“Must have had to many drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

The people that wrote the last review must have had to many drinks the phone # is on the front door of the office there is night manager there to. The AC units work on remotes you must point them at the AC unit to turn them on next time try not to have to many drinks so you know whats going on instead of giving bad reviews

Room Tip: Try the loft room

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

My wife and I booked a trip on the Key West Express ferry, it leaves early so we wanted a room close by the marina. Tip Top was recommended by the KW express and we received a discount on the room. When we booked we were told that the office closes at 6PM so we arrived just in time for check in. The room was bare bones but clean. The hotel offered us a place to park our car free of charge, and the staff was very friendly. However after dinner and drinks down the street we got ready for bed and the AC didn't work. The office was closed and didn't open before we left so no help there, it was a long and sweaty night, with so much traffic noise we couldn't leave the window open. I understand it was off season and only two people in the Inn, but they should have at least left an emergency number for problems!

First time being in the area, I wanted to go to Sanibel Island but not pay the prices to stay there. Tip top hotel was a great location, small but did the job, it was clean. We only stayed for a night. Did a mini fishing on the dock late at night since they have a marina, even enjoy a little pool time. It's off a busy road but Didnt bother me at all when I was in the room. I would say they need wider curtains. But I would stay there again.

We had a room on the 1st floor next to the road. We experiented a lot of noise during both nights. Traffic, A/C, fan in bathroom, refrigetator roaring every 20 min. Besides that the room was ok. The staff was friendly and the motel had a small self service laundry.

Super clean suite at a great price! Bus to the beach across the road five day pass for $3.00. Very good bar food right next store and a gourmet grocery and wine shop within walking distance. Great sea food less than a mile away
Well equipped kitchen with full size frig. Small tables on the balcony to enjoy morning coffee or night time wine. Staff is friendly and helpful, but only on site until 8 pm.
Cons no beach chairs or beach towels

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor closer to the marina than the highway on the office side.

We reserved a boat for july 2nd but the weather was terrible. We called that morning to reschedule and the manger was very understanding and willing to work with us to reschedule (at no cost) We ended up rescheduling for the 4th. When we arrived i remembered this place from years past as Ashely Oaks.. let me tell you there is NOTHING that resembles that place. Everything is clean, pool looks great, outside is spotless. Back to the rental. The boat is exactly what i expected out of a rental boat.. we did have a mechanical issue, however the boat idled and ran fine so we did not call or bring it back, and we did not ask for any refund. basically it would not get on plane, but worked just fine for trolling the back bay. On a side note, they tell you that it is $5.00 a gallon if you fill up at their dock, and they even recommend several other marinas to fill up at, but they don't tell you they charge you for the oil to mix in the gas. which was another $8.00.. again not a big deal but would have liked to know, and at 4.85 a gallon at other marinas $6.00(with oil) is not a bad deal to not have to deal with the gas traffic at another dock. Overall this was an enjoyable day, the family had fun and we returned safe. the staff is extremely friendly, accommodating and said they will have that boat looked at and fixed right away and i believe that they will.. The Tip Top Isle/ boat rentals is a nice little inn to anyone wanting to have a hassle free vacation.

My husband and I had the guest suite. It consisted of a living area, a small dining table, and a TV. We also had a very well equipped kitchen. There was a separate bedroom with a small air conditioner and a TV. Both beds were queen size. The rooms were very clean and spacious. We stayed there because we were scheduled to go on the Key West Express boat to travel to Key West the next morning and the boat dock was only about a mile and a half away from the motel. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. We were given extra pillows as my husband needed them for his back to help him sleep due to his condition. I just loved this place and will be going back again soon. I agree that there is some noise on San Carlos Blvd. but did not have any trouble sleeping. Very reasonably priced as well. Great restaurants nearby.
