“Convenient for diving”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend following a business trip in Miami because I wanted to do some scuba diving. The hotel was nice, on par with a Best Western or similar budget hotel. The room was clean but the washroom and shower was in need of some repairs to the tile and grouting, etc. It was fine for me for what I wanted (a weekend by myself to do some scuba diving). I would not stay here for a week's vacation and would not consider this the ideal hotel for a romantic get away. The Dive shop / boat was in very, very easy walking distance so this made for an easy weekend.

Stayed January 2013, traveled solo

Booked this hotel as a stop over for 1 night while travelling further down to the keys, great find, only a couple of hundred yards from the the busy US1 highway, but as quiet as anywhere we have stayed, Firstly this is a very relaxed place, check out is 12.30, you can bring in your own food and drink in, sit on the terrace overlooking the marina and boats and relax, the room (103) was large, clean and had everything we needed if not a little dated, but that just added to the appeal of the place, outside area with chairs and a tv with over 60 english speaking channels, (mainly adverts as us tv seems to be!). No restaurant or bar was open during our stay and breakfast was a help yourself to bangle and coffee affair, but there are dozens of good eating places within half a mile, try The Pilot House just around the corner on Atlantic Drive again with a great waterside view, lively entertainment and fresh fish dishes that melt in your mouth.
Back at the hotel, the pool area is good, clean and empty all the time we were there, just 2 or 3 people seemed to bother using the big pool or hot tub, which was great for us, the perfect start to a relaxing week in the Keys!

I stayed here with my Grandson and his friend. They are both 8 yrs old. We have a good time. Pool is great staff is friendly. In the afternoon they make popcorn in the office. Room was clean! Did not take part in the breakfast so no comment on that. Safe quiet clean and close to lots of things. What more can you ask for?

Booked a while ago for one night. Then read some reviews and got nervous. But when we checked in we were pleasantly surprised. Location is just off US1 and right on the canal so there is great boat scenery. Front desk staff were quick to acknowledge us and checked us in early-offered us our choice of rooms. Also had bags of popcorn which was a neat touch. Room was spacious, clean and well appointed-fridge, coffee etc. Pool area was clean and they had good quality lounge chairs. Continental breakfast was also included. No hesitation is staying here again. I think sometimes people are expecting a brand new hotel and want the Waldorf Astoria at a Motel 6 price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the marina side, so you have a view of the yachts coming and going

great marina location and within walking distance of dining and shopping for essentials. The hotel rooms were clean but do lack a spot for dive equipment to hang and dry. All in all a nice hotel with a great view and location.

We were looking for a low-key, inexpensive hotel for a weekend dive trip. The marina del ray was beyond all expectations! A very reasonable rate for three adults, on a beautiful marina, with a bar/restaurant next door (live music!), a sparkling pool and spa, and popcorn every evening. Continental breakfast included. Far enough from the highway to feel sheltered and quiet, but close enough to be headed out to dive in three minutes.

Nicely tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, this hotel is situated right on the waterfront. Our room on the second floor was quite clean and adequate. This place afforded an easy day excursion to Key West which was only a two hour drive. The restaurant located next to the property was closed, however there are several of them within easy reach. Brown Pelicans reside on the marina and offer some good photo-ops. The John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is about a mile away.
