Had a very quick one night stop here so can't comment on many of the facilities, but the room was clean, spacious and really quite nice. The pool area was small, but again pretty good. The breakfast was really disappointing though with minimal choice. And it's quite a trek down to watch the sunset etc. I think 3 stars or... More

Room was ok, typical motel room I guess. Old, used, worn-down interior. Didn't have a clean feel to it, but that might just be a motel thing. Beds were ok for a one night's sleep. Bathroom was ok. Wi-fi was very slow and lost signal multiple times, I believe once because the power was down for a while throughout the... More

Key West is a paradise! The Blue Marlin Motel is close to the south of the island in Old Town. It is well located on Simonton Street with plenty of parking. The motel has a central swimming pool on a raised deck with a covered area at one end. We were late arriving and were welcomed by a night manager... More

As a family with 2 adults and 2 fifteen year olds we truly enjoyed this motel. We had a larger sized renovated room with 2 queen beds. It had a microwave and small frig which were helpful with two snacking teens. The pool was GREAT! It was large and not overrun with people. The room and pool had a boutique... More

We had a great stay at the Blue Marlin Motel! Very family oriented. Good continental breakfast. Very clean! Employees are very polite and helpful. Far better price than fancy chains for just needing a place to sleep. One block off Duval St. I would recommend this motel anytime. Close to "Most Southern Point" attraction!

We found the staff friendly. Accommodated for early check in as soon as room cleaned. Convenient walk to Southern Point and Duval St. It is about one mile to Mallory square so plan your walk and take it leisurely. The pool was very nice. We did not do breakfast but the outside location is very nice. Park in your spot... More

Another lucky find on our trip south. My cousin recommended The Blue Marlin because it was clean and simple at a good rate. We walked in on a hot June day and the A/C was just right. The room is clean, well-decorated and gave us a lot of room to spread out. The safe was a bonus we appreciated. It's... More
