“happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We love the OV because of the atmosphere and the bartenders. We have known them around ten years and they are alot of fun and very hard workers. The food is very good as well. We take the grandchildren there as they can swim in the little pool. It is heated as well. Also there is a play area for the childeren and a small pier if you bring a boat and decided to have a sandwich and drink of choice.

Room Tip: Actually we have never stayed there, but the rooms are very "cute" and nice.

Just wanted to let everyone know what a nice experience we had at the Oceanview !!!! Gloria was our bartender and also served our food, which was great. What a great experience we had with her, she was so wonderful. I have never had someonw so attentive and helpful. We were so happy when we left there. The next time we come down to the keys i hope to see gloria again we even asked her what days she worked so we can see her when we come down next year !!!!!!!!!!

What a pleasant surprise. My husband and I have been coming to the keys for years, and we just discovered the Oceanview. The staff is very friendly, and the food is quite good. My husband loveed the burger; I myself favored the fish sandwich. But we both agree on steak night! The outside bar and patio have a nice view of the bay, and we have enjoyed many happy hours there this season.

Didnt stay at the hotel, but had lunch at the bar outside. Seems friendly enough, lot of local regulars. Waitress was not good, but I understand that Gloria is the star there, and wasn't here this day. Good burger and wing stop, keep your expectations in check.

We wanted to stop for the night in Islamorada on our way to Key West, this place was recommended by someone on one of the forums here. I called, talked to one of the (friendly) owners, and booked over the phone . . .$179 for a large room with tile floors, two beds, small table w/two chairs, microwave, minifridge, coffee maker, large TV, bath w/shower and extra towels, private patio outside w/large table and chair. They had a heated pool and a large outdoor patio off the bar. They also had a bunch of playground equipment for kids . . . and a pathway down to a pier in case you wanted to arrive in your boat!

Our room was very cute . . . it was done up in a beach motiff and everything was colorful and spotless. We were very surprised. There is only eight rooms here and we had #8, the farthest away from the bar area. We slept great, heard no bar noise, and only a faint highway noise.

Nice place to stay, we would return.

Sandy (in Denton)

Room Tip: Room 8 is quiet and farthest from bar.

Stopped here on the way down to Key West. Thursday was Steak night and one of the best NY strip(and cheapest !)steaks I had on my trip. Great Sports bar, if you enjoy watching on tv with a beer. Rooms were fine and although quite close to the road we had no noise at night. If I went back to the keys I would make certain i stopped here again .
