Get rid of the instant coffee machine and get real coffee. We went to McDonalds across the street for coffee. The instant machine is just awful. Put a cut in the curb in front of the rooms. Elderly people have trouble climbing up the curb and fighting through the bushes. It is a long walk dragging a suitcase to go... More

Thank you for your response. I'm sorry you feel that way with the coffee. We upgraded our coffee a couple of years ago to the Nescafe by Nestle. So far its been great with all the guests. We still do offer drip style coffee in every room with the 4 cup coffee maker. I also agree and understand your concern... More

We stay here every year on our way to the Keys. The rooms are always spotless and very comfortable . The staff are great and make you feel welcomed. The location is perfect for us to stop and enjoy a trip to Alabama Jacks prior to heading on to key West. We will definitely stay here again!

It IS right at the beginning of the drive down US Highway 1 to Key West! It's set back from the road behind a liquor store and empty restaurant...but it looks nice once you get past these buildings. Unfortunately it is an older place with very low ceilings (in our room anyway). Our room opened to the outside parking...there are... More

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
