The service is 5-star. The owner and housekeeper are SO friendly. The accommodations get 4 stars. The room was clean and comfortable, and looked really island-y. The mattress is not top-quality but was comfortable enough for me in spite of back issues. The pillows are great. The AC may not get cold enough for those who like their room sub-70... More

I was so pleased to have discovered this lovely hotel in Marathon. The property is charming, and my room was very clean and comfortable. The shower has wonderful water pressure, perhaps the best of any hotel I've ever experienced. There was even a little seating area outside of my room where I could sit in the evening. The trees on...

When we arrived I was told that our unit was around the corner and down the street. It was not connected to the main hotel, so I can't speak about the main hotel. We ventured down the street just about to the end. Most homes along the way were private homes. Where the street ended there was a lovely view... More

Great motel and the staff is wonderful. Close to everything. Rooms are charming and nicely decorated. The beds are comfy and the water pressure is great in the showers. Will definitely be staying here every time I visit the keys.

I REALLY enjoyed this place. It has a tropical, local and laid-back feel that only enhanced our first-time visit to the Keys. It made me nostalgic about an apartment I use to live in, older but well-maintained and a great managing staff. Felt like a piece of home. The location is very convenient to stores, public library, eateries, etc. We... More

Thank you for your kind review. We are so sorry that your internet experience was less than perfect - in fact, if you visit www.hotelwifitest.com, which rates speed of internet in hotel properties, you will see that ours is the fastest in the Keys! However, this month Comcast has had two outages in Marathon, which we cannot control and one... More

Front desk very nice, they only had double beds, they told us there were two more motels next to them that might have some and could be cheaper but we decided to stayed because they were very nice. The rooms are comfy, clean and simple. We would stay a second time here.👍🏼

Booked room here as a overnight stay on the way to keys west. As described all fellow travelers this is the best value for the money. Hotel staff is excellent. Rooms are well decorated, and with all the amenities. Separate living area, microwave, fridge, small kitchenette, living area has its own flat screen Tv and couch. If I ever come... More

The traveller photos are pretty accurate. Obviously it's dated but that is what it is going for. I disagree about the room size; I think they're were pretty spacious. Comfortable beds. However, our bathroom ceiling had a significant leak. Also, they could do with a safe in the room since the rooms don't feel that secure anyway (didn't actually have... More

Weekly stay for work and this place has everything I need. Quiet, clean room, good water pressure in the shower and they even let me park my truck with a 6x10 trailer at the entrance near the office. Wifi works, pool looks nice and clean but I rarely make it to the pool when I'm on the road. Fridge, microwave... More

Went to this motel without a reservation, got a good room for $119 and when they say the wifi is fastest in rhe Keys I concur. Dealt with Sue and she was a pleasure and extremely nice - frankly this is one of the nicest staff I have dealt with. There is ice easily available short walk from any room,... More
