“Cleanest, friendliest hotel for an adventure in a eco wilderness”

Great advice, good breakfast, quiet and clean, clean clean. Enthusiastic and happy staff, kayak arranged and left from the hotel lobby. Highly recommend, great value. Good location nestled in Everglades City and restaurants walkable after a day birding and kayaking.

“Excellent Stay”

We had an excellent stay at the Ivey House. The rooms and property were immaculate and the staff very attentive. We are very particular about cleanliness and order and this establishment filled the bill. Our experience at the Ivey House evoked memories of “Old Florida.” Would recommend to all who are looking for a base from which to explore the beauty of the Everglades.

“Everything you need at a good price”

Clean, comfortable, cheap, great location, includes breakfast and parking.

I know why this place is rated as #1 from so many sources. Couldn’t ask for more. Breakfast was good for the price – waffles, hard boiled eggs, cheese, fruit, pastries, breads and cereals. Front desk helped us arrange a kayak tour, which was wonderful, and a Wootens tour, which was terrible. See separate reviews about those. (Tip, do the kayak thing – then go to the National Park small boat tour.)

I would definitely stay here again.
