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

I had some doubts when reserving this place - I was afraid it's a 2nd grade motel, old and not so clean, but the good reviews on TripAdvisor together with the reasonable price for the keys convinced me to go for it. Externally it seems an old motel, but the rooms are quite newly renovated, clean and spacious. The pool... More

Arrived in the middle of a summer storm. Lightening hit a transformer across the street as we were checking in and blew out most of the tv's in the resort. Our room was spared. It was as clean as any I have stayed in. Great stay. The beds were extremely comfortable.

My room was the large efficiency. It was very nice & clean. The bed was comfy. We bought our dog which... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find there is a pool here at Blackfin Resort and Marina, along with a waterfront area from which we saw both sunrise and sunset. The place reminded me of places in Michigan's Upper Peninsula - not fancy but very nice and relaxing. Be sure to use insect repellent on your legs if you sit out... More

Old hotel but in a good, quiet location. TV didn't work very well but it was not a big deal. nice area in back to watch the sunset. Decent place to stay that will not break the bank. Take a trip to sombrero beach for a nice relaxing walk or to spend part of your day.
