We stayed here two nights in Nov while visiting the Everglades. The room was a good size and clean. The hotel presented itself well...with a bright and clean lobby and nicely manicured grounds. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The pool area looked nice but it was too cold to use during our visit. We didn't stay for... More

This was an okay hotel. Not quite up to the Best Western standard we've come to expect tho. The room was clean. There is no wifi in the rooms, the desk person seemed surprised I would even ask. It is available in the lobby and pool area only.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The room was a good size with a little kitchen area with a microwave, fridge and sink. The room was clean and resonably quite. We were on the upper floor overlooking the pool area. The hotel was convenient for a trip into Miami and also for the Everglades National Park.... More

It served our intention to visit the Everglades park, so the location for us was great. The service is good and the rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast was ok. The stay should be much better if you can use the pool as it is nice and inviting. Virtually there is nothing nearby, some fast food restaurants and gas... More

We are repeat visitors to this motel. It is at the right spot to visit the Keys, Homestead Fruit and Spice Park and the Everglades. We spent four days on our recent visit. The motel grounds and public areas are well kept. The room was clean, bright and comfortable. The room had wired internet which worked well and the lobby... More

Location is very convenient for visiting the Everglades and the Keys, and the price is very reasonable; also within short driving distance to restaurants and shops in the Florida City/Hempstead area. Hotel is clean and pool is well-maintained. Nothing special, but a good value for a convenient location.

Family of 4 stayed here for 3 days while visiting the Everglades. I was very happy with the hotel and the value. Loved that there was a sink outside the bathroom; it was super convenient. The beds were extremely comfortable (was not too soft). It is located only 1 mile from Walmart and had many dining choices. Only downside is... More

Family stayed here for 3 nights while visiting the Everglades and Miami. Was very happy with the hotel and the value for the price we paid. Personally, I thought the beds were the most uncomfortable that I have ever slept on so I would choose not to stay here again but if you like a super hard bed you won't... More
