I'm not a motel person. They're usually dingy, dirty, dated and inconveniently located. The Everglades City Motel is none of those things.
The staff in the office were excellent, giving us details of shops and restaurants in the area, the password for the free wi-fi, and some other pointers upon arrival.
The building is your typical motel 'u' shape, but the rooms are large and nicely furnished. The room for our group of four people had two large comfy beds, TV with cable, fridge, microwave, air-con, and a dining area. The bathrooms are large, with quality stone surfaces and tiles, plenty of soap/shampoo/body wash, and a feel that is far and beyond many hotels I have stayed in.
Housekeeping was exemplary, with crisp white sheets (surely a recipe for disaster in a motel??) clean floors and surfaces, and a spotless bathroom. The housekeeper left a small handwritten note outlining her gratitude for any tips left by guests- and we were happy to contribute.
Everglades City is a small town, and in January there are limited options for dining out and shopping. The Motel recommended Camellia's, which turned out to be a fun-and-quirky pub/grill right on the water with great quality food at ridiculously cheap prices, that also won the heart of our vegetarian travel companion. If you're looking for affordable, quality accommodation while you visit The Everglades, this place won't disappoint.
