We stayed here because everything else in Marathon was booked up. We would have been better off staying in our car for the night. They are in business because of the lack of available rooms in the area. The room was moldy and broken down. Fixtures in the bathroom were literally broken and falling off the wall. The room was...

Always check your Trip Advisor reviews before booking. My "houseboat" was dirty and I am checking all the next day for fleas, scratchy things and such! Yuck Although it was different, it was NOT different in a good way and I wish I hadn't tried it.

Never stay here. Dirty, unfriendly, disgusting, ew. Mold and dirt everywhere, bad AC, overall false advertisement. Faucets leaked salt water, cannot use full kitchen, towels and beds are dirty, very nasty and expensive! Does not even deserve 1 star! Beds are only springs!

My family decided to make a last minute trip to Key West for New Years and everything was booked up and really expensive so we found this place. They have bungalows and houseboats to rent. It could be a neat place but they need to put some money into it to update the bungalows and have a daily maid service... More

Dirty, dirty, dirty! The entire room was disgusting. Dead bugs throughout. Blood stains on shower curtain. Floor was filthy. Hair in the shower. The beds were awful! Outdated TV and appliances. I mean, does this hotel not get inspected?? It was so bad that I felt disrespected! See photos. Awful!

The owner of this place is shady and will overcharge you. We looked at the rooms (boats) the concept is cool but the beds are gross. We wanted to camp in the keys but all of the state parks were full and hotel prices were very high so we checked out this place. First we found it on booking.com for... More

When contacting Sea Cove Motel and Marina. The manager stated that they had to receive payment prior to rental since they have an outdated system instead of a person being able to reserve the room with a credit card hold. Upon arriving at a little after 3 pm to check out the floating room for the night, my boyfriend and... More

We booked this for 2 nights, the price was good, we couldn't afford to stay in Key West, which is only an hours drive, so thought this would be a good option. The first room we were shown was disgusting.....smelly, dirty bathroom with ants and the floor was filthy. Went straight to the office to complain, and to be fair... More
