“Very decent hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

I really cannot say anything bad about this hotel. It was very decent stay, one night, on the way to Key West, FL (it's about 3hr from this hotel). Clean room, restaurant on premises. We do not use any amenities (no time).

This hotel is not up to the usual standard we associate with HI Express hotels and it is need of some refurbishment. It has a nice pool, but sadly the water appeared to be slightly dirty that made a swim unpleasant. The breakfast is good, although the breakfast assistant was overpowering and possibly seeking tips. The suite rooms are large although appeared grubby, but this could be due to brown carpets and brown furniture. There were also a few things that needed some attention from their maintenance staff in public areas and the room. The hotel is conveniently located directly off US1 and close to the Everglades; with a number of restaurants and also Walmart nearby.
This is a handy hotel while travelling to and from the Keys, but in need of some TLC.

Room Tip: A high room is quieter

We were pleased with the location of this hotel en route to The Keys. It sufficed our needs. The room was large, older vintage but everything worked and there were tea bags waiting for us!
WE found a take away close by for a light meal and had a good night's sleep. The breakfast in the morning was the usual Express fare but enough was there to start our day off.

Room Tip: Don't take a room at the back of the hotel as there is an all night bar there playing music

Very handy to Everglades NP. Large well-furnished room. Terrible drive in & access--sudden narrow driveway off hwy, or from back-of-building arterial, which we used most for best local connections, had to make 5 turns to get off property. Worst problem was that the bathroom light and fan were on the same switch, and the fan was exceptionally loud and blaring....bothersome during the night. Bedside light switch on left (room 114) does not function....had to twist bulb on and off. We also had to rearrange some wires/plug-ins to make left-side lamp work.

This is obviously an older hotel that has been made over. The public areas are warn. The halls are dark and the paint scheme is about the worst I have ever seen. I would say it was an OK place to stay for a night or two except for the prices. It is way overpriced for its location and quality. If you are in this area, you are probably headed to the Keys. There are much nice hotels further down for about the same price.

GPS took us on a bit of a scenic route, but finally called reception for directions. Room was typical until the lamp tripped out the lights. Reception was a little hamstrung without staff on the property to assist. Offered a second room with one bed for the four of us. Offered a third room as a result of a cancellation. Pancake machine is broken - not good news for the kids. Some inconveniences.

We were satisfied with our stay at this Holiday Inn. Unfortunately I couldn't give a 5 star rating because as other reviewers have said the beds are uncomfortable. However, the hotel is decorated nicely, clean, and serves a nice breakfast. I would stay here again if passing through and if the price was a little less.
