anyplace you can stretch your legs is comfy after a full day of flying in cramped, packed seats).

    Only downside is I didn't have a "do not disturb" tag so I had housecleaning try to clean my room with me still in it 2x before I was ready to get up and check out the next day.

    Other than that, I'd be happy to use the MIA hotel again on future travels!

    This is a quirky old hotel in the airport, and looks like it was designed for overnight stays by the flight staff. The halls look like barracks, and the rooms are small. Parking was in the general airport lots.

    On the upside it is very convenient for catching your AM flight, has a decent restaurant, there are lots of other food options near the lobby, and there wasn't any noise from the airport.

    American Airlines put us in this hotel over night, it wasn't to far from the place you go to check you baggage and stuff, the hotel. Horrible, had a horrible smell, so small, maybe 14X10 the room size really small and most was the bathrooms. The walls were paper thin, the beds were comfy but I wouldn't stay here again. Nor do I plan too

    ok, so here's the deal: if you absolutely must stay at the MIA airport to catch a flight first thing in the morning, then this is a good place to stay. But set your expectations as low as you can: this place (probably) beats sleeping in a random terminal at the airport, but any other option aside from that is going to be nicer overall....  

    The hotel itself is in a good central location in the airport. It was not far from where we had to go for customs/immigration, etc. However that's pretty much where the positives end.

    Check in involved waiting in a very slowly moving line; they noted their computer systems were down and had to check all reservations manually. The staff at the desk were also dealing with desperate travelers insistently trying to get reservations despite their constantly announcing that they were full and unable to accommodate anyone who didn't already have a reservation...

    Once at the front of the line, check-in was relatively easy even with their computer problem. However I noticed a stack of flyers on the desk, which was a notice that all of the water for the hotel was being shut off for some maintenance issue after midnight (I think it was planned for midnight to 5am). I didn't hear the clerk mention this to anyone checking in as we waited, nor did she go out of her way to warn us about this -- I felt lucky to have noticed the flyers on the desk warning of the impending water shutoff.

    The room itself was small and not very clean. In the bathroom the kleenex box looked like someone had blown their nose in a huge wad of tissues and then replaced it in the top of the box -- you know how in fancier hotels they might make funky little patterns out of the top tissue in the box? Well here they just wad up a fistload of tissues and cram em in the top. I didn't actually check to see if they were used or not, but it was gross enough where using the cold-war era russian-grade 1-step-away-from-tree-bark toilet-paper to blow my nose seemed to be a better choice.

    The water was scalding hot that evening. But it was annoying not being able to just crash as we wanted to and then get up in the morning with a shower and then run to our next flight.

    To top it all off: no indication anywhere in the hotel re: check-out procedure. Called the front desk prior to leaving in the AM to try to make sure that we could just place our keys in the room and leave. No answer, phone rang for at least 2-3 minutes. We decide, the hell with it, we'll leave the keys and run -- and when we get downstairs we see not one, not two, but 3 hotel staff members standing around the front/concierge desk not obviously doing anything...

    Set your expectations low if staying here.  Remember that they're in business because they have a 'captive customer base' of desperate travelers.

    This hotel is horrid! Whoever gave it more  1 star must have had their eyes closed the entire time. Rude staff, old outdated small rooms, stained sheets, paper thin walls and doors are just a few things this dump has going for it. If there is anything as a plus it is convenient being right inside the airport but that's it!
    Im giving it 1 star because Yelp wont let me add this review otherwise AVOID AVOID AVOID

    The front desk staff was pleasant when we checked in late. We had some travel difficulties and were very accommodating, which I suppose should be expected from an airport hotel.

    The room was modest and clean, with a very large TV (not that we used it, though). But the bathrooms! Wow! Either they're an engineering marvel or someone's in trouble...

