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

We have been staying at one of the resorts at this location for 5 years. This year I decided to rent room 111 which is the Penthouse of the resort. It is beautiful, spacious and very well equipped. What I love most about the unit was the 2 full baths. With 4 adults that made it very handy. The beach... More

So .... After confirming a reservation for the 2 Bed/2 Bath Oceanfront suite I found these reviews. OMG... It was too close to the arrival date to request a refund. My family and i were pretty worried. We took sheets, towels, bug spray, TP etc just in case the reviews were well founded. I emailed the motel sharing my concerns... More

We enjoyed our stay here. It's got a beautiful view. The restaurant next store has great breakfast and not to bad of price for being in the keys. The lady who helped us that evening was so nice and happy too. I can't remember her name but she also works for the dolphin place across the street. We didn't use... More

If you only care about a quiet place to stay with an awesome view, it is great. If you care about the quality of your room...keep driving. Units are old park model trailers converted to bungalows. The one I stayed in (room 101) had a small Florida room attached. However, some if the windows and an unused door were boarded... More

Our first stay at the Yellow Tail Inn 5 years was in one of the trailer like cottages near the water, at the time it was acceptable, for a Keys type rental. We have stayed there 3 times in total . It was not up to a major chain Hotel level of quality however that's not what we expected being... More

We were first given a room that had bug excrement in the closet, drawers and under the pillows on the bed. The decor was dated, which would be fine if it didn't cross the line into neglected. The extra pillows did not have cases and although they gave soap there was no convenient shampoo, conditioner or dish soap. The windows... More

Waited about an hour in the car for Hotel room to be ready. Once in the room we found out quickly that half the recepticles and light fixtures in the room were not working. The hotel personel worked dilegently to try and solve the problem but all they could do was run an extension cord from one corner of the... More

Knowing that we would have a late arrival, I called the Yellowtail Inn that same morning to confirm our reservation and got no answer. Called again, no answer. This was at 8:15 a.m. their time. Called Travelocity for help since I booked through them. They were able to contact Yellowtail and confirm late arrival and instructions to be left in... More
