My brother and I, along with our two teenage daughters (age 18 & 19), stayed at the Royal Hawaiian Motel/Botel from June 9th-June 13th, 2010. We transported a 21 foot boat and planned to scuba dive, fish and relax. We were not disappointed.
This property is a classic older Florida beach style motel. It has a new interior and a brightly painted exterior. The rooms were spotless and well maintained. The exterior grounds, boat dock and pool were equally kept very clean and in great shape. The great thing about this facility is that you literally dock your boat 10 feet from your back door! This makes your trip so much easier. The dock fee is included in your room rate.
Nick and Jeanne, the resident managers, were absolutely fantastic. They were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about everything in the area. During our stay we needed to have a trailer tire repaired and Nick suggested a local business and even offered to help us take the tire! We used that business and they also quickly repaired the tire and charged a fair price. Nick and Jeanne really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and excellent hosts. Ours rooms were cleaned daily and were always fresh upon our return.
I would highly recommend the Royal Hawaiian to any visitor in the area. Thanks to Nick and Jeanne for making our annual dive/fishing vacation an excellent experience. I will definitely stay at the Royal Hawaiian on my next visit to the Florida Keys.
