I wanted a stay in the keys, but Ididn't want the noise and other stuff of Key West (except for a day trip), nor the fishing focus of Islamorada, or the "too close to Miami" feel you can sometimes get on Largo (although I found a great breakfast place there on this trip). I wanted the feel of a beach... More

This motel needs drastics updates. The rooms haven't been maintain for years. Walls and furniture need painting. Electric outlets didn't work. The kitchen was missing the bare essentials for cooking. The bathroom had mold and rust. If you're looking for a place to stay the night it's okay but not for a vacation. The location is a gem and it's... More

I think the name 'resort' may be a little misleading for this property. It was a budget choice for me while booking lodgings for my road trip, however I did think it was a little on the small and minimal side in terms of resorts. Based on the website description, I was under the impression that our room would come... More

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
