“Cheap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, this is cheap but I would recommend spending a few extra bucks for something better.

Bad area in town. Our room hadn't even been cleaned--had to get a new room. Dead roaches and ants everywhere, the towels feel like sandpaper, our sink faucet nearly came off because it's so loose, the shower barely works, the bedsheets had stains, etc.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!

This motel is in a seedy part of town. The breakfast is cheap white bread, and some cut up chocolate chip muffins from the day old store. Cheap coffee and some reconstituted juice. Not worth the trip to the office to get it. Bead was broken down and carpet dirty. No plug in bath tub for kids to take a bath, had to put a foam cup for a plug in tub. If money is the only concern than this may work for you, but for a few extra bucks your much better off staying some where else.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

stayed there this weekend after going to key west because it was cheap and i didnt want to spend 300 in key west ! big mistake !!! so nice everything in key west, fantastic vibe and then this. no way to check in before 2 pm and then just a shabby surrounding in the middle of nowhere. like nevada in the 1940s :) but !!! a bestbuy just around the corner and i 95 so we could get away quickly out of this nightmare.
breakfast only until 930 !!!!!!!!! what is this ? a correctional facility ?
it is called redlands but i would suggest redneck lands. homestead and florida city were terrible places even to drive thru. brrrrrrrrrr
hotel from the 1950s, slightly modernized with a 32 inch and hbo :) great !
big rooms, soooooo dark or you open the curtains and no privacy. ac working and clean sheets.
they had a pool ! did not see any corpses floating inside. (just to get the hotel's atmosphere:)
not worth more than 45 bucks what we paid so okay.
will take a hotel in key west next time !
that happens when you are too cheap and pay online for a shelter like this without refund:)
when you are o a budget it is acceptable .
when you are cheap it is an awful mistake :)))

Room Tip: get the super 8 at least on the other side of the road or even better get a room in a different city...

Place is old and and not relay being updated. Our room was not too (broken furniture) but fairly clean (the main thing for me). Upon check in the staff was rude, could not bother to even hang-up the phone when he was talking to his friend in Indian. By the way he was talking, it was clear was not on a customer call.

Location is good, as I was doing a trip to the National Park.

I don't like to run anywhere down but stayed here for one night on our journey to the Everglades and Naples and was very, very disappointed. I expected it to be clean at the least -it wasn't and in the corner of the bathroom were hairs not hoovered up, the bed smelt of cats and the breakfast was very basic - white bread toasted and coffee - no complaints there but it could all have looked much more inviting. I would urge the owner to give attention to providing a CLEAN environment and then would have no complaint as it was the cheapest place we stayed.

I'll looked for a cheap stay near the Keys and the Everglades and chose Budget Host Inn. The room itself was clean but bathrooms could need new fittings. Bed clothes and towels could also be cleaner. One towel had holes in it. All in all it was OK but it could be a bit cleaner. If you're looking for a cheap stay near Everglades National Park and you're not looking for 5 Stars this could be your chose.

Clean and spacious rooms. Good service and very poor breakfast. Do not take food from breakfast. High-speed Internet. A good starting point for Key West, where it is expensive. We spent two nights here. The advantages also include a gas station and close to the supermarket, where it is cheap.
