LOVE THIS PLACE! It's CLEAN, AFFORDABLE, STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND ACCOMODATING! When you are in Islamorada all you need is a shower and a clean bed, if you are looking for fancy shmancie GO ELSEWHERE. This is for people not only on a budget but for the WISE TRAVELER! I rather put my money into the KEYS ECONOMY by going... More

I usually stay at their sister property, Sunset Inn, and made reservation there but they over booked and moved me to the Key Lantern Inn. The room was actually lower in price and I enjoyed it even more than Sunset Inn. Room was very large with nice ammenities. The property was quite and peaceful and staff was very accomodating. I...

If you are looking for a great place to stay that is reasonable priced this is the place. It's clean but not fancy. If you stay at the Blue Fin. I am not sure about the Key Lantern. You can also walk to Lorelei Restaurant and watch the Sunset eat and drink. Nice place to stay great prices..

Room was clean, breakfast close by as well as tikibar. Cute place. 20minutes south is BahiaHonda park where we spent our days. Then fishing our evenings. So it was nice to not pay an arm & a leg for somewhere to just sleep and shower.

I spent two nights at the Blue Finn Inn. My trip was more focused on Fishing and Diving, and not too concerned about staying at a 5 star resort, due to the fact that my wife wasn’t with. She would normally pick a Ritz or “W” type resort, and this was the total opposite. My room and bathroom was very... More

We stayed one night at the Key Lantern Motel. This is a very basic no frills motel. If you are looking for a resort style hotel, look elsewhere. Our room had a kitchenette with one double bed. The furniture showed showed nicks and scratches plus a few stains. However, the room was clean. If you are looking for an inexpensive... More

this is an old property in Islamorada that offers extremely low prices during the weekdays. now, you get what you pay for, so don't expect resort style luxury. what you can expect is a clean, quiet, and safe place to stay. we had a room out back that was basically a cement block; but it was clean and comfortable, and...

We had a roomy, lovely, kitchenette that was clean, conveniently located and pretty quiet. It was quite inexpensive by Keys standards, and the 7th day of our stay was free. Not perfect--mattress sagged a bit and two burners on the stove didn't work, but we also had a full sized refrigerator and were able to fix most of our own... More

Key Lantern/Blue Finn Inn isn't a luxury hotel in the keys, but is an excellent find for travelers that are looking for a quiet and clean place to sleep at a very affordable price. I stayed in the hotel room with the full kitchenette and it was very spacious and I was very happy with what I received for the... More
