“Great alternative to Key Largo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

We stayed here for a dive outing with our son to get to a reasonable price. We've found at peak season KL hotel rates for name brand hotels are out of sight! Hotels that normally have a $139 rate on a dive deal have no deals and are $279... plus fees! There are places in KL that are very low priced but I've never heard of them and reviews were mixed. So we opted for the longer drive (25 minutes) with a brand we know. The hotel is a little on the old side but it's been well maintained and was kept to the HIE level of cleanliness and comfort we've come to expect. And the people are as friendly as ever. Shower and internet was great and beds were very comfortable.

We'd do this again.

Chris

Dear Sailright,

Being so close to Key Largo is one of our assets. I hope you had a great time diving.

It is nice to see you enjoyed our free internet service and that your bed was very comfortable.

Please stay with us again on your next dive trip to the Keys.

Stayed overnight when on our way to the Keys and it was great. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The entire hotel was VERY clean. Comfortable beds and yummy complimentary hot breakfast. The pool/pool area is very nice & clean also.

Room Tip: They're all good

Rooms were bigger than usual on a HIE. Location was perfect, right on Highway 1 and very close to the Florida Keys Outlet.
Parking was free and breakfast was HIE standard, with hot and cold options.
The rooms were clean and beds were very confortable.

The man at the frontdesk was nice we called 12.10 at the night. He had one room left it was a handicap room, at first the room seemed nice. But when i took a closer look it was terrible it was pee on the outside of the toilet and when i took up the toilet seat it was poop under it. Awful!! The cleanliness was terrible last time at this hotel.

Dear Noholiday,

What can I say? This is absolutely unacceptable that you would find such a dirty condition. I apologize profusely.

I spoke with my executive housekeeper about this incident. Though I do spot inspections myself on a sampling of rooms, I re-confirmed with her the critical importance of ensuring ALL rooms are ready for occupancy, which did not happen with your room.

We will be doing some high-intensity training to ensure the housekeepers are doing their job correctly.

Again I am sorry for the experience you had. Please, next time let us know of a problem like this as soon as you notice it because someone on staff will come to your room immediately to clean up such a mess. If I had known you had experienced such a horrible condition I would have made some type of compensation for you.

Most Sincerely Yours,
Brad Forsyth, General Manager

We were visiting friends in the keys, but all hotels in the keys are $150 or more a night. Florida city is the lat city before the keys. Key largo is 15 mins from here and key west is 2 1/2 hours. The closer you get to key west the more money a Night the hotels are. This holiday inn was very clean very nice employees. The beds were so comfy nd pillows. The air conditioner runs quite. We didn't eat there cereal , Danish , fruit . Very close to all you want to do, but will need your own car.

My wife and I stayed here on our way to Key West. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. It is near the road to Everglades National Park as well as US 1 which heads to the Florida Keys. On our next trip to Florida I would stay here again.
