Only just a three - we read other reviews and breathed a sigh of relief when we were allocated a fourth floor room on the marina side that had been repainted. Nevertheless the furniture was tired and the lack of care kept bobbing up - long black hairs in the supposedly laundered towels, not a single glass to drink wine... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way down to Key West. We were just looking for a place to spend the night, and this fit the bill. I had called earlier in the day to say we would be arriving late, and the person on the phone said she would be on call that evening and would text... More

From the desk, this hotel looked okay. But when we got to our rooms, we were very disappointed. We were two couples. Our room had been renovated, but in spite of that, there were issues. There are no telephones in the rooms at all. The mattress badly needed to be replaced. There was inadequate lighting in the room, which had... More

This is the 2nd year I've ran the 7 Mile Bridge Run. I've stayed at Sombrero Resort each time. It's an older property, but well maintained. It is a great value for being in the heart of the Keys. If you're looking for a conveniently located property in Marathon, please check out this resort. The staff are very helpful too!

Very affordable and clean. Staff was excellent and good location. 50 miles to key west so we could avoid over priced places in key west. Enjoyed biking across bridge on south end of Marathon. Had room with 2 queens and kitchen on water. First come first served on room choices.

This place is a dump. I've traveled extensively all over the world and this place is by far,the worst hotel room, ever. My boyfriend and I paid an additional charge of $20.00 a night for a harbor view. The back door faced a canal and our balcony faced the dingy parking lot. The carpet and furniture was so dirty that... More

We book this hotels through booking.com since there were eight of us, we requested a 2 weekend villa which, we were told each villa had two room with a shared bathroom and kitchenet. To our surprise once we got to the resort, we were given a room with two queen beds. The resorts divides the villas and rents them as... More

I have traveled throughout the united states for both buisness and pleasure and this place was by far the worst hotel I hav ever stayed in. The rooms were old and filthy. In one building the elevator did not work. In our first room the toilet was not attache to the floor.

BLUF - the place is hard to find, a GPS will give you the wrong location for the address. We planned on trip to Key West and halfway settled for The Sombrero Resort & Marina in Marathon. The price was high, during the time we were there - Late February through early March 2015. but we were very surprised (and... More
