“The place is Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

First off you need to know that this is Not a 5 star motel. BUT, it is a nice! Lets talk first that they are improving it as we speak. I was not sure when I made the reservation to stay a night. But after the night's stay we wanted to come back. As a matter of fact I cancelled out a night at another hotel and stayed here instead the next couple of days. The room is clean and with the white ceramic tile on the floor it has a little echo to it. The beds were very nice and comfy. The bathroom is nice and clean with all tile.. I personally loved the shower..Now a great plus is you can walk out the back side of the room onto a concrete slab the extends the length of the motel. There is a water way there. If you had a boat you could tie it up there. But the greatest thing was I sat out there at night and you talk about peaceful...I sat out there of hours and didn't hear a sound except of the water moving slowly. As a matter of fact it was very quite there. Loved it!
Would I go back? You betcha! I give it a thumbs up!.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 10. It's a little bigger then most..

We arrived late at night after the office was closed, they had placed a lockbox on our room door and a note on the front door to call them. The owner/manager came down to check on us and make sure we arrived and settled in alright. The establishment was run down and the new owners are working to renovate the entire place--they are certainly doing an amazing job. The view from the back of the creek is phenomenal at night with the lights on the water. Manatees are abundant in the water directly behind the hotel. Would highly recommend this place to anyone passing through the area.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

My family and I stayed a couple of nights. We visit the Keys quite often and this is one of the nicest and cleanest hotels that we have ever stayed in. It is comfortably equipped for a quick one-night stop or even a longer stay vacay. The room we had included a microwave and a nicely sized fridge/freezer combo and the shower was even big enough for the whole family with plenty of hot water. Road noise at night (or even early morning) was never an issue as all we heard while we drifted off to sleep was the cooling hum of the AC. (I actually thought it was a rather quiet location.) There is a full-service marina right across the street, which is where we launched our boat from so that was quite convenient. The staff at the hotel was very nice and friendly and always provided service with a smile. My daughter loved the pool area, which is secluded and adorned with a rock waterfall. It was definitely worth every penny and we would not hesitate staying there again in the future, especially considering that most hotels we have stayed in throughout the Keys barely match up. Thanks guys! We'll be back!

We picked this place because it was cheap and the online photos looked decent. The front desk clerk was very nice. The room was as expected as well as the bathroom, but it was way too noisy since it's right next to the highway, so we ended up having to buy earplugs for our second night's stay. I'll spend a little more next time and find a place away from the highway.

Thank you for this review! We wanted to let you know that following your advice we have added a "wall" of landscaping in front of all our rooms, plus we have a new property which is further away from the highway and with quiet balconies on the canal. Hope you decide to visit us again and experience all our changes.

This was a nice & cozy place to stay for a couple nights. Front desk service is great. Dive shop next door was a plus.Neat little cafe next door for lunch. Tiled shower made rinsing off dive gear a breeze. Canal view right outside door was very relaxing.

We stayed two nights while on a trip to pick up a boat , only reason we picked it was it was close to where we were doing buisness .We wanted to pay cash but they insisted on charging full amount to a credit card . The room itself was clean but evrything is just a bit shoddy door locks damaged fridge looks like it came from a thrift shop paintings look like a quick job by the owners child .
No breakfast avaible within walking distance early in the morning .A clean place to sleep not much else .

Thank you for your review! We sure appreciate our customers input which helps us offer a better service all the time. Yes, we only accept Credit Cards and we do have a set rate for the night. You can call and ask for weekly and seasonal discounts though. Also, I am sure you stayed in one of the rooms that was not completely renovated. As of today we have finished with all the renovation and every room has been upgraded with new furniture and appliances, fresh paint and remodeled bathrooms. We certainly are a budget friendly and clean small resort right on a beautiful canal. Hope you give us another opportunity to have you as our guest.
