Enjoyed our stay here while touring South Florida. Good central location and well kept clean hotel rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Price was reasonable.Would certainly consider this location again in the future.

Reasonable price for a poolside room, nice pool and hot tub, good free breakfasts, pleasant looking all around, only about 15 minutes to the Everglades and about 40 miles south of Miami. Rooms are clean and kept clean routinely.

Room Tip: Poolside is nice but not essential as all rooms open to the outside and pool is not far from any.

It's a good value for those looking to save money in the high price point Miami/Keys area for hotels. It's an old style motel with outside entrances rather than inside hallways. I just needed a place to sleep that was safe and clean given I wanted to participate in high season late night/early morning ranger programs in the Everglades. The room was sufficiently clean, and traveling solo as a woman I felt perfectly safe. I thought the room was surprisingly quiet, and having the microwave/mini-refrigerator is always an appreciated benefit.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are quieter given the major roads that run parallel to the sides of...

Good location for many things - quick drive to the keys, to the everglades and to Miami. Overpriced but common for this area. Breakfast good but eggs poor quality. Good room, would stay again. Staff friendly. Booked a crib and they did not have it in the room on check on.

This hotel is homey and comfortable. A perfect location for travelling south down to the Keys or West to the Everglades. Started our day with a great free breakfast at the outdoor patio by the pool. Travelled to the Keys and back then went for a dip and a hot tub. Next day down to the Everglades and an airboat tour. The only thing missing was the great travel pamphlets rack for the area. Clean rooms, happy staff, good breakfast array.

Not as nice as it used to be. We have stayed at this hotel on and off for many years, and over time the rooms have become more run down. It didn't smell very good. We felt like it should have been cheaper. We probably will not use it again.

Fantastic place to stay. Very reasonable price and great location, service, quiet, and friendly staff .It is right on route one on the entrance to the keys. I went to everglades as it was also close to that.
