Beware of this hotels deposit policy which they play fast and loose with the rules on Based on Trip Advisor reviews we booked this property through the Choice Hotels web site. The booking indicated that a credit card would be needed to secure late check in and guarantee the reservation. It was not clear that our credit card would be... More

We had never been to the Keys due mainly to our inability to decide on a place to stay. We will be forever grateful to a friend for recommending Dove Creek Lodge. Thanks to the great location, tremendous service and large rooms, my family will be returning to the Keys very often and we will be staying at Dove Creek... More

Spent a wonderful weekend, in this tucked away paradise in heart of key largo... The lodge is pristine, cozy, and the staff are warm and attentive. Arriving to our room just before sunset, we were afforded a magnificent view of the Atlantic oean and the untampered beauty of the mangrove trees from our balcony. There was tons to do on... More

The service was laid back but whenever it was needed it was friendly and professional. We originally were booked in a studio with balcony and after unpacking and taking a few photos (we were very pleased with the overall inn, our room, and our view), we discovered we had a problem with the toilet (perhaps the "Sewer" problem alluded to...

My husband and I arrived in the Keys in August for a little time away from our busy schedule. The drive from Ft. Lauderdale took only 90 minutes door to door. When we arrived at Dove Creek Lodge, our checkin was uneventful and then we went to our oceanview suite. Our room was clean and well appointed. The view from... More

Was looking the place over to plan another visit with family and found raw sewage coming up from the septic system Ugh! And the leak is likely running into the water in front of the bar. Hope they fix it - could be a nice place.

I am writing to clarify the comments about the sewer problem at Dove Creek Lodge. We do not have now, and have never had a sewer leak on our property. What the person actually saw was saltwater bubbling up through the ground at high tide. Our property is located directly on the ocean and we have a portion of our... More

We drove down to the Upper Keys for our 25th anniversary and were very glad to have chosen the Dove Creek Lodge. Our balcony faced the tropical gardens and the ocean and was the ideal place to sit. Our room was very nicely decorated and the public rooms were charming. You have your complimentary breakfast in the library with another... More
