We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian for 3 days in September. Very clean, nice pool, and beautifully landscaped. We enjoyed watching the iguanas and fish off the dock. This was our first trip to the keys, and the managers were so helpful with dining, fishing, etc. They even have a friendly resident cat, "Ms. Kitty". The best part about this... More

My husband and I spent a week here and we will definitely be back. Cozy and clean rooms and it was quiet. Not like the big resorts with a bunch of kids in the pool. We had the pool to ourselves after boating all day. Our boat was docked right outside of our room. You open the curtain and there... More

Rooms are clean, Pool is very nice and clean, also shaded by trees around the sides so the water was not hot. The dock for your boat is very convenient and protected from bad weather. Easy access to Atlantic or Gulf at Vaca cut. We will be back with family or a weekend of fishing and diving with friends.

I have been staying here for the last five years. This hotel/botel is a small, quaint little hide away that serves as a perfect getaway while in the Keys. It has a small, but nice cool pool, cold AC, clean rooms, cooking and fish cleaning areas and a place for your boat if you bring one. While this may not... More

This is the REAL Keys experience...we entered our clean, briskly pre-cooled room (which was far more spacious than most botels). We didn't bring a boat, and wanted to be able to fish, which we were able to do from the dock which was literally outside our sliding glass patio door. There is a handy fish cleaning station by the boat... More

We have visited the keys many times but this was the first time we brought our boat. The Royal Hawiian Motel Botel was perfect for us. The docking was great and made boating so much easier than having to launch everyday. The room (no. 7) was large and comfortable with a full size fridge and top freezer, stove and sink.... More

All Hotels and Motels have rules and guidelines. Thank you for taking the time to write. The key word here is communication. When guests make a reservation and advise how many people are In their party and how many pets they are bringing at that moment they are advised of the fees involved. All hotels and motels that are pet... More

Great place to hang for a quick getaway!!! Friendly staff will attend to your needs. Love the setup of having your boat mourned rigth behind your room sliding glass doors. It's very convinient plus a fish cleaning station as well. Clean rooms and very affordable for the Keys. Definetedly recommend it.
