In booking the HIlton at Key Largo, we were limited to 'quality' hotels in that area. The Key is small and limited of 'higher end' hotels and choice is scarce. In booking a Hilton, you wonder what could possibly go wrong?
I was super disappointed to drive up to the hotel to find that it was a converted 'motel like' building. Cleverly disguised with foliage and trees, it's still a motel! Check in took forever, the room smelled like it needed to be aired out and smelled of strong mildew. The beautiful photos of the beach area (again, cleverly disguised by the professional photos) was highly disappointing, and smaller than you think, covered in seaweed! The 'balcony view' was COMPLETELY COVERED with trees which allowed you no view.
My son, a military vet who served in the Coast Guard for 6yrs, was not 'allowed' to hire a jet ski because he was 26yrs old and not 27yrs old??? It's great, you can serve your county but you can't rent a jet ski at the Hilton; on the very water of which he was trained to serve on...RIDICULOUS!
The hotel/motel is in desperate need of upgrading and sports rusting bannisters and railings, peeling paint and thin walls.
Not a spot I would recommend, it will just leave a bad taste in your mouth!More
