The restaurant and bar are really nice. They serve good food at a decent price and the drinks are nice and tight and priced right. The hotel on the other hand needs updating badly. The marina is very nice and it looks like they put a lot of work into it. They have a very nice little cabana area out... More

I recently stayed at smugglers cove, it was the absolute dirtiest place imaginable. The room had this smell of throw up and cat urine, while the yellow walls were only painted up to where the painters arm could reach (guess they cant afford a ladder). The floors looked they were never washed just had this weird film on them??? As... More

We recently stayed at the smugglers cove. If I had to describe our stay in one word it would be HORRIFIC! When you walk in the room they have air fresheners hanging firm the ceiling fan and the ac unit. First thing we find is the maids money envelope that they leave to reuse for each guest. I turn it...

I live locally. Did not stay at the hotel. Kept hearing ads and rumors of there great hamburgers so had the opportunity to stop by and try one. Burger was very good, at least a half pound. It was cooked as specified (med. rare) served on a lightly toasted steamed bun. Juicy, nice flavor. Had the coleslaw as a side,... More

Stayed here while using Freedom Boat Club. Freedoms dock is right at the front of the hotel which works our great. The rooms looked to have been refurbished with the last 18 Months. You can tell they are trying to upgrade things. Will try and stay here every time I use Freedoms Boats.

Driving down on a guys only fishing trip with boat in tow, I was sure nothing would knock us off our horse. We are all pretty salty and accustomed to sleeping on boats, sand or not at all and knowing the weekend was about the water hotel worries were last on my mind. I'm a very understanding person and a... More

Located on Snake Creek. A very small motel with it's office in a small trailer in the parking lot. Friendly staff. If boating for the day and you need to catch a bite to eat for lunch or dinner then maybe, the food was okay and dock space is available but if you think is is a hotel you will... More

In the heart of Islamorada. A wonderful place to hang your hat and fill your belly. The food and service was very good - I look forward to returning for the conch fritters and bloody mary's. The band was great, took requests and played "covers." The room was clean, comfortable and in-line with the price point. Bring your own bath... More

Lively bar and very friendly staff. Caught some Tuna on a charter and the chef prepared it wonderfully. Rooms were a little old but neat and clean. Good place to stop on our way to the lower keys. You can arrange a boat out of smugglers or one of the many marinas close by.
