We stayed here for about 5 weeks, only finding out about the place from a tip from a friend. There are only about 12 RV sites with full hook-ups, we stayed down on the waterfront by the Tiki hut. The owner is on site trying to keep the cabins cleaned and the park maintained, but I know he could use... More

Stayed in one of the cottages with my husband for 3 nights. Set-up wasn't too bad - bed, 3 pillows, couch, kitchen with general appliances and bathroom. On our first night, it poured outside for a few hours. We noticed that water was pooling in the bathroom and assumed that it was from the rain. However, turned out that it... More

Manager (owner?) was very nice and got us checked in promptly...we did... More

We drove into the driveway passing the above ground pool. The pool was dirty and old looking but we were not going to swim so this really wasnt an issue. We could tell that the "cabins" were old but it was a one night stay, again not that worried. He had us look in a room for approval. It seemed... More

We stayed there April 11-13 with another couple. We had room 8 and they had room 6. Our room was newly renovated. It appeared clean but after seeing our friends room...we were leery of the whole place. (And because our room was fairly usable--I think that is why you see such a difference in ratings for the place...depends on the... More

Not to be confused with a similarly named place up the road, Bonefish Bay Motel & RV is a nice place to stay in the Keys. Read the other reviews carefully to make sure they are not talking about the other place. We were looking for a place in the middle keys to kayak, dive and ride the motorcyle and... More

Disgusting,dirty,and unsanitary. No excuse for the lack of cleanliness I can take old simple accommodations but not this! I would pay not to stay at this place ever again, it's $99 value price for accommodations in the Keys is not worth it! Your first impression when driving in is 1/3 of whats left of a tiki hut old rusted broken... More

We have stayed there for the last 12 years and it changed hands a few years ago and has went downhill ever since. Mark the owner is more interested in adding RV sites than keeping up the rooms he has. We had a verbal agreement on the 2 rooms we rented, for a week, but when we got there he... More

My fiancé and I had booked a weekend at another motel in the Upper Keys and were horrified with what we found when we arrived. It was Easter weekend and everything else was booked. We found the Bonefish Bay Motel (not to be confused with the Bonefish Resort, also in Marathon) on the internet, and called and spoke with the... More

We drove down in March and met two other couples there. We were looking for a reasonable place to meet our friends and decided we would rather that most of our budget and time would be spent on snokeling, fishing, eating out and at the Beaches then on high priced accomadations. The Bonefish Bay Motel gave us a great price... More
