We stayed here for 5 days/4 nights and no complaints. They offered on their own to upgrade our room when we checked in for no additional fees/money which was awesome! The boats they offer are perfect for the area and the staff is wonderful.

The place is great for a quiet getaway and the use of the small boat with a motor is a bonus. The octagon is away from everyone and suits four people very nicely. There are 2 bedrooms and a bath and a half. Kitchen, dining area and living room. I would recomment double beds in each bedroom and a more... More

I originally liked this because of the boat rental and free breakfast included in the price and I still do. The place was kept clean and I saw NO bugs. The employees were very accommodating. Their web site pictures must be out of date because nothing looked like them when we were there. The boat was about a 12' skiff... More

I love this place! We have been there twice in the last year, going there on a third trip! Staff is friendly and I love the pool and jacuzzi! The free boat rental is also awesome! Coffin's Patch is a great snorkeling spot!

I rented one of the 2 bedroom units and it was just the right size for 2 adults and 2 children. Having the kitchen was a big plus for making lunches for boating. Having a boat at our disposal anytime we wanted it was the best part of the stay and the best deal in the Keys. Not to mention... More

I have to say, we were very disappointed with our stay at Rainbow Bend. We knew that we were taking a bit of a chance, given the price/other reviews/terrible website, but we couldn't have known how much of a chance we were taking. The room was dirty, smelled "foul" (sorry, can't think of a better word to describe it), and... More

This "quaint old Florida inn" is a run down pit. The electricity in our room has gone out twice today. There are window unit ACs, torn outdoor carpet and limited hot water. The thin bed has a foam cushion thrown on top of it and old cheap sheets. The waiter at breakfast seemed to be nursing a hangover, very rude.

We came for the 7 mile bridge run. Now we're going back and planning to make it a regular stop. We had 2 rooms and 3 families. Some of the group ran the race, others fished and played near the shoreline. A small Boston Whaler comes as part of the room rate. We took 2 boats out fishing and to... More

We have coming here for several years now and enjoy it every time. Great location, friendly staff, and the use of boat (also have all your fishing and diving equipment) included in your stay! If you want to experience the Keys on the water you can't beat it.
