We stayed here one night while exploring the keys and had a great time. The hotel is very old and our room was very small. That said, it was very clean and the towels and bedding were spotless. The bed was very comfortable. The front desk was friendly and provided us with a list of things to do and recommended... More

The garden view room had to be the smallest room I have ever stay in. And the smell in the room became unbearable. And it wasn't the smell from the beach, which had its own aroma. Coupled with being charged twice for the room which I even questioned upon checking in, made this a very forgettable stay.

We really don't want to share this review because we want to keep this great place all to ourselves! We stayed in the upstairs room and it was very big and of course the view was incredible! The place is right on the beach and it feels like you're all alone when you're on the beach. The place was clean,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while in Marathon Florida. Front desk was pleasant, helpful and had information about the area. Room was very small #10A (studio, which is what I paid for) but they did have apartment style rooms for more money. Beach needed a bit of TLC (trash during low tide) and the water is not very inviting for... More

We stayed in room #8 on the second floor. It was a clean room with tile flooring and white bedding that looked pristine. We had two queen size beds and each had six fluffy newer-looking pillows. The room could use an update as the décor was older and lacking and the bath was small with old tiling. Take your own... More

This hotel is sweet and serene. Not fancy but a good deal for the price. It was clean and they were super accommodating if my dog. I had to leave early from my stay when I got a call about a family emergency. The owner was very kind and understanding. I was refunded my money even though I left at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night during a trip through the keys, mainly to paddle board in different areas. We live in Florida and were not interested in anything overly touristy, so we opted for old Keys hotels along our way. We both agree this was the highlight hotel of our trip (esp since we ended up...

We were in room #1. It was clean: sheets, floor, kitchen, bathroom. The kitchen was not well equipped but we didn't want to cook. The bathroom was clean but didn't have enough towels or a hair dryer. The views and grounds were beautiful but the fermenting seagrass smells bad at low tide. You can't swim here but we weren't planning... More
