My husband and I wanted someplace reasonably priced to stay as a pit stop to Key West for our honeymoon, so we came across this place on the AAA website. This hotel is hidden away, feels like in the middle of nowhere and we did not know what to expect. As soon as we came in, Brianna greeted us with a smile. We got a complimentary upgrade for our room and were floored when she escorted us to our room and showed us exactly where to park. She was very friendly and informative. The room is incredible, very clean and spacious even had a netted porch where you could sit outside your room without being annoyed by bugs. We wish we stayed longer. This is indeed a hidden gem and we would definitely stay here again!

Tip: The elevator & room set up is a little confusing. Both 2nd & 3rd floor rooms are on floor 2 of the elevator and 4th floor is on floor 3. Keep that in mind if you have a top floor.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room, if available the views are incredible from here!

we found this delightful facility on line and loved it! The 1 bedroom suite was great, the breakfasts were wonderful and the staff very efficient and friendly. If someone wrote anything negative about this facility they must have been in the wrong spot!!!

On our week-long vacation to Miami/Key Largo/Key West, this was by far the best place we stayed at. The suite was clean, comfortable, and we enjoyed the attached screened porch. The bed was comfortable, the decor pleasant, and the continental breakfast was fresh and filling. The pool water temperature could have been warmer, but there was a hot tub that we used instead. The restaurant next door was convenient with good food. However, the live music could be disruptive if you are a light sleeper. We closed the bedroom door and were able to sleep soundly.

This hotel is a beautiful place and by far the best on our trip! A beautiful pool area and sand "beach" with hammocks, and soft chairs. (It's not a beach really since it's facing a small pier and not the seaside.)

Our kid had a great time in the sand, the pool and the garden, and we loved the relaxation. Not too many families around, quite calm and relaxed place.

For a beach one can drive to the island plantation and turn right at Dairy Queen. Nice beach with playground for children.

My husband and I stayed at the Dove Creek Lodge for two nights on the way to Key West. We found the property and staff charming and helpful. Compared to Key West, Key Largo and the Dove Creek was very relaxed and peaceful.
We enjoyed dinner at the On-site restaurant both nights and were very pleased with the experience. There was even live music one evening.
The room with a private screened in porch was clean and comfortable. We would stay here again as well as recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper levels have a nice view of the water and grounds.

Tip
- wake up early, around 7, and have the breakfast in the lobby balcony. You can enjoy the sunrise and watch the birds catching fish 
- breakfast: try the key lime pie parfait. It's delicious.

Pros
- peaceful location and convenient to drive around
- great breakfast 
- helpful and efficient staff
- beautiful decor
- very clean
- good value for money

This is a great property. It's completely different from the regular choice hotels.
I highly reccomend it.

Stayed here on the way to Key West. It was ok as there is a waterside restaurant next door which was nice to sit and eat. We were next to the lift and breakfast room which was noisy. There was also music playing late from the restaurant next door.

Room Tip: Stay away from reception, lift and breakfast room.
