    « The Heart of Kendall »

    Great staff and clean hotel! The entire hotel was clean and constantly maintained. All of the staff were friendly and busy. Great value for business or family. Rooms were quiet even though the hotel is centrally located to business and residential areas.

    « Attentive to details, the PLUS makes a big difference »

    Our 5th floor "mini suite" was quite nice. The king bed was very comfortable, and the mini living room, flat screen TV and desk area were nice. The bath area was large, and all the amenities were good. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise with different food on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The hot tub and pool were clean and warm. The only slight complaint is that the water pressure was not that great. I would select a lower floor next time. Would definitely go back. This location is just great for race weekends in Homestead, about a 20 minute ride in and away from the chaos of a NASCAR weekend there. Enjoy!

    « Mac Cycle Triathlon Event »

    Best thing about this hotel, is its location to the Miami Man/Mack Cycle Triathlon Event. Personally, I rather travel a bit further than stay at this location! For example, hotel staff was often in the way -- working and moving cleaning carts, during the "peak" time of the day. Room was outdated - in need of updates. I had to unplug a lamp, in order to use "two" outlets.

    « Excellent customer service »

    The hotel staff was amazing and so helpfull! I had a family at Kendal regional in ICU and the staff was very caring and helpful. The shuttle driver (Mario) was fantastic getting me to and from the hospital for 9 days! The front desk staff was so kind, especially Lianette. Thank you for making this rough time easier.

    We like the location of this hotel. We also like the hotel itself. It is comfortable and quiet. The breakfast has lots of good choices and the coffee is always fresh. There are a number of restaurants close by and it is very close to the Florida turnpike. We will stay there again.

    I stood at Best Western Plus for business and I was very happy all around with this hotel. I will be staying here again. rooms are always clean and early morning breakfast was great as well. Internet was great too, I have been to some hotels where there internet is no good, and I was unable to check any of my emails which really got to me.

    Very well located, great staff. Very clean, good breakfast, nice atmosphere. You get a membership at LA Fitness when you stay there. There is a nice pool that is quite private, and you are close to everything. I was able to access Scuba in the keys as well as Miami from this location with a short drive.

    « Good Except Noisy AC »

    Spent a few nights here for a conference that was held here. Property was exceptionally clean including the breakfast area and downstairs bathroom. The breakfast was a decent selection and well stocked. My main issue was that the the wall AC unit in the room was the loudest I've ever experienced to the point of waking me up when it turned on. At one point on the first night I turned it off to see if that would help but could still loudly hear the neighboring AC's running so it didn't really make a difference. Also, the bed was lumpy and not particularly comfortable. But if your primary concern us cleanliness, this is your place!

    Stayed here to be close to family - It was definitely a good choice and worth the money. The breakfast was good - location is right off the turnpike and near shops and restaurants. Quiet at night. Plenty of space in the room. We had a king bed with a big bathroom. Very clean.

    « Unhelpful staff »

    There were two times during my stay when we need the help of the staff. In both instances, the staff failed miserably to help and acted as if our requests were an annoyance. One instance was when my daughter arrived at the hotel on her wedding night in her wedding dress without the key which her husband had but was not present at the time. The security person, in a hostile manner, refused to help her enter her room. In the other instance, when I realized I had left something in the room after checkout, the staff was very unhelpful, one person even lying that it was "illegal" for housekeeping to enter a room for a second time and another person telling me that he was the only staff member on duty at the hotel so he could not check.

    « Great Start of trip to Key West »

    Check-in was a little slow due to a large group check-in and customer complaint. However, the desk agents kept their cool, resolved the problems and were calm during our check-in. They get kudos. Check-in and check-out was uneventuful. The rooms were clean and neat. The breakfast room was large enought for everyone and breakfast options were good.

    « Beautiful, clean hotel »

    I stayed at this Hotel in September 2016 for a workshop, (Business related). Ironically, we discussed professional development and customer service. This hotel was very clean, beautiful, close to some dining locations and strip malls. The lobby is clean and the rooms are very clean, have cool AC and comfortable beds. The room staff kept everything in tip top shape with clean towels, clean bathroom and bed made everyday. Each morning breakfast options were great and the team and coffee selection was fabulous No problems with in-room Wi-Fi and the business center as well. I did have some issues with the rudeness of the check in staff, Andrew, as he really was annoyed with the existence of everyone that bother him. At first I thought he was having a bad day but he continued his rude behavior the entire stay and unfortunately for me, he was there every day of it. The morning check-out man, Louis, he was annoyed that not everyone brought both keys to them with check out and there was an issue with calling for a cab, not his fault, but his inappropriate comments about that situation and one of our friends was completely unacceptable. Overall, the Hotel is worth the money and a great place to stay, just avoid the rude men that work at the front desk. BTW all other front desk people were great and easy to work with.

