We spent 2 nights at this hotel We arrived ahead of the official check-in time. A very pleasant girl on reception called Nicole was very welcoming and checked to see if a room might be ready. There wasn't, and she informed us we could help ourselves to coffee whilst waiting. (We actually wanted to see a World Cup match which... More

We booked this hotel since it was less than hotels nearer Key West. Next time, I will opt for one of the smaller places that cater to the area. When I checked in, both the people at the front desk were short with me. Breakfast is a busy affair with a limited amount of seating. They also do not chill... More

Management and ownership well know of the noise problem between units and in the hallways.... yet they apply for 15-20 additional units. Seems with the pending Hyatt, Mariott product, the Sombraro golf hotel, the soon to be significantly remodeled Banana Bay to become the "B Escape & Marina Marathon Key, they would spend the money to fix the noise problems....

Dear Recent Guest, Thank you for your review. You are right about so many of the things you wrote! WE are very excited to be able to make plans for the future on the back part of our property. Everything is so preliminary, that I would not want to comment on it. We are also excited about our "sister" property,... More

Echoing the other reviews on here - This newer, typical Holiday Inn Express hotel. Very clean, nice staff, decent continental breakfast. Rooms were nice, clean, beds were comfortable (with two types of pillows - labeled "firm" and "soft" - I liked that!). Pool was clean, if a bit small, and there were plenty of lounge chairs and tables if you... More

This hotel is very nice except the walls are paper thin. Clean & comfortable. Many activities available on site such as snorkeling, jet skiing, sunset cruise, kayaking. Nice pool area and tiki restaurant/bar next door. Only an hour from Key West. I would stay here again.

Clean hotel with nice pool and breakfast. No complaints other than the noise. The walls and ceilings seem to be paper thin. I can hear someone in the next room snoring at night. I do not know how that person even slept with the kids in the rooms upstairs running and jumping around. Other guest including myself complaining at the... More

Dear BPapaMI, Thank you for sharing your experience online. We are very pleased to read that the cleanliness of the hotel, pool area, and complimentary breakfast were all to your liking. On the other hand, it seems that some challenges with the noise prevented you from fully enjoying your visit. We sincerely apologize for the shortcomings you have experienced. We... More

Stopped here after snorkeling at Pennekamp State Park. Great location. Beautiful property. Clean, comfortable room, great amenities, great value, and beautiful views. Would have loved to stay longer. Great restaurant out back with live music! Very nice staff.

We arrived here after refusing to stay in South River Suits a few miles back, and was put instantly at ease. Helpful check in staff directed us to our room, which was nice, with a fantastically comfortable bed and a TV too. Our view was dreadful but as we were staying for only one night we didn't mind. The one... More

The quality was good and it was pretty clean, our room was small but that is not their problem. We asked for 2 queens , but we got ONLY two. No sofa, we were hoping for that. Otherwise, it was very nice.

Still is very clean, still has helpful staff, still is a solid hotel in the middle of the Keys. This is a great location for day trips to Key West or Largo. It has a nice pool area. We have never stayed during the weekend so I can't attest to that crowd but during the week there seems to be... More
