A wonderful Motel nearby the Highway 1 but quite. The pool invites for som rest. Good located for trips to the Keys and Everglades. Nice and clean rooms, large enough, with good housekeeping service. We stayed for 6 nights and will come back.

This place is the place to stop for friendly people and a good nights sleep! The staff is loaded with the nicest people like head of house keeping Carleana and Kathy! They will go out of their way to make you feel at home. Then there is Karl who is the most kind hearted person you will ever meet. He... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our lovely staff. I read this review during our daily meeting with all the staff.

Excellent breakfast, unlimited bacon! Very polite staff. Convenient location to start your trip into Everglades National Park, down to the Keys and most Miami attractions. Adequate parking, AC worked very well and ran quietly. Attractive pool area. It’s really all you need in hotel. .

Con: Hard to locate when coming in on Hwy 997. Pros: Check in was a breeze. Staff very nice and friendly. Some nice restaurants around there. Grounds lovely. Really good breakfast offered. Room clean and smelled fresh. Bathroom clean but door stuck when trying to open or close it.

We were very happy with the accommodations. The rooms were clean, beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was very good and plentiful. We stopped here on our way to Key West. Compared to our stay at the Parrot Key resort at 350 a night this was a better value. The refrigerator and kitchen area was larger than the thimble... More

This location was a perfect center for visiting the Everglades, Fruit and Spice Park, Miami Beach, Bicayne Natonal Park and so much more. The pool area and lobby are very nice. The rooms are nothing special and have small square pillows, but we didn't mind because we don't spend much time in the room.
