Of course this Best Western is not a luxury resort, but if offers a great starting point for trips to the Keys or the Everglades. We stayed here for three nights and did not regret! Save the money of staying in an expensive hotel in Key West or some other key and stay here. It's clean, decent, friendly staff, pool,... More

Perfect alternative to paying higher prices in the Keys. Minutes away from Key Largo. Nice pool, clean rooms, free breakfast were all enjoyed prior to visiting the Keys and at a much lower price. Friendly staff.

This hotel was great! It had a great room, plentiful parking, guest laundry, a lovely open pool/courtyard area and was at the edge of Floriday City on Highway 1 just before going to a 2-lane highway (but set 1 block away from the highway). Great location, great value!

Stayed for two nights having flown to Miami and intended to visit the Keys. The pool was spacious with available chairs and sunbeds. The room was clean and a good size. The breakfast wasn't great. The service and staff were friendly, but you had to queue an shuffle round everyone because the layout was too small for the number of... More

Acceptable stay, with approachable and nice enough staff'. Has good size and clean rooms, though their towels are thin and well worn, definitely in need of re-ordering. Their breakfast had a good variety. enjoyed eating by the pool.

Stayed one night here on our way back from the Keys. Room was clean and spacious. I especially liked the two sinks in the bathroom. Breakfast had plenty of selections and was well stocked. Price seemed great after paying "Key" prices. Check in and out was fast and courteous.

We stopped here as our first stop on our trip through the Keys. It was clean, convenient, inexpensive and offered rooms and amenities that I would have expected form a higher-priced hotel. There was no food available, and the ice maker was very far away and inadequate for the demand being placed upon it by this large of a hotel.... More

Definitely great value if you are visiting the upper Keys. Worth having to drive to key Largo and Islamorada each day instead of paying the inflated hotel prices there. Guests were a bit noisy tonight but that is not management's fault.

Great room near the keys when you don't want to pay the price for a room in the keys. Very comfortable and clean with a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Close to John Pennekamp State Park for snorkeling.

We just drove in from a 12 hour drive with our 4 year old to find out that the hotel we booked in Key Largo was over booked. So, long story short we had to back track 30 minutes to this hotel. We arrived around midnight. Christian was so nice! He listened to my story & ended up charging me... More
