Aweful expirience here at banana bay. The room had roaches, and the ice machine across the hall had tree frogs living in it! The beds were stained yellow and there was fecal matter all over the place. Smelt like someone smoked 3 packs of cigarettes inside the room! Not only that but the secretary was ruse when we tried to... More

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

The pictures on the website must be 30 years old! The place is a dump. Tiki bar, closed. Restaurant, closed. Curtains filthy as is the carpet. Wallpaper coming off walls, bathroom is disgusting. Cannot believe what they are charging for this mess. They don't even give you cream & sugar for in room coffee. Renovating? Where? I feel sorry for... More

I have never stayed in such a dump for the money they charge. They say they are renovating but yet no one takes care of the grounds. The pool was nice but the chairs and tables were so dirty. Renovating is understandable but that is no reason not to take care of the people staying . The room was so... More

We stayed at Banana Bay on a Thursday night on our way to Key West. We looked into a dozen other places to stay, we were right in picking this one. It was a very peaceful and quiet place. The resort had paths to walk thru the many kinds of trees and plants. There was a place to sit and... More

This was the worst place I have ever been at. The pictures are very old on the website not up to date. We booked through Expedia and left immediately and got our money back. Do not go or book this place they call a RESORT. 0 STAR!!!!!
