Second time staying here since we enjoyed our stay so much the first time. Reading up on recent reviews I was a little concerned since the ratings had dropped. First off, we once again enjoyed our stay. We had boat 5 this time and found it to be very comfortable, with good air conditioning, good appliances, and the water pressure... More

Unique way to enjoy Key Largo and the Florida Keys on these cute and funky docked Houseboats. Ranging in size from small for 2 to a two story multiple bedroom larger Houseboat. Reasonably priced and fully furnished. Quiet area on the water, conveniently located near a breakfast / lunch restaurant.

Neat idea to stay on a boat and right on the water but... Badly in need of repairs top to bottom. Some areas of the floor are rotted and soft, water pressure terrible. Unit had been cleaned but things need replacing. Beds okay but no closets or drawers anywhere - silverware nasty looking and odd pieces. Walls need painting but... More

We have been to the Boatel in Key Largo twice now. The most recent was last week when my husband and son stayed there. While the Boatel is by no stretch a brick and mortar Hilton, etc., it IS a good value and quite the hoot! All the Boatels are lashed together which is similar to having "neighbors" next to... More

Well yes, a/c is noisy and everything is not brand new...but it's A BOAT, not a resort! :) Really nice hideaway, value for money. Beds are comfortable enough and it's great to have breakfast on your own deck. For two people staying in a medium-sized boat we had more space than in our apartment back home!

found mold on pillow cases and the floor gushed everytime youd walk. Later I found the boat sunk and only had been plugged and raised one month before we rented. Only good thing is the view. The price was cheap for a place on the keys. But YOUR BETTER if you rent a tent.

We havent had a boat sink there since hurricane katrina. I have a manager on the property to take care of the peoples needs. To say the boat sank 1 week ago makes me laugh,I think I would know if one of my boats sank. More

I was surprised at the high ratings for this place. There were 4 boats parked very close together. Fortunately, the people next door were quiet. I can't say that for the air conditioner on the next boat that had an annoyingly loud clanging sound. I never saw George. The cleaning lady was very nice and helpful but I didn't find... More

There is no easier and faster way to get out on the water than to check into a houseboat hotel. You need not have a boating license or navigation skills. These floating hotel rooms are permanently tied to a dock right in picturesque Largo Sound. With opportunities to rent power boats and kayaks right at the hotel docks, there are... More
