The hotel is a little off the beaten path, but a good choice for those seeking economy accommodations with a kitchenette. The Homestead is an extended stay type hotel. It's located in a business park, very close to I-95, overlooking a small lake. Upon arrival, check-in was quick and easy with our reservation made in advance online (Note that payment at the beginning of the stay is required). Parking was plentiful and the landscaping was well kept, with shady oak trees throughout.
We stayed in a studio suite that had one queen size bed. The suite was smaller than an average hotel room, but had all the basics... counter with two chairs, dresser, night stand, closet and a chair/ottoman. The bed was a little too firm for my liking and the two pillows didn't have much body. Sheets and bedding were clean and fresh, and towels were adequate for 2 people. The air conditioner worked well.
The kitchenette had a microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster, two-burner cooktop, cutting board, coffeemaker and sink (no dishwasher). There were a few eating and cooking utensils, a dish drainer and a strainer in the cabinets -- but no pots or pans that you could use with the cooktop. Perhaps something was taken by a previous guest -- or missing from our suite. The hotel's web site says that the kitchenette should be fully equipped.
Our stay included complimentary wi-fi, which was easy to log into and had a good connection speed. The room also had a flat screen TV with 27 channels via satellite including major networks, popular channels like ESPN and USA, some news channels and Showtime. Amenities do not include a swimming pool.
I'd recommend the Homestead in Boca Raton to travelers looking for a reasonably priced, clean lodging, whether visiting FAU, relatives or in the area for business. If you're looking for luxury accommodations or a resort for a vacation -- you should look a elsewhere.
