This is not a fancy place to stay or a resort. The attached restaurant is mediocre at best. The rooms are decent sized and in excellent condition. Very clean and the staff works to please. The complimentary breakfast is nice. There is a variety of breads, cereals, ochre de inlets, pancakes, fresh fruit, etc. coffee is available all day and... More

Very nice people and a great location at the marina in Marathon. The room was very clean and had a very nice view of the marina. Overall well priced for the Keys. If we were back in Marathon we would come back.

We stopped over here for two days on our way to Key West. The hotel in conveniently located, near the water, and close to shops, restaurants, and attractions. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The room are very clean and well appointed. There is a nice restaurant/bar located right behind the hotel.

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel for a weekend visit to the keys. I can't believe we paid 200.00 per night. Have booked a 3 day stay at another location in May last year in the Orlando Springs location at 60% less. Since The hubby paid for it, i kept quite. We had a room with a window... More

Great location with great views and lots of seabirds. Ideal spot to meet my client for a prearranged offshore fishing trip. Really nice bar area with good selection of beers and well priced bar snacks plus a full menu if required! Will definitely stay again on my next trip!

This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on our trip to the Florida Keys. I expected better. We could hear the conversation in the room next door. And the snoring all night, and the TV at 5:30 am. I thought hot breakfast choices were poor, the same things were served two days running. I think the parking lot... More

We were visiting Key West but wanted a central location to view the other Keys as well. Rooms were very clean; the staff was welcoming; breakfasts were delicious. We visited the Aquarium; this was a hands on experience! We ate at the island Restaurant across the street from our hotel. The food was delicious!
