While this property is not new, in fact it could use some maintenance and updating, it’s kept clean and appears to be well run. All the staff I encountered were pleasant and accommodating. The rooms were cleaned well each day. The breakfast, while not gourmet, filled the tank for the days adventures on the water. The rooms were very humid, nothing dries in a day, which would be helpful. I could see daylight through a crack in the door, so Air was constantly escaping from the room - one clue to the humidity problem. The rooms were either cold or hot and a bit smelly, so keep the air running. The bathrooms are clean, and there was always hot water - I would have preferred a bit more water pressure, but it was okay. The property is near lots of shopping and good places to eat. Divers will appreciate it being right next door to Divers Direct if you need anything you may have left at home. Have fun in the Keys! Read less

Holiday Inn was a breeze to find as we drove into Key Largo from SWFL. We stayed at this hotel for a full week. Check in(early) was simple and quick. You grab your pool towels at the desk-very convenient! Our room was on the 2nd floor-overlooking the large pool area. There are actually 2 pools and a whirlpool. The tiki hut was very handy for drinks & lunch orders. Susan took good care of us as she expertly juggled all the guests enjoying themselves at the bar area. And the food is quite reasonable. A couple mornings we saw some folks taking scuba lessons in one of the pools. There's also live music poolside. Our room featured 2 queen beds, a mini-fridge, tub/shower combo. The ice machine was super close down the hallway and always worked great. Housekeeping staff were efficient and very kind. We also met one of the maintenance crew-John-that was finishing up some work on our air conditioner when we arrived. He was very friendly and the air worked perfectly our entire stay. The hotel offers a breakfast buffet ($13) or you can order off the menu. But there are soooo many local restaurants like Doc's. Evelyn's and Harriettes-give them a shot to start your day. There's ample free parking around the hotels perimeter, so no worries there if you wander in late. Tiny fitness room off the dining area but you won't have much of a chance snagging one of only 2 treadmills. Starbuck's is like a block away from hotel but take note-their pricing is much more than your local 'bucks. There are multiple half day fishing trip boats next door to the hotel the guys should check out. Just keep in mind one significant factor-weather conditions can change rather quickly in this area. If there's any chance you or someone in your party gets seasick, think twice about boarding those boats. Out in the Gulf is too late baby, baby, it's too late! If you stay at Holiday Inn, you'll have a lovely vaca! Read less

My family and I stayed here for two nights while we did some diving in the area. This is a perfect place for divers. The boat from Sea Dwellers across the street picks you up at the hotel dock.

This place has two pools and a hot tub. In between the pools, they have a tiki hut for drinks and ordering food. Drinks are good and the food is decent. If you don’t want to eat at the hotel, there are several places to walk to for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The place was clean and the staff was friendly. I am an IHG member and I would say this isn’t their nicest hotel, but it is very convenient. Read less

We did like the Hotel. Two pools and a nice jacuzzi. No free breakfast, $13 per person to eat there. We didn't. The Hotel next door is also from the same owner Company' other pool can be visited. Rooms were nice and the tiki bar had drink specials at a reasonable price.
