The bad: Unit 3A is too close to road noise, bathroom has sewer like smell and not too clean, slightly creepy low ceilings, wall panel material not tight on walls, heard what sounded like wildlife (bugs?) in the wall at night, terrible bright led lighting (should use warm white bulbs) so not cozy at all, one plastic couch and no...

The Keys are pricey when looking for places to stay. This resort is less pricey and so it has a few less amenities. We have a two bedroom unit with a full kitchen. The kitchen is minimally stocked, three plates for four people as an example. Up keep in the unit is less than what a more expensive place would... More

Truly oceanfront, right out your door. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Very private. Nice clean beach. Clean rooms. Our room was a ground floor with refrigerator, stove, microwave,coffee maker, TV, king bed. There was a long pier that you can go out on and watch the ocean life. Great local dining. Marathon is a friendly area. We would definitely go back.

We stayed 3 nights and were very pleased. The view & setting are great. We loved the long dock and saw lots of sea life. Our room was clean, but had minor imperfections. It's an older motel, but that was also part of it's charm. We would definitely stay again and felt the price was reasonable.

Got a good price for a one night stay making our way back to the mainland from the keys. Very pleasant service. We arrived early, and needed a late checkout because my husband was going fishing. Both equests were supported. Older room, but great location right on the water. Nice and clean, nothing fancy. Tiny TV with one channel, but... More

Room was very clean. Beach was raked and clean everyday. Room had a frig and microwave. Kayaks were free to use. Staff was very friendly and attentive to needs. (If you are arriving late call in advance to make arrangements).The location is great, many things close to do north or south of hotel. Only things that were not necessarily cons,... More

Made reservation through Bookings.com while on the road to Marathon to see son and family. We were told that no charges would be made to card until we checked in. No mention of cancellation fee when reservation was made. Learned later that son had made other arrangements for us so we called Sea Shell to cancel reservation around 4:00 PM.... More

We stayed in room 8. We had two queen beds and a small kitchenette. It was the perfect size for a 3 night stay for my mom and I. We loved the small pool and the hammock outside. The chairs on the beach were perfect for enjoying cocktails and watching the Sunrise. The smell of the seaweed was the only... More

Try this motel if you are looking for a renovated, affordable, clean room on the ocean. There are many places to choose from in the Keys -- most disappoint. This small property is on the ocean and offers lovely sunrise and sunset options. About half of the rooms have been renovated. Ask for one of those, i.e, #7 or #8.... More

Stayed four nights at this resort. Appeared to have been recently renovated. The furniture was uncomfortable, the one TV had a poor channel line-up, and the two bedrooms were the only rooms with air conditioning. There was not a clock in the bedrooms and the office/front desk closed at 5:00 PM daily. No ice available after the office closed. My... More
