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 The double room was small, old/outdated, but at least it was clean.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

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

Made a reservation over the phone and got a confirmation number. We made a phone call to see when the office closed the day of arrival and planned to get there before closing. When we tried to check in they said they had us down for a no show the night before and had no rooms. When asked about our... More

We were driving from Key West to Miami and found this motel in a proximity of Sombrero beach planning ahead (it was fully booked when we came). We were planned to spent afternoon and morning on a beach and only sleep in this motel. Of course it is not a resort. We got big room (probably porch was converted to... More

This motel is in a great location to explore this area of the Keys. About an hour from Key West, it's an easy drive and also close to shopping, banks, beaches and more. Our unit had an older fridge and stove. Other than one burner of the stove not working, the kitchen was quite function and we were able to... More

My Husband & I were with another couple & for some reason each of us was given a room that would sleep 4. So I would have to say I was given bad information. We could of saved close to $200.00.
