It worked out well staying at the Pelican Hotel in Key Largo. Such a treat it is to take advantage of the great waterfront and all the activities. Recreation is so easy here since you can walk or bicycle ride to so many things. We don't need anything super fancy, but we do need something to be very clean. That's our number one problem with any bad hotels, they have to be clean. I love that show on tv where they go around to hotels and rate them. I am sure plenty of people have watched these tv shows and that has made them realize it's better to have more emphasis on cleaning when you run a hotel. For some reason some of the hotels in the Florida Keys have gotten a few bad recommendations. I think the number one hotel amenity to have is a screened porch. It is really nice when you are back at your hotel, but not cooped in between four walls. Make sure you Try the Overseas Kitchen Cafe while you were here for breakfast. For those that are looking for a boater friendly hotel I would recommend the Hampton Boat Dockage. Probably the Best Thing we Did during the entire vacation was the Kayak Florida Bay.
