Holiday Inn Key Largo
Ranked #10 of 20 Hotels in Key Largo
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The room we were forced to stay in faced the rear of the hotel looking at a big parking lot and a huge fence (crime?) on the second floor and no elevator. The room looked so sterile no decorations or anything that it was the most uninviting hotel I have ever stayed in. The pool area was not bad so if you make reservations request a pool side room. We walked around the marina next to the hotel and there is a local bar restaurant that is way better than the places the hotel suggests. We ate at the Fish house (hotel manager suggestion) and it was expensive and not good. The only reason we stayed here was price.

Room Tip: ask for room facing pool area

We stayed in Key Largo only one night before we headed for the Miami Airport after a longer visit at Key West. We found the HolidayInn quite charming and could easily have stayed another night. There are two delightful pools, a good restaurant with good service (average food). The rooms were spacious and bed was very comfortable. Housekeeping was very good. It is an easy drive to the Miami Airport, whereas a drive from Key West would have been challenging, even with an afternoon departure. It'd be a great hotel to bring a family.

We stayed here our first night in Florida. We had a great welcoming from the manager. He was so helpful in our search for a nice restaurant.
We wandered the grounds the next day and ran into the owner/captain of the African Queen.( It is in the waterway right by the Holiday Inn). What a delightful visit we had with him. He gave us a great history lesson on the boat and let me climb aboard. If you get the chance, walk down to the water and look at the boats.
We would definitely come back to this hotel.

Stayed 3 nights here for a weekend diving trip. Good hotel and location. Rooms were comfortable. We did not use the pool as it was chilly, but did enjoy the hot tub. I would book a trip back to this hotel for our diving trips.

This hotel is wonderful for families. Two pools and a hot tub. One pool has a very pretty waterfall. The tiki bar in the middle of the two pools is delightful. The bartender, Geoffrey, (originally from Jamaica) made our night fun and enjoyable. He was attentive and very funny. He had to make several trips inside to meet our requests and did so with a big smile. He made frozen virgin drinks for the kids that they are still talking about. He treated them with respect and got a well deserved big tip too. The man at the front desk moved our room to poolside without any hesitation when we first arrived. We did not eat in the restaurant so I cannot comment on that, however, the menu looked very good. There is a separate more casual menu for the tiki bar too. The room rate was a bit high considering the main amenity is the pool area (the hotel sits right on the highway and has no beach or other scenery but the grounds along the walkways are lush and tropical). Overall, I would go back for a night (would not stay here for a long visit but just passing through on the way to the Keys) just to talk to Geoffrey again. He is a gem and I work in the hospitality industry - people like him are hard to find. I would hire him in a heartbeat! Thanks Geoffrey!

In honisty I only ever stay i Key Largo on the way to and back from Key West so all I am looking for is a stop over. Staff are friendly and helpful. The area is good. The hotel is clean - if a little dated.

Room Tip: The cheaper rooms have the "Carpark View" which is fine if you just need to sleep.
