Stayed at the Parkway Motel in Chokoloskee for a night in early May to do some exploring and fishing early the next day. Had a very pleasant experience here. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice bathroom with nice shower and clean water. Good size rooms! The A/C works very well! You can park right in front of your motel room door which is nice if you arrive late night during the summer season when mosquitoes can be pesky!
Great location in Chokoloskee. Very close to the old Smallwood store/museum, close to the Kayak rental/guide center, close to a Marina and still close to the Island Park Marina. All of the best spots on Chokoloskee are within walking distance. We walked everywhere. Of course if you want to drive, you can!
Arrived at the motel to see my last name posted on a motel room door indicating which motel room was reserved for me. The door to the room was unlocked with the keys placed inside the room on the table. The room was all ready, except the fridge wasn't running. Drove around the island to get a feel for the area and came back to the room 1 hour later and the fridge was running great and Bill and Jerry even left us a bucket of ice. During the time we were gone for that hour, they fixed the fridge and they also left us a nice little fruit and organic muffin basket and placed an orange juice in the fridge for us!
Chairs and a table outside the motel room door were nice to sit and relax on island time.
Awoke the next morning right before the sun rose and sat out in the chairs outside the motel room door and awaited the sound of the roosters crow for day. They were right on the money! As soon as the first beam of light appeared those roosters let you know it's time to get up for a wonderful day of exploring and fishing!
Will be back!
