Terrible stay, no security and apathetic service. Random people who are not guests hang around the pool in full view of the front desk unchallenged, waiting to steal your car and valuables. Toilet in room would not flush and owner had to be called more then once to fix. Our car was broken into in full view of hotel video... More

We stayed at this property twice on the way to and from the Keys. If you're looking for a clean place to stay, you'll be pleased. The rooms are dated and the breakfast isn't anything to write home about. The staff is very friendly and the pool is nice and clean. A great place to sit outside in the morning.

Compared to the prices of the hotels in key largo the value was great. Room was clean, it was quiet and the staff was friendly. We paid roughly 1/3 of what a good key largo room costs. If you just need somewhere to crash for the night this is the place.

We stayed two nights while touring the Everglades. The staff is great, the breakfast adequate. The room could have had a little more detail with regard to cleaning. There was a dead bug on the base of the floor lamp when we got there, and it was still there when we left.

Very nice and clean room. Family run and they take pride in the place. The pool was nice and clean and enjoyable to sit out by. Breakfast had a good choices for everybody. The location was at the top of Key Largo which was great. Close to restaurants and everything. The price was very reasonable.This hotel was a choice.

I stayed with my family (2 kids) for one night in the Econo Lodge before driving to Key West. We payed $140 for the room which was way to much compared to the value that was delivered: > Dark room with old carpet > Very old TV > But worst: I tiny little breakfast room with a very poor breakfast...

We picked this EconoLodge for the price and convenient location for our Everglades excursion the next day. It's near a busy intersection on Hwy 1, but we were pleased with that our room was quiet, and with a little intrepidity (is that a word?) we walked to nearby shops and food (just north of the motel). It's a little tricky... More
