Stayed for a week in early April on a visit from the UK, in room 13 - which was quiet, clean and comfortable, with two double beds ( fabulous mattresses!), a full sized fridge /freezer, microwave and coffee maker a/c unit (noisey) and fans, with a small ensuite washroom (shower, WC and sink). There are plenty of drawer units, a walk in cupboard, sofa and small table and chairs
The grounds are very prettily landscaped, with palm trees and flower borders, a large (clean) pool and big hot tub, decking with hammocks and plentiful chairs and shade areas, along with a barbecue.
There is a clean, coarse sand 'beach' area, boat launch ramp, jetty and boat moorings ( tricky, shallow, access at low water) overlooking the ocean and sufficient (but tight) parking for guests.
The owners,Bob and Kathy, were very friendly and most helpful - and are clearly concerned to maintain the well deserved reputation reflected in other reviews on this site.
This is not a motel for those looking for modern, five star luxury (or averse to dogs!) - but is certainly a clean, comfortable, characterful, friendly haven - with a full range of restaurants/ fast food outlets, marina and local shops very close by. We will be back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An awesome, intimate escape right in the center of the Keys. All of our rooms have recently been refreshed from top to bottom. For a pet & people friendly tropical retreat...This is the spot. This is the kind of place Jimmy Buffett sings about. We are very Keysee and very clean! A sparkling pool and hot-tub with a view of the beach, boat launch and pier, await you. Our rooms and efficiencies can accomodate from 1 to 6 people very comfortably. ... more less
