My family and I came down to the Florida Keys for a mini vacation, We decided to stay in Key Largo at the "Key Largo House Boatel" It was very neat to have our entire stay on the boat. 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.

After 2 hours and getting febreeze from the staff (who said "you should have smelled it earlier") we gave up and moved. We hope to get our... More

This place is also called the House Boat Hotel. We thought the idea of staying in a houseboat was romantic. And it is, but not here. The location is very beautiful and the managers are very nice but the property is extremely run down. The boat listed to the starboard side and smelled strongly of mildew. The carpet was torn...

I HIGHLY suggest you check out the review from Reneeborg of Traverse City, Michigan. It is right on. The people are nice. Location is great - especially to watch the stars. It is inexpensive and you get what you pay for - and they are updating/sheets are clean - but some serious resources should be put into new beds and... More
