Is it the Ritz? No. Is it a Super 8? No. It's the Keys! What it is is a hotel that worked well for us. We were very satisfied. The rate was a little high for us, but not for Spring Break in the Keys. I hope people understand that there are two main buildings in this hotel. One is... More

This resort is in the middle of a major renovation. The work is being done near the marina and the pool. they should start work on the area we stayed in ASAP! The hall was dark and dingy. The carpet was stained. The ice machine was industrial sized and you had to shovel your ice out with an ice shovel... More

Just what we needed for our week in the keys. Very nice employees, and decent hotel-style room (when in the keys, don't be fooled by the "resort" attached to everything's name, most places are just hotels and motels). The attached marina was pretty nice and there was a nice place by the water to sit and soak in some sun.... More

Was a bit pricey for the room and all they didn't offer. I totally understand all the cash flow is going to the new renovated area...that's all great. But lower the price of a night stay.. it's not even close to a comparable stay at other resorts. We did actually like the pool even know that area tiki,bar,food areas were... More

The pictures on the website and the accompanying information is very misleading. The staff is friendly, major renovations are underway, and the location is convenient. Nearly every surface and piece of furniture is in such bad shape that no amount of cleaning can make it look fine to use. Ex. Broken slats on lawn chairs, rusty towels racks, stained hallway...

Being remodeled -- stay away until finished - run down with wet floors and pelting wallpaper. All kinds of promises on service and facilities but sure not here yet. THEN read the fine print on taxes and fees because they are NOT included in the quoted price.

Broken down property dating back to the 1960's. Room was old and beaten up as was the building as a whole. Closet had two hangers from Target. Sheets were clean but stained. Have stayed at nicer Motel 8s. Way, way overpriced. Avoid this property.

The room was Very out-dated and unattractive, the beds were old and uncomfortable. No continental breakfast, no coffee, nothing, nada. For $171.00 I was very disappointed. I only saw one employee the entire night and morning. He was the one at the front desk when we checked in and out and wasn't very personable.

I booked a room over the phone and the person quoted the price as $119. When I arrived to pay, the charge was significantly more at $147. The person over the phone failed to mention that tax wasn't included, and what is more, that there was also a "resort fee" added on to the $119. I mentioned this discrepancy when... More

Sooo...4 guys planning on a flea-bag motel for a blue collar fishing trip book this place coming in from Boston....I can honestly say this is the worst place I have ever stayed....and again I was expecting a dive. Horrible beds, the carpet in the hallway could have been on a CSI episode, the rollaway we got was DISGUSTING, the mattress... More
