Stayed here for a long weekend on a solo trip. Nice hotel, good location to explore the keys. Very helpful staff, I complained about a very noisy ac and immediately got another room. Tasty breakfast but could do with a little more variety and fresh items. Nice and relaxing pool near the water.

We stayed there for 2 days and they totally earned the Tripadvisor award. Nice and clean room, nice service and a simple but delicious breakfast. Do not expect a five star breakfast with everything but for this price it is absolutly adequat.

Clean hotel with nice rooms and a convenient location. Nice restaurant right behind the hotel. Good, free breakfast with a nice selection. My recommendation would be to stay on the top floor as it was loud coming from the floor above us.

Stayed 3 nights during Christmas 2013, excellent location on the Keys. The rooms are clean, breakfast a bit messy, but staff helpful. Tarpon Creek - the restaurant just behind the hotel is a must see. Very Caribieen style. Just a few minutes drive to Bahia Honda State Park, including a visit on the Old Seven Mile Bridge. Recommends for sunset.

This hotel is well-staffed, clean, comfortable. Just what you'd expect from a HIE. Breakfast coffee, eggs, sausage, English muffin was good. Also offered cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, muffins... Nice outdoor pool and at least two good restaurants adjacent to hotel. Be sure to visit Crane Point Nature Center, Sombrero Beach, and the Turtle Hospital...all within five miles of the hotel.

This hotel was perfect for us as most of the things we did were in the Marathon area. We did make a day trip to Key West, but we are glad we stayed here in Marathon instead. The hotel is very close to the Turtle Hospital, Aquarium Encounters, and the Dolphin Research Center. It was very clean inside and the... More

This is one of the more affordable motels in the keys. It is centrally located between Key Largo and Key West and either can be a good day trip. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very good. The room had a nice view of the water, but did have a somewhat musty odor, but not too... More

We stayed three nights while visiting the Keys. The front desk personnel when we checked in were warm and efficient. One of them enthusiastically recommended the restaurant behind the hotel, Tarpon Creek, and we tried it that evening. It was so good, with great food and service that we went back another night. The property is very clean and well... More
