“Great people, great price, great room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

It was so neat to stay at this place instead of a chain. Yep, I would consider it a bed and breakfast. (Owner explained the difference to me...B&B does not have a separate entrance/exit) It only has 15 rooms. Owner collects antiques, so rooms were decorated with little special touches. Also lots of interesting items in lobby and bar/library area. Extremely clean. In a safe area, and owner watches the semi-private parking lot.
Our only regret was we did not stay long enough to visit their restaurant. Bet the food is great! The owner was a pleasure to chat with. He will help you in any way he can, and I believe has lived there all his life, so he knows the area. Such a great experience overall. Will definitely stay here next time we go thru. Note: It fills up fast, so you get your reservation in early!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2-twin room because all others were booked up. I am sure all rooms are excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice review!
I really appreciate the feedback. Sorry you didn't get the chance to try the restaurant as it is closed on Mondays. That means you will just have to come back and try us again:)
Thanks again!

This is a great historic hotel with lots of history. So much better than chain hotels, the owner is happy to help and share stories of his hotel and the area. He suggested places to go to and eat. Very quiet neighborhood not far from the main road and the Everglades National Park and Coral Castle. Clean Room, Internet Access, Refrigerator,TV and patio. Terrific place to stay!

Booked this hotel based on TA reviews and it deserves it's high ranking. So much better than a chain hotel, more like an old fashioned homely B&B with an interested, on site owner who goes the extra mile. My husband was unwell upon our arrival and I was immediately offered assistance to unpack our car. Our room was clean and comfortable, the air con quiet. We ate in on our first night, the food was really 'home cooked' the chicken soup was so good my husband started to feel better soon after.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back overlooking the car park, they are probably quieter, although the road...

We found this lovely hotel on Trip Advisor and booked it based upon the great reviews we read and we are very glad that we did. We were met by the owner, Mark, who took us to our room and later spent time to explain the history of this fine old hotel. If you are looking for a "cookie cutter" motel then this place is not for you, The room was clean and comfortable with television, telephone and a small apt. size refridgerator much like a modern hotel but at the same time exuded character only found in a bed and breakfast or historic hotel from a by gone era. The location of the hotel in the historic downtown and proximity to the Everglades Park via back roads iwere added bonuses. If we are ever to revisit Homestead we will look no further than this pleasant establishment.

Room Tip: Room 201 at the rear with patio door to balcony is very quiet.

I just needed a quiet place to stay on my way to the keys. This place was perfect. It had a quaint feel like a bed and breakfast.
Clean and comfortable with a historic touch. The owner was very personable. This was just what I needed after staying in the big name hotels. I would definately stay again.

We reserved this hotel after reading the reviews, and it is everything they say. Mark, the owner checked us in and then walked upstairs with us to our room to ensure we were acquainted with the AC, the door locks, the rear entrance and balcony, etc. and that everything was satisfactory.
That's a first for us and we do a lot of traveling. We've never had an owner, manager, or anyone go that much above and beyond.
It is a very comfortable, well decorated, quaint hotel built in 1904.
We had a light fare in the Bar/Dinning Room before retiring and afterwards Mark answered our questions about some of the local history. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. We are here for 2 nights, and I am sure we will be coming back. It would be nice to sit on the front porch and enjoy nice conversation.

Room Tip: We asked for one of the rooms with a balcony. Our room has a rear entrance out to the balcony, whic...

This historic hotel has a quaint feel and is in a quiet location. The room was well lit and had good AC and a fan over the bed. There was a large mini-fridge with freezer and a small table with two hard chairs. The common balcony was not appealing. We noticed little things that bothered us: no kleenex, no hand lotion, a stain on the sheets, no cups, no bath mat, a squeaky bathroom door that springs shut so that the bathroom gets very hot. The bed was fairly comfortable. The shower head was adequate and there was plenty of hot water. We had a good home-cooked dinner at the downstairs restaurant at a reasonable price, but we were disappointed in the key lime pie (not at all tart). There was a limited free continental breakfast of cold cereal, toast, and good fresh fruit.
