“a travelers oasis”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We stopped here to visit the Everglades and also on our way back from Key West. Poolview rooms best option. Away from traffic noise and you can walk out and sit by the pool and relax. Nice big pool area with tables, chairs and loungers. Rooms were clean and good size. Breakfast was more than ample and fresh. Coffee and juice available at all time and the coffee was good. My only negative would be the girl that checked us in each time. No smile, no eye contact. Did her job but with zero warmth. The rest of our stay made up for the cool reception.
There is a great seafood restaurant next door. Good food, service and reasonable.

We stayed her on our way to the keys and arrived very late. The staff was just as nice as had we checked in anytime. The room was clean and bed were comfy so we got a good nights sleep. We ate breaky there and it was adequate, except the powdered eggs..........Ended up back there super late the next day because of a nightmare experience at our reserved hotel in marathon key. The front desk agent was very nice and apologized for our experience since we were not going to get one from the place we left. This room smelled like fruit and was nice and comfortable again. It was really the top of line service at 1am in the morning that gave me to give it the extra dot!!

We spent three nights here on our way back to Wisconsin from the Keys. We used this as our base as we visited the sites in the area. The price was very good thanks to a Hotelcoupon.com rate. The hotel was very clean, the breakfast was excellent, and the pool area was very spacious--a great place to relax after a day of exploring. The pool was very cool--maybe too cool for some. They also had free washers & dryers for guests to use. We would definitely stay here again. It is not a new facility but is a great value!

Please explain why the industry has gone away from normal pillows to these oversized marshmallow type that are totally inadequate. They are not comfortable. Appearance seems to be more important than comfort.

My wife and I had an afternoon flight into Ft. Lauderdale. We were headed for the lower keys. I decided that I did not want to drive all the way in one shot. Florida City looked like a good alternative for an overnight stay. I was either going to stay at the Best Western or the Travel lodge across the street. Since the Best Western was on our side of Route 1 as you head south that was our choice. The entrance off of Route 1 is tricky. You need to slow down when you see the sign, get in the right lane, and get your directional on lest you get rear ended by the cars behind you. You cannot see the hotel from the road as it is set back pretty far from the road. Check in was a little slow as there were people ahead of us and there was only one person working the desk. We got a room on the 2nd floor facing the pool. This is nicer than a room facing the parking lot in my opinion. It was nice to see that the pool was being used by the younger set. The room itself was perfectly adequate. For whatever reason the wifi signal did not reach our room. You needed to go to the lobby area to pick it up. The bed was comfortable and we got a good nights sleep. The breakfast in the morning was a good one. They had scrambled eggs and plenty of bacon. The lady taking care of the buffet works very hard. As soon as things need to be refreshed they were. We walked to the nearby seafood restaurant for dinner. Check out did take on the long side however. They do need to improve it.

Room Tip: rooms facing the pool give you a better view, but there may be an issue of more noise if children ha...

I am really impressed by the room in this hotel. It is large, has nice furniture with lots of storage, a large closet, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, complimentary soap and shampoo, alarm clock, telephone, concierge notebook listing activities, restaurants in the area, private bathroom with tub, and a sitting area with a couch AND a table with 2 chairs. Flatscreen tv with cable channels, free wifi and plenty of lighting. There is free parking in their private lot right in front of your room and some of the lot is shaded. The bed is comfortable and the quilt on the bed is white.....you can see that it is clean. No questionable stains hiding in a flowered quilt! The ONLY negative I have is that the floors are carpeted and the room had a funky odor, as if the carpet got wet at some point. I should have brought my can of Lysol and that would have taken care of it. All told, I am pleased with this hotel and would definitely recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: My husband and I stayed in room 125.....first floor.

We had limited time here on the way to the Keys but enjoyed our stay. The courtyard pool area is lovely. Our room was large by any standards and very clean. The seafood restaurant around the corner was very good.
