We stayed here over the weekend. We travel to the Keys pretty regularly so we know that many hotels are not the Ritz and we should not expect that. This however was definitely surprising and not in a good way. Our reservation was for a "garden view" room. So here it goes... We walked through the double doors of our... More

Great staff, Paul the dockmaster, even pumped out the boat holding tank while we were gone. the most amazing views of Florida Bay if you have the right slip. Clean showers and several other nice boaters who stay there for months at a time.

I hate writing this review, but this place was NOT what is shown on the website or in the photos. It is pretty much in a state of disrepair. We were there three nights, and I didn't feel clean the entire time, even though I showered every day. The carpets were disgusting - I never took off my flip flops.... More

The staff was very personable and helpful. The room was spacious and clean...had everything except a microwave. Liked the two separate bathrooms concept... Toilet and shower in one area and another sink, etc. outside of that. The grounds and marina were beautiful. Too bad the restaurant was closed. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed 3 nights and after the initial negative impression, we came to really enjoy our stay. The first room we were assigned stank of tobacco so were moved to a larger and quieter room in "Poolside" . Unfortunately, the room was very dark. The Staff was very helpful and quick when I asked for a lightbulb to replace a... More

Our room was average. It was clean, the air worked and it was comfortable enough. The staff was really nice and very helpful. They let us print our boarding passes for home for free. The bar and pool were nice and the drinks reasonably priced. I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget. The location was great as... More