    « Very Pleasant Stay »

    I found the hotel very clean, the staff was very pleasant, smiling and helpful. I needed dinner and they pointed me across the street to a diner. The breakfast had lots of options from waffles, danishes, bagels and french toast to eggs and bacon.

    « Only stayed one night but would book it again. »

    « Way Better than Expected »

    I'm a Marriott girl, and yet, this hotel way exceeded my expectations. Samantha, at the front desk, was amazing and made our stay perfect from her initial greeting. She was super helpful and eager to please. The room was super... we were up-graded to a mini-suite, so we had plenty of room. We did see the regular rooms, and they would have been perfect, too. The rooms were super clean (and I'm very particular), and the bed was comfortable. The air conditioner was a bit loud, but it was nothing to make a big deal about. The breakfast was typical of breakfasts, and everyone was quite helpful. The location is perfect, with a zillion restaurants in the area, many of which were in walking distance. I would stay at this hotel again with no reservations...it was a delightful stay!!

    « The "Best" in Best Western... 'Nuff Said! »

    I spent a week at this hotel on business and enjoyed every minute I was able to lie down in the bed, or partake of a full-spread breakfast, unlimited beverages, even raisin oatmeal cookies in the evenings as a snack! LA Fitness, a movie theater, Barnes & Nobles, and an entire shopping center are very nearby - all within walking distance. What is that they say about 'location'? Well, the hotel developers picked perhaps the "best" spot in town. I'm definitely booking this one again on my next trip to Miami or any of the surrounding areas.

    Love the hotel. Rooms were very clean, The bed and pillows were super comfortable.The breakfast was really good with a good selection of items. Excellent service from the breakfast staff, The checking was already almost completed from the reservation information, so the process was very quick and so was the check out.

    « close to Miami beach without the dollars »

    we needed a place to stay one night close to Miami beach before we headed home after a cruise. Best Western Kendall fit the bill, the price was reasonable, it was close to places to eat and about 20 minutes from Miami. The rooms were clean, comforable and had a mini fridge. They had a nice breakfast in the morning, so glad to see canadian bacon! A big plus for me when I don't do carbs and am allergic to eggs.

    « Functional Stay and Free Breakfast »

    Standard room, rather plain but the bed was comfortable and the AC worked nicely. Parking for the motel is awful as it is minimal in the front and on the side. Breakfast was ok. The eggs were cold and I have never seen bacon that thin or tasteless. At least you can make a waffle. The picture on the TV was grainy. Would not stay here again.

    « Hidden gem in a very dense suburban area »

    As others have stated, we found the hotel clean, comfortable and the staff helpful as well as friendly. For our purposes it provided a good breakfast with some different options two days in a row. For other meals it was close to another shopping center that had several options. We look forward to returning to this hotel because of its safe & central location for us, amenities, staff,and price especially if are a AAA member.

    I would have rated this hotel excellent if it was not for the beds. They are very uncomfortable and you can tell they are needing to be replaced. But with that being said the hotel is very well maintained. Its clean and has updated bed covers and towels. The room overall was nice, even has a refrigerator. The breakfast is your typical hotel breakfast from pastries, cereal, eggs and potatoes to making your own waffles with very topping available. Pool area was clean and even has a hot tub. Overall this great you can tell the staff and management cares about this property. We would stay here again.

    « Great location and ammenities... however the bed sucks »

    Location and amenities of the Best Western PLUS Kendall Hotel & Suites was amazing. My only complaint about the hotel was the fact that the bedding was way below comfortable. The pillows were either excessively firm placing my neck into uncomfortable positions or had no support at all. This meant I was not able to sleep through the night. Additionally, the comforter on the bed had not been laundered properly. The stuffing in the comforter was bunched up along seams in the comforter and had locations with absolutely no stuffing. This hotel would be an excellent choice once they get their bedding issues resolved.

