We ended up booking this hotel when we missed our connection flight out of Miami due to mechanical and weather issues. American Airlines told us they wouldn't be giving anyone vouchers so we booked this one based on the cost and having a free shuttle.
We called for the shuttle and we waited for over 45mins-1 hr. When we called the hotel after 35mins they said we missed the first one and he'll come back. There is no way we missed it because we were staring at every shuttle as they passed by and there was another guest that we found out was doing the same.
On the shuttle we found out the other guest received vouchers for food and her hotel stay when she was on the same flight as us. So we checked in the hotel and walked down the street to IHOP (it was terrible..worst ihop I've ever been to) to eat then took the free shuttle back to the airport and get our vouchers.
From there we ubered to K-Mart (not far from the hotel) and got some overnight things. The hotel was nice enough to cancel the hotel stay on my credit card and take the voucher instead. I was extremely happy that they went out of their way to do that since I already paid for the stay through expedia. The guy at the front desk was extremely helpful.
Food at the hotel was a little pricey. We ordered guacamole and chips and received like 10 chips for the bowl.
The area didn't seem to have much going for it..not many restaurants/shops/anything, but we were just here overnight for the layover. Not a bad location if you are just there for the airport since it's like 5-10 minutes away. They did have a pool that looked nice though.
