I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologize for the wifi during your stay, towards the end of July our local provider was upgrading our service but apparently took longer than they said. I'm glad that the extra sink located outside the bathroom made things easier. Hopefully when your return sometime in the future you'll enjoy our upgraded wifi service, and maybe relax again by the pool.

We flew in from Ft. Lauderdale and stopped here on our way to the keys! This was only an hour from the airport and only 30 minutes from our next stop, John Pennekamp State Park! This was a nice stop on our way to the keys! The rooms were clean and it had a nice little breakfast! Will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips!!

Clean room, very good breakfast, we had a very comforable stay at this hotel. Good location, easy to find after a long flight to miami. Very good location for a trip to Key West, different restaurants in the direct environment.

Always happy to hear when a guest enjoyed their stay. I also love the variety of restaurants around the property. We are working on getting discounts with more local restaurants. So when we see you again, ask front desk to see what we have new.

The staff was very accomodating. Changed our room for us. Helped find coupons , maps and areas of interest in the area. Every time we asked a question about the area the staff was knowledgeable and helped us get all discounts that were available. Too bad they did not have a property at Marathon Key where our final stop was.

We stopped here on our way from Sanibel and after having spent the day at the Everglades. Our next stop was Key West. It is perfectly situated for an easy on off access. The room was nice the pool was refreshing and the breakfast was delicious.

I am always pleased with the reception and help from Annie. The hotel staff overall is very helpful and nice. I choose to stay at that hotel every time I visit my family because of the consistent staff and pleasant personalities. They are accommodating when I needed to change rooms as my mother needed a first floor due to her age and health.
