Great home base to explore the Keys on a budget
Posted Mar 21, 2017
Booked this motel as a budget-friendly way to explore the Keys with my three daughters. We typically stay in private homes or slightly upscale hotels, so I prepared the kids for a "crappy room" that would allow us to spend more money on tours and activities in the Keys. The room COMPLETELY exceeded expectations. It was clean, updated, and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Pool was fine - the kids did miss having a hot tub, but that's not a big deal really. We were all very happy with the place as our home base. As for location - not a "pretty" area, but everything you need is there and it couldn't be closer to the Keys entrance. Turn right out of the parking lot and you are 1/4 mile from the "entrance" to the Keys. Key Largo was maybe 20-25 minutes, close enough for meals and playing, and the snorkeling there was unbelievable (and reasonably priced). Key West was about 2.5 hours. Staff was really great when we checked in and seemed very sincere in offering to do anything they could to address any concerns during our stay (though we had none). Complimentary breakfast was unremarkable but adequate. They had waffle stations, eggs, yogurt, a couple of cereals, toast, English muffins, bananas, oranges, juices, and coffee. Some sausage, bacon, maybe gravy would have been nice, but again - it's free. I've certainly seen less impressive breakfast offerings. For the price, we were all very pleased with our stay. If we do this sort of vacation again, I will book again without hesitation
