My son and I enjoyed our stay at the Blackfin Resort. We stayed for 3 nights in June 2015. The motel is maybe what you would call Old Florida style, but I think it fit the character of the keys well. The people who worked there were friendly and nice, and responded immediately to fix a problem I had with... More

We just stayed in the adjoining rooms 49 and 50, which combined make a two bedroom suite. This is our 5th stay at the Blackfin Resort. It is our go-to hotel for the middle keys. We like the hotel because it suits our vacation well. We love to snorkel, and this hotel is right in the center of the best... More

We enjoyed staying here during our trip to the keys. We spent 2 days in the marathon area and black fin is right in the perfect location for all the nearby attractions, state parks and beaches. Affordable, very pet friendly (the pet fee is cheaper here than at most places) and has beautiful grounds to walk around. There's a gorgeous... More

This is not our usual destination type, as it's a little dated. But the staff worked exceptionally hard to make the stay nice and the view of sunset is outstanding, the grounds are well kept and the pool was immaculate. The location is very close to a Publix, so picking up groceries was very convenient. If you want to travel... More

If your looking for a classy, state-of-the-art, modern luxury hotel - this is not it. The rooms are outdated, and the housekeeping is lacking in detail (we found beer bottles stuffed behind the television when we checked in). Still, overall, the room was tidy and functional. There is a area in the back that overlooks the ocean, provides boat mooring,... More

My family of six stayed here for three nights, two in a room. We reserved in January for an April stay and had no problems reserving three rooms. Not sure if it would have been a problem had we reserved later. We requested all three rooms to be next to each other and towards the water, based on other tripadvisor... More

We stayed at Blackfin a year ago and really liked it. It was clean enough, big enough, convenient enough, and the price was OK. So, we called on 5/18/15 to get a room that we'd seen the rate of $93 online. We were told the rate was $120, but he'd let us have it for $104. He asked where we... More

We stayed one night on our way to Key West. We arrived late, after office hours. They called and let us know how to pick up our room key and left the lights on in the room. Customer service is absolutely wonderful. The room seemed like we had stepped back into the 1950s. The rooms appear to be very basic,... More

Clean and quiet motel from the motor lodge era. The room was clean, A/C kept it cool and it was in a good location for Bahia State park for snorkeling and the Sunset Grill for dining and partying. It was a decent value for $100 that close to Key West.

It was about 9pm on Friday night of conch fest (in key west). Nowhere had rooms available and especially none that would allow my dog... We thought about sneaking him in to mariott for $400 a night but that wasn't really a good option...finally I stumbled upon Blackfin. I called and was very pleased with the ~150 rate and they...
