I went to Key Largo during their lobstering season. Everywhere is very expensive. Holiday Inn was at $210/night. And I found this Bay Cove motel at around $100/night. After reading all the good reviews, I decided to stay here. Just by looking at the room, everything is old, and not that clean. Bed sheet was either really old or just... More

If you don't want a tall, cement monolith building but want a true Florida Keys experience, you need to stay here. The rooms are like bungalows with a kitchenette. Barbecues are provided....the bay front has chairs and lounges, and a boat dock available for its guests. It is an absolutely beautiful spot. The rooms are clean and very "keysish".....absolutely delightful....I... More

I have stayed a number of times now at Bay Cove and now love this place! Everyone is so welcoming and helps with what ever you need. Watching the sunsets from the dock is absolutely stunning. I haven't been disappointed, not once. John is an a absolutely amazing manager and definitely plan on coming back!

My husband and I visited Bay Cove Motel recently during Memorial weekend and stayed a few extra days making our short stay even more memorable. The room was very nice and comfortable and clean. The view was amazing. Everyday we did something fun and exciting. Thank you to John, the manager, who provided us with all the essential gear for... More

I visited Bay Cove for a long weekend to relax and enjoy some down time. I was not disappointed. Many large trees provide shade over the grounds and a nice breeze is always blowing. The beach is very quiet and relaxing. The views from those beach chairs is incredible. There are even grills provided to cook out. I really enjoyed... More

Loved being able to find something last minute on memorial weekend! The motel could use a little remodeling. Wifi didn't work from our room and we had ants in our bed upon arrival and throughout the room for the rest of our stay but other than that ,very friendy and attentive staff . We would come back!!

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

The staff is very accommodating. Easy walk to many places to eat, drink, or get supplies. Tables and chairs outside... More
