“Hotel from hell”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

When I arrived at the Floridian for my 2011 Christmas holiday, I was given a room that had no towels, no soap, etc. It wasn't even ready for guests. There was continuous smoking in the non-smoking rooms which seeped into my room continuously and made sleeping impossible (allergies). The internet was not working at least 60% of my weekly stay and when it was up it was way too slow to even use it. On the last two days of my stay there was no TV. The continental breakfast is half of what it was 5-10 years ago. Very limited food selection. The most frustrating thing was when you called to complain about the atmosphere there, the internet problems, etc., the front desk would either ignore their phone or never call you back when they said they would.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, no rooms are safe.

We stayed for five nights between Christmas and New Years 2011. On the first arrival we found the non-smoking room smokey and the smoke alarm chirping, which I had to remove the alarm after contacting the front desk. The room was clean, but the king size bed only had 3 little pillows. The bathroom only had two towels each day and had to get shampoo packets on one day. The bathtub leaked so the floor was all wet after a 10 min shower, I mean a 1/4 inch of water across the whole floor. The breakfast was sparse of food at 8 am during the 7-10am hours of operation. It would have been nice to enjoy the breakfast more but we needed to leave before 7 am.on three days. I would not recommend this hotel.

This hotel was close to where I wanted to go however was in pretty bad shape. Some of the door locks were missing, there were bugs on the floor and craweling our of the sink. The staff was not friendly.

Offers good value for little money, but makes you feel rather poor. The pool though, was open and nice. Furniture was a bit old but allright. A lot of noise from the AC. Breakfast: everything made of plastic, except for some of the food. Good starting point for a trip into the Everglades. Just okay to stay one night.

We're not the kind of people who are complaining for details! But during that night of september 2011, we lived a real nightmare...

In fact everything was looking find at our arrival, but the reality was something different. My girlfriend found , in the garbage, a used condom. So she went back to the front desk to ask for another room, and got it.

In that second room, everything was looking again. Unfortunatly, i found flying bugs in the bed and i decided to remove it to have a look under it. And SURPRISE! An huge ant's nest with thousand and thousand ants running around.

So don't go there, it's a real mess...

The Floridian meet our requirements: clean, comfortable and cheap! It was a great value at about $65/night. If you are visiting Monkey Jungle, any of the Gator parks, or going snorkeling in Key Largo, staying in Homestead makes a great "base camp". The room took a while to cool down, so if you have reservations (we did not) ask if they can turn on the AC about an hour before you arrive. TV, mini-fridge and microwave were provided. Continental breakfast was pretty pathetic though, but there's an Ihop just up the street.
