Pros: Quiet. Cons: The beach and paths are rough coral not sand. This is a mixed blessing. No sand into the vehicles or rooms. Location: Mid-way to Key West, it is a good place to stop. We heard the snorkelling in the area was good. This small older hotel is right on the beach. Although small, our room had all... More

Reasonably priced. Located Between Marathon and Duck Key. Dated, rooms are old, not exceptionally clean. We stayed two nights and did not see housekeeping . No restaurant or Bar within walking distance. It is priced fairly but is not a place I would likely stay at again.

We stayed in the quaint seashell inn just one night. Some reviews are not great but we took a chance and loved it. The room is tidy and pleasant. The view and small beach area are wonderful. Aside from some slight highway noise this place is quite. The beds comfortable and clean. The shower and bathroom are new renovation we... More

Just awful. Do not stay here unless you are desperate. Shabby is generous. There is NO ic; we had to drive almost 5 miles to buy ice. Never before have I stayed at a hotel that did not have ice for the guests.You would not believe the door on the room -- probably from the 1930s with glass -- wish... More

The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful at suggesting where to go and eat. The hotel was basic, but very, very, clean! That is a big plus for me. We enjoyed our stay at this resort and will come back again in the furture.

The hotel was nice. It was a good location for going to Bahia Honda National Park. The room was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Nice location for watching the sunrise. The beach was a little smelly (seaweed) and was a little dirty. The pool was small but in good order.

The seaweed that collected in front did not flush out with the tide, so limited what you wanted to do out of doors. Clean room. Skimped on towels. Management was gone at 6:30 pm returning in the morning. Loud air conditioning cycled every 5 – 10 minutes challenging sleep.

We stayed for two nights, the rooms are very simple but you don't go to the keys to hang out in your rooms. There was a small kitchenette with a small stove/oven and some basic cooking necessities. There is a lovely little beach which is quiet and private. The hotel rents kayaks and is a short drive from the main... More

We've stayed at this resort multiple times in the last few years. The staff is friendly, the grounds were okay before, but now are nice. The rooms are being renovated, and a small pool has been added. The beach could use a tad br of clean up, there really isn't a beach swimming area here. But I will always choose... More

It's not much, but it's everything you need. Pool and pool furniture are very nice. And I'm picky. Door to our room open right to the water. On our way back now for our second trip. We're staying in the queen suite this time - last time was king suite. Was great.
