“Stay away!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I found myself unable to continue driving towards the Florida Keys and we decided to spend the night at this poor excuse for a hotel or motel. What a dump!!
I called from the parking lot prior to checking in just to see if there was air conditioning, wireless internet and some sort of breakfast. The only thing they had was beds, of course. Even the beds were extremely uncomfortable and when additional pillows were requested, the answer was: We got none!
I was given room 217 which had no functioning air conditioning. I was transferred to room 221, where the air conditioning also did not work. I finally ended up in room 237 where the air conditioning worked and was able to take two pillows from the two previous rooms, so I got my pillows. Breakfast consisted of nothing but bad coffee and an instant oatmeal package. There was no hot water or milk to eat the only thing available for breakfast?
I paid $77 for this? What a joke!!
No manager was available at any time.

Room Tip: You are better off staying in your car.

I stayed for two nights to visit the Everglades and later we went to the Florida Keys.
convenient location surrounded with supermarkets, drugstores and restaurant chains. Good for the price almost all staff is bilingual. Facil de comunicarse en castellano.

Our base is Miami but we decide to stay at this place one night because we have an early morning snorkeling trip in Key Largo, 45 minutes away. Do not let the front picture of the hotel deceive you. This is a typical motel setup. Room front door is on communal front balcony. The garbage bin are filled and ice machine is broken. None of this bother me because we only see all this in the morning as we get there at 10:00 PM and leave at 8:00 AM-- $65 for 1 night sounds right!!!

stayed one night - thank goodness!
We got room - in back of building. View was fence and trash. The room needed repairs - plaster showing on wall, bathroom door dirty, entrance door loose even when locked.
One good thing - checked for bedbugs - none. However, left light on all night - was concerned about "other" bugs.
2 small pillows for double bed. Internet was very slow. When we arrived in room, realized there were no towels, washcloths, hand towels, bath mat. Went back to office and housekeeper had to get linens from their laundry room.
Also had to park our car somewhere else because there was no parking in back of building.
Was not happy.
Only good thing was girl at the desk - Lorna/Lorraine (not sure which) - was very friendly.

Room Tip: IF staying there, make sure room faces parking lot

The hotel was full and we must have got a room being worked on. Though clean, there was only bath towels, no hand or wash or bath mats. The office did give me more. The room number was marked on the window and didn't match the number listed on the phone. After finally settling in late, we discovered that the cold water faucet did not work. So no showers unless you like being scalded. The edge of the box springs were black. Would not stay here again. Was very disappointed.

We stayed there from dec 28-jan 5 and it was a nice place just to sleep at night. We never had breakfast at the hotel so we cant comment on that. The parking was well lit and there was security always patrolling the lot.
Our room was basic but it was all we needed because we were only there to sleep. We didn't see any bugs at all while we were there. Our bed was ok to sleep in but there were only 2 little pillows for our king size bed.
The Internet was really slow or not even working while we were there. The house keeping kept taking the towels and leaving us with only 1 towel for 2 people. The toilet paper was never replaced after the second day there and when we called to complain, the person at the front desk was very rude and told my wife to go pick some up.
