“Convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Location right at the marina is perfect if you want to take a snorkel trip, cruise to the reef on the glass bottom boat, or go fishing. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is older, and bathrooms could use a major remodel, but they were clean. Lots of good restaurants close by. Better than other lodging, since we didn't hear any road noise.

Room Tip: There's no elevator for 2nd floor rooms, so be prepared for the steps.

This Holiday inn in Key Largo was a nice stop. Although the building is old, they keep it up to good standards. The room was clean and well furnished. The property was well kept as well. the pool area and tiki bar were all very nicely maintained. This was not a luxury resort stay at all, but good for the money, I would return.

As others have said, this is a great location for diving. The pool area is nice and the restaurant offers a decent variety for a quick bite and prices were not too bad. The rooms could use some serious updating, especially the bathrooms. The bathrooms are the quality of a 2-star, drive up to your room motel. The rooms are moderately priced and should be cheaper, but are in par with other hotels of the same quality in the area. I would stay here again, unless something nicer came along. It wasn't a bad stay, just not great.

When checking-in I was given a paper with the name of the wireless connection and a code. When searching for the hotel on my laptop and checking list of wireless connections to connect to I found "Holiday Inn", entered the code and was on internet. Surfed web checked my bank account transactions etc. Later the "Holiday Inn" wireless did not function. I informed the front desk and they said "Don't use that! It is full of viruses and not the hotel's wireless. Use the Leisure Suites link that is listed on the paper." So evidently there is a link on wireless (very strong signal by the way) called Holiday Inn that someone evidently created to commit fraud and watch guests use the public wireless network. The desk told me the fraudster can even watch you enter bank details. Thing is, "Holiday Inn" link signal is strong in room and the "Leisure Suites" signal (the one guests are supposed to use) doesn't even have a signal in the room. You have to go outside and sweat over your laptop. So logically one thinks OK Holiday Inn link, lets try that. Wrong! That doesn't belong to the hotel according to the desk. After learning this I was under a big stress to find a non-public wireless internet connection to get to my bank site and change my password. Learned a lesson there. On public networks don't access sites like bank or others where you enter passwords.

The HI should have stressed that there is a very strong signal called "Holiday Inn" and not to use it. Use "Leisure Suites" even if you have to sit in lobby or go outside. When I complained that the "Leisure Suites" had no signal in room was told "Well this is the Keys, we are at the mercy of the internet provider". Well the fraudster had a good signal and he is on the Keys.

The hotel was average, very musty room and everything was damp. Average fixtures and bathroom. Nothing special and the price (like everywhere on the Keys) is inflated. There is absolutely nothing around of interest near the hotel being on the side of a highway next to fourth rate shopping plazas. I found Key Largo (and most of the Keys) to be one long strip mall with kitsch shops, overpriced gifts and fast food. Maybe great for divers but for nature lovers wanting to see wildlife and those looking for a walk on the beach the Keys are not a good holiday destination.

Room Tip: Check the wireless connection works.

This Holiday Inn is right by the marina. We checked in and went right to the glass bottom boat for the reef tour. (Be sure to check for coupons.) When we got back my husband was able to find a split fishing trip for the next morning. The Inn is well kept, everyone was friendly. We had a great dinner in the restaurant. The grounds are well maintained with a couple of pools. There were scuba lessons going on in one though, since diving is so big. Unless you just want to go to mile marker 0, I would recommend stopping at Key Largo and this Holiday Inn. Only issue was the road construction, which the Inn cannot do anything about.

I stayed in the Holiday Inn for 5 nights. It was a good hotel with a large tiki bar and pool in the back. Very nice and chill at the tiki bar. The location is great for diving as you're right on the boating docks and a 1-2 minute walk from your diving boats.
