The staff was not courteous or knowledgeable. They gave the least amount of info possible and could not recommend or direct to local attractions. In the room the sink, toilet, and shower did not drain properly, the door squeaked, and a drawer handle fell off. The TV in the workout room did not provide more than one channel and there... More

We've stayed at this property many times while going to key west. Property is clean and staff is great. Hotel is a little noisy and there's been times when we've woken up in the middle of the night because someone's stomping their feet while walking in the hallways, but overall it's a good hotel. Breakfast is good but being there... More

Typical Holiday Inn Express, good location on Route 1 halfway between Key Largo and Key West. Clean, lots of parking. As good a place as there is to stay in Marathon for a mid range hotel. God place to stop on the way to Key West and pay roughly half what it would cost to stay the night in Key... More

My family and I stayed here in July. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly and the free breakfast was great. The pool was a great plus, especially with little ones! My husband loves to reef fish and deep sea fish so this is the perfect spot, close to his favorite Marina. There is also a great restaurant called Tarpon... More

This place is great!!! They have an awesome staff and a wonderful place right on the water. There is even a convenient boat/kayak/paddle board business in the back! Side note: while I recommend that particular business I would not recommend Captain Hook's boat rental of who they referred us to but I digress and will review them separately. Anyhow, breakfast...

very clean basic rooms and really friendly staff. They really give you the southern warmth from the housekeeping crew to the reception they really go out of their way to make sure you have a nice stay. Breakfast can get busy and is basic but enough. We loved the pancake machine

The rooms were nice. The staff was nice. The pool was nice, but a bit small for the number of guests. They kept breakfast stocked each day. You could tell the building was older as the floors were noist and I could hear other guests' TVs. The restaurant next door, Tarpon Grill, was pretty good, though expensive. Try to hit... More

Stayed for 2 nights on Rewards Points w/ family. Typical HI Express w/ no frills and clean rooms. Walls were thin and noise from floor above could be heard often. Disappointed as Platinum Member that I was not able to get a 3rd floor room. Breakfast was crazy busy each day but expected with full hotel. Elevator was always slow.... More

we came from England for two weeks and wanted the middle Key sfor easy access to all places. We chose well. Stayed in A King suite. Spacious clean and cool. The breakfast is a great way to start the day - and NEVER too busy. Even so, you are allowed to take food out to eat in rooms or by... More

We have now stayed here twice. Can't beat free breakfast - not just continental, cooked items as well - egg / cheese, sausage gravy, biscuits, fruit, cereal, yogurt, etc... Place is not huge - just three floors, pool is nice, and there is a restaurant out behind - good for drinks, did not eat there. Located on canal and you... More
