“Good rest stop- close to Everglades/ Biscayne and Keys”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

The location is a great rest stop for checking out the National parks, there are 4 nearby. The hotel is older, but it was clean and the staff was very helpful and nice. They have a nice pool area. The breakfast was good and attended too. The beds were comfortable. Nice restaurants nearby, I would recommend the Capri/ Italian restaurant it is great.
I think they could remodel this hotel, and this could be a great place. I didn't think too much of the city as we drove around, I wouldn't venture out at night alone.

Stayed one night as a stop over into the Florida Keys. Easy in and easy out with the highway. Few really nice restaurants for meals, best was Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Ice machine was a distance from room, otherwise good layout of facilities.

Wifi is fast, rooms spacious, clean, have tables, kitchens, refrigerators, and people in the pool were quiet at night. Breakfast is phenomenol. The place was very close to the keys and other attractions, easy to find and has security roaming around all night.

We enjoyed our stay at BW Floriday City. It was clean and the staff was professional and friendly. The breakfast was fantastic. Having the worry taken out of breakfast with our kids is something we can always count on with Best Western. It's a great way to start each day of our vacation. This was a nice stop on our way to the Keys.

This hotel is nicely situated at the beginning of the keys. It is nearby Everglades National Park and The Florida Keys Outlet Center. The staff was so friendly. Annie and Natasha pleasantly presented us with a "lootbag" with a bag of sweet and salty popcorn and a bottle of water. The rooms are a bit outdated, but there is a new flat screen TV which was much appreciated. There were some mystery hairs in the bathroom and on my pillow (a long blond one and I am a brunette). Breakfast was your typical Best Western fare. The pool was a nice bonus.

Room Tip: WiFi signal is intermittent. There is a business center which was really helpful.

This hotel was the best. Only problem was internet not working. This is OK if you are trying to get away from that. All employees that I spoke with were kind and courteous. My stay was for relaxation and I was able to do that. Thank you everyone for the pleasant stay.

I'm thinking this hotel was recently redone since it was very clean and updated. The rooms were excellent. The hotel was fully booked since it was lobster season but the check in and out went very smoothly. The only issue I had is the breakfast bacon could not be eaten. It was extremely chewy.
