I feel that this hotel is way overpriced for what you get. It is clean, but the beds are not comfortable at all..my husband and I sunk into the middle the whole night. The drain in the tub wouldn't stay up, so it filled with water the whole time. Also, there were little tiny ants in the bathroom. The staff... More

It is well known that the hotel price levels are high in Key West and Blue Marlin Motel was the option we found that offered best value for money. But it is still the most expensive Motel I ever stayed in. The location is great, within walking distance from most attractions in Old Town Key West. A great feature is... More

I picked the Blue Marlin because of it's location, but we just loved it there! The location is great, the room that we had (myself, husband, and 10 year old son) was fabulous (roomy, and quite comfortable), and we just had an absolute blast! The staff was really nice, and the pool was great. I would definitely recommend it to... More

Blue Marlin's location is unbeatable. 200 meter to beach and very close to famous Duvall street. Rooms are huge and clean. Parking lot is available. Front office guys and gals are helpful and always smiling. Thanks to them. I highly recommend this hotel.

Very helpful staff and in proximity to all places downtown Key West. Room was relatives spacious, as it could accomodate us (4 traveller, plus suitcases and bags). The only caveat: Wifi was very slow - but hey - its only WIFIs and you are on vacation. Definitely a good choice for a stay in Conch's capital.

drove into key west for the weekend with no reservations for the first night; there is free parking with a pool in the center of the property. nothing luxurious however this hotel was easy to find, clean, and within walking distance to the southernmost point and southernmost point cafe.

Blue Marlin Motel is a very good value for a stay in Key West. It is not a high end resort or posh hotel, but it is a very nice place to stay for a reasonable price. The southernmost point is a block and a half away, and a nice sand beach is located a reasonable walk of about ten... More

I stayed for two nights in June 2014. While I have stayed at nicer places for the value of Blue Marlin I cannot complain. The room was clean with nice cable tv. The pool was very nice. Overall it was a good value when compared to similar lodging in Key West. I would not hesitate to stay again.

This was a nice place to stay for a night. The room was pretty clean except the floor was dirty. The beds were nice. The pool area was good, accept it was always crowded. The staff were nice, but the breakfast wasn't very satisfying. There was only little pastries and toast. They had coffee, but the juice machine was broken... More
