We made a last minute trip to join friends and were booked into a cottage room for 2 nights. I didn't ask price in advance (my fault, although I did check the web) because our friends mentioned they were paying $100 per night and that's what we typically paid for similar quality hotels in the past. We were shocked at... More

Check in is 3.30pm and we arrived at 2.30. We didn't ask for early check in, but sat in the water front chairs enjoying the view. Our room was clean and worn in places, but this is an older property. The dresser surface was sticky and could do with a wash, but we don't think it warrants the bad reviews... More

My husband, step son and I just spent 10 days here. The ocean views were amazing, the hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. I really loved the kitchenette, beach and pool. We barbecued right outside our room. Hopefully get back for another visit soon!! Great Keys vacation!!

The motel is on the bay and has a nice pool. The hotel though outdated but definitely has a charm. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly. I went there with my daughter and whatever we asked for was immediately solved. it was a very pleasant stay.

Come to Harbor Lights and toss out your status. Great location and friendly host ( Todd C.) Harbor Lights location and relaxed atmosphere makes this quaint facility the perfect little stay in Islamorada.

View is amazing if you want to be right on the ocean, great location. Booked here because they allowed dogs and price was reasonable. After reading recent reviewers before our trip, I was very apprehensive about what to expect. When we arrived man at front desk was adamant that we could not check in until 3:30 and there was no...

Very humble facilities but clean. AC was loud. Fridge did not work but was replaced the next day. Kitchen was so so but no microwave oven. No frills but you are not charged for any. But it's vacation and in the Keys. Every day felt a little better.

This hotel was clean, had excellent views and was economical. There are electrical issues that make one wonder why a fire marshal hasn't pulled the plug on this place, but overall we enjoyed our stay of eight nights. If you're picky, don't stay here. But, if you're looking for clean sheets to sleep in with an amazing sunrise view in... More
