I had the absolute pleasure of staying here for three nights with my husband. So nice to get away from the busy hotels. The view from the Bimini View Room was spectacular and we enjoyed the balcony thoroughly. The room was kept spotless and was incredibly comfortable. Marlene was very helpful and accommodating. She made our stay in Marco even... More

The innkeeper Marlene was gracious and attentive at our arrival. The room was small with what she described as "a European bathroom", which was actually a bathroom in a closet. The clear shower faces the room...not very good for modesty. There was a room key issue at the onset, which proved to be a bigger problem later. Since the new... More

I don't enjoy writing indifferent reviews but we were genuinely looking forward to this break, especially after reading so many positive reviews and speaking to the owner, and it really did prove more than a little hit and miss. We stayed in the somewhat optimistically named 'Dolphin View Room'. It's a lovely room with a pleasant shared terrace outside and... More

We stayed 4 nights here during a recent family vacation. The first day we arrived happened to be my son's birthday. Marlene went out of her way to get a birthday cake for him, along with a few small gifts. We were very impressed with her thoughtfulness and generosity. We stayed in the room on the main floor, off of... More

We were very fortunate to have found this property. We spend three days at this delightful inn. The hospitality was one of the best we ever encountered. Marlene went out of her way to be helpful and to find us what we were looking for in the area. The rooms were clean, atmosphere cozy with a beautiful view of the... More

My wife and I recently spend two days at this lovely property with a great view and pool. Marlene Church was a delightful host providing us with useful information and suggestions. The residence was immaculately kept and a restful place to hide from the frigid north. We would heartily recommend it for a several day stay

The room was okay but not anything extra ordinary, however the service was terrible for a B&B. Favoring guests over another blantenly and almost demanding cash with out the offer of a receipt?? Does the IRS go for this? Seriously would not recommend this to anyone, a B&B keeper should be welcoming and helpful. I've never felt so uncomfortable around... More

HHOMI, Owner at Hemingway House of Marco Island, responded to this review

TO Tripadviser LLC: To the "Never Again" reviewer of March 5 2015. I was shocked to see such a nasty review. I have never had someone write something so vindictive. My feelings were hurt because I like all of my guests. I appreciate that guests come to Marco and stay at Hemingway House. I had to take a foreign guest... More
