Good Location for going to the Keys, Biscayne NP and Everglades NP. The room was dated and in need of some repairs in the bathroom. Beds and pillows were comfortable and sink near mini fridge was convenient. The woman working the breakfast was very friendly. Overall stay was nothing fancy. Just average.

Hotel's Favourite
I have stayed at this specific hotel twice in the last 2 years. Both times the front staff were great as was all support staff. Breakfast is modified but still have plenty to offer including to go boxes with bagels, hard boiled eggs, and sausage. They also had oatmeal, waffles, yogurt and cereal. Pool area is nice and clean. The rates always seem reasonable. Rooms are clean and I like that you can smell the bleach on the bedding. It's tropical so you will see some insects, lizards and birds, but nothing in the rooms! Great halfway between Ft. Lauderdale and the Keys. Try M.E.A.T in Islamadora. It's in a strip mall but the food is bomb. We go it to go and ate at a local park.

The room itself was nice enough and I am NOT a complainer. I've been all around the world and also camp! We checked in and wanted to watch the NFL playoff games. There was a chirping smoke detector that we eventually had to disconnect ourselves. Our tv had a completely broken up signal/pixels were scrambled and tv kept skipping all evening. We asked to be moved but asked that the room given have a decent, watchable tv. Basic request for a hotel "Gateway to the KEys" !! The room we were given had a scrambled tv and skipped constantly. We were given a room next to the ice machine and the upper stairway. (NICE GOING) When we checked out the next morning we were told "you can go to Flanagan's down the street to watch the game" - UMMMM the game was on LAST NIGHT. We were offered a 10% discount and told that WE had to call Expedia to receive it. Best Westerns (not the best) are all privately owned. We put a call in to the OWNER with no response.

Liked - We traveled with a baby and got a big room with two beds, commode, dining table, TV, full height mirror, microwave, refrigerator & teapot. Good A/C. Because of corona there should be no room service, but we had one what is really important at this time. You can eat your breakfast outside in the pool area, which is also great. The breakfast itself was a bit richer than usually expected in such hotels, because of the waffles and cereal served. Free parking on site. You have some fast food restaurants around, so you can get some food if needed. Disliked · Before we checked in we received two messages that our credit card wasn't accepted, so we provided a second one which also wasn't accepted. We got a message that the reservation cannot be confirmed. We had some stress because of that. As we checked in it turned out to be a problem with hotel's card reader, our cards were everywhere accepted just hours before. Didn't like the typical American shower. The disposable plates on the breakfast were too brittle. Actually this is not a good place to stop if you visit Miami nor the Keys, too far away and it is annoying to drive these ways. The price was also too high, well like overall in Miami on new year's eve. No safe!

Pleasantly surprised at the range of breakfast items, lobby coffee, and housekeeping, when other properties are using the "COVID excuse" to reduce services without reducing prices. Not a particularly scenic location, but only 18 miles north of Key Largo and as much as 50% lower prices and better property condition than other chains in the Keys.
