This hotel has obviously been around a long time but the location is great for the middle keys! The room was warm (window air conditioner didn't work) but there is lots of room and a VERY large patio/deck for hanging out. Definitely worth the money.

We went on a girls (womans) trip for a week through Florida..after searching on the internet for a spot that would "feel" like the keys-I came across this hotel. It was PERFECT!!! We had a ground floor room (#1) 2 beds, Living room/ Kitch combo-opening our front door to a private patio, grill table and chairs with a view of... More

Motel reminded us of a '60s motel on a major highway which has not been updated. Room smelled terrible - musty with a lot of smoking. The road noise from nearby US 1 continued through the night. The worst was that a quite robust waterbug/palmetto bug decided to get under the sheets with me around 3 AM so i didn't... More

What a disappointment! We were really excited to stay at this “step back in time to the way things used to be. When you enter our property you will feel like you are back in the 1950�s.” resort. We were hoping for the ‘50’s feel they advertise, but didn’t find that at all! The grounds are cute, so things were... More

We loved this place! We had room nr. 6, and the MOST incredible view from out patio! The palm trees, the sea, the sky -- wonderful! And the birds! Our apartment was fine. Could have used a bit more storage space in the bedroom. The furniture all looked relatively new and was in great shape. It has a good location... More

If you are looking for a taste of "Old Florida" in the Keys, this is it. If you are only happy with the Ritz, keep driving. Small property with a terrific view. Two piers for even better gazing. Giant palms with a hammock on the beach. Lovely. The room itself (#5 - King) was freshly painted and immaculately clean. Kitchenette... More

This small hotel is on the highway in Marathon. It is a small location on the beach. There is some noise from the cars on the road but the wind from the beach will nullify this noise. The beach is beautiful here. The rooms are clean and quaint. The beds were comfortable and all the amenities were functional. For a... More

Stopped in based on the view of the beach from the unit. We got an awesome night rate on a whim. If you are looking for 5 star, keep going you will not be happy. The view, old world keys vibe. It is dated--- but loosen up for gods sakes you are in the keys. I thought for the age... More
