My white sox were black after two trips from bathroom to bed. Tables were not clean either. An old rundown motel with at least a quarter inch of air space on all sides of the door. Front desk clerk said they are installing new locks but they also need all new doors. The bed was way too soft and the... More

If you looking for a nice place in Marathon, Fl., this is your place. It's no frills, but very spacious rooms, very clean, and the staff is awesome ! You have your own little man made beach to watch the sunset, with nothing in your way. It's an old Florida style Motel, which is exactly what I love. It's only... More

We got here on a Sunday mid September and honestly the only places open were Pizza Hut, KFC & iHop. Everywhere decent is closed for the season. The hotel itself was not as expected, the rooms are like portacabins and although clean and adequate for a night I wouldn't recommend it unless you were in need. It's not that cheap... More

This was the second time my family has stayed at this resort. It's not the Hilton but the rooms are clean and there is a restaurant/bar at the front for convenient meals. The grounds are very nice, lots of plants and trees for shade. The little "beach" at the end of the marina is perfect for watching a sunset!

We love this place! Have stayed here many times and if coming to Marathon this is our go to place. Rooms are renovated, clean and comfortable. They have a boat launch with slips to keep your boat and a nice area with hammocks and lounge chairs to watch the amazing sunsets.

This place does not look like much from the road, but once you drive it, it goes all the way to a marina along with a little swimming area complete with mini lighthouse to sit on. There are hammocks and grills placed throughout for people to use, as well. Our room was on par with typical Keys motels. Clean and... More

After looking for a budget motel to spend a few nights, I found the Blackfin to be above my expectations offering a very clean bug free room soft beds and a safe place for the kids to play in the pool.. I caught my first shark at the marina pier and think the general manager has his game on target..... More

If you are looking for a $400 per night Hilton type hotel, don't stay here. But if you want a good value in an older, well maintained traditional Florida Keys motel the Black Fin is great! Centrally located in the Keys, Marathon is a good location for reasonable snorkeling trips and nice ocean view restaurants. The staff were very friendly... More

I have stayed here twice and highly recommend it. Bring your own pillow and the AC is the loud window shaker but, if you want to see the Keys the way they used to be stay here. Watch the sunset here, eat giant KW shrimp here. See lobster and sharks here. This is where you see what has been all... More
