Just what we were looking for, nothin' fancy, just comfortable rooms and nice people near the stuff we wanted to do. They were right on the canal, and you could book snorkling trips, rent jet skis, etc, right from the stands just outside the hotel. We were expecting a regular hotel room, but it was an apartment suite with a balcony looking over the canal.
I was very surprised in the living space of the suite with kitchen. The walls seemed a bit thin since I could hear others cell phones in the early morning. However, overall stay was just fine. they are also pet friendly which is a plus for me.
The Holiday Inn Key Largo is hands down the best value in Key Largo. You will not find another hotel in the area with better pools, location, comfort, value and friendlier staff. Every single staff member from the grounds staff to front desk were polite, friendly and very accommodating to each and every request. We were met with a smile and a friendly "hello" every time we met one of them. Yes it could use some cosmetic updating in the rooms but the cleanliness and comfort made those needed improvements insignificant. On the Marina, the hotel is within walking distance of many dive, fishing and sightseeing boats. Some restaurants were all within walking or very short driving distance as well as convenience stores and other retails shops and stores. Bottom Line - If you are looking for a good value with a resort feel the Holiday Inn Key Largo is it. . . If you are particular about luxury accommodations and amenities you should spend double or triple the money and stay at one of the local resorts.
If you have very high standards for a room, look elsewhere. If you're looking for one of the most relaxed, laid-back places in Florida: You should consider this place your next destination. Rustic environment, sometimes even dolphins in the morning (I was lucky enough to see them when I was there!)

This hotel was a really pleasant surprise. The hotel was lovely, the staff was very efficient and went out of their way to be cordial. An amazing amount of wildlife on the grounds and Don the bar tender with his parrot Mango made the day.
We loved this hotel. Perfect pool/ beach area. We canceled another hotel we had booked for this Vacation just so we could stay here again. Loved, loved, loved the place. We will be back. They also upgraded our room and allowed us to check in early. Great staff and friendly wait service. Check out Breezers happy hour half price.
This hotel was amazing! The room was great, the staff made it seem like a small town feel and they were very accommodating. Especially after was checked out and had an evening dive planned they allowed us to use the showers. I will definitely be staying there every time I dive in Key Largo. It was a much better experience than Marina Del Mar.
