“Greatest hotel us yet...”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

This hotel is everything that the website portrays it to be. The hotel property is very well maintained, and beautiful. The staff was very attentive and helpful whenever we needed anything. Hotel is kept very clean, it was a peaceful and very enjoyable stay. My partner and I definitely recommend this hotel and we would definitely stay again!

This is a long overdo update to my original review. After posting my review in January 2012, I was contacted by the manager of the Dove Creek Lodge. She asked for additional details of our stay at the lodge.

I explained what has happened upon our arrival. We talked for quite sometime. She explained that many properties in the Keys do not staff their "desk" all night. That is only found in the larger "chains".

She insisted that we accept a refund for half of our stay. I explained that was not my intent. More than gracious, she made good on her promise and money was credited to our account.

First time to the Keys, didn't know what to expect for hotels. Dove Creek turned out to be a nice, clean place to stay on the way down to Key West. Access to kayaks, a nice little pool, great view of the sunrise in the morning. A bit further south from the main cluster of hotels in Key Largo, which I considered a good thing. Nice breakfast in the morning with fruit, yoghurt, and various breads.

Great lodge with a nice complimentary breakfast. We liked the coziness of the resort and the amenities of a big resort.

We stayed three nights and found it very peaceful and quiet after the bustle of Miami. There is a good restaurant next door, free kayaks, nice little pool and a beautiful view over the marina. A very nice breakfast is provided also. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, here it is...

In May, 2012, we spent 9 nights at Dove Creek Lodge in Key Largo. We have stayed in numerous places from Key Largo to Key West. Dove Creek Lodge is by far our favorite place to stay in the Keys. Beautiful property, pleasant staff, great rooms with screened balconies offering a fantastic view. We love the convenience of having Snappers Restaurant next door (good food). The small size of Dove Creek Lodge keeps it quaint and quiet. Nice pool and HOT hot tub, not just pool water with some jets like some places. This may not the best place for a young family with kids, but it is a wonderful place for adults. Great floating docks, fish cleaning table, and fishing rod/equip lockers. Everything clean and well maintained. Staff all very friendly and accommodating, but of particular note, Bobby MUST be mentioned. Nothing but kudos to a young man who not only sells you ice, but offers to deliver the bags to your room or boat. When we experienced a pump failure on our boat docked there during a storm, Bobby came down immediately to help, in the rain, went back and retrieved his tools, and could not have been any more helpful during this repair or at any time during our stay. Talk about a trustworthy staff, we left a tip on the bed for housekeeping and came back to our room only to find the dollar bills neatly folded and placed on the counter. We have stayed at the Hilton and Holiday Inn in Key Largo and many places in between all the way to the Banyon and Hotel 53 in Key Largo. Dove Creek Lodge is our favorite. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: You're on you own. We want our favorite room available when we come back!

We stayed two nights from May 27-29th. We stayed the first night in a regular room- but was upgraded after we had trouble with our keys to our room. We left Key West just before Memorial day to get away from the crowds and this was our stop before heading to Fort Lauderdale. On May 29th we had the whole pool (small, but cozy) to ourselves, we didn't want to leave. The view was beautiful of the ocean and had access to complimentary kayaks the whole time. The hammocks in the shaded trees by the pool were beautiful after a dip in the pool- we never had a problem accessing them when we wanted them. There was a restaurant just 2 min away from the hotel called Snappers- yummy food and drinks. Only 5 miles away from John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. The breakfast had parfaits, key lime tarts, fruit skewers, breads, coffee, juices, pastries. It all tasted so fresh! We wanted to extend our trip here because it was just so comfortable. Great if your a fisherman, otherwise need to go somewhere else for beach activities.
