Stayed in Hotel for three nights but never found the ocean front as shown on review??? No one around at check in or check out until after 9:15 in the morning. The room was clean, quiet and for the price you get what you pay for. Traveling all the way to the keys I would end up paying for something... More

Booked to stay here for 2 weeks with our 32ft Fifth Wheel, and on arrival at our designated pitch, had we not paid the balance for our stay, we would probably have just headed straight out again. There was absolutely no way to reverse into the space without help and cars, trucks, tables etc having to be moved. Fortunately for... More

Perfect location, Duck Key on one side and Marathon on the other, everyone here were so nice and helpful. We stayed here on the way to Keywest. We will definitely be back next yr. It's a very clean room to lay your head down with great air conditioning/bed/fridg.. One small issue was no outlet in bathroom. No issue for me... More

They missed a change of our booking, so we had as family of 5 to stay in one big room. But the staff was extremly friendly and helpfull and the gave us a good discount due to the problem. The room itself was big, very clean and well equipped with a full kitchen. The location is direct at the highway... More

This motel is such a gem. The rooms are spacious, two double beds with a large tv, fridge and microwave. The bathroom is fine with a large shower and lovely hot water. The only thing I think it's missing is a kettle. We parked right outside our door and the staff were so friendly. We drove to all the attractions... More

We were surprised to find this little jewel. This is an older RV park and small motel straight out of the 1950s. Given the obvious age of the motel, we were pleased how well-kept it was. The floors and corners were clean and there was fresh paint all around. Room was small but had a big shower. Amenities were limited... More

We stayed here one night, and we'd definitely stay here again! We booked a Friday night stay for $67 (including tax!), and you'd be hard-pressed find another place between Marathon and Key West that's less than double that price. We weren't expecting a lot (we're used to staying in hostels, etc.), but this place is a gem--the rooms are exceptionally... More

Great place to stay in the middle of the Keys. Staff, especially Nancee is great and very helpful. Room was very nice (floors need to be mopped daily) and the pier and gazebo are great for fishing (if you fish) and sunset watching. For people fishing, I have friends who fish there and have told me about sharks grabbing the... More

This place was cheap, so we booked it. The site we booked through said it was pet friendly. Far from it. Only one single room is dog friendly. We got charged for our dog. $150. Fine, whatever we paid it. But reading the rules, they charge for everything. I mean I know their fees are cheap, but thats because they... More

Dear Guest, Due to our small size (only 9) rooms we can not allow for all rooms to be "Pet Friendly". We have designated specific rooms to be used by pet guest that are more easily accessible to grassy areas and have higher sound control. We do this so that pets are not disturbing to other guest. As for your... More
