hotel in terrible conditions. the private beach is a stinky mud...The community pool is the size of a jacussi, rooms are in poor condition, dirty and smelly. This hotel is a scam, they should demolish it. disrespectful offer that . they do not make you refund! but even we prefer not to use so bad and terrible service and facilities.

We stayed there for 2 nights, the lady at the front desk (Giselle) gave us what I hope is the worst room they have. We were moved three times during our three night stay. First of all, I know Marathon stinks in general, but this “hotel” is located on a particularly smelly side of Marathon. Know that the entire place... More

We arrived there Monday evening for a 2 night stay, we had expected something fairly nice considering the money that we paid which was $300 for 2 nights. We arrived and were greeted by a older woman with glasses, she showed us where our room was, we open up our room and instantly smell a foul odor of fish, the... More

Had a great time. Loved the cottage style rooms and right on the beach. Even if it's not an oceanfront room you walk is about 5 steps then your in the sand. Rented Kayaks and had them delivered and picked up. Was able to drag right off the beach and into the Ocean. Staff is great and accommodating and I... More

We visited the Yellowtail with family and had a great time! Suite with 2 rooms was affordable (by Keys standards) and made it possible for us to all stay together. Property is not well-maintained, but was basically clean. A little disappointed that Oceanfront did not really mean ocean-accessible - You have to wade through grass and trash to get to... More

Resort fee? For what? For lights that don't work, pools of old standing water in the bathroom, no shampoo or amenities, no extra roll of toilet paper, no pillowcases on extra pillows, old stained sheets that don't stay on the lumpy mattress, a loud, outdated air conditioner set in a filthy windowsill, no headboard for reading in bed, "wi-fi" in...

We stayed in a one bedroom oceanfront efficiency which although it did have direct ocean access and view sat behind two other buildings. None of the windows opened and several looked into adjacent storage sheds which coupled with the door that opened out made it difficult to get fresh air into the rooms. The head of the bed, which had... More

Mold on shower curtain and baseboards in bathroom. Water on floor and soaked towel on sink. Insect holes on entry curtains. Small ants on floor. Very nice staff relocated us in the morning to a nicer room but it still not worth more than $50 per night. My friendly advise to the owner is to spend $300 on each room... More

Rented room/apartment 111 penthouse and had a great time with the family. Large space - two bedroom, 2 full bath, big kitchen, gigantic living room (with two futons for extra sleeping space) with fantastic view of the Atlantic (best side as the bay side can be smelly). Quiet/tranquil/not a lot of noise, felt like going back in time to quaint... More
