This is an absolute gem of a find. OK its very basic and a bit tired, but its clean, spacious and the location is awesome for its price! The bonus is its on one of the few sandy beaches in the Keys. Maid service and clean towels daily, A.C in both rooms and a large fridge freezer. We stayed in... More

We had called a couple months prior to travelling to the keys and decided to stay in/around Marathon Key as it seemed more family friendly than some of the other keys. Key Colony Beach Motel was one of the more inexpensive places to stay and called to make a reservation. Unfortunately, all their newly remodeled rooms were already reserved (they... More

It's nice to hear you enjoyed staying here. We try hard to be the best. Our other rooms are being remodeled this summer, hopefully, but they are still nice roomy rooms. Some of the largest in the Keys. Cant wait to see you again. The Staff More

If you're looking to stay at the beach at a reasonable price this may be the place for you. I enjoy "old Florida", and this place certainly qualifies as such. It's not fancy, and is even a bit run down. But it is very clean and at a great location. There are plenty of chairs on the beach, plus tables... More

I really appreciate your review. We are aged but I wouldn't say rundown. Having said that, we are doing some fairly major renovations this summer. Have to keep the old girl looking good and fit. 60 years old this year. Gone through 4 major hurricanes and was skirted by hundreds more! Wheew, time flies! Happy to hear you enjoyed your... More

So peaceful and relaxing. We had our own private beach. Nobody bothered us. The rooms were clean and charming. It's a great little hideaway, off the beaten path, but very accessible to all your wants and needs! Excellent location and will definitely stay here again!!!

Understand that this is a 1950s motel, so no frills, nothing fancy. However, its clean and the rooms have been somewhat renovated, but they retain the charm of the 1950s hotel by not dry-walling, not replacing the old crank windows and leaving the original shelf/bar at the back of the room. The bathroom, which was nice, and pool are handicap... More

We stay there several times a year, the room are clean but air conditioners don't work all the time, disorganized management and staff and I was treated poorly by the older lady behind the counter. There's a lot of places to stay in the Keys, I won't be staying here anymore!!

Key Colony Beach Motel, even though an older place, was a nice place to stay. It was clean and the location was great, being on the beach. And they had been doing renovations and updating the rooms. My only complaint was that there were no coffee pots or microwaves in the room, but we soon found out that this was... More

We've been to this motel over 15 years ago and it has been maintained in a lovely manner. You simply cannot find any place like this right on the beach for the price. The room was extremely clean and you could tell it was thoroughly bleached which I love. We were in a newly renovated bathroom room and it was... More
