We stayed here two nights in Nov while visiting the Everglades.

The room was a good size and clean. The hotel presented itself well...with a bright and clean lobby and nicely manicured grounds. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The pool area looked nice but it was too cold to use during our visit. We didn't stay for any breakfasts as we were out early each morning.

The beds were not very comfortable- nor were the pillows. Wi fi did not work in the room- but would work in the lobby or at the pool area.

We did not feel comfortable driving around at night in the towns surrounding the hotel. ( Homestead and Florida City). The hotel itself however, was well lit and felt safe.

There is not much near the hotel- although we did find a Starbucks and Walgreens very close by.
Overall, It was a good base for exploring this side of the Everglades and there aren't too many other options.

This was an okay hotel. Not quite up to the Best Western standard we've come to expect tho. The room was clean. There is no wifi in the rooms, the desk person seemed surprised I would even ask. It is available in the lobby and pool area only.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The room was a good size with a little kitchen area with a microwave, fridge and sink. The room was clean and resonably quite. We were on the upper floor overlooking the pool area. The hotel was convenient for a trip into Miami and also for the Everglades National Park. There were plenty of things we'd have liked to do during our stay but could not fit in. The free breakfast was excellent with a good selection and scrambled eggs and another hot option which varied from day to day. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool area is good.

It served our intention to visit the Everglades park, so the location for us was great. The service is good and the rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast was ok.
The stay should be much better if you can use the pool as it is nice and inviting.
Virtually there is nothing nearby, some fast food restaurants and gas station.
The price was very convenient.

We are repeat visitors to this motel. It is at the right spot to visit the Keys, Homestead Fruit and Spice Park and the Everglades. We spent four days on our recent visit. The motel grounds and public areas are well kept. The room was clean, bright and comfortable. The room had wired internet which worked well and the lobby also has a wireless internet service. There was a small sink beside the microwave and refrigerator making meal preparation convenient. Breakfast is ready early and that is a must for us. The motel is well staffed at all times. We always get a room where we can have the convenience of parking outside our door. We enjoyed our stay.
