Dove Creek Lodge, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed only one night but the views, setting, facility were all so pleasant, we wish we had booked more nights there. Easy to paddle, SUP, a nice open-air cafe on the premises, rooms that were simple and pretty (not overdone).

I had a good stay. I was in Key Largo for the Bogart Film Festival. It was convenient, quiet and had an ocean view.

Nice place, but it seemed the Wi-Fi in general in Key Largo was lacking. It was in and out. Of course our cell phone reception was also bad in general in Key Largo. Nice room, but had to really push in the door for it to lock from the outside as it was slightly off. No real complaints other than that.

A great little quiet hide away. Great to hang out in the hammock and just go out on the free kayaks

Dove Creek is a beautiful little hotel off the main highway so it's very quiet! Sitting down by the water in the adirondack chairs taking in the ocean breeze was the perfect end of a stressful driving day! I had the king room, no balcony or patio. It was very clean and nice but it is small. There is a great pool and kayaks are available for your free use. Next door (not part of the hotel) is a fun restaurant, Snappers, which is very convenient for lunch and dinner by the water.

From start to finish, this hotel was all class. Friendly and informative staff. Quiet, clean, comfortable quality rooms. There was no swimming area, but the beach area was nice, the pool/hot tub were wonderful. Nice restaurante next door. Amenities included kayaks, water bike, continental breakfast, sitting area and more. Great for couples or familes with older kids. This will be a "must stay" every trip we take to Key Largo.

A very nice small hotel. It was very clean and cozy.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

We were very happy to stay at Dove Creek. Everything was perfect!

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!

Besides the usual stuff (comfort, cleanlinness etc.) this hotel had a lovely secluded pool and complimentary use of Kayaks out on the ocean where large numbers of beautiful birds were to be seen. There is a good seafood restaurant next door which has a live band most nights. First thought this would be a problem but it was very pleasant. Continental breakfast was exceptionally elegant.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel with a marina and two very good restaurants. Conventiently located on Key Largo, about 5 miles from Pennikamp Park and within a few miles of dive shops, restaurants, and general shopping centers. Recommended for water-sports enthusiasts.

Friendly Staff. Clean Rooms. Great location. Great restaurant and bar next door. What more can I say, Great hotel. We would definitely stay there again.

I had an upgrade. They game me a sea view two story apartment with two bedrooms, two bath, kitchen, living room and terrace. All full equipped, clean and nice. They had complimentary kayaks, pool table, breakfast, DVD movies, books and good attention.

Very nice hotel for a great price. The view is beautiful and the stay very relaxing and peaceful. Will be back soon!

Great Key Largo location, very peaceful. Dove Creek feels like you are at home with a view of the ocean. The screened porch makes for a nice evening on the balcony. There is no room service and the place caters to boaters, but the Snapper's restaraunt next door is a great place to eat lunch and dinners.
