I have been several times to this resort. Everytime I go it's better. The rooms are cleaned and the property itself is immaculate. If you want yo go to relax to paradise this is the place to go. I will continue going every chance I get.

We stayed in room 5. It was wonderful. Checkin with Jen was great. We were there at a slow time of year so got a great rate, Walk out your sliders to a great little deck and quasi beach area with Adirondack chairs and hammocks. Next to pool, so could be noisy if busy but was not busy when we... More

We stayed in room 10, which was an ocean view room, rather than ocean facing, but it was still lovely. The room furnishings and the bed linen were very high quality. The staff were all friendly and helpful. As a Brit, the only thing I would have added was a kettle to make tea! It is not the fanciest resort... More

Our family has stayed in many hotels in Islamorada & Drop Anchor was one of our favorites. The staff is very nice & rooms are clean. The onsite boat ramp is very convenient. We will probably stay there for now on. I highly recommend Drop Anchor Resort.

I am not sure how the ratings on this are so good, the place is really just a decent motel. If I needed a place to stay for the night for a trip it is ok. But if you are looking for a relaxing resort vacation you will be disappointed. It has a pool, and a view of the bay,... More

Very nice, cute and clean rooms. We loved that when we booked we got to see a picture on the website to see what the available rooms looked like. We loved our room and deck! Much better in person than in the picture. The staff was very nice and helpful! We would stay here again. My only con is no... More

This hotel has the classic Florida Keys feel. Our room was ocean front with a king bed, kitchenette, & patio with adirondack chairs & a picnic table, which we enjoyed breakfast & dinner at. Their tall coconut palms and colorful buildings made us feel like we were in paradise. The property is beautifully lit at night with lots of spots... More

I found the whole of the Florida Keys to be misleading, including this motel. The management pics show white sands next to the ocean but this is not a beach! It's a man-made area which is next to the pool and next to the man-made channel which goes through mangrove swamps (that you can smell as soon as you arrive)... More
