This motel was the most expensive during our three weeks trip around Florida and it was certainly not the best. Friendly but nothing extra. The rooms are OK but not more. The location is just beside the highway and you have to use your car to reach a beach or a seaside restaurant.

We were able to stay here for one night when our camping trip ran into some rough weather. We just stopped and were happy they had a room at a reasonable price. The room is not the Hyatt...THANKFULLY! We loved the charming Florida decor. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The staff is super friendly and before we could even... More

The chain hotels are very expensive this time of year so we opted for this little place, it had good reviews and was 1/2 the price of the chain brands. Check in was easy. We got room 4, with one queen bed. The room had everything you needed, microwave, mini fridge, hair dryer, table, chairs. The only issue we had... More

We stayed for a week in January 2016. I had signed up for the Key West Half Marathon and we did not want to pay Key West prices to vacation for my race. This fit the bill! We were in room #24 with a king bed which was kept extremely clean by housekeeping. It's next to the laundry room but... More

The motel room had two beds. The room was super clean and clean smelling which is usually hard to come by. There were multiple pillows and towels available. The motel had a pool available. The room cost $133.88.

We called to tell them we were arriving after 10:00 p.m. and they told us they'd already put our room's lights on for us. We arrived to a friendly welcome at the desk and drove our car around the corner to find our outside light on, just as promised. Our room was spacious. We had 2 beds plus a rollaway... More

We chose to stay in Marathon on our trip to the Keys. The Sea Dell is in a great location if you want to visit Key West, but not pay the high prices. Sea Dell is also convenient to restaurants and shopping. We stayed in an "efficiency"- or as they call it, a duplex. The duplex is not part of... More

Nice quiet little motel. Found on Tripadvisor and it was a good find. Be tolerant of iguanas...they like it here in the sun and pool. Nice location and you can walk for miles. Very convenient. Good value and lovely people. They checked us in early when we arrived ahead of regular checkin and gave us lots of tips on areas... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Sea Dell and both times we have had nothing but a great experience. It is clean and comfortable and the staff is very nice and accommodating. The motel offers a more affordable place to stay not to far from Key West.

Classic Florida motel- but this one was clean and quaint. My only complaint was that our room (King room #24) did not have a window, except for in the bathroom and a small one on the door! But it also was at the furthest end of the main building so farther away from the road so that was nice. BUT... More
