We stayed here for one night on our way down to Key West. The rooms were motel style, basic with a fridge and a microwave. The cable TV was good but the wi-fi was poor, it kept dropping out. The bar area was fine, the guy behind the bar was helpful and friendly. We ate here and the food was... More

I booked for the weekend of the full moon party at Morada Bay. The room was boiling hot, but luckily I found a nasty little floor fan in a closet. The toilet didn't flush. The only saving grace is that the manager was wonderful. If possible, rent elsewhere.

Once this place puts in their pool it will be a perfect place for keeping any boat! Loved the staff and the food! Great location to travel from Marco Island to here. We road our bikes all over and great place to pull out to fish.

A free cocktail for every adult in the party and a lovely hot breakfast and some good quality it coffee. This was a great vacation. The management was very caring and friendly. The room was also very clean. I would stay here again.

Found this place via a travel website and price was right for me. Its a hotel overlooking a marina, with a bar/restaurant 10 feet away. 2 story hotel, some rooms face the marina (where we stayed; not noisy at all); other rooms face inward to the island. Chris (manager) and his wife were very welcoming, friendly, and everytime i ran... More

We ate at the restaurant before a snorkeling trip. The place is cozy and the service was good, but the food was only ok, and it was relatively expensive. There was not much the kids liked on the menu. Still, an OK place to start a trip, because it is so convenient.

We stayed one night on our way to Key West last November. We chose it because of the location--close to a couple of nice restaurants and about halfway through our trip. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, bathroom was clean and the water was hot. It's not a 4 star hotel--but it does not pretend to be. The staff... More

The resort was great; all was clean and all employees attentive to our needs. This is a great place for family and for couples as well. I would highly recommend the resort, restaurant and the marina. I am available should anyone want a reference. Thank you so much.
