We loved this hotel, the owner wasd very friendly. The room although quite small was clean and had everything we needed. I liked the way it had been given an individual style with the painting on the wall. Loved the private beach area. Watching the sun go down was fab. This is a lovely, quiet,relaxing place and would recommend it... More

This was our 5th year staying at the Blackfin Resort and our stay was great as usual. Every year there is an improvement made to the resort, the docks are all new and very nice! The rooms are clean. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. The kids went kayaking (available for renting) and had a blast.

This is a old style drive in hotel with some great features. Stayed 2 nights on our way to Key West. Basic room was clean and nice clean bathroom although no where to put toiletries.Ended up pulling a chair near door to put items on as did not want them on the floor. Air conditioner worked great at keeping the... More

Just finished up our stay here and would not recommend this place to anyone. Our first room was infested with BEDBUGS! We were out on the water and requested management to switch all of our belongings to a new room and they did not. They did move our rooms but no reimbursement was offered. Not to mention the rooms are... More

Let's be upfront here. This is not a luxury resort. In fact, when we pulled into the tight parking lot in front of our motel room (we were in unit 24), we were highly skeptical. However, once we unlocked the door we were put at ease. We only stayed one night on a driving tour through the Keys, so we... More

I was very skeptical prior to arriving at this hotel as I have never stayed in Marathon before but after reading all the previous reviews I decided it had to be given a chance and I was pleasantly surprised and extremely happy with the choice. Our room was clean and the staff was very friendly, even if we decided to... More

We stayed in this resort in May this year. I was a bit wary when booking but the price was good so I gave it a go. I am glad I did because our stay was fantastic. The only regret I have is that we only booked two nights. Everything was perfect from the staff who were welcoming pleasant and... More

We go to the Middle Keys 3 to 5 times a year to do long weekend snorkel trips, and we stay the Black Fin every time now. We've stayed at some other motels nearby, and for the money and convenience you can't beat it. It's clean, friendly, has a nice pool, a good boat ramp, a small marina, a peninsula... More

This was an albeit, tiny, but quaint and affordable room in an overpriced area (i.e. anywhere in the Keys). It was pet-friendly, clean, and, honestly, better than expected. y husband and I only stayed for one night, along with my sisters (each had their own room). They also agreed that for the money it was a LOVELY little place. Will... More
