“affordable place for a stop on the way to the Keys”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were looking for an affordable place to crash after our flight from PHL and that was on the way to Key West. Fairway Inn Motel perfectly the bill. We checked in late around 12am with Tynisha. She was very friendly and helpful with any questions and concerns we had. We had one issue in our room but was quickly resolved (within 5 mins!). David the manager on duty even swung by (mind you this was at 12am) our room to make sure everything was okay and made sure we were happy. Customer service was top notch. The room was very clean and provided all of the necessities (towels, shampoo, conditioner) and there was a fridge and microwave. Strong free WiFi was available as well. Continental breakfast was a bonus to get our trip going for Key West. Tynisha insisted we stop by the visitor's center next door and pick up some coupons for Key West. If you're headed that way be sure to stop by the center! Thanks Fairway Inn!

Room Tip: For $10 more you can upgrade to their premium newly renovated rooms!

Thanks for sharing your great experience on TripAdvisor and for the highest possible 5/5 rating. We appreciate the recognition of our friendly staff (both David and Tynisha), clean rooms, fast free WiFi, complimentary hot breakfast, and convenient location near the Florida Keys and Everglades National Park.

I'm glad David, our general manager, was able to get the issue you had during your stay resolved quickly. I'm also happy that Tynisha was so helpful to you during your stay. Tynisha is the most recent addition to our front office staff and she is turning out to be a star.

The Fairway Inn is a great economical stay. The price was cheap, but the room didn't feel that way. It was very nice, renovated and up to date. The service was also wonderful both when we checked in and checked out. Jay, the girl that checked us in, was extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here!

Wow, thanks for leaving such a great review on TripAdvisor. You summed our hotel up perfectly..."great service, excellent price."

Yes, Jay is an absolutely awesome member of our front office staff and we are so lucky to have her as a part of our team. I was happy to read that she was so helpful to you at check-in. Actually, she just won employee of the month for June 2014, and I couldn't think of a person who deserved it more! Friendly, enthusiastic, hardworking, responsible, and kind are all words that I would use to describe her.

I'm also glad you were able to stay in one of our premium rooms. Guest can now book one of these recently renovated premium rooms for a slight premium (usually $10 more per night) by visiting our website, emailing me at spatel@fairwayinnfl.com, or by calling 1-888-340-4734. These rooms include wood floors, upgraded light fixtures, new wall paint, new 32-inch flat screen LED TVs, new Simmons BeautyRest plush top mattresses, and upgraded bedding/linen. I consider these rooms the best value in town!

Basic motel for a good price, located near the Everglades and on the route to the Florida Keys. Rooms are basic with beds that have had their better days. Management told me they are in the proces of replacing the mattresses. Rooms are clean, friendly staff who are truly interested in your comments. Breakfast is complimentary, basic but sufficient. A pool is open for guests until 10.00PM. Nearby a lot of restaurants and a good sports bar.
Looking for an affordable rate and you can do without the luxury of a 4 star hotel then this is a good place to consider.

Thanks for sharing your great experience on TripAdvisor and for recognizing our clean rooms and popular complimentary breakfast which now features hot waffles, fresh fruit, warm oatmeal, yogurt, assorted donuts, eggs, and hot chocolate. Thanks also for mentioning our friendly staff. They really are interested in making sure each guest has the best stay possible. With regards to your comments on our mattresses, yes we are in the process of replacing every mattress in the hotel. We have at this point completed 40 rooms and the work continues. We are switching to Simmons BeautyRest mattresses which are highly regarded in the industry.

Guest can now book one of our recently renovated premium rooms for a slight premium (usually $10 more per night) by visiting our website, emailing me at spatel@fairwayinnfl.com, or by calling 1-888-340-4734.
