These rooms are more like one bedroom apartments, which makes them more valuable than a standard hotel room if you have a family or are staying for a long period of time and use the kitchen. We did not really need all that space, so the cost we paid was a little high for what we got. It's an old... More

We stopped here on our way down to the Keys. We had such a pleasant stay that we reserved a room on the way home. It was spacious, comfortable, and the screened in porch overlooking the river was delightful. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook dinner and eat out on the porch. Very nice.

These units are older but maintained. Our unit was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The screened in back porch was the best for relaxation and watching the wildlife. We will definitely stay in these Villa's again in the future. This is a fishing and boating village with extremely friendly people and stunning views. If you want to get away and... More

We stayed in Unit 12 at R.W. for the entire month of February 2014. I can only speak to the unit we stayed in - unfortunately this unit was in VERY poor condition. We had several issues when we first arrived - electric outlet on porch had to be replaced, no cover on the exhaust fan in the bathroom, kitchen... More

Hi Kathy, So sorry you were not happy here. We really try to please our guests and thought we had things okay for you. I would have appreciated you telling us about all of these extra problems instead of telling the world.. Possibly we could have fixed things better for you. What can we do to make it up to... More

We love this place. Waterfront views of lake placid on our screened in porch. We saw dolphins right outside our villa! This isn't a luxury hotel. It's not meant to be. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the cabins do need a little sprucing up. But we will always come here when we visit the... More

Everglades City is for fishing and boating in the Everglades. There's not much else going on. The desk people at this lodge were very friendly and quite helpful. The efficiency room was clean and furnished with all we needed- dishes, pots,pans, coffee maker, microwave, etc.they also provided free use of the canoes. These you can use for a short paddle...

We rented a two bedroom unit for two night for a family get together. This unit worked out perfectly for six adults, one bedroom had a queen size bed and bathroom, second bedroom had twin beds and the living room had a sleeper sofa. The covered patio was very nice with beautiful water view. Shampoo and conditioner are not provided,... More

River Wilderness is a great quiet place to stay if your looking to get out of the "commercial" Florida Scene. It is set up like an apartment, with linens and basic kitchen items. Nice livingroom furniture-even a recliner! It could use some updating, however it was clean and accommodating, and the view from your private screened in porch is not... More

This is an older facility, great river views, screened porch to sit and watch the water flow. Friendly check in/out. One maintenance issue was resolved during they day while we were out. Unit consists of sitting room, eating area, galley kitchen, bath and bedroom. Lots of nice touches, but needs updating. Bed was comfortable. Kitchen is small (one person) but... More

We booked a night at River Wilderness on a return trip from Miami. This place is a fantastic find. Located about a mile from Everglades National Park and surrounded by restaurants, boat rentals, fishing spots, etc. arranging your day is stress free. To get the most from your visit, just ask Myrna at the front desk for suggestions. She gave... More
