Another sad tale of travelers beware! My wife and I spend a lot of time inKey Largo. We have walked by the Boatel many times. 3 months ago we decided to take a chance and book one of the houseboats for thr 4th of July weekend. We meet with George, who checked his calendar and said he had a houseboat... More

Do not think of it as a hotel. Do not think of it as a house boat. Think of it instead as a redneck floating trailer with all the 'upkeep issues' that come to mind, and think of yourself as 'going camping on the mangroves in Key Largo, but WITHOUT all the issues of putting up a tent, and the...

A hotel that looks good on the paper but is in reality the worse experience ever. A hotel on a boat ? What a great idea. Yes if it was a least clean (humidity smell, dirty sheets, rusty bathroom...) and not managed by someone rising up price when he understands we are toursits easy to cheat on. After one night...

Awesome people. Awesome environment. Just a plain out awesome experience. Prices were absolutely worth it. I travel to the keys a couple times a year and this place is definitely the most laid back down to earth place we've ever stayed at.

We loved it !!! My family also rented kayaks and headed through the mangroves and through The park. The owner was... More

First and foremost, This place was NOT my first choice! My first was The Keys Rouseboat Rentals, where the boats were much nicer looking and newer. They run about 50-250$ higher in price and get sold out quick! I am however glad they were sold out when I called, because I do not feel I would have had the same... More

I came to Key Largo to dive with my buddy. It's always a good idea to check the dive centers' options and compare with other rentals. In my opinion, what the KL house boatel can offer you is just awesome in this case: you can wake up with the amazing sunrise at John Pennenkamp Coral Reef State Park, you can... More

Worst place we're ever stayed and would not let us cancel. The floor was falling in and the boat was in disrepair. We checked out after the first night but manager refused to give our money back. Lesson learned. Do not rent these boatels.
