Snuck away for a quiet weekend in Homestead, July 12 and 13. Charming turn-of-the-century hotel, decorated with knickknacks from the era . Plenty of off-street parking behind the hotel. We stayed in a corner room on the second story. The room had all the usual creature comforts...HDTV, icy cold AC, nice toiletries, great water pressure in the shower, wireless wifi. Basic but satisfying continental breakfast in the morning, as well as a full-service restaurant serving "down-home" food (which we didn't have the opportunity to try).
The exceptionally gracious host made the stay so comfortable and enjoyable. You don't get such "want-to-please" service in a chain hotel. We'll be back!
