I absolutely loved my stay there. Clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are small. Heck the rooms are small but fine. The beauty is the fantastic small sitting/relaxing area facing the Gulf. Yes, small. But lovely and quiet with many chairs for lounging. They had a stand up paddle board and some kayaks you could borrow-that was great. I noticed bikes... More

This is my favorite Islamorada motel of all. Reasonably priced, great location, nice rooms, and very peaceful. Docking for boats on the bayside, and a nice beach area for relaxing. Very good wifi throughout the property.

Stayed here for 4 days. Had to change room because of scheduling, which did cause cofusion for the staff. Scott was very welcoming and was eager to point out local places to visit which were great. Other staff were less helpful. Rooms were alittle dated but clean. Pool was lovely. Bikes and kayaks were available for use, free. A local... More

We enjoyed our second stay at the La Jolla Resort. As the first time, the rooms are clean and easily accessible. Even being a few hours early for check in, our room was ready for us. That was a big help as we were able to start our day! Scott and staff continue to keep the grounds beautiful. We really... More

Our group of 8 stayed 2 nights on our way down to Key West. Staff was very friendly, rooms were good sized and clean! Beach area was nice to hang out and have a few drinks. Unfortunately it was pretty windy, so we never did get a chance to try out the free kayaks. The location was perfect to walk... More

We stopped for a night here on our way to Key West. What a gem! We had a room with a kitchenette. Upstairs room with a view of the bay. Comfortable and clean. They had free kayaks for use, which was a nice perk. This inn is within walking distance of several restaurants and small shops. We would stay here... More

Clean and comfortable. It takes you back to another time when things didn't move so fast. Walking distance to Lorelei Restaurant where you can listen to excellent live music and watch the sunset and if you get up early you can walk across the road and see the sun rise. Make sure you stop at Mangrove Mike's Cafe for breakfast... More

What a lovely little place right on the water. I can't say enough about the service we received by Scott and Brendon. I brought my 79/80 year old parents to Florida, first time in the keys and was so happy we chose this property to spend our week. Every request we made was quickly taken care of by Scott and...

This place has all the charm in the world... 1950s vibe building. Really clean rooms and a layed back atmosphere. My dad has been coming for years! I hope to come and take advantage BIKES AND KAYAKS! The staff is the just the best! They make the place memorable! Can't wait to come visit again
