We needed one night stay, and somehow the reviews appeared to make this look like a good medium priced place to stay - good news you can back car right up to the rooms, so no stairs or lots of carrying for just one night; however, we were surprised when we left the next day that we had not seen...

Nasty and disgusting is the only way to describe this place!! Filthy, moldy, mildew smell! TV that didn't work! Filthy comforters on the bed.. A bare light bulb outside the window that shone in their broken blinds! Made it seem like daytime when we wanted to go to sleep! Bugs! Don't be fooled by some of these good reviews ..... More

Odd hours. Very run down. It appears that minimal effort is made to maintain the already very old and uncomfortable rooms. Don't attempt to stay here if you expect anything nice. If you come in with the expectations of a 1 or 2 star hotel, you will be fine staying here.

I read a lot of bad reviews about this place but visiting the keys during spring break is very expensive. This place was the cheapest i could find within about 50 miles of key west. Something about the adress for the hotel is not quite right, i ended up a few properties away and was told i was not the... More

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
