The managers were friendly and very helpful - hard workers! The room was basic but clean. Loved having the back sliding door open to a pier on the canal. Located only a couple of miles from a great beach - Sombrero Beach, and very near the 7 mile bridge.

We spent two nights here and were very comfortable. Nice and clean. It was lovely having two doors, one handy to your car and the other opening right beside the water. A clean and well maintained pool and very friendly owners.

The Royal Hawaiian is located close to many restaurants, marinas, Sombrero Beach and shopping. Steve and Kim were great hosts with lots of knowledge about the area. The motel is old style Florida...

My husband and I have stayed many here many times. I am very excited, we just reserved our week in July. This is such a clean, friendly and small and quaint place to stay.

We had a wonderful time visiting the Keys and found this motel to be great location for our adventures. The rooms were clean and the owners extremely accommodating and helpful. The manatees in the channel outside our room were amazing!
