I fell from a poorly maintained deck at Ed's apartment on Narcissus Ave. in Big Pine on April 4, 2014, losing my hearing aid and cell phone. The deck had openings that allowed my chair's leg to slip through and dump me into the channel. I expected Ed to offer some compensation for my upcoming expenses, but he demanded full... More

I came down to Key Largo with a group of friends to have a nice weekend in the Keys to kayak and grill. This place was, by far, the worst part of our vacation. More than the terrible up keep(ants, dirty sheets) and outdated "amenities"(or lack there of), the owners were downright rude. Well aware of the slight upcharge for... More

First of all, the place is hard to find off the Overseas Highway. But, once you find it, you'll want to hurry into the main office, which is littered with piles of rolled-up architectural drawings, old pillows and sheets, dated appliances, lots of old crap, and an old desk where guests "register" and check in. There, you'll meet "Ed", who'll... More

We were in the Keys for a long weekend and didn't want to drive down to Key West so after looking at the reviews decided to try Ed and Ellens. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was ideal and bith Ed and Ellen were friendly and helpful. We will be back.

We booked this place mainly for its budget price. It is essentially a basement suite, it has a very noisy air conditioner (that we elected not to use - sweated it out instead), a television located next to the ceiling, no chairs to sit in (I don't count stools), and beds very poorly made. All in all, not very comfortable.... More

This is an old. budget motel. Not near beach. Clean. Old linens, towels sheets etc. Small bathroom with an ultra water saver shower head... Road noise and very noisy air conditioner. Nice owner. Good location at the start of the keys.

My husband and I debated how far from Key West to say, since I am not fond of bridges nor do I like paying outrageous prices for a room. Ed and Ellen's on Big Pine Key was the perfect solution. They have 2 identical duplexes on the same street. We stayed in the one furthest away from the road and... More

Ed and Ellen were both great, they make you feel like your at home! Ed gave us good advice on the area and gave us some coupons. He is quite the character. The hotel was like a home away from home. Very clean. No complaints. Plan on staying again for our next visit to key largo.

I thought Ed was a character, funny if you understood he's just messing around. He was very helpful with questions about things like where to eat. I was diving in the area on a Saturday and Sunday in Key Largo. He let me check in early ("I'm going to be up anyway") so I could get my stuff in the... More
