“Great hotel for overnight stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Stayed at the Travelodge between landing at Miami airport and driving down to Key West. Hotel was ideal, oldschool hotel/motel. friendly staff, more than adequate rooms which were clean and modern w/ cable TV. Free wifi is always a great bonus too.

Breakfast was what you would expect too. would highly recommend if you're passing through the area!

We believe in keeping old school values - all too often we can get engrossed in current progress, without realizing we are dealing with humans and values. Our equation for value is simple:
(D)eliver more than (E)xpectations..

Thanks for the highest possible award (5 out of 5 greens) for our Travelodge Homestead-Florida. Look forward to seeing you, your friends and family soon again.

Please note that guest can now book directly with us using the number/address mentioned under the hotel photo above.

Checking-in earlier than 12 noon is also possible; please call ahead of time or ask at walk-in. We will do our best

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We came here after staying for a night in an awfull hotel (dirty and smelling bad). It was great to get into a room that had a clean smell and a decent bed, with clean sheets and a clean bathroom. For me those are the most important things while staying in a hotel/motel/lodge, higiene and a decent bed to sleep in! And those were fine! Breakfast was like al other breakfasts we experienced in America... not so great, but that's because I'd love to see more fruit and healthy/tasty options and that's not the case in most hotels.

I have been traveling from Tampa to Key West and this was my first day of a long 10 day trip that included stays in Tampa, Miami, and Orlando and was with two families other than mine. As my fellow reviewers mentioned here, it is easy to miss this place (not the Dennys restaurant though). Two things specially comes to mind about our stay. 1. The property manager was kind enough to extend our check-out time as an infant we had in our party was showing signs of fever. 2. We received a call on our way to Key West saying that my friend has missed her iPhone under the bed sheets and would be able to collect on our way back. My friends from Dubai who were traveling with us rated their stay very high. One good thing I liked was transfer of our luggage directly to the room as each room had parking space in front and the property looked like a resort. This is not your five star hotel but the service is definitely worth praising.

And we have always said, we are not a high-end resort! But, as you have said, some of the traits of our services have been compared and contrasted with those of such hotels. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We go above and beyond -ask and we will try and comply!

Thanks for your review and for the highest possible award (5 greens out of 5) for the Travelodge Homestead-Florida City; we cannot ask for more. Look forward to your quick return.

Early check-ins are always possible, depending on circumstances. Ask as walk-ins or call ahead of time.

Please note you can book directly with us by calling/emailing at the addresses listed under the photo of the hotel above.

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.
