Captain Pips! the secret of Marathon, small with only 15 rooms, docks, and boats to rent, the perfect place for you to escape to. Weather you live in Florida or somewhere else, this is a great place! The rooms are very clean and have all that you need. If you want fancy, this is not the place to go, you... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this nice review, we really do appreciate it! We are a small resort with only a few rooms, with an "Old Florida" feel to the place. If you are looking for a big cookie cutter chain hotel we are definitely not the place for you, but if you would like something... More

The pics online are as misleading as can be! Very dirty to the point that I wasn't comfortable taking my shoes off. Carpet was stained everywhere. Staff said even though there were horrible stains, it was clean. That didn't make me feel any better. I would have slept in my car if it was cool outside. I wanted to leave... More

We are sorry that this guest did not enjoy their stay with us.

I booked on hotwire.com as condo with small kitchen. When I contacted the owner he said that there in no kitchen on the room booked... He confirmed me a double room on first floor. The situation on the Keys was great (easy to reach Key West, amazing beach). We arrive at 7pm the reception was closed (I just found an... More

We're very sorry that this guest did not like our resort and had a difficult time checking in. On all of the sites that someone can book (Hotels.com, Expedia.com, Booking.com) our information clearly states that we do close the office at 5 pm, and requests that the guest call us if they plan to arrive late. We always leave a... More

The people at Captain Pip's are so nice. Everyone was a joy to work with. We stayed in the Marlin/Sailfish which was great because of the kitchen and living room. We even had a backyard, of sorts, that we had to ourselves which was great. Having a boat slip was also very convenient. I think they need to get better... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

Stayed there 6 times over the past few years and it was the best deal in the Keys. Every room came with a complimentary center console boat. Well that is no more! That was the main reason we passed up Islamorada and went to Marathon. Without the boat included, it is just like many other places in the Keys. The... More

We are sorry that this reviewer feel like this is not the place for him any more. In answer to some of the points made - the boats were never actually "complimentary", they were always built into the price of each room. I have been with Captain Pip's for over 13 years, so I can definitely vouch for that! Yes,... More

Rented a boat for a full day and it was in just basic marginal condition. It is older and really should be taken our to servcice for the $300 basic charge. The crowning blow is being asked to rinse down the boat upon return. If Hertz, or any rental company, required their clientele to wash or rise a returning automobile... More

We are sorry that this renter did not enjoy his boat rental day with us. We have replaced the majority of our boat engines with brand new 4 stroke Yamahas over the last few weeks. Most of our boats are fairly recent models, and the few older boats that we have in the fleet have recent model engines (if not... More

This is our 3rd time to either stay at Captain Pips or rent a boat from them. We stayed in the Treetops room and it was very clean, however there were a few minor annoyances. You can hear clear conversations of neighboring guests through the walls. Even though the rooms have microwaves and coffee makers, you have to unplug one... More
