“A convenient location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

I recently stayed at the Best Western Gateway to the Keys while on a birding holiday in south Florida. Initially, I booked for 2 nights but later added 3 more which caused a bit of confusion at the front desk and required a room change. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff are helpful. The location is very convenient for getting to the Keys and the Everglades - I would not hesitate to stay here again if I were in the area.

Your review is greatly appreciated. It always amazes me the amount of guests, and groups we receive especially for bird watching. This time of the year we are normally busier than the summer months. Sometimes when we try to extend a guests stay, the room availability becomes an issue, but we always find a way to keep our friends here. Thank you again for staying longer than planned with us, and hopefully next year we will see you again.

We enjoyed our two day stay at the Best Western to the Keys, in Florida City. Food, staff and room was great. No complaints, the room was clean and looked freshly painted. The continental breakfast was fresh and there was cold and hot items.

Glad to choose this hotel for our night back from the Keys.

We made a last minute booking (like 45' before checking in), the receptionist was really kind and helpful. The room was big, clean and we were happily surprised by the breakfast in the morning. What a nice start for the day.

There are good choices for dinner around the hotel. They have an excellent private business center, with laptop, high speed internent and printer that works (believe me its not common).

Would definetely go back.

Staff definitely went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and welcome. Rooms were very clean and well-maintained. Excellent Sleeping on those Beds! Complimentary Breakfast was very good and generous. Coffee, hot chocolate, tea and cookies are available thoughout the day and night. Convenient access to the Keys, with a quick ride to Key Largo. Other attractions in the area are close...fun and interesting...staff will help with good directions. I will try to return to this hotel on my next visit!

Room Tip: Need to wait-out for a price drop...At $140 this is questionable; At $70 this is a bargain!

We had a 9PM arrival in Fort Lauderdale and rented a car to go to Key West. Wanting to enjoy the drive down we stayed at this Best Western as a starting point. Good choice. Clean hotel, decent room and the front desk staff very pleasant (this was a late check-in). The breakfast was good and got us on the road in a good mood. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom in good shape. Would have no issues staying there again. Did not use the pool or any other amenities. It was awkward to find, especially at night as it is set back from the highway. Cuts down on traffic noise but you have to be aware of your location. A McDonalds is across the road with 24 hour drive thru.

Room Tip: We used Travel Pony for the reservation and got a good rate.

I had left a less than favorable review earlier. We stayed here for five nights and the room was always serviced well and the Breakfast was always great and included Bacon and scrambled eggs every day. We had indicated a problem with the bathroom door and it was fixed right away. Management take customer concerns seriously.
The bed was comfortable and we both slept well every night. The inn is convenient to many attractions, particularly the Everglades National park and John Pennekamp state park. Things in Key Largo are a pretty easy drive Including a couple of large dive stores and many attractions like the African Queen.

Room Tip: As usual, it will probably be quieter inside the enclosure, around the pool and on the second floor...
