“Low Keyed in the Keys”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Great accomodations, service, view and atmosphere. We had a nice suite and enjoyed the pool and the view for two nights. Having Snappers next door was an added feature allowing me to have a drink or two and walk home. We will be back!

After a long drive from Ft. Lauderdale(due to Hwy accidents), we arrived at Dove Creek. We checked in only to find out that the room I thought I had booked was not the room I was getting. According to the website, when making the reservation, I thought we had a one bedroom suite w/ a kitchenette. Even after looking at the site again, it looks like this is the room I was reserving. The front desk was nice, but explained that the room I would be getting was a suite, but w/o a kitchenette. They offered to try to find me other accommodations somewhere else, but I explained to her that my brother was also staying here, so going someplace else was not an option. I was not happy w/ the mix up, but the front desk was nice enough to offer me a disc. She checked us in and and showed us to our room. It was a nice room that was shown to be a ocean view, but when we got to the room, our screened porch faced an outdoor stairwell. Not doing so well with our check in. We settled in and went down to the pool area to relax. The pool is small, and we were staying during Easter week, so I thought that it may be difficult to enjoy the pool, but this was not the case during the entire week. As the days went on and I relaxed, I realized just how nice this property is. All the people that work here went out of their way for us. The rooms were cleaned adequately every day if you wanted. Their breakfast was nicely done every morning and if you needed any information on places to eat or things to do, they always had suggestions from their experiences. Next door is a nice restaurant w/ good seafood(Snappers), and a nice bar w/ live music to relax to. Overall I found Dove Creek to be a very nice place to stay. I would come back in a second. If you are staying in Key Largo, you cannot go wrong staying at Dove Creek. Room 306 is the room w/ a view of the stairwell.

Our 2nd floor room was very comfortable, freshly decorated, separate BR and living area, with a nice view of the pool and harbor. The screened-in porch was unexpected. The pool was of sufficient size, as was the hottub, but the hottub was not very hot. The small beach area could have used better seating, but it was very clean and quiet. The location next to Snappers restaurant was convenient (and Snappers is a fine place to eat, with great outside dining and an excellent selection of food). The sign for Dove Creek on Rt1 is easy to miss. Breakfast was unique, with a very nice variety of cold items, even some parfaits; sufficient yet easy to serve. The staff was very helpful. Overall, a very comfortable and quiet night.

Great find. Nice rooms with great shower, aircon was a bit random but wasn't a problem. Loved the pool area and the free kayaks. Breakfast was fine, not massive but enough bits and pieces to keep you going. Snappers next door was very handy and really friendly. Never felt that the place was busy even though we were there at spring break. Would defo go back.

My wife and I came to the Dove Creek Lodge not expecting much and taking all of the previous reviews with a grain of salt. WOW were we wrong.

Arrived here and almost immediately Stephanie took care of use throughout our stay and made us feel like the only guests staying here.

The budget rooms are functional and comfortable and the view of the bay and with Snapper's right next door and the nightly entertainment - what else could you ask for.

We looked at some of our other lodging choices that we were contemplating and are truly glad we chose Dove Creek Lodge.

Definitely recommend anyone coming to the Keys come stay here.

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel on the ocean. Very clean and nice rooms. There was a very good restaurant right next to hotel that was very kid friendly. The hotel had kayaks available for use and hammocks and a swing in the gazebo. The breakfast was included and was very good with yogurt parfaits, bagels, toast and cereal. I would stay here again.
