Everything was excellent! The room was spotless and well supplied. The breakfast was awesome, plenty of choices and very tasty, coffee was very good. The Staff was very professional and helpful. I will definitely return whenever I'm back in this area. Excellent value for the rate.

Very affordable for our budget and surprisingly everything was super clean & up-to-date for just the right price! Right off the highway, just behind the last gas station before the bridge to the Keys. We all slept great, the rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was OK, just get there quick because it gets packed! Service was amazing, everyone had a... More

We stayed here for 1 night so we could visit the keys. It is about a 25 min drive to key largo and a 2 1/2 hour drive to key west so we only travelled to key largo. The hotel is very easy to find and there are lots of places to eat around including a walmart very close. Staff... More

Very clean place and the front desk staff is helpful. Breakfast is okay, but good for the price (also is included with all rooms). Our room was $90/night, pretty cheap compared to what surrounding hotels were asking for. I must say though, this is NOT a hotel. This is a motel. Hotels have the rooms inside, while these rooms had... More

Me and my family spent a week here and had three rooms. The staff was extremely accommodating, the rooms were impeccable and the hotel was a great value.

"The rooms were impeccable and the hotel was a great value.", this was the opening line in today's housekeeping meeting. It is always nice to read such a great review. Our housekeepers work hard to make those rooms sparkle, and it pays off when a guest such as yourself, delivers a review I can share. More

I rate this an excellent hotel to stay. It was convenient to everything we needed. I was down in Florida City for a relative's memorial service. It was very close to my family who lives there and to the church where the service was being held. I would most definitely stay at this facility again and again. If I ever... More

We decided to stay in this hotel during our round trip in florida, because the location was right in the middle between the keys and the everglades. Hotel is quiet and roomrates much lower than in key largo. For those who do not want to have the sea in the evening.

Felix C, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Gateway to the Keys, responded to this review

Thank you for your response. Many guests stay with us because we are located in-between the Keys, Everglades, and Miami Beach. Like you said you save on room costs and still can visit all the local attractions from a central point. Now that you have done your Florida round trip vacation, I hope you come back and visit us again. More
