The Howard Johnson was a pretty nice stay. The flyers I found under the door everyday was annoying but it was quiet and nice!! The rooms was clean even tho the first day my sink was clogged but they fixed it right way!! I would recommend this place to stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Centrally located for shopping"
My stay was well spent and worth the cost . The room was spacious,cleaned and freagranced and the day when I had the" Do Not Distrub sign", a note was left by the door indicating that if the need arose for fresh towels and the like I just needed to contact Front Desk before 2 o clock. That was very encourageding and I will recommend this hotel to my […] friends.Was not keen on breakfast in the lobby area . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was clean and well kept. The floor where we were staying at (third floor) was awful. It was dirty, with stains all over, looked like it had not been cleaned in months. Deep carpet stains, and just over all dirty. The free internet was awful. I called the support number and told that there was nothing they could do, as there were too many people […] logged on, and the wireless router did not have the capacity to handle the demand. They simply told me to log on at a later time. I will never stay at a Howard Johnson Hotel again. Jay Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"NOt as expected"
The hotel is about 10 miles from the airport. The lobby area is decent but the rest of the hotel was in pretty bad shape. Worn and stained carpets, old elevators and no free breakfast. Shuttle service to the airport is not efficient. The hotel was packed and one out of three elevators was out of order. We had booked a king sized room but when we checked […] in they said they didnt have one available and gave us 2 double beds instead. What's the point of booking then?Pros: Room and bathroom sizes are a decent size. Onsite restaurant is nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For a no smoking hotel the hallways ate really smoky. I encountered three different odors the lobby being the most pleasant. There were stains on the bed covers which were changed within minutes. There were stains in the carpet a dirty footprint in the tub. I made reservation for three people in my room but was given two towels and had to ask for a […] third upon arrival. I've stayed in many hotels as I travel at least once a year and I will not return to this one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient but needs refreshing."
We only stayed one night in transit. The main disappointment was the cleanlness and condition of the plant. While the beds and towels were OK, the carpets in the corridors and in the rooms weren't very clean, so we all kept on our shoes. The towel rack in my room was rusty, and the sink had cracks. The location is quite convenient with easy access to […] the mall and Walmart and restaurants, and the shuttle worked well for both pick up and drop off at the airport.

"Great Place to Stay"
The service was great and efficient. Airport pickup and drop off was convenient and timely, The staff was courteous and cared about your stay. They have a good shuttle service to Westland and Walmart and a paid service to other places. There is a bus stop close by making it easy to shop along 49th street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location, but a bit noisy"
The hotel is location is great. Not far from the airport. Most places are 30min drive away. The bad thing is that the hotel is next to a highway, which make your hotel room a little bit noisy, but you will get used to it. You can also have packages delivered to the hotel, which is great. The service was ok. I think the price should have been 15 dollars […] less per night. But overall the experience was ok. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Gross hotel, poor location, very nice staff"
Hotel is in the middle of nowhere (not near airport). Although, there is a shuttle to the airport once every hour or so. About a $60 cab ride from south beach. Maid kept banging on our door telling us checkout was at 11am even though we got a late checkout (1pm) from front desk. Bathroom in room was disgusting. Beds were alright. Lady at front desk […] was amazing and very helpful. Internet was brutal. Could barely load facebook/email/ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"About 15 years BACK...."
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!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
The bed could be larger and the hotel could offer a breakfast included at the price. At least for me, it wasn'tGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"This is a real spot close to the beach."
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good location but hotel very dirty"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Hotel needs a facelift - it's old and worn out and for an "airport" hotel it's 7 miles away - didn't pay much - but if I did I'd feel like I got ripped off - kudos to the concierge and staff but the hotel needs a renovationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple hotel for short staying"
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.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Far from airport, very very very few shuttle"
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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not an Airport Hotel"
The hotel says it has a airport shuttle but it runs on a limited schedule and not after 11 PM and not before 6 AM. I arrived after 11 PM and needed to be at the airport at 5Am . When I arrived at the airport and colled the hotel they informed me of this and I asked for a refund and they said no. The taxi round trip coat me $65 . The manager did not […] care. Please do not stay and this old shabby hotel that miss leads you to believe in is near the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Misleading advertising for shuttle service"
I chose this hotel because the website said shuttle service was provided, but I waited at the airport for 35 minutes without seeing the hotel shuttle. When I called the hotel, I was told it would be an hour before the next shuttle would show up. On top of that, the shuttle service did not start early enough in the morning for me to make my flight. I […] ended up spending over $70 on transportation to and from the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Next to gigantic highway overpass"
We forfeit our money for the entire four days and left. The hotel, drab at best, is located on the off-ramp of a major elevated highway and the constant noise is maddening. Avoid this place if you have the choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Do not let the remodeled lobby fool you ... this building is in disrepair and dirty. stains on the carpet and furnishings, very dusty baseboards and mildew smelling bathroom. broken ice maker & broken remote control for old CRT television ... caution tape surrounding closed swimming pool.

