I did a lot of reviewing online, and this sounded like a perfect little mom & pop-type place that was away from the rat race of Key West with reasonable pricing. Here's your warning: The place is filthy dirty, and had there not been 95% occupancy during the week of February we were visiting the Keys, we would have run... More

Second time in the Keys in 20 years, decided on a quick get away with the wife this time. Now, we did not expect anything other than a clean place to sleep that was reasonably priced during the Memorial Holiday weekend no less. That's exactly what we got, so mission accomplished! Location is about 25 minutes north of the Key... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and I'm so thankful we did because it encouraged us to go out on a dive after not diving for a year after getting certified. Those that stay at the resort get a 10% discount in the dive shop on everything including trips. Their rates are also affordable to start with. We were told... More

Looe Key is an okay place to stay - close to Key West if you want to stay somewhere that won't break the bank. Nothing fancy, but the price is right. Room was clean, adequate towels in the bathroom, bed was okay. They play at the tiki bar until 10 PM so this might be a problem if you have... More

Looe Key Dive Center has a motel attached that is affordable and quite adequate if you're just looking for a place with comfortable beds, a hot shower, and the basic necessities. This is not for anyone who expects anything fancy, but definitely suited my daughter and my needs for our week in the Keys! The girl at the front desk... More

watch out.. owners have spent little to nothing on maintenance, and it shows, tho staff are generally helpful, the bar is noisy and smoky and the beds have a lot to be desired.. warning stay at your own risk..

This motel has potential but it needs some TLC. After researching places to stay in the Keys and realizing we didn't want to pay ridiculous rates in Key West, we chose the Looe Key Reef Resort. The room was big with two comfortable queen beds and clean linens. I can handle outdated but there were a few minor issues with... More

*The hotel has great diving opportunities for both the new and old. There is deep diving on the local wreck. And there is tons of shallow water diving between the fingers of Looe Key reef. You can snorkel between 3 feet deep and down to 25 feet deep. Or you might be interested in diving in the shallow waters for... More

This is one of the worst places that I have stayed. Clean, but VERY run down. The only plus is the diving operation located on the property - professional, and very courteous - and the wifi (excellent). (Don't forget to ask for the 10% discount at the dive shop if you stay here, as they do not advertise it.) The... More
