When I found the place I was a little nervous because it is very small and looked worn. However, when I walked into the room I was greeted by a pleasant, fresh smell, clean linens, just enough space, and a pleasant view out the back slider of the docks. You can come by car or boat and have a place... More

Very clean rooms, stocked kitchen and loaner fishing rods, you can't beat that in the Keys. The canal for your boat is clean and deep, plenty of room for docking. I highly recommend the Royal Hawaiian.

When most of the high priced places were full and we needed a place to stay, the Royal Hawaiian was there with a lovely large room that the two couples in our party were able to share comfortably. The place is enveloped in beautiful plantings on three sides, with a small deck over the waterway on the remaining side. An... More

We stayed three nights the first week of March 2014 in a unit with a kitchenette and 2 double beds (and there was a fold up cot). It was very clean, quiet even though it's by the main road. (The lush landscaping may help.) The sliding door opened up to a deck right beside the canal where we could have... More

Enjoyed staying at Royal Hawaiian - the motel/botel had character and you can't beat the price. The location was perfect for us. The room was clean and the beds were good. The only downside was the housekeeping - they didn't clean your room up daily or make your beds. They replenished your coffee and gave you new towels. However, to... More

My wife and I stayed at Royal Hawaiian for three days and found the room to be very nice and the staff very helpful and accommodating. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. This made a great place to relax at the end of the day. In the evening we were interested in doing some fishing and the... More

Great motel for its price. Very very clean. We wanted to drive to Key West, but didn't want to spend tons of money on Key West hotels, so staying in Marathon was a good idea. Royal Hawaiian was a great choice. It is right off the highway but we didn't hear any noise from the road. We enjoyed our stay... More

A very nice place for the price, really clean and a friendly welcome by the owners! A recommandation at 1h15 from Key West. And it's also a "botel" (or boatel) = you may arrive by boat via the canal. Martin from Quebec City, Canada
