  • Stayed with Bill & Geri for 3 nights in April while we explored the Everglades and Big Cypress National Preserve. Had a great time. Rooms are clean and comfortable. This is and old motel so they are not ADA. Being in a wheelchair they were very functional except for the bathroom doorway. Had to do the old transfer from the wheelchair to a chair in the doorway and scoot over trick. But what is adventure travel without a little adventure. We loved staying here and look forward to coming back. Bill was great with information about the area and places for us to go that would work with the wheelchair. The guide they recommended Captain Bruce Hitchcock with No Free Lunch Charters was fantastic. A full day of fishing, birding and back country tour. This was the highlight of our 3 week Florida trip.

    -- Stayed April 2015, as a couple
  • We stayed in the Cottage for three nights and can highly recommend it highly enough. It's comfortable, well equipped, is very clean and in a great spot on Chokoloskee Island. Bill and his wife are excellent hosts - they couldn't have made us feel more comfortable and helpfully guided us with recommendations of what to do and where to eat etc. These were spot on and really added to our stay. We look forward to returning in the future. Thank you.

    -- Stayed April 2015, traveled with family
  • My son and I travelled to Chokoloskee Island as part of a week vacation in Floriday. We felt that the hotel had all the amenities necessary for a pleasant stay. The room we had had two queen beds, a good tv and a very clean bathroom. The space was ample for us and we both slept well on the quality beds. I would stay again if I visit the area again.

    -- Stayed March 2015, travelling with familys
  • We arrived for the Everglades Seafood Festival with reservations to stay at the Parkway Motel and Marina. What we found was a simple yet equipped 4 room motel on the island of Chokoloskee. What made this stay excellent was the "above and beyond" customer service that was provided by Bill and Geri. On many occasions they went out of their way to help us when we needed it. Unfortunately we were not able to partake in the local fishing area. When we are able to return to Chokoloskee, FL we will definitely visit this small motel and marina again.
