About 15 years BACK....

Pros: Location
This Hotel got stuck in time, somewhere around 1999, it never got over the Y2K syndrome. Equipment, furnishings, decor, MATTRESSES and dirt.... ALL from the past. Someone has fallen asleep at the wheel!!!

This is a real spot close to the beach.

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: The views, the parking, and the staff members were always friendly.
Cons: Not from my own point of view.
Location: Shopping a walking distance to the Central mall, restaurants, just the ride was good.
To be honest with you, I am a man who never goes with what other people say or do. What I read about this hotel was just the opposite. They were very professional even requested for a change of room, which they did in a timely manner. My room was always clean, bed change, fresh towels, I can really ask for more. This staff members goes beyond their duty to do their job without requesting. My stay was such a remarkable one. I will recommend anyone including my family members to come to this hotel. Let their language be your language Hahaha!!! Love u guys @ Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Miami Airport. We hope to come again.

Very good location but hotel very dirty

Posted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: Location and easy access to food, shopping, highways
Cons: Clean the rooms and hotel.
Location: Food, shopping.
Hotel was very dirty and the rooms are not cleaned. The bed is done daily but not well , that's about it. But the situation and accessibility of the hotel is very good and easy.

Simple hotel for short staying

Posted Apr 2, 2014
Was an OK hotel, they charges you per package sent to the hotel and you can take them out between 3-11. Hotel looks old but is ok. Staff was good on helping you as a customer.

Good for a short stay, located close to shopping.

Since my usual hotel was booked solid I needed to look for an alternative and ended up here for my 2 night stay. Positives: the hotel is conveniently located near to shopping,restaurants etc, reasonable rate. Room also had a microwave and fridge . Negatives:basic, could definitely use some refurbishment , better linens and towels that don't feel like sandpaper. Overall this hotel could work if you are in Miami / Hialeah for one or two days for shopping or business but don't expect anything special.

15-20 minutes from Airport!

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: The staff (most of them) where quite nice and very helpful!
Cons: Restaurant food was not good at all. Also, perhaps have the shuttle run to a few more places.
Location: 2 blocks from a small mall, a few restaurants about a mile away. Corner store across the street, we waited for 1 1/2 hrs for a cab didn't come!
The place is OK - restaurant isn't good at all. If you don't have a car very hard to get around, cabs do not like to go out there apparently. They have shuttle service (limited to airport and a small mall). But the staff are nice - right beside a freeway.

Far from airport, very very very few shuttle

Posted Mar 22, 2014
Pros: NO!!!!!!
Cons: SHUTTLE!!!! And the authenticity about the hotel information!!!
Location: south beach
We waited the shuttle more than 2 hours. and the shuttle didn't stop when it finally came! Even the driver saw us! Because they said it was full. It should be full since there is only one shuttle in 1.25 hours.Other hotels' shuttle is 20 minutes per shuttle. It needs more than 30 minutes from the airport and the shuttle only run between 6:00 am to 11:30 pm. If you have early or late flight, NEVER book this hotel!!!!! Otherwise you need to pay your taxi fee from the hotel to airport, which is more than 30 dollars. This building is very old and more than 40 years, and have strange smell in the room but it is okay. Think twice if you want to book this hotel, it doesn't worth the price!