The inside was very clean and well kept, the staff were all very nice. The breakfast was all fresh and well stocked, Internet was fast. The only complaint I have is that the bed I had was a very thin mattress top and you could feel the springs underneath. I spent 2 nights and I'm still sore today after sleeping in my own bed.

    I could not use the AC unit in my room, 418, due to the overwhelming mold odor coming from the unit when the fan was on. For anyone with mold allergies, this could be a health hazard. Avoid room 418 and check your room AC unit prior to accepting a room. Otherwise a very clean, pleasant hotel.

    Best Western had a wonderful continental breakfast. There was an assortment of hot and cold choices. Oatmeal with fresh fruit toppings, eggs/bacon, toast, waffles, pastries and cereal.

There was even a farmers market on the weekend.

    « Good breakfast, good stay »

    The breakfast wasn't just an ordinary continental breakfast, there was actually a variety of many different breakfast items to choose from. The room was clean but the bed is horribly firm. After some time sleeping in the beds, you do eventually get used to the firmness but the first night was torture. The staff was friendly and helpful although there were a few members who seemed quite clueless about some of their rules and protocol. It was also located by many different restaurants and activities so we had something to do every night.

    « Excellent quiet hotel, reasonable priced, location is not ideal »

    Good things: - Good breakfast with good selection of food. A large seating area so you can actually find a table on the weekend. - The hotel is located off the main street, in a quiet location (no road noise) - Nice and helpful staff. Nice people staying there. - Nice large pool (I didn't use it). Other considerations: - The price is low because this hotel is in the suburbs, not near the beach action. - The hotel is in a mall area, and traffic is horrible, especially on the weekend. - Far from FLL and MIA. Note that in the morning, traffic between Kendall and MIA is real bad. The front desk girl recommends 1.5 hours to MIA in the morning. 40 minutes (without traffic) to FLL.

    I mostly stay in this hotel when visiting the Miami area. I have been staying here since it first opened maybe 2 stags a year depending. Never had a prob with check in or out and the staff at the front desk is helpful. The upkeep has been good and the rooms are still very nice and comfy. Great down South location and many businesses are around and places to eat. Right across the road is a movie theater and book store as well as places to shop and eat. The full breakfast offers a lot of options from cereal to eggs, sausage and fresh waffles you can make yourself. They sometimes lay out cookies and fruit in the evening in the dinning area. Some reviews I have seen say it is noisy but in my room, I never hear the highway noises at all. Drawbacks, can be location because of lack of parking close to the hotel if you get in later at night. Parking lot not as accomdating around the building itself if you wish to park real close to any of the exterior doors. I think for such a high traffic area, the price could be a lil cheaper. On average, I pay 120+ and up a night. A lil steep to me but I guess the full breakfast makes up for it.

    « Lost our reservation »

    When we arrived they informed us they had a record of our reservation through Best Western and our BW rewards program but through some glitch the hotel itself did not have our reservation, and therefore did not have a room for us! At least they realized their responsibility to us because of the reservation and did eventually give us a room, but instead of a 2 queen room for 3 people they gave us a King room which was not as accommodating or comfortable, as one of us was forced to sleep on a very uncomfortable fold out couch!!! Then we were short on pillows but when we called the desk they said that they were all out and did not have any extras! Aimee at the desk was nice and tried to be helpful, but I it took over an hour to finally get us a room we could move in to. I think they felt they were off the hook for making it up to us because they put us in a room that would have cost more, but it was NOT a room that suited our needs so we didn't care that it was a more expensive room for no extra charge. I feel we should have been given a partial refund for our trouble since it was their mistake or they should have provided us with accommodations that included an actual bed for each person. It was a nice hotel but it sure left a bad taste! How good is a guaranteed and confirmed reservation if there is no room there when you arrive?

    « Why not stay here? »

    This hotel is clean, friendly, quite and near shopping and doctors' offices. The price is affordable and parking and breakfast is included. The hotel is not suitable, in my opinion, for a stay without your own means of transportation. Probably taxi service is easily gotten but I don't know for sure since I drive my own car when I stay here. In other words, it is handy to malls, restaurants and hospital facilities but not within walking distance. It is located just off a busy 4 lane street but the hotel itself is secluded and quiet. I enjoy the Barnes and The breakfast is in a self-service style and is adequate though nothing to rave about.

