“Our Home in Homestead”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We were inn Homestead to visit family again. We stayed at Courtyard again. Our stay was nearly perfect…again. The service was everything that it should have been (with a minor exception: the drain plug in the bathtub was broken and it took two calls to get it fixed). This place is right off the Florida Turnpike. The staff is always helpful and eager to help. The cost is about what you would expect though we got a slightly lower rate through a third-party website. The property is newer and well kept. It has a small restaurant in the lobby area. The menu is somewhat limited but still a nice place to get a bite for breakfast or dinner. Breakfast is eggs, French toast, cereals or breakfast sandwiches. Dinner (something new for Courtyard) is burgers, sandwiches, soup, wings. It’s nice offering if you don’t want to go out. Room service is not available. The rooms are standard size but with updated décor. The bed is comfortable. The desk is two parts; a fixed portion and a movable section on casters. Very convenient if you need an L-shape or need a table elsewhere in the room. Wi-Fi is free but telephone calls are 75 cents. The room includes a microwave and a very small refrigerator, no freezer. The number of towels provided is somewhat limited. If more than 2 people are staying in the room, you may need to ask for more. We called ahead with a specific request for pillows and they were ready when we arrived. There is a shopping plaza across the street with a supermarket, fast food chain and several other eateries. Within a half mile are Red Lobster and Longhorn Steakhouse. This is the place that we stay when in Homestead.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a shower. A limited number have a bathtub but you have to ask.

We are most certainly happy you were able to give insight about your stay to fellow travelers that may be heading either to Homestead or through to the Keys. We do our best to ensure our guests leave us with big smiles and great memories. I do apologize however about the drain plug in the room, and we will be sure to double check this in our daily room inspections. Your review is one I am happy to go to the team with.

We loved this hotel. Rooms and public areas are sparkling clean and well kept.The rooms are quite big and have a fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Front desk staff is really kind and helpful. The hotel offers free wifi and parking.Great starting point to explore the Everglades and the Keys.
Since the hotel is new , some older gps devices might have trouble finding the address. Set the Hampton Inn as the destination, the Courtyard is right next to it.

Exactly what one would expected from a marriott. This one has even good location - right across a supermarket and Casavana (great Cuban food). The only thing that I didn't like was the lack of a bathtub... Would loved to soak in water and relaxed after a day in the Everglades.

We apologize there was not a bathtub in your room after the Everglades tour, but next time you’re here we hope you can enjoy a soak in our beautiful pool (outdoor, warm, beautiful scenery surrounding it). We are confident you would enjoy!

After a long, long day of travel (that should have been 4 hours tops) We arrived at the Courtyard in the middle of the night. By the way, did I say it was a long day of travel (cancelled flights, lightning strikes, floods, delays...it's all part of the adventure). We had planned on arriving early afternoon to explore the area around the hotel. But since arriving so late we went right to our room. We were staying at the Courtyard in route to the Keys from Fort Lauderdale Airport. The hotel is really nice and clean. The front desk staff was extremely helpful - giving us tips on our road trip to the Keys. If we ever take a road trip again to the Keys we will definitely stay at the Courtyard.

Checked in today on the 2 nd of nov for 2 nights! Nice check in nice rooms! As happy hour we decided to go for a drink( you are on holdiay so why not), ordered on my best european english 1 mageritta,for my self, 1 blue moon beer, 1 mojito and a ice jack! We got after a while ( and yes we where the only customers in a bar who could hold 135 pers) our drinks. Got 3 magerittas and a mojito, when we asked why 3? She the waiter ( so called as a waiter) said me in my best european english i told 3! Had to remind her about the other drinks but she manged( ok another 20 min to wait) but ok we are on holiday and so did not bother, she even excused here self and gave the other 2 for free ( nice gesture) so all fine you think! Then we ordered food, took again a while but whats the problem you are on holiday! 4 dishes, 3 together where served the ribs of my dad 20 min later, ok we are not used to it but still if you can not serve 4 plates on the same time start to wonder how it will be when the actual 135 guests are there! All good drink and food we got the bill! Nice on time of course! After checking 2 extra drinks where added, the waiter of the evening even told us with big pride she took the extra magertittas off as gesture! But again not good,.,, pff tiring when you on holiday! So we told her about the 2 extra drinks to much on the bill! And she easily admitted ok i will take it off! The. We had to pay! As we had such a lot of unpleasant experiences we only give here a small tipp! (We know we need to tip but come on there are limits)she was suprised when she saw the total with tip and start to argue with us as guest! We are guests no? Eventually we paid put our complaint ( big respect to i think was the duty manager of the evening whi was showing empathie) and went up stairs! However this hotel needs a big evaluation with his bar team! Being a hotel manager my self i was shocked! Rgds

My husband & I stayed here for one night on our way to Key Largo for our anniversary. I was very impressed with this hotel. Lobby was outstandingly clean and modern and very attractive. The outdoor sitting area with the waterfall was so peaceful and relaxing. The pool was gorgeous. The rooms were wonderful - very clean and the shower was huge and sparkling clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. They had a little store in the lobby that sold beer as well. McDonalds, Olive Garden, Chile's, etc all on the same road. People were friendly and helpful. Can't say one negative thing about this place.

Perfect location to make a quick stop if you are heading to Key West, Key Largo or Everglades National Park. Clean and spacious rooms, nice and helpful staff.
The only downside for me was no breakfast at the morning, but it's just me being picky.

We are indeed a great stop for anyone headed to the Keys. Since we are so close to Key Largo, and just moments away from US-1, our guests do see both the convenience and savings to be a very large advantage when traveling to Key West. Many thanks for commenting on our clean facility and spacious rooms- we enjoy knowing our guests are happy and their expectations were met. Being a Courtyard, we do not offer complimentary breakfasts in the morning, however we do invite you to try our Bistro for breakfast! It is a very nice breakfast and worth a visit!
