Nice basic motel on the main highway going through the Florida Keys. Rooms are clean, with TV, refrigerator, AC, etc. No pool, but the ocean is walking distance. If you just need a comfortable place to rest your head for the night at a good price, I would recommend.

It's no frills, but it's everything you need - for literally about half the price everything else was asking for. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are large, climate controlled, and have a kitchen and fridge. The place is a little old, but it was better quality than the joint we paid 50.00 MORE for the night we...

I've stayed at this "Mom & Pop" motel several times and have never been disappointed. You can't beat the price! Clean and comfortable rooms, delightful hosts, and great location...all at a bargain price in today's economy. You just can't beat that combination! Can't imagine staying anywhere else when I go to Islamorada!

This place offers Spartan but adequate accommodations for people traveling on a budget. The place looks as if it were built sometime in the ‘50’s and might have been updated around 1972, but if you’re just looking for a place to lay your head and aren’t hung up on aesthetics, this will do just fine. The room was old but...

Pricing is great. I have to admit the beds were real comfortable. It's not the Hilton but who cares its all about location ,booze and the freaking Florida keys. I will be back soon. Lots of great places to eat around here.

We have stayed in Islamorada many times, but this place consistenly delivers on cleanliness which is a lot to ask for down in the Keys. If you want a clean, no frills place to crash between dives or fishing trips this is your place. The innkeepers are very nice too. No mold problems like other Keys lodging...

This is a fifty's style Mom & Pop type motel. I stayed there in April for the first time and will stay there on my future trips to the Keys. This is an excellent place to stay if you take your bicycle as it is all flat land and there are all kinds of restaurants and attractions within easy cycling...

The room was large and clean as was the bath. There is no ambiance here, but just a block away is the Lorelei Restaurant & Cabana Bar right on the water with good music and drinks. If you just want a place to spend a night or two without any frills, this is a good value.

... not for great cleanliness and freshness of rooms. Floor and table seemed kind of greasy and pillowcases had stains on them. However, the room was huge and we had a full kitchen (could not use the oven though, because dishes and grills were so so dirty).

If you are looking for low cost shelter this is the place for you. Other than price, little to recommend this motel. Rooms are beaten hard, bathrooms are run down and beds are old. Like ambiance with your stay? Yard has broken down lawn furniture, no phone in the rooms, and the air conditioner blew fumes all night that smelled...
