“room well worn, great breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

The check-in went alright but it certainly was no service with a smile, in fact the male receptionist didn’t stop chewing gum whilst he was dealing with his clients.
The room was small with outdated furniture, bend wall lamps, an old bathroom.
We had a small maintenance problem which only took a few minutes to be resolved but we had to wait 8 hours before the maintenance man arrived and tried to postpone it until the next day. On the second day we didn’t get any hand towels. On the positive side the court yard with the pool and gazebo was very nice and inviting. We enjoyed the breakfast. Although it is a ‘continental’ there was a great choice of breakfast items and it was tasty too.
The location is excellent just across from a shopping area. It took us less than 30 minutes to get to the Everglades National Park.

Room Tip: The Tropical Chicken fast food place across the road had very good chicken and ribs.

This hotel has been recently remodeled on Hotel Impossible. The lobby is beautiful and rooms are very clean and attractive. The included breakfast is fantastic with scrambled eggs, sausages, waffles, pancakes, etc. Our only complaints were that the pool was way too warm and there were very few towels provided in our room.

Checked in late - 10 before midnight. A woman who i believe to be the manager was on the phone having a fight with her man-friend. That was a bit awkward and very unprofessional. She did not acknowledge me but thankfully there was another worker to check me in.
It was very weird that there were only sheets on the beds. There were blankets in the dresser though, but we didn't need it. Shower drain was clogged so got to stand in our own filth and we were filthy after just completing a hike & kayak tour in the Everglades. The tub drained overnight, thankfully.

Room Tip: Our room #208 drain in the shower didn't drain. told the front desk as we were leaving so hopef...

Check-in is supposed to start at 1, but at 2:30, our room was finished and ready just as we were checking in. It is FL, but there are no blankets on the beds, only a flat sheet. Breakfast is good. Lots of options. Breakfast area gets crowded towards the end of breakfast time. Plenty of seats, but the serving area gets crowded.

Bring your own blanket. None on the beds and it was 60 overnight. Other than that it was a decent clean room reasonably priced.

We aren't too picky in this price range but it's pretty hard to sleep when your cold.

The Floridian is worth $75/night in season, and so my complaints are made with that clearly in mind. The property is older, but somewhat renovated, (few outlets, balky ventilating system, sluggish plumbing.) The MOTEL is fine for a stopover enroute to the Keys. It was mostly clean, quiet, and relatively comfortable. The breakfast was a real plus, with the fresh fruit bowl rivaling any free breakfast I can remember anywhere. However, our complaints are not tied to things that would cost any real money to implement. The first day, we needed to track down housekeeping to get towels and received enough for one person. I found her cart and helped myself to a second set. The second night, we returned home late, and there was again only one set. This time, we shared. Even more curious was a "leisure king room" which had no table, no desk, and only one chair. There were no rooms to move us to, but they found a spare chair in a storeroom to bring us. Both were very uncomfortable.

Ok hotel, clean rooms. Good value. We stayed for one night on our way to the Keys. Don't think many guests stay more than a night or two and for that it's a great hotel. Breakfast was average I suppose. Location is so so, lots of traffic around. A few restaurants in walking distance.
