With much anticipation for arriving at the Blackfin Resort and Marina my sister had reserved, I was shocked to see it was nothing more than a drive-up motel from the 50's. Admittedly, the room appeared clean, though very small. There was a fridge and microwave. I happened to be sleeping next to the roaring air-conditioner which blew furiously on me... More

I ended up staying with friends but these people bent over backwards to accommodate my girlfriend, dog and myself. If we need a place to stay in the future it will be with them. Sorry for the cancelation. I will be stopping by to delver some fish/lobster sometime soon!

The hotel seems to be remodeled. Rooms are very clean, beds are confortable, small refrigerador and microwave. The room was small but bathroom remodeled and very clean. Good to sleep but not much of a resort.

I wasn't expecting luxury, however this place is depressing. Our back sliding patio door looked directly into the neighbours across a communal area stacked with chairs so the blind was shut all the time. To block out the light from outside at night we were given pillow cases to stuff round the window. The electric socket cover on one wall... More

This was our second trip their and we loved it. The property is well kept and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The bar that is on the property is very good as well. I suggest you stop in if you are staying at the motel.

I made my reservation over the phone with Trish and asked about the ocean view room I saw online if it was still available for October 18, 2014. She said there was two ocean view rooms available and I would be better off with the one further away from the ocean but with a nice shade. Perfect! I love shades,... More

This is just the way you remember Florida motels from the 1950s & 60s. It is all one floor and not particularly attractive on the outside with rather informal lush landscaping, but the inside was surprisingly large and spotlessly clean. It is in the middle of Marathon with a Publix supermarket a few blocks away and a little bar and... More

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
