“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

very nice motel at a great price. perfect location for the Keys and the Everglades, beautiful facility, very friendly staff, nice room,, and a great price. Breakfast was a little weak (not much food available by 9:00 AM, but still OK. But overall the place was beautiful and very inexpensive. We arrived VERY late and were still treated very personably with open arms by the staff. Highly recommend

This gateway to the Keys hotel was convenient and good for my two night business stopover Got a lot of work done. The AC was a little noisy but the room was very nice with a little area to prepare food. On departure I thought I left something in the room and the staff were very helpful in searching for it.

A great place to stop prior to a fantastic early morning motorcycle ride down the Keys! The room was very clean, furnishings were in good condition. Coffee, tea and cookies are available in the lobby. Breakfast was very good and included a wide variety of food items.

A great place to stay, for families or anyone else. It is a 2 story, older style motel with outside walkways .You can actually park your vehicle right at your door. The entire facility has been renovated and looks almost new again. The rooms are nicely furnished with what appears to be new furniture and new carpeting. Everything has been updated, and repaired or painted. The continental breakfast was very good ,with cereals, Danish , juices, coffee ,toast and eggs to name a few things. Everything was fresh. We would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again next time we are traveling to the Homestead/Florida City area.

I am really glad you enjoyed your stay here at the Best Western in Florida City. We constantly update our property and amenities so the guests can enjoy their stay while on vacation. The theme and look of the hotel is Key West and is the only hotel in the area with this unique style. I see that you enjoyed our hot breakfast and hope you spent time in the largest pool area in town and relaxed in our hot tub as well. For any future reservations please call directly at 305-246-5100. I really recommend booking directly with us for no hassle cancellations/modifications and the best rates.

Near to Miami Int'l Airport, Everglades NP and to the Keys, we stay here since 1995. The rooms are clean, the coffee is even for europeans excellent and the pool and garden area really nice. Friendly and helpful staff.

I'm really glad you enjoyed the coffee. Good coffee is a must for many of our guests and we strive hard to provide that. As for the pool area, it is the best in town and we work hard to maintain it. We here at the Best Western really appreciate your writing this review. We take pride in comments about the staff and are proud that you enjoyed your stay. If you are ever back to visit, I hope you choose to stay with us again. For any future reservations please call directly at 305-246-5100.

Nice location close to Everglades, clean room and common areas, and pleasant staff. I had two complaints. Room had very slow WiFi and musty, industrial cleanser smell. I suggest hotel remove carpet and install tile floor.
