No where's near airport.

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: Nothing, this room was a non refundable how could expedia book this hotel.
Cons: Clean, new carpet, new furniture, new lamps, new TV and clean bathrooms.
Location: far from airport, 20minutes on good time, over 30 during rush hours. Hotel reads Howard Johnsons Plaza Hotel Miami Airport???
Disgusting, dirty, far from airport, no one speaks English. In the middle of little Cuba. Old TV (tube} old furniture and broken lamps. Bathroom Black Mold everywhere, dirty tub, dirty sink. We were afraid to sleep under covers, had to sleep in clothes, on top of bed. Halls were stained carpet and disgusting walls. Someone even tried to get into our adjourning room door.

Worst hotel ever

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: The staff in the convenience store were nice and helpful.
I have never stayed in a more poorly maintained hotel in my life. From the dusty, dirty carpeted floors to the cigarette burned bed spreads. The cobwebs between the beds and the walls, the noisy un serviced air conditions, the intermittent house keeping service, the poorly trained front desk staff, the rude restaurant staff " can you imagine being bullied for a TIP! , After a poor meal, poor service and being presented with an incorrect bill!? Then renting death mobiles from the car rental in the lobby. I WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN NOR WILL I RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!

Our flight was overbooked so we arrived a day later. The ticket agent had already confirmed our reservations with the hotel but when we arrived the room was dirty and the bed was barely made. The hotel staff was also unfriendly. I will never visit this hotel again.