    After searching a while online for an affordable yet 3 or 4 star hotel, we were fortunate to find this location. We were very pleased with our room and beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. Hallway noise could be heard occasionally and shutting of room doors, however that was the only complaint. A complete hot breakfast was served in a very attractive and large serving area and coffee and tea and fresh fruit were always available. Would have liked to stay longer than the two days we had booked for our getaway weekend.

    We chose this hotel because of the location. It was ideally situated to get to the cruise terminal in Miami. We arrived early and we were allocated a room straight away. We were even offered breakfast on the day of our arrival.

    « Pleased With My Stay »

    We were not intending on staying here originally, but found it - and a 2-bed room was available - at the last minute after leaving an unsafe and unacceptable room in Florida City, and after a 1-night stay at a nearby hotel that was too expensive for our budget. So thank you Best Western! I thought the hotel and décor was fine, although the person I was travelling with thought everything seemed quite outdated. It was comfortable, safe, and convenient to lots of shopping, restaurants, and roadways. The hot tub seemed dirty, though, but we did enjoy it for a quick soak. In general, I was pleased with our stay but I do have two notes for people staying here in the future: 1)there is SO MUCH TRAFFIC in this area. It took us about 45 minutes to go 5 miles on the main road near this hotel. Be prepared. 2)There seems to be a lack of parking in this hotel lot. We had to park off to the side/back and it seemed quite far from the actual hotel front doors. Not a huge problem, but slightly annoying. The price was pretty fair, although I do prefer to spend a little less.... but this was near where we wanted to be, it was safe, and convenient, and less expensive than other hotels nearby.

    « Convenient location »

    The hotel was good and the breakfast was excellent. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Lighting in the parking lot was poor, which presents a security issue for single travelers. My card key deactivated twice, which was rather annoying. The air conditioning needs to be serviced or upgraded. Even in January, it is warm in Miami. The air was not sufficient. The location was excellent. Very close to the venue and lots of amenities within walking distance. I highly recommend the Moonlite Diner across the street. The Mahi-mahi fish tacos are superb and service was good.

    « Bad attitude and customer service »

    Avoid this hotel if you can. Facilities are dated and border line clean. Service attitude is not adequate, excepto for very few exceptions. The facilities and rooms are dated. Basically zero healthy choices for breakfast.

    Due to terrible weather we decided to travel direct to this hotel from Jupiter and thus arrived at 11.30 am. We expected to be too early to check in but were delighted that this was no problem.Room was clean,large and comfortable. Wi-fi was good. The hotel has plentiful parking and is well located near shops and restaurants.The choice for breakfast was probably the best I have ever had for free in this type of hotel.I would recommend this hotel.

    « Dated and Tired Hotel with below average service »

    The hotel is dated in its decor, amenities, and overall. Personnel is below average in terms of customer service, with only a few exceptions. Breakfast lacks healthy options. WE picked this hotel because its location for what we needed, but would not stay here again if I can avoid it.

    « Nice hotel »

    We decided to drive up a day early because we were concerned about our early morning flight. Sight unseen and a phone call and this Hotel was just right! Very clean very nice staff, very clean pool and jacuzzi. The area of the hotel is terrific, walking distance to nice shops, great movie theatre and Barnes & Nobles, and a few restaurant choices. Would highly Recommend this hotel.

    Another pleasant stay at Best Western in Kendall, Florida. We will be back soon! The staff now treats us as family accommodating our needs and requests to make our stay smooth, fun and enjoyable! The breakfast is always good and well attended with families and groups traveling together. A bonus is a fun Diner across the street with wonderful deserts nd a B & N just down the street if you have some leisure time to read and relax.

    Recommend anyone to come and stay. Reception is excellent especially if you meet Ms. Lynette @ reception desk who is very helpful. Room are clean and breakfast is excellent. Parking is no problem. Shopping , Dinning all around just a walk away. Cinemas next door if you want to catch a Movie. Recommend for everyone.

    « Our third stay in three years and each stay was wonderful! »

    It is so great to be welcomed by friendly staff and know that everything is exceptionally clean and comfortable. The bed was heavenly and I love that they put clean duvet covers on for each new guest! It always feels like we are the first ones in the room. This visit they offered express chec-out which is new since we were here last. We are diamond Rewards members so they gave us an upgrade to a suite-which was a welcome surprise after a long drive. They are really close to so many shopping areas and restaurants that I can see why they are so busy. We come to Kendall to visit family so don't normally shop locally or take advantage of all that the hotel offers. One other thing I love about this hotel is the water pressure is great-much better than at home so I take a deliciously long hot shower! We will be back in June as we have a reunion to attend-we will see you again!!!

