STAY AWAY unless you want bed bugs! They wouldn't even admit it and it's pretty clear the numerous welts on my partners back were bed bug bites. We even showed the front desk person and because there were no "blood spots" in the bed she blew it off and claimed it couldn't be bed bugs. BS. I'm appalled they didn't... More

Carolyn C, Owner at Sea Dell Motel, responded to this review

After staying for four days without incident, you approached the desk clerk the morning of check out with some sort of bites. The room you occupied was torn apart and absolutely no evidence of any bed bugs was found. I am sorry that you experienced some sort of insect bites during your stay in the keys, but we can assure...

Lovely room - two double beds, kitchette and bathroom - and pool. Helpful and friendly staff who gave us lots of information about local attractions and places to visit. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed over for 1 night to break the journey down to Key West. We had arrived several hours earlier than check-in so we thought we would take a chance and see if our room would be ready. No problem so that was a good start. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and gave us local information... More

i stayed here back in march for a weekend getaway with my wife. We had stayed here previously and it was reasonably priced and was clean and had the key west vibe so we decided to re-visit. it is not near key west, but it isnt an unreasonably long drive from key west and you save several hundred per night....

No complaints! We used it as our home base for our fishing and diving trip and couldn't have been happier. Real central location on marathon, clean rooms, real friendly staff, and a good all around place to stay. Will be using this as our rental place every year.

We found this place when we went on memorial weekend. The price is great and the stay was great. You can walk to several places nearby and there is a Publix grocery store just around the corner. We have stayed several times and its always super clean and enjoyable.

Nice hotel for the price. Clean rooms. There were plenty of outlets for all of our electronics. Mini fridge microwave and coffee pot in the room. Fresh water pool that we wanted to go in but had thunderstorms😔. The manager was also very helpful with suggestions on local places to eat.

Very accommodating (we arrived very late 'past midnight' yet the owner didn't mind getting/waking up), very clean and furnished room. We didn't expect much for such an affordable price. And I'm enjoying the book they gave me. If you need a stop over in Marathon, FL stay here.

A good clean value. More than what you should expect for the price in the Keys. Great little well kept hotel. Definitely has a 50's motel vibe, but it has been repainted beautifully. The rooms have a refrigerator and microwave, and plenty of space to hang wet gear. Out front there is a lovely little pool. The hotel is close... More