"Very POOR value"
I had an overnight layover in Miami on my way to Nicaragua, which is, mind you a 3rd world country. This Howard Johnson was the filthiest, most expensive and unfriendly place I stayed over a two week getaway. I regularly had 4 star accommodations for less than $50/night in Nicaragua - clean, great service, breakfast included. This HoJo cost $160 for […] the night, and while the front desk staff was friendly enough, I didn't feel very welcome at all; on a related note, don't bother bringing tip money for the shuttle driver - he really hates his job. We were allowed some below Folger's quality coffee for free, but for $160 I think we should have got some Costa Rican blend and some fresh fruit along with someone to carry our luggage around. I would not stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Are You Kidding Me???"
We reserved a room with a queen bed. The bed was a double, and filthy! When we called the front desk, they said they would get the manager and call me back. 30 minutes later no call back. So I called again, got the manager and he said they were all booked up and that we had a queen bed, well I have a queen bed at home and No It Wasnt a queen bed in […] the hotel, he had the guts to say thats what is a queen bed in this hotel. Im sorry that the term Queen Bed is a STANDARD SIZE an in no way shape or form was this a queen, besides, it was still filthy. They made no effort to clean the room in the hour plus we were there. We had to argue with them to get cancelled and to have no charge given to our card. Absolutely AWFUL! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked the King Penthouse. As soon as we arrived, we noticed the carpet stained, and the Chair in even worse condition. The room felt like a 1 star hotel, not like a penthouse. We called Hotels.Com and they refunded us and we moved. Thanks hotels.com. The other rooms may be better, but the penthouse in a 3 star hotel it is not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel smelled really bad - musty and smoky. Bathroom was not clean. Front staff was good at check in but that is the only thing this hotel has going for it. The lounge was outdated and the staff was super slow even though we were one of the only groups of people in the lounge. Overall - would not recommend this hotel to anyone!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great for the price and the location was ideal. Close to the airport and good shopping nearbyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Our stay in March 1-3 in Florida was fine."
Our stay was a good value. We didn't hear any noises outside of our room-outdoors and other guests. the comfort level met all expectations. The food in the restaurant was only fair and over priced but that is very common. We only ate there once. All of the employees were very helpful and pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not as advertised"
Since my trips are working trips, I always ask for hotels that provide free breakfast, or breakfast included in the price of the room. I found out in the dining facility that my room did not include breakfast. The woman at the front desk explained that Expedia gives great room rates, but never includes the breakfast in the price of the room. Other disappointments […] were the dirty looking carpet in the room, the smell of cigaretts, and the mold in the bath. I'll not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"B grade hotel to stay in"
We had a layover in Miami and booked this hotel for a over night stay. I specifically checked before booking whether they had airport pickup, it said yes. Well we reached Miami at 11:30 PM and waited for half hour before we took the cab. The security at the airport said that these guys specifically are very bad with shuttle frequencies. We saw shuttles […] from all other hotels go by thrice in the half hour we waited. Finally, we took at cab and it cost us $35.00 one way (its far)... after reaching we asked the receptionist why the shuttle wasen't there and he was super rude to us and showed us a sheet with the shuttle schedule. The service starts at 6:00 AM in the morning and is there every 1.5 hrs until 10:00 in the night. Which was of no use to us at our flight was at 6:30 in the morning so we had to again take a cab at 5:00 in the morning which again cost us $35.00. Hotel itself was very bad.. not really well maintained... it stinks in the hallways. The service was very very disappointing. I would never go back to this hotel.

"Dump of a hotel in a pretty bad area.."
We stayed here for 1 night en route to a cruise. The neighborhood was extremely questionable at best. Lobby= Nicest part of hotel (just ok still), ATM didn't work and shuttle only takes cash. Staff= barely adequate, lacking English Restaurant= Horrible, slow and rude service. Interior was in a pretty advanced stage of decline. Food was so so. Pool= […] Not horrible but not great. Room (Penthouse)= Dirty, toilet barely flushed, old blurry tube style TV, doorwall didn't lock (it had duct tape on it), we were on the top floor and it sounded like the traffic 10+ floors below was in our room, ice machine was broken. I paid $210 for this room and can honestly say that I wouldn't go back there if the room was free and they paid me $210 to stay there. It needs to be leveled. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
