My wife and I had a great weekend! First time down south in the city. Hope to retire down there someday. Fishing there is great and just a short hop and skip to the keys. Camellia Street Grill is the place to go for dinner!

Very warm welcome on arrival. Great advise on where to go. Amazing location. Look out for the dolphin around 0845 around the mangrove trees. Don't forget the missile spray you will need it. On our trip the score was Mosquitos 2 Humans 0!

This is just the kind of place I was looking for, on our short trip to the Everglades! Certainly not the Ritz Carlton, or even a Comfort Inn (where we frequently stay), but a rustic, spacious, peaceful place! Loved the screened porch overlooking the river! It was even screened underneath the floor, to keep mosquitos from coming in between the...

This place has some very good qualities like space, an enclosed porch with a great view of the river and an area to sit and lounge down below by the river. However, I am in my late 60's and I was hoping for nicer surroundings to sleep in. I can't say it was dirty but just gave the feel that...

I'm sorry you were not satisfied with the bedding. We really try to make sure everything is clean and neat. I know we need some updating and are trying to get it done as quickly as possible. But you must realize this is the Everglades and not the city. Thanks for the input. Hope you have a great day. Oh...

My family came down to Florida to visit my mother-in-law, who has Alzheimer's disease. The plan was to take a couple of days' break in the midst of that to visit the Everglades. When we got to Florida though, we realized my mother-in-law was much worse than we'd knew. Her Alzheimer's had greatly advanced, and she'd also fallen out of...

You get so much for your bank here. You're so so close to the Everglades. Near many cool restaurants and I definitely can't complain about the free canoe rentals! There are only two, and first come first serve but we got one just fine and the other one didn't seem to get used the day we were there. The lady...

We stayed here for one night during our Everglades trip. Everglades City is a small Coastal Community. I believe there are around 700 locals that live there year round. We would be arriving after the office closed and it was easy to make arrangements with them to set up entry to our unit. Our unit, # 13 had ample space....

We stayed in Everglades City as a good half-way point between Miami and Sanibel Island, which permitted us to both visit the Everglades and the Island. The units are spacious and well-equipped--with kitchen, dining area, and sitting room in addition to bathroom/shower. The rooms also overlook a tranquil water setting via a screened porch and are right across the street...

Stayed in room 7. Location was great, the balcony had a fantastic view of the water and we enjoyed our stay. The pool was not on the hotel but behind a restaurant, a couple of minutes walk away. The place was aged, worn and not very clean.
