We found this little bit of paradise on Priceline and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were given a bungalow that looked onto the channel. We could put the kayak in the water right there at our room. The owner gave us the heads up on several good restaurants. If you like the look and feel of "old Florida"... More

We loved the room, pool and dock in the lagoon. Great service, friendly staff. Fully equipped kitchenette, clean comfortable rooms. Best deal in all of the Florida Keys! Will stay here every visit. Booked room for 65 a night, unheard of for the Keys. Close to many attractions including "Robbie's Pier" best place, best rates, great staff. Thank you Kingsail!!!

I didn't want to spend a ton of money for only one night so I surfed the net and found this. I was nervous reading some of the reviews but got it anyway. I'm glad I did the lady at the front desk (pregnant one) was friendly and awesome and made sure everything was ok. This place is a older... More

Our stay was a delightful excursion into the past! From the actual metal key for the door to all tiled bathroom with a convenient bottle opener in the door to the outdoor coffee cabinet picnic overlooking the lagoon to the fish cleaning station, to the somewhat rickety boat slips and launching ramp. The elevated pool area overlooking the lagoon proved... More

It did not look as good as the photos. Management was not available after 10pm and did not ensure that the noise rule was followed. Rooms were dated and cramped, bed was right on the doorway. Had to step over it to get in. Too pricey for this sub standard accomodation. We did not feel safe.

Right at the Marathon airport, centrally located to everything one would need in the middle Keys. The rooms were clean, the price was right and it was a very good stay. There is a small set of slips for those that need them.

We have stayed at the Kingsail several times and have enjoyed the staff who were very accomodating, and the cleaniness of the rooms. The rooms had a small kitchenette, living room and bedroom with two double beds. The shower was hot and had pressure. I would definently stay here again.

If you are like us and do not spend much time in your room when in the Keys, but want a nice little joint close to "town" when you do, this is the place for you. The prices are always much cheaper than other places. They have a nice pool, plentiful ice (important for coolers!), clean and updated rooms, and... More

Astronomers line up before dawn to claim a spot for telescopes on Scout Key - this motel is reasonably near, a good place to sleep during the day (if you are stargazing all night at the star party) and it is clean, convenient and safe. We had a spacious two room suite with a 3/4 bath, 2 double beds in... More
