Great view in Key Largo
I stayed in this hotel in room 272 for 7 hights in Feb 2004 and found it to be very comfortable, and we had a great view from the bolcony over the pool and the harbour. These rooms are certainly over sized.
Even the balcony was large. The free breakfast is also ample.
Nice Spot with Good Location
Hotel has a good location on a canel. There are a number of good restraurants and activities within walking distance. If you choose this hotel, be sure to get an 'Island View' room or your room with a view will be a parking lot and a gas station. The Island View is the canel, which is pleasant. The site is clean and well maintained. The only negative about the hotel: some of the staff seemed disinterested in statisfying their customers. In all, a good value for the price.
large, clean rooms; great pool & jacuzzi; comp. breakfast with lots of choices; beautifully decorated for Christmas. Private balconies with great view of marina; very comfortable! WARNINGS: Bogie's restaurant at Holiday Inn next door closed for dinner (at least on weekdays in Dec), water taxi to Sun Cruz is not available due to repairs; tours on African Queen not available (also next door)[none of this is the fault of the Ramada but website does advertise these things]
During the week of Oct. 25, 2003, my husband and I flew to Tampa, rented a car and found ourselves in Key Largo. We stopped at the Ramada Inn mid morning hoping we would not have to make reservations this time of year. We not only got a room immediately, we were given an excellent off season price. The room was large, bright, clean and very comfortable with its own refrigerator. The surrounding area was magnificant. A canal with yachts of various degrees of elegance was just behind the hotel. This made for interesting even strolls. Trips could be arranged to go deep sea fishing, snorkeling of diving at what appeared to be the Ramada Inn's marina. My favorite trip was to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. We snorkeled over a Spanish warship that sank in 1750. Visiting coral reefs on a catamaran was also great fun. We took a boat out to the gambling casino that operates 5 miles off the coast. If you don't like to gamble, this cruise is the cheapest high quality entertainment you might ever visit. The sunset was brilliant, and the ocean ride was soothing. At night, sand sharks gathered around the gambling casino to chase silver fish that flew out of the water for yards at a time to escape the shark. The scene was mesmorizing, especially after 28 sharks were counted. The front desk person at the Ramado always made time to give us pointers on where to go for fun, meals, etc. The advise was 100% on track! Our stay at the Ramad was truly a 5 star rating! Off season gets you a 5 star price!
Good value, good location, and pleasant
I recently visited Key Largo/ Ramada Limited to dive and snorkle. Dive shops are located within very short walking distance.
The hotel is not a resort, of which there are many in the area. It is a nice hotel, with good rooms and facilities, for a good price. There are many restaurants and shopping opportunities nearby. It is a short hop to John Pennekamp State Park.
The room was spacious with a nice balcony, twin queen beds, and a refrigerator, and very clean. They have a pool and jacuzzi. Continental breakfast included. Laundry facilities are available, which came in handy for me.
One side faces the marina and pool, the other faces the highway and neon.
Tip: Ramada has a "Best Rates" program. If you book with them online, and then find a better deal within a specified period, they will meet the price and take off an additional 10% (check out their site for details.) I did find a better price with a well known online hotel booking company, and sure enough, Ramada got right back to me and met the price, and took the extra 10% off. You'll probably get the neon side as I did for that price, but who cares, I was there to dive on the cheap.
It was good to have a nice hotel after a day out.
Great for diving
We stayed at the Ramada, Key Largo on 10 August 03 for 3 days. The rooms were bright, roomy and very clean. The complimentary breakfasts were very good and plentiful. The pool was adequate but not very exciting, but we used the pool at the sister hotel next door and this was larger and more appealing. The hotel is very convenient for fishing and diving and only a short walk from Horizon Divers, who were fantastic to dive with. I would be very happy to stay here again.
Value was right but it is just okay
Stayed there June 22 - 23, 2003. The hotel is fine for a value weekend.
It is right beside a canal where you can charter a boat for diving or fishing. The room was okay and clean. My view was not good but, I did not expect a view for the price. I was using it as a temporary place to stay to do some running around. It worked. Breakfast was included and was actually very reasonable. It included cereals, breads, fruit, coffee and teas.There is a special room to eat in although it was usually full. However, you could enjoy it back in your room or in the lobby. If you are looking for a place to sleep at night, this was a good choice. But, for a resort area where you expect to enjoy the hotel, it is not the place to stay.
Great vacation spot
We stayed there in May 2003. We brought 3 children with us and the rooms were roomy, comfortable and had a fridge. The breakfast had lots to choose from so everyone was happy. We walked to our snorkeling cruises--the Reef Roamers crew was great! We bought a state park sticker and traveled to 4 parks during our stay. We are talking about going again.
Enjoyed our Stay
My sister and I stayed at the Ramada Inn and Resort in Key Largo, FL. The hotel was nice and comfy. We had one incident of a bunch of kids/adults partying in the lobby one night making a bunch of noise and trash was everywhere. The hotel manager told us he could move our room or WE could leave! There was even blood stains on the elevator door and a carving knife on the dryer in the laundry room! Take away this one incident and our stay was pleasant. The only thing missing on the Keys is a Dunkin Donuts and finding a good cup of java after 10pm is hard to do. The weather was great. We had a wonderful time in Key West and had a Cheeseburger in Paradise in Margaritaville. Can't wait to visit again....
Great for diving
I Stayed at this hotel for a diving trip - excellent value, close enough to walk to dive boats and the local resuarants and bars. the continental breakfast is good too. Excellent budget option in the keys.

... in transit", we did not have to line up with
all of the new people coming aboard.
This was nice and took a lot of the stress out of coming back to the
ship. Sadly however, it would appear
that 3000 fairly nice people left the ship and about 3000 idiots have come
aboard. (this is an exaggeration of
course, but there are most certainly some right idiots with us now)

... and it truly is a river that, during the wet season, is 60 miles wide, 100 miles long, and travels at the staggering rate of 1/2 mile a day. It often takes the water months or even years to travel from Lake Okeechobee to the Florida Bay. I thought it was all great, with lots of birds, turtles, fish, and gators, gators, gators. A couple of things seen include a strangler fig that looked as if it were in ...
... Greatly relieved to hear this, we took the opportunity to sit for a while and look at the water-life – which was quite abundant. After this, we decided that we had seen enough of the Keys and that it was time to turn back. To be fair, it did seem that the further down the Florida Keys you head, the less influence there is from the worst of the tourist development. I can only imagine though what the traffic jams must be like on that ...
... of the USA. After some last minute shopping at Ron Johns surf-shop (famous so I'm told), we were heading back onto highway 1. We were focuses on mile marker 30 and the 18-hole mini-golf, giving Mangrove Mammas a farewell wave on route. The minigolf was its usual mix of competitive spirit and hilarity with the highlight being a long distance hole-in-one from Lizzie. I eventually took the two points with a ...

We left the campsite around 12pm and with the rain coming down quite heavily, we headed off towards southern Florida. Within an hour or so it was so bad, we could barely see where we were going. As it was lunchtime, we pulled off on the side of the road and had lumch. After a few minutes rest, we headed off ...
