While planning a birthday trip for my husband, I came across Tarpon Flats Inn. I wanted to find some place that wasn't a big chain hotel and that also could accommodate our boat. I'm tired of the big hotels where nobody really takes the time to get to know you and they really don't care if you are comfortable. From... More

We had a very pleasant stay here. It's a great place to stay for a dive trip. The place is comfortable, quiet and relaxing, right on the water with wonderful sunsets. We saw a manatee right off the hammock that looks over the water. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. There are bikes and kayaks available to borrow. Great seafood... More

So sorry we could only be here one nite! Gilda was super accommodating over the phone to make the reservation and left a key for us when she couldn't be there. Using the kayaks on-site was great! We just completed the release form then grabbed the life jackets and paddles and took off. Tarpon Flats is a little off the... More

We were staying here while on a dive trip to Key Largo. The location of Tarpon Flats is so beautiful and relaxing. Only four apartments on the site; all with full kitchens. There are kayaks and bicycles available to guests free of charge. Rose, who runs the place, is very friendly and helpful. She let us check in early and... More

Nice little hotel by the water. You can go on snorkeling trips with John Pennecamp State Park or snorkel from their beach, just a few minutes away. This was great. The snorkeling was awesome. I even saw tarpon and a spotted eagle ray as we as lots of colorful fish and a big barracuda! Real treats! There are free bikes... More

Hands down the BEST Inn I have ever stayed at. My husdand and I were visiting some friends and instead of staying at the chain hotels we wanted to try something more on the line of quiet and that had real Key Largo charm. Gilda the Manager of the property - who was so sweet helpful and kind greeted us... More

So often hotels are hustle and bustle and prevent you from relaxing. At Tarpon Flats the rooms are inexpensive, but clean. The location is great. And they have on-sight kayaks and bikes to tour around in. The equipment has soon better days but for free I am not complaining. We brought I daughter and also enjoyed a short walk to... More

Tarpon Flats is a true gem of Key Largo, and staying there was a major reason my recent vacation there with my girlfriend was so special and amazing. I have to agree with just about all the other good reviews on here for the property; lovely beach, swimming pool, clean rooms, comfortable beds, convenient location, well-stocked kitchen, kayaking, biking, great...

What a lovely small hotel in a quiet location! The room was comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. We used both the kayaks and the bikes multiple times. (The bikes were older and a little beat up, but so was the bike trail, so that was probably good.) We were able to kayak over to John Pennekamp State Park and... More
