“Excellent location, good breakfast, clean room and pool.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

It is exactly what we were looking for when we have reserved. Friendly staff. When leaving the parking you are next to the Keys avoiding any city related traffic. Plenty of gas stations around. Though we didn't visit the Everglades this time the Travelodge has an excelent location for that too.

And parking right in front of the rooms is also viewed by some as a positive. We are glad we lived up to your expectations. Thank you for posting such a kind review of your stay at the Travelodge Homestead-Florida City.

Note, we will TRY our best to accommodate guests wishing to check-in earlier than 12:00 noon; you can call or walk-in and ask.

The white powder under the bed is for bugs. Located behind a gas station. First room old with stain linens. Second room filthy Capet. Some rooms may be nice, but the two that we were given were crappy. Before you check in you better go check out the room.

We believe responding to reviews shows that we are listening and we actually care; it's a way to reinforce the positive and change perceptions when negative; we have 88 rooms and 88 inspectors, every day. Negative feedback (which we do not always get) from each is very important to us.

As for dirty carpets, we have a professional company (Stanely Steamer) who cleans the carpets on a regualr/conitnuous basis we have laready converted about 20 rooms to wood floors and wish to assure you that we are working on converting more rooms to wood floor.

We have no excuse for the stained linens. We have informed our housekeeping and laundry department to be more careful.

We hope you will give us another chance to serve you better next time.

Please note that you can always check in early with us. Call us or walk-in and ask.

First the downside: it’s easy to drive past the entrance to this place, yes there is a great big sign on top of a tall pole, and another at ground level, but when you turn off the South Dixie Highway it’s like turning into the Mobil gas station. That said, that’s about the only down side.

Next the upside: this Travelodge is very good value for money.

Plus:

It’s ideally suited for visiting the Everglades National Park and John Pennekamp State Park. It's much closer to Homestead than it is to Florida City.

I booked a room via email, and the manager, Sunny Patel, could not have been more helpful. He reserved us a newly refurbished non-smoking, pet free room, with laminated flooring and king bed.

The rooms are basic but very clean. There are plenty of wardrobes and cabinets, a good TV, radio, phone, fridge, microwave and safe. The shower room was very good and clean. The bed was clean and comfy, with good bedding. There is a good stout secure door, and you park motel style right outside your room.

The included breakfast buffet gives a good start to the day. It’s self-service with a good variety of take as much as you want pancakes, toast, eggs, sausage patties, cereals, coffee, juices, and fresh fruit etc. You heat food in a microwave as you need it. About 90 seconds on full power heats the sausage nicely.

We didn’t use the pool, but several visitors did and seemed to enjoy it.

The wi-fi didn’t work for me, and late at night the reception supplied a cable to connect to the internet in the room. A couple of days later I found it was a problem with my laptop, but it was a useful to get connected at the time.

There are several places to eat nearby, we found Ruby Tuesday about three miles north to be good. Not far away is the excellent Robert is Here for fresh fruit, vegetables and snacks.

It’s just a shame I couldn’t take proper fish and chips and a Liverpool shirt back for Sunny.

Room Tip: If you have special needs, contact the manager and he will make sure you get the right room

So let me start by saying that I normally am not a fan of Travelodge and was quite hesitant to spend the night here as previous experiences in others have been unpleasant. However, with the amount of positive reviews, I decided we should give it a try. My family and I are driving down to the Keys, so the location of the hotel is perfect. The room was very clean, mattress comfortable, sheets spotless, Internet free..what more can you ask for at these rates. Although I did not have a chance to eat breakfast, it smelled lovely. The fact that it is complimentary was a shock to me, since most places nickel and dime you for everything.
What makes this Travelodge special though, definitely has to be the service. The young man that checked us in was incredibly sweet. Same can be said for the young lady present at check out. The owner who was also there during checkout asked me about our stay. It was this attentiveness that impressed me the most. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
