“A great place!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Trip Advisor came through again! We were searching for a nice place to stay on our 2 and a half days in the upper Keys. We were looking for an affordable but NICE place and Dove Creek Lodge hit the nail on the head! Peaceful and serene...one block off of Rte 1 and you'd think you were miles from the traffic.
The rooms was great...though next time I'd opt for the one with the screened porch...I was jealous of those who had them!
The grounds and the pool were lovely, we kayaked around the coves and swam.
The breakfast were perfect, yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit kabobs, bagels, pastry and some
eggs and cheeses for some heartier fare...enough to get you going!
We will definitely recommend to anyone travelling to the Keys.

Great location and perfect place to stay to explore the area. Weather was unseasonably cool, but we still had a great time. Everyone at the Lodge was extremely helpful...we can't say enough good about this place! Had a great, relaxing time.

My family and I visited dove creek lodge and loved the resort. Our suite was a great setup and it was nicely done. We loved the restaurant on site with bands on some nights that we could just sit outside and listen to.
The breakfast was great. Really fresh and different.
Our location in Key Largo was good and we went to many different restaurants.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a nice view of the water and of the resort.

My husband and I just spent two nights here and we both feel we found a winner. It's small, quiet, comfortable, and has a beautiful view. Our queen room with balcony offered us a perfect place to unwind. Helpful staff steered us to two good nearby restaurants. If you're looking for a friendly non-chain experience, please consider this charming waterfront inn.

My husband and I stayed here over Christmas after I had read positive reviews online and decided to book. So glad that I did. The rooms are lovely, separate bedroom and living area, done up in the "key west" style. Large bathroom, mini refrigerator and screened in sitting area outside. They have a very nice heated pool and a jacuzzi. Although the hotel seemed full, we had the jacuzzi to ourselves at night and sat out there each night with a water bottle (of rum and ginger beer ;-)) and listened to the music from the restaurant next door. They have a cute little "beach" area with hammocks and free kayaks. Each morning, they have a continental breakfast, included with your room cost, that was also very good. Although not a big fan of Key Largo in general, it seems very run down, we loved this place and are likely to come back.

If you have every been to Key Largo, then would know that it is one highway, with some motels, and basic restaurants. This is not a majestic place, but an area to do some diving. not for fine dining or accommodations. When I found the Dove Creek lodge I felt like I found a little piece of paradise, a diamond in the rough. Their landscaping was beautiful, a boutique style hotel situated off the main highway, along the ocean. Our room had an ocean view, the decor was cheery, using the warm tones of light yellow, peach, and greens. The pool came alive at night, when it was lit up by torches. They had a dock with kayacks, so my husband and I went kayacking into the calm ocean water. You will also find hammocks to lounge in, while basking in the sun. Their breakfast was included with their nightly rate. It was good, and they were very on time, which was extremely appreciated since we had leave by 7:45 am for the snorkeling tour. The breakfast room was nice, slide the glass doors open, to sit out on the large porch, with tables, to view the sunrise, over the ocean while eating your breakfast. The only thing I would change, which I mentioned to the front desk is, to have the pool towels located at the pool, not at the front desk. This is not convenient for hotel guests ,since they have to walk all the way across the hotel complex,up the stairs, to the front desk, for a pool towel, while in a bathing suit! I would have brought my own towel ,however, their sign clearly states, no person towels at pool side. All other hotels, of this caliber, have the pool towels located, at their pool side, where they clearly belong.

Room Tip: Top floor closet to the ocean view

We landed in Fort Lauderdale and were planning on driving down to Key West planning a stay at Key Largo, Islamarada and Key West. We arrived at Dove Creek and were a bit apprehensive when we turned the corner but then we arrived and we were pleasantly surprised. We pulled into the great parking area under the hotel (shady/roomy) and made our way to the front desk. The lady there was very pleasant and bought us to our room which was on the third level. The room was beautiful, clean and had a great view. We bought in our suitcases and went down to inspect the grounds. The sitting area with hammocks and chairs was great, there was even shade (for me NOT a sun worshipper) where we enjoyed a beautiful ocean breeze and sunset. Not a ton of people, quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We then went next door and had a great dinner. All in all a great experience. We stayed at a couple more places and even a more upscale place in Key West but none compared to Dove Creek. We even stopped to have lunch on the way back and walk back over for a few minutes. We are already planning our next trip there for a few days (forget the rest of the keys!). It was one of the best hotel/resort experiences I have ever had. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet, relaxing and clean place there is no better.
