We were visiting friends in the keys, but all hotels in the keys are $150 or more a night. Florida city is the lat city before the keys. Key largo is 15 mins from here and key west is 2 1/2 hours. The closer you get to key west the more money a Night the hotels are. This holiday inn was very clean very nice employees. The beds were so comfy nd pillows. The air conditioner runs quite. We didn't eat there cereal , Danish , fruit . Very close to all you want to do, but will need your own car.

My wife and I stayed here on our way to Key West. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. It is near the road to Everglades National Park as well as US 1 which heads to the Florida Keys. On our next trip to Florida I would stay here again.

My fiance and I chose this location based on our friend Isabel's recommendation. We usually stay in higher end hotels but this was close to our destination. We were both pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and extremely clean. Our room rate included a hot breakfast, which included eggs, waffles and such. We will definitely come back next time we come this way.

Not the greatest Holiday Inn Express, but close to the keys. The general area around the Hotel is depressed and only venture to Walmart if you must have something, then run in quick, go in pairs and keep a close watch out of your surroundings. I am retired Law Enforcement and I was a bit nervous. You can go a few more miles down the road and be in a better part of town with a lot cleaner Walmarts. The hotel was clean for the most part, carpet is showing its age with stains. We got a room for three to use the pull out bed and what a nite-mare that is, the bed is only good for about a 5 year old. Then they actually tie the mattress to the frame so you can not take it off and lay on the floor where it would be 100% more comfortable. It is like they want you to be miserable with the bedframe bars sticking you in the back. I spent three nights on that pull out and it took several days to recover. I fully believe I would have done better on the floor. If you have three people, forget that pull out, being a sleeping bag for the floor. Better yet, spend $50 more and stay in the keys at a better hotel. The staff were very nice and friendly. I did ask if they had a mattress that I could just lay on the floor and was told that she would rig our room when she found out, she never did so that was poor customer service. I think that this hotel is used by people as a stop before the keys, and so people will probably not return so do they really need to go out of their way to please? Probably not. We made teh best of it but I'd advise not counting on that third bed if you need it.

Dear Ranbud,

To be perfectly candid, you are correct that our sofa beds are not the most comfortable, especially for an adult of normal size. For this I apologize.

I am glad you found my staff to be very nice and friendly. When you return to South Florida please speak to me directly and I will see if I can arrange for a much more comfortable stay for you.

Dear GrandDManchester,

I apologize about the plastic mattress cover. The housekeepers are in the process of replacing them.

I am glad you liked our location, as we are the southernmost hotel on the Florida mainland before jumping off to the Keys.

Hope to see you on your return trip.

We stayed two nights so that we could visit the Keys before driving through the Everglades to Naples. The hotel was ideally located for this trip. It has eating places within easy reach and it is clean with good facilities. Free cookies were available in the lobby and the breakfast was adequate. I find the use of recycled crockery and plastic cutlery annoying in what is aspiring to be a class establishment. I accept that it was very reasonably priced but surely "proper" cups and knives and forks would not be too much to ask. The air con was also very noisy and the TV had limited channels. The are, however, relatively minor criticisms.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back look out over the pool onto a relatively busy road

Dear Dunteeching,

I am sorry you didn't like our breakfast utensils. I am currently working with IHG to see what alternatives are available to us within our brand standards.

Though some locations offer more, we have do 41 TV channels including HBO, HBO2 and local stations.

When you return to sunny South Florida to stay with us again, if your A/C unit is noisy please let us know and we'll gladly swap it out or switch you to another room.

Most Sincerely Yours,