    The showers had a unique feature that if anyone, anywhere in the hotel flushed a toilet: they spray pure hot water. Very useful in reminding you that taking hot showers are wasteful and to hurry up! The drain also...didn't drain. As you look down at the rapidly rising water, you can't help but think after 17 hours of traveling: wow, that came off of ME?!?! The shock of realizing what I was sending into our precious ecosystem was profound indeed. After half an hour, the water finally drained, leaving grubby reminders of my travel filth streaked on the otherwise clean tub. This delay gives you ample time to enjoy the homemade steam room you've created, because there is no working fan, while sitting on a toilet that was clearly reclaimed from a 1940's grade school. Clearly, this was a recycling move done to offset the damage my shower caused to the environment. Very, very Eco-savy.

    Although not a great place, the convenience is impossible to beat and for what it is: an Airport Hotel, it hits the mark just fine. If I had another layover of more than a few hours, I definitely pay the "hourly" rate and get a room again. Maybe just not take a shower.

    DO NOT stay here! Rooms not worth the price. Walls to thin, rooms to small,
    and overall condition was appalling. The restaurant in the hotel wasn't quite as bad. Food was just okay.

    I'm still trying to get my $231 back for the room I never got to stay in... No lobby, no luggage check, rooms rented by the hour (eww!!) Don't even try to cancel with the front desk unless you are a trial attorney or have a badge. They will not take your cancellation and will change their story when Visa investigates your dispute.

    Don't book a room here, ever. Sleeping on the floor is a better experience.

    The ONLY good thing about this place is it's convenient.
    That being said...the room was so small you couldn't get around the bed. My husband thought I had booked a hostel instead of hotel.
    Room needs major updates. Halls smelled old.
    Nasty long black hair on floor.
    Clogged tub with soap scum ring.
    No fitted sheet on bed just a flat sheet wrapped around the mattress.
    Dangerous blow dryer unit from 70's right above toilet so you are guaranteed to get electrocuted.

    Gets 3 stars for the fact that its the easiest place to stay if you have an overnight at MIA and is not ridiculously overpriced for that convenience (with kids and grandparents in tow, that was the primary criteria for staying here).  If that were not a factor I am sure there are much better options immediately off-site from the airport.  Skip the restaurant (but it'll do if you have vouchers for breakfast and don't want to pay airport prices elsewhere... but if you don't mind spending the $, go elsewhere...)  Presently under renovation so hopefully it'll be nicer when that is complete.

    I can only add my comment on the staff. As far as the renovation that was mentioned by other reviews, I can only assume it is still not complete because one of the elevator doors was missing its panels (pictures to follow). My husband and I were delayed and left to our own devices by American Airlines' Inefficiency and lack of customer service (whole another story). I went to the MIA hotel site, and thought we might stay there and when I found the the registration desk, a young lady and a gentleman was behind the desk. Have you ever had an uneasy felling that you are not wanted? Yeah, I felt that way, I stood for a time and neither of them wanted to make eye contact. Finally, JENNIFER, reluctantly acknowledges me (still not making eye contact), how can I help you? (with a tone that does not convey any desire to help). I asked if they accepted my lodging membership card at which point she responded with "what is that, oh, no we don't do any if that, we have no room available." (I was surprised it wasn't followed by in Living Color's famous Z snap). I responded with "that explains a lot". If they cared to know what I meant (which I doubt), I would have explained that "you can measure a person's true character by the way they treat others during times of abundance not during their times of lack..."

    Look, this place is anything but spectacular, and for that, it fits into the Miami airport ecosystem quite well.

    So what do you get if you stay here: a decent enough room, an okay bed, and a location if you're stranded in the airport because you missed a connection that is hard to beat. Staff thought was super nice, shower was fine, and so maybe my standards are low, but it beat sleeping in the airport.

    I've had a couple experiences around Miami Airport hotels, and this one is fine, it just won't pamper you or anything which in my circumstances, I wasn't asking for anything more than what I got! ;)

    Here's what's good about this hotel: It's right inside the airport terminal.

    The rest -- not so great. Nothing BAD per se, just very underwhelmed.

