My Wife, 8 year old Grandson and I stayed from 6/25/08 - 7/2/08.
This was our second trip to the keys and we were looking for economical accommodations. Our needs were a clean, comfortable room to use for showering and sleeping. Our room had two-double queen size beds that were quite comfortable to sleep on. There was a full size shower situated behind a door with a commode and a large mirror, counter and basin just outside from it. We were on the second floor end room facing the pool.
The pool was visited by our grandson first thing in the morning and whenever we stopped for a change of clothes or shower. It was very clean and taken care of throughout the day. My wife and I joined him on several occasions.
No phone in our room was not a problem because we used our cell phone for all our calls. The TV was a small 20 inch color set but had a good selection of cable channels.
The balcony overlooking the pool was a nice place to sit and watch our grandson splash and play.
The air conditioning was nominal during the heat of the day, but cooled the room well after the sun set. Being an end room exposed an additional wall and it faced west. There are louvered windows across the top front of the room that leaked air. If they would seal them it would probably make all the difference. Again for sleeping, we were pulling the blanket over us through the night.
An added bonus was “The Cracked Egg”, a restaurant located in the hotel parking lot. The restaurant was open for breakfast and lunch only. Nearly every morning we ate there and were never disappointed in the food. Some of the best biscuits and gravy I’ve had! Everything we ordered seemed to come with enhanced proportions…
We used the hotel for ‘home base’ during the week and had a full itinerary. Our room more than met our expectations. For the economy, location and amenities, I will not hesitate staying there again.
