“Wonderful surprise!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Got this room for a night on hotwire while traveling thru the keys...wow!! What a surprise!! Wonderful suite (2 TV's)...great complimentary breakfast, and very nice restaurant next door with a discount coupon from Dove Creek!! Only thing that could be better is if we had stayed LONGER!!! Will come back to this place!!

Relaxing grounds, great suite perfect for our group of 6, loved the kayaks and paddle boards on the grounds! The breakfast was better than most continental breakfasts at other hotels and it was nice to have a restaurant to walk to in the evening.

Stayed for 3 nights & it's gorgeous. Beautiful view's, nicely manicured grounds, very tranquil & relaxing. The breakfast is perfect & beyond my expectations. All the staff are friendly & helpful. We had dinner at the restaurant next door, Snapper's & it was great!
I would highly recommend it for a relaxing vacation

My husband and I had the best stay at Dove Creek. Staff was excellent and helpful with any questions we had. We both loved it! The room/suite was spacious, clean and beautiful. The continental breakfast went above and beyond. The grounds are quaint where you could sit by yourself or join people by the pool and/or hot tub. We are already thinking about when we are going back to stay. They did a fantastic job and it was one of the best places we've stayed. Hope to see you soon Debbie!! Sincerely Jeff & Lisa Snyder

We just got home from our Florida vacation and MUST say that we just loved this place. The serenity is prIceless, the rooms are GORGEOUS and VERY modern and updated. The saltwater pool area is kept very clean and has awesome "beachy" music playing at all times. Delicious continental breakfast, (wonderful yogurt/key lime) parfaits homemade each morning, and the staff was very helpful and pleasant..but why wouldn't they be when they live in such a beautiful place and environment? Sunrises to die for every morning from the balcony are enough to stay here, and the restaurant next door and the white sand beach area are fantastic additions. We absolutely suggest that anyone wanting some R & R or some couples re-connection time stay here...It gets our highest rating!

Room Tip: Most rooms have a beautiful view...

We stayed here en-route to Key West whilst travelling through the Keys in August.

To be honest, the local restaurant was the main reason for staying here but we were more than happy to stay at this hotel as the other reviews were all good.

The room (with separate living room) was very big and extremely comfortable, if a little dated, but that didn't bother us at all.

The restaurant/bar next door (Snappers) had a good varied menu and the live band playing finished the evening off well.

Breakfast in the morning was buffet style but I will say it was one of the best I've ever had and as good as any I've had in a country bed and breakfast in England!

Room Tip: They all looked good to me. I would probably say just try not to be too close to the lifts although...

We stayed one night at Dove Creek and liked our room and the hotel very much. Room was attractive, good sized, very clean, nice big TV, windows opened out to let the ocean breeze help cool the room down. Bed was memory foam and super comfortable. Conveniently located next to Snapper's Restaurant. Loved the ocean view, nice pool, hammocks and comfy chairs to relax outside. The breakfast was perfect, beautifully presented granolas, hot cereal, cinnamon rolls, fruit, excellent coffee, yogurt, skewers of fresh fruit, also salami & mozzarella & olive skewers (different!) Best of all were the little key lime pies served in little glasses and glasses of yogurt, fruit, granola, very tasty and pretty. Staff was very friendly. We chose Dove Creek after reading reviews and glad we did. Would stay here again for sure on our way driving down the Keys.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the ocean are the best.

Thank you for the review on our property. We did just recently put in new Memory Foam mattresses in all rooms and suites, and the feedback from our guests is wonderful.

Our breakfast is not the typical continental served in most hotels. Each morning we make our parfait's, fruit skewers, antipasti salad and key lime tarts. We change out our items seasonally, to use only the freshiest items available. Stop in this month and have pumpkin cheesecake and spice cake bites with dried cranberries and cream cheese.

Hope to see you again soon.
