Stayed here for 3 nights before heading to the keys. This was a great base to explore the Everglades. Clean, basically up to date rooms (new carpet I think). Good breakfast. Beds not too hard. Good location, with tons of shopping and restaurants minutes away. Good value for money. I'd stay here again.

We stayed here on the way back from a week in the Keys before flying out of Miami Airport. We were looking for an inexpensive place just to spend our last night after the high prices in the Keys. I chose this motel from the good reviews on trip advisor. The employees were friendly and helpful. It was redecorated with...

This hotel is not only the gateway to the keys, it is also the gateway to Everglades National Park -- it's about 10 miles from the park, and we used it to access the park. Check-in was quick and extremely friendly. Hotel staff gave us a a gift, a bag of popcorn and a bottle of water. We used both...

As the name of the hotel suggests, it's definitely the gateway to the Keys, with the drive to Key West taking around three hours. The motel was clean and well presented, with a good sized room and bathroom. The only adverse comment I would make is that the pillows were a bit on the small side and lumpy. The breakfast...

This hotel is an awesome place to stay before heading for the keys. Easy location to find. Excellent breakfast. Hot tub was prefect at the end of a day of sightseeing. Definitely a great place to stay for the value and compared to other hotels around it. Would definitely return!!!

Because of work my husband basically lived at the Best Western in Homestead frequently for the last 3 years. I visited often and would like to mention that each and every person we met, from the property management to the lovely men and women who made his stay feel like a home away from home, are the kindest hard working...

This is a basic hotel nothing spectacular but clean and well maintained. The staff were great. I had a problem with online booking and Felix upgraded me for free. He also responded promptly to a trip advisor question I posted prior to my trip. The front desk staff were all helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was good and abundant....
