They've put a lot of money into updating the hotel facility in the back of the property. The only reason for the 4 star is the front end/reception building, the exterior needs as... More

We decided to drive down and stay a night on the keys after disembarking from a cruise in Miami. Searched for rooms on the drive. We were hesitant to book here because there were a lot of bad reviews. However, newer reviews indicated that recent upgrades had significantly improved the resort, and there were very few options left for rooms... More
