I stayed here for 2 nights recently on a trip to Key West with a friend. Everything we needed. Enjoyed the pool (cooled down). Staff helpful. Wifi good and included, unlike some of the larger chain hotels which charge hugely for the privilege.

We stayed at the Sea Dell for three nights while visiting family in Marathon. Our room was very large and clean with two queen sized beds, table and chairs, refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave, a huge shower and a separate toilet and sink area. The staff was great and very accommodating. Ryan answered all our questions when we arrived. The... More

We stayed one night while in Marathon, and did not spend a lot of time here (our daughter did enjoy the pool). The room was a good value, larger than some in the area, quite clean. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Good location, excellent value for money, good for a two day stay to visit Bahia Honda, Dolphin center and enjoy wonderful Sombrero beach. A good base for venturing along the keys, god pool next time I'd rather take a larger room with veranda

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 Rooms had the old keys flair without seeming outdated....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
