“Handy location; OK hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

After looking at reviews between Homestead and Florida City hotels - to find something close to Everglade entrance - this seemed to be the best choice for the prices quoted, plus I had points to get one of two nights free. King bed room was huge and reasonably clean, and sheets were soft and comfy. Towels were a little ragged but large and thick enough. Sink didn't drain very well, but maintenance took care of it while we were out for the day. Breakfast was handled by two people who were very pleasant, friendly, and efficient, keeping things refilled, fresh, and cleaning tables quickly. I even complimented the woman for the great job she was doing, keeping up with the guests....much better than 4 women did at our previous hotel in Naples! a few restaurants were close by, though we found a much better selection of chain restaurants only 3 to 4 miles away that we felt more comfortable at and in what seemed to be in a safer area. The hotel's proximity to the Everglades was perfect.

In researching the available hotels in the area for my stay, this hotel, including its rates, beat out the competition. Once at the location, and driving around the area, very pleased with my selection. Felt very safe and room was clean and orderly. Breakfast in the morning was pleasing. Hotel staff were very accommodating and welcoming.

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.
