Pool was cold,spa needs an update. Location OK for overnight. Rooms may need an update too. Rate OK for what it is. Rooms where clean.breakfast OK. But why is it not allowed to have the breakfast outside at pool area, it should be so much nicer.

Nice pool area, rooms were O.K. Ours needed new carpet...no lotion, but shampoo/conditioner provided. Fridge-microwave in room with a small dining/table. A nice breakfast was provided. The staff was very accommodating.

This is actually a beautiful property but I have given 3/5 because we were made to wait to check in Yes we were an hour early for check in, however I had not requested a specific room and while waiting we saw many that were ready. Maybe this is a Best Western policy, but one that makes no sense. Once... More

I am really sorry that you had to wait for your room before the check in time. Your reservation asked for a specific room that you had paid for. A pool side room has an extra charge to it and we have to make sure we give you the room type you booked or that would be unfair to you.... More

Clean comfortable rooms here at this Best Western. Excellent front desk girls. When checking in I asked if they knew of a good Mexican restaurant, that not just told me about one but they printed out their menu and directions. You remember places like that.

It's a good place to stop on your way to the keys. It's clean, the rooms were big and comdortable, the area was quiet and breakfast (bagels, wggs, cereal, bacon, yogurt, juice, oatwmal) is free, along with the WiFi and parking. OT has a small pool with a jacuzzi and it's clean. This is my second time here, and will... More

We made the arrangements online based on reviews of this property. We had just driven back from a long day in Key West ; we were exhausted. We were not disappointed. The room was nice, quiet, and very clean. The ladies at the desk were very pleasant. Should we be in the area again, this is the place we will... More

We loved our 2-day stay at this hotel which was close to one of the Everglades National Park entrances. It's also close to the "Robert Is Here" fruit stand which is a "must-visit" for their wonderful tropical fruit milkshakes. The hotel was clean, rooms were big, staff were nice and helpful, and the complimentary, full hot breakfast was excellent. I... More
