“Just OK...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2013

Got there late, front desk guy was adiment that he did not welcome smokers.....4 of us were on motorcycles, 2 of us were in a convertible Mustang.......he did not even know at the time that any of us smoked & recommended that we go on up the road to another location.... tired from the ride, in need of a shower, a bite to eat & a clean place to stay.... The rates were reasonable, the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean....HOWEVER, he made me feel a little second class. I do not smoke inside, I do not invade others space, there was a constant breeze, I realize he has a non smoking property, but seemed to believe that we would violate his policy, even told us we could not smoke on the sidewalk...! The location was not spectacular, no view at all....the continental breakfast was not impressive...the best thing about this place is that it is located across the busy roadway from the Category 3 Bar & Grill, which he did not favor, but we found to be very welcoming, kind staff, cold beer, smoking allowed & delicious food! If I owned a motel, I might be a little less forgiving, perhaps charge more for smoking inside, but at least let my good paying customers smoke on the sidewalk that I do not own. We drove through huge water/mud holes to park.......nastied up our rides....Wish we'd gone on down the road....!

Room Tip: If you're just passing through & want to see the water, don't stop here....especially if...

We appreciate all comments and hope all our guests enjoy a pleasant stay at our hotel. We must
clarify for the record: These guest arrived without a reservation and therefore were unaware of our
strict no smoking policy. We choose to be a smoke free facility completely and explain in detail
what our policy is to all walk in guests , not to be rude but rather to ensure our guests enjoy their
stay. If a prospective guest is a smoker we know most likely they will not like our strict policy so we are happy to recommend alternative lodging facilities that won't restrict their smoking habits.

We do this as a courtesy,and again we learn that no good deed goes unpunished.

In the Florida Keys, you get what you pay for. The room was large and clean with good water pressure and ample hot water. The A/C worked well, and the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The free Wi-Fi was adequate, as was the bar.

A few cautions: set your DVR before your stay b/c you will miss your favourite shows as the TV is ancient and the cable barely present. And bring your own hair dryer.

Even though it is one of the cheapest in the area and expectations should be low, it still ended up being a disappointing stay. After you spend some time there, it is clear that not much effort is put into maintaining the rooms. Beds have a very cheap feel to them... unless you love a very hard mattress. TV is quite old and the list of channels next to the tv did not match (why would that list remain in the room?). Internet is available and slow. Front desk person was annoyed when I asked for the password. He was certain it is on one of the papers left in the room (it wasn't). Breakfast was simple, but enough to get you going for the day. Parking is available and easy. The area isn't that great to look at. You don't feel like you are near water, which is ok, but not at all what we were expecting. Next time I need to stay in Key Largo, I will spend an extra $100 per night to stay at a nice hotel located on the water.

We offer an economical alternative to budget minded travelers. Our facilities are clean, safe and fully functional. We tend to be priced at least $100. less than the other hotels in the area which
means usually they are twice our prices. If you are looking for a full service luxury resort, we are not that and don't claim to be, but we are the only complete smoke free facility at any price in our area.

This hotel is good value, comfortable and clean (non-smoking too!). My husband and I stayed here for one night; and we do not understand why people gave poor reviews. We found the room spacious enough; the beds comfortable/clean (no bugs at all) and the bathroom sparkling clean. Rooms are cleaned everyday by a few kind ladies.

The paint in the rooms might seem old, but we realised it was really part of the design; the rooms look like they have been refurbished recently. Wifi was fast. Breakfast was simple but filling, and was promptly replenished (muffins, fruit, tea/coffee, juices). It was close to a good restaurant too - the Pilot House serves wonderful seafood. Overall a really pleasant stay! Would recommend to travellers.

This is not a resort hotel, very basic but decent for the price.
The room felt clean, staff were nice, and all amenities worked as expected. I'm sensitive for smells and really appreciated their strict policy on non-smoking. Many hotels boast non-smoking but you get the smell from smoking section anyway... but not this place, at least during my stay.
Breakfast is basic and good for this range of hotel. Muffins, bananas, orange juice, vegetable juice, and coffee.
I thought it was going to be a perfect stay, until a person next door started leaving the TV on all night. The wall was so thin that I could hear everything from there, and I couldn't sleep very well with the noise. I guess it's up to the guests if they want to watch TV all night... but the hotel should be prepared for that.
Also, I think the bed didn't help my sleep either -- maybe too firm? bedding too thin? I'm not sure, but it was not comfortable at all.

Old and worn out but neat and clean, clean sheets, clean towels and no bugs. Breakfast items include muffins, fruit, juice and coffee. No smoking, no pets. Friendly staff. If all you need is a place to stay, this is the place. A great jumping off point to the Keys. A great buy.

This motel is clean and well appointed and a good convenient stop on the way to key west. It is good value and has a welcome non smoking policy. It has a much more individual character than a chain motel and the management were very helpful on where to eat in town. enjoyed it.
