Room was clean and well appointed, we had a quiet night, but I could see how some rooms would have been noisy due to the layout. Checkout was a little slow, but front desk staff was very helpful and there was free Wifi Breakfast was good I think we paid $150 for one night, a little pricey for what it... More

We stayed there for 3 nights. The beds were very comfortable. The water warm when you need it. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Just good Best Western standard. The breakfast was great, far beyond The Best Western standard! If we visit Florida City again, we will stay in this hotel only!

Without going into detail, Felix ( the manager) helped me out with a reservation problem, saving me several hundred dollars, that he did not have to do. That, plus the very good overall experience, makes this property one that I gladly would use again and recommend. The room was fresh and updated with comfortable beds and a very clean bathroom....

We stayed here 5 nights while working in Homestead. The room was clean. That's the best thing I can say about this motel. If you want to sleep past 9am - forget it! Just before 9am, the big housekeeping carts start rolling down the echoing hallways along with the housekeepers shouting to each other. The front desk staff was coldly... More

I am sorry that you still felt this way after you spoke to us today. You originally said this was occurring at 7-8am and I tried to assure you that our housekeeping staff does not begin to come until 930am. The only thing I could think this would be is other guest luggage but I honestly could not tell you... More

Hotel sits back off highway & was a pleasant surprise. Nice facility & grounds. Courtyard pool. We stayed at bare bones facility further down the keys for essentially same price. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

The property is very well maintained, with an added outside hot tub with a whirlpool. There is a very nice outside courtyard with plenty of tables and chairs. Our room had a mini fridge and a small micro wave, for any left over out side meals. Rooms were very clean with all equipment functioning property. Easy access to get to... More

My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights on our way to the Keys. We chose this hotel because of the proximity to Everglades National Park and near the Overseas Highway to the Florida Keys. There is a McDonalds across the street and many restaurants nearby in both Florida City and Homestead. Try The Big Cheese restaurant for good... More

We stayed here two nights on our spontaneous road trip down the west coast of Florida and up the east coast. We used it as base on our visit to Key West, as it is next to impossible to find a hotel in the Keys spontaneously. The hotel is lovely, layed out well, and has friendly staff and a nice... More

most important to us is clean and comfortable bed. Both were good. GPS took us to the wrong place but we did find it. Didnt help that no one picked up the phone when we tried to call. Breakfast was good. Not enough room for guests to sit down though.

Clean & comfy rooms. Great pillows and beds. All needed amenities such as iron & ice bucket. Decent breakfast bar. Great location between Miami and Key Largo. A perfect start to our vacation down in The Keys.