    There's almost no signage, so you're likely to miss it. And I mean NO signage, at least from the street level.

    I needed a day-rate room for a few hours to kill time, and the clerk at first didn't understand what I meant (language barrier). The rate was $98 but she brought it down to $75 without me asking because they were testing the fire system later. This is a pretty fair rate.

    The room is about as basic as it can get and not particularly relaxing. But the shutters (yes, shutters) do block out light well. The door was broken and the only way to get it to close securely was to slam it with all your force, probably waking up guests staying miles away. As well, the door lock only worked one out of about five times. If I hadn't tried a number of times, I'd have had to go back down to the lobby.

    The "sushi bar" in the lobby bar didn't exist. And the "lobby bar" itself was literally a little kiosk sticking out into the terminal itself. Food menu was dirty and very basic and, although the chicken had some gristle and fat, it was cooked reasonably well. I mean, how bad can you mess up chicken fingers?

    I literally couldn't find this lobby bar because it was so tiny so I asked the concierge, who couldn't seem to care to give me the time of day. "Where is your lobby bar?" He grunted "Here" without pointing or anything. I still didn't understand so he pointed to it and rolled his eyes at me. Classy.

    Checkout was painless, though the staff didn't seem to be able to answer a basic airport question "Which terminal does Air Canada fly out of?"

    All in all, it was okay for its purpose -- a dark, quiet room and a clean bed. If I were staying overnight, I'd pick somewhere else.

    Also, you need to use the airport's paid Wifi as this hotel doesn't have its own.

    walls are paper thin

    Bed sagged

    absolutely impossible to adjust the A/C.  It either blew hot or cold.  Nothing in between.

    If you want a good nights sleep go someplace else.

    Other reviews seem a bit off.  We checked in and checked out without any issues.  The room was absolutely silent.  I never heard a plane nor anyone in the hallway.  The room was clean, the bed comfortable.  Yes, they are still going renovations, but that was in the lobby.

    Even the restaurant was fine.  We had dinner and the free breakfast the next morning.  If you have an early flight out of MIA, this is very convenient.

    --On the good side: it's right in the airport.
    --On the not-so-good side, there's no desk chair, only a backless ottoman to sit on; if you pile up some pillows on it, you can sit at a usable height.
    --Also on the not-so-good side, WiFi is free, but flaky, dropping out regularly.
    --On the really bad side, the shower is horrible. Water pressure is little more than a dribble, temperature cycles all on its own from freezing to scalding and back, the shower head itself is mounted on a vertical bar with a frictionless gripper, so it slides on its own down to waist height (pro tip: tie it to the top with a knotted washcloth).

    I had a layover so I decided to stay at the MIA Hotel. Arrived at the lobby at 11:25pm and all I wanted after a long day of flying was check-in, take a shower and go right to sleep. There were a couple of others waiting to check-in but the staff were outstanding and did a great job. I was upstairs by 11:32pm. So what do you expect of the room? Me, all I needed was a shower and a bed. That´s what I got and I had a good night sleep. If you´re looking for a fancy room you might want to look for a different hotel. If you´re having a layover and just want to spend a night then this is the perfect choice. I stayed here twice already and have always received great service by their staff. It´ll make me come back if I only stay a night.

    The only reason we stayed here is because it is literally in the airport. we were told we would not be charged until we checked out and the card was merely on hold. Nope!!!
    when asked to split the bill when we checked out the front desk person said with attitude that we had already been charged. Not sure if it was just us but everyone we dealt with in this airport was beyond miserable and impolite.

    This place is pretty run down, some nice features, like the bathrooms are new, but the other furnishings aint much. No cable. Also no food available after a certain hour so when the airport is also closed you are pretty much screwed for a decent meal while in transit. For the price I would take the bus somewhere nearby for a better experience.

