We stayed here before heading to Key Largo and points south ... this hotel was in a great location for our trip. We liked this hotel a lot ... it was newer, modern, clean, safe, beautiful rooms and interior areas, and with extremely friendly and helpful staff. We were upgraded (due to Gold status) to a very nice, well-designed, large king suite with sofa and two large TVs. They had two free use Apple computers in the lobby. We liked the lobby layout and the nice private areas where you could watch TV or visit with others. The exterior seating area was also very nice. It had a small pool. We really liked the safety of the hotel and surrounding area, especially compared to points a mile or two west; we like to walk around after dark and it was a pleasant area to walk. Although we won't be in Homestead again, this hotel would be our #1 choice if we did.
