We stayed a week, we were on ground floor and near exit, and I never heard noise. The pool was great and seeing iguanas and lizards around was very amusing! We were in a king suite and yes the beds are hard...so if you like more comfort it is an issue. We had issues with the free breakfast, not because... More

The Keys are generally expensive, I find, and this hotel was no exception. But given the comparison of pricing, you get a lot at this hotel. First, I must comment that the staff was wonderful...very friendly and handled every request with speed and care. The room was a typical Holiday Inn room with thin carpeting but it was fine and...

Decided to stay here due to the extremely high hotel prices in key west. Marathon is run down. Not somewhere you want to be on vacation. I would spend the extra money next time to be in key west or big pine key. Big pine key is nice too. The bed was SO hard I woke up several times during... More

Nice place to stay midway down the Keys. Breakfast included, clean rooms, friendly staff. Very nice restaurant and bar directly behind hotel and right on the water. Lovely clean pool overlooking the water, with plenty of comfortable chaises.

It's a clean place, but that's all I can say for it. We booked a king bed but at check-in they acted like that was out of the question, we were ridiculous for suggesting it, and gave us a standard double room without so much as an apology. We arrived exactly at 3 (their check-in time) and were told the... More

The rooms were incredibly clean, it is in a great location. Our room overlooked the pool. , small fridge, microwave, a place to sit on the couch and... More

Very clean, friendly staff, beautiful view of pool and inlet. Room was fairly quiet, most noise came from room doors slamming. The complimentary breakfast was good, and although fairly crowded, stayed fully stocked. A nice touch was the additional guest services desk with suggestions for things to do in the area. The attendant gave us a great recommendation for beaches... More

This was our second visit to this property. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a suite with another couple and the room was clean and well appointed. The location is central to the Keys and its a great spot to stay on the way out. The hotel has an excellent selection at breakfast and it was a... More
