Well worth the money. Room was very clean and kept up for an older motel. Continental breakfast better than most. Employees very helpful.

Outstanding quality accommodation - very clean, friendly staff, fast broadband and breakfast included. What more do you want? What is surprising is that guests generally stay for one night en route to the Keys so why should the staff bother? But they do and Sunny and his team deserve an award. One request Sunny - can we have marmalade at breakfast as well as those sweet jellys?

We care because we are in the business of hospitality; and, this business is about giving before receiving. We are also trying to change the notion that we are a "transient" stop to make it into a destination of some sort: our central location to almost all South Florida attractions (the keys, Everglades/Biscayne National Parks, Miami and the Beaches are all 30 mins to an hour's driving distance from our location) makes it easy for guests to make day trips and come back and enjoy the comfy, cozy atmosphere of our motel, not to mention a lot of good local restaurants.

As for the marmalades, there are many different types, please let me know ahead of time when you come next time and I will ensure that I have it of your choice and for you. Look forward to it.

After going to the Everglades Park, we choose to stay at Travelodge. This is a great, clean, cozy hotel. There are gas station and restaurants as well. I left my keys and they mailed it to me! I really appreciate for their help! All in all, it is a nice place.

Wow! Five out of five bubbles, we could not be happier to receive such praise. It is guests like yourself that drive us to be the best, and go above and beyond to make sure your travels are as smooth and enjoyable as possible, even after you leave our hotel. That includes making sure that forgotten items, such as your keys, get back to their owners. We all know how stressful travel can be and we are happy that we could provide a cozy and comfortable place to recharge and enjoy. We hope to see you again and once again thank you for your kind words.

When we first arrived, the hotel looked a little run down from the outside. It is a little older of a hotel, but the owner and his staff obviously care about the hotel and their guest. The initial welcome was outstanding.

The hotel was clean, it was well lit, and fairly well modernized inside. The service was terrific, and the breakfast was very good.

Thank you for taking your time to review your stay with Travelodge Florida City-Homestead. As the old adage goes, never judge a book by its cover. While we cannot turn back the hands of time, we are constantly making cosmetic upgrades to our hotel that incudes fresh paint, landscaping, and little touches of art in order to keep our hotel as welcoming as possible. But we didn’t stop there; we have new headboards/furniture, pillow top mattresses, and fast Wi-Fi connectivity available, all upgrades that are not common even in the more expensive hotels, all at no additional charge to our guests. We thank you for your kind words, and for awarding us the highest rating of five out of five points. It is always great to be acknowledged and appreciated for our superior customer service and the hard work that is put into keeping our hotel in top form and hope to have you return soon.

We were unable to book accommodations in the Keys until the next day so as many are left to do, we took a room in Florida City for the night. We noted the Trip Advisor award so checked there first as the street has a number of offerings. We were quite shocked by the rates being charged but I guess they "have you" so people pay it. They did offer us a slight discount which they still honoured after we checked next door at the Quality Inn and the desk agent did not have the authority to match or beat their price.
The service was excellent and very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is older but the motel style was actually convenient for driving up and unloading. The room was average but it had a fridge and was clean and comfortable.
The comp breakfast was a nice bonus and makes the rates somewhat more palatable.
Overall I guess it is just the value/cost that was the real issue, but it is on par with other area properties.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back as the hotel is near the highway so traffic noise could be an issue.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with Travelodge Homestead-Florida City, we understand that there are many choices when it comes to accommodations, and we strive every day to make sure that we separate ourselves from the pack by providing each and every guest with unmatched customer service and attention, as well as superior quality in room accommodations and comfort. Like every other type of business, we are not immune to the supply and demand structure that dictates our prices, especially during peak season, but we try our best to keep our prices reasonable, and as you mentioned, we were able to extend a price reduction. None the less, we are happy to know that you enjoyed our extended hot breakfast and hope to welcome you back soon.
