We stayed at the Bonefish and liked it very much. I had been in touch with Mike via telephone calls before we got there, asking questions too the negative reviews I had read. He told me "it was not fancy but clean." When we arrived and checked out the room, we got what we paid for. We had 2 queen beds, a kitchen and a bathroom with full size tub/shower, and tile floor which we thought was a great idea! Everything was CLEAN and orderly. Outside we had a charcole grill and table with umbrella. We were right next to the road. The first night it was a bit of getting used too, for my husband but I had no problem. After that; it was great for both of us. It was not fancy but we were not looking to pay for a fancy place. We wanted to stay on a budget and "that we did. " With having the grill outside and the kitchen inside, we were able to Shop and make breakfast and dinner with no problem. Steaks, hamburger, and fresh cracked stone crab, were some of the meals. Oh, I can't forget the Key Lime pie! For lunch we packed sandwiches, chip and candy and soda in a sm cooler. Just perfect for our daily outings to the beach and the Key Deer reserve. Our healthy eating plan could wait until we got back to New York. (smile here) The first morning we headed to the back of the motel and watched the sunrise over the ocean. Just beautiful. It was so peaceful and we didn't have to dress in anything but casual the whole time we were there. We used their washer and dryer once, which is located just down the road at their Yellowtail resort. We sat on the beach while our cloths were washing and drying. We didn't use the pool but it would have been perfect in the summertime to take a dip and cool off. We were very close to two wonderful beaches just a few miles down the road. Sombrero beach, in the heart of Marathon and Bahia Honda just a few miles more down the road from there. Their, we spent 4 1/2 days of our 7. We went to Key West twice, once to drive through it and the second time to walk around and enjoy the fun atmosphere for most of the day. We didn't head north of Marathon that whole week; as we had more than enough to do for the week. We will defiantly stay at Bonefish the next time we go to the Keys. It is in a perfect spot for exploring the keys and the Beaches are some of the best in that area. We loved our house keeper and the staff at the front desk. They were ready and able to help us out "as best as they could." They even have books and movies to borrow. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.
