This hotel had excellent service, excellent free breakfast with eggs, bacon, ham etc. Location is excellent and gives you easy accessibily to all different attractions, a short drive to Key West and very close to Everglades. Our room was very spacious, pool was clean and well kept. No problem with any noise. We liked having a second sink so we... More

We were spending several days just seeing sites in and around the Everglades. This was a great location. There are loads of resturants, main roads, and spots to pick up that forgotten item close by. These are rooms that open to the outside. They are very spacious for familes and have an extra sink outside the bathroom area that is... More

Great for location to visit the Everglades, weekends there is a free trolley in Homestead that goes to the Everglades. Nice way to introduce the Everglades. Off main road but quiet and great breakfast included. Basic room but large and nice bathroom.

The hotel was very nice and close to the Everglades National Park. The breakfast was more than I expected with eggs and bacon along with the usual free continental breakfast that you normally get. The room was very large and clean and the pool area was spacious and well kept (not that we had much time to enjoy it because... More

This hotel location allowed us to use points in their rewards system during the week and/or weekend. Many Florida hotels block out weekends. This hotel listened when we requested no service or a change in plans. Our 2 queen bed room had a sink and granite counter inside and outside the shower area that was very convenient and useful. The... More

I'm glad to read that you enjoyed your stay, and the Everglades. Many guest forget the Everglades is right next to the hotel, and they only visit the Florida Keys. We normally have several options of fresh fruit every morning during breakfast. I will look into what happened. Thank you for the kind words, and I hope to see you... More

This hotel is by far the best one I have been to in a long time that was clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast on the other have was ok because the seating was limited but the ladies kept the food coming!

I thank you so much for the great 5 star review. I love reading on how our hotel is clean and the staff were friendly. We are currently redesigning our breakfast area and it should be completed my mind 2015. I hope to see you again. More

We stayed here for four nights using our Best Western points. We visited Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, and Biscayne National Park. This hotel is centrally located and it was easy to do all we wanted! The Internet was very good! The rooms are very spacious. A little dated on the decor but no big deal. We were... More

The rooms are very spacious. Lots of room for lots of luggage, etc. The bathroom is spacious. There is a sink both in the bathroom and in the little kitchen area - which has a coffee maker, refrigerator, and a microwave. There is a Maxwell House coffee maker 24 hours a day in the lobby. The building is set up... More

The hotel was in a good location after our trip to the Keys and before we headed to the Everglades. The staff on the front desk were helpful and it was nice that there was tea and coffee available 24hrs in the lobby. The room was clean and there are a few places to eat near by. It was quiet...
