Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by abcR123 Poor Dining Experience
As a veteran of Holiday Inn stays, this site was clean, hospitable and comfortable except the breakfast set-up;
cramped, bulky chairs, lack of condiments (no hot sauce in Miami ??!!)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug66 The bed was comfortable and I like having many pillows.
Staff was friendly. TV remote needed new batteries and it was none in minuets. Great breakfast, although, the opening time was to be 6:00am, coffee was never there at 6:00 and other guest were waiting for the coffee. It did come out along with other items at 6:30 or so. Made people go back up to their room and come down later to check, an inconvenience if you had to be somewhere and leave at 6:30.

As soon as we arrived we felt it was a good place to stay. The room was very clean, spacious, and excellent to relax. I recommend this place.

This is one of the best stays, I've had in a long time.I've been traveling for the past year and never once was i this satisfied. From the time i checked in, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Customer Service with a smile is a big plus for me as well as my family.The room was very clean and nicely decorated. My family and i travel alot, but never once had i heard from my kids. Mom you out done yourself this time. This is so nice.Breakfast in the morning was very nice.Usually we would not eat at the hotel, but go out.But instead we dressed and went down stairs and had breakfast. It was great and very well prepared. And it kept me from going out to buy breakfast..My family and I look forward to our next stay, and we really appreciate your hospitality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 39Paul Throughly enjoyable
This hotel was centrally located to where we wanted to be. We found the facility clean, staff very friendly and courteous, breakfast had a wide variety of choice and reasonably priced. We highly recommend this location when staying in the Miami area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tent13 Convenient, comfortabe & friendly staff
This is a great property, tucked away behind the busy traffic of Kendall Drive. The rooms are a good size with a comfortable sitting area & ammenities, like microwave & mini fridge. The beds are also comfortable but doubles not queens so it is a little tight for two people, but adequate for a short stay. My only complaint is that the halls and rooms are starting to smell a little musty due to the age of property and how much traffic it gets. Breakfast is wonderful and overall this hotel is a great value!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SCCWOG Great 5 day stay for an inexpensive price
From arrival to departure the staff at this location was AWESOME. They did everything in possibility to make our stay comfortable, fun and relaxing. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I would recommend this location to any and everyone.
The only recommendation I would make is to add beef or turkey breakfast meat to the continental breakfast menu.
It was a great experience for an inexpensive price!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CCFR A good stay
We found our stay at this hotel completely enjoyable. We perfer the Holiday Inn Express chain, and this stay was among the best experiences we've had with the chain. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and large. Parking was very close, meaning we did not haul luggage far. Internet connection was good. Breakfast was the standard chain fare, but that's OK and expected. We had some cleaning done here - it was done well. Restaurants close by include some featured in the "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" TV show. We found this location close to the Everglades, Biscayne, and the Keys via the Florida turnpike, one block west. The price was less than other chain locations closer to those venues. We stayed at Miama Beach after this stop, and this hotel beat our stay at the pricey resort hands down. If we return to southern Floriday, we would definitely stay here again.

not a good location to get into or out of , very noisy you can hear everybody on your floor going and coming in their rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WGL42 I agree with the good reviews, but not the others.
I was completely satisfied with our stay with one exception: at about 10PM a group entered the room next door and a began very loud party with whoops and screams and laughs. I called the front desk to ask them to ask the group to tone it down a bit. The front desk person (Ariel) said "Well they're paying guests."

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Nice stay
My husband and I had a very nice stay. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts because the breakfast lady was so kind and friendly. The only thing that I think could be improved is relatively small. I didn't pack lotion because I assumed that all Holiday Inns stocked the rooms with lotion along with shampoo and conditioner. They do not. Holiday Inn Kendall East....don't be cheap with the lotion. Also, I was not recognized as a priority club member. Otherwise we had an excellent stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tonyw1981 Decent hotel/thin walls/dirty carpets
The hotel was nice, but I would probably not stay here again. The carpet in my roon was badly stained. The bathroom (in the suit) was so small you had to maneuver between the toilet and the door to get the door shut. The breakfast was the same ole breakfast that is at every HI propery I have been too, not bad but nothing great. I had to shut off the AC unit because everytime it came on it was so loud I could not hear the tv.
The bed and pillows were comfy and the staff was friendly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Imranhaider Bad hotel to stay on Kendall Drive in Miami
In short term if you are going there for vacation don't stay in this hotel, there is wired kind of smell you feel in there rooms, i have few other person like my colleagues they stay there and find the same issue. Room interior is really old and may be last updated in 1890... because it was in really bad shape. I just like the effort of the breakfast lady she is the only person i like as her customer service was good and the cleaning lady for our floor, as its hard to clean a smelly property...
thats all i can say .. if there is no other choice you can made then yes stay there but if you have a choice don't even bother for staying there

I was very pleased with the room, good size, liked the mini table to eat dinner at, the comfortable chair to read in. Overall I was very happy with my stay. Very close to great restaurants and easy to find off the highway.

Stayed 3 nites in a lovely suite. Comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfasts were ideal. Constant care taken to keep the
breakfast area clean and stocked. We found the staff to be
courteous and helpful at all times. Zoo Miami is just 5 miles away. The Red Lobster next door is a plus - the best dinner we
had on 7 day trip believe it or not. We picked this hotel after a
Trip Advisor review which proved to be right on the mark.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kboy Great hotel in Miami
I stayed here for the first time-was in Miami on business and this was close to where I needed to go. Have been to Miami several times (I am there monthly) and had been staying in a different hotel which was 'ok' so thought I'd try a different one. This has a GREAT location- easy on and off the freeway, several restaurants and good shopping right nearby. Can walk to the mall and a few restaurants. Nice break after you've been sitting in meetings all day. Felt Safe for a woman traveling alone. Free parking, breakfast (the woman that does the breakfast is so friendly and kind !) Very clean hotel, microwave and refrig in room, attentive pleasant helpful staff. I booked my next stay while I was there. I absolutely plan on staying there again when I am in Miami and would 100% recommend to others.

Excellent experience, loved it! Very clean, good location, nice breakfast, fantastic staff. I would have given a 5 star overall experience, except for the mattresses: they are old and bumpy, can give you backpain. The rest is just great!

Not sure that the sheets had been changed before our stay. Bed linens were discolored and very wrinkled. You really had to manuever to get into the bathroom -- very small.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hopper Great room and service, but no sausage gravy for breakfast, awful bacon.
A great place to stay. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Most of the usual HIExpress breakfast fare, but no sausage gravy! I have stayed at this Express several times, but never any sausage gravy. Also, the bacon consists of hard, thin, skinny strips with little taste. The remainder of breakfast items are good...no complaints.
Everything else with the facility is great and I plan on staying there again.
