“Toliet Problems and Wet man”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Had continuous problems with toilet flushing properly. Was offered the toilet plunger as a solution. Some safety concerns with what appeared to be a homeless man coming into the pool area. Otherwise, it had been a nice place to stay in previous trips as this was my second visit. Did not expect a 5 star hotel, but this year is was 2.5 stars and last year (2012) it was above a 3 star experience.

This was probably one of the best value places I have ever stayed. We used it having left the Keys, and in preparation for going to the Anhinga Trail (?) - probably the most family friendly informative walk in the Everglades. Big rooms, very clean, nice pool ... top place!

This was our last one night stop before heading to meet friends in their villa and it didn't disappoint. We always book somewhere with a pool and breakfast and both were great, though the breakfast area was a bit chaotic as it was in the middle of a thunder storm! Only negative is that we booked through booking.com and our price was queried by reception. We stuck to our guns though and got the discounted price eventually, causing a queue as there was only one member of staff on 'check out' duty.

Don't trust your GPS to get you there! It was after about 20 minutes of frustration to finally find it but well worth the stay. Get a room overlooking the pool. It's fantastic. Add free breakfast and this place is a bargain.

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.
