As other people have noted, the hotel is in sort of a borderline area. But it is very close to the southern entrance to the Everglades (Flamingo) and the off street parking is good.
But the real reason to stay here is the people, and that it's an interesting and historic building. Staff was terrific, as was the owner, who is usually around. The place is quiet, food is excellent, and you get a sense of old Florida, which is pretty much wiped out in most places.
All the staff really went out of their way to do anything to make the stay enjoyable. You do feel like family, but without the cloying (to me) intimacy of a B&B.
