Didn't know what to expect when we pulled in, but where pleasantly surprised to find a large room with kitchenette. The room was exceptionally clean. The back opened onto a beautiful canal. The owners were very personable and made special arrangements for us since we were delayed getting through Miami traffic. Wish we would have been able to stay longer.

I cannot say enough, about how nice Steve and Kim were. I was looking for a getaway, to relax, to do nothing, yet feel safe and comfortable. There is nothing you will lack, including money! Very considerate staff, place is easy on your pocket. Best place to be if you're looking to just clear your head and halt in a...

You can't ask for anything better. The room was clean even for an older room. The service was excellent. The location was great, close to everything. The water was right outside the back door. The hotel is right on the highway near attractions, boat rentals, charters and restaurants.

Clean rooms, A/C works well, hot water for showers. Helpful, friendly staff. With your boat docked right outside your room in the canal, a great fish cleaning station, this is a perfect place for maximizing time on the boat. Not a place for much more than showering and sleeping but if you have been out on the boat all day,...

It started as an adventure to a place we had never been. Once we checked in at this gem of a motel, we quickly realized that the adventure was over and it was time for unbridled enjoyment. The room, while still "old Fla Keys," was immaculate, well appointed and nice and cool when we opened the door! The staff could...

Loved my recent stay at the Royal Hawaiian Motel Botel. Clean rooms, kitchenette, boat dock right outside your door. The owners are so nice - had a great time chatting about places to go in Marathon and the lower Keys, great places to eat, etc. They had perfect suggestions for restaurants, beaches and other things to do.

I was very impressed with the hospitality the mangers provide for me and my family. The rooms were clean and cool when we arrived. The pool was also clean to swim in. They were very helpful to provide information on where to go for good food and sight seeing.

If you are in the Keys and looking for somewhere to spend your loyalty points, just turn around and go home. You obviously don't understand what the Keys are all about. . . Royal Hawaiian IS the Keys - I loved staying here and will be back. The rooms are very clean, affordable and the owners are super cool.
