This was a good base for our adventure in the keys. We didn't spend much time here, slept here, and one evening in the pool. Everything was as good or better than we could have asked for. Service was friendly and laid back. It was quiet despite being on the highway. Rooms had the old keys flair without seeming outdated.... More

This took you back in time to the early 50's or 60's. I say this in a very nice way. Rooms are very clean, maintained very well. Excellent wifi, you typically park in front of your room. Very colorful, has the island theme. The on line pics are dead on. The staff is great, will offer tips on whatever is... More

Hotels on Key West are pretty expensive, so we were looking for a somewhat cheaper place somewhere else. Finally we made our decision and chose the Sea Dell Motel. It's perfectly located in the middle of the Florida Keys, which makes it a good base to explore them. Room was decent and clean, staff was very nice.

Stayed here on our road trip down to the keys as a way of escaping Orlando for a few days. Staff were friendly and efficient, room and amenities were clean and comfortable. Nice pool that was much appreciated after the long drive. Good location - about 1 hour from Key West, 5 mins from 7 mile bridge, supermarket and ice... More

From start to finish my stay here was awesome. My boyfriend and I fell in love with the place once we heard over the phone how patient and helpful Ryan (works the front desk) was. Very clean room, affordable, lots of space, and has a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker in each room. The pool has a heater and outside... More

We stayed at Sea Dell on our first visit to Marathon. I could not have been happier with a hotel! It was comfortable, convenient and very clean. I am extremely particular when it comes to hotels and motels and I was so pleasantly surprised when we arrived! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was just adorable! Decorated in... More

The room was beautiful and clean and completely soundproof which was great seeing as right on... More

Overall, this place was really quaint and comfortable enough, but don't expect anything fancy. Reminded me of the old-school motels where we used to stay with my grandparents. Loved the tropical colors of the buildings and the landscaping all in bloom. Rooms were clean, but somewhat utilitarian. We appreciated the cabinet space with the small fridge. It's directly on the... More

The Sea Dell motel is nothing to look at, and in fact may inspire you to drive on by; that would be a mistake. The motel offers you a clean, quiet, convenient, and affordable place to stay in the Keys. If you are staying in Marathon, it is centrally located to all the city has to offer, and is very... More
