Kingsail resort is an average motel in a decent place, the rooms are spacious enough although not very new. We had a very negative experience here. The second night, after having changed room, the personnel forgot to leave the keys for us. We had told them of our late arrival but they simply forgot us. We had to look for... More

Nice large clean rooms but noisy old A/C from seemingly the 1970s. Has a pool at the back which I was in alone to start with until a family of gypsies arrived poolside who started arguing with their children non stop at full volume. I don't think they were guests there as the back gate of the pool opens onto... More

Horrible service, rude staff, no music allowed, my buddies got the cheap table a little burnt (like 2 little cig burns) and they charged us $390 for a "new table". They didn't even say hello or goodbye, they went directly to payment. The hotel owner came yelling at us saying she was the owner to turn the music down or... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 2 children - when we arrived we asked whether there was any chance of getting a room facing the marina and were told very rudely that the motel was full and we'd get what was assigned to us; as my wife put it: 'she just wanted to swipe our credit card...

Four of us stayed at the Kingsail Motel in Marathon in March 2014. We choose Marathon because we wanted to be within driving distance to Key West and wanted to avoid the high hotel prices in Key West. We choose Kingsail cause it was reasonably priced and it wasn't a chain hotel. This was perfect. It was a pleasant and... More

Spent only one night here. The double room was small, old/outdated, but at least it was clean. The 'fridge and microwave worked. No complimentary toiletries. The "coffee service" is in a cabinet, down by the docks. The coffee urn looked a bit suspect, so we went to CVS and bought a couple cheap coffee cups and some Starbucks Via coffee.... More

After reading mixed reviews, I didn't know what to expect of this place. Check out was fast, however I do recommend calling and confirming your reservation prior to your arrival. My room was #141, right on the water overlooking the dock. Gorgeous and peaceful. Bed was very comfortable and clean. I didn't see any roaches or iguanas. The next day... More

dirty rooms, hard beds, and all the quality you'd excpect in a $39 room. problem was we paid $165 after all fees. the pool area is ok - but that's just nature in action. this is a last resort if the island is sold out.

There are so many negative reviews of this motel that I was leery, but the price was right and we were only going to be sleeping and showering here, so I took a chance. Number one, we got a free upgrade to a 2 room suite (some mix up with Expedia). It was built in probably 1950's but it has... More

Tried to stay 2 nights at the Kingsail resort on Feb 7-9. During the week of the 7th, was informed by work that I had to cancel my trip. I called 4 days prior to me checking in and was told that the cancellation policy was 7 days notice. I have stayed in resorts from Holiday Inn all the way... More
