They have spaciousness rooms and house boats that they rent so you can sleep on the dock. The ore rooms are affordable and big. The rooms have front porches we ate breakfast on. The unit we stayed in had a working kitchen and the rate was very affordable. The location in Marathon is a good central location in the keys.... More

Whether floating in the harbor or in a bungalow, it's clean and tidy and shipshape. The people are warm and interesting. People who expect corporate standards quickly depart. Absolutely the most relaxed time I've had in the Keys. That about says it.

While we really wanted to stay on one of the boats, had to settle for a room on the dock. Overall the experience was good. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Shower provided good pressure and hot water. The ambiance was great and the manager made us feel like we were truly welcome; offering us a bit... More

Floors dirty and appeared not to have been swept in some time. Air conditioner with dirt and lent hanging from it. Cheap mattress and flat pillows. Too much money for a dirty run down motel. The wifi only worked when sitting outside the office.

Enjoyed the novelty of staying on a decommissioned boat turned to a room with the helm controls still intact but the cleanliness is something left to be said. Upon arrival, noticed a few things. Smell of mildew hit you as you walked in but chalked it up to the fact that there's water all around so that can't be perfect.... More

We stayed on a floating boat tied up in the marina. It was a new experience. It accommodated the 3 of us just fine. The people were very nice, the boat was clean. Hot and Cold water, small warm shower and internet, microwave, refrigerator, and air conditioner. Make no mistake; you are staying on a floating boat. It is NOT... More

Don't be deceived by the pictures - wifi doesn't work, beds have springs sticking into you and bedding old and atrocious - you will feel awful after one night - right beside busy highway, noisy. OLD and run down, bathrooms so small you can't turn around in them, no heat, showers are too small to even wash your hair. Everyone... More

Stayed in a standard room with two double beds. We were probably in the closest unit to US1. Heard traffic noise and had lights shining in all night. No heat in the room at all. TV remote only changed channels, would not turn on/off or control volume. Could not access the free wifi. My daughter slept with a towel over... More

This was the worst motel I have ever stayed in in my life. Actually, we chose not to sleep on the beds. We literally slept in our car that night as it was the busy season and I couldn't find anywhere else to stay. Room was very dirty. Beds were disgusting... Mattresses old and lumpy. Comforters looked ancient and looked... More
