“Fishermen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stayed at the Parkway in December to fish the back-country for three days. We docked the boat right at the motel and walked to the room. Ice, fuel and tackle are also available at the office. We liked the quiet area and it is very peaceful at night. The boat launch and live bait are only a couple of block away which is very convenient. We have stayed in the house and the rooms with the kitchenettes and have found them both very comfortable. This is the place to stay to get to fishing sooner and spend less time getting ready to fish. Bill always give us info on the hot fishing spots.

Room Tip: The house sleeps six or eight with a full kitchen and the two end rooms have a kitchenettes.

This is a great place to stay prior to and after an Everglades paddleing trip. We stayed here two days before our ten day trip. Very relaxed and clean. Bill and Geri are wonderful to talk to and can provide you with good advice about the area. Will be back for sure!

Clean, comfortable rooms. Very friendly owners. They were full of helpful information about the area and things to do with a family. We used the kitchenette to decrease cost.
The motel is in a quiet area of the island, very nice for quiet evenings. Excellent opportuinites for fishing, kayaking and hiking.

This is a motel, so expect noisy air com, low security doors, small bath room. Having said that, there are some other very nice things: the owners are very friendly and will provide you information about things to do, it is clean and you can see in the details that is maintain will love. We got a bedroom with kitchenette, which was quite spacious with two queen beds, a closet and some other pieces of furniture to storage stuff. You can order muffins which are really great (extra charge will be added to your bill) and will come with some fruit and orange juice. There are no hotels in Everglades, at least that we spotted, so I think this motel is a good choice. You can park just in front of your door and there is a café serving breakfast and lunch near by. Internet is free but you have to be outside, inside the room is always breaking down.

We stayed here after two weeks in Orlando with our family. Just what we needed after the manic Disney, Sea World experience. Very clean rooms with much better towels, bed linen etc than found in some expensive hotels. Bill & Geri are very welcoming and helpful - they could not do enough for us. Only problem was the mosquitoes - even then Geri loaned us a zapper for the room.

At $140, even in off season, price was MUCH higher than average given here. The owners were lovely and very helpful. rooms fine but air con inadequate for summer temps. (the muffins however are lovely). Overall, better to stay in everglades city at half the price as it is a nice village (dont let the word city in the name mislead you)

This is a wonderful little motel and Bill was a wonderful host. The room was lovely and clean and more than catered for our needs. The towels were so fluffy and the muffin and fruit basket were great, although as UK residents we weren't used to the noise of the air conditioning!! The local people were extremely friendly. We had only one issue and it wasn't with motel it was the time of year we visited - July - a nightmare for mosquitoes and not something we've encountered before but Bill did let us park directly outside the door of the apartment!

I would thoroughly recommend Parkway Motel and Marina. Explore the area - the people are great!
