The hotel was great. The staff was very helpful. The room was the best with a great view of the pool. We had a great time by the pool, comfortable chairs and tables pool side. Very close to the Everglades, and a liquor store 350' from the hotel in case you run out. A great breakfast was provided and the... More

They will greatly appreciate your kind words and I will most certainly recognize their effort as much as possible. Very glad you enjoyed our hot... More

We used this as a stopping point to/from the Keys and the Everglades. Really nice pool area, decent breakfast, very clean and quiet. No elevators to the second level, pool side rooms available. We stayed 3 nights over 4 and had a pleasant experience. Walked to Denny's for dinner, had pizza delivered one night. All in all, would recommend this... More

We booked this hotel out of convenience for our return trip from Key West back to Fort Lauderdale. This location turned out to be a great little gem. Staff were friendly, helpful and made you feel welcome. Place is well kept. Rooms were clean, bed was comfortable.

We wanted to visit the Everglades and this motel is very close. All staff - check-in, breakfast, check-out - very friendly. Room was spacious. Helpful with directions to my bank with ATM. Wish we had more time to enjoy the pool.

We had initially planned on staying at a different hotel chain in Florida but when they put their prices ridiculously high we found it necessary to try something else. We were more an surprised with this hotel. It was like the staff appreciated us staying with them and they made you feel special. I would choose this hotel right from... More

We stayed for 2 nights and found the motel to be very convenient to visiting Everglades National Park. We had stayed at a much more expensive hotel in Key Largo but we felt the Best Western provided us with much more value. The pool area was especially nice and provided pool towels. The breakfast was tasty and the room was... More

One of the closest overnight stays to Everglades National Park and before heading into the Keys. Clean, comfortable, spacious rooms and baths on attractive grounds. Friendly staff, too. We've stayed here many times over the years, and only wish that Best Western didn't require that they abandon their cheery tropical decor for the somber BW standard. The one and only... More
