It's hard to find a more helpful and caring host. At the end of the road through Everglades this cute motel is situated next to a small marina in Chokoloskee which seems popular for fishing. We had booked only one night, but we felt so welcome so we added on one more night to be able to enjoy a great fishing tour recommended by our host.

Stayed one night after driving out Route 41 from Miami; the rooms are well kept, extremely clean, Bill was a pleasure to meet and gave great recommendations for dinner & breakfast. How they came to own a place is Everglades City was great (I'll let them tell it to you). Just know that you will not be disappointed with a stay here!

Just stayed a few days at the Parkway hotel. The room are cute an comfoatable. These rooms are actually very nice for being at th eend of the road in the Florida Everglades. Bill is very quick to respond to any issues. We had a mosquito issue that was qucikly resolved by Bill. Obviously there will be mosquito's in the Everglades. The Hotel has a full service Marina and is a great jumping off point for eco trips and fishing.

Room Tip: I have heard room 4 has a Kitchenette. I would choose room 3 over room 2.

Easily reached by going South on State Rte 29 from I-75/State 84 or from the more natural US 41 through the Everglades & Big Cypress National Preserve. Read the reviews the fishermen wrote-they apply to is as well! Clean, spacious, comfortable beds; small 1950's motel kitchen, bath,& room redone by Bill & Geri Shelburne over the past 9am years in. modern & attractive fixtures, fabrics, and decor. Knowledgeable& helpful hosts, he retired from Busch Gardens, and she is a certified Green Clean Technician: that says it all.

This was a great place to stay after an Everglades paddling trip that departed from the Everglades Area Tours location within easy walking distance. We stayed here one night after the paddle trip into the Mangrove Tunnel and then left for a morning Dolphin and Wildlife tour that left from Goodland which is about 45 minute drive away.

Clean rooms. Bill was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and best places to eat. It would have been nice to have a Queen Bed option, but the full beds worked out fine.

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!
