“Quiet, private, great sunset, nice people & pets”
Reviewed 16 April 2009

We traveled here by boat from Ft. Lauderdale last year and are headed back this
weekend. Very nice place. Pet friendly and friendly people. Everyone has a
glass of wine watching the sunset. Very relaxing and charming.

This is no more than a over-glorified, although clean, dumpy motel room. Loud fan in the bathroom, lumpy mattress, a/c on when we arrived although it is 60 degrees out, came at 6:30 pm and still have not met the owner, coffee maker but too cheap to provide coffee, cute cabin but bare and crappy furnishings and sheets, a book of hotel details which did not offer restaurants in the area but a breakdown on the costs if your sheets have to be replaced, nice big water bug visiting at night, need I say more?Oh, from 7:30 am on we get to hear the highway, very peaceful and romantic.

Great little hidden Jewel, in Islamorada. After spending 5 days in exciting, but crowded and noisy Key West, the White Gate Court was the perfect place to relax and decompress. If you're looking for room service, and a fancy lobby, this isn't the place for you. But, if you're looking for the true Florida Keys experience, you need look no further.

The rooms were immaculate, and well serviced each day. The grounds were beautiful and perfectly maintained. The management is friendly and available to help with any requests. Great location, close to unique local markets, and restaurants.

With only 7 units available, spread out over three acres, it is large enough, and uncrowded enough, so that you feel like you own your own private piece of Florida heaven.

We can't wait to go back!

We found the White Gate Court after an online search for pet-friendly hotels. We spent 3 wonderful nights in October 2008. The grounds were clean and well-kept. The room was immaculate. The other guests were friendly but not intrusive, as was the owner Susan and her staff. We were able to keep our 5-year-old Boxer-Lab mix off leash the entire time. He loved roaming around, meeting the other dogs, and swimming & playing catch in the water. There was a clean gas BBQ in front of our unit with a patio set and tiki torches. Very peaceful to bring the coffee out there in the mornings and watch Buddy exploring. After reading some of the reviews here, I can only think that some folks cannot be pleased and will find anything to complain about. If you are looking for serenity with your family and pets, this place is great. We are definitely planning to return to the White Gate Court for our next getaway.

Truely a pet friendly location. The dogs ( we have two) were welcome and had a ball. Everyone there brought at least one dog. All the pet and people got along well. Quiet location far enough away from road for the dogs to run loose. We'll go back again. Very typical Keys cottage accommodations. Units must be 20 to 30 years old, but well maintained. The grounds are well tended. Our unit was clean enough and comfortable. The place is well located for fishing, snorkeling or diving.

  • Liked — Pet friendly.
  • Disliked — Mosquitos, hundreds of them.

I'm not sure where to start. Overall it is very, very expensive for the value received. The rooms are old and smell like cleaning products covering up smoke and other scents. The front desk staff was less than helpful and rude at some points. The strangest thing is that you are expected not only to tip the housekeepers but the landscapers and other property help as well. The description of the suites make them seem like they were totally remodeled in 1995 but more like just patched up. The sheets are only changed every 3 days. The air conditioners barely kept the room cool. Like the other reviewer said, you have to pay upfront for the entire stay and it is only refundable with 30 days notice, now I know why!!!

Folks, don't kid yourselves. Yes - this is no Ritz, but this not even a Motel 6. Motel 6 would have clean sheets and decent, non-hostile front desk service. It's been a couple of years since we visited and we still remember this place as our worst vacation nightmare...
