“Are u people kidding me??????”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This hotel is located at the back lot of McDonalds off a major highway. It is a hole in the wall. The mosquitos are so bad that walking 100 feet to mcdonalds you were eaten alive!!! In the morning pulled into Dunkin Donuts next door, there were drunks hanging out front with brown bags, I wish I had my gun with me I felt that unsafe! This hotel is located in a crap town that is dangerous and dirty! The reviews on here must come from those who are homeless or don't know any better, OMG! Go stay at the Hampton or Marriott in Homestead, so much safer!

If you want to know Everglades I highly recomend the hotel. Close to everywhere. Close to Florida City Outlet and travel agencies to show you the Everglades. They will give you discount coupons to Denny's. But you must rent a car.

Thank you for your very kind words and for the award of 5 greens out of 5. Thank you also for highlighting the proximity of Everglades and our hotel. We cannot ask for more other than to hope that you will return soon with us, this time with your friends and family. Look forward to the same.

(1) Please note that for ease of reservations, you can book directly at Travelodge Homestead-Florida City: call 1 800 758 0618 or email: tlflsunny@gmail.com.
(2) Also we will TRY our best to accommodate guests wishing to check-in earlier than 12:00 noon; you can call or walk-in and ask.
(3) Directions on some GPSs are misleading; please look for Denny’s in Florida City (401 SE 1st avenue, FL 33034). We are located behind the Denny's Restaurant.
(4) Don't forget to ask dedicated NAVIGATOR about special discounts at restaurants and popular local attractions such as Robert is Here (Fruit Stand), Coral Castle, La Playa Grill at Biscayne National Park and attractions in Key Largo (20 mins) such as John Penekemp State Park, Robbie's for Tarpon feeding on MM 77.5 and Bahaya Honda State Park on MM40 (lovely beach).

This Travelodge really surprised me! It did get great reviews on Tripadvisor but I was still pleasantly surprised. It's a motel type lodging and the rooms are all on the ground level. Rooms are updated with flat screen TVs, cable, refrigerator and microwave. Our room was immaculate as was the grounds. The swimming pool area was very clean. he A/C was quiet and worked great. There are many restaurants nearby and if you show your room key some places give you a 20% discount like Denny's and IHOP. We didn't eat breakfast there so I can't comment on that.
I will be staying here for any future visits here to see our grandchild..this will be our go to place!

Unsure abour location before we arrived (we picked from a map) but needn't have worried. A short drive to the Everglades National Park and enough choice of eateriea for evening meals. We liked:
* helpful staff at front desk, from providing advice or helping solve a problem
* free wifi but also two public computers with printing of coupons, boarding passes etc
* single storey so no overhead noise
* fresh waffles and pancakes from self operated machines

Approaching this motel by GPS was a little confusing "turn left on (whatever-it-was) Boulevard. There was no boulevard - it was the entrance to McDonald's, connected to another driveway connecting to the Travelodge. Maybe the GPS was a little off? Then there was the outer appearance - I've never stayed at a one-story motel. I envisioned being on a lonely back road with a creepy motel seen in horror movies.

I was wrong. This Travelodge was pleasantly surprising from the moment I entered the lobby. The staff was very friendly. There was a large area, indoor and outdoor, for the morning breakfast (included!). I was given a map of the area with locations that offered discounts to Travelodge guests. This Travelodge is conveniently located within the city and points-of-interest. My only point-off was for the unmarked "boulevard" confusion caused by the GPS.

The room was "accessible". It was very clean and had a lot of nice amenities. There was a small fridge with separate freezer compartment (that was a first for me) also ironing board, coffee maker w/coffee and condiments, microwave and digital-combination safe. The flat-screen TV was huge, although the picture quality was degraded some - the channels were analog. Maybe it was because of the "accessible" room type, but the bathroom was enormous and included plenty of towels, soap, shampoo and conditioner and a extra-size shower. The king bed was very comfortable and included more than enough pillows. WiFi worked very well.

At breakfast, the indoor seating area was packed. There was a nice breeze and made eating outside in the covered area a good alternative. The food was good, self-serve, with eggs, sausage, breads, danishes, cereals, yogurt, and assorted juices.

Factoring in the room rate and everything above, this Travelodge was a really good deal. Although reluctant at first, I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The accessible room will easily accommodate a wheelchair including the large bathroom/shower. The b...
