“Just ok...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

Stayed here two nights on business recently. As others have said the floors and elevator look a bit dingy. The floors are hardwood that either needs to be refinished or carpeting installed over top. The elevator seems quite old and is a bit slow. The room itself was adequate and seemed clean enough. The microwave and fridge were greatly appreciated. Breakfast was basic, with hard boiled eggs, bagels, yogurt, cereal, etc. There is a shopping center next door with restaurants, Winn Dixie, etc., which is very convenient. One issue I had was there does not seem to be any heat in the room. It was quite chilly at night and the a/c wouldn't switch to heat and actually shut down when I tried to turn up the thermostat. One of the employees had to come up and reset it. I know it's Miami, but it still gets cold sometimes!

This is a very busy area and traffic can be a real problem, but that is not the hotel's fault. Area seemed safe enough, although a few of the guests looked a little shady to me. They looked like day laborers. As a woman traveling alone, I was a little uncomfortable with that, but I personally did not have a problem. All in all, an ok stay, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to stay there again.

The Marriott Courtyard Miami Lakes was sold out so I gave LQ a try for a budget alternative. I would have gladly paid the extra $40 for the Marriott. Next time I will pay the difference and have 1) Updated room that doesn't resemble a barracks, 2) No closet sized bathroom with loud fan, 3) A/C that works - I had to manually shut off the window A/C since the wall control was broken, 4) no mini fridge that vibrated so loudly I had to shut it off. Noisy halls and paper thin walls.

The girls in the room across the hall, RM 304, cackled all night then started again at 5:00AM. Very loud and rude. I got up to see if there was coffee and the girls came out of the room… they were wearing La Quinta employee shirts. No class.

Breakfast is like a scene from Sheriff Joe Arapio's jailhouse. Internet works fine.

Very depressing for the price, worth about $66 / night or half the price.

My standards are obviously higher than those who would give this 'motel' more than 3 stars.

The hotel is in need of an upgrade as the hallways and rooms looked almost dingy. In the bathroom, the fan was very noisy and could hear the same problem with the room next door. As for the breakfast, it was very lackluster. If I had more time I would have went to McDonalds and I don't even eat fast food. All that was there was apples, bagel/bread, waffle, cereal, & hard boiled eggs. There has to be some more healthy choices available and definitely more options for variety. They even had pictures of pastries hanging up but alas none to eat.

Be more consider when it comes to early check in. The breakfast bar was terrible. The staff as a whole was very friendly. The rooms were clean. Don't like dogs walking around the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

I have stayed at this hotel in the past mostly because of the value, location (directly adjacent to my business needs) and the friendliness of the staff. The hotel itself is another matter. During my recent stay, I had to contend with a barking dog, spotty Wi-Fi signal and a less than clean room in need of remodeling. If La Quinta made an investment in this property, they would have an excellent property to meet the needs of business and pleasure travelers alike

This hotel was nice the employees were great at the Front Desk. The halls/elevator/floors were worn/dated. The room was clean however the wood floors in the bathroom area were worn. The breakfast was not that great there was no fruit or anything healthy to eat. We have stayed at LaQuintas before in other locations and they had very good breakfasts.
