“good choice for everglades city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2008

The Ivey House is a good choice to stay for a couple of days. The rooms are clean, the people who run it are nice and friendly and will give you all the information you need to make your stay a success. I liked the screened pool. No bugs there!
Breakfast was okay, nothing special.
When staying in the low season Everglades City does not have many places to go to for a meal. We went to the Seafood Depot and had a very nice meal. Be sure to try the coconut shrimps and crab cakes. the shrimps are to die for!!

My wife and I had a lovely stay at the Ivey house Florida city. We stopped there as part of a fly drive out of season. The staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was included (many of the places we stayed at, it wasn't), the pool was plesant, the whole place clean, tidy and comfortable and the price reasonable. We couldn't fault it . A couple of interesting places to eat were also close by.

  • Liked — Friendly atmosphere
  • Disliked — Out of season - no canoe trips available from the hotel

We have stayed in every hotel/motel in Everglades City and the Ivey House is absolutely the best. Very clean, comfortable beds, environmentally conscious, and helpful staff.

We only stayed here 1 night and wished it had been 2 then we could have taken a little more advantage of the facilities and area.

The rooms were large and clean with comfortable beds. The pool was perfect to relax in after a day of travelling.

The staff were helpful and recomended the Camelia Street Grill for dinner. Took their recomendation headed down and had a fantastic evening eating drinking and soaking up the atmosphere. The ribs that my husband had were very scrummy. I opted for grouper which was fab too.

Breakfast was plentiful although I had hoped for a cooked one, as we went 'off season' it'c continental.

Tempted to go back and take in one of their canoe tours, again not running 'off season' due to midges.

We spend 2 nice nights in this hotel.
When we went, the B and B part was closed, only remained open the Inn.
The room was nice and included a fridge.
Breakfast was also nice, including toasts fruits, yogurt as well as eggs, and hot/cold beverages.
The only thing we did not appreciate was the fountain inside the pool: this fountain made a big noise, even when the pool is closed, so prefer a room in the B&B when opened rather than the Inn.

We booked here over the Memorial Day weekend after reading great reviews at TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed! Our room was big and clean, with refrigerator, cable tv, and free WiFi. Despite all rooms facing the pool, we were not disturbed at all by noise. I've scanned the room # floorplan, so check out my photos.

We traveled with our 6 and 9 year old, and they loved the pool, which is screened and about 4 feet at the deepest. A wonderful respite for all of us after muggy buggy days exploring the surrounding parks.

Breakfast is included and was continental this time of year (winter is high season), but offered cereals, toasts, oatmeal, fresh fruit and a variety of items.

This seems to clearly be the best place to stay in town. Everglades City is adorable and small. Right next door is Speedy Johnson's Airboat rides. What a thrill! I'm a Florida native and thought this was better than a trip to Disney just for this experience. We saw Manatees and flew through the mangrove forests. Awesome!

The staff at the hotel was helpful and nice. The gift shop is nice, but check out the State Park ranger station for better prices on books.

Overall a great experience. It's Old Florida at it's truest!

We booked two nights at the Ivey House for our 30th anniversary. We had never been to Everglades city before. The Ivey House was fantastic. The room we had had 2 queen beds a small refrigerator and was extremely clean. As we had never been there before we weren't sure where to start but the employees of the Ivey House went above and beyond to find out our likes and steered us in the right direction. They answered all of our many questions and offered us many suggestions. They also serve a continental breakfast of bagels, bread for toasting, english muffins, coffee, juice, milk, tea, cold cereal, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs and different fruits. We really enjoyed our stay and will definately return and recommend it to all of our friends.
