Disappointed that I spent over $600 for the week. All the pictures must have been years ago, very dirty and unkempt. The maid did not change our bedding the whole time we were there. If your expecting a pool... There is no pool to swim in, it appears that it has been empty with yellow tape on it for years.... More

If you want a 5 star luxury resort, then go to the famous named ones down the road. If you want to capture the essence of old Florida Keys then take a step back in time in this sweet, very clean and very quaint little jewel of an inn! I visited my great grandparents all through my childhood in the... More

It is true that you get what you pay for generally, but in this case it is not. Following, this experience we stayed in a whole host of hotels in a similar price range - £110 per night/ $160 approx and we got much much better comfort and quality. This place was so bad, that if they were charging 'peanuts'... More

The board of health definitely needs to make a visit to this property!! It is the dirtiest most undermaintaned places have ever visited. The curtain rod which happened to actually be a PVC pipe fell on my husband's head in the middle of the night. We slept on towels because the sheets were blood stained and ripped on a bed... More

I think you need to have realistic expectations when staying anywhere in the keys. If you are used to the Marriot or Hyatt this is not the place for you. However, we know that many of the accommodations in the keys are older beach style rooms. Yellow tail Inn Is a older, family owned place. There is a small beach... More

Oh the stories you get from staying here. Now its not the most expensive place by far in the area but certain thing should be expected. Its not unreasonable to expect: no massive amount of mold in the shower, curtains that cover the windows, towels in the room that are not riped and frayed, sheets for the pull out, more... More

I almost don't have words for how terribly unkempt this place is. To quote part of their policy ' A service fee of $12.00 plus tax will be charged daily and includes use of beach towels, wireless internet, parking and use of dvd movies from office. No refunds because of our small size....' There were no beach towels provided, the... More

We stayed 2 nights in February. Coming back from Key West, not having been able to find any room there. That was after 20th something places in our way back displayed the NO VACANCY sign. We would have accepted anything. To our surprise, our room was directly on the sandy beach, nice and comfortable, including wifi! Ideal for a day... More

Stayed 2/16. Right on route 1. This older hotel is belongs to a complex of 3 small hotels all managed by a single small office. The guy who checked us in was extraordinarily helpful. We looked at the rooms before signing up for them which was helpful in allowing us to select two adjoining second floor rooms resulting in a... More
