“Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

The hotel looks like a motel. But it's really clean and convenient with it's awesome location at the Gateway to key west. We spend a night there and the hotel is around 20 minutes drive to the Everglades National Park. Before we set out to key west, this place is really good to be a midway point when you arrive Florida.

Room Tip: the price is really reasonable and it includes a breakfast

The room was extremely clean, as well as the bathroom. The staff at the reception and even the maintenance people were very friendly.
And the free continental breakfast (good quality) makes this place the best in the area for the rate paid

Thanks for sharing your great experience on TripAdvisor and for the highest possible 5/5 rating. We appreciate the recognition of our clean rooms, friendly staff, and complimentary hot breakfast.

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. 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!

We hope to see you soon!

Nice room with all necessary comfort even a in-room safe.Easy and free parking. Very friendly staff. Friendly people in the visitors center next to reception.
Breakfast rather basic. Free coffee end tee at any time.
Small but clean pool, sadly no parasols present. Some sun chairs busted.
Great value for money.

We arrived on our way from Key West and stopping over before going to Naples. We wanted somewhere close to the Everglades National Park with easy access to Airboat rides, this hotel ticked all these boxes and at a very good price too.

The room was ideal for our purposes and the buffet breakfast a good starter for a day of fun. The location of the hotel is very good also if you want park up the car and walk to eat, we picked Mutineers which was excellent, although there are plenty of other choices. Finally it is very close to major shopping outlet, two minutes drive. Highly recommend and would use again.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be of good standard, choice mainly is do you want a ground floor or first room f...

Fairway does a good job for a local budget motel. The customer service, particularly Jay at the desk were great and very accommodating. The mattress were new, comfortable and we'll kept. The room is a bit dated, but new TVs helps keep it at a better than average level for a low cost room. We were concerned with the door to the room not shutting and a very big gap under the door that could easily let in the critters of southern Florida, but the staff was great and moved out room without an hesitation. Overall, safe and clean.

My family and I have been traveling to Florida several times a summer to scuba dive for years. My brother had a fatal scuba accident last week and I booked an emergency trip to take care of my brothers arrangements home. As you can imagine this is not a relaxing vacation but I needed to let you know that Jay and Carlos have been so pleasant and helpful that I am going to make sure this is our hotel each time we travel to Florida. I'm sorry we found this hotel under these circumstances but I'm sure glad we now know where to stay for a very clean room, pleasant employees and the best service in Florida! Can't wait to bring my family here.

Room Tip: The way this hotel is setup they have rooms upstairs that are a little quieter and more private and...
