My husband was a little skeptical to stay at a Holiday Inn Express, but we were pleasantly surprised. We didn't spend a lot of time in our room, but it was perfect for us and our two children. We had a water view which was very nice. The pool is nice and the tiki bar is also nice. The marina... More

We were happy overall with our stay. The pool is kind of small and not fancy, but it is on the water, and the area is tastefully landscaped. I spent a lot of time happily sitting by the pool reading a book (and ooo-ing over the large iguanas you see walking around). Next to the hotel (and visible from the... More

After having checked in we discovered we had been given a room right across the hallway from a guest who had left a barking/howling dog alone in the room. We immediately headed back to the front dest to explain the situation. They were most kind and understanding, giving us another room without any hesitation. Overall, the hotel is clean, as... More

We stayed for 5 days and my kids were in the pool for every one of those days. Hotel is easy to find and you save a bunch from what you would pay in Key West. We rented a car and drove everywhere we needed to go to. Room was clean and spacious. We had 341 which is just to... More

This hotel was very clean and the staff was helpful. We enjoyed the fact that the hotel is on the same property as a restaurant and a marina. We went on a fishing trip with Captain Jeff of Catch Em' All...it was great for the adults and the kids! After 2 days we decided to move to a resort type... More

My wife and I spent two nights here recently. We were pleasantly surprised by the amenities and the size of the hotel for an 'Express'. The pool area was lovely, quite tropical complete with local iguanas and it was next to the inlet leading out to the Atlantic. An very nice restaurant right next door and dive boats leaving from...

Nicely located on the water in adjacent to a good restaurant. This hotel was well kept-up and included breakfast. The breakfast was sufficient but certainly nothing special. Staff was very pleasant. We would stay here again if in the area.

The cleaning staff is more interested in leaving you a tip envelope than emptying your garbage, same as last year, non smoking rooms smell like smoke. nice pool., great location, nice breakfast, clean , if you reserve a pool view room, make sure it is on the 3rd floor, all of the second floor windows are blocked buy palm trees
