“Great spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Wonderful hotel! Great service, good breakfast. Spacious rooms with beautiful views. Balconies are screened in but not secluded and are in the front of the room. Great restaurant/bar steps away with live music, good food, and a large open patio. Boat rentals available from separate company, convenient but do not expect significant instruction from the owners. We loved Dove Creek and look forward to going back!

This small hotel is off US1, on the ocean side. We got upgraded to a suite with a screened-in porch (the screen wasn't necessary, it was kind of cool when we were there). I don't understand some of the complaints about this place. I didn't have any trouble with either the service or the wireless internet and the gravel parking lot wasn't what I'd call a deal-breaker.

Th restaurant next door, Snappers, has good food and an excellent happy hour. Dove Creek gave us 10% off coupons which we forgot to use.

We stayed here for a night on our trip to Key West and my only regret is we did not stay longer. It is a beautiful spot with many extras like free kayaking and a great free breakfast. The room was beautiful and immaculate and the staff helpful.
There is a great restaurant next door so the spot is very convenient. a lovely spot if you are on Key Largo!

We stayed at Dove Creek Lodge for two nights on our way back from Key West to Orlando (Feb. 2012.) Wow, we wanted to stay longer! Debbie showed us to our suite, asking if we needed anything extra (coffee pot, etc.) The bed was very comfortable and our room was huge. We enjoyed the wonderful, relaxing atmosphere here---hammocks, tiki torches, palm trees---all overlooking a small marina and restaurant. (You can book fishing/boating activities right here if you want.) The property is located only a few miles from John Pennekamp State Park which offers a lot to do. The morning coffee and breakfast selection was absolutely excellent. My husband took the free kayak out in the morning.

Room Tip: The suites are incredibly spacious.

Stayed two nights at the Dove Creek Lodge and found it to be a wonderful experience. Clean, large rooms with nice views. Friendly staff. Great continental breakfasts with lots of fresh fruits, cereals, bagels and more. As added bonus is its location next to Snapper's Waterfront Restaurant - a great place for lunch and dinner.

We stumbled upon this place after looking at all the chain hotels who were asking a fortune. It's on the water, back off the main road, so you may miss it if not paying attention. Beautiful rooms. We could not figure out the remote control thermostat though and it kept switching from air conditioning to heat to maintain a certain temperature. We added another night to our stay and our key cards weren't reprogrammed so we were locked out of our room when returning approx. 8pm. The office was closed, but we called the emergency number and they responded quickly and got us into our room. Lovely grounds but no real fishing spot for my husband. Restaurant next door with music on Saturday night played until 11 pm.

A wonderful stay and wonderful people. The service and caring was top notch. We were upgraded to a suite with a great view. The breakfast was well stocked with everything from fresh fruit to key lime tarts. We listened to live music at Snapper's next door under the stars and tiki lamps by the pool. A nice tidy package overall.
