“Oasis Appears”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Traveling on motorcycles to Key West, had a day full of rain and severe weather. A couple of hours behind our intended schedule and this hotel appeared. We pulled under the canopy and sheepishly asked if a room was available. The staff was very friendly and got us settled in pretty quick. The room was clean and comfortable. In the morning one of the staff was putting towels on the bikes for us to dry off with. A nice touch. The breakfast was standard fare. I would stay here again.

This hotel was a perfect stay-over on the way to Key West. Well situated..it is literally the "Gateway" just a minute from #1 southbound. We were pleased with the pool and Jacuzzi situated in a wonderful and lush courtyard in the centre of the complex. Breakfast (and it was included) was above expectations with both hot and cold choices. Staff were very pleasant and check in was a breeze. the facility is clean and well maintained, and rooms spacious and comfortable. Room rates are reasonable - and you are only 25 minutes or so from Key Largo.
No hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We only stayed for one night but were very happy with our accomodations. Our room had a sofa, microwave, and fridge. We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. Breakfast area was clean and well stocked despite being quite busy. We would stay here again.

We drove back from the Florida Keys and spent one night here. I wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage of the lovely pool/area. The room was very nice and the staff helpful. Breakfast was included and was better than most free breakfasts, with a nice eating area. I would stay here again and would recommend it to my friends.
