We made a last minute reservation with our boat. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. It's small and efficient which made it very charming. The location is perfect. The slips are tight and getting their by boat beware the water is shallow. You should use the boat ramp down the street which is a little... More

We just returned home from 5 glorious days at La Jolla just prior to the July 4th holiday. It's Old Florida style with superb customer service. If you're looking for a 5 star resort with Egyptian cotton sheets and Dom Perignon in the fridge, keep looking. Our room was clean, comfortable, surprisingly quiet given the proximity to US 1 and...

The staff at the resort are Top Notch and very attentive. Our room was comfortable and clean. The best part about this stay was the use of bikes, paddleboards, and kayaks for no fee. The private beach area was relaxing and the other visitors were great to mingle with. I cant say enough good things about this property!

this is a fine little sweet more original Keys feeling place to stay. I was only there for a week. I'm giving it 4 only because I felt it was still pretty pricey for a no frills place but it was absolutely adequate and the staff were just excellent!

We went to Islamorada for a family wedding and decided to stay here instead of where most of the other guests were staying. Mainly because of costs. This place is tucked in next to the bay and it's almost like you're taking a step back in time. Quaint little buildings painted in Caribbean colors, a variety of rooms and suites... More

We only had one night in iskamorada and really wished we could have stayed here longer. From our checkin to checkout we were just delighted. The desk clerk was so friendly & full of great information about the resort itself, as well as the area. Our suites were spacious and had more than we needed: full kitchen, table nicely set... More

Old fashioned Keys resort, without the bells and whistles. If you're looking for quiet, no frills (no telephones or clocks in the room) this is the place for you. Clean and well maintained, with a sunset perfect location on the bayside. Staff is super friendly and accomodating.

Our vacation to Islamorada was going to be amazing, but La Jolla made it extra special. On site there are kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling gear, bikes and above all, front desk accommodations. The workers there are so nice and accommodating to everything. The young lady who works the front desk, Melissa, really worked with me on prices and which Unit... More
