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...

We stayed at this hotel the last week of March. The grounds are really nice, best place to watch the sunset I think, the pool is a lot of fun. The staff was helpful, especially Charlie! We did however have a few issues, the first room had a problem, and although they could not move us that day, they did... More

We got what we expected with a $150 room when everything else in Marathon and Key West was >$300. It was clean and a good basic value... Service was friendly and we enjoyed seeing a manatee in the marina. However the bed in 44 was miserably hard and uneven... It should be replaced.

Nice and quiet stay, friendly service and visitors. The room was very comfortable and very clean. Beautiful setting, nice quiet places to sit, eat or cook on the water. Nice central location for visiting the keys. Look forward to staying again.

We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Check in was a breeze. The grounds are wonderful and well maintained. The room was spacious. The only in room issue is one of the two beds was very noisy/creaky. The pool area is very tranquil. The beach area is a great place to watch a beautiful sunset. Lots of amenities nearby. The only...

Perhaps the Blackfin was better a few years ago but it's a run-down dump now. We had adjacent rooms with out in-laws. Both were very, very dirty. All four of us were disgusted. Very noisy A/C too boot. My wife wanted to go elsewhere but we booked with booking.com and a refund was not possible. Perhaps some of the Blackfin... More

Not bad for a last minute weekend. Very nice management, pet friendly. Room was large enough but I would have liked a bigger bathroom. The grounds were nicely kept and lushly planted. All in all our stay was just fine and we plan to return another time.

Great bang for your buck. Good staff. Love the grounds themselves and hanging in the public spaces near the ocean. Would go back. Only complaint was some if the burners were out on the stove. To be fair I didn't mention it to staff.
