Book It! This Holiday Inn is a Hidden Gem. I spend a lot of time in the Florida Keys and absolutely love this place. We booked a 1 night stay while in town for business, just needed a place to sleep. Was amazed at the property once we got checked in. Rooms are new clean and very comfortable. Parking lot...

My wife and I stayed here one night at a rate of 229, it is really only worth 189 tops in my opinion. The beds are keeping the score from being a 4. The property is nicely set up as there is a restaurant with outdoor eating and a rental place that does snorkeling and jet ski rentals on site...

This is not you ordinary Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast is good fresh and filling. The hotel is attached to a marine with access to the Atlantic for fishing. Sports fishing charters are docked there over night. A tiki themed restaurant with a bar is between the Hotel and the marine. So great location and activities. Great stay at the halfway...

We've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express. It's not high end but restful and fills the need. That's what I expected. We had traveled most of the day, visited with friends, just wanted a good nights sleep. The front desk had a very chatty young lady who just wanted to talk. When we finally got to our room at least...

Our family of 5 stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 2 nights. The Good: The room was clean and comfortable. Beds and sheets were nice. The pool area is pretty good. The restaurant right behind the hotel was excellent. Check-in was a breeze. The free breakfast was very good - lots of variety and fresh. The Bad: Our room...

Overall, this was a wonderful experience for us, again. We have stayed three times and would go back. The rooms are nice, the breakfast is decent, there is a lovely beach a short drive away and restaurants you can walk to. The only negative I would say is that by 4 p.m. there is no sun over the pool. Also,...

This was a good choice halfway in the keys. Nice, clean rooms. Right on a canal with a great restaurant behind it. Our rooms were huge and faced the canal. Would definitely recommend it for anyone. Heated pool added extras.

Don't think about checking in early at this hotel. The cleaning staff seem to congregate in the hallways and chit chat more than getting the rooms clean. Check in was fine and so was check out. If they tell you that they will put you on the third floor don't be alarmed when they put you on the first floor....

Typical HIE. Clean room, friendly professional service and good breakfast buffet. We were traveling with our Boxer, Pax, and the front desk clerk had housekeeping get a room ready sooner than it was scheduled. The room was close to a little used side door that opened onto a small area that was ideal for us to take him out without...
