Myself and three friends stayed here for a fishing trip, and thoroughly enjoyed this motel and the grounds. Rooms were extremely clean. The owner and her family were the most accommodating Innkeepers I have ever stayed with, will definitely book this motel for our next trip.

The owner is fantastic. The rooms are small and cosy. Bring your own shampo or ask for it at the reception. There are restaurants at walking distance. Make sure to reserve 2-3 days in advance to see the turtles sanctuary.

Ya know you see the word motel and get scared. It's not the Hilton but I can tell you it's the cleanest place I have ever stayed. Not even the doubletree was more clean. Nothing fancy but everything worked, was clean and ice cold air. Very reasonable prices. I stay with buddies when we go fishing but I wouldn't hesitate... More

We stayed at this hotel on Valentine's Day - the lady who owns it is really nice. The rooms are very clean. All linens are hung out on a clothesline to dry so the whole property smells like freshly washed sheets. It's on the main road, easy to get too and the price is right for the Keys. Highly recommend... More

I'm on a bicycle trip through the American South. Of course I had to bicycle the Overseas Highway to Key West but not in one day. It was MLK weekend and the Keys were filled with tourists. No Vacancy signs were visible for many miles. As you approach Marathon heading south on US 1 you will see the airport on... More

Great little hotel, very friendly staff. Place is very clean and quiet room with kitchen is very useful. Loved our stay there will definitely come back. Only small issue is internet is not very reliable, but if you are here on vacation then it doesn't matter.

Very clean room. Owner was extremely friendly and made us feel like family. Reasonable prices made this a sure win! Close to area attractions. Great location. Owner had great recommendations for dinner, bars, and local beaches. Can not stress how clean our room was, every day.

While I agree with most of the previous reviews, I do feel that for the size of the room and the location it was a bit over-priced. Our room was spotless, with very nice furnishings. The front desk was very professional and helpful. If the room was a bit less in price I would have given it 5 stars, but... More

We stayed two nights at this motel for visiting Key West. The room was absolutely clean! Bathroom was not big but it was fine with us. There is no WiFi. There are many cafes and restaurants near by for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We'll said John B and Sean-Indy, thanks for the referral. Noise not a problem, great sleep with windows open. No smoking or pets, the latter not common in our searches in FL. A plus for the allergic. Has anyone mentioned the shuffleboard??? Loved it! Also loved supporting a local small business owner who so obviously appreciates her clientele.
