We stayed at Bay Cove for the second time last weekend. We had a group of 18 people and we each had our own little cottage room. John is the manager and is very helpful and always available to the guests. This hotel right in the heart of Key Largo, reasonably priced and comfortable. If you like high priced 'chain'... More

A group of four of us spent the weekend at this waterfront gem. The staff was amazing and a true joy to be around. The location is unbeatable as there are beautiful waterfront restaurants and bars within walking distance. Great place to stay for a boating trip as the staff provides equipment free of charge and other discounts. The rates... More

Great vintage motel in the heart of Key Largo! John does a fantastic job managing the property. We enjoyed the private beach, the dock, kayaks, a small boat launch and the wonderful tree canopy which kept us cool and sheltered from the midday sun. John keeps the property quiet, we didn't have to contend with loud partiers, cars zooming in... More

A group of 19 of us stayed here for the weekend. We had the best time. Clean rooms, kayaks to use - free of charge, beach towels, nice dock to sit on, boat ramp, tables and chairs with water view. The staff is very accommodating. Easy walk to many places to eat, drink, or get supplies. Tables and chairs outside... More

A small group of ours was looking for an affordable waterfront property for a weekend getaway in Key Largo. Couldn't have asked for a better location & staff to accommodate our needs. John was super helpful with acoomodations and recommendations of the area, and even recommended a wonderful man, Don Owens, for a boat rental for a weekend on the... More

Had a great time in Key Largo- and a large part of that was due to our staying at Bay Cove. It is not a brand new, shiny, trendy place to stay- but if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing spot, this is it. I took my 12 year old son and was a little worried that there is not... More

This place is definitely a hidden gem! Awesome place to stay for the family! Private beach, free kayaking, sit in the dock and wAtch the amazing sunsets! We also snorkeled and saw lots of sea life! The most amazing was a manatee that came right up to us. She wanted fresh water poured in her mouth! Trip of a lifetime!... More

My wife and I have been coming to the bay cove motel for 10 years and just celebrated our 5th anniversary there. We love coming down here it is a very old keys feel nothing modern about it, basic no frills accommodations, always friendly folks sitting and drinking and chilling outside, great bay front location, free grills and kayaks available....

John, the residence manager, and Margo were extremely helpful, pleasant, and welcoming. They really made the experience memorable. The dock out back was the perfect place to watch the sunset. The location in Key Largo was perfect for us, very near to the National Rental car place, and with a great breakfast place next door. The rooms were very reasonably... More

We rented the trailer next to where the manager stayed and John was totally accommodating and available. The digs were a bit time worn but clean and a perfect place for 2. A boat ramp into the bay for boating and a decent restaurant right next door. No pool. You can swim at the beach or use free kayaks. We... More
