Greeted very pleasantly by Rochelle she checked us in and went over all the amenities of the resort. Location was great. Hotel is not 5star it's the keys we know but the standard of the rooms were well worth the rate. They were very clean and the beds were high end hotel grade. After a personal tour by Rochelle we...

Stayed there for 1 week. The location was good. The hotel was bad. Our toilet was leaking when we got there. My husband had to fix it. Hair dryer was missing. They couldn't replace it for 3 days. Room always smelled like clorox but wasn't very clean. None of the other guests we spoke to liked the hotel either. They... More

I won't be able to fully describe how badly run this motel is, but I can give a couple of examples. I walked into the reception on my first night there to find a man trying desperately to get through to the two receptionists. It turned out that he had booked through Expedia earlier that day and travelled 4 hours... More

The restaurant is downstairs and they play karaoke 7 days a week, super loud. What is it like for Asians and white chicks to belt out old tunes until 1AM? Come stay and find out. Management simply doesn't care. There is a marina outside the 12 room hotel and it is filled with scumbags from Miami, blasting their Cuban music... More

Stay away!!! Totally understand that it's rather expensive for a room due to the time of year but this place, no matter what time of year is a dump. We're not room snobs by any standard but when the back window of our room literally fell into my arms as I was trying to open it was funny at first... More

A good scenic location. Decent value hotel. Rooms are renovated. Initial looks are good. My wife and I stayed in room #12. The door for this specific room did not close properly, it dragged on the balcony floor. Had to lift a heavy door and slam it to close. Window behind TV would not stay open. The toilet kept on...

We made our reservation 1 month prior to the our arrival date. However, an employee who claimed afterwards to be the manager ( We checked that the manager is a guy and so by no mean could be her) called us at 4:15 PM to cancel our reservation saying that they have plumbing issue in the room. We went there... More

If you book on Hotels.com make sure you call the hotel to confirm they have a room, before making the drive south, I didn’t. I confirmed my reservation at the hotel with Hotels.com, received an email with the confirmation number (8020485561301) from Hotels.com, then started my 2+ hour drive to Islamorada. After arriving the young lady at the front desk... More

We arrived in Islamorada, FL unexpectedly on Dec 13, 2015. I say unexpectedly because we were scheduled to stay in Key Largo but our reservation was canceled there. Our driver suggested Smugglers Cove. We called & they were able to accommodate us for part of our trip. We had intended to stay for 15 days, go to another inn for... More

We stayed one night at Smuggler's on a road trip of South Florida and the Keys. The rooms were recently updated which was a plus. As this is an older property we didn't expect too much but without the renovation it would of been a rough night. The hotel is located yards away from US 1 so expect to hear... More
