Cute little hideaway

We had a great experience at Dove Creek. It was our first time to Key Largo and drove from Miami. The hotel is small and very quaint; right on the water. We got there around 11am (check in wasn't until 3) so the hotel staff gave us a 10% coupon to eat at the restaurant Snappers right next to the hotel, and had our room ready by 1pm. This restaurant is great, we ate there 4 times during our stay! Great, fresh seafood, right on the water with live entertainment everyday. Prices are a little high, but worth it for the fresh seafood and friendly staff. Our room was clean and comfortable, not 5 star, but good enough for a weekend stay. Only complaint was that we could hear people on the floor above us. The pool is a nice size and plenty of chairs. (remember to bring your own beach towels because the hotel does not provide this) Nice hot tub; we liked that the pool/hot tub did not have certain hours, you could come and go whenever you wanted. The hotel has a complementary breakfast (which is over at 930). They had a nice spread of bagels, danishes, fresh fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and coffee. Overall it was a nice stay, I would definitely recommend this hotel!

A real find........

My wife and I had to leave a cruise ship in Key West for Medical reasons. We rented a car to head back to Fort Lauderdale. We decided to stay a couple of nights in Key Largo on the way. We found this lodge on a search site and what a find it was. The lodge had a comfortable King size bed in beautiful room. It is in a fantastic location right on the Ocean. It has a great pool and hot tub and hammocks and seats well placed in the shade to enjoy the water. The lodge offered a wide range of toys to play in the water at no cost and was next to a fantastic restaurant and bar. The bar served great run punch in a bucket. This all at a good price. The two night stay salvaged our vacation and we hope to come back with some of our children and grandchildren.

Lovely Quiet Spot

Friendly staff. Room small but very clean and grounds nicely landscaped. Pool was small but adequate. Hot tub not working during our stay. Nice assortment of water sport equipment for use. Wish it had a beach. Above average continental breakfast. No screen on patio door. Air conditioner fan was noisy. Bar and restaurant next door very convenient and offered discount to guests.

Great getaway

This hotel is a nice quiet getaway. The music played at the Turtle Club next door is not loud and is nice to sit outside and listen to. The breakfast was delicious and yes, the key lime tarts are wonderful! The staff was also very helpful in anything you asked of them. I would definitely go back.

We were told to go to Shipwrecks (a local hangout). The food was great (they had both seafood and burgers) and the prices were cheaper than most other places and you also got a lot of food.

Great place

When I reserved a room, I did just king size bed room. I had to upgrade to suit because my son decided to come with us. They upgraded us without a fee. Next door is a great sea food restaurant. Everything was so great.

Deer creek lodge fantastic

We were more than pleased with the lodge. Great food at morning breakfast. Above the average. Fresh fruits, cheeses and best of all the key lime pudding . Fantastic and relaxing views. Felt like an upscale bed & breakfast inn. Watched diving pelicans for hours, along with the cranes. Good central location and not far from activities. Nightly music and good food at Snappers next door. Probably one of the most enjoyable stays and relatively reasonable

Peaceful private waterside resort

Lovely little resort tucked away from the busy road with only 19 rooms, no noise, but lots of fun. The restaurant and bar are fantastic right on the little bay filled with "pet" tarpon. Everyone was really nice, very accommodating, and the continental breakfast was wonderful! Tiny little homemade parfaits, fruit skewers, and fresh whole grain bread..yum!

Great Place to Stay

This hotel had all the things that a big hotel has but with home town charm. The staff were very nice, the hotel was quiet and the grounds were well maintained. The complementary breakfast in the morning was all that was needed. Great place to base out of.
