The BW Gateway to the Keys has been my hotel of choice in Florida City for almost 10 years now. It's very conveniently located at the tip of mainland Florida, convenient to both the Everglades and to the Keys. The reason I only gave it a 3 on location is that it's hidden behind a restaurant, which could make it hard for a newcomer to find. Also, if you enter from the "back," off Krome Avenue instead of US 1, there's no sign showing where it is. The area around it is very commercial but once you enter the hotel grounds, it's lovely and tropical, especially the pool/hot tub area. Most of the employees are very helpful but one older lady needs to learn to smile - this is a service establishment, remember? Rooms are average for a chain motel but the pool and hot tub area is really pretty and well kept. The price was very good, considering we were there over the holidays.
