After reading postive and negative review, we prayed and all worked out. Kingsail was a nice place, needs updates but all in all it was all we need to relax and sleep with a family on a budget. The room had a small kitchen,living area and bedroom clean and open. If your looking for a basic stay to enjoy the... More

We stayed there because we could not get anything less expensive closer to Key West. We knew it was a motel so we set our expectation bar a bit lower and we were no disappointed. We got 2 rooms, for two nights at $100.00 a night , it seemed expensive but it was the 4th of July week and not... More

We had 2 rooms for 1 night. The rooms are large with lots of storage space. Both rooms were sparsely decorated (forget the pictures and carpets in the hotel photos), Beds OK, floor clean except for the edges. The corridor and stairs leading to the rooms were dirty - and a box of someone's rubbish lying around. Staff were brief.... More

We checked into the Kingsail on 7/25/14 for one night. While checking in we really had no problems; we had a young girl assisting us who had just started so we didn't make a big deal about it. She was learning the ropes. Once we get our room, we noticed that the A/C was not cooling at all. We gave... More

Checked in, first appearance, this place is old and seriously in need of work. Outside, old peeling paint. Wood all rotted. Go into the room. Stains running down the wall. The kitchenette counter top had what looked like a coffee mug stain x2. Kitched towel just crumpled on top of the counter. Someones old undershirt hanging still in the bathroom.... More

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!!!
