Kathy, the owner, is a sweetheart. We've stayed here a few times and love it. It's located right across from the airport, so we could sit outside and watch the planes come and go. VERY clean and affordable. Beds were comfy and clean. Ample bedding provided. Fridge and microwave. There is a patio area where you can grill. You can't... More

I've waited months to post this review because I wanted it to NOT be colored by the experience my husband and I had when we last stayed at the anchor inn. We go to the keys every year...the week after thanksgiving. We have always stayed at the anchor inn. Not this year. The woman who owns the hotel was extremely... More

Best little mom and pop motel around. Had a great night. Spent the day at the beach and then checked in by already reserving it over the phone ... Key was left in the room and all we had to do was walk in. Great location to wonderful resutrants and excursions!

I have had the opportunity of referring my Son, A cousin and my best friend to this motel. It is a small place only about 8 rooms but it is charming. Kathy is so sweet and helpful (she is who booked the room). The rooms have all been very comfortable and clean. They stayed in rooms 1,3 and 6 which... More

Me,my wife, daughter and two year old grandson were thrown out of this motel on Christmas Day! Their website said the motel was pet friendly and It turns out that is not exactly the case. The story begins with us checking in and deciding to leave our two small dogs in the room. We turned on the TV closed the... More

There seem to only be two types of properties on the Keys, Resort Hotels or Old Keys Motels. This is one of the Motels. It's one story with only about 8 rooms. The owner Kathy is great and owns and operates with her partner, so she books by phone, not in person. Don't let that concern you. When you arrive,... More

My brother and I stayed here one night during our road trip up and down the Keys. We loved this motel. You cannot beat the value. I believe it was $79 plus tax for a room with 2 beds. The room was adorable with Florida type decorations. The beds were comfortable. There was air conditioning. The shower was fine. It... More