    « Smoke in the Room »

    The worse thing that can happen in a work trip is that after a 16 hour working day you have to check in 2 times in a hotel because the first room the hotel choose for you the previous guess smoke in the room and it smelled like an ashtray. So after logging up my luggage and computer to the room I had to make the trip back to the lobby to encounter a no so friendly staff that it seem it was my problem that the room stunk.

    Lovely pool. Friendly staff. Great internet and comfy beds!!! Lots of restaurants close by as well. Great option for Kendall. Lobby was quite nice and spacious with a very nice breakfast. Feels very Latino and not much English in the breakfast room...lovely folks regardless.

    « Miami Carnival »

    Awesome location and amenities. We went for Miami Carnival and was close enough to drive to South beach, get some beach time, night life and of course, enjoy the Carnival. We would definitely stay at this location again - it's near a mall, an all night Diner and the Florida turnpike.

    Affordable and extremely polite staff!!!! On arrival the staff were very polite. One staff member was amazing. He drove the shuttle to and from the Miami Carnival grounds and made sure that I didn't get lost when it was time to return beck the hotel. Very polite and extremely patient. Thank You Mario.

    « More Than I Expected »

    When I travel I usually stay at a 4 or 5 star hotel because I like the convenience of room service and the high rating will usually guarantee that the room is comfortable and clean. There isn't much to choose from In Kendall and it was the only place I could find in the area at last minute that had a great review so I booked it. I wasn't disappointed at all. I booked a junior suite, and the room was super clean. Nothing fancy but not outdated either. Just normal white crisp linens and normal hotel furniture but it was nice. The bed was comfortable and they serve breakfast in the morning until 10am. Nothing fancy either but at least I got my hot coffee and croissant.

    « Thank you Best Western. »

    Having stayed at your hotel made our visit to Miami more enjoyable because it is located near the highway towards Key West, and the route 4 or 41 to Naples. It was near the wedding, and family residences. The beach was not too far away.

    « Unsatisfied »

    I booked a room 3 separate times at the Best Western Plus Kendall Hotel at 8560 SW 124TH AVENUE, Miami, FL 33183. A family member has been in the ICU at the area hospital. My husband and I have been traveling from Kissimmee, FL to Miami in order to help monitor their care. The dates of my visits are: 9/6, 9/12, and 9/26. Each visit I have had a problem with the shower draining. No one likes to take a shower standing ankle deep in water. On my first visit, it was late in the evening when I realized the problem with the shower drain. After spending the day in ICU, I was beyond tired. I decided to not to ask for another room and mention the problem to the front desk in the morning. On the second visit, I learned at check-in that the hotel offers a hospital visitor discount. Unfortunately, I was told by the front desk agent that they could not give me that rate because I booked my reservation online. I accepted this excuse and said I would call directly for my reservation next time. This same visit, the room I was given also had a non-draining shower. Once again, I explained the situation to the front desk agent the next morning. They agreed to discount my stay by 20%. Since the front desk agent was helpful on my second visit, I decided to try another stay at your hotel. This third visit, I checked the shower drain before getting settled into the room. Right away I knew I had to ask for an alternate room. The new room I was given had the same problem with the drain. I was not willing to drag my bags back down to the front desk, only to be given another unsatisfactory room.

    « Fantastic best western »

    This is one of the top Best Western hotels I've ever visited. The rooms are large and clean. The hotel staff was nice during check-in and baked fresh cookies for guests! As we walked in the hotel they made us aware of them while they were still warm, yum! The hotel is also a good driving distance from the airport and is right next to a fantastic diner which does $3 shakes that taste amazing!

    « A real gem »

    I stayed here for 4 night on a business trip and I felt like I was at home. The staff (every single one) is so friendly and helpful! Breakfast was expansive and delicious every morning - and selections were different every day so you didn't get bored with it. Hot omelettes and savory home fries, waffle station, fresh fruit, hot oatmeal, and a variety of coffees and teas all day. The rooms were very clean and the bed was so comfy! Close by within walking distance are numerous restaurants- both quick and full serve- like Bahama Breeze, Macaroni Grill, and On the Border, and a diner. There's also a Barnes & Noble and a Chuck E Cheese next door. I will be staying here again and again....
