This place I wish I could have stayed longer. Right on the Gulf with a place to boat and swim (not a beach so might not be good for small children). The rooms were clean (we had three of them), the laundry worked and the pool was heated. Great small restaurant/ bar on premises for good pub food. The front... More

We enjoyed a 5 night stay over Christmas. The room was very clean upon arrival but it was hard to get housekeeping to clean or bring towels. We got our own towels most days. The point is a beautiful place to relax overlooking the Gulf of Mexico; there are lounge chairs and a hammock along with a tiki hut and... More

This retro style hotel is dog friendly and offers a peaceful retreat from the craziness that is the overseas highway. Rooms are clean in in great shape. Bed was super comfortable. Efficiency units are large and closer to water. Feels like old Florida. Great spot on the water to watch the sunset and enjoy breezes. Each time we return they... More

I'm giving this a 2 because the owner(?) was so nice. The room was ok. It seemed clean sheets and towels. Efficiency but I wouldn't cook there. Room was very musty and we didn't stay (were fortunate to get a room at the Holiday Inn for $25 more a night). If you like retro: really old school, this is your... More

Trailered our 28 ft cruiser from Canada. We had stayed at this resort several times by car. The day we arrived by water the Gulf was really rough, we radioed in and were met by at least 10 people who helped us dock. the occupants of the marina accepted us like old friends. We wound up staying three weeks till... More

Blackfin is not a resort by today's standards. But it is a clean, comfortable motel with a retro 1960's feel. The rooms are very spacious with lots of storage space. There is a nice little beach on site that is typical for the keys. But realize beaches in the keys are not at all like beaches in mainland Florida. There... More

The Blackfin Resort and Marina is a slice of classic keys paradise that is pet friendly and is a great value for the area that it is in. Dan the front office man checked us in and told us of local good places to eat and a good beach spot, very good tips that made our stay better. Very well... More

We were very disappointed with this motel. The only thing good about our room was the comfortable bed. No wonder the management left a plunger in the bathroom because we had to constantly use it! The bedspread was dirty and old. I asked cleaning staff for extra towels and never received them. Maybe the motel has 2 sides- one cheap... More

On arrival and checking into our room we noticed no towels. We went to the office and the. night attendant stated the maid when home sick and he thought our room was ready. He apologized and immediately upgraded our room which was clean and comfortable. The building is older but the rooms are upgraded. There's a lovely fishing area by... More
