Ok beds. Newer TV's although you're probably not going to be staying in and watching TV. Laundry available and charcoal grills. Our unit had a kitchen as well. Old school Florida drive up motel. Glad some of these are still around. Friendly owners and reasonable rates. Clean (but probably could have been cleaner). We would stay again.

It is an older place, so perfection is not expected; however, it needed to be cleaned properly including the room floor. The front desk clerk said the would send someone to immediately clean it and we left. When we came back, it looked and smelled the same. It is not maintained with fresh paint, general maintenance items that are needed... More

I was a little weary when we pulled up to the motel, but everything turned out great. Even though our room was facing the main road and the airport, we couldn't hear any traffic or airplanes once we were inside the room with the door shut. The place was clean. Fridge and microwave in the room. Beds were awesome! I... More

I was making an impromptu trip to the Keys, and didn't want to shell out the big bucks commanded by hotels in Key West, so I went with the recommendation of a friend on the Anchor Inn. The good: It's a small (7 room) hotel, centrally located in Marathon right on the Overseas Highway. The room was clean, and had... More

Kathy, the owner, is a sweetheart. We've stayed here a few times and love it. It's located right across from the airport, so we could sit outside and watch the planes come and go. VERY clean and affordable. Beds were comfy and clean. Ample bedding provided. Fridge and microwave. There is a patio area where you can grill. You can't... More

Best little mom and pop motel around. Had a great night. Spent the day at the beach and then checked in by already reserving it over the phone ... Key was left in the room and all we had to do was walk in. Great location to wonderful resutrants and excursions!
