We have stayed here for years. The owners are nice and accomodating. If you want a resort go elsewhere. Love the whole laid back atmosphere in the middle of paradise. Nothing fancy. Clean and close to everything. Walk to Lorelei for great food all day and great entertainment at night.

It's just for sleeping, great location, close to everything, Lorelai, beach, restaurants, there's a burger king etc. Rooms are outdated, but you cant ask more for 55 usd per night. Free parking. Owners are always very kind. Free Wifi

This is an Old Florida hotel. If you're looking for a place with all the current amenities keep on going. If you're looking for a very clean room at a more than reasonable price with a restaurant, bar, entertainment and marina right there... Stop in! We stayed in room 4. It was a larger room than anticipated and had a... More

Upon entering our room the first thing I noticed is a rusted refrigerator a rusted stove and a rusted microwave in the room. most disgusting place I have ever stayed at in my life. The owner here is a pure biotch don't ever ask her for anything because she makes you feel like you're inconveniencing her. The rooms have no... More

Just got back home to Cape Coral today and miss this place already. Been staying at the Key Lantern for many years, very affordable as the fishing charters are getting more expensive. Great location, clean rooms and nice people, both guests and management. You will not find a more reasonable for the price stay anywhere else in the Keys. Going... More

this motel is in the heart of Islamorada not fancy but clean friendly and cheap great for fisherman or fisherwomen has great bar/ restaurant behind it and a resort across the street that has a pool and fishing pier that they don't mind you using as long as you spend some money.

We have stayed here many times. Most recently we stayed in one of the efficiencies. The rooms are large and are supplied with the essentials. I think the housekeeper simply forgot to clean the stovetop. It was a mess. Other than that everything was clean and as expected. The only new thing is the overpowering odor of Fabuloso. We are...

Ok first time staying at the Blue Finn. very nice owners and helpful. This is a clean room nothing else. Go to the surrounding resorts and use the pool and get drinks lol. The cost for the week was the same as one night elsewhere. I do hear the reviews about the disinfectant smell ( I agree it is strong)... More

Ok, the 411 is that it is a cheap -on a budget hotel room but our room just had a disinfectant odor that would not leave the room. Our wifi never ever worked either. Clean towels provided daily. I just couldn't get past the smell. Small fridge in the room, which was nice. Sheets were clean and crisp. Tv was... More

O.K. here is the 411 on Key Lantern. We are pros when it comes to travelling the Florida Keys. We visit at least 6 times a year, sometimes as a family and sometimes as a couple. We discovered the Key Lantern and Blue Fin Inn a couple of years ago and fell in love. The prices are uber affordable (75.00... More
