Where to begin...worst place I've ever stayed at. I work in the hospitality industry and it was disappointing to have to stay here. After checking in and expressing our concerns, they refused to refund our deposit money therefore forcing us to spend the rest of our vacation at this awful place. The room is so small it barely fits 2... More

We didn't even see the inside of the room. The grounds were very run down, which I might have been able to deal with if the inside was nice and clean but we went to the pool and the water/patio were both dirty. They said we could use one of the other properties pools but they didn't look very sanitary... More

Place is nice but no Beach as advertised, no where to put in Kayaks or you cannot swim in the Atlantic Ocean. However the place is in Grassy Key not Marathon Key (Marathon is about 10 mins away). The Bonefish is quiet and rooms are big. It's okay to stay you can drive to The beach in Marathon and put... More

What a run down place,looks like an upside down dumbster trailer with a door and a window ready to fall apart....just a dirty nasty place from the inside out.And good luck if you are 6 feet or taller to fit through the door.Parking is 5 feet of the freeway....Read all the reviews and stay somewhere else ...believe me.

We showed up at the Bonefish Resort and was dismayed due to the debris at the entry and short buildings of the motel. My husband is 6'2" and he nearly hit his head at the entry way of the door. A sign was posted to check in at the Yellow Tail Resort which was a several yards up the road.... More

The room was clean but so very old. The towels are thread bare, you can see through them. Seems there is a community of regulars there and if you are there to escape and can make due with the bare minimum, this is the place. It wasn't the place for me. The dock area is right on the water and... More

If you stay here just realize that you will be in a "Spring Break" sort of place. The ownership hasn't put any money into the up keep in what looks like decades. The bedding was disgusting with stains. I was prepared to sleep in the SUV. Would've if I hadn't brought my own linens, pillows & towels.
