Well , the room was good size and beds were comfy. Bathroom was clean......BUT My bed was not fully made ( only 1 sheet ) , old coffee grounds in pot basket , dust bunnies the size of small bats hanging from ceiling plaster and we read the paper through the bath towels !!!

I was very skeptical prior to arriving at this hotel as I have never stayed in Marathon before but after reading all the previous reviews I decided it had to be given a chance and I was pleasantly surprised and extremely happy with the choice. Our room was clean and the staff was very friendly, even if we decided to... More

We stayed in this resort in May this year. I was a bit wary when booking but the price was good so I gave it a go. I am glad I did because our stay was fantastic. The only regret I have is that we only booked two nights. Everything was perfect from the staff who were welcoming pleasant and... More

We go to the Middle Keys 3 to 5 times a year to do long weekend snorkel trips, and we stay the Black Fin every time now. We've stayed at some other motels nearby, and for the money and convenience you can't beat it. It's clean, friendly, has a nice pool, a good boat ramp, a small marina, a peninsula... More

This was an albeit, tiny, but quaint and affordable room in an overpriced area (i.e. anywhere in the Keys). It was pet-friendly, clean, and, honestly, better than expected. y husband and I only stayed for one night, along with my sisters (each had their own room). They also agreed that for the money it was a LOVELY little place. Will... More

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
