Hippy Heaven  We had a great stay with Mike, Steph, and Bobby (the lion fish). Very welcoming hosts, family friendly, quintessential keys style, clean, beautiful quiet grounds, well supplied room had everything we needed, very relaxing.  Disclaimer, if you are looking for an "American Style", wonderbread, cookie cutter, sterile hotel, this is not the place for you. Move on to... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Gulf View for 10 days on business in Sept.2014. Being on the road 40 weeks out of the year it was nice to get out of the cookie cutter box chain hotels. I enjoyed having my own patio and my own BBQ. My room was clean with a nice modern bathroom and... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We planned to stay here based on reviews and it was as expected. The grounds were beautiful, quaint and quiet. We had an excellent view outside of our room! The staff was friendly and the room was clean and well equipped for our needs during the week. Each room has a grill outside so... More

We chose Gulfview based on tripadvisor reviews, but I cannot understand the overall rating unless it's all relative to other hotels in Marathon and those are really bad. I will say that the grounds are very nice and well-kept (I would rate those a 4). And it's nice to have coffee ready each morning. But the room(ours was 11) was... More

When I planned our trip to the keys, we decided on Marathon and chose the gulf view in large part after reading al of the reviews. I felt like I knew what to expect and indeed, most of the reviews reflect what you get. A reasonably priced, old fashioned keys hotel with a great sunset view, on the water. It... More

This was perfect for our needs: relaxing weekend. Four females stayed for the weekend. The room was OK for 2 people, not a lot of storage but adequate for the weekend. It has a microwave and mini fridge and other kitchen items. It was nice to have your own deck area with table and chairs, rooms 20 and 21. We... More

My husband and I live and work in Key Largo and couldn't go far for our 20th anniversary so we decided to spend a few days in Marathon. I went to Trip Advisor and found this place to be the one for us. It was just what we needed. The pool was wonderful and the views were excellant. The white... More

Stayed here four nights in August with my parents and three kids. We both had one bedroom apartments which were more than adequate for our needs. The place is quite old fashioned but I wanted a traditional, laid back Keys experience, not some gleaming, impersonal resort. The grounds were just beautiful. Every night we would sit on sunloungers to watch... More

To be extremely critical...The room (#11) was clean, but not glistening. The grill only worked on one side. The AC was loud, and I was told that this was a good thing, as it drowned out my snoring. You have read all the positive reviews and they are true. If you can live with the above, as I did, you... More
