"Very Nice 4 star hotel on private beach Key West"
We had a beautiful cottage on the private island. Cottage was swanky and beds were big and terrific. Grounds included a quiet and lovely beach and great pool as well. Which is very rare for Key West. The only other sand beach we saw was a big public beach that really required a rent a car to access. The hotel restaurant was nice but too pricey for my taste for Dinner Hour - most entrees were $30 +- Lunch was more reasonable
There was construction on the street (hopefully widening it for faster traffic flow), but it was not noticable from the very lovely pool and bar area where we spent some time relaxing and soaking up the sun. Also loved the late afternoon beer and hotdog specials.
The Holiday Inn Key Largo is hands down the best value in Key Largo. You will not find another hotel in the area with better pools, location, comfort, value and friendlier staff. Every single staff member from the grounds staff to front desk were polite, friendly and very accommodating to each and every request. We were met with a smile and a friendly "hello" every time we met one of them. Yes it could use some cosmetic updating in the rooms but the cleanliness and comfort made those needed improvements insignificant. On the Marina, the hotel is within walking distance of many dive, fishing and sightseeing boats. Some restaurants were all within walking or very short driving distance as well as convenience stores and other retails shops and stores. Bottom Line - If you are looking for a good value with a resort feel the Holiday Inn Key Largo is it. . . If you are particular about luxury accommodations and amenities you should spend double or triple the money and stay at one of the local resorts.
We loved this hotel. Perfect pool/ beach area. We canceled another hotel we had booked for this Vacation just so we could stay here again. Loved, loved, loved the place. We will be back. They also upgraded our room and allowed us to check in early. Great staff and friendly wait service. Check out Breezers happy hour half price.
