Great central location to visit the Keys. Rooms was good quality an dcomfortable. Geoff who works on the front desk, presumably through the night is lovely. Lovely breakfast with cereals, breads, yoghurt, waffles, warm cinnamon rolls and several hot items. 24 hour tea and coffee. Great spot near Tiki Bar and Grille to watch sunrise.

Stayed six nights here. Booked before we left the UK and were pleased with our choice. We know exactly what to expect with Holiday Inn Express properties.

Lovely place, great service and location. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and was really good. The pool was awesome and the bar next to it was the best. They gave us an upgrade in our room and it was beautiful. Very satisfied with our visit.

Lovely hotel very clean and tidy. Nice pool and lounge area. Excellent tiki bar adjoining the hotel, which serves all tastes and located next to the boat jetty. Staff were welcoming and polite. Self service breakfast was ok. Boat and jet ski tours available outside of the hotel

The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful at check-in. She told us about the breakfast buffet, which way to the pool, and where to get pool towels.
