As you would expect with Holiday Inn, room was clean and spacious. Pool lovely, plenty of sun beds. Tarpon Creek restaurant next door and over looking the sea as a bonus. Good location in the centre of The Keys.

My family and I had a great time in the Florida keys! The Holiday Inn was very clean and friendly. The hotel was fully booked when we stayed on 6/29/15, other than some light noise above us (we stayed in room 130, first floor) there was nothing bad to report. The hotel restaurant was very accommodating to our family and... More

The hotel room was beautiful. everything was in good condition. The bathroom was very nice and clean. The hallway was clean.there is plenty to do on the outside like renting kayaks and canoes and paddle boards. The pool area was a little crowded but too quiet i would have preferred some island music or something. the yards and the parking... More

As far as I am concerned, and my opinion only, this is only one of two newer, decent hotels in Marathon FL on US 1. I stayed there in June of 2015. It was clean and fairly new. The hotel was extremely busy with many tourist and out of country visitors. The hotel was somewhat noisy though as it was... More

Everyone at the hotel was wonderful and very helpful. It wasn't until I met the manager Bonnie over at captain hooks which made me decide to stay somewhere else. I was never informed that my snorkeling trip I booked the day before was cancelled for this site and was over at the main location. One of the guys for kayaking... More

Dear Recent Guest, WE would like to apologize for the unfortunate experience in our Marina! Upon receiving your review, we realized that miscommunication about the location of where the guests would board the snorkel boat turned in to a huge problem. We are looking into this, and trying to rectify how this important detail is not miscommunicated, and mostly, that... More

This was our first stay at this motel which has been completely redone since being damaged in a hurricane. It still had that new hotel smell in places. Seemed a bit expensive to us, at almost $200, but not being from FL, this may not be accurate. It was a good, relaxing evening, comfortable room and bed, and there was... More

We planned to stay 3 nights during a recent family vacation to the keys. We'd previously stayed at this Holiday Inn and it was good. I don't know what happened, but we will never stay there again. When we checked in, we asked for a quiet area. We were put on the 3rd floor, toward the back of the hotel.... More

A great stay in a great hotel. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. Free breakfast was great for the price. Only complaints would be iffy WiFi on third floor and thin walls. Otherwise this was a great hotel. I'd definitely stay again if we ever come back and stay in Marathon. Lots of restaurants, beaches, snorkeling, etc nearby.

For a reputable chain we were very surprised at the level of noise that transferred from room to room and hallways to the rooms. we could hear conversations in the next room and could. tell which t.v. channel they had on. if you want any chance of quiet request a 3rd floor room away from elevator and vending...we where in...
