I never regret coming back to Lookout Lodge each year. So far from what I hear 2014 has been the best season in years and you can tell. Everyone from the hoteliers to the restaurant staff to the fishing and diving guides are breathing a sigh of relief. I also noted a lot of improvements. Charter boats have been kept up, dive shops painted and even the road to the Keys has been repaved.
I checked in rather late, just as the manager was ready to close which is at 9. But Gregg took the time to welcome me back, ask how I was doing and if I needed anything before he went home. I was good, just needed a comfy bed. He checked me into 106 which has a great view of the marina, There were a few people here to fish and they had their boats docked. I missed the legendary sunset that night but sine I had most of the week that would happen when I do my tradition BBQ on the deck!
Gregg had already turned on the air so when I opened the room door I got a comforting cool breeze hit me. As I put my things away I could not help notice all of the improvements - new spreads, new curtains, new paint - wow they were really doing a nice job. The next day I asked Don, the owner what was up. He said he has been working on a room improvements punch list painting everything lighter, tropical colors, replacing the darker drapes and curtains with nicer and lighter patterns, putting flat screen TVs in all of the room and on the waterfront front, changing out all of the screens.
For me it seemed more than necessary as last year I was just fine with the rooms. They were clear and comfortable and who care if the 32" TV was a tube unit! But I admite I did enjoy the improvements, their personal attention and OMG the sunsets are to die for! Can't wait to return in the fall!
