We put our sons at Key Lantern while we stayed at Cheeca. It was a great place to stay. Price is unbeatable! They loved the location. We loved the cool retro room. Nice, large rooms. Towels were a little small. Bring your own shampoo and soap. The room was very quiet and the a/c was cold!

Key Lantern was the perfect place to stay for our family vacation. Dated, but clean and reasonably priced it gave us the ability to experience and enjoy more of the Keys life (fishing, snorkeling, and the beach) which is what we came for. We will defiantly stay here again!

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The beds were just right and wi-fi was free. It had a mini-fridge, but no coffee pot, our only dis-like. The lady at the office was more than helpful, even reminding us to use plenty of sunscreen! We totally enjoyed our stay here for $60/night. We stayed here 2 nights and stayed further...

Stumbled upon this small no frills Motel needing accommodations for a semi business trip. Just needed a bed at an affordable rate. Now this is our go-to place of choice, as well as other adult family members. Great location for base of operations when planning activities not centered around your sleeping accommodations. Clean rooms, safe area.

Motels was clean safe and fit our family of 5 perfectly. Old school motel with a kitchenette. Friendly staff with great recommendation about local things to see. Great location for day trips to key west or any of the other keys. A couple of dining choices out back make for a great evening experience watching the sun set.

Good value. Great staff. Very basic motel room with a refrigerator. It was clean and the bed was comfortable enough. I'd stay here again. Short walk to Lorelei Restaurant & Bar, where there was booze, food and music.

Having done the Holiday Inn one year, this particular visit was planned to swim with dolphins, nearer Key West, so, having expected to spend only 1 night here, we liked the Motel and Key so much with loads to do that we booked 2 extra nights here before moving on. Our philosophy is to get out and about. The Motel...

I recently made a trip to the Keys with a friend. She suggested that we stay at this location based on price and reviews. I was very pleasantly surprised with this little motor inn. It's not a fancy motel, in fact, it's very "Old Florida" right down to the dade county pine beams and terrazzo floors. But it is extremely...

We have stayed at this motel 3 times and it's clean and the folks that run it are real nice. The wifi isn't very good and the tv isn't very big but I don't think people go to the Keys to watch tv anyway. We like that it has a refrigerator and stove. Also cute little bar just around the...