    Horrible experience, if you can avoid this hotel do! No room service at night. We were told "subway is open". Then there's a huge pilar in the middle of the bed room that makes it impossible to get around to the side of the bed. Climate in the rooms is either penguin breeding cold or lobster boiling hot. Internet access is awful, not only slow but it bumps you off every 15 minutes and requires you to continue to login over and over. And to top it off don't count on the free breakfast, which has 4 basic items on the menu: cold cereal, fruit, eggs, or oatmeal, unless you plan on waiting over an hour to get it. We literally sat there for over 20 minutes in an empty room with 3 waitress and a hostess without them taking our order or serving coffee or anything. Waitress's were walking around aimlessly without serving us. Bottom line terrible, awful experience.

    Don't have much of a choice when you connecting flight doesn't make it. But when the airlines compensates it, you can't complain too much.
    Decent looking room, fairly clean.
    TV Remote doesn't work well, so channel surfing is frustrating.
    Fairly clean bathroom but very simple. The shower last night did not have any hot water but it the morning the water was at least warm. The drain was incredibly slow which was very disturbing. The low counter shelf hits the top of the faucet, probably not the best choice of design. It does provide a hairdryer and shaving mirror.
    The bed was creaky but clean and fairly comfortable. Again, don't have high expectations. The room was a little cool and the temperature wasn't adjustable despite the knobs.
    Hallways were noisy when people were walking through it but it wasn't too highly trafficked.
    It does offer free internet but I guess so does the airport.
    One thing worth pointing out, if you are a light sleeper, this place has no windows so the room is fairly dark without the lights. It's helpful to get over jet lag but make sure to set an alarm so you do wake up and not miss your next flight!

    I am not a picky person at all, but this place needs some work, updating etc.  My first gripe is I love sunshine and natural ambient light, It only had one small window, maybe two feet wide and 3 feet high.  

    Second, there was a connecting door to adjoining room and we could quite clearly hear the other tenants as well as very loud occasional bangs from above, it literally sounded like someone hitting a wall with a mallet, this even happened when we were sleeping around 11pm.  The doors to hall have a gap under them which we could hear people conversating up and down the hall most of the night, until around 2am.  

    The bathroom, first thing I noticed as mentioned in another review was long stringy black hair on the floor, so that obviously tells me the floors were not cleaned in the bathroom, very unsanitary in my opinion.  Also the shower, the water would get to perfect temp. but should anybody else in the hotel flush a toilet, it scalded you.  I had to turn shower head to side and only use when needed, even then if you stand in it for more than 15 seconds you will get scorched.

    I guess we were lucky as the king bed room we stayed in was very spacious about 7 to 10 feet from bed to any walls.

    I would stay here out of necessity in traveling, but if I have the time to burn and don't have to rush, I would definitely stay elsewhere for the price.

    ... ooooooooh-kaaaaaaaay staaaaaaay, I´d saaaaaaaay ...

    Not much to write home about, but if you happen to be left stranded at MIA, this is the place to get some hours of sleep to face the challenge of this airport´s Queue Craziness next morning. If you miss a connecting flight and have to stay overnight, your airline will provide you with vouchers for accommodation and meals. Dinner vouchers will be to the value of 20 and breakfast vouchers of 10 USD. Not enough to stuff yourself at the expense of your airline, but feel free to order what you like and just pay the difference out of your own pocket.

    All meals are served at the hotel´s "Top of the Port Restaurant" on 7th floor. My burger with chips was disappointing, to say the least. Never had a burger overloaded with white cabbage before! That burger was a salad in its previous life, I guess! I do not know what the chips were in their previous lives since they seemed to have never been anything but dead ;OD! But my bagel came with a surprisingly generous amount of really good cream cheese in the morning ... it saved a bit of the restaurant´s honour!

    Well, I was totally fine with my clean bathroom and sheets and the comfiness of my bed. Helped a lot to ignore my dinnertime disappointment and the room´s uttermost plainness and lack of view. Complimentary toiletries are a nice touch if your luggage with your beauty case inside got swallowed by MIA.

    Do not look a gift horse to closely in the mouth ... only if you want to avoid getting another gift horse of that kind ;O)!
