I stayed at this place with my fiance when down here on business, and there was crumbs in the bed, the floor was absolutely disgusting. The trash didn't have a bag in it and had old food and garbage at the bottom. The TV didn't work, well it did but there was a horrible ringing noise. The toilet wouldn't flush... More

The staff and rooms were great! Great rooms at great prices. From the bungalows to the boat houses, all were nice and a great location. They are on the water and close to everything. Quiet and relaxing! Definitely staying again for next year's vacation!

OMG where do I start???!!! We reserved and paid for a Houseboat with a queen bed. When we checked in at the make-shift office, we were placed in the "Boathouse", which was basically a shack on a dock. It wasn't what I saw on the internet and I didn't see the actual houseboats I thought we reserved. The room reeked... More

We checked in to the Sea Cove as it was in our price range. I hindsight we would have paid the extra $100 and stayed at the Holiday Inn. There was only one room left close to the road. It was noisy and there was a neon light flashing just outside our window. We knew all that up front so... More

The Sea Cove Resort advertises that the "Floating Rooms offers unique “Keys-style” real floating accomodation for guests who prefer lodging on water. What the motel does not disclose anywhere is that an 18-inch step up is required to actually get into the houseboat. For those of us with short legs, this presents a big problem. I actually had to get... More

Think 3rd world then lower your expectations. 4 sheets of toilet paper left on roll when we checked in. Microwave had someone's leftover dinner in it and turntable platter was missing. Shower handle fell off. Some guests said they had no water. Bed wasn't made up the 2nd day. Manager said that it was the owner's policy not to make... More

My friend and I tried to find an affordable place for one night in the Florida Keys. After we couldn't find anything in Key West we drove back to Marathon. Luckily we stopped at the Sea Cove Motel. The owner gave us the last room which was a cute little houseboat. He was super friendly and very helpful. The boat... More

Made the mistake of staying here. The boat was in poor condition to say the best! The floor rug was dirty, tatered, and the boat floor was giving way! No glassware in the two foot by four foot bathroom. The light did not work and on lampshade was bent out of shape. The matrass on the plywood bed did not... More
