After traveling to the BIG CITY of Miami (Cutler Ridge area/ Pembrook Pines) and finding ABSOLUTELY nothing to stay in and if there was availability I'm not even sure we would have felt safe staying there, we hopped on the Turnpike for a short 10 minute drive to this Econo Lodge. I do have to stay, I have never stayed in an Econo Lodge before and was VERY leary.... I had called ahead of time just to make sure that there was availability and that the rooms were accessible from the inside only and not the outside- just a safety issue at the time- I was traveling alone with my sick mother and needed some handicap accessible room options and wanted a few safety things checked out. I spoke with a wonderful lady by the name of Shirley I believe. She assured me that this Econo Lodge was not going to let me down and was not "Econo" when it came to SAFETY! When we arrived I was so surprised by the facility. It looked brand new, VERY well lit and all rooms accessible by the inside only. I went in to check in before I started to unload my disabled mother and Shirley wouldn't let me check in before she let me look at two rooms and made sure that they were to my liking and would be ok for my mom. I thought that was above and beyond and Shirley was extra special and made sure that my mother was in the handicapped equipped room IF that's what she felt comfortable with.
The hotel was VERY clean!!! The rooms are very large and bathrooms in the rooms are as well.
When I said nice hide out in a hectic town, what I meant by that is.... When we have have been back we don't bother looking for hotels in that CRAZY busy town of MIAMI! We just call Shirley, she is usually working the day shift and we make a reservation at the Econo Lodge in Florida City. It may seem a bit away from Miami, but it really is NOT and it is worth jumping back on the turnpike and driving down to exit 2 I believe to stay in PEACE and QUIET! :)
