No complaints. We were there for 5 nights and never were bored with breakfast. Food area was spacious and very clean. Location allowed us to travel up and down the Keys with plenty of time to enjoy Key West & Key Largo. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Posted Nov 4, 2016
Pros: Your Manager and your entire staff was 5 stars
Cons: Your breakfast left a little bit to desire
Location: We really enjoyed seeing all of the key deer. We spent two entire days just driving around and spotted over 35 of them.
The staff was one of the best ever. They all went out of their way to make sure our stay was everything we wanted it to be. Even the housekeeping staff was the most friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend this fine hotel and am looking forward to our next trip
