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

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
