This Holiday Inn Express is located about halfway between Key West and the mainland. Although it appears that there is not much else around the hotel, there is a nice restaurant right behind it. The room was well equipped and the complimentary WiFi worked great. There is also a complimentary breakfast which seems to be above what you normally would... More

Our experience with this hotel was wonderful, close to all kinds of things to do. Right on the property was a restaurant and opportunities to snorkel, paddle board, kayak. Tarpon Creek marina was very helpful about how the weather effected snorkeling. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful. The night front desk manager gave us some restaurant suggestions and...

Overall, very clean / new! Fantastic location. Not a cheap place to stay during peak times, but very nice! Located right on a cove with seating area around to enjoy the water. The staff was very nice and welcomed us like we were family.

Our family stayed a week and found the staff to be friendly, the rooms to be clean, the pool to be clean and the breakfast acceptable. This hotel is a great base camp when you are on vacation and have a schedule full of excursions. On the days we didn't have plans, we lounged by the pool enjoying the drinks... More

This hotel, IF you go at "off" season high peak times, is so good, it's almost like an all inclusive! The rooms are very comfortable and laid out nicely, enabling great views of the ocean.The free breakfasts are very nice, with lots of selections, fresh fruits and yogurts, hot foods that change slightly. The on-site restaurant, The Tarpon Restaurant, has... More

The hotel was very clean and comfortable, great breakfast and friendly staff. Will certainly do it again. They have a restaurant adjacent to the hotel which is very good as well not to mention convenient.

This is your typical Holiday Inn. The staff was friendly and the pool was salt water. The breakfast was decent each morning. Our room was clean. There was always parking and the hotel is right off of the main drag and easy to get to. I am sure that there are nicer resorts in the area, but for our short... More

Comfortable hotel though pricy for this type of hotel because of the area it is in. About an hour ride from Key West. We stayed here to avoid even higher prices in Key West. It has a restaurant and bar but we found a better restaurant directly across the street.

We really wanted to stay at Tranquility Bay, but their rates were sky high so we chose the Holiday Inn instead. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is about what you would expect from the chain, but the tiki bar restaurant and marina in back were very nice. We ate at the restaurant twice and enjoyed good food, service and... More

Haging never been in the area I decided to stick with a chain hotel. I knew being in the keys was a little more expensive but I was really pleased with the price I got. Breakfast had more options than I expected as well for a HIE. They also had the snorkeling place we wanted to use right in the... More
