Just got back from this motel. I must say the beach is fantastic, the motel a dump!!!! The room is clean, the grounds disgusting. The hoarding around the property makes you want to run out of there. After a 2 day stay my husband, son and i have come back with a fever, cough and severly sick. The ac units... More

Upon leaving, you will be moved to immediately take a shower somewhere else. We were quoted a rate by phone, made a reservation and were charged 37 additional dollars upon arrival, with no apology or correction. Upon check in we found the commode used and unflushed despite the "sanitized for your protection" paper seal. Three mangy cats have left a... More

We stayed here for the first time. With our last name of Popp, how could we not?? We had stopped in a couple times over the years (we drive down to Key West often). So we had a point of reference for my review today. The rooms were from the 50's, which is okay...but the bathroom was not highly functional,... More

The stench in the office is the first clue. Dirty bird cages and old tobacco odor could knock you over! The surface areas of the room were clean enough but I am allergic to dust and the moldings behind the headboards were caked with an old layer of filth. The pillows stunk. We wanted to keep the windows open but... More

Okay, I've read other reviews and this place may not appeal to everyone; however, first and foremost Popp's is clean and that means a lot to us. It's freshly painted and the rooms have been updated in different motifs. The office is a bit scary at first with stuff around the outside of the office but that doesn't seem to... More

Had a very nice, one-night visit here while in the Florida Keys. I had advance reservations and arrived at about 7:30 p.m. The proprieter told me that she would not be in the office but would leave my room key where I would find it. Sure enough, the office was closed when I arrived but the key was easy to... More

My wife and I stayed at Popp's for a major birthday celebration. We were attracted to the site and to the fact that the Bayfront motel had been in continuous family operation since the 1950s. We splurged on cabin 9, the one with the Bay view. Well, it felt a bit like nothing had been invested here since the 1950s,... More

Nothing else available so we stayed here. it is old 50's Florida, very small shower's, window banger's for AC but it was right on the water. The one thing I can say it was clean so it will do in a pinch.

My family and I have been frequent guests of Popps Motel since 1984. This multi generation owned motel is THE best place for rest, relaxation and the most beautiful sunsets on the private dock. Linda Popps , the owner and her son Luke have retained the Keys atmosphere by updating the rooms which are spotless, providing amenities in the kitchen... More
