Balancing the earlier reviews of this property with the fairly consistently good ones that seem to have become the norm more recently, we decided to stay at H.I.Express Florida City on our way to the Keys; we're glad we did. We were pleased enough that, when we decided to stay in the area an additional day on our return from the Keys, there was no doubt that we'd choose this hotel. After two separate one-night stays, we will choose it again the next time we need accommodation in the area.
The property is very well-maintained; we observed none of the flaws reported in the early months of the hotel's opening, and, having read those reviews, we looked for them. We stayed in a room on the top floor on a night when the area experienced record rains, accompanied by high winds; we observed no leakage problems anywhere. The shoddy workmanship observed earlier must have been corrected in the interim, as we found no signs of it. Staff were consistently helpful and pleasant. Like others, we appreciated the wired, as opposed to wireless, internet access.
The one earlier complaint we found partly justified was that referring to the walls being inadequately sound-insulated; on our second stay we noticed, after muting a commercial on TV, a male voice coming through the wall. He was, apparently, talking loudly on a cell phone. He shouted, "Just call me," repeatedly. After a few minutes the noise stopped, but we note that it could be a problem in some circumstances. With that one exception, though, the hotel struck us as a quiet place, and we would not hesitate to return, or to recommend this hotel.
