We spent the last few days of our vacation here. The room was very clean and it was great to have the kitchen to make meals. We would sit out at the picnic I-BBQ seating area to relax or read and talk with other guests. We would open the sliding glass doors to view the water or sit out on... More

We have been staying at the Royal Hawaiian for over 20 years, with the same owners. Love the place, the location, boat ramp and the kitchenette. It is always clean and the hotel staff has always been friendly and accomodating. We go about 3 times a year and never stay anywhere else. Be back in March 2015. See you soon,... More

We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian from Jan. 3-5. We originally booked only for 2 nights and were planning to book a hotel in Key West for the last night, but after staying the first night, decided to stay where we were and just drive to Key West for the day. We stayed in a room with a kitchenette and... More

A friend recommended the Royal Hawaiian and I'm so happy she did! We spent four relaxing nights in a nice clean motel room right on the water. The room was large and very well maintained, with sliding glass doors onto a porch where you tie up your boat and/or sit and enjoy the scenery. We like to go to Marathon... More

Don’t know how we missed the Royal Hawaiian in the past. The room was large, beds comfortable, bathroom good with almost instant hot water in the shower and the kitchenette was very well supplied with cookware and dishes. We were especially pleased with the lack of mildew or mold in the rooms, which has been a problem at every other... More

Great restful time with family. Enjoyed the pool and BBQ area. Loved the fact that you can launch your boat at their private ramp and dock it right outside your room. Nice clean rooms and great location! - Lots to do. Good restaurants near by. Highly recommend it.

If you are planning on taking a trip to the keys and the Key West party scene is too much for you, this motel is a great get away! My girlfriend and I stayed at Royal Hawaiian for a weekend in October while visiting some family in FL and we had a great time. Very relaxing atmosphere and centrally located... More

Last week I drive with my granddaughter (17) and my grandson(22) from Kansas city, Mo on our way to Key West; we had left a day early and planned to stopping the 2nd day in "the keys" before getting to Key West (our chk in was Sun). We stopped at a major motel in Marathon and was told that there... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay that was not too expensive, and wound up being delighted by what we found. This appears to be run/owned by a husband and wife team who were very friendly and helpful. The outside of the hotel has a lot of vegetation, which at first glance made it appear unkempt,... More
