“And only a year later - a real improvement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I rated this as a 3 out of 5 a year ago, so want to give a strong upgrade to my review. One of my biggest complaints a year ago was in the attitude of the staff, and WOW what a change! Everything just seemed cleaner, nicer, shinier, and better than the last time. I don't know if there was a change of management or what, but I will upgrade my overall review to an excellent. We were greeted very warmly at the front desk, and treated well during our visit. The pool area seemed to have been given some nice upgrades, so was a very popular place for guests. The complimentary breakfast was very good. This is an awesome and affordable location when coming and going from the Florida Keys or Everglades National Park. I have no doubt we will stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Convenient location for Everglades National Park and the Florida Keys. Room was clean, comfortable and beds were good. Had a pool side first floor room- 106. Patio area with pool and sauna were very well kept. Complimentary breakfast was good. Had no problem with wifi in our room. Hotel staff at the front desk were very accommodating. Great price and value! And if you are going to the Everglades don't forget to stop at Robert is Here and treat yourself to one of their many yummy milkshakes. This fresh fruit stand has all sorts of interesting fruit- you can't miss it on the corner.

This hotel is very convenient to Key Largo and definitely a better value than any we found in Key Largo. The hotel and our room were very clean and the room was quiet, even though it was near a major highway. The complimentary breakfast was enjoyable, with bacon and eggs along with the usual cereals and pastries. Afternoon cookies on check-in and a flat screen TV were a plus, too. Refrigerator, microwave, USA Today and wifi just added to the value.
